“The Brotherhood we know has died and was buried without a funeral at the last rift,” was a new testimony that came from the terrorist group’s home.
This evidence clearly embodies the depth of the crisis that has befallen the head of the organization, which has split between Ibrahim Munir, the acting General Guide, who lives in London, and Mahmoud Hussein, the group’s former secretary general (Istanbul), both warring fronts over money, power and influence.
Coinciding with the unprecedented fragmentation hitting the terrorist organization, and its division between two fronts, a “third entity” emerged from the organization, which attacked Mahmoud Hussein and Ibrahim Munir and called the group’s youth to a third path , away from those he described. as “corrupt and traitors”.
In a testimony in a series of articles entitled: (Why was the Brotherhood? And what is the importance of its survival? And for how long?), Ahmed Abdel Aziz, a Brotherhood leader and member of the presidential team of ousted President Mohamed Morsi, said: “The Brotherhood we know (and I’m not saying the call or the idea) has died.” and was buried without burial, with this last division. ”
He added, “This division has been stubbornly and persistently led by Mahmoud Hussein, the group’s former secretary general, and I do not absolve Ibrahim Munir (Deputy Guide General) of responsibility. His lack of leadership elements, and “the weakness of his personality, tempted Hussein to seize the group’s joints, decisions and abilities for a period of eight whole years.”
And Abdulaziz previously said through his Twitter account that “the two clashing teams for the leadership of the Brotherhood were one team eight years ago, and both are partners in what happened, so neither of them has the right (today ) to accuse the other … Both are expected to be held accountable before the rules of Brotherhood ”.
In conjunction with Abdel Aziz’s sharp attack on the two fronts of the Brotherhood, Brotherhood leader Ashraf Abdel Ghaffar continued his criticism on the fronts of Munir and Hussein, addressing them, saying: “What has each of the two conflicting parties done over the leadership, and each of them claims that he preserves the group, leads it and manages it He is responsible for it, and for its members, a legal, moral and religious responsibility.
“Do something, or go away,” said Abdul Ghaffar, a refugee in Turkey for many years.
Essam Talima, the Brotherhood leader, and the former director of the office of Youssef Al-Qaradawi (one of the historical leaders of the Brotherhood), accused those leaders of corruption and betrayal, and in a previous post told him by his official account on “Facebook”: “Imagine the number of statements made by the leaders of the group, and the number The meetings held to prove that the leadership (this or that) is right and not separated not, and how much is planning to control institutions, money and channels. ”
The testimonies of Abdel Aziz, Talima and Abdel Ghaffar against the two warring fronts at the top of the terrorist organization’s head, according to Hisham Al-Najjar, an expert in the affairs of political Islam movements, in an exclusive interview with “Al-Ain Al -Akhbar ”as an indication of the continuation of division, rivalry and conflict over who leads the organization, and excludes the others with the inability to Which front will be decisive?
He added: “This in turn leaves room for the presence of those who oppose them together in an effort to attract attention and attendance and make some gains during this floating and ambiguous stage because they are sure is that they will not be able to achieve that in the future. ”
The motive for the attack, and Al-Najjar’s talk, is that “these voices are deliberately pushing the two fronts to find a foothold for them in the next stage, and in the context of administrative positions and financial loot, in in view of the humility of their ability to present themselves as an entity, or a stream capable of replacing the two conflicting fronts. ”
In turn, Ahmed Ban, an expert in the affairs of political Islam movements, said in an interview with “Al-Ain News” that the attack on Brotherhood leaders comes as an expression of the organization’s bases that feel shocked. about those leaders and the level of what they came down to.
He believed that the testimonies emanating from the Brotherhood’s house were “a form of denial that the idea is not viable and the futility of any reform, or revision, to save the idea or the organization.”
The conflict arose between the “London Front” led by Ibrahim Munir, and the Istanbul Front, on the other hand, led by Mahmoud Hussein, after the latter recently set up a “committee to guide the work.” announced “and the election of the leader, Mustafa Tolba, as his representative, as the group’s guide for a period of 6 months.
In its response, the Muslim Brotherhood (Munir’s Front) issued a statement entitled “They are not of us and we are not of them,” in which it announced the dismissal of Mustafa Tolba, in addition to the dismissal of the leaders of the former Secretary-General’s Front, including Medhat Al-Haddad, Mohamed Abdel-Wahhab, Hammam Ali Youssef, Rajab Al-Banna, and Mamdouh.Congratulations.
A statement by Munir’s Front, recently published by the group’s “Brotherhood Sight” website, said: “He is not of us and we are not of him, everyone who left the line, and everyone who contributed to dividing the group, and falsely repeating slander. ”
With the establishment of the Istanbul Front for a “committee to carry out the work of the guide,” the group wrote the last chapter of its end, as two official organizations are inaugurated for the first time, each with a official spokesman, and a Shura office, the first in London and the other in Istanbul.
