How the Muslim Brotherhood Hijacked the Revolution and State in Egypt

  • 19 June 2019

The lecture addresses key questions concerning the Muslim Brotherhood plot against the Egyptian state, looking at its far reach, which was initiated by coordination between Muslim Brotherhood leaders, and regional and global actors from 2005. It offers significant insights on the relationship between Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood, particularly the role of Al Jazeera TV in inciting chaos during the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ revolutions. The lecture also examines factors that saw the Egyptian people revolt against the Muslim Brotherhood, and highlights the strength of the military, which was able to take power back from the Muslim Brotherhood and ultimately thwart their plot to overthrow the state. Finally, the lecture touches on current schemes threatening Arab national security, and proposes some potential counter measures.
