In an effort to invigorate the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the group’s leaders, Magdy Shalash, reminded supporters that the organization’s main objective is establishing an “Islamic Caliphate” based on “Sharia” law.
“The Muslim Brotherhood was established for a general overall purpose, namely, the return of the comprehensive entity of the Umma (Muslim community)…the Islamic Caliphate, which is based on many Sharia proofs,” Shalash wrote in a Facebook post on Wednesday that was translated by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT).
While many Islamist apologists attempt to defend the use of terms like “caliphate” or “jihad” as purely religious and peaceful concepts, Shalash does not try to hide the Brotherhood’s true colors.
He calls for “the return of all states Islam ruled, such as Andalusia and others, to the quarters of the coming Caliphate.” Andalusia is part of today’s Spain.
Islamist sympathizers who view the Brotherhood as a moderate force that only seeks to increase Islam’s role in political life fail to acknowledge the organization’s core mandate – to establish Sharia law and firm rule over all territories ever controlled by Islamic governance, no matter how long ago.
