The Muslim Brotherhood - an introduction

"Islam is the solution"

Interest has been spiking of late in the Muslim Brotherhood, the Egypt-based group whose candidate Mohammad Moursi assumed the Presidency of Egypt on June 30, 2012. Candidates from the affiliated Freedom and Justice Party comprised the largest party in Egypt's parliament before it was dissolved by the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF). Affiliate and offshoot movements are present in Gaza, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq.
