April 19, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - According the group's website [source, http://www.ikhwanweb.com/article.php?id=28398] Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood is on the verge of launching a television channel/network which will provide a 24x7 opportunity to propagandize and spread the Ikhwan's creed [now curiously missing from the group's English language website], "Allah is our objective, the prophet is our leader, the Koran is our law, Jihad is our way, dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."
Mohsen Radhi, a leader of the MB and alleged journalist, refused to disclose the nature of the ownership or funding of the new venture, but stated, "that it would better express the moderate views of the Brotherhood [and] display a message that would achieve renaissance, development, and culture in the Egyptian society, as well as displaying different issues in an exciting informative, and unbiased manner, that will suit all sincere Egyptian citizens and better contribute to the liberation of Egyptian media."
The announcement was first made on one of the Islamist's prime web portals, Islamonline, which is funded and controlled by interests in Qatar in conjunction with guidance from Yusuf al-Qaradawi, perhaps the MB's chief public exponent of terrorism, having as recently as 2009 stated, "I will shoot Allah's enemies, the Jews, and they will throw a bomb at me, and thus I will seal my life with martyrdom."

In less than 90 days, Egypt has been transformed from reliable U.S. ally to the nerve center of the revolutionary Islamist renaissance in the Arab world. With the establishment of the MB television network and its jump into electoral politics there seem few impediments to it gaining ultimate control of the nation.
