This week I focused on the Muslim Brotherhood in relation to terrorism. The first article I found discusses the Prince of Wales’ visit to Saudi Arabia and the issues that were discussed. During the conversation between the Prince of Wales and the Saudi hosts, the Saudi’s questioned and articulated London’s discussion to allow the Muslim Brotherhood to operate freely. The reason that Saudi Arabia is up in arms about Britian’s unwillingness to claim the Brotherhood as terrorists is because the U.K is allies with Saudi Arabia. According to deep investigations, there is no reason to believe that the group is tied to terrorism, however by claiming this Saudi Arabia would be infuriated.
The second article I looked at hits on many allegations related to the Muslim Brotherhood and their involvement in extreme military acts of violence. It is not always easy to say if the Muslim Brotherhood is related to terrorism because there are many factors involved, such as agreements between countries.
