Removal vs. Exile

This week I am focusing on how recent events in Egypt have led to the removal and permanent exile of many Muslim Brotherhood leaders. Qatar, the wealthy gulf state was recently forced to heed to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates agreement to permanently remove any exiled leaders of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. Despite the constant denial from the Brotherhood, many parties see the Brotherhood as the source of the bedlam taking place in and around Egypt. Many also see the Brotherhood as being directly related to the dangerous Islamist militant parties. In May a retired Libyan general proposed a “cleanse” of the Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt. According to the renegade general the Muslim Brotherhood should be blamed for the lawlessness that has infested the country.
