Editorial Reviews

For many Americans the morning of September 11 2001 made the threat of Islamic Fundamentalism a grave reality. But long before al Qaeda the roots of the threat to America from the Middle East grew in an organization called the Muslim Brotherhood. Journey to Cairo Egypt where the Brotherhood was born in the late 1920s. Learn how Brotherhood members passed radical ideologies to legions of followers including Ayman Zawahiri who would become Osama bin Laden's right-hand man. Today some experts say the Brotherhood could be a powerful ally in fighting the war on terror while others believe that its dark history makes this movement one that can never be trusted.

2005's "Brotherhood of Terror" is a short (50 minutes) history lesson on the Muslim Brotherhood, the ideological father of the present day Egyptian political movement that briefly held power in the wake of the "Arab Spring." It is also an ideological ancestor of al-Qaeda and other modern radical Islamic groups. This DVD is a standard History Channel product interweaving documentary footage, interviews, still photography, and a few short dramatizations to recapture critical points in a fascinating historical narrative.

The Muslim Brotherhood had its roots in the 1920's in a corrupt Egypt ruled by a playboy king but still dominated by the presence of British military forces securing the interests of the British Empire. For an unhappy but articulate schoolteacher named al-Banni, the British presence represented a Western decadence corrupting both the Government of Egypt and its Muslim people. The necessary response was a return to fundamental Islam and the rule of Sharia. Al-Banni founded the Muslim Brotherhood, which grew exponentially inside and outside Egypt. It offered a peaceful public face concealing a private militant arm. The Brotherhood cooperated with the military coup that removed the King of Egypt in 1952, but the subsequent failure to gain a share of power led to rebellion followed by government crack-downs. Ironically, the inprisonment of large numbers of the organization both bonded and radicalized the members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood's repeated failures to seize power in Egypt would split the group into at least two factions, one advocating continuing violent jihad, the other a more peaceful path to power and reform through existing political processes.
