The closing of Al-Geel Al-Muslim [the Muslim Generation] schools which are administrated by the Muslim Brotherhood is followed by the closing of some other Islamic schools and civil organizations. The timing of such procedures shows that it is correct that America included the Brotherhood in its list of the groups supporting terrorists. America considers any Islamic civil organization part of the Brotherhood.
Sources related to the Brotherhood say that at the time when security men closed Al-Geel schools, located in Al-Gharbia governorate, the deputy of the American ambassador to Egypt and the Egyptian Prime Minister were visiting the governorate – which raises a lot of doubts.
Daya’a Rashwan, the Editor-in-Chief of the “Religious Situation” report [prepared by the Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies], says: “America acts foolishly. It tries to expand its war [against terrorism]. [Why is this?] We do not understand. It has not achieved immediate results from its war against Afghanistan, may be one of the reasons for including the Brotherhood in the list of the groups supporting terrorism.”
Mamdouh Ismail, lawyer of the Gama’at Al-Islamiya, says that although the discourse of the Muslim Brotherhood with America is not hostile, the Brotherhood is not free of American threats.
