Israel seeks ban on Egypt’s popular MB

In a blatant and clear event of interference in foreign affairs a statement by Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon ascertained that Israel would object the Muslim Brotherhood being part of a future government and would work on banning the group from standing in any upcoming elections. According to the statement the group follows an extremist policy with an agenda.

The MB, established in 1928 has long renounced violence, and is regarded as Egypt’s largest, most popular and best-organized opposition group. Although it was banned during the rule of the recently deposed tyrant Mubarak it has been unreservedly recognized by Egypt’s current ruling generals. In fact following Mubarak’s ouster one of its members was chosen as part of a 10 man committee to amend ten of the most undemocratic articles in Egypt’s constitution.

Ayalon claimed it was normal for democracies to ban extremist parties maintaining that Israel itself banned an anti-Arab party in the past. He ended his statement alleging that Israel is not asking the Muslim world anything they did not expect from themselves.
