MB Chairman Sends Best Wishes to all Copts and Christians Worldwide

The Muslim Brotherhood’s chairman Dr. Mohamed Badie extended his warmest wishes to the Copts in Egypt and around the world for the celebrations of Christmas, 2010.
History witnesses that the MB has never tried to marginalize the Copts’ political activities in ruling institutions where the relationship between the Copts and the Muslim Brotherhood in the general aspects of life has always been an example of toleration and appreciation.
According to the group’s founder, Imam Hassan El-Banna:
"Islam cares most of all about the human bondage between all members of the human race. It also came with mercy from Allah our Lord to all humanity, and prohibits assault, even in cases of anger and enmity. Furthermore, Islam recommends reverence among all citizens even if their creeds and religions differ, and treating the People of the Book with kindness; as they have the same rights that we have, and carry the same obligations. We, the members of the Muslim Brotherhood, recognize that we do not call for ethnic discrimination, or sectarian fanaticism.
It is with this ideology that El-Banna and the followers of his MB movement defined a bond of brotherhood for the entire Islamic nation that is comprised of various creeds, languages, and religions, where they firmly believe that non-Muslims are part of this nation and that the non-Muslim minority in this country believe they will find equality, peace, and justice under the shade of our religion even if its teachings are not included in their creed.
The MB has followed, is following and will always adhere to the principle that Islam respects the general bond between all humans, as it came to spread virtue, resist vice, and respect all ideals.
