According to a February 7th Shia news report:
A senior member of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has expressed gratitude to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei for his support of the Egyptian revolution.Gee that doesn't sound very "moderate" to me..and didn't our Director of National Intelligence James Clapper say the Muslim Brotherhood was largely secular? Gee but "Islamic awakening" doesn't sound very secular does it?
Kamal al-Halbavi made the remark in an interview with the state-funded BBC Persian on Sunday night.
Halbavi further expressed hope that Egypt would have “a good government, like the Iranian government, and a good president like Mr. Ahmadinejad, who is very brave.”
When asked about the Muslim Brotherhood’s opinion of Ayatollah Khamenei’s statements on Egypt’s developments, Halbavi said, “Many thanks for Imam Khamenei and all who support the revolution in Egypt.”
Ayatollah Khamenei said in Tehran’s Friday prayers last week that the recent developments in North Africa are the result of “Islamic awakening, which followed the great Islamic Revolution of the Iranian nation.”
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution made reference to Egyptians’ fight for “dignity and honor” and noted that Mubarak’s biggest crime was turning Egypt into an instrument in the hands of the United States.
And just to prove that he meant what he said, when he went to Iran this week Kamal el-Helbawi was even more generous with his praise. Saying that the Iranian regime serves as a model of resistance against the West’s domination and serves as a model for the Muslim world and Ummah (community), and that Iran should be seen as a model of "justice, unity among Shia and Sunni, human rights and respect for humanity."
But wait! Didn't the liberals make fun of John McCain during the election when he talked about the Sunni and Shia working together? Certainly the Muslim Brotherhood can't get along with Iran. Well watch the video below and you decide.
