RECOGNIZING THE BROTHERHOOD - The sworn objective and the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood is:
"Allah is our objective.
The Prophet is our leader.
Qur'an is our law.
Jihad is our way.
Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope." The Obama Administration has begun a relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood stating, "The political landscape in Egypt has changed, and is changing. It is in our interests to engage with all of the parties that are competing for parliament or the presidency," a State Department official told Reuters. Negotiate this: The only acceptable final agreement for the Muslim Brotherhood will be the surrender of our Constitution and the establishment of sharia as the law under a Caliphate.
