Inside the Brotherhood
This is the first in–depth study of the relationship between the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and its own members. Drawing on years of participant observation, extensive interviews, previously inaccessible organizational documents, and dozens of memoirs and writings, the book provides an intimate portrayal of the recruitment and socialization of Brothers, the evolution of their intricate social networks, and the construction of the peculiar ideology that shapes their everyday practices.
Kandil shows why attempts to compare the Brotherhood to secular social movements or typical forms of religious activism obscure its unique nature, and he seeks instead to unlock the organization s unique logic. Building on his original research, Kandil reinterprets the Brotherhood s slow rise and rapid downfall from power in Egypt, and compares it to the Islamist subsidiaries it created and the varieties it inspired around the world.
This timely book will be of great interest to students and scholars of the politics of the Middle East and to anyone who wants to understand the dramatic events unfolding in Egypt and elsewhere in the wake of the Arab uprisings.

An explosive device detonated as it was being planted on a railway track in Al-Wasta town, Beni Suef governorate, Egypt. At least one assailant was killed in the blast. Following the explosion, three additional devices were discovered and defused along the tracks. No group claimed responsibility; however, officials attributed the attack to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Dalil Boubaker Defends the UOIF
Following the publication by the United Arab Emirates of a list of terrorist organizations including the UOIF, Dalil Boubaker, Great Mosque Rector in Paris, sent a message of support to the Organization.
“This decision is appalling and unjustified, and constitutes a disturbing amalgam”.
“If the fight against terrorism and its networks is an absolute necessity that we support, it must not turn into a witch hunt. The UOIF cannot be described as a terrorist organization”.
“We regard the UOIF as a reliable institution working for social peace and the integration of Islam and Muslims in the French landscape, in conformity with the Republican laws”, adds Paris Great Mosque which awaits the Emirati authorities “to reconsider their decision in order to avoid any ambiguity and therefore fight terrorism effectively”.
