Complete Press Release:
Citizens of the World,
We are Anonymous.
Ever since its revolution that shook the world, Egypt has had its fate undecided. Predators who seek to control are waiting to strike at the right moment. They are waiting to take over the country and make it so that another revolution is impossible. We cannot allow this.
The Muslim Brotherhood has become a threat to the revolution Egyptians had fought for, some with their lives. They seek to destroy the sovereignty of the people of Egypt as well as other nations including the United States.
The Muslim Brotherhood started as a benevolent group of people with fair and just intentions. However, as decades went by, corruption seized its mission of good and turned it into a power-hungry organization bent on taking over soverign arab states in its quest to seize power from them. They say this is necessary in order to unify the muslim nations into one islamic state, which is a lie.
We will not allow this to happen.
Their tactics are very similar to tactics used by the Church of Scientology and ideas implemented in Freemasonry. A person may join only when presented in front of the Grand Master, or the Murshid, and is ordered to adhere to a solemn vow, to follow all orders of the Murshid, without hesitation. They claim to be anti-freemasonry, however they follow distinct principles taken from it. If you were to leave the Brotherhood or present any threat to it, they would take it to offense and begin to intimidate you and put your life as well as your loved ones in danger. This has been experienced by many former followers of the Brotherhood, including citizens in the United States and Great Britain who realized they made a terrible mistake. The Muslim Brotherhood is a threat that must be dealt with.
To those listening now, this is not a threat towards the religion of Islam. The Muslim Brotherhood, as well as terrorist organizations affiliating with the religion, defiled and destroyed the very essence of what the religion preaches. Therefore, the Muslim Brotherhood does not represent the true ideas of Islam. In our collective, many of us are Muslim, yet we fight against the corruption in society and the injustice that comes with it.
Infused with its blatant, corrupt ways, the Brotherhood is now a threat to the people.
Therefore, Anonymous has decided to destroy the Muslim Brotherhood. We shall proceed to dismantle any form of its organization from the internet. Nothing will stop us. We will show no mercy.
Operation Brotherhood Takedown, engaged.
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not Forgive.
We do not Forget.
