The flag of the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt

Reader comment on item: Turmoil in Egypt

It is shocking when you examine the flag of the Muslim brotherhood and it is as follows

1. It is green and the significance of the color green in islam is unclear. If you read the islamic sources you get contradictory and confusing opinions and in short no one really knows why Muslims regard the color green as the color of islam.

2. Then you will see a cover of what is clearly the 1923-1924 Cairo edition of the Qur'an

3. And then you will see two swords! Oh this is supposed to be the religion of peace remember?

4. But the scary part of this flag is the word A3iDDUU and this is a Quranic word from ayat al-irhab or the infamous Q8:60 or the terrorism verse

How disgusting and despicable

It is all in black and white or is it green?

I do not think that the US and the west should have anything to do with a terrorist organization and in this case it is al-ikhwan al-muslimeen or the Muslim brotherhood
