Chapter Summary

During the 1970's and 80's, the Muslim Brotherhood movement touched the minds and hearts of many young intellectuals. Their great influence was acquired through the circulation of ideas in Arab societies that wanted to renew the links between their Islamic heritage and reconnect with their own historicity. On the national scene at the time of the elections in 1987, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood clearly affirmed their objectives for the islamization of society. Moreover, they seek to implant a real international network especially for the purpose of consolidating the movement and their leadership. At the beginning of the 21st century, the movement of the Brotherhood continues to oppose the cultural religious and political hegemony of the West. The Brotherhood also maintains its legal opposition to a number of secular regimes, especially when such regimes are perceived as despotic.
