Chapter Summary

The history of the movement's heritage and its ideas strongly influence the intellectual expression of the Brotherhood in Europe. This chapter presents three interviews dealing with movement's heritage. First of all, there is this declaration from a partisan who thinks that the heritage of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) consists first and foremost in a fairly complete methodology for interpreting Islamic texts. Next, a French partisan compares the methodology of the MB to that of the Moroccan left, because it is connected to it by family ties. Finally, a young British sympathizer with the thought of the Brotherhood endorses the value of a general approach, an open manner of being and acting. In the more liberal context of Great Britain, it is more common to hear Islam spoken of as a societal alternative, especially with regard to statements about the application of Islamic law in family matters.

Keywords: French partisan; movement's heritage; Muslim Brotherhood (MB)
