New Translation of Egyptian Book "Jihad is the Way"
Palestinian Media Watch has commissioned an English translation of the book Jihad is the Way by Mustafa Mashhur. Mashhur led the Egyptian based Muslim Brotherhood from 1996 until his death in 2002. According to Wikipedia, Mashhur was a wealthy Arab landowner like his predecessor.
According to Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik of Palestinian Media Watch, the book's main points are:
1. Muslims are "masters of the world"
2. The Islamic nation's "rightful position... the teachers of humanity"
3. "There is no other option but Jihad for Allah."
4. Fighting Israel is "Jihad against the criminal, thieving gangs of Zion"
5. The [Muslim] Brotherhood has not grown weary and will not abandoned Jihad.
