Strategy and Doctrine

  • Barry Rubin


Each Islamic movement in Egypt has an ideology and strategy to gain power for itself or make Egypt a more Islamic country. This chapter discusses the views of the Muslim Brotherhood, the jama’at, the Jam’iyat, charismatic preachers, and mainstream clerics on contemporary Egypt’s key domestic issues, the tactics they use to promote their aims, attitude toward reform and revolution, and their vision of a proper Islamic polity.
