The growing tension that had marked the war of position during period 2 (1987- 1995) culminated in 1995 as numerous high ranked Muslim Brothers were arrested and set before military trials – the first ones for the Brotherhood since the “Great Infestation” under Nasser. After the state’s measures of intimidation and threat as well as its dissemination of the narrative of the Brotherhood as “enemy of the nation” in period 2 had not sufficed to curb the group’s growing popularity and electoral successes, the state now resorted to blank repression. Further, it resorted to fully excluding the Brotherhood from the parliament and the syndicates.
