ISGAP Flashpoint

The Muslim Brotherhood and the Evolution of Jihadist Antisemitism

The Muslim Brotherhood has its forerunners: Wahhabism and Salafism, both of which are purist movements designed to purge Islam of all corrupting influences. Wahhabism was founded in 1744 by Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab al-Tamini. Building on its principles, Salafism emerged in the mid-nineteenth century as a collective movement. Salafists, deriving their name from the word salaf, meaning “pious ancestor,” promote the reestablishment of the Caliphate and are opposed to modern forms of government that allow tolerance of other religions. They prepared the soil for the emergence of the Jihadist organizations of the 20th century, chief among them being the Muslim Brotherhood.
