The Egyptian government approached the 18 signatories of the Arab League’s Anti-Terrorism Treaty, urging them to crack down against the Muslim Brotherhood. The request was submitted by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nabil Fahmy (considered to be a close friend of Washington).
According to Cairo, the Muslim Brotherhood, of which former president Mohamed Morsi is a member, has continuously supported terrorism abroad and has practiced it in Egypt.
The Muslim Brotherhood is officially represented in the governments of Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Gaza and Jordan. It was funded by the Gulf Cooperation Council and backed by the United-States. Today, they seem to be deprived of such props.
