    The Associated Press is reporting this:

    "Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, the former military chief who removed Egypt’s Islamist president and who is now poised to win the post in elections this month, said the Muslim Brotherhood will never return as an organization, accusing it of using militant groups as cover to destabilize the country....

    "El-Sissi’s comments were a stark signal of his intention to ensure the elimination of the 86-year-old Brotherhood as both a political and ideological force in the country. He is building on an unprecedented popular resentment of the group, after its rise to power in the last three years."

    Robert Spencer of thinks that it is unlikely that the Muslim Brotherhood can be totally stamped out in Egypt. And he adds,

    "...And whatever may happen in Egypt, the Brotherhood’s subsidiaries in the United States, such as the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim American Society, and the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations are thriving, and have gullible government, law enforcement, and media types in their pockets. So it is hard to envision a dark future for the Muslim Brotherhood."
