(CHAPTER IV)
THE MOSLEM (BLACK) BROTHERHOOD

"Ours is the highest ideal, the holiest cause and the purest way. Those who criticize us have fed from the tables of Europe. They want to live as Europe has taught them--to dance, to drink, to revel, to mix the sexes openly and in public."

Sheikh Hassan el Banna
Supreme Guide, Moslem Brotherhood

A FEW days later Moustafa looked at me and said: " Artour, when you first came we thought you were a spy because you looked like an American. Now I gaze at your face. I find it is as dark as ours. You have a mustache. You dress like us. You eat with us. You are one of us, Artour. I can now call you akhi, brother." With this Moustafa placed his hand on my shoulder affectionately. I had "arrived."

It delighted me to know this, for it meant I had taken on sufficient Arab coloration to attempt getting inside the Ikhwan el Muslimin--the Moslem (often called the Black) Brotherhood1--the ultra-fanatically religious Moslem group, which even the Green Shirts feared, and which they suspected had placed the bomb that exploded in front of their headquarters the day I first called on Hussein. The Moslem Brotherhood was, in fact, far larger, far more powerful, and far more deadly
