So, “Let us break France and make it cry.” How did the Brotherhood turn Morocco’s victory into a “battle” and a field for fighting?
While the Arab capitals danced from the ocean to the Gulf with joy at the qualification of the Moroccan national team to the semi-finals of the World Cup, the “terrorist” Brotherhood organization was in another valley.
The Moroccan national team wrote its name in the history books and sparked a new resounding surprise by qualifying for the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup, in an achievement that is the first of its kind for an Arab or African team, by winning 1-0 over former European champions Portugal in the quarter-finals in Qatar, to qualify for the semi-finals. The final against France, the defending champion.
That “precious” Moroccan victory, which was considered an Arab achievement in the field of sports, prompted Arab leaders and officials to congratulate Morocco’s leadership and people, while the “terrorist” Brotherhood had another opinion.
The organization, which is accustomed to “jumping” on any “victory” or “achievement”, did not leave the opportunity that it dyed with its color; So he made “religion” a symbol of “victory” and qualifying for an “Arab Spring”, which he sees only in his imagination as possible.
How did the Brotherhood try to turn the helm of victory into a religious match?
While the Brotherhood’s accounts remained silent about Morocco’s victory over Portugal and its qualification for the match with France, most of them could not distance themselves from that “precious” occasion, to promote their ready-made agenda, prepared in advance to jump on any Arab “victory” in a field, and turn it into a battle between right and wrong.
Here is the fugitive Egyptian Brotherhood member and member of the Board of Trustees of what is known as the “Union of Muslim Scholars,” Muhammad al-Sagheer, who turned the football match celebrated by the Arab world into an occasion for what he called the “Arab Sports Spring,” referring to the protests that swept Arab countries in 2011 and what Years followed, and the destruction it caused to countries that are still suffering from it until this moment.
The fugitive Brotherhood described, in a tweet on his Twitter account, the match as “the field,” which is the Brotherhood’s view rooted in the organization’s literature, which sees any competition between Arabs and the West as nothing but a fierce battle.
Al-Saghir tried to promote his “toxins” in his tweet, saying: “Here is the sports version of the Arab Spring that is completed after the Moroccans won the Morocco-Portugal match,” demanding that a lesson be taken, even from the “field of play.”
While the Palestinian issue is an issue that the Arabs consider their first issue, and there is no evidence for that from the statements of the Chinese-Gulf and Chinese-Arab summits yesterday, however, Al-Saghir tried, like his “brothers,” to exploit any event to play on the emotions of their followers, saying: “Raising the flag of Palestine has become the badge of victory… No to normalization.
The little boy was not alone in his wanderings; Indeed, a member of what is known as the “Association of Muslim Scholars”, the Maghreb Brotherhood, Hassan bin Ali bin Muhammad al-Muntasir al-Kattani, tried to take advantage of the upcoming match between Morocco and France to promote the terrorist organization’s agenda.
Al-Katani considered, in a tweet on his Twitter account, France “the enemy of God,” calling for “abandoning its tongue and its laws and complete independence from it.” However, the most appropriate way for the Brotherhood to do so is “breaking it and crying it out to join those who cried before it,” in reference to Najah’s success. Morocco’s national team, in winning over some teams in the World Cup in Qatar, the last of which was Portugal.
While the division between the London and Istanbul fronts was the title of the stage, Morocco’s victory united their “malicious” goals to jump on that victory. Speaking on both fronts, they congratulated the “Lions of the Atlantic” on the “victory”, which they dedicated to “all Arab and Islamic peoples”.
And one of the Brotherhood’s accounts on “Twitter”, which puts a picture under the title “The Official Page of the Muslim Brotherhood,” said: We say congratulations to the lions of Morocco.. Your victory is a victory for our nation and restores memories of Andalusia.
Battle of Andalusia?
As is the custom of the Brotherhood, that page called the Portugal-Morocco match a “battle” in which the Moroccans overthrew the Portuguese, who had five shields on their flag, which they said was “a symbol of the Portuguese killing of five Andalusian Muslim kings,” while the seven castles with the flag “a symbol of the Portuguese taking seven Islamic castles.” after the fall of Andalusia.
The Brotherhood page increased its claims, saying, “The central red shield symbol, filled with yellow castles and smaller blue shields, symbolize victories against the Moroccans… The smaller blue shields represent the five Moroccan kings who were killed by the first king of Portugal, Afonso I.”
The Brotherhood organization in Yemen was also on time, as if the call was an order to all Brotherhood networks throughout the Arab world, to politicize the Moroccan victory. The Yemeni Brotherhood leader, Tamim al-Dari, said on his Facebook account: “If an Arab country wins the World Cup, will the glory of the Arabs be restored? Our glory will only return with the glory of Islam?”
As for the extremist Yemeni Brotherhood, Abdullah Ahmed Ali al-Audaini, he attacked the celebrations of Yemeni citizens for Morocco’s victory, considering them “evil.”
Al-Audaini, a senior leader of the extremist Yemeni Brotherhood, claimed that “the Yemeni masses succeed only in celebrations and marches, but where is their role in changing the evils that occur?”
And he added, following his speech on his Facebook account: “Oh, you would like to utter a word only, and if you uttered it, we would not have seen an evil being committed,” referring to the Yemeni fans who took to the streets to celebrate the victory of the Moroccan national team.
The streets.. an alternative arena for the Brotherhood
Not only did the Brotherhood and its members tweet on the pages of social networking sites, but one of the squares of the Ashrafieh neighborhood in the Lebanese city of Beirut turned into religious chants in which the flags of Palestine and Syria were present.
On motorbikes, some young men arrived, carrying the flags of Palestine and Syria, to celebrate the victory of the Moroccan national team in the World Cup, in front of the Christmas tree that rose in the square, against which the “religious” chants were chanting.
However, after clashes took place between them and young men from the area, which led to the injury of a number of people, which required the Lebanese army to separate them.
Dr. Milad Mikhael, a resident of the region, said on his Twitter account: “Congratulations for the historic victory of the Moroccan national team in the World Cup in Qatar, but in Lebanon, the victory turned into terrorizing a Christian region with an Islamic victory!”, Criticizing the religious chants that were present in the ceremony. Youth celebrations in Ashrafieh.
