Iran Has Close Ties with the Muslim Brotherhood Despite Sectarian Differences… Details

Ahmed Lashine, Professor of Persian Studies at the Faculty of Arts, Ain Shams University, has revealed that Iran has close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood despite sectarian differences, noting that Tehran always claims to be in a holy war.

During his interview with journalist Mohamed El Baz on the program “The Witness” broadcast on Extra News, Lashine explained that the issue of the relationship between Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood, despite sectarian differences, is a topic that the Iranian state has long tried to avoid.

Lashine pointed out that the first to congratulate the Iranian revolution on its success were the Muslim Brotherhood, and vice versa. The relationship between the two parties has continued until today.

The Professor of Persian Studies also emphasized that all the demonstrations that took place in Jordan ostensibly supported the Palestinian cause, but on a deeper level, they were aimed at pressuring the Jordanian regime.

He affirmed during the interview that “the Palestinian cause is no longer part of the internal ideology of the Iranian regime; it has become more of a tool they invoke or ignore as needed,” indicating that they exploit the cause without being truly involved in it.

He also considered that Iran consistently uses specific terms related to the Palestinian cause for propaganda purposes and that the Gaza crisis benefits Iran without bringing any advantage to the people of Gaza or the Palestinian cause. He noted that it is in Iran’s full interest for the Arab-Israeli conflict to remain inflamed.

In the same context, Lashine mentioned that “the Muslim Brotherhood has strengthened its relations with Sudan, especially after the recent crisis.”

The links between clerics in Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood date back to before the establishment of what is known as the “Islamic Republic” in 1979, where their ideological concepts and references converge.

The relationship began with the visit of Ruhollah Mostafavi Musavi Khomeini to Egypt in 1938, where he met Hassan el-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, as confirmed by writer and researcher Tharwat Al-Kharbawi in his book “The Imams of Evil.”
