Fratelli Musulmani e Congresso americano (2)

Dopo Nathan J. Brown anche Lorenzo Vidino è stato sentito dalla Commissione Parlamentare Permanente sull’Intelligence del Congresso americano.

Il suo report riguarda la “Fratellanza Musulmana in occidente” e dice sostanzialmente: engage not isolate ovvero “bisogna considerarli, se li isoliamo è peggio”.

Un estratto:

Today, thanks to a combination of ideological flexibility, unrelenting activism, large funding, and the poor organization of competing Islamic movements, the networks originally established by the Brotherhood pioneers have gained significant influence. Even if their membership has remained fairly small, the Western Brothers have shown an enormous ability to monopolize the Islamic discourse, putting their ideological stamp on any Islam-related issue, be it
strictly religious or more properly political. Several concepts and positions introduced by the Brothers have been absorbed, often almost unconsciously, by large segments of Western Muslim populations, irrespective of their religious and political views.

Moreover, in the United States and in most European countries, the Western Brothers have positioned themselves at the forefront of the competition to be the main interlocutors of local elites, be they in government, media, or academia. It is not uncommon to find exceptions to this situation and things have changed in various countries over the last few years, but overall, it is apparent that no other Islamic movement has the visibility, political influence, and access to Western elites that the Western Brothers have obtained over the last 20 years. In light of these facts, it is fair to portray the competition for the representation of Western Muslims as the relative victory of a well-organized minority over other less organized minorities for the voice of a silent majority.

Insomma, un fatto importante che vale la pena notare è che spesso i Fratelli Musulmani hanno acquisito rilevanza in occidente per il fatto di essere organizzati, perché ciò ha fatto sì che essi “parlassero per tutti” in contesti in cui differenti istituzioni cercavano referenti.
