"Oddly, the New York Post described the journal as a “Saudi propaganda organ” —even though the Saudi government has banned the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. Presumably one cannot be both a Saudi propagandist and a Muslim Brotherhood operative at the same time." No, Mr. Kessler. You are wrong here. You can be a Saudi propagandist and a Muslim Brother at the same time. In fact, the Lebanese branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, known as Jama`ah Islamiyyah, remain a tool of the Saudi regime and advocate for its royal family. The Saudi regime was for decade a sponsor and funder of the Muslim Brotherhood. The conflict between the regime and the Muslim Brotherhood is quite recent.
