History Channel: Muslim Brotherhood

This video (in 5 parts) is a good introduction on the Muslim Brothers. It is interesting to contrast the grand vision of the movement who wants to implement an Islamic state and the tactic it follows. Watching this video will remind you that the objective of the MB is the same. Only the means to achieve it are evolving in some countries. In Egypt, after several failed attempts to influence the regime through violence, the movement finally opted for more precautions.
But the shift is tactical, not strategic. The movement can resume violence if needs be, or follow the "peaceful" opposition to the regime if it considers this tactic more appropriate.
