The Muslim Brotherhood is dedicated to the spread of a fundamental form of Islam throughout the world — but is it also supporting terrorists? Award-winning Newsweek journalists Mark Hosenball and Michael Isikoff investigate a movement that preaches peaceful co-existence while offering inspiration for jihadi groups. They meet a top Brotherhood leader condemned by President Bush for financing Al Qaeda and Hamas, a sympathizer living freely in Germany though believed to have played a significant role in 9/11 and a Brotherhood supporter who met with U.S. presidents while plotting an assassination.
