Banning the Brotherhood will lead to a new wave of terrorism

CAIRO,Banning the Muslim Brotherhood movement and confiscating its properties could lead to a new wave of terrorism in the Middle East and especially in Egypt, according to the Director of the Carnegie Moscow Centre Dmitri Trenin.

“We must follow up the Muslim Brotherhood’s reaction on a long term,” Trenin said to the Russian news agency RIA Novosti on Tuesday. “The only way for the Brotherhood to restore their role before the world is using terrorism. In the past, in fact, banning the group pushed its members to get involved in terrorist activities.”

On Monday the Cairo court decided to ban the Islamist group, to seize its possessions and freeze its assets but yesterday it decided to postpone the dissolution until the litigation measures against its members are finalized.
