Blood Brothers #65: Islamism, the Muslim Brotherhood, and political pragmatism with boundaries

In this insightful episode of the Blood Brothers Podcast, Dilly Hussain hosts journalist, political pundit and activist Sami Hamdi.

Topics of discussion include:

  • What is ‘political Islam’ and should Muslims use the term “Islamist”?
  • Has Islamism in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) become synonymous with the Muslim Brotherhood/Ikhwan?
  • What is the future of Islamic political parties and movements in the MENA, namely the MB?
  • Pitfalls of unrestricted political pragmatism – compromises and being fair/consistent in criticising/praising Islamist movements and figures.
  • The plausibility of any meaningful Muslim unification emerging in the existing world order.
