(p.210) 6 The Muslim Brothers Consider Fascism and Nazism
Confronting Fascism in Egypt
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the Muslim Brothers' attitudes regarding fascism, democracy, and the ideological confrontation of the 1930s between liberal versus authoritarian principles of political order. It suggests that, contrary to ex post facto interpretations of the movement's ideology, the Muslim Brothers' complex view of Italian Fascism and German Nazism in the 1930s and its perspective on the alternative political systems found in the Western liberal democracies were not totally at odds with the consensus regarding democracy and dictatorship found in mainstream Egyptian public discourse as demonstrated in the preceding chapters.

Keywords:   fascism, democracy, authoritarian principles, political order, public discourse, dictatorship
