Via the AP:
CAIRO – Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, a conservative organization with links around the Islamic world, has condemned the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden by U.S. forces as an "assassination."Did you notice how the AP refers to the Muslim Brotherhood as a 'conservative organization?' That must be why conservatives were warning against allowing the group to take over control of Egypt while the liberal groups, media, Bill Ayers, etc. all screamed it was a freedom movement.
The Brotherhood, which seeks the establishment of a state run according to Islamic principles through peaceful means, is Egypt's most powerful and organized political movement.
And, of course, Hamas is not happy with this news either. Via Fox News:
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- The leader of the Palestinian militant Hamas government in Gaza has condemned the United States for killing Al Qaeda chief Usama bin Laden.Despite example after example that al-Qaeda, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, and practically every other Islamic group are all part of the same pot, western civilization continues to fail to connect the dots.
Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh says the operation is "the continuation of the American oppression and shedding of blood of Muslims and Arabs."

A CAIR spokesman in St. Louis spoke with a local news team about Bin Laden's death and publicly stated that he welcomed the news. Though Faizan Syed voiced a point of view different from that of the Brotherhood and Hamas, there is little doubt he did so for political expediency.
