Dr. Youssef: More to Egypt Crisis than Meets Eye

Ad Feedback

Michael Youssef, an Egyptian-born Christian and founder and president of the television ministry Leading The Way, says there's more to the current turmoil in Egypt than meets the eye.

"Before you judge the motives of the protesters, you must know who is really behind those young people on the streets," Youssef said.

The Egyptian native suggested that the terrorist group The Muslim Brotherhood is using well-meaning protestors who sincerely desire democracy to gain a foothold in the government.

"The Muslim Brotherhood has been thirsting for power in Egypt for many, many years," Youssef explained. "Should they succeed, it will not only spell disaster to the West and to Israel, but also to the Christians and the secular-minded Muslims."

He offered more perspective on the ramifications of the Egyptian protests on CBN News Channel Morning News, Feb. 1. Click play to watch.
