Analyst compares leader's sermon to bin Laden's pre-9/11 warningPosted: October 12, 2010 1:00 am Eastern

Five years before the 9/11 attacks, al-Qaida declared war on America, the West, Christians and Jews â€“ and virtually no one noticed.
Now, a longtime observer of Islam is warning that a "war declaration" of potentially much greater significance has been made.
The Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, Muhammad Badi, who was elected only months ago, has "endorsed anti-American Jihad and pretty much every element in the al-Qaida ideology book," writes Barry Rubin, author and director of the Global Research in International Affairs Center and editor of the Middle East Review of International Affairs Journal.
The Brotherhood â€“ the dominant Islamic organization in the West that has spawned most of the major Muslim terrorist groups, including al-Qaida, along with the biggest "mainstream" organizations â€“ is giving the signal that it is "ready to move from the era of propaganda and base-building to one of revolutionary action," says Rubin.
