Summary

This chapter deals with the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood’s views on societal rights and freedoms. It starts with an analysis of whether and how Islamic law should be reformed according to global Islamist scholars who have influenced the Jordanian Brotherhood as well as the members of that organisation itself. It then moves on to analyse religious minority rights, women’s rights and civil liberties from the perspective of both global Islamist scholars that Jordanian Brothers cite and the latter themselves. Although this chapter shows the Brotherhood’s relative unity on the issues dealt with, this – conversely – nevertheless furthers our understanding of why the divisions within the organisation are so important with regard to the ‘inclusion-moderation’ thesis.
