Until fundamental changes in attitude arose and began to spread in parts of Europe in the 1600's.

Before that, nearly everyone on Earth was religious, racist, bigoted, misogynist, and fundamentally superstitious. In only 4 centuries, more than half the world population has rejected the divine right of kings and accepted the wisdom and utility of secular democracy, along with a belief in fundamental human rights for all, including women and minorities.

Atheists went from almost nonexistent to a significant percentage of populations in many parts of the world. Studies show 7-10% for committed atheists, with perhaps 2-3 times that for people who claim a religious affiliation yet neither practice nor believe in its teachings.

Follow that curve forward into the future and it's plausible that rationality and reason, combined with compassion and a universal sense of justice will supplant our species history of superstitious nonsense during this century.

Which, in turn, are products of science and technology.

Any gain the Brotherhood makes in comparison to the Wahabbist's pushes the Arab states closer to Iran.

You really ought to try having some ideas of your own instead of plagiarizing entire paragraphs without bothering to use quotation marks and passing them off as your own. That's job 1 for you.

Two, you obviously are into the habit of reading poorly translated, poorly written crap off of the internet and regurgitating it all in forums. Neither you nor the author of the piece you so conveniently plagiarized know their Hamases from their Shiites and their Sunna from their Abdulwahabs.

Because of course your beloved friends over at Hamas will "coordinate" security withthe Israelis and "stand by" their "oppressed brothers" the Shiites over in Tehran, all while "jihading" from the comfort of their air-conditioned offices deep in the slums of Gaza and the five-star hotels of Istanbul and Doha. Because that's where the money is. Anything for a buck has always been the MO of your precious Muslim Brotherhood, and they've always sold out to the highest bidder. Just like the right-wing Israelis and the hawkish Republicans with military interests, Hamas has a vested interest in prolonging the conflict, because it's the conflict that's their very lifeline, their raison d'etre. Your Muslim Brotherhood and their satellite "movements" are nothing more than an international drug cartel, except the drug being the religious sentiment of the duped masses who are only now beginning to sober up to what they really are.

There's a good chance that we, all 110 billion of us created since the dawn of humanity, are just the first wave, the prototype, the test bed to weed out all the bugs and glitches before the real production begins. There are so many other planets ready to be populated, and will be as soon as the bug-free Version 1.0 starts rolling off the line. We're still at version 0.x.x.

Ooooo..... I like the idea that we are but the first iteration. But whoever wrote the code for us is an idiot.
