Ikhwanweb posted an article on Wednesday, April 6, 2011 with several unintended misinterpreted statements attributed to Ms. Dalia Mogahed, made during her April 5th interview on Al Mehwar channel’s “90 Minutes” program.

Since we were unable to contact her directly we relied on Arabic sources which may have resulted in a few inaccurate points. It is on this note that Ikhwanweb would like to clarify after studying the recording that Ms. Mogahed stated that most analysts expected the Muslim Brotherhood to acquire no more than a minority of the votes in Egypt’s upcoming elections, and for this reason the U.S. was willing to tolerate their lawful political participation.

The host then posed a hypothetical question about the likely U.S. response should the Muslim Brotherhood gain a majority.  Mogahed said the U.S. administration would clearly be nervous in this case and that she did not know what America's response would be.

The statements in question can be viewed here: 

Once Ikhwanweb was made aware of the inaccuracies in the original story, the story was removed.
