The fall of the first Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt and the ban of the movement in Egypt in 2013 increased the pressure on the Brotherhood’s branch in Libya to fulfill the group’s dreams of power. Libya now remains a potential chance for the group to realize its political ambitions of control and power. The desperation of the group pushed it to take extreme measures that contradict, on many occasions, the group’s declared principles of peaceful and gradual bottom-up change. The group uses all possible means to gain complete political control over Libya, which contributes to prolonging the conflict in the country.
