Egypt: Is the New Muslim Brotherhood Logo Aggressive?

The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has a new logo. Netizens share their thoughts – as well as tips – to the group whose former member is Egypt's new president Mohammed Morsi.

Ramy Yaacoub tweets the discovery:


@RamyYaacoub
: The new, modernized Muslim Brotherhood (#MB) logo, you can find it on their newly refurbished official facebook page

He shares this picture (below right).

Con O'donnell takes a stab:


@kanaafa
: so progressive! A Quran above a cross, in a circle.

And Nevine Henien adds:

@BeeboHenien: Oh, what a pretty shade of green! Not at all threatening. I'm completely reassured & confident in their capabilities now. #MB

Reem Abdellatif complains:

@Reem_Abdellatif: The swords hv always been disturbing. Why do #MB use a symbol of aggression? And does this fit w/ ‘Freedom & Justice?’

Meanwhile, Mostafa Hussein has an alternative logo design for the Brotherhood:

@moftasa: I proposed this redesign for the MB logo but they didn't like it.
