NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS: A THREAT TO INTERNATIONAL LAW
International Law consists of a set of rules and principles of general application dealing with the conduct of States and of international organizations in their international relations with one another. International law has two main subjects, first the state and second, the international organizations which are categorized into governmental and non-governmental organizations.Thestateis main subject of international law, without which international law as a law can never exist. Therefore endeavors to abolish states are considered a trial to abolish international law. Moreover, international rules are established to establish the rights and obligations of states and to ensure the peaceful context where these rules are applied. Hence, the existence of international law rests upon the existence of its main subjects, the states, and the prevalence and salience of peace and security supported by its rules and principles. Muslim brotherhood(MB), as a nongovernmental organization, embracing certain beliefs and principles concerning their ideas about the prospective desired Islamic state and the rules which would govern the world attempt to destroy international law and to prevail violence and anarchy instead of peace and discipline . Therefore, corrective steps need to be taken. This paper is divided into five parts. The first part sheds some light on a background about the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). The second part focuses on the main tenets of MB ideology. The third part deals with the major goal of MB, the establishment of the Islamic state. The fourth part identifies the essential means for achieving this goal. The last part concludes with the required corrective steps to bring the non-governmental organizations under greater control.
