Muslim brotherhood is very old organization in Egypt.
Year 1920 -   Muslim Brotherhood was banned in Egypt
The Islamic Resistance Movement, or Hamas, founded in 1987 in Gaza, is a wing of the Brotherhood as well, formed out of Brotherhood-affiliated charities and social institutions that had gained a strong foothold among the local population
The dream of Muslim Brotherhood is establish Islam and spread Islam
In short Sharia law and Sharia law and very strict sharia law.

Morsi party said that women are "unsuitable" for the position of president.
Islamist preacher and Morsi supporter Ragheb El Sergany proclaims that imposing Islam's Shariah law on all Egyptians "has been our project for 84 years. ... Islam is the solution to all our problems."

Morsi also demands freedom for Omar Abdel Rahman, "The Blind Sheikh" imprisoned in the United States for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. That demand is intended to appeal to members of Gama'a Al Islamiya, a terrorist group once led by Rahman which now entered in Egyptian politics.

Brotherhood was technically barred from running candidates for office under President Hosni Mubarak

After Egypt revolution in 2011, Muslim brotherhood founded a political party named it Freedom and Justice Party (FJP)

Khairat El-Shater was disqualified from the 2012 presidential election, Morsi, who was initially nominated as a backup candidate, emerged as the new Muslim Brotherhood candidate

June 24, 2012, Egypt's election commission announced that Morsi has won Egypt's presidential runoff.

Morsi won by a narrow margin over Ahmed Shafiq, the last prime minister under deposed leader Hosni Mubarak.

The commission said Morsi took 51.7 percent of the vote versus 48.3 for Shafiq.

Thus slowly Egypt will start its journey towards becoming a complete Islamic nation.

Currently in Egypt Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) holds the power now there will be conflict between Army and Muslim Brotherhood regarding power.
