Muhammad Mahdi 'Akif, ..., 6 April 2007 [cached]
Muhammad Mahdi 'Akif, who--by serving as the general guide of the Egyptian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood and the International Organization of the Brotherhood--is formally the movement's supreme global leader, expressed unequivocal support for Hezbollah during the last war in Lebanon. When pressed on the issue of conversion to Shiism, he said that Hezbollah is successfully leading the resistance against Israel and the Brotherhood hence recognizes its leadership in that struggle. The arguments between Sunnis and Shi'a must be suspended until after the common Zionist enemy is defeated and the Arabs recover all their rights, he added, because that battle takes precedence over every other issue.

Following are excerpts from an interview with Muhammad Mahdi 'Akef, Head of the Muslim Brotherhood, which aired on Al-Alam TV on May 14, 2006.
Muhammad Mahdi 'Akef: The Western world - American and Europe - is not fighting Egypt but Islam.
Muslims believe that this prophecy is ... [cached]
Muslims believe that this prophecy is about the Twelfth Imam (Muhammad Mahdi) who will appear (Sunni belief) or reappear (Shia belief) at the End Time . They believe the Twelve Stars mean the Twelve Imams and the Moon being an Islamic symbol means Islam, and the Woman is the Syeda Aaliah (Fatima), the daughter of the Holy Prophet whose family the Twelve Imams belong.
Also the Holy Prophet said: How can an Ummah perish when I am at the beginning of it, Jesus at the end of it and Mahdi in the middle (M. M. Qaim: Jesus Through Shiite Narrations, 2005, page 236).
That is the time when the Imam (Mahdi) will appear.
Tamimi a world leader or simply an Arab leader is found in the books of Islamic eschatology to assist the Imam (Mahdi) while dealing with Sufyani. In fact he is predicted to be the Head of the Imam's armies.
Yamani from Yemen or of Yemeni origin is predicted to appear to create much "strife and turmoil" in the world (Zaidi: The Auguries of Advent, 1988, p61). Probably the same Yamani is predicted to be killed by the security forces while trying to deliver a speech beside the Kaaba at Mecca. It looks he will try to snatch the microphone out of the hands of the Imam of the Kaaba and in the struggle will give his life.
The name of the last Arabian Ruler (H M King Abdullah) to hand over power to the Imam (Mahdi) is mentioned in the books, too.
j. The Holy Covenant: Daniel the Prophet of God mentions a Holy Covenant in Chapter 11:28-32. (Imam) Ali said this covenant signed between Mahdi and the Antichrist for mutual coexistence will be violated by the Antichrist after a period equal to the pregnancy of a woman ie nine months. (Surprisingly that is the time commanders need to train a recruit to make him a good fighter!).
5. The Imam Muhammad Mahdi: "Mahdi is a great Muslim spiritual leader foretold by the Prophet himself as coming at the end of time and heralding the Second Coming of Christ" (V Oliveti: Terror's Source, 2002, p17). He will face the Antichrist. Imam is a title, in this case meaning a "doctor of laws"; Muhammad will be his first name; Mahdi is supposed to be his surname.
Mahd and Mahdi are two of 99 names of our Holy Prophet. Mahd is also Moses' cosmic name, meaning the cosmic carrier, the abode, the space, the gravity, the mover, the regulator, the synchroniser - powers given to Him by the Lord Almighty. Also it means the guide, the law-giver. Also it means to prepare, to straighten, to smoothen, and to pave the way. Moses charts the routes and moves the galaxies by the power of God Almighty. Mahdi is supposed to be from the descendants of the Holy Prophet, the progeny of Abraham.
Shia Islam believes that the Twelfth Imam (Muhammad Mahdi) born in 869 AC and then disappeared, will reappear on the world scene.
