Chapter 5 details the process by which the internal divisions within al-Gama‘a al-Islamiyya were resolved. Coinciding with the Muslim Brotherhood’s reconstitution, or perhaps because of it, the dividing ideological lines within the student movement were more clearly drawn, with the majority of its leadership, especially at the senior level, deciding to join the Muslim Brotherhood as members. For its part, the Muslim Brotherhood proved extremely adept at recruiting the next generation of Islamic activists to join its ranks. The organizational structure was rebuilt following closer coordination between youth and veteran activists; by the end of the decade, the Muslim Brotherhood had once again become a thorn in the side of the ruling regime.
