( The head of the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.K. said that a British government probe into its activities could trigger terrorist attacks.

“If this [ban] happened, this would make a lot of people in Muslim communities think that [peaceful] Muslim Brotherhood values… didn’t work and now they are designated a terrorist group, which would make the doors open for all options,” Ibrahim Mounir told the U.K.’s Sunday Times.

When asked if he was specifically referring to the use of violence, Mounir replied, “Any possibility.”

Last week, British Prime Minister David Cameron ordered an investigation into the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities in Great Britain after the revelation of evidence that the Egyptian-government-designated terror group had planned an attack that killed three British tourists in Egypt in February.
