2 cents: Below is an article on today’s Fox News website that articulates what I figure will happen with the Muslim Brotherhood and the real purpose of the military’s actions before the election and since. If a real democracy is to take root and grow in that country, it will require the threat of military trumping the government and holding them in place. As commented earlier I figure that the actions going on behind the scenes right now with the MB is figuring how best to create cabinet and committees that will be engaged with the military and – ultimately – to infect them and weaken them most probably my creating a schism. It is night time right now (symbolically) in Egypt and the evil always ply their trade in the night.
Again – don’t forget – the CES wanted the MB to win the presidential election in Egypt.
After thousands of years as the land of the pharaohs and decades under dictators, Egypt could find its experiment with democracy brief, some analysts worry.
That concern follows the Muslim Brotherhood’s wild success at the polls in post-Mubarak Egypt, most recently with the election to the presidency of Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Mursi. He was sworn in over the weekend.
Kori Schake, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, feels Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise owes much to Egyptians’ dislike of those candidates aligned with Hosni Mubarak and the Egyptian military. But the result is that the second-largest recipient of U.S. foreign aid is now led by a party with past ties to terror group Hamas.
“With the Islamist parties, because they are revolutionary, that is — they seek to change the societies as they have been governed — the fear is that you will get one man, one vote, one time,” Schake said.
