The Tundra Tabloids believes that it’s very plausible for the next Egyptian regime to have a solid Muslim Brotherhood backing, in other words, ‘their guy’, while they remain in the background pulling strings. If they have indeed learned from the Turk’s AKP party, led by the likes of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Prime Minister of Turkey, then the Middle East has become that much more dangerous.
They only need to slowly Islamize the country in increments to achieve their goal of a fully Islamic state whose judicial system will be a fully Islamic one. The rise of fundamuslims to roles of state importance will only be a matter of time as the secularists are squeezed out. That’s what has occurred in Turkey, where for an instance, Turkish airlines has its jobs doled out to those with bona fide Muslim credentials, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that camels are being sacrificed by maintenance crews celebrating a job well done.
Just think of what the Leftist media will say after the Muslim Brotherhood does indeed take over… and nothing happens, at first. Life in Egypt continues, with a little change here, and another tweak there, a little sharia enforcement here and a few years later and further down the road, one change after another begins to happen, and what we warned about is de facto reality.

There are a number of similarities between Qaradawi and Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini. Both operated as charismatic Islamists fighting against secular, autocratic regimes. Khomeini made broadcasts in exile from Paris; today, Qaradawi hosts a popular talk show on Al Jazeera called “Sharia and Life.” Like Khomeini, Qaradawi is a virulent anti-Semite. He has lauded Hitler for putting Jews in their place and expressed hope he would die a martyr trying to kill Jews.
What makes the situation so dangerous, according to Smith, is the fact that the Egyptian party system offers no credible opposition leader as an alternative to President Hosni Mubarak. Mubarak’s National Democratic Party is likely to crumble when he leaves, making the Muslim Brotherhood the country’s best organized party.
