I guess we’re supposed to already have forgotten MB strongman, Muhammad Badi’s declaration of war against the United States:
“Governments trying to stop Muslims from fighting the U.S. are disregarding Allah’s commandment to wage jihad for His sake with [their] money and [their] lives, so that Allah’s word will reign supreme” over all non-Muslims.”
The taqiyya that is oozing off from every word Abdel Moneim Abou el-Fotouh utters in the below article, underlines the point the Tundra Tabloids stated earlier: “if the Muslim Brotherhood is smart, they will continue to keep a low profile while pulling the political strings from behind the curtain.”
They not in any hurry to field an ‘official’ MB candidate, seeing that they’ve been setting up their own ‘independents’ in parliament for a long time already during the Mubarak era. Lets face it, the Muslim Brotherhood are a force to be reckoned with, and that Egyptian politics will be from now on, a chess match between the MB and the Neo-Kemalites in the military. KGS

Abdel Moneim Abou el-Fotouh | Egypt’s Brotherhood not enemy of West
Like Egyptians from all walks of life, we in the Muslim Brotherhood have taken part in the popular uprising to depose a repressive dictator. The overwhelming majority of Egyptians demanded the ouster of Hosni Mubarak and his regime.
We will seek to share in the debate sweeping the country and to be part of the resolution, which we hope will culminate in a democratic form of government. Egyptians want freedom from tyranny, a democratic process and an all-inclusive dialogue to determine our national goals and our future, free of foreign intervention.
We are mindful, however, as a nonviolent Islamic movement subjected to six decades of repression, that patent falsehoods, fear-mongering and propaganda have been concocted against us in Mubarak’s palaces the past 30 years and by some of his patrons in Washington.
Lest partisan interests in the United States succeed in aborting Egypt’s popular revolution, we are compelled to unequivocally deny any attempt to usurp the will of the people. Nor do we plan to surreptitiously dominate a post-Mubarak government. The Brotherhood has already decided not to field a candidate for president in any forthcoming elections.
