INTERVIEW WITH BARRY RUBIN: THE WEST’S BELIEF IN A ‘MODERATE’ MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IS EXTRAORDINARILY DANGEROUS…….

Rubin nails it. The Muslim Brotherhood has not ‘moderated’ it’s political agenda, in any shape or form, but has only shifted tactics in how it presents itself. The Ikwhan has learned from prior experience in its suppression by the regimes of the late Gamal Nasser and Hosni Mubarak, that it can only go so far in promoting fundamentalist Islam before the screws are turned. Those in the West who speak of the Muslim Brotherhood’s moderate wing, are only fooling themselves. KGS
