The apologists will see whatever they want to see, and spin it to look like “democracy” elsewhere, but there still remains the evidence to prove otherwise, no matter how loud the cheerleading. These fundamentalists are serious about what they believe, and will stop at nothing in achieving their goals. Don’t confuse any signs of pragmatism with ‘moderation’. KGS

Egyptian protesters rally amid rumors army and Brotherhood divvying up post-Mubarak spoils; US officials meet with Salafis.

Egypt’s first free parliament in six decades got to work on Monday, with Islamists holding by far the most seats and opponents comparing their grip on the chamber to that enjoyed by the now-defunct party of deposed president Hosni Mubarak.

With almost half the seats in the assembly, the Muslim Brotherhood is promising to cooperate with the generals who took power last February when Mubarak was overthrown, in their transition to civilian rule.

The generals will remain in charge until after a presidential election in June when they have promised to hand over power. Many Egyptians suspect the army may seek to retain influence behind the scenes after that.
