But the story centers on students with whom the MB never had any standing.
The truth of the matter is, the MB haven’t proven themselves to be adroit in their governing politics, as their Islamic fundamentalist brothers in the ruling AKP in Turkey. If they were smart, they would have adapted a fig leaf of willingness for democracy and free markets, all the while they were further Islamizing Egypt on a step by step basis.
Their full throated approach for having it all and wanting it now, shows their lack of foresight, but don’t fool yourselves, their numbers grossly outweighs the opposition’s, and will use every means available to heap blame for society’s woes upon them. Civil unrest leading to a civil war is not unlikely.
