Poll: No constituency for Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt
"This is not an Islamic uprising. The Muslim Brotherhood is "approved" by just 15%, and its leaders get barely 1% in a presidential straw vote.
Asked to pick national priorities, just 12% choose shariah over national power, democracy, or economic development. Asked to explain the uprising, economic conditions, corruption, and unemployment (30‐40% each) far outpace "regime not Islamic enough" (7%).
Surprisingly, asked two different ways about the peace treaty with Israel, more support it (37%) than oppose it (22%). Only 18% approve of either Hamas or Iran. And a mere 5% say the uprising occurred because the regime is "too pro-Israel."
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
William Kristal's words and consider, apdst.
If the only thing the MB does is run for office, you're right. If the MB ends up running the whole show, then there won't be democracy.But it would be a good start if no political parties are excluded from running for office, and that includes the Muslim Brotherhood.
