    Re: Muslim Brotherhood Will Not Put Up a Presidential Candidate

    What really caught me off-guard this week was the reaction of Glenn Beck and his legions of mindless followers.

    Glenn Beck?

    Exactly what do you think they could do?
    Neither did the Nazis, or the Communists. How'd that turn out?

    They couldn't get past the military, so the only option for the MB would be to make a deal with the military, which is not likely going to happen, for several reasons mentioned above.

    Not even this time, islamists riding on dinosaurs will roam the streets and eat your babies.

    I am not sure what you are saying is correct. Maybe you want to use Lebabon as a better example.

    You point out an American extremist. And I return the favor by pointing out a Deutscher extremist.

    I still don't see a connection. Care to explain? As far as I know, Sarrazin said nothing about Egypt.
