    but...but...but...the Muslim Brotherhood isn't all that popular! It can't be; we've been told that they aren't!

    The Muslim Brotherhood isn't even running a candidate for elections. While they have some influence, we need to relax and see what will happen.

    Well, he's right here:


    A crowd of people blocked Mohamed El Baradei from entering a polling station in Cairo on Saturday to cast a vote in Egypt's constitutional referendum, shoving him and smashing his car window with rocks as he left.

    "We don't want you, we don't want you," a crowd of youths chanted at ElBaradei,
    who has said he wants to run for president.

    This wave has little to do with actual democracy, or freedom.

    Ah, the laissez faire approach....Good for you. Such concern, such wrenching angst over the average people in the ME....pfft!

    CAIRO — In post-revolutionary Egypt, where hope and confusion collide in the daily struggle to build a new nation, religion has emerged as a powerful political force, following an uprising that was based on secular ideals. The Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group once banned by the state, is at the forefront, transformed into a tacit partner with the military government that many fear will thwart fundamental changes.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/25/wo...t.html?_r=1&bl
    "There is evidence the Brotherhood struck some kind of a deal with the military early on," said Elijah Zarwan, a senior analyst with the International Crisis Group. "It makes sense if you are the military — you want stability and people off the street. The Brotherhood is one address where you can go to get 100,000 people off the street."...

    snip

    As for not trusting "intellectuals, liberals and secularists," all of these groups have been battling for the Muslim Brotherhood in numerous Western countries - these are the very groups continually stumping for Islam and attacking critics as "Islamophobes," "racists" and "bigots." Yet, here is what a spokesman for a major global Muslim organization really thinks of its biggest pawns. Will these soon-to-be marginalized groups wake up to the fact that they've been had? In fact, as many of us have stated repeatedly, trashing these supportive groups is evidently one of the first things the MB and other Islamic supremacist organizations do when they come to power.

    It is unfortunate, but these possibly well-meaning "liberal" groups fit the classic definition of a "dhimwit," a term created by TROP based on the word "dhimmi," which popularly refers to a non-Muslim who is subservient to Islamic supremacy:

    A non-Muslim member of a free society that abets the stated cause of Islamic domination with remarkable gullibility or guile. A dhimwit is always quick to extend sympathy to the very enemy that would take away their own freedom, if given the opportunity.

    "Yay! Egypt is free"...to be taken over by the Muslim Brotherhood

    Relax, we already see what is happening, and part of it is you libs hanging Israel out to dry....Nice job.

    Doesn't really matter, no nation is going to start something that would end them as a nation. The same crap that has gone on will continue to go on, and would no matter what happens in these countries.

    Let? Do we control these things? Is the US ruler of the world?
