The revolution in Egypt that ousted Hosni Mubarak from power seems to be fragmenting at this time. The Muslim Brotherhood, represented by Mohamed Morsi, has been relegated to the back burner, as the military power machine keeps grinding with good reason, even as the Brotherhood keeps whining its grievance by trying to rekindle the revolution with demonstrations. If the Brotherhood finally gets its way, Egypt will no doubt become like Iran, and the revolution will prove to be a farce. The majority of the people have themselves contributed to this situation, having espoused the agenda of the Brotherhood whose objective was and continues to plunge the country into a similar chaos that the Iranians are presently experiencing under the mullahs.
It is obvious at this juncture, that the purpose of the revolution was not the establishment of a secular democracy, an ideology that Islamists abhor in the first place. Mubarak himself feared that the objectives of the Muslim Brotherhood would, if fulfilled, inject yet another problem in the Middle East, and drift away from the United States that was until recently considered to be Egypt’s prop and support.
Perhaps, when calm is restored sooner or later, which is not likely at this time, the army may, by controlling the Brotherhood, create an atmosphere that will be conducive to a true democracy that might be the envy of other Arab countries in the neighborhood.
