Huge social and economic problems in Egypt....I suspect it will go the way of Iran after the Shah was deposed.
We'll have another major problem on Israel's border. Not going to be good.

Why is it that when Israel has a conflict, we the USA have to bare the responsibility of fixing it as if Israel is a US territory. Let these people sort it out. Hell they create 99% of the problems they face anyway.

Just being a Jew does not 99% make.

Senior Muslim Brotherhood member elected Egyptian parliament speaker

http://www.haaretz.com/news/middle-e...eaker-1.408843

"A senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Saad al-Katatni, was elected as Egypt's parliament speaker on Monday, in the first session of the newly-elected assembly.

Al-Katatni, who received 399 votes out of 498 cast, is a member of the brotherhood's political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party, which won the largest number of seats - 47 percent - in recent elections................."

80% voted for him. Pretty close to the 72% MB/Salafi numbers with a few not so radical folks.

Look for the 20% to be set off to the side.

Remember when I said al Fotouh is going to get stepped on? He is cruising for a bruising.

He's part of that new, strange Islamist ex-Muslim Brotherhood 50% vs 70 vs 80% dynamic. It might take a little while longer, but he is going to make a pretty good stab at dividing the Brothers' support between old and new, and changing the national dialogue to include new fuzzy definitions of Islamist.

ETA: It's important to note that he used to be in the Brotherhood, and now they strongly dislike him.
