The Brotherhood's New Jahaliya

I have to take back everything good I ever said about the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

I never said they were very sharp, though.

In my thrill of seeing a new Egypt, I forgot that the Brotherhood was a backward-looking group, looking to reclaim splendors of the past...

They tend to overshoot Egypt's past splendors and end their backwards time travel in a new period of Jahaliya stupidity, where the institution of religion itself has become the New Idolatry.
