Islamism Meets Reality

The political Islamist parties that appeared after the Arab Spring do not have a good track record. In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood was totally out of its league trying to deal with the social problems. Fully 77.5% of the young Egyptians are out of work, and it is not too far from the mark to snipe at Morsi and his ilk by saying that their approach was "There will be work, God willing!  Maybe almost as much work as there is patronage for the Muslim Brotherhood supporters!"

Islamism is not Islam.
Islam endures.
