"It’s a volatile situation in Egypt, but the Muslim Brotherhood must be part of any successful, stable future." Am I reading this right? And what are you saying; if this does not happen, the Muslim Brotherhood will promote violence and terrorism? Simply, we learned in this country, over 200 years ago, that you cannot mix religion and government. It is one of the main reasons why I don't vote for some politicians who base most/all their decisions on their religion. I don't force my beliefs on them and I will not let them make decisions about my life based on theirs and these people in the USA that do this, are peaceful people. Now, add the militant factor to this and Egypt should elect a leader who is interested in promoting the economic well being of their country without religious views.

The Brotherhood blew it. Their guy may have been "democratically" elected, but it didn't take Morsi & cronies long at all before he set himself above the law and began issuing edicts and declarations that were anything but democratic. The Egyptians saw the true color and intentions of the Brotherhood, and acted quickly and decisively. Had Morsi and the Brotherhood opted for gradual change, they may have been able to achieve at least some of their aims. But they will never be elected to positions of national power in Egypt again.

Mao and Stalin rationalized their existence. I guess that's the same vein for the Brotherhood. In the long run, we'll probably do better without them.
