Egypt’s New President (Rebloggable by Request)
anonymous asked: should we be worried that the new egyptian president is supported by the muslim brotherhood
Why? Because it has the word “Muslim” in their title?
Egypt’s President-elect, Mohamed Morsi, spent quite a bit of his life in California. He is a graduate of USC and CSU-Northridge. Half of his kids are U.S. citizens who were born in California. He’s, from what we are told, the democratically-elected President of Egypt. If we’re going to call for the democratic process, we must respect the democratic process.
The Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda are two very different entities with very different purposes. The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamist group, but not a violent one. They call for peaceful, democratic elections in all Islamic countries, which is not what al-Qaeda fights for.
