New York Times proves Glenn right on “crazy” Muslim Brotherhood theory
Not too long ago, The New York Times sent Glenn a birthday present by running an article about the ties between the protestors in Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood, an extremist organization that most media outlets claimed was playing a minimal role in Egypt’s revolution. Well, we aren’t sure what the occasion is today It’s Freedom Day in Belarus apparently), but the New York Times has decided to give Glenn another whopper of a gift by proving him right once again.
Glenn read from the latest from The New York Times:
In post-revolutionary Egypt, where hope and confusion collide in the daily struggle to build a new nation, religion has emerged as a powerful political force, following an uprising that was based on secular ideals. The Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group once banned by the state, is at the forefront, transformed into a tacit partner with the military government that many fear will thwart fundamental changes.
It is also clear that the young, educated secular activists who initially propelled the nonideological revolution are no longer the driving political force — at least not at the moment.
