The Muslim Brotherhood Belly Dancing

The Muslim Brotherhood Belly Dancing

November 8, 2011 Avi Melamed writes an article The Arab Awakening: An Era of New Slogans 

“…The Arab world is in flux and the Muslim Brotherhood movement in Egypt, is now in unfamiliar territory – they are finally in the driver’s seat. Therefore, they will have to bridge the gaps between their ideology and the need for pragmatism…I think it is quite reasonable to assume that the policy of the Muslim Brotherhood will be characterized by a permanent inner-tension that stems from their need to bridge their rigid ideology and their need for pragmatism.  And it is likely that this tension will create turbulence that will inevitably impact the region.” 

September 22, 2012 an article published in L.A Times entitled Now in power, rifts emerge within Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and quoted in the Elaph Arab news portal reveals inner tensions within the Muslim Brotherhood movement in Egypt that stems from the conflict between the movement’s ideology on the one hand and real politics demands and interests on the other hand.
