Recent events in Egypt have been relatively peaceful, certainly compared to what now appears to be going on in Libya, but I’m afraid of what could happen next. Cameron has gone there today to meet members of the military and some opposition groups, but not the Muslim Brotherhood. Does Cameron’s endorsement, or lack thereof, really hold any sway? The Muslim Brotherhood is the closest thing Egypt has to a functioning opposition party and they’re poised to turn Egypt into another Iran. And now Yusuf al-Qaradawi is staking his claim to be the new Ayatollah Khomeini. I don’t much care for Gaddafi, but a fatwa?
