Muslim Brotherhood waits in the wings - Globes

Muslim Brotherhood waits in the wings - Globes: "The Egyptian revolution, which took so many in the West and in Israel in particular by surprise, was mainly motivated by the demand of the masses for economic justice. This transcended calls for freedom of expression, the right to organize politically, and relief from the rampant repression of the establishment including Mubarak, his family and cronies, the army and the ruling party.
Above and beyond the Tunisia effect, which certainly influenced the timing of the Egyptian revolution, western commentators have ignored Egypt's long tradition of protest."
