Very well said, Mr. Tovey - reality says otherwise ...

Reader comment on item: My Optimism about the New Arab Revolt
in response to reader comment: The Middle East Requires Optimism be Contrasted with Realism-The Practicality of Why Islam Cannot Relent is Still Obscured.

It has been observed that the Muslim Brotherhood eventually rules every nation that has at least a %20 following. Egypt has that, and the MB has been very active in this whole melee in the Middle East. Because the western press is easily hoodwinked, Liberally owned, anti-Israel, and pro-Arabic (it's the popular thing to do), Much has gone unreported that should be reported.

It would be highly delusional despite lack of "proof" to think the MB isn't up to their eyeballs behind the scenes stirring many pots.

I agree with Mr. Tovey that our eyes had better stay peeled. I remain a staunch cynic to the "all is well" faction that thinks this is merely a responsible outbreak against tyranny. Those agitating responsibly haven't a clue themselves what is going on behind their backs and within their own ranks.
