Dr. Pipes

Murat Yetkin is very correct it is secularism v. Islam. I would add that in places like Egypt where Islamists and their ideologies were rejected the option left is really secularism and I shall add and the past and in the case of Egypt their glorious Pharaonic past. Egyptians indeed rejected that Egypt is only part of the al- Umma al-Islamiyya for Masr Umm el-Dunya

What is most amazing and as was pointed out by the blogger Maged Attiya and in the case of Egypt and since forcing Morsi and the MB out of office there is a desire to relive the REAL Egyptian Pharaonic past symbols and all and here is an Egyptian investment company and their symbol is the very Egyptian Ankh (which by the way looks very much like a cross) and this would have been an impossible choice just a few years ago
