anonymous asked:  should we be worried that the new egyptian president is supported by the muslim brotherhood

Why?  Because it has the word “Muslim” in their title?

Egypt’s President-elect, Mohamed Morsi, spent quite a bit of his life in California.  He is a graduate of USC and CSU-Northridge.  Half of his kids are U.S. citizens who were born in California.  He’s, from what we are told, the democratically-elected President of Egypt.  If we’re going to call for the democratic process, we must respect the democratic process.

The Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda are two very different entities with very different purposes.  The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamist group, but not a violent one.  They call for peaceful, democratic elections in all Islamic countries, which is not what al-Qaeda fights for.
