memo re: Islamist groups and public’s motive for politics

So - there are articulations that ‘Islamists now gaining votes - are talking pragmatic, but that maybe a temporary guise for the sake of economy, international relations and domestic public support - in mid-long term, these Islamists might go back to their original ideological/religious agendas.’

But meanwhile, I see less or least about ‘what actually people/public in the region wants (or why they participate in current, newly emerged kind of politics:what are their motives?) 

Then just posted Gallup poll on Egypt indicated Egypt’s popular demands are - plain and simple - very basic. Employment, economy, security, stability, development and education. 

whether people supported the party, Al-Nour party, sort of the conservative, or the Muslim Brotherhood, or liberals, their priorities for the next government were

A. Employment 

B. Economic Development

C. Stability and Security

D. Education

Then, another facet of this subject is: how leaders of these Islamist groups are thinking: Today there was a report re: Gaza’s Islamic Jihad’s top 

“Muhammad al-Hindi, another Jihad official based in Gaza, said at the time that closer cooperation would help give the uprisings across the Arab world a more “Islamic dimension.”

[” Jihad leader: Unity with Hamas is not political tactic”   http://www.maannews.net/eng/ViewDetails.aspx?ID=455286]


1) [if] people or public prioritizing employment and economic development first

2) then how Islamist group tops would proceed - [regionally/region as a whole, or more locally]

These 2 points - facets - how they would go - 

Have to be monitored.
