I don’t see them losing out, in fact, they have the most to gain out of the opposition’s failures. You know my view on the opposition, lol! How can we talk of Brotherhood losing out when 45% of people in rural areas haven’t even heard of the NSF?
I don’t know.
That 45% is just one variable - there are many other major variables affecting and going to affect Brotherhood’s stance, legitimacy …
Either way, I don’t really find real thorough and comprehensive analysis nor discussion on current situation of Egypt :/
I use the expression ‘pedestrian’ because I can’t think of how to characterize all these IR/Egypt experts and commentators - and Egypt’s political leaders etc are dealing with their problems. -
they are all walking - they are all at the pace of pedestrian - I think :/
- Not thorough, full check of all major variables,
- and then ‘pace’ of the thinking and anticipation, prudence is ‘very slow = pedestrian’
It is less frenzy injected (not like hyperbole roller coaster of Israel-Palestine)
but I dunno. It always looks very … slow - and very - limited discussion. :/
- + And honestly I have no sense of who’s going to win out and how.
- + I do wonder about psychology of Brotherhood (as political psychology) *I should read more of their moderates, and those who left Brotherhood - after Tahrir, as all these political maneuvers by Brotherhood leadership developed, some moderates did leave Brotherhood with much criticisms. Left. Distancing. Raising critical voice etc.
- + But I also equal-amount wonder and baffled, and disgusted by NSF/Opposition side’s attitudes, psychology too.
