Muslim Brotherhood gaining Power in Egypt
Islam Times – The New York Times has stated that it is well-known that the Muslim Brotherhood gains power as each day passes. They are becoming one of the main partners of power in Egypt’s military government.
Islam Times reports that Michael Slackman, a reporter for the New York Times, stated: “ In post-revolutionary Egypt, where hope and confusion collide in the daily struggle to build a new nation, religion has emerged as a powerful political force, following an uprising that was based on secular ideals. The Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group once banned by the state, is at the forefront, transformed into a tacit partner with the military government that many fear will thwart fundamental changes.”
The New York Times reporter continued: “As the best organized and most extensive opposition movement in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood was expected to have an edge in the contest for influence. But what surprises many is its link to a military that vilified it.”
