But is this a defeat or victory for imperialism? That still remains to be seen… the Muslim Brotherhood while branding itself an Islamic political party, has by and large allied itself with imperialism wherever it has come to power – Tunisia, Libya, and the forces receiving arms against the government of Syria – are all puppets. The celebrations in Cairo may be very short lived, if the Muslim Brotherhood takes the same sordid path – and becomes an “islamic” puppet of empire. Some people may be all happy ’cause, after all, the Muslim Brotherhood’s leadership was severely tortured by the secularist allies of empire, and it’s leader Syed Qutb executed by the nationalist Nasser. But the Muslim Brotherhood of today is all about compromise, and back room dealings – it’s leadership filled with engineers and technocrats, not social-Islamic revolutionaries.
