i don't know, man, but i'm thinking there isn't much difference. it's become blase to smack oneself (yadi-n-neela style) when people say MB are all islam, islam good, MB good. i guess everyone's feeling, especially with these elections, that the MB can get the votes and possibly the presidency sometime soon. what if, what if, ya lawhi ya lahwi. but wait. it doesn't look like people will ever stop to reflect on the MB, their actual program, their slogans or how it all really relates to islam, and then be like "yeah screw em" anytime soon. i was on the phone with a friend (egyptian) calling from the US, he was freaking out about all this, naturally. and then he had this epiphany mid-conversation. he said the best thing that can happen to this country is for the MB to take over, to take everything, to have it all (khaleehom yeshrabooha, he said). imagine political aikido. he said they will stutter at the podium and that they'll mess things up for everyone and this will temper the opposition and inject authenticity into people's political convictions. i really like this idea but i'm not so good at thinking on this scale. what do you think?

also i'm thinking hey, a few years of MB rule would mean the birth of a fertile underground culture, too. for me, personally, that's worth the shit. all i'm thinking is authenticity authenticity. i think it's better to be pissed off and shattered than to be like stale stinky putty, which is how i feel now, politically at least. then again, that's me, I'm privileged we sa7eb mazag and i can buy myself a ticket out if i need to and i can't say that i've ever really suffered major injustice. so maybe i'm just naive.

You know if the MB take over, there will be no turning back no matter how bad things get and for sure they will get very bad. You know why? Because the MB already has a loophole! They will tell us forget about this world, no matter how miserable, how backward, how ignorant, and how dependent on others we get. they will tell us forget about this dunia, we have aL-Akhra. This dunia is fania and worhtless. it is the afterworld we will have FOR SURE! AND YOU KNOW WHAT? THE FLOCK WILL GO ON BELEIVING THESE LIES FOR EVER. This is a sad day for Egypt...

sad indeed, MM. but i think there's a difference between people accepting the country becoming another harsh saudi or iran and saying eshta rabbena 3ayez keda we leena el akhra, and them being like "wait a minute, ento bet-hayyeso, islam meen yaaba, ento bteshtaghaloona". i really don't want to believe what you're saying ya MM but it seems to make sense. might as well start planning the resistance min delwa2ti
