The Muslim Brotherhood is out in Egypt and the media has been….interesting.

All over CNN there is misery as Wolf Blitzer continues to stress the “thousands” of Muslim Brotherhood supporters and emphasize the “legitimacy” of the Morsi government.

On MSNBC Richard Engel gave MSNBC views what is really the first idea that the Muslim Brotherhood might actually consist of radical Islamists. I’m sure the views were shocked SHOCKED.

Fox seems to be focusing on if there will be clashes between the two sides and if the Muslim Brotherhood will fight and what is happening.

I suggest prayers for the people in Egypt and hope their make wise choices and the questions become:

1. Will the Muslim Brotherhood Moderate? No.

2. Will they fight? That’s the big question. if they are smart no, if they lose (and they will against the Military) they become the weak horse and Islamists will be in crisis all over the Middle East but they might figure it is their best shot and maybe only shot to get Egypt back in the short term.

3. Will the Christians be protected? I wouldn’t bet on it.

4. Will there be a less sharia compliant constitution? I suspect slightly

5. Will there be full and free elections? I wouldn’t bet money on it

6. Will the avg Egyptian be better off? Slightly, being free of the Muslim Brotherhood is good but will the military share the wealth? That is the key question.

My prediction: We will end up with 17th Century France with the Military as Richelu. I suspect there will be an election and a “democratic” government but the Military will make sure nothing take place that will put them in a war with Israel that they will lose or risk their monetary control of the country.

As for the US. This is both a victory and a defeat for the US in this respect.

It is s defeat for the US because Obama and Mrs. Clinton backed the losing guy they are linked to the failed regime and the people don’t trust them.

It is a victory because the actual interest of the United States, an Egypt not controlled by Islamists or likely to go to war with Israel, has an excellent chance of happening.

The question becomes if that victory is consistent with the goals of Barack Obama

Update:  Two key updates, first from PJ media & Bridget Johnson

After the Egyptian military announced the end of Mohamed Morsi’s rule flanked by both Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros II and Grand Mufti Ahmed al-Tayeb, Islamists began predicting a purge of their kind in the new democratic Egypt.

The Muslim Brotherhood was not represented among the opposition leaders joining the leaders of Egypt’s two largest faiths and the powerful military figures.

“It is wonderful to see the Egyptian people taking back their stolen revolution in a peaceful way,” the Coptic pope said in a statement Tuesday.
That has to be reassuring for Christians but is like a red flag in front of a bull to the Muslim Brotherhood, expect Christians in countries where Islamists in control pay the price for that visual.
ZeroHedge has photos of anti-Obma banners but Glenn Reynolds notices something.
What’s interesting is that the banners are anti-Obama, not anti-America.
That’s not only a good sign but explains CNN ambivalence to these protesters.
Update 2:  Matthews on MSNBC has actually been practicing journalism tonight but the real news is the Obama administration statement of warning concerning US aid.  This is VERY foolish but not surprising considering how many friends the Muslim Brotherhood has in this administration.  As Pam Geller put it:
CAIR, ISNA, MSA, MSU all of them are on a jihad to save the Muslim Brotherhood. It is of course, sheer poetry that the vicious Muslim Brotherhood  was overthrown on the eve of Independence day. 80 years ago today, the Muslim Brotherhood was founded. Today, the Egyptians cut the MBs head off.
Hamas isn’t happy either likely because of this:
Security forces found explosives in the apartment, as well as military and police uniform. A security source told Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram that the four were members of Hamas.
Well I know what we’re talking about Saturday on DaTechguy on DaRadio

Yet another story that doesn’t inspire me out of Syria:

A plan to provide military training to the Syrian rebels fighting the Assad regime and support them with air and naval power is being drawn up by an international coalition

This is a bad idea

The head of Britain’s armed forces, General Sir David Richards, hosted a confidential meeting in London a few weeks ago attended by the military chiefs of France, Turkey, Jordan, Qatar and the UAE, and a three-star American general, in which the strategy was discussed at length.

this is a Very bad idea

Britain, France and the US have agreed that none of their countries would have “boots on the ground” to help the rebels. The training camps can be set up in Turkey. However, the use of air and maritime force would, in itself, be highly controversial and likely to lead to charges that, as in Libya, the West is carrying out regime change by force.

So we have a group of people now heavily influenced by Islamists, with Chemical weapons that we are teaching them to “secure” chemical stockpiles and now we are going to train them, arm them and provide air and navel power for them?

I’m sure folks think this is going to mean that the “New Syria” is going to be a much better place where Islamists will be weak, Sharia law will not be enforced and religious minorities will thrive.

And it goes without saying these fighters when the war is over certainly will not be a threat to the west or to our people on the ground when all is set and done. In fact I suspect it will be so safe we won’t even have to arm state department security there.

I imagine these same folks that brought you the “New Libya” have consulted with many experts who have assured them this it will work out. It unfortunate former Ambassador Chris Stevens in unavailable to give them a pointer or two.

We’ve seen this movie before, it doesn’t end well.

Update: Just a reminder, we only learned post election and post Benghazi that our administration was sending arms to the Libyans who eventually killed Stevens. If this goes where I think it will, I suppose we’ll hear the full story after the 2016 election when it can’t hurt the current Sec of State.

How did Steve MacDonald of the Grok put it?

“Only the News that’s fit to print, when it’s fit to print it.”

Did anyone besides me catch this bit from an article about the Libyan revolution:

Armed men in green armbands, along with uniformed security forces, checked those trying to enter the district, where graffiti that said “Gadhafi, you Jew,” “Down with the dog,” and “Tajoura is free” was still scrawled on walls. They turned away motorists who were then stopped at a second checkpoint by armed men in uniform. Those officers searched cars and checked IDs of drivers and passengers. Emphasis mine

Like the Egyptians before them the Libyans like all people deserve to be governed by a government of their own choice and not by a dictator. It is however a bad sign that “Jew” in an execration of choice.

Then again with a revolution in process, a dictator who may have stockpiles of mustard gas I suspect the last thing on Libyan minds is going after Jews.

I hope.
