"After three decades of persecution that virtually eradicated its presence, the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood has resurrected itself to become the dominant group in the fragmented opposition movement pursuing a 14-month uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.
Exiled Brotherhood members and their supporters hold the biggest number of seats in the Syrian National Council, the main opposition umbrella group. They control its relief committee, which distributes aid and money to Syrians participating in the revolt. The Brotherhood is also moving on its own to send funding and weapons to the rebels, who continued to skirmish Saturday with Syrian troops despite a month-old U.N.-brokered cease-fire." Washpost
I told you so, repeatedly. The revolt in syria is a Sunni Islamist revolt intended to bring to power a sharia law dominated government run by "friends" of the Wahhabi government of Saudi Arabia. Kunuri wrote that the Islam of the Saudis has little in common with the Hanafi dominated Islam of Turkey. Yes! Yes! Yes!.
The "bleeding heart" liberals of the West and the half baked liberals of the Middle East are creating monstrous governments that will devour whatever movement towards the 21st Century and better, more prosperous lives the peoples of the region had achieved. pl
