Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
" Western media rarely, if ever, mention the Muslim Brotherhood's assault on Egyptian identity, culture and way of life as a core cause of protests."

This is true. It's also the first time I've read it.

Personally, I think the deep realpolitik of the USA is that NO theocracy will be permitted, and that the Muslim Brotherhood is the epitome of theocracy, rebelled against by both the Egyptian secular populace and American secular democrats.

Samuel Huntington saw this years ago.

Align culture with our nature. Ot else!

NO theocracy will be permitted

Saudi Arabia? Afghanistan (when the theocrats were Reagan's "freedom fighters")? Israel did something similar with Sharon's Village Leagues, set up as a conterweight to the PLO, which eventually led to Hamas.
