– A Pseudo-Ottoman Blog: Occasional Musings –

‘Most of the votes have been counted. And it looks like Egyptians will choose in June between a man jailed by Hosni Mubarak, and one of the former leader’s prime ministers. The Muslim Brotherhood is pitching its candidate, Mohammed Morsi, as a guardian of the revolution. And its urging other candidates to join a reformist coalition. Morsi was jailed for seven months under former president Mubarak. Now, unofficial results give him a quarter of the vote. But Ahmed Shafiq – who was prime minister while Morsi was in prison – also has a lot of support. As a former air force commander, he is a military man who has emphasised his political experience. Al Jazeera‘s Sherine Tadros has more now on Friday’s events’.

 During the so-called revolution in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood took care not to be seen as part of the Tahrir Square movement, yet now the organization is presenting itself as “guardian of the revolution”. Curiouser and curiouser . . .
