The Muslim Brotherhood has said very clearly that they want Sharia Law and they want war with Israel. This is not a revolution by the people .. it's an Islamic revolution .. even though the people at this time dont' all understand that. The power behind the 'change' is The Muslim Brotherhood. They won't fully reveal themselves to the people there until it's too late. It's a freak'n mess.

I think it is very likely that even if the revolution is successful and democracy is instituted (which is by no means certain at this point) it will not change peoples' religion.
We saw in the Iranian uprising about a year ago that the people were tired of the oppressive government. Still the protesters shouted "Allah Akbar" (God is great) from the rooftops.
Religion and politics are two different issues. We in the west see the Muslim faith as oppressive but I don't think it is seen that way in the middle east.
