Al Queda doesn't like "the brotherhood". Al Zawahiri is on the record criticizing them as being against Islam, because they condemn violence against civilians, and participate in democracy. If they were to take power, which again is a big stretch, that's Egypt's business.edit on 3-2-2011 by 27jd because: (no reason given)

The muslim brotherhood has little influence over the uprising in Egypt. Also, the muslim brotherhood condemns violence against civilians (including US, Israeli, etc.), and they have stated that all the people in Egypt, regardless of their religion, stand shoulder to shoulder against their dictator. They spoke of unity, and have stated they have no ties whatsoever to terrorist groups. I'm no fan of any organized religion, but from what I've seen from them, they seem to be somewhat reasonable and non-violent. Don't be so quick to believe Hannity or Beck, they're strictly entertainers.

Glenn Beck is ignorant of Jihad.
To him and many others all of this is the machinations of the communist, anarchists, socialists, and other contemporary movements. The Coming Insurrection!
Glenn, like so many others, has swallowed the prime deception of Mohammed: that God and Allah are the same.
Islam is a deception. It has visited untold death and suffering upon the nations it has consumed.
It is consuming Egypt right now, on live television and, yet, amazingly, the Jihad is denied.
Egypt is NOT historically a muslim nation.

You paint such a pretty little picture. So much love & understanding. I feel you man, I really do. But unfortunatly there is a reality to this world
I would like to take this thread on to another direction and ask what is next. But first I want to call out those that believe this is just all going to end peacefully & has no major bearing in the Islamic world.

"Jihad" or "Holy War" or whatever else you might call it, I guess its time now for US and Israel to mind their own business and stop meddling in the affairs of other countries. If the Egyptians think that its time for their leader to say goodbye well then its their decision and not for US or for Israel or any other country for that matter to decide.

The base of this revolution is grassroots and by the young people of egypt. Egypt is very westernized and most speak better english than I do. The revolution in Iran and this Revolution are totally different. That revolution had Kohmeni and this one has no leader.
this is all just Glenn Beck/ O'reilly fear mongering.
