Gee, I guess the last three years I've spent working in Libya, Lebanon and Including frequent visits to Egypt, Saudi and Jordan have me all
confused???? I guess I'm more ignorant than I thought!
MB are not a viable movement within Libya, where the main influences run along tribal and territorial lines more so than religious ones. MB were
completely outplayed in the elections by more centralist parties who are organised more along tribal grounds than religious or political ones.
AQ brigades, who are at the forefront of the Syrian rebel army brigades, (because they appear have more structure and are not hampered by tribal
affiliations, and thus more capable of large scale attacks than small skirmishes, thus have a greater strategic value in the civil war than tactical,
are not likely to align with MB which was the basic assessment you made about the future of Syria after the removal of Assads alawite tribe.)
The MB lead government in Egypt is currently on the verge of civil war in the Sinai against jihadists sponsored by AQ aligned clerics. So no, I
don't see them as being brothers in arms within the Syrian rebel movements about which few facts are available.
Forgive my spelling, I usually write this words in Arabic.
But hey maybe I'm ignorant. Maybe the aliens will take control...
