The future of Egypt in the aftermath of last year’s “Arab Spring” is being written by the dominant Islamist organization in that nation, the Muslim Brotherhood. Since the fall of the Mubarak government in February 2011, the Muslim Brotherhood has been steadily establishing itself as the center of power in the new Egypt. In the process, the organization is now preparing to break a crucial promise that its leadership made last year: The Muslim Brotherhood is now seeking to install one of its own as president of Egypt.
