The Brotherhood’s Fatherland

Today on Tablet

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Mideast columnist Lee Smith provides a primer on Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and its charismatic, self-exiled chief celebrity, Sheikh Yussuf al-Qaradawi. It would be weird, Smith argues, to expect many Egyptians, if given the chance, not to vote for the best-organized political party with the deepest ideological roots. And it would be dangerous, Smith adds, to expect that party not to follow to the fundamentalist dictates that Qaradawi espouses on his popular Al Jazeera talk show.
