In most of the Arab Spring countries the Muslim Brotherhood are either in power or about to be. But who are they really?
Created in 1928 as part of a return to religious fundamentalism and armed struggle against Western occupation, the Brotherhood has developed an ideology that some might describe as obscurantist.
Long hounded by secular Arab nationalist dictators, the Muslim Brotherhood came to power in Egypt, Tunisia, and partially in Morocco. But are the Muslim Brotherhood of today digging the grave of the democratic revolution which gave them power in the first place? Or are they, as they claim, really in favour of a “moderate Islam”, in tune with modernity and compatible with democracy?
