Freedom Is Not Having a Modesty Police In Egypt

I thought Egypt wanted Democracy after they force Mubarak out of office. The Egyptian people are moving from a dictatorship to a radical Islamic state. I have talked from this from time to time. Regime change doesn't work. The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. Now, the only organization strong enough to impose Sharia Law and radical Islam is the Muslim Brotherhood. They are working with the Egyptian military to impose their Islamic views to the Egyptian people. The virtue or modesty police is one example of forcing Sharia Law to the people of Egypt. This is not freedom. Next, it will be discriminating Christians that live in Egypt because Islam and Christianity doesn't mix. If the Muslim Brotherhood wins the fall elections, I would expect Egypt provoking Israel into an ugly war.

(FavStocks) Muslim Brotherhood officials must be confident in their chances in this fall’s Egyptian parliamentary elections. David Miller of Media Line picked up an Egyptian newspaper report citing a member of the Brotherhood’s governing board calling for a squad of virtue police created to act against “those who commit immoral acts.”

Issam Durbala’s vision aims to protect public virtue and modesty with “limited authorities,” Miller reports, which means something short of Saudi Arabia’s vice police. [Note: Miller identifies Durbala as a Brotherhood official, other sourcesplace him in the Gama'a Al-Islamiya, or Islamic Group].

Moderates and secularists in Egypt are alarmed by the growing influence of religious conservatives in Egypt. They’ll have to scramble to compete in the fall elections against the larger, better organized Brotherhood.
