I’ve been happy that the Muslim Brotherhood has been kept in check by the Egyptian people. As I wrote last month:

While many in the U.S. have tried to paint most Muslims as extremists, and the “War on Terror” as being a black-and-white war of good guys versus bad browned-skinned people, the Egyptian revolution shows that the reality is very different.

As Democracy Now producer Sharif Kouddous tweets, moderate Muslims are drowning out members of the Muslim Brotherhood:

Muslim Brotherhood chanting Allah Akbar. Crowd stopped them chanting louder: Muslim, Christian, we’re all Egyptian.

Similarly, an editorial in the Guardian states:

Tell everyone: Egypt’s revolution is sweet and peaceful.

No one wants the Muslim Brotherhood to take over, no one wants violence – just elections and a new constitution

But America’s Director of National Intelligence – James Clapper – is apparently a lot less worried about the Muslim Brotherhood than I am.

Clapper told Congress today:

The term Muslim Brotherhood is an umbrella term for a variety of movements. In the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried al-Qaeda as a version of Islam.
