…make violent revolution inevitable.” — JFK
I am completely undecided as to whether or not this truly is a democratic revolution, or a revolution on par with what created the Islamic Republic of Iran. Nonetheless — as I was discussing with a friend this afternoon — Egypt is truly the last hope for moderate Islam if the religion is ever to recapture the glory days of Ibn Khaldun, Averroes, and Ibn Rushd.
I truly hope this is a democratic revolution, and that if so, the revolution succeeds rather than is stifled (as it was in Iran). If this is nothing more than a mere coup by the Muslim Brotherhood, then I hope it is crushed mercilessly.
