The Strong Horse

Does anyone want to bet against the Muslim Brotherhood taking power in Egypt, should Mubarak be toppled? History shows that in times of revolution, the most committed and focused cause wins. The Bolsheviks swept aside Kerensky in 1917, as sixty-some years later in Iran, Khomeini pushed aside the liberals and Leftists who’d been his allies. Today, radical Islam is on the march in many countries. The radicals know what they want and they’re willing to fight for it.  They sense weakness on all sides. They’re emboldened. They believe that this is their time. Let’s be clear-eyed enough to see that.
