As we know, the BBC narrative is that the Arab Spring is a “good thing” and the Muslim Brotherhood are a kindly and progressive group….as a Biased BBC reader observes;
“Heard this this morning on ‘Today’…Muslim Brotherhood moderate, democratic, nothing to worry about…..Jim Naughtie not ask difficult questions nor dig too deep…. Egypt’s largest Islamist movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, announced this week that it is forming an alliance with one of the country’s oldest liberal groups, the Wafd Party, a union that could prove to be a powerful force in the September election. Dr Abdel-Moneim Aboul-Fotouh, a senior figure in the Brotherhood who has declared himself a presidential candidate, gives his view of what an Egyptian parliament could look like. “The democratic process will go on.”
‘Consensus between the parties and lead to balance…not just between MB and Wafd but between 12 parties’ the MB rep. told us….Naughtie does not mention who the other groups are.
Naughtie asks ‘Will extreme Islam prosper’…..answer…’Nothing shall happen…except progressive democracy and justice….moderate and tolerant.’ Naughtie…’Copts have nothing to fear then?’ ‘No, I myself defend them….Christians have same rights as Muslims.’
