“The question for now is whether the transition to a new Egyptian government can take place peacefully or if it will result in a type of civil war and massive bloodshed. Either way, in the short term, the Brotherhood, the ideological child of Sayyid Qutb and Hassan Al-Banna, will be the biggest winner. After the dust settles and the Egyptian government is reformed, the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwan) will certainly ease their way into significant positions of power, not at all unlike Hezbollah in Lebanon. This could take as long as a few years, as it did with Hezbollah, but in all likelihood it will be a rather quick rise.” ؊oel Richardson, What’s next in the Middle East? January 31, 2011
