84 years passed from the time Hassan al-Banna in the city of Ismailia founded Brotherhood Muslim movement and since that time it has become one of the largest Islamist movements.
Muslim Brotherhood’s credo has been “God is our objective; the Quran is our law, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations.”
And here it comes on June 18, 2012 Mohamed Morsi from Muslim Brotherhood won the competitive election of %52 over %48 from Shafiq.
If Egyptians would think they get rid of one dictatorship and they head to a “democratic” state they should look at the painful experience that Iranians had 33 years ago in the name of Islamic regime to get rid of a “dictatorship” which made their country ahead of all the Middle East countries at that period.
Green Movement happened in Iran after fraudulent presidential election on June 2009 and Iranians were so ready for the change of Islamic regime and 19 months later Arab Spring made its own way to Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen.
But this time, Egyptians with all of their resilience put their steps in the same path of Iran revolution.
Lots of Iranians watched Egyptian election in surprise and shock and when Muslim Brotherhood won the election it made Iranians very upset as they have gone through the same “democracy” for more than three decades.
