Supporting Dissidents in Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood, Ayman Nour
On Democracy Arsenal, POMED’s Shadi Hamid answers NRO writer Stanley Kurtz in their recent exchange (links on Hamid’s post) over whether the U.S. should engage political Islam. Hamid challenges Kurtz to offer compelling reasons to not engage the Muslim Brotherhood, and other political dissidents like Ayman Nour, who he calls "as close to a pro-Western liberal as you’ll find in the Middle East."
