Declaring the Egyptians right to determine their leader, John Kerry, Chairman of the US Senate foreign relations committee, said that the US is not afraid of the MB's growing power in Egypt .


The Brotherhood represents a wide variety of people from diverse backgrounds and the majority of Egyptians are looking forward to stability and a renewal of tolerance.

 
As Egyptians revel in their new-found freedom and opportunity to choose their leaders, the Muslim Brotherhood is growing in popularity as its policy of transparency renews people's confidence in their work.

 
At the same time, the US has renewed its support for the Egyptian people, stating their determination to
help the people,  not the authoritarian regimes. This is quite a turn-around from their historic support of tyrant rulers in the region.

The US says that it supported ex-president Hosni Mubarak because he was a major player in the region's stability.

The US is adopting the image of 'peace maker' in its attempts to justify its support of authoritarian rulers in the past, saying that they did so to reduce tension.

In modern-day terms, US foreign policy is based upon preserving the country's interests, and ensuring access to oil.

On American Interests and the MB John Muhammad
If the MB provides an avenue to whatever resource it is the US desires at any given time, the MB will be in favor and will be courted by our politicians. If the MB is seen as an obstacle, of course it will be branded as 'extremist' and 'in bed with terrorists' as are any of American's enemies. As an American Muslim, I find this policy abhorrent and praise the MB on its good works for the people- you keep doing what you need to do and let the US government find its own path. We Muslims already know where our path will take us. Jezakallah khair, MB.
