"The Muslim Brotherhood is no threat to democratic development in Egypt,” professor of law at Ohio State University John B. Quigley said, adding he believed the MB will participate, not dominate the political life.
 
He noted in an article posted by the US daily "Bellingham Herald" that the Brotherhood is a well organized movement in Egypt. Now that there is an opening for political activity in Egypt, the Brotherhood gives every indication that it will participate, and participate actively.
 
At the same time, the Brotherhood does not seem to be aiming at running Egypt’s government despite the fact that the Brotherhood was figured as the main political force in opposition to the government of former President Hosni Mubarak.
 
Significantly, the Brotherhood recently made a decision publicly announcing not to field a candidate for the presidency of Egypt. The Brotherhood has reiterated it is content to play a role, but not a leading role.
 
In the longer term, the political fortunes of the Brotherhood may depend on outside circumstances as much as on internal developments. Islam has become a rallying cry to protect countries in the region from being dominated by the West.
