Egypt: An Islamist Movement In Crisis

Egypt: An Islamist Movement In Crisis

We dissect the complex crisis enveloping the world's most influential Islamist movement, and find out what options its leaders may pursue in coming days.

Egypt's Islamist movement controlled the country's levers of power just weeks ago, but the Muslim Brotherhood is facing a crisis in the wake of the military's ouster of President Mohamed Morsi. As the West and Egypt's neighbors look on, this historically nonviolent movement now finds itself under fire from both military leaders and the Egyptian populace itself. We dissect the complex crisis enveloping the world's most influential Islamist movement, and find out what options its leaders may pursue in coming days.
