The Muslim Brotherhood has reaffirmed its position as Egypt’s main opposition force, more than doubling its seats in parliament in the early stages of legislative elections in spite of independent reports of fraud by the ruling National Democratic party (NDP).

Hmm, interesting. So FM, is it particullarly interesting that the Muslim Bortherhood, an organization founded in 1904, and central to Egyptian politics of the last 50 years should be popular in Egypt. Is it really new?

Or are is the western press recasting old news as singifcant?
