Suddenly Obama is going to sour on Muslim democracy if it produces results like these.

A poll conducted by the Egyptian Center for Public Opinion Research, or Baseera, published on Tuesday, showed that 69 percent of Egyptians reject the Muslim Brotherhood’s future engagement in Egyptian politics.

That figure compared with just six percent who said the Muslim Brotherhood should play a part in politics in the future.

According to the poll, 69 percent of Egyptians reject the continued involvement of the Muslim Brotherhood in politics.

Thirteen percent approved of their existence on certain conditions, such as keeping away from politics and concentrating on preaching only. Twelve percent said they were undecided.

Thomas Friedman hardest hit.
