Martin Kramer, President-Designate of Shalom College in Jerusalem, raises some excellent points in his article "Worst-case scenario in Egypt". Kramer's argument is clear: (a) The Muslim Brotherhood is winning and the army will lose in the long-run, (b) The Muslim Brotherhood will need to blackmail (by going more radical) the West and Gulf countries for money to save Egypt from bankruptcy and stay in power, however (c) the U.S. will have to decide whether in these tight economic times, it is worth it to save Egypt and in the process help the Muslim Brotherhood succeed.
