The detention of the three MB bloggers is part of a wider crackdown which has directly targeted the most moderate and pragmatic figures within the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. That ongoing policy escalated dramatically with the arrest of several members of the MB’s Guidance Council. The arrested figures including Abdel Monem Abou al-Fattouh, a leading moderate and pragmatic figure within the Egyptian MB, on what appear to be trumped up charges related to his alleged activities with t..

His book, described by the Egyptian newspaper al-Masry al-Youm last week in a seven part series, is far more important than the much-discussed "recantations" and "revisions" of former jihadist intellectuals such as Dr. Fadl (Sayid Imam) and the leaders of the Gama’a Islamiya. The internal revisions by ex-jihadists (which Qaradawi praises) may influence that tiny group of extremists, and demonstrate cracks in their intellectual foundations.

In the lively discussion which followed, I pushed the panelists on two points.

To me, the best indication that little had really changed was that half wanted to talk about al-Jazeera’s turn in a more radical Islamist direction and the other half wanted to talk about al-Jazeera’s turn in a more pro-American direction. At the same time! ..

It seems like every day there’s another story about Arab political bloggers being arrested, harrassed, or shut down. In Egypt, Abd al-Monem Mahmoud draws attention to the early December arrest of Ahmed Mohassan ("Eyes Still Open"), whose blog has among other things reported police torture, and the harassment and arrests of other Egyptian bloggers...

I’m just back to the US, and now I can say a bit more about where I was and what I was doing. Some readers might recall that last month I published an essay in Foreign Policy magazine, "How to Talk to America", cast as a memo to the Supreme Guide of the MB. ..

Today is World Press Freedom Day, which for students of the Arab media is a depressing day indeed...

PIPA has just released the results of another major public opinion survey in four Muslim countries (Egypt, Indonesia, Morocco, and Pakistan). The survey is unusually interesting, with some very well-designed questions. Overall..
