"God's will has arrived so don't rush it"

This was the Friday slogan from yesterday in Syria.  This slogan captures the essence of the Ikhwan-dominated Syrian opposition in exile.   Just like Libya, Islamists put secular intellectuals without any popular base and use them for their own ends.  A revolution that speaks of "God's will" on earth is no revolution and should in fact be opposed by all means because it will rule also with "God's will" and repress everybody else in the name of God's will, and will execute dissidents in the name of God's will.  I am eager to see one supporter of the Syrian National Council here in the US make an argument to my face that this is a secular opposition.  Certainly not the Ikhwan-run shops in exile.  Certainly.
