Decline of Political Islam

"While Egyptian political polls are subject to broad skepticism, one conducted late last month indicates how far Islamist politicians' public star has fallen: The Al Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies, a government-owned think tank, found that 45% of people who voted for the Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party in the parliamentary elections said they wouldn't do so again. The FJP holds nearly 50% of the seats in Parliament." (thanks Nabeel)
