Western liberals are also enamored with the Ikhwan

Nu`man sent me this: "The Muslim Brotherhood has long been portrayed as an extremist throwback. It is in reality an authentic mass movement, with broad social support and conservative and more progressive trends within it. Its leaders are mostly middle-class professionals, but its activists are often treated with snobbish disdain by liberal elites – as evidenced by contemptuous reactions on the web to the appearance of Morsi's wife, Naglaa Ali."
Note that he doesn't mention Qatar's funding of the Ikhwan and that the Ikhwan is part of the counter-revolution."
