The Mosque: Center of Religion, Politics and Dominance

“Islamic-style authoritarianism is the dominant characteristic shared by both the military and the Muslim Brotherhood, theocrats and non-theocrats: one or the other must be dominant. They cannot share power. One side or the other must come out on top.
