From Legitimacy to Illegitimacy: The Brotherhood and the State; Will the experience of 1954 be Repeated?

This analysis raises the question of whether the scenario of confrontation between the Brotherhood and the state will be repeated? The analysis monitors the movement’s tendency to engage in violence and to look abroad for help since Jan. 25th. It also monitors the trends of youth groups, which broke off from the movement, its leaders and members. The analysis stresses that if the movement continues this state of denial, it will likely find itself in a position similar to the position it got itself into in 1954. The analysis concludes it is likely that the government will leave the decision to ban the movement to the judiciary.
