Husam Tammam and Patrick Haenni: Egypt: Islam in the insurrection

Recaps how different religious trends reacted to revolution in Egypt. H/T The Arabist who writes,
One important thing to remember is that neither the leadership of the secular parties, the Muslim Brotherhood, the army or the wider regime wants to see that culture of reverence for the older leaders to end. The paternalism of the Military Council, the support it generally has from the over-40/50 crowd (with exceptions such as Aboul Fotouh or ElBaradei of course) is just another evidence that generational divides are an important aspect of what's going on.
