The moderate Muslim Brotherhood...I don't think so.

It is not surprising that the terrorist organization Hamas has condemned the killing of Osama Bin Laden, but for many in the Obama administration [including president Obama himself] it may be a surprise that the Muslim Brotherhood  also condemned the killing.  Members of this administration have claimed the Muslim Brotherhood is a peaceful, moderate and even secular organization.

This from Jihad Watch
Egypt Muslim Brotherhood condemns Bin Laden death," from AP, May 2 (thanks to Elias): CAIRO – Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, ......... has condemned the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden by U.S. forces as an "assassination."
Also, this from The Atlantic: Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood Sticks With Bin Laden
But in its first public statement on the killing of bin Laden, Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood used the honorific term "sheikh" to refer to the al-Qaeda leader. It also accused Western governments of linking Islam and terrorism, and defended "resistance" against the U.S. presence in Iraq and Afghanistan as "legitimate.

Unlike president Obama and this administration, I am very worried if the Muslim Brotherhood gains a major foothold in Egypt, like it looks like they are poised to do.
