Egypt's military-backed government extended its crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood on Thursday, arresting the group's spokesman and sparking fears that harsh Egyptian jails could prove a recruiting ground for terrorist groups.
Egypt's military-backed government underlined the weakness of U.S. influence by ignoring Washington's calls for restraint and arresting the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood on Tuesday.
"If the assault on the Muslim Brotherhood ramps up, ... we will see a greater likelihood of alliances between al Qaeda and the radicalized fringes of the Brotherhood," Dalia Dassa Kaye, a political scientist at the Rand Corp. think tank, told The Washington Times.
