Egypt's crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood supporters risks driving the Islamist movement back toward the violent extremism it renounced decades ago, analysts said Thursday as security forces spent a second day fighting protesters who torched government buildings, churches and police stations.
Middle East analyst Mirette F. Mabrouk added that the Brotherhood has a "healthy following," as shown in last year's presidential election in which Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi won 51.7 percent of the vote.
"It would be a mistake to think that they are going to disappear off the political landscape," said Ms. Mabrouk, a deputy director at the Atlantic Council's Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East. "If we shove them out onto the periphery, it is possible that we may be looking to a return of the violence that Egypt saw in the 1990s."
