But the most important thing is that the mumbling, kvetching, and pseudo-Islamophobic ramblings we read in mainstream news sources about “Islamists” is propaganda.
The US and Israel are quite happy to work with “Islamists” when it suits their agenda and when those “Islamists” are tame and can be coaxed into effective normalization with Israel and especially when they support neoliberal economic policies.
Preferably both. “Islamism” tells us nothing in particular about the orientation of political factions, and bashing Israeli or American Orientalism vis-à-vis “Islamist” political parties and movements when both states constantly make deals with “Islamists” provides them cover while obscuring the underlying political economy and strategy of their alliance system in the region.
The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood is bought and paid for, cynically deploying support for Palestine as they did several weeks ago only to in turn provide cover for their own fundamentally bourgeois agenda.
