In the wake of today’s announcement that the Muslim Brotherhood‘s Mohamed Morsi has won Egypt’s first competitive presidential election and has, given the opposition to his agenda by the Egyptian military, a limited grip on power, the question is this: given the autocratic tendencies of Muslim leaders in other Middle-Eastern countries, is it in the cards for Morsi and his team to play it straight and fair and operate as guys who really believe in a democratic form of government, or is there something in the Muslim psychology that inevitably submits to Islamic absolutism, Mullah-ism and all the rest of that primitive yahoo jazz?
