"Nor, charge critics, does the Brotherhood have a political programme beyond its simplistic slogan that "Islam is the solution". "They talk about the hijab, and not wanting women judges, but not about the economy or privatisation and issues that matter to millions of ordinary people," said George Ishaq of the grassroots Kifaya movement, which came from nowhere in 2004 to campaign against another presidential term for Mr Mubarak."
And there is a similar problem with the Lebanese opposition, led by Hizbullah: they do not talk about the hijab or women judges, (or at least they have stopped talking about it), but they also do not talk about the economy or privatization and issues that matter to millions of ordinary people, beyond the resistance to Israel (which is endorsed by tens of millions in Lebanon and the world). Wake up. It is time to address these issues seriously. The weapons used by the zio-cons and neo-cons to keep the our people in bondage are as much military as economic. You cannot just fight them with arms and martyrs. We need a clear development program for Lebanon, one that unequivocally addresses the poor. A policy for agriculture and rural development. Your views on industry. On privatization, which you appear to be endorsing so whole heartedly. Where are they? All you have been able to do so far is to silently endorse the neo-liberal plans of this government.
