Muslim Brotherhood’s defeat strengthens neo-Ottomanism

Following the expiration of the ultimatum to democratically elected Mohommed Morsi put forward after the country had fallen into chaos, the Egyptian Army announced his ouster.

The country indeed underwent a military coup. It would be wrong to say the coup was only caused by the political situation in the country and religous hatred.

It should be noted that along with those factors, the country also faced serious economic problems. During the ruling party's stay in power, certain reforms were initiated to address them, although they yielded no tangible results. This means that the Muslim Brotherhood is not fully prepared for the political and economic rivalry.

Regardless of the political elite that will be represented in the government following the fall of Mohammed Morsi's government, the new government is unlikely to be able to easily solve economic problems.

Expectations that with the rise to power of the Freedom and Justice Party in the face of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the country will turn into an Islamic republic and start a war with Israel, which is a major headache for the Arab world, turned out to be false.

On the contrary, Israel's "interests" in the region were secured during the Islamic government, which lasted for a year.

Visual evidence of this are the loyalty of the ruling Party of Freedom and Justice to historic Camp David Accords, the control over Hamas in Gaza, the provision of security in the Sinai Peninsula and the absence of rapprochement with Iran.

Many political analysts believe that the military coup in Egypt will restore the image of the Muslim Brotherhood, and the organization will return to the political arena. However, this view is not very convincing, at least due to a great likelihood that the organization will be outlawed following the ouster, as observed previously.

Of course, along with the reforms undertaken by the Muslim Brotherhood, there were plans that were not implemented, as opposed to Turkey, which was an example for Morsi's power. The unrealized plans include unresolved staff problems and, as opposed to Turkey, the army's continued intervention in politics.

However, from religious and geo-strategic point of view, it is impossible to eliminate all factors that can contribute to a military coup in such a dissimilar country as Egypt within a year.

Apparently, the Muslim Brotherhood's government will not collapse without leaving a trace not only for the country but also for the political models based on the political ideology of the "Brothers."

While observing the processes taking place in the Arab and the entire Islamic world, one can see the two political structures - the Justice and Development Party in Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood organization in Egypt, which are based on a particular political ideology.

But the political fiasco of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt indicates that there is no alternative to the Neo-Ottomanism in the face of the Justice and Development Party in Turkey. But this does not mean that this political organization will be suitable for the Arab countries.

On the other hand, elections will be held in Turkey in 2014. Today, it is impossible to predict which political party will win.

If the Justice and Development Party wins the upcoming elections in Turkey, Neo-Ottomanism may be further strengthened in the Islamic world.
