Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood & the Demonstrations: PBS Frontline

This PBS Frontline documentary suggests that Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood played a bigger role in the mass popular demonstrations against Hosni Mubarak than originally thought. It also captures the cleavage between the old and new guards of the Egyptian Ikhwan. The documentary, to a degree, uses the term "Islamic" as one of unease. Ending with a formulaic question about Israel, as if this issue is the most important, also mars an otherwise decent documentary.
