    Clearly everything the U.S. does is based on its perception of self interest. The U.S. would like to temper the hatred of the U.S. in the Islamicists world. Well, nothing the U.S. does, except becoming part of that world will help And its just fine, being thousands of miles away from the Islamcists extreme behaviour, violence, threat of violence, oppression, etc., is tthe bread and butter of the Islamicist world. As if there is anything anyone can do to bring the Brotherhoo nto reasonable and respectful behaviour. We can't forget that the Military attempted to work towards a compromise with the Brotherhood that would open the door to new elections. Yes, that was undemocratic but so to was Morsi's behaviour that went well, well, beyond his mandate. The world is changing and its one thing to have a president that is personally religious and another to have a president that brings his religious convictions to both domeestic and international policies. The behaviour of the Brotherhood has become more extreme than it was before the military took over but that is only a matter of degree. It won't change and if the U.S. thinks it will, if the U.S. ants to reach out to the Brotherhood, one wonders why the U.S. didn't do the same with Bin Laden?
