It's almost like all of these uprising are turning into two stage rockets.  First the general uprising and the better organized group, seemingly always the Islamofascists, gets control.  Then the masses figure out that they don't want to live in Iran or Taliban controlled Afghanistan c. 2000 and there is a second revolution.  Hopefully the second revolt throws the Islamofascists out as well in Tunisia, Egypt, and anywhere they try to take root.

I think it's more along the lines of the religious organization already being in place, as opposed to an islamofascist conspiracy.

Remember that Spanish fascists were not Italian fascists, were not German fascists--each was unique.  It is entirely possible for there to be group we call 'Islamofascists' because they share similar ideas and goals without them necessarily cooperating in a massive conspiracy, but as with the fascists of the 1930s, nothing prevents them from doing so at some level.  It's clear at least in the case of those in Iran, Syria, and Lebanon, there is cooperation.  As much as I think al-Assad needs to go in Syria, I worry about what will replace him for that reason.

But what he's saying is it's also possible simply because the highly religious segment of society *is already very well organized*, thus giving them a bit of an advantage in any sudden vote or whatnot. Orginization and cohesion can allow a group to dominate at the polls. It doesn't have to be a mult-national conspiracy.
