Yahoo First off, Jibril is a Muslim, no one is claiming he isn't. Nor should it be shocking or damning that a Muslim was elected by a nation of Muslims to lead a nation that considers itself Muslim. That said they have bucked the trend of the Muslim Brotherhood winning elections. The victories of the MB aren't surprising either. They have been a political organization for decades with money, visible leaders and clearly stated policies. Additionally they have been in many Arab nations the face of opposition to dictatorship for years if not longer. Nor do I consider their victories the end of the world, as long as free and open elections continue. That said, I'll admit that I much prefer the moderate parties such as this one.
