This chapter focuses on religious discourse, specifically the approach of the state's official religious establishment as represented by al-Azhar and by certain men of religion who are usually classified as “the religious opposition.” Those who take this approach think that the phenomenon is positive overall, that is, as far as its meaning and significance are concerned, although they think that the movement might need some guidance and counsel. The chapter treats this approach part of the phenomenon itself, since the two of them are based on the same intellectual constants and rely on the same strategies for producing their discourse.
