This chapter describes the evolution of competition between the secular Egyptian government and the Muslim Brotherhood. It discusses the ways in which repression has inspired the Muslim Brotherhood to provide social services the state has proven unable to provide. Initially welcoming the Brotherhood's retreat from violence and politics, the government has come to fear the organization's growing political power. The chapter stresses that the war between the Brotherhood and the Egyptian state evolved during the Mubarak era so that the two groups, who were once locked in violent conflict, have increasingly come to compete as visible providers of human security.
