I wasn’t joking about national socialism in the OP. The state of Nasser and even his MB rivals is definitely based on that concept.
And take note of how Egypt has been cozying up to Iran.

Egypt, once a granary for the world, can no longer feed her own people without massive US aid. This reflects the dismal effects of both its socialist system and Islam. There is at least some reason for optimism that the Muslim Brotherhood will not be able to fully control Egypt or use it to enhance their strength.
Notably, Morsi and the Brotherhood have recently gotten more push back than could have been expected when he came to power; and although Egypt can help Iran, there is little that Iran can do the help Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood.
