In most of the Middle East there is no political freedom. You can't be a politician unless you work for the current government. So they take on the clothes/speach of a devout holy man and do their politics in Gods name. In western nations holy men are expected to refrain from politics, and so we see these men as radical clerics instead of politicians.
