Morsi's Egypt Is Another Replay of Algeria?

Reader comment on item: Better Dictators than Elected Islamists

Submitted by Rex Bouvier (United States), Dec 11, 2012 at 16:50

Hopefully, Egypt will now follow the path of Algeria to depose their Islamist leader. Unfortunately, civil wars are a very long and messy endeavor, where easily over a hundred-thousand people are brutely murdered. The problem is the peasant masses so easily eating up the propaganda of religious leaders like Morsi. This phenomenon is true in any country of the world, including the United States, where the working class masses (uneducated peasants) easily fall prey to popular propaganda until life becomes unbearable due to the socioeconomic inequities and repression, where there is an evident redistribution of wealth to the top ten percent, especially to the top 1%. These peasants will perhaps wake-up to revolt, when they realize that their taxes are increasing as their tax dollars are being redistributed into the pockets of the wealthy, politically connected sector of the population. Americans may be submissive and capitulate, but hopefully for Israel and the Jews, the Egyptian people are an innately intelligent people with much less tolerance for corruption and despotism.
