Dr. Pipes

I noticed that Egyptians are using a new term that I had no idea what it was and it is اخونة مصر or akhwanet masr and it really means to make Egypt run by the members of al-ikhwan or the real اخوانجية or ikhwangeyya or the members of al-ikhwan and this should not be surp;rising but what is surprising is that it is no competency or knowledge that matters anymore but being a member of al-ikhwan that matters

This means that those working for Egyptian TV and radio and al-Ahram newspaper, the airline, the highways and the legal system and those in charge of education must be اخوانجية. As for those technocrats that always did run Egypt they must be members the Muslim brotherhood be or اخوانجية or they are gone

And this is indeed a disaster for Egypt because now those that make decisions for the economy and building roads and pollution and job creation and creation of jobs and who are in charge of falling apart railroad systems and public transportation and the legal system and the press are not the most competent anymore but the they must be اخوانجية

This means that those that do not belong to al-ikhwan al-muslimeen even if they happen to be the best in their field have no chance in getting a job in the public sector and it also means that Copts and women have no chance of getting jobs in the public sector

What a disaster to Egypt and the people of Egypt and here is a video that explains what is this new new term is all about
