Dr. Pipes

It seems that Morsi in his efforts to improve the stagnant Egyptian economy and realizing that some of his enemies can really help he is allowing Naguib Sawiris to return to Egypt from his self exile and there is a promise that there will be no annoying frivolous law suits that Islamists are famous for

Sawiris is very happy to be back to Egypt but it seems that Morsi collected one billion dollars in back taxes from another member of the Sawiris family!

I guess if Morsi cannot get money from the IMF then he will have to beg or get it from deep pockets through the power of the Egyptian tax authority
