Sisi still finding himself.

Reader comment on item: What Egypt's President Sisi Really Thinks

Submitted by Charlotte (United States), Sep 17, 2014 at 19:43

Since Mubarak stole something like 40B from the people, I think President A. Sisi should get 39B back for the people. He should not let him get away with robbing the people. He will be able to fee his people for years and shift the economy too, or maybe do trade with others they do have things to trade....I personally think their Jasmine oil is the finest anywhere.....LOL Is he the peoples president or just another egotist

As far as running Egypt as a Muslim country, there are ISLAMISTS who are extremists and there are Muslims who just want to practice without the government telling them they must do things a certain way or else. Their women used to dress, now they are wearing Muslim cover up head to toe, I am not sure it is free will. Does he like a democracy or not?

Egypt was the first real civilized country in the world, and they went 360o (degrees) to the other end, no longer more civilized then their brothers whom I call sand people. If he is a modern Muslim Arab he needs to build up their resources and they do have them.

Sadly I think from what we see in the world at large about the Arabs if there is no dictator they don't know how to be civil. Sadly I feel some dictatorship is essential in Arab countries. But he will have to balance this really well and be about Egypt not about his bank account, or the oppression of the people. Tough Job after Mubarak
