What has Changed in Egypt

Reader comment on item: Tantawi – The New Mubarak?

Submitted by p. schwartz (United States), Jul 17, 2011 at 16:54

It seems that precious litle has changed in Egypt. Although the brave people of Egypt took to the streets in vast demonstrations to demand freedom, and oust the undemocratic regime of Hosni Mubarak, the new holders of the keys to the kingdom, the SCAF, Supreme Countil of Armed Forces, has yet to demontrate its embrace of the democratic reforms and liberties that the common people demanded and died for. In addition, they are willing to allow the Musliim Brotherhood to take an active part in the new government, whenever it is formed, hopefully soon. But as I see it, Egypt will not emerge as a democratic state. There are few signs that that will happen under the SCAF. A terrible loss for Egypt, Israel and the world.
