As a big time kafir I would not call this satanic but i would call it "Machiavellian" and no more.

The Egyptian army ruled Egypt for more than 60 years and there is no reason for SCAF to let go but the army is no more than another extension of el-ikhwan and that is a fact. However, SCAF knows very well that it cannot solve the monumental problems of Egypt so I can see them allowing el-ikhwan to rule and i can assure you that in no time el-ikhwan will be defeated and SCAF will be back in power and hence el-ikhwan will take the blame for not solving Egypt's problems and it would just make me happy.

I'm also very sure that Egyptians have no liking for what would come with the imposition of the Islamic shari3a be it chopping of arms and stoning of people and killing of apostates and covering of women and asking the Copts to pay this hedious Gezya, the segregation of the sexes and the total disregrad and hate of Egypt's great history and monuments. Egyptians like fun and there is no fun in al-shari3a

It is too bad that Egypt is not the leader anymore in the Middle East, as it used to be, in the arts and music and singing, and writing and books and the information industry or the financial industury as it used to be there are no more Abd el-Haleem hafiz or Om Kalthoum or Adel Imam or Naguib el-Rihani and no more Naguib Mahfouz and the cinema as well as the TV industry is dying,boring with too much religious nonsense

Egypt and Egyptians have to work hard to regain what they have lost and I can only blame the army and religion for all of that

Egypt can only become democratic if it would have a leader that is a secularist who declares

1. That there is no place for religion in government or the army

2. Total separation of the mosque/church and the state

3. Equality of men and women

4. Equality of Sunni Muslims and the Copts and the Shi3a and the sufis and the athiests

5. Equal opportuinty laws as well as anti-hate laws

6. Independent judiciary that is based on the French law that has served Egypt very well

7. The constitution should make it very clear that there is no official state religion and that el-deen lel lah wa al-watan lel gamee3

8. The official language should be el-3amiyya the language of Adel Imam and Gamal abd al-Nasser and not this bogus modern classical and annoying Arabic

9. There should be no religious symbols in the government, education and the army

10. Address all issues that Egytians need including affordable and good health care, minimum wage laws, clean water and safe higways, improve education and change it from rote to critical education

Can this be done? I do believe it can but this would not happen until Egypt has a leader that is not afraid to tell the religious idiots that their way just does not work
