I'd say he's discreditied himself and those who share his beliefs enough.

Reader comment on item: Should Egypt's Morsi Stay or Go?

1. Perhaps he has discredited himself and those who share his way of thinking enough by now. The historically unprecedented size of these protests is a rather amusing monument to his failure.

2. What's that saying about the strong horse? These massive protests followed by swift attainment of their goal, followed by international support, could bolster and legitimize those with more desirable ideals in the region. Would not such a decisive victory have the same effect re islamists as letting Egypt sink into worse failure. But without the concomitant suffering?

Wouldn't improvement of Egypt's fortunes AFTER the islamists replacement by secularists further bolster the more liberal political forces in the region? - Would it not show the world that the Muslim Brotherhood associated organizations aren't the only realistic option for the path to democracy?
