Dr. Pipes

How did our leaders miss this one? For us that can read the sources in Arabic it was easy to realize that Morsi is a fool and a thug and a clueless idiot . This is what the Arabic language sources were saying with what they call daleel wa burhan or with evidence. And most Egyptians really are not interested in a theocracy but they might tell you that al-shari3a is the best thing that happened to mankind they still do not want to see an arm chopped or a person stoned. All they want is housing and jobs and food to eat and shelter. The majority of Egyptians love their country and its religous diveristy. But what were our leaders supporting? A bunch of religious fascists. What a shame. There was no doubt in my mind that the June 30 demonstrations will be huge because Morsi was left with no friends except for his ikhwan. Oh the salafists? They fled the sinking ship of Morsi the only thing I did not expect that his fall will be this fast

I just do not get it because if we can read these Arabic sources then how come our leaders did not reach the same conclusions which were rather very obvious

I gave up long time ago about listening or reading our so called free press because I discovered that Arabic language sources more so blogs are more to the point and they do reflect a great range of ideas and no one is afraid not to be politically correct .so an islamic terrorist is called an Islamic terrorist and jihad still means holy war and a jihadi is an Islamic holy warrior

I hope you have the answer about why did our leaders did not get this one?
