Reader comment on item: One Year After Morsi, How Goes Egypt?

Submitted by sam (Canada), Jul 4, 2014 at 12:57

Dr. Pipes touched precisely on present Egypt conditions. I do not wish to sound gloomy but I must add my part about the future of Egypt down the road.

El Sisi is soft with no solid military credentials. Mursi picked him as a military figure and as a go between the military and Mursi and his gang. So from a leadership point of view, he is not to be counted to lead Egypt at the darkest time in its history.

Economically, Arab producing nations are supporting Egypt for now but if no results are shown in the near future, flow of cash would cease. Worse of all, Egypt's morality has gone downhill and crime rate has trippled since the so called revolution took place. Egyptian culture mixed with Islam teachings lead the way for the down fall of a once an emerging nation into chaos and the rule of tribes and clans.
