Sisi Is A Racist

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

Submitted by Mark D (United States), Jul 8, 2014 at 23:11

At the one-year mark, Sisi has done little to inspire confidence. But we who wish Egypt well have little choice but to look to him to grow in his job and tend to the fissures and weaknesses that have so swollen under the military dictatorship that began in 1952. Should Sisi fail, one shudders to contemplate the possibly Syrian-like civil war and economic collapse that could follow. (July 3, 2014)

Lots of luck! He'll need it. And the first steps should be not giving sweetheart status to his own ethnicity. He has put the greatest distance possible between Shiite and Sunnis. Hence the ISIS.

There are effectively no Shi'is in Egypt.
