Is el Sisi a Reformer

Reader comment on item: Is Sisi Islam's Long-Awaited Reformer?

Please do not take anything coming out of the Middle East seriously. I personally take their endless promises with a grain of salt. I read hundreds of speeches and more speeches, just talk for the local consumption and western media. Take Turkey as an example. The leadership is pure poison and obviously pro Isis and against western policies.

In Egypt el Sisi visited the the Coptic Cathedral on their Christmas Eve. The fact remains, Copts the rightful owner of the land are marginalized and treated as second or may be third class citizens while other Arabs from other Islamic countries get much better treatment.
