    The dust of the Arab Spring is yet to settle and Egypt is on the brink of another revolution in the backdrop of another dictatorship after Mubarak. Perhaps this is the flavour of life the Egyptians want, a perpetual state of upheaval. Wonder how it all ends for Egypt. :notsure:

    Egypt is not rich. And iirc there was a documentary/article during Mubarak's regime which showed that Egyptians ate a very spartan diet as opposed to the lavish diet showed on state media.

    It was only days ago that Mohammad Morsi was reveling in the successful Egyptian mediation of the Israeli-Gaza ceasefire.

    If I remember correctly, Morsi won his mandate on a 49-51 divide and the liberal-leftist forces that opposed his victory scattered among different candidates; this will consolidate those forces and test that divide.

    It looks like Morsi is taking a leaf out of Hosni Mobarak's book: make yourself helpful on the international stage and appeal to the peoples' regional aspirations on the one hand; and do whatever you want at home, on the other. I think this is a feature particularly characteristic of those muslim nations that are ambitious; you see this in Pakistan's national narrative and political history as well.

    On the one hand, Morsi has consolidate his power as President and certainly acted like a 'pharaoh'; on the other hand, he has taken some really good decisions including sacking the former Prosecutor General and appointing a very capable man as the new one.

    All of this violent instability in the Middle East, though, is not doing the region any good.

    In India some of the most spectacular people were at the helm.

    In Egypt, its the Islamic Brotherhood.

    This shows that Islam is incompatible with democracy.

    Huge protests against Mursi. I read somewhere that people even attacked the office of Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo.

    He doesn't seem polished in politics.

    Our netas should offer courses (and of course get paid!) to these people on how to fool the people without much hiccups.

    News coming in that the Egyptian Government has deployed tanks in Cairo, in a bid to curb protests that have only expanded catastrophically in the past few hours.
