Who Lost Egypt?
A terrifying dose of reality from one very sharp warrior Jew.
"On Sunday, new president Mohamed Morsy completed Egypt’s
transformation into an Islamist state. In the space of one week, Morsy
sacked the commanders of the Egyptian military and replaced them with
Muslim Brotherhood loyalists, and fired all the editors of the
state-owned media and replaced them with Muslim Brotherhood loyalists."
"He also implemented a policy of intimidation, censorship and closure
of independently owned media organizations that dare to publish
criticism of him."
|Morsy revoked the military’s constitutional role in setting the
foreign and military policies of Egypt. But he maintained the junta’s
court-backed decision to disband the parliament. In so doing, Morsy gave
himself full control over the writing of Egypt’s new constitution."
"As former ambassador to Egypt Zvi Mazel wrote Tuesday in The
Jerusalem Post, Morsy’s moves mean that he “now holds dictatorial powers
surpassing by far those of erstwhile president Hosni Mubarak.”
"In other words, Morsy’s actions have transformed Egypt from a military dictatorship into an Islamist dictatorship."
