  • Morsi ousted by military in Egypt

    This is why it was so problematic to end the democratic experiment so early in Egypt, fearing that Egypt would turn into Iran. I doubt that an Egypt, that very much relies on beach tourism and western investments,would be able to do what Iran is capable of doing through its oil.

    During the protests, Morsi was arguing that foreign countries were behind the unrest. As conspiracy theories are rampant in the muslim world, such talk gets drowned out. When Erdogan uses autocratic measures, especially since the fall of the Muslim Brotherhood, he uses the argument that his opponents are aiming for a coup like they did in the 90s. If the muslim brotherhood comes back to power, it can probably use such an argument to crack down on dissent.And it will be much easier to do so than if there hadn't been a coup.

    Though surveys in Egypt can be unreliable, this is the numbers that Gallup reported of the support the Muslim Brotherhoods party, Freedom and justice party, had.

    One thing I'm wondering is if it was legally possible for real secularists liberal and leftists, to use the constitution that was under the Muslim Brotherhood, to go to court for a ban on salafists and maybe even the Muslim Brotherhood. The judiciary, was already taking decisions very much contrary to the interest of the islamists.

    Article 6 of the egyptian constitution said
    The political system is based on the principles of democracy and shura (counsel), citizenship (under which all citizens are equal in rights and duties), multi-party pluralism, peaceful transfer of power, separation of powers and the balance between them, the rule of law, and respect for human rights and freedoms; all as elaborated in the Constitution.

    No political party shall be formed that discriminates on the basis of gender, origin or religion.

    Not sure if there are any experts on egyptian law, but could article 6 been used to change the constitution, by removing certain parties, atleast temporarily, to pass an amended constitution by nonislamists. Such a constitution, wouldn't necessarily be in line with secular liberalism, but might've pushed the constitution in that direction.
