Morsi Gambles With Egypt

Mohamed Morsi garnered 51% of the vote for president, but only 50% of people voted. In other words, Morsi has the support of about 25% of the population. One would think in such a situation, Morsi would work with other groups, he would engage Coptic Christians and seek to be a unifier. Alas, that is not the Morsi way of politics. He ordered the dissolved Parliament to return to work knowing full well it is dominated by Muslim conservatives.

It is necessary for the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces(Scaf) to forbid this action. There is need for a Cabinet which incorporates those of all viewpoints. The current Parliament no longer represents a majority of Egyptians.
