Morsi Mangles Revolution

Mohammed Morsi had a golden opportunity to assist his nation to become a modern society in which entrepreneural ideas and a high tech economy enable people to escape from poverty. Instead, he has allowed forces of clerical backwardness to dominate thinking at a time when new ideas are required in order to create a united Egypt. Islamists who controlled writing of a new Constitution offered a version in which sharia law would become the law.

Tens of thousands are back in Tahrir square furious at betrayal of what they fought to achieve for their nation. “Constitution Void” “The People want to bring down this regime.” Secular forces and Coptic Christians fear the introduction of a Muslim society in which clerics, rather than the people decide what can or can not be done. The do not want government defining their morality!!
