Two years ago, the people of Egypt arose in anger over the oppressive government of Hosni Mubarak and endeavored to create a modern democratic society. The Muslim Brotherhood was part of this coalition. Initially, its leadership promised not to have a member of the MB become president in order to demonstrate their desire for cooperation. That was then, and then reality sank in. Mohamed Morsi sought the presidency and barely won due to refusal to thousands to vote for any of the candidates. Any intelligent leader would have realized a narrow victory meant there had to be a coalition government. Then reality sank in. Morsi grabbed all power and frightened the nation. Perhaps, if he had some ability to manage a modern economy this might have been forgiven, but he was lost and disastrous.
John Kerry made clear the US State Department understood the “military was asked to intervene by millions and millions of people, all of whom were afraid of descent into chaos, into violence.” The MB totally rejected those comments.The MB still believes in the fantasy that Egyptian people desire two more years of chaos and disregard of rights by Morsi.
