Skip to comments.Nervous on the Nile: Minorities Fear End of Secularism in Egypt (paging Capt. Obvious)

When he took office as Egypt's new president in June, Mohammed Morsi pledged to follow a pluralist policy that respected the rights of women and non-Muslim minorities. But everything he has done since then indicates that he intends to replace the secularist dictatorship of his predecessor with an Islamist one.
Egypt's critical newspapers call this trend "ikhwanization," with "ikhwan" meaning "brothers." The process has seen the president and the Muslim Brotherhood bringing all state-run institutions under their control within a short period of time. This includes state-owned media, where critical editors-in-chief have been replaced with Morsi supporters.
The "Holy Koran," a state-run radio service that has traditionally been moderate in terms of religion, has also become "ikhwanized." It has declared that so-called liberals are nothing more than immoral heretics who have "fallen" from Islam and are bent on the single goal of destroying society, and it has asserted that only the president can lead the country to "true Islam."

Obama gave Egypt, Libya, and now Syria to the brotherhood.
He is engineering the destruction first of Israel, and then the US.
Morsi, doing just what a Moslem fanatic should do, lie, attack, destroy anyone and anything that stands in the way of an Islamic Caliphate.
What else could you expect, western rationality and civilized behavior?
Not surprised at all. One could see it coming.
Thankfully, in a few days, Obama will be defeated.
