Morsi Will Have Little Leeway

Egypt’s President Morsi to Elect a Christian and a Woman as Vice Presidents
Thank you for the link.
I’m less than 10mins into the interview and already Mr Bradley has echoed what I said months ago about the Islamists hijacking the revolution in Egypt.
Nice to know I’m in such good company.
He’s there to beg for money. Egypt is really hurting over the lost tourist traffic and the lost business due to unrest.
The military will give Morsi more political power if he can bail out Egypt financially.
The Copts are a minority but control about 40% of the wealth so Morsi has to make nice with them also.
He’s a very determined and ideological islamist, let’s see how real world problems soften him up.

Not since “the revolution in Egypt”, i.e. since 2011.. BUT since 1979 - starting with Iran, Khomeini..
Not exclusively regarding Egypt, but Libya, Tunisia, and more... it has been a gradual, but steady infiltration of “Islamists hijacking the SO-CALLED Revolution”, every where in the ME, North Africa, the Moslem world, and the latest coming near you in the “West”.
The worst part is & has been that it has been allowed, by the West, to continue, for supposedly different reasons - that’s a point of contention.
That, and to reassure the Kingdom that he’s not going to return Egypt to its old state of war with Saudi interests. He wants control of commercial interests and personal wealth, basically like those who currently run everything in Egypt, and knows that a revolution / revolt / uprising / protest isn’t going to deliver that into his hands. Let’s see how long he lasts. Thanks gandalftb.
The only reason that I can think of is that the brain dead *world leaders* want a New World Order agenda. They want to get the strong authoritarian leaders like Mubarrak out of the way to allow the Muslim Brotherhood to reign. The Muslim Brotherhood is in the White House and has been since Bill Clinton and George W. Bush (p!ss be upon Grover Norquist.
Notice that they hardly say a word about the killing and persecution of Christians and Hindus in many lands but they have such tender hearts for the poor suffering muslims—and of course, don’t forget that the great majority of muslims are overwhelmingly peaceful and then there is Al Quaeda which just popped out of nowhere, not having anything to do with majority muslim tradition.
These empty suit twits don’t know they have a tiger by the tail.
>>”then there is Al Quaeda which just popped out of nowhere, not having anything to do with majority muslim tradition.”<<
Right, AQ has nothing to do with majority muslim tradition. AQ in muslim tradition is a FOREIGN Invention.
As much as I don’t like the infiltration & the muslim tradition, its deliberate allowance to infiltrate is so very obvious, East or West.
Incidentally, there is no “muslim” tradition.
The original “tradition” can only be in the context of Arabic bedouin tradition, and, then, it is at best convoluted to the extreme, to date. “You had to be there to know”, as they say.. if I recognize it, so do thousands of others, all over the world. Very naive to think otherwise.
It, the convolution, is also called POLITICS.
