More Problems in Egypt
By Micah Halpern
Saturday March 9, 2013
Things in Egypt have just gotten even more complicated.
There have been riots over the past few weeks, expressions of discontent with the system and with the government. In addition there have been acts of violence and crackdowns against the protesters. Scores of Egyptians have been killed.
Now the police have begun to walk away from their jobs and to strike. They are fed up with being blamed for the crackdowns and the violence.
The security services have tried to move in to act as police and the Muslim Brotherhood has said that they themselves will step in and become the police.
If Brotherhood people act as police the problems will worsen exponentially. Giving the Brotherhood power and weapons will permit them carte blanche to crush any form of descent and any religious or cultural entity of their choosing.
My prediction --- Expect even more problems, more violence and more extremism to emerge out of Egypt.
