In the wake of enormous protests, Egypt’s military has given President Mohamed Morsi 48 hours to resolve the crisis threatening his government or they will take over and appoint a temporary government. Protesters are cheering the military’s action.
It’s unlikely Morsi can meet this deadline, so he seems about to go the way of Hosni Mubarak. Ten of his cabinet ministers have resigned.
Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood have provided a whole lot more Islam to the country, but they haven’t provided jobs or improved the dire plight of Egypt’s poor, many of whom voted for him and now have turned against him.
It looks as if a more secular government will follow.
It’s interesting how Egyptians are turning against the U. S. and President Obama for supporting Morsi, but all we did was support the government they elected.
