Egyptian Military Plan

Egypt’s military plans to suspend the new constitution and dissolve the Islamist parliament.

If new elections are held soon, as President Obama is urging, there still aren’t strong secular, democratic parties waiting in the wings.

The better-off, educated Egyptians who are protesting Morsi’s and the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamism are joined by poorer, less educated Egyptians, who are far, far more numerous.  But they are protesting more about the lack of jobs and economic progress than about a lack of pluralism and religious tolerance.  There’s unity against Morsi, but not unity for anything or anyone.
