Egypt Becoming a Nightmare for Muslim Brothers


egyptHaving survived 80 years of persecution to achieve power democratically, the Muslim Brotherhood suddenly finds itself the focus of widespread popular hatred. Never have Egyptians been in such dire economic straits and civil disobedience is rampant. Demonstrations calling for getting rid of Morsi and of the Brotherhood are held on a daily basis in Cairo and in cities all over the country.

Elections held in student unions throughout the country saw Brotherhood candidates defeated by independent candidates. Elections to the key Journalists Syndicate saw the victory of Diaa Rashwan, head of the Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies and a bitter opponent of the Brotherhood. In other words the Brotherhood is losing both the youth and the elites.
