Personally I think it was all a front for extreme Islam to get a hold on Egypt, which it has. Ironic that the ousted leader did not allow the Muslim Brotherhood a hold in Egypt. A total and utter disaster will unfold in time.

With no constitution to regulate the activities of the leaders of a country with ever-expanding borders, an illegal siege around the Gaza strip, and a growing number of illegal settlements, Gilad cannot possibly mean that Egypt has a “shocking dictatorial force.” Not if he’s comparing it to his own government. This piece must be satire criticizing the mother of all dictatorships: Israel’s government.

The following poem is found in the school book “Maxwell’s Elementary Grammar”, copyright 1904.

“Oho!” said the pot to the kettle;
“You are dirty and ugly and black!
Sure no one would think you were metal,
Except when you’re given a crack.” “Not so! not so!” kettle said to the pot;
“‘Tis your own dirty image you see;
For I am so clean – without blemish or blot –
That your blackness is mirrored in me.”
