Sisi keeps Egyptian premier to fix economy after turmoil

I don’t think Sisi will bring the desired stability that Egypt desires. The economy is too frail and reliant on donations by Arab countries. The overthrow and banishment of Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood has led to extremist groups committing violent acts that will keep tourism minimal and investment away. Egypt appears to be headed for continued unrest like Libya, Yemen, Afghanistan and other countries where extremists persist and try to invoke their will through violence.

Sisi is the best of even worse options currently available to Egypt. The alternative, an Islamist theocracy, Sharia Law et al, is far worse. Those very same “Intellectuals” in the West that decry the “brutal repressions” by the Egyptian Military, are all hypocrites, as they or their free spirited daughters or wives for example, wouldn’t survive one day in an Islamic State. Worse, they wouldn’t even have the chance to decry the unfairness of it all. So, shut up. Mursi and the “democratic” Muslim Brotherhood, are not a bunch of nice guy, democratic people. No, they are the antithesis of democracy and Sisi should wipe them out if he can.
