.fyre.it... Lynch continues to show his disappointment that the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) seem to have met their demise. After the ouster of Mubarak, the MB won an election that may have been free but definitely not fair. Running a campaign loaded with religious claims using houses of worship to advance their political agenda (of inflated promises e.g.$200 Billion once elected!!) buying votes with meager supplies of sugar and cooking oil worked in a country with 30% illiteracy and almost 40% at or below the poverty line. Labeling political opponents as anti-Islam or worse, got them the votes they needed to run parliament, though performed rather poorly, still had the minimum cohesion as a group to field a candidate for the general election, barely winning in second round against a Mubarak era candidate and a fractured non-MB candidates. Mr. Morsi enjoyed a 70% popularity by August of 2012, soon after started to spiral down after a series of failures and broken promises, alienating most of the populace and focusing only on his MB base of support, and letting his leaders in the MB guidance council run the country from their headquarters. Culminating in his disastrous declaration to immune his decrees from legal oversight on November 22, he started facing the ascending wrath of every segment of society. The military leadership answered the calls of tens of millions who demanded early election as the only way to rid the country of this group taking the country down the road of civil strife particularly when they started to utilize their militias to suppress increasing popular dissent. The people in Egypt woke up quickly to the reality of a secretive transnational organization whose ambitions went far beyond the borders (they exist in 80 countries including the US) and hence, saved their nation and perhaps others from an organization whose ties to jihadi/takfiri terrorist groups including Alqaeda are becoming known more with every passing day.

Of course you find a way to drag Israel into this.
We get it, you hate Israel, but no matter what your opinion is Israel is NOT a terrorist state or organization, unlike Al Qaeda

Laugh all you want but I'm well aware of the hatred for Israel & their dark history, just as I'm well aware of England's dark history & Americas dark history. Not just history but present day wars, coflicts, regime topples, & drone strikes. If you think Israel is a terrorist state than you must also think the same of your own nation, no?
