Yet another step forward towards crumbling foreign policy. This will set the stage for lack of influence in the ME region for the present POTUS. Is Egypt timing their activities around the POTUS Election? Somehow IMO, the history seems to be repeating itself where democracy is forced out only for its laws to be re-written with religious twists and the citizens voice their concerns and yet another puppet is resurrected for a later day ?

The proposed draft states Egypt will be guided by the principles of sharia, or Islamic law. Critics say loopholes could mean limits on basic rights or freedoms....
Egypt unveiled a proposed draft of a new constitution Wednesday amid criticism from liberals and human rights groups that the document is tilted toward Islamic law and endangers the democratic ideals of the uprising that last year overthrew Hosni Mubarak.

The partial draft, which was opened for public review, immediately revealed the battle lines between Islamists and secularists over the nation's character. Dominated by ultraconservative and moderate Islamists, the 100-member assembly that wrote the charter made it clear that civil and religious rights would be shaped through the prism of Islam.

They are removing all hope that Egypt remains an open and free nation. Damnit... I put off seeing the White House and Statue of Liberty because 'They'd always be there'..right? Seemed logical before 9/11. Now, with these people, the world will miss seeing the Pyramids for being in the equivalent of Saudi Arabia, not the open place Egypt has always been.

I hope the Islamic Republic of it's becoming also real friendly about commerce with the West. I can't help but notice that little strip of water they have sitting on their Eastern border. You know...It's a small little alley of the stuff really. Just a slip of water.....but without open access, rounding South Africa to get to that part of the world will be a real pain in the butt, eh?

As in - if you aren't Islamic - you have none?

Yep, this is part of the next stage of the NWO

you see, America and its foreign policy has expired; any event and/or operation can quickly be foiled as an 'Illuminati' or 'masonic' or 'zionist' plot to achieve a hidden agenda.

They can no longer pursue that method of using the USA directly to coup, attack, interfere.

this isnt 1960 or 1980 or 2000

from now on, It will be Turkey and Saudi Arabia that topple government for the US in the middle east

Who knows what the muslim brotherhood agenda is, but apparently the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD needs to set the stage and face off with ISRAEL while appearing as the AGGRESSOR, so then Israel can destroy Egypt and that will be justified
