Egyptians believe that President Morsi has conned the United States, just as he has conned Egypt. The citizens have been watching in horror as the newly elected president has been acting "every part the tyrant."
NBC News outlines a heartbreaking scene being experienced by Egyptians, as an "extremist interpretation" of Islam is being "forced down their throats". They believe that while President Obama has hailed the Egyptian President as being crucial to the ceasefire between the radical Palestinians in Gaza and Israel, despite the clear positions the Egyptian President has repeatedly made against Israel, he has also been busy setting up a constitution that could amount to another fifty years of Muslim Brotherhood rule.
Even worse, they warn, is that what is happening in Egypt may very well spread across the Middle East as radical Islam takes over as a result of the Arab Spring, so hailed by the left, including the Occupy Wall Street Movement, Socialists, and even President Obama.
In Tahrir Square, one man told the NBC Foreign Correspondent, Richard Engel, "Obama is supporting a terrorist." The President of Egypt has received much criticism for making himself above the law, by declaring himself "above judicial oversight, his decisions final and unassailable". Amidst criticism, Morsi said that he didn't "want the extra authorities, but that they were necessary for the good of the people and to safeguard the revolution." How ridiculous. Does anyone really believe such rubbish? One year ago, the mainstream media actively downplayed the radicalism of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Many Egyptians believe the new constitution leaves "Shariah Law" on the table. The constitution also allows the government to act as the "morality police," which will surely not go well for women, and also allows for child brides. The real war on women has nothing to do with free contraception, and everything to do with reimplementing such practices as honor killings and female genital mutilation, a "tradition" favored by the Muslim Brotherhood radicals.
