The Muslim Brotherhood, Mohd Morsi and Egypt
I have been wondering what is in store for Egypt. The country is passing through a tough time. The economy is sliding down and unless the USA does not give its'gift' of a billion dollars periodically, the Egyotian economy can just flounder. No oil and no minerals, Egypt is one of the less blessed nations of the Middle East in this regard. The matter is compounded by the victory of the Muslim Brotherhood candidate as the President of Egypt. It is not an overwhelming victory as his opponent polled almost 49% of the popular vote compared to 51% for Morsi.
