Cartoon That Clarifies The Egyptian Crisis

Tennessee's Chattanooga Times Free Press published this cartoon.

It very simply clarifies what the whole Egyptian revolution is all about.  After toppling the autocratic- albeit mostly secular- rule of Hosni Mubarak, the battle is now raging between those who want Democracy, and those Islamist/Muslim Brotherhood types who want a Theocracy.

The secular Egyptians believed that Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood would rule with a moderate hand. That proved to be an incredibly foolish mistake. Now they are all suffering the consequences.

I doubt either side is going to give up.
