I still have hope in Egypt. It's a nation that's not bothered by the divisions we are foolishly involved with. All Egyptians are Egyptians. They may be divided politically, but not really on religion-basis. There is no Barelvi Egyptian, or Deobandi Egyptian, etc etc. Another cool thing is: they're mostly literate. So they make educated decisions and revolt against corrupt leaders with a clear goal in mind. Nothing is 'aeween mein' ..
I hope the Brotherhood remains true to its word and gets Egypt out of the problems (and the secular army's stronghold) it's currently involved in. Ameen!
