Politics in Egypt
Keep Holding Your Breath
It's 1-1/2 years and countless street protests since Egyptians conquered Tahrir Square and forced Hosni Mubarak to resign. Since then, Egyptians have chosen their first legitmately elected Mohamed Morsi, the first non-military president in their history. Morsi negotiated the retreat of the generals who had threatened to pulverize the revolutionary yearnings of the people. Currently, Islamists, Copts, secularists, Salafists and probably, behind the scenes, militarists struggle over a constitution which will set the values of the country. The story isn't over.
