President Morsi of Egypt was and is the legally elected President of Egypt.
While one can differ with his and his party’s politics, but he and the Muslim Brotherhood had eschewed the path of violence and chosen the path of peace and democratic norms to acquire political power.
But this fragrant Spring in Egyptian politics was tragically short lived and cut short by Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia, fearing the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and its effect in weakening and possibly losing the Al Saud hold on the land of Nejd and Hejaz, a bizarre phenomenon in itself, of a country named after a family, conspired with the USA to oust a legally elected government in a military coup and install a puppet regime complete with a pliant judiciary and all.
Gen Sisi, in a line of willing and shameless military dictators, using the might of the Egyptian Military, funded by Saudi Arabia and supported by the international might of the USA, did the Macbethian deed, and in that sowed the seeds of a terribly violent future.
The Muslim Brotherhood is being cornered. Extreme elements will once again pursue violence and militancy as a means to political power. They now have a very strong argument to justify their position. A position which will engulf all, including Saudi Arabia whose terribly evil designs to safeguard the Al Saud throne, whether against Sunni Egypt or Shia Iran will reap a terrible wind.
The death sentence awarded to President Morsi or others must not be carried out. Saudi Arabia must be stopped from once again throwing the Muslim world into turmoil as they did in 1975 when they started to export Wahabiism and all that it has manifested today.
If anybody deserves the death sentence it is those who orchestrated the downfall of President Morsi’s legally elected government.
