Egypt: Morsi's State

Egyptian writer and journalist, Wael Eskandar, comments on the current Egyptian events. He ends his post with a question summarizing President Mohamed Morsi's presidency, from his point of view:

“There are two ways some sort of stability can be achieved, enough oppression or enough justice. Morsi has opted for the former, much like his predecessor. With the state of the people of Egypt it will have to be much more oppression than that practiced by Mubarak. In my mind I have no doubt that Morsi is willing to do what it takes to silence opposition and oppress the people. But the question isn't whether he is willing, the question is whether he is capable.”
