What's your outlook for Egypt after the revolution?

Is the Egyptian revolution will make Egypt forward or is it down in the presence of the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Feb 3 2013: i still think it's possible to get rid of them ,the opposition here is powerful . if the president continued taking sides with his people ( the brotherhood ) , Egyptians would revolt again !

    Jan 31 2013: My view of the outlook for Egypt is the same as my outlook for any other country. When the global economy collapses, things will be different everywhere. National and cultural identities will change, thus borders will change. Even cultures cannot bypass the second LAW of thermodynamics. (Order evolves into chaos)

    I hope for your sake it's going to become more democratic, Egyptians aren’t a stupid people it will settle.

    The Brotherhood's credo was and is, "Allah is our objective; the Quran is our law, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations. This is a little scary & strange because when the brotherhood was founded in 1928 it was supposed to be passive. It has been banned from various countries at different times for good reasons obviously.

    Love

    Jan 31 2013: Something I think about often..so much of what was the American paid for military is still in charge and still frustrating and interfering with true democracy..government "of the people"..and if that is secured..still not seeing what economically will change what brought everyone out to Tahir square to revolt.jobs and the costs of basic goods like food.

    How do you see Egypt solving its economic problems.? Where are the opportunities?

    And can the muslim majority accept israel's presence in the region?

    A lot of problems to overcome..and America is still working out its own after more thna 200 years. ..we have a corporatocracy not a democracy and we have 47% of our people at or below the poverty level. But we do have a rich natural resources base and we can compete globally in producing any product.

    What would you say Egyptians want first?
    • Feb 4 2013: We do not want military intervention nor American politician in Egypt's affairs because the objectives are clear in supporting Israel at different their positions even if they were unjust or wrongedIsrael is one of the most racist country in the world because they rely on Zionism and dissemination of ideas, which have mostly they top affair and values ​​of others and should rule the world E war machine in the event of a refusal to undergo in Alaguetsadesoa warsWe as religious peoples Anaterv also the existence of Israel in the Talmud there is not a homeland for the Jews and most extremist rabbis others reject the existence of the Jewish state of carrying Religion even though Arabs have agreed to

    Jan 30 2013: Shahinaz, you're better to say since you live there. What are the values of the Muslim Brotherhood? Are they values you agree with?

      Feb 3 2013: i'm not shahinaz but i live there so i can tell that i agree with the values of the founder of the brotherhood , he once said " making a mistake is not a defect , but being satisfied with that mistake , continuing making it and justifying it , that's the real mistake ."
      so i think the brotherhood has ignored the real values of the brotherhood and they have made their own ones which give them the right to do whatever they want below the concept of religion !! killing those innocent protestors is such a huge mistake and they know it , but they don't give a damn and they keep on doing that ! do i agree with the values of the so called " Muslim brotherhood " ?? NO !

        Feb 3 2013: Wow, that's sad, es mi vida. So you're living under them, and you don't like them? Is there anything you can do about it?
        • Feb 4 2013: First I thanking you Greg about your comments.Secondly, I am against the values ​​of the Muslim Brotherhood, because what they do stupid policies distort Islam and wasted humanity and this is the only Leis in the Islamic religion, but also in various religions existing in the world.And I see the face of my view that all of the Egyptian people and not a few of it needs to be addressed by those policies through peaceful demonstrations and sit-ins in all fields of Egypt
          To the system to fall although I am aware that The Muslim Brotherhood will not Surrender without bloodshed, but we must not give in to injustice.
