birch1 you hit the nail on the head.  I think that Morsi was beginning to show his real stripes.  The "hood" (brotherhood) is just a group or rabid idiots.  Fanatical is just not the right word.


Mint is properly placed in some of the more stable MENA countries.  Egypt, in my opinion, is just a complete waste if this is the direction that they are going to undertake.


Nevertheless, I think that the Egypt deal will proceed.  We must also remember that several Canadian resource companies are working in Egypt.  Morsi will have to make a choice between his religious superstitions or progress.  And that is all it is about - religious superstitions.
