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.
