#1 Leads one to ask, what is behind the violence?

Let's count the ways.
1. Political deadlock. Parliamentary elections are not expected to begin before October, due to legal wrangling over a new election law. Reform thus remains on the back burner.

2. Investor flight leads to an ever sagging economy. Would you take the family to see the pyramids this summer? Thought not.

3. Sagging economy means no jobs which leads to cause 3 "dashed expectations of the youth."

4. Vigilantism is tied to Egyptians’ loss of faith in the security forces.

Egypt needs serious leadership and the Moslem Brüderbund can't or will not, provide it.
