#1 Wouldn't muzz fundamentalist types lean toward "allan struck him down" as an explanation for going from "animated" to "inanimate" in an instant?

Nope. Muzz fundamentalist types lean toward "Yehud done it".

#3 Unmentioned is the fact that Morsi opened the prisons and Islamist terrorists took off. Many settled in Sinai where the results continue to be felt today.

#4 Morsi may be the first elected Egyptian Prez in millennia, but al Sisi is doing better than expected. Certainly better than if the MosBro were running the show.

I have a vague recollection of the voting being a bit hinky, but that may just be the ME in general. Saddam did well in Iraqi elections, IIRC.
