Egypt's interim leader swore in a Cabinet on Tuesday that included women and Christians but no Islamists as the military-backed administration moved swiftly to formalize the new political order and present a more liberal face that is markedly at odds with the deposed president and his supporters.

Egypt's military already wields great influence behind the scenes, and the army chief, Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who ousted Morsi on July 3, was given a promotion in the Cabinet. He became a first deputy prime minister in addition to keeping his post as defense minister.

I never thought I’d prefer Egypt’s government over the one WE currently have.
“women and Christians but no Islamists” wish we could have a government like that
This is a hopeful development. Still, I wish that we could give an instant path to citizenship for Coptic Christians who want asylum in the United States. That is a group who could bring great things to the nation.
They did that for decades. The crackdown was huge after Sadat was assassinated. I remember a story a while back (here on FR) of some Islamic terrorist in Egypt custody who apparently committed suicide by repeatedly ramming his head into the wall. They tried to stop him, honest.
I'm not sure what that looks like.

Include Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt transition: ElBaradei
I never thought I would read those words.
This is good news.
Well, the Egyptian military has chosen that. The country elected the Muslim Brotherhood. We'll see which way it swings.
Egypt is now my second country of choice, after Mother Russia.
how sad, .
Egyptians took to the streets and forced a dictator out while millions of Americans still have not marched on DC and camped out.
How about talk radio and sites like this getting millions out to DC, and camp over night to force our dictator and race baiter out
Great news. Thank you, God.
