    While the people of Egypt suffer from growing poverty and unemployment rates, the country’s generals are well off. They have managed to strengthen their economic power in the aftermath of the revolution. […] While privately owned companies struggle under the burden of overall chaos and political insecurity, the army appears to have been unaffected. According to some observers, the army is indeed profiting from the crisis. Over the past months, the government in Cairo has commissioned construction companies operated by the military to carry out several large infrastructure projects. In November, Interim President Adly Mansour had issued a decree allowing...

    Egypt is taking off the gloves when it comes to handling the Muslim Brotherhood’s ongoing protests. The country’s Minister of Information, Durriyah Sharaf Al Din, announced in a statement to the press on Wednesday that the Egyptian government has decided to act decisively against “terrorism” by rioters who threaten Egypt’s national security and do not receive support of citizens. Sharaf Al Din noted that acts of violence are unacceptable, and given the public support for the struggle waged by the government against terrorism and violence, the government has decided to take steps to put an end to the anarchy.

    Adly Mansour, Egypt’s Interim President, has chosen to begin Egypt’s conversion to democracy by reinstating and modifying ousted President Morsi’s controversial 2012 Islamic Shariah constitution. Finalized just five months ago and widely rejected by Egyptians (more than 70 percent), but somehow “approved” through a referendum “vote”, this dream-come-true for Islamists was the leading cause of Morsi’s overthrow. An historic verdict by Egypt’s judiciary dismissed the constitutional assembly working on the 2012 constitution draft because the assembly was dominated by Muslim Brotherhood and Salafi mainly interested in a religious agenda. This time around, there is no debate that Egypt must have...

    Egypt's temporary President Adli Mansour announced the establishment of a commission of inquiry which will investigate the events surrounding the deaths of at least 51 people Monday in clashes outside a military building in Cairo. At least 435 people were wounded as well in the incident. Most of those killed were Muslim Brotherhood members, and the chain of events leading to the deaths were being hotly contested by the Brotherhood and the Egyptian Army. The Brotherhood claimed that those killed were innocent, doing nothing more than holding a sit-in against the ousting of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi in what they...

    IkhwanOnline, the official Web site of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, posted an article on Thursday asserting that the country’s new interim president, Adly Mansour, is secretly Jewish. The article, since taken offline,suggested that Mansour was part of an American and Israeli conspiracy to install Mohamed ElBaradei, a former U.N. official and Egyptian opposition figure, as president. Mansour, the supreme justice of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court, was sworn in as interim president on Thursday after the military announced that President Mohamed Morsi was no longer in charge. Morsi was a close ally of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has held large demonstrations protesting...
