  • Op-ed: The Myth of Khaki Democracy

    Screen grab shows Defense Minister Abdel Fattah El Sisi who led the coup against ousted President Morsi on July 3.

    BY IAN BURUMA New York – Egypt and Thailand have little in common, except for one thing. In both countries, at different times, educated people who pride themselves on being democrats have ended up applauding military coups against elected governments. They had resisted oppressive military regimes for many years. But, in Thailand in 2006, as in Egypt last month, they were happy to see their political leaders ousted by force. This perversity is not without reason. The elected leaders in both countries, Thaksin Shinawatra in Thailand and Mohamed Morsi in Egypt, were good examples of illiberal democrats: they tended to…

    In Pictures: Protesters at Higher Judicial Council

    CAIRO – One day following the publication of a front-page report by Egypt’s leading state-owned newspaper Al Ahram claiming that President Morsi was ordered remanded in custody for 15 days by the Prosecutor General, his supporters staged a massive protest in front of the Higher Judicial Council. Morsi, Egypt’s first democratically-elected civilian president, was removed by military coup and has been held incommunicado at an undisclosed location since July 3. The news has since been denied, but Morsi’s whereabouts are yet to be revealed. In a press conference on Monday, Morsi’s family accused the army of abducting their father and…

    Editorial: Paved with good intentions

      BY RANIA AL MALKY Cairo – As Egypt sprints along the road to hell, the military-installed interim President Adli Mansour, chief justice of the Supreme Constitutional Court, took the oath of office yesterday, praising the army’s intervention so that Egypt could “correct the path of its glorious revolution.”  Outside the venerable halls of officialdom, an utter scene of chaos, schizophrenia and repression. The swift popularly-backed military coup that removed Mohamed Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected civilian president, on the first anniversary of his term, began an equally swift reconstruction of a murderous regime that the Egyptian masses rose up…

    In Pictures: Egyptians wait in anticipation for Army speech

    CAIRO – Anti-Morsi protesters in Tahrir Square and Ittihadiya Palace waited in anticipation for the decision of the supreme military council, as the 48-hour ultimatum it gave the president approached its final hour. A jubilant, celebratory mood pervaded both areas as leaks from unnamed military sources implied that President Morsi was practically besieged.  All photos by Hassan Ibrahim.

    Editorial: Egypt’s two presidents

    BY RANIA AL MALKY The election of Egypt’s first democratically chosen president since the beginning of history, Mohamed Morsi, was a dramatic overturning of this country’s political traditions in more ways than one. Morsi is neither the closest male descendant of the last Pharoah, nor the god of choice of the royal priests; nor does he hail from the Mohamed Ali dynasty or from the “superior breed” of military men who overthrew its last monarch. Most of all, he is possibly the only president on earth, not just in Egypt, who has publicly taken the oath of office three times….

    Egypt’s fragmented politics

    BY NATE WRIGHT As a news journalist in Cairo, I have written my fair share of leads over the last year which feature an Egypt “plunging” in and out of crisis or its leaders “squaring up” for another decisive “showdown.” It has been a year of dramatic headlines and extraordinary confusion, as time and again the country’s major players have tried to launch themselves into power, only to find that the platform they were aiming at has shifted beneath them. This was my first post-revolution transition to witness up close — if I can still be permitted to suggest that,…
