New dictatorship born in Egypt

In the last few days more than 50 people have died in the violent protests against President Mohammed Mursi in Egypt. Mursi has therefore cut short his visit to Germany planned for this Wednesday and cancelled the visit to France scheduled for Friday. The president is now showing his true autocratic face, the left-liberal daily Delo concludes: "The second anniversary of the uprising in Egypt that moved the world and allowed the degraded masses to hope that it was possible to rebel against apparently indestructible totalitarian regimes has produced no good news. On the contrary. Mohammed Mursi is considerably stronger politically that Hosni Mubarak was in the last weeks of his rule. Mursi, who has manoeuvred to leave the secular opposition in an isolated position, has the backing of the huge machinery of the Muslim Brotherhood. The latter has been waiting for its 'historical opportunity' for almost 80 years in many parts of the Arab world. Now the opportunity has come and the Brothers won't let it pass by even if it costs many human lives."
