COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

The dancing, beer-drinking woman who would be Egypt’s next president
Running against al-Sisi might be a risky prospect, but Mona Prince cuts a bold figure in this repressive society

“Abdel Fatah al-Sisi won the last election with 96% of the vote”

Nonsense, Egypt ceased being a democracy with the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi.

Morsi was Egypt’s first and only democratic president.

Quoting Al-Sisi’s official vote tally is precisely the same thing as quoting the election results under the old Soviet system or indeed the referendum votes once Hitler was ensconced as dictator. Always not too far from 100%.

Mona Prince appears an energetic and challenging character, but she as much chance of being “elected” in Egypt as I have.

Morsi was overthrown by cooperation between the CIA and Egypt’s armed forces.

Yes, there was popular discontent, but in what democratic state is there not discontent? Look at today’s America. Morsi was overthrown because Israel had become extremely upset by a couple of his acts and statements.
