The Grand Scam: Spinning Egypt’s Military Coup

Esam Al-Amin
Weekend Edition
July 19-21, 2013.
ElBaradei, who was elected to nothing, is now Egypt’s Vice President, while Morsi, who was freely and democratically elected by the Egyptian electorate, is detained and his whereabouts are unknown. Both of these outcomes were determined by the will of military generals and cheered on by their civilian enablers. The deceit and lies demonstrated by the Egyptian liberal and secular elites are astounding. For years, they taunted the Islamists to respect democratic principles, the rule of law, and submit to the will of the people. They warned against dictatorships, military rule, or sacrificing democractic principles, human rights, personal freedoms, and minority protections. Believing in democratic principles, human rights, and the rule of law is a lifetime commitment. One cannot say, “I will only have these values on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. But for the rest of the week, I will look the other way.” That is called hypocrisy.
Read the rest here.
Comment: And because it is the Muslim Brotherhood sent packing by the ever-present military Obama and his henchmen are barely lamenting the destruction of democracy.

It is more than just "hypocrisy" and ElBaredei is not to be trusted.
