Business Insider: The Muslim Brotherhood Has Turned Cairo Into A Dystopia

This wholly secular analysis — which never mentions the murderous persecution of the Christian Copts by mobs of Muslims numbering in the tens of thousands, often aided and facilitated by Egyptian Police themselves — rips the mask off the Obama administration's glowing "Arab Spring" narrative. When a business journal starts reporting such an epic failure, you know it's bad.

Now if they would only report accurately of the escalating, genocidal persecution of the Christian minority by the Muslim mobs...

The Muslim Brotherhood Has Turned Cairo Into A Dystopia
Robert Johnson - Business Insider

When Egyptians took to the streets to overthrow an oppressive government in 2011, the world was on their side.

But in the two years that followed, as Arab Spring turned to Arab Winter, and Egyptians fell under the rule of the oppressive new government of Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, the world has looked away.

This is what Egyptians told us when we visited Cairo at the end of March 2013.

Many disillusioned Egyptians say things are worse than ever. Thugs often run the streets, crime rates have skyrocketed, and police feel they're outgunned, faced with the flood of weapons filling Cairo's streets.

Making matters worse, everything from utilities to gasoline is both more expensive and more difficult to acquire than it was before the Muslim Brotherhood.

(Well, yes. They're using the gas primarily to burn down Coptic churches and cathedrals.)
