The dedication and success of the Tamarod rebellion against President Morsi is awe-inspiring, but the movement’s current trust in the army is worrying.
The millions on the streets, not dressed in khaki, democratically ejected Mohamed Morsi. Now it’s time to remove the military from Egypt’s politics.
Supporting a military dictatorship to impose secular ideals is paradoxical and will only perpetuate and entrench the deep state in Egypt.
Egypt’s next president is likely to be against the revolution. Revolutionaries must forge a viable opposition and push for social and economic change.
Should Egyptians side with the anti-revolutionary military old guard or the counterrevolutionary Islamist vanguard when choosing their next president?
With little representation in official politics, Egypt’s revolutionary forces must continue to create a political third way on the streets.
