We have heard before about Egypt s Deep State and media manipulation but this book delivers chapter and verse about the transitions Mubarak Morsi Sisi The author presents views from many observers and participants including his own terrifying eyewitness accounts His view was that the Muslim Brotherhood government fell not only because Morsi himself was incompetent but also because of sabotage from thee previous governing elite who controlled the police army and distribution of fuel and food and were frightened of losing their privileges And from Gulf autocrats who were worried about democracy in their own countries He suggests that Morsi and the Brotherhood did not pose a threat to Christian minorities freedom of expression or Israel The case he makes is rather convincing Insights like these are increasingly threatened by fake news and the decline of serious journalism I only bought the book to pass the time during a long flight but I am glad I did One feels sympathy for the suffering of the Egyptian people and admiration for those who report on oppression and fight against it
