If All Muslims Were To Walk Like An Egyptian...

...there could be hope yet for the rest of the Muslim world. It appears that it did not take the Egyptians all that long to realize that following in the footsteps of Islamic extremism, in the form of President Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood running Egypt, was not the way to go and that they needed to change direction.

Millions of them taking to the streets in protest against Morsi and his extremist government were supported by the Egyptian army and within mere weeks of the commencement of these latest sets of protests the Egyptian Army stepped in and has taken control of Egypt pending new elections. I guess the many years and billions of dollars worth of U.S. support for the Egyptian military was not wasted after all. Hopefully, something good will come of this in that it seems the Egyptians have taken a step toward a right turn by realizing that hard line Islamist extremism is not for them. See:
