Default Egypt election: we may see an Islamist president

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-18095973

Such a potential outcome would be a worrying development for Christians, Israel and U.S.

Default "harassing Christians"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-18317786

"Egyptian presidential hopeful Ahmed Shafiq, a former PM under jailed ex-leader Hosni Mubarak, has accused his Islamist rival of harassing Christians.

Mr Shafiq, who was speaking as protests continued in Cairo over the outcome of Mubarak's trial, said the Muslim Brotherhood aimed to create a "sectarian" state."

Default military takes over Egypt

Some cry 'coup' as Egypt's highest court annuls parliament, military extends power
http://www.cnn.com/2012/06/14/world/...html?hpt=hp_t1

"Cairo (CNN) -- Egypt's highest court declared the parliament invalid Thursday, and the country's interim military rulers promptly declared full legislative authority, triggering a new level of chaos and confusion in the country's leadership."

Default Egypt supreme court calls for parliament to be dissolved

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-18439530

"A Muslim Brotherhood politician said it would send Egypt into a "dark tunnel"."

This has the potential to send Egypt backwards very quickly

Default Army vows to hand power to elected president

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-18493719

Military are trying to hold onto power, whilst giving the people a cut-down version of democracy.

It will not produce peace.
Rather, it will lead to new, major civil unrest.
