  • Egypt demonstrates on a near daily basis that progress – whether economic, social or religious – should not be taken for granted. It was only 50 years or so ago that they were a fairly advanced society in terms of women’s rights and religious freedom (relative to the rest of the Muslim world) though by no means a model of democracy. Sadly, that has not been the case for some time as the Muslim Brotherhood embarked on their long-term strategy of instituting the cultural norms of 7th Century Arabia for the masses while retaining technological perks and lifestyle benefits of the 21st century for the religious and political elites.
