Mohamed Morsy is moving to consolidate power In Egypt for the Islamic Brotherhood and to confront Israel and the West. Caroline Glick has the best and fullest report yet on what Morsy actually is doing. A military dictatorship under Mubarak is now replaced by an Islamist dictatorship under Morsy, as Glick explains.
None of this is being reported adequately in the United States. If people are not in the street demonstrating, scaling walls and setting fires, our media lose interest. The current US Government meanwhile has its head in the sand of the desert. One or two developments that Glick describes might not alarm. But anyone who bothers to follow the lines of changes to their obvious conclusion, as Glick does, cannot help but realize that the Arab Spring has been mismanaged by the US.
Israel now is threatened more seriously than perhaps ever before. Its friends in the United States are divided. The US, meanwhile, is damaged tremendously by a smug, self-destructive energy policy that has prevented our independence from Mideast oil.
