A judicial panel set up by Egypt's military-backed government supported a legal challenge to the status of the Muslim Brotherhood on Monday, compounding a drive to crush the movement behind the elected president deposed by the army in July.
While short of a formal ban on the Brotherhood, which worked underground for decades under Egypt's previous military-backed rulers, the panel's advice to a court to remove its non-governmental organization status threatens the million-member movement's future in politics.
What better way to eliminate the MB as a political force then to revoke their status as a political party, especially when everyone's concentrating on Syria? It's a rapid return to the bad old days in Egypt and it's looking like they'll get away with it, too.
I mean, what's the US going to do at this point? Anything? Should they?
We've got bigger problems now.
