Egypt is turning into an Islamic Republic?

Say it ain't so.

If Egypt can't become secular, what chance that a "palestine" could ever be secular?

The real story here is we're talking about a power grab by Morsi and not by some general in the Egyptian army. Talk about a paradigm shift! Morsi is a scion of the Muslim Brotherhood, which was a persecuted fringe group for decades. The silver lining in this is that a military dictatorship has apparently been averted.
