New New Egypt About as Free as Old New Egypt and Old Egypt

Under Mubarak: We have show trials for our political enemies.

Under Morsi: We have show trials for our political enemies.

Under whoever the hell is in charge now: We have show trials for our political enemies:

n Egyptian court handed death sentences to more than 500 people that state media said were supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, on charges including murdering a police officer.

The criminal court in the southern province of Minya imposed the death penalties at the end of a trial that began on Saturday, said Osama Metwally, director of security in Minya. The court referred the sentences to Egypt’s Grand Mufti, the country’s leading authority on religious law, for ratification, the state-run Middle East News Agency reported. The ruling sparked an outcry from human rights activists.

It's funny how the more things change the more they stay the same in the countries.

I guess if there's always going to be some SOB in charge, it's better that he's our SOB.
