Egypt's Identity Crisis

Egypt's Identity Crisis
The Washington Post
16 August 2013
 
 
From millions in Cairo's Tahrir Square two years ago, revolting against Hosni Mubarak's repressive rule and chanting "Silmiyya, silmiyya" (peaceful, peaceful), to a bloody Wednesday, with hundreds dead and many more wounded as security forces stormed sit-ins by supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi. From a mostly peaceful transition to a violent crackdown. From calls for democracy to a state of emergency.
