The complaint extended beyond Morsi’s fundamentalism; Saleh decries his incompetence. Responding to power outages, he suggested “maybe housewives should reduce the amount of laundry they did.”
Confusion over just who or what the United States government supports has created a consensus — anger at America. Protesters believe the Obama Administration supports the Muslim Brotherhood and the Brotherhood accuses it of supporting the military coup.
“The bottom line, Saleh writes, “is the negative response to what is viewed as the constant meddling of the U. S. in the affairs of others, all for the sake of supporting the state of Israel.”
In the wake of Morsi’s ouster, Saleh says, “The army did what it needed to do ... support the will of the people.”
Saleh isn’t certain how long she will remain in Egypt. “I take things as they come.” Much depends on the quality of life, and “if I enjoy my life here and feel that I am doing rewarding work professionally.”
She yearns for a better life in Egypt. “I hope that peace will come to this country. ... I would like to see Egypt regain its footing on a path towards true democracy including freedom and justice. ... I would love to see Egypt and Egyptians get all they rightfully deserve in my lifetime.”
