    It is clear that there is no rule of law in Egypt. Following the overthrow and imprisonment of the president by the military, the law disintegrated. Now judges make rulings based on whim and sit in 'courts' which are no more than bribing stations.

    Egypt is just another state that has been successfully demolished by a western-backed 'colour revolution'.

    Odd that people were so naive that they did not expect this kind of thing to happen.

    They are Muslim Brotherhood royalty, allegedly. They were feeling very smug, right up until the Egyptian government pulled the rug out from under them. Why they didn't expect it I don't know and there's nothing the Irish government can do about it.

    For those of you who might be a little but "challenged" by the information age, I've taken the trouble of looking up the Muslim Brotherhood on the internet. Here from Wikipedia.org in clear terms is a summary of their aims. Note that I'm not criticizing the Bro'-hood. I'm just quoting.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muslim_Brotherhood


    The Brotherhood's English-language website describes its principles as including firstly the introduction of the Islamic Sharia as "the basis for controlling the affairs of state and society" and secondly, working to unify "Islamic countries and states, mainly among the Arab states, and liberate them from foreign imperialism".[37]

    According to a spokesman on its English-language website, the Muslim Brotherhood believes in reform, democracy, freedom of assembly, press, etc.

    Draw whatever conclusions you want.

    Everyone lambasting the Egyptian govt for being undemocratic etc. Well the country is teetering on bankruptcy and going through a time of turmoil. Compare putting some "heh-heh" -- foreign young agitator behind bars with what William T Cosgrave or Collins did when this nation was in turmoil. Or even what Liam Cosgrave did in the 70's/80's.
    And he was put to his grave like a saint last week!
    Sanctimonious, No?


    And let me just explain a few basic facts about government and administration. Democracy is something very difficult to attain. But first and foremost a country needs stablility and peace. Justice and democracy tend to come after that -- if you're lucky. But first and foremost you need peace and stablilty. When "Things fall apart and the centre cannot hold", everything is up for grabs. And noone knows where the govt (or the dictator) will lead them.

    Peace and Stability, that is exactly what the Halawa active service unit was trying to destroy in Egypt when they went on their "Holidays".

    Halawa is still a pawn in a larger game. The happy-clappies don't seem to realise this eventhough they have had years to try to understand it. Perhaps some deal will be done to get him out but it is not a priority issue now that he has been acquitted.
