Adam Morrow, journalist with IPS News, discusses the continuing protests (with declining turnout) in Egypt; the constitutional clash between Islamic groups and secular parties/Coptic Christians on the deference to Islamic law in legislation; why the army will allow elections and civilian government to take hold (barring civil war or a big escalation in violence); widespread opposition to the 1979 Camp David agreement; why the Muslim Brotherhood’s recognition as a legitimate political power will not usher in a global Islamic caliphate; slow progress on opening the Rafah Gaza border crossing; and suspicions that Mahmoud Abbas is asking Egypt to keep the border closed.
