By Micah HalpernI'm Predicting:
Newspapers in Egypt have been filled with coverage of their revolutionary events. The United States does not fare well in those reports. The US is presented as totally out of touch with what is happening in Egypt.
The Egyptians cannot believe that the United States really believes that the ousting of Morsi was a coup. For them it is clear as day that it was a social revolution and that Morsi could have, and should have, simply stepped down.
Amidst all the coverage on the revolution was an important and almost overlooked account about bringing law back to the Sinai.
The Egyptians found and blew up 40 terrorist tunnels coming from Gaza. These tunnels transport arms that provide ammunition to terrorists who attack Egyptians. And indeed, just today, an Egyptian border crossing was attacked by terrorists.
Egypt has a long way to go. But for now, expect the Egyptian army to bring back law and order throughout the country.
