Egyptians are reassessing 1950s-era nationalization policies that squeezed out the Jewish community and other ethnic minorities.
Sisi has launched a tough security crackdown since Morsi's overthrow. Security forces killed hundreds of supporters of his Muslim Brotherhood in the streets and arrested thousands of others.

In Qatar, Turkey, Britain and elsewhere, hundreds of activists have set about trying to isolate Egypt's army-backed government diplomatically.
