Recently, many Egyptians have turned against the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). This is largely due to the country’s rapidly deteriorating economic situation following their ascension to power.

Electricity cuts due to a lack of energy and long queues for gas have become commonplace since the MB assumed deposed president Hosni Mubarak’s position. Furthermore, attempts to limit freedom of press and censor the Internet have sparked outrage against the Islamist ruling regimen by many Egyptian liberals.
