Currently, there is a fierce fight between the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and the Egyptian Military.

The MB is trying to weaken the military's grip on power by any means possible. By causing problems with the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) while the economy is collapsing, the MB has made it clear that their primary interest is controlling all of the power in Egypt, not improving the ailing Egyptian economy.
