As Egypt’s liberal and secular activists erupted with anger accusing the Muslim Brotherhood of trying to take over the country, former US Senate foreign policy analyst James Jatras tells RT that Egypt is on its way to becoming a caliphate.

­“Morsi and the Brotherhood had triumphed much quicker than anybody expected, and no one should doubt what their intentions are: strict enforcement of Sharia and the recreation of the caliphate,” Jatras says.

RT: Friday showed that Egypt is far from calm. What does it tell us about the results of President Morsi’s first 100 days in office?

James Jatras: We are seeing a rapid Islamization of the political structure in Egypt, and nobody should be surprised by this. There was a lot of discussion about the power struggle that would ensue between Morsi and the military, and it seems that Morsi and the Brotherhood had triumphed much quicker than anybody expected. And no one should doubt what their intentions are: strict enforcement of Sharia and the recreation of the caliphate, the Khilafah. So I think this statement about jihad, to recapture Jerusalem, should not come as any surprise to anyone.

  1. So what if Egypt is heading towards Sharia enforcement? Any Leftist worth his salt will tell you that Sharia is perfectly compatible with human rights and democracy!

    Within a year or so we can ask all the beach tourists and pyramid tourists what Egypt is like. I suspect that things will have improved for the topless sun-worshippers and the Sphinx enthusiasts.
    I guess that they’ll all be having a great time enjoying their time in the gorgeous weather of Cairo and Sharm-el-Sheikh, or then again I suspect that they won’t be visiting that part of the World after all!
