In Egypt, Tahrir Square is on the boil again, but the target of the protestors this time is not the military regime they helped topple, but the man they voted to power through democratic elections. President Mohammmed Morsi, of the Muslim Brotherhood, swept to power in elections this June, but his decision earlier this week to assign sweeping powers to himself has sparked violent unrest, with many seeing it as an attempt by the Brotherhood to monopolise political control. The events bear out the fears we had encountered while filming for Truth vs Hype in Egypt earlier this year, when the same Islamists who are in power today told us that they will adopt a moderate path, an argument which even then had left many unconvinced.
