Turkey’s Erdogan pays tribute to ‘martyr’ Morsi after his death

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday paid tribute to former Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi who died in a Cairo hospital after fainting during a court session, calling him a “martyr.”

“May Allah rest our brother Morsi, our martyr’s soul, in peace,” said Erdogan, who had forged close ties with Morsi.

Relations between Turkey and Egypt have been virtually non-existent since the Egyptian military, then led by Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, in 2013 ousted Islamist president Morsi. Sisi has since become president.

Erdogan has strongly denounced Morsi’s ouster and called for the release of Muslim Brotherhood prisoners in Egypt.

Speaking in Istanbul, Erdogan again took aim at Sisi, calling him a “tyrant” who took power in a “coup” and who has trampled on democracy.

“The West has remained silent,” Erdogan said.

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said: “The coup moved him (Morsi) away from the power but his memory will not be erased.”

Egypt is one confusing country, to me.

I mean, the HUGE uprising during the "Arab spring" that led to the ouster of ex-dictator Mubarak, only led to the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood led by Morsi who ended up becoming president.

After Morsi became president, most international watchers of Egypt heaved a sigh of relief and moved on.

What surprised me was that Egypt then made a 180 degree turn back to the same "Mubarak" status, even after publicly humiliating the ex-dictator; taking him to courts in an iron cage!  :D

So, if Mubarak was so bad that he had to be treated like a captured drug lord, pray, how is Abdel Fatah Al Sisi different from Mubarak?

Heck, sometimes when I see Sisi attending international functions, I almost mistake him for Mubarak!

In fact I mistakenly told one friend that the president of Egypt is Mubarak; hahahaha! :o ;D

Well, the whole thing is brain-twisting.

Whatever happened to a Malaysian brand of democracy and politics.
I use Malaysia because it is a predominantly Muslim country.

Why can't these other Muslim countries simply copy Malaysia?

Just puzzling mehn! hehe.  :)) :))

Political instability is experienced almost everywhere in Africa, Egypt's case is no different. With time, things will start to change.
