Autumn Atum Egypt Watch

Someone arrogating all power to himself in Egypt.
It's not as if there's no track record of this sort of thing when the post lies vacant. Unsuccessful attempts at arrogating all power to oneself, for whatever good it's going to do, are followed all down the ages in Egypt by endless further attempts to do the same on the part of others. There's never been a recorded time when someone wasn't after the job.
So this round it's Egypt president, the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Mursi making a grab for it in the aftermath of the suspended massacre in Gaza.
It is said that Patriarchy cannot fail Egypt, but that Egypt shall always fail Patriarchy given time.
