Judith Miller: Change in Egypt Possible, But Part of a Process

Monday, 08 Apr 2013 06:41 PM

By Bill Hoffmann

Egyptians must put away their petty political squabbles and work for real change if they want to strip the Muslim Brotherhood of power, according to award-winning journalist Judith Miller.

“You and I don’t like the Brotherhood. Many Egyptians don’t like the Brotherhood. But until the democratic secular opposition figures out a way to get its electoral act together, to put aside their petty grievances . . . ’’ Miller told Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg.

Miller said Egyptians working to eject President Mohamed Morsi should realize their efforts are “part of a process. It’s learning about democracy.

“It’s really unpleasant and really dangerous for minorities and for women … Unless you’re going to give up on the revolution and go back to the old ways of doing things, you have to have some patience with this process.’’

She said the United States has protested the ongoing violence between government forces against dissenters in Cairo and other cities, even though it has not come from the top.

“Both the embassy in Cairo and the State Department in these daily briefings have condemned the violence,’’ Miller said.

“Now, it hasn’t come from senior American officials or the president, that might have greater resonance … but the U.S. government has spoken up.’’
