      He is pushing people to be real terrist and to become extremely aggressive. This pressure will cause uncontroled explosion at end.
      And actually in that time we don't want to see face of America or Europe because the supported him.

        Compared to Erdogan, Sisi is innocent. Erdogan is bombing 60,000 innocent women and children as we speak. WIth the help of modern weapons bought from stolen money from syria. Turkish Ottoman and Hitler are idols of Erdogan

          You think bringing down a stable government that improves the country will help egypt? all you do is creating syria 2.0, and guess where the egyptian refugees will escape to once their country falls into civil wars and instabilities...AMERICA AND THE EU!
          Enjoy the refugees and terrorists you will create!

                          @Zain Hanson nope, from where do you get your information, if people don't like him they wouldn’t hate him either, there going to be in between. The only ones who are Egyptians and hate Sisi are the Muslim brotherhood.

                        meanwhile in America they cry about how free speech is getting us killed and needs to go. I have an idea..Let's get rid of free speech just long enough for all NYT journalists to be executed by the government. Then we can bring it right back.

                                    How can they resist better? Maybe better concealment when filming for one thing. Camouflage your cameras and all. Avoid detection. The Police have no fear of the law, I would say.

                                    Be sneaky. Don't get caught. (Thank you for the piles of martyrs. I get the point. I really wouldn't care for anymore.) Live to fight another day, someway, somehow, maybe.

                                                Egypt's foreign debt is 106% of GDP. 95.5% of Egypt's territory is dead hot sand desert.  More than 90% of 100 million Egypt's population live in the Nile valley being 100% relaying on the Nile where Egypt adds 0% of water to the Nile but it comes far away from the Ethiopian highland. Religion, race, ethnicity and clan divisions and discriminations are bad and deadly in Egypt as they are in the rest of the ME such as Saudi, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and others. Egypt is in a civil war in Sinai since 2013. Its population grows dramatically while the resources and opportunities are getting less and less.  In Cairo are living 22 million which is more than the population of Norway, Den Mark, Finland and Sweden. Cairo's population will reach 30 million before 2040.  

                                                Egypt's is facing a very huge task ahead. The only way they can try to get out of it or minimize the damage is having the rule of law, democratic process and free and fair election.  They way the Sisi rule is dealing today against the citizen will not solve anything but will
                                                worsen the situation ahead.  Egypt must be free from the Military rule and Islamic religion anything including MB that was created by the English colonizers in 1929 using against the king that was against the English rule in Egypt.

                                                  Just a clarification: It’s the military vs. ISIS in north Sinai at the border area, not a civil war and not in the whole of Sinai.

                                                Americans have no reason to even protest in light of what injustice is happening around the world.

                                                America shouts "Area 51!", "Black lives matter", "White power!"

All rotting away in terrible conditions. Sisi is on another level in being cruel and he knows he can get away with it cause trump backs authoritarian regimes. Under Obama he would never have dared to do this.
