The events unfolding in Egypt, which first began with the outbreak of the rebellion in 2011, are very important in terms of its social and political impact. Particularly important is not the events themselves , but the dynamics and perspectives that have been developed through them both at national and regional level.
First, it is now clear that the social crisis of 2011 was not a revolution that brought systemic changes in the political scene in Egypt, but rather a revolt cohesion and political objectives and ideological limited. However, the second and more massive , the revolt of the summer of 2013 , which also led to the fall of President Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood , is the sign of an important fact: Egyptian society is now at a point stop historical cycle in which it was politicized by policies imposed from above. It is a process of re - politicization and slowly realize their rights and power, and thus the rejection of the masses to accept the government of the Muslim Brotherhood does not meet their requirements.
However, this process is not intended to be short or easy, and bring the Egyptian elite - including the army , for the moment - before the challenges and dilemmas concerning the transformation of its internal and external policies. And the case is such that the democratic election of the Muslim Brotherhood , actually reflects the political culture of the masses of Egypt is heavily weighted towards a different direction in the conduct of monetary policy , even if the same masses have become against the government when he failed to fulfill its promises. This is reflected by the fact that the army will have to fight for a more democratic political system and a very different more assertive foreign policy of the current situation facing the traditional foreign policy of the army. This is because the army should take into account the anti-American and anti-Israeli perceptions, among others, public opinion.
In this context, issues such as the Israeli- Turkish relations, the Palestinian issue, the future of the Sinai Peninsula and terrorism in North Africa , the question of the delimitation of national EEZs in Euro- Mediterranean relations southeastern Turkey - Egypt , and management of regional Shiite influence and the Arab Spring in general, are in a state of fluidity and uncertainty. As such , the results of many of these outstanding issues will largely depend on developments in Egypt. At the same time , it shows the importance and centrality of Egypt in the events in the Middle East and North (MENA) Africa , stressing that the MENA region is not static - Orientalism as would - but a great dynamic that can play a decisive role in regional and international political changes and the balance of power.
