Alan Beuret: Ce qui se joue en Egypte: un combat pour une démocratie légale et légitime

Dans un style dangereusement dictatorial, M. Morsi a placé ses décisions au-dessus de tout recours en justice et s'est octroyé des pouvoirs proches de l'absolu. Affublé du surnom de "Nouveau Pharaon d'Égypte", Morsi s'est vite retrouvé sous le feu croisé de l'opposition, si tant est que l'on puisse la considérer comme une entité cohérente, du pouvoir judiciaire et, bien sûr, de la communauté internationale.

In a 2010 BBC survey, respondents in Egypt, Pakistan, Kenya and Turkey were asked how much they would miss the services of the BBC, CNN International, Voice of America or Al Jazeera. The Egyptian respondents said they would miss the BBC more than Al Jazeera. So of course you would think the British Government would place a high priority on continuing to speak to the world through its revered international broadcaster, the BBC World Service. The same survey found that, of all British institutions (including the government, the armed services, and British foreign aid), it was the BBC (by far) which made respondents think more positively about Britain.
