Re: “Democracy is dead in Egypt,” (The Hill Times, Nov. 30, p. 13). Gwynne Dyer’s bungled article on Egypt is at best a piece fraught with confusion, and at worst a concoction of half-truths. It is unclear where he drew his statistics from on the allegedly imprisoned and murdered Egyptians. But it was refreshing to see that he acknowledges that the state he giddily attacked still has a functioning justice system that continues to act as a bulwark against executive excesses. The same could not have been said had president Mohammed Morsi remained in power.
