“May God Have Paralyzed My Hand When I Voted for Morsi”

By Coptic Solidarity

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi’s recent power grab appears to have cost him much popular support.  While this fact is evident in the mass protests going on in Egypt, other indicators and anecdotes are equally telling.  For example, during a talk show on El Balad TV, an Egyptian Muslim woman called in expressing the frustration being felt by the average Egyptian, directing her words to a Muslim Brotherhood leader.  In her words:

 

You people [Muslim Brotherhood] must give people and their ideas some room, you can’t always get angry and fight—it’s unacceptable…. Come on you guys, what’s the deal? We have come to hate the world. I swear to God, if there is an empty mountain for me to live in, I would take my children and go there! You’ve made us hate our lives! Let me tell you something: I voted for Morsi. May God have paralyzed my hand! May a car have run me over when I went to the voting booth!
