Morsi and Erdogan

Notice how both Morsi and Erdogan follow the same “strategy”: if you can’t convince them, confuse them.

Erdogan focuses on playing with people’s sentiments, while Morsi in yesterday’s protracted speech resorted to a wide-scale cynicism, and at times “wooing”. Both of them don’t offer concrete or convincing arguments.

On the other hand, Morsi and Erdogan use the same intimidating or challenging language. They almost wage a “war” against their “opponents”. Morsi even threatened to “chop fingers” !

At the end, they both deal with the opposition as their enemies, and not as their partners in the country’s political life.
