It’s Time for the US to Support Democracy, Not Dictatorship, in Egypt

This opinion piece criticizes the United States’ support for the al-Sisi government in Egypt, arguing that it is support for a dictatorship, not a democracy. It cites examples of the authoritarian nature of the current regime while connecting it to the rise of the Islamic State and the continued influence of al-Qaeda in the Middle East. This piece is useful in getting students to consider the United States’ foreign policy in the Middle East and its response to the Arab Uprisings.
