Of Mohamed Morsi in his death: a man to celebrate or loathe?


Mr. Mohamed Morsi, detained former President of Egypt is dead and I am thinking about the existing philosophies about him. Some people argue how Morsi was going to create a theocracy in Egypt. But didn’t Morsi explicitly refute the Wilayat Al Fiqh system that Iran was encouraging him to adopt? Didn’t he openly criticize Tehran’s role in Syria? Can anyone really accuse Morsi of being ‘with the US’ and its interests in the troubled middle, as a lot of Leftists openly claim? Didn’t Morsi stand with the people of Gaza? Was he not the one who actually opened the Rafah crossing continuously for the first time in years? How could he have done this if he was everything the Leftists accuse him of? But even if he stood with the oppressed people of Gaza, he didn't seem to come across as being openly anti- US and Israel as many political Centrists seem to want the world to believe. Is the problem with Morsi perhaps belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood? But is the existing that thinking about the Muslim Brotherhood almost entirely based on geopolitical and Islamophobic biases? Is his humiliating death to be celebrated or is it a blow to the outcome of the Egyptian revolution and by extension the Arab spring? Is his death good for Egypt’s political now and future or does in in some way represent the counter revolution which is not only enveloping the region but the world?
