Turkey and United States condemn death sentences for former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi and 105 of his Muslim Brotherhood henchmen

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has slammed Egypt for sentencing the ousted president to death, saying the country was returning to the “old Egypt.”

“Old Egypt” as in before Islam? Sounds like a plan! Erdogan buddy, Barack Hussein Obama, also is “deeply concerned” about an Egyptian court decision to seek the death penalty for former President Mohamed Morsi, a State Department official said on Sunday.

It was just a year ago, before he was elected president by an overwhelming majority of the Egyptian people, that Abdel Fattah el-Sisi vowed to finish off the Muslim Brotherhood once and for all. Looks like he’s making good on his promise.
