Fears for the integrity of Egypt's legal system deepened on Monday after 529 supporters of the ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi were sentenced to death for the murder of a single policeman, in a mass trial that lasted less than two days.How reassuring! Compare the gross inefficiency of the Muslim Brotherhood, where it apparently takes 529 people to kill one person! Here we see the improvements wrought by the coup against Morsi. Now one man can arrange the deaths of 529! One can only marvel at the speed with which Justice - so blind and impartial! - is meted out! There are no hold ups or backlogs or painful delays in this chap's court!
And clearly, the fact that 529 people can be proven guilty so very quickly proves beyond a doubt that we were right to endorse and embrace the coup! So many venal and wicked people, so swiftly brought to justice.
P.S. Irony. It saddens me that I probably have to say that.
