Egypt is facing what Algeria faced in the 1990s. Nothing is working. The economy is in despair and a civil war is underway essentially pitting the military in power to Islamist factions. Sister company MEA Risk says the latter could be summarized into two major groups. The first represents the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), which is represented by a wide range of players and militants seeking to disrupt the Sissi regime mostly politically and through civil disobedience. The ongoing confrontations in Egyptian universities between students and the police generally fall under the domain of MB influence. The second group of Islamist militants is much more violent and is part of the global Jihadist movement, essentially linked to either Al Qaeda and more recently to the brutal Islamic State organization (ISIS).
