The Egyptian People democratically elected Mohammed Morsi to be their president.  A year later, they decided they don't like him, and overthrow him. How can any other country make peace or cooperation and business pacts with an entity that can overthrow their governments so quickly? If elected in a democratic nature, then shouldn't Morsey have been ousted in a proper democratic way as well, like impeachment or brought to a legal trial?

Tamar discusses the turbulant events in Egypt with I.Q. Al Rassooli, an expert on Islam, and Islamic thinking.

Afterwards, weekly guest, Shifra Hoffman, talks about the vote that took place in the Knesset approving a new Haredi draft law.  Who is right about obligatory army service?  A debate ensues.

Political Editor of The Middle East Magazine, Adel Darwish, speaks with Tamar about Egypt, and where it needs to head now to get back on track, after its military coup.
He lived in Egypt for 5 years and worked in the U.S. embassy one block away from Tahrir square. Aaron Braunstein, Director of the Jewish Covenant Alliance, and a former U.S. Foreign Service Officer,  joins Tamar and speaks about the Obama administration's blunders, and the Muslim Brotherhood's reckless governing.  An eye opening show!
