3. I do not believe this will be successful.

There is confusion as to whether the struggle is against SCAF or against the Ikhwan, which obviously the people support more than the "youth of the square."

4. The movement protesters shown in this video are against both.

I think what they fear most is a SCAF-Ikhwan alliance.

Unfortunately I think you may be correct that this movement, while very visible and vocal, is not exactly representative of the general population.

I find them very inspiring.

5. Well they have to carefully consider the options.

If they totally adopt a strategy of confrontation vis-a-vis Ikhwan, I do not think that would be wise - at this point. Ikhwan is not monolithic by any means. More than anything, the secularists or leftists must build public opinion. One of the best ways would be to totally reject neoliberalism and to organize the workers and farmers and raise their class consciousness.
