Domestically, the Egyptian military is now focused on the threat of jihadi terrorists in the Sinai and continued protests by the Muslim Brotherhood against the July coup. Internal strife shows no immediate signs of abating, and a harsh crackdown by the Egyptian authorities against the Muslim Brotherhood has conspired to create a tense atmosphere.

A court decision to accept the appeal to retry Mubarak could have far-reaching consequences; however, in the near term there were celebrations in the streets as many applauded the decision to impose more stringent punishments on the former president and his cohorts. Morsi is under arrest and is expected to face trial, something which could deepen internal tensions in Egypt still further.
