Middle East Reaction to Morsi Ouster

The World
Whether you were a fan of former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi or a detractor delighted that he's gone, the troubling fact is that a democratically elected leader of Egypt has been forcibly removed. That Morsi was from an Islamist political party makes it even more complicated. Islamist parties are making inroads across the Middle East and Muslim world from Syria to Turkey to Indonesia. From their vantage point, Morsi's ouster suggests that there may not be room for Islamist parties in democracies. Marco Werman discusses regional reaction to Morsi's removal with Robin Wright, a long time observer of the Arab and Muslim world. Wright's latest book is "Rock the Casbah: Rage and Rebellion Across the Islamic World."
