ABSTRACT
A general failure to lead the Israeli-Palestinian peace process to any positive outcome coupled with Egypt's discomfort at the U.S.-led war against Iraq brought demonstrators onto the streets, as did the harsh effects of the country's economic liberalization program. In total 1,000 members of Jamaa Islamya, including the man convicted of President Anwar Sadat's assassination and the party leadership, were released in response to the parry's renunciation of violence over the past few years. In September 2003 the government took steps to ward off trouble, announcing a hike in bread production and reverting to fixing the dollar at£ E5.
