Pro US Anti Shia Mursi Ousted by a Military coup with full Egyptian Public Support


Egyptian President Mursi Ousted in a Military CoupJNN 04 July 2013 Cairo : A military coup backed by a huge uprising of public anger toppled Egypt’s first elected president tonight.

Anti Shia Muhammad Mursi’s Govt was toppled , who did every thing to please the Zionist in giving Powers to make the Epypt into a Wahabi State , in the Name of Islamization . But the People of Egypt Rejected The Tyrant Mursi and instead Supported and Welcome the Egyptian Army Open Heartedly to cease the Powers from him.

Mohammed Morsi was “under the protection” of the Republican Guard as armoured vehicles poured on to the streets of the capital Cairo.

Egypt’s army was holding oustedPresident Mohamed Morsi at a military facility in Cairo on Thursday and other Muslim Brotherhood leaders were arrested in a crackdown on the movement that won several elections last year.

The United Nations, the United States and other world powers did not condemn Morsi’s removal as a military coup. To do so might trigger sanctions. Army intervention was backed by millions of Egyptians, including liberal leaders and religious figures who expect new elections under a revised set of rules.

In the iconic Tahrir Square, the news was met with the same jubilation that greeted the overthrow of dictator Hosni Mubarak two years previously.

More than 100,000 opponents of the Morsi government danced and cheered as fireworks lit up the evening skies.

Soldiers were carried as heroes into the heart of tens of thousands of protesters-turned-revellers. And those scenes were repeated across Egypt.

A jubilant Mohammed Sawa, 42, said: “This is not a coup. This is the military acting for the people. We have asked this and they have acted.”

General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, head of country’s armed forces, suspended the constitution and appointed the leader of the constitutional court as interim Head of State.

Flanked by religious authorities and politicians, he called for presidential and parliamentary elections, a panel to review the constitution and a national reconciliation committee that would include youth movements.

General al-Sisi insisted that the roadmap had been agreed by a range of political groups.

President Morsi, the elected Muslim Brotherhood leader who was in office for just a year, stayed out of sight – allegedly in the barracks next to the Presidential Palace. The building was surrounded by barbed wire, barriers and troops – though military sources denied that he was under arrest.

Mr Morsi’s opponents have accused him and his Muslim Brotherhood party of pushing Egypt towards a Radical Salafi Wahabi Islamic state.

The constitution was suspended. The constitutional court chief justice, Adli Mansour, will be sworn in to replace Morsi at 10am (0800 GMT).

A technocratic interim government will be formed, along with a panel for national reconciliation. The constitution will be reviewed. And presidential and parliamentary elections arranged.

There was no timetable. Liberal chief negotiator Mohamed ElBaradei, a former UN nuclear agency chief, said the plan would “continue the revolution” of 2011. Many hope they can have more electoral success than last year, when the Brotherhood’s organisation dominated the elections.

Its own ability to fight back democratically may be limited by the arrests of its leaders. They face accusations of inciting violence. Morsi may also face charges. His opponents accused him this week of fomenting “civil war” by defying Sisi’s ultimatum.

The state newspaper said arrest warrants had been issued for 300 Brotherhood members.

They complain about rising crime and economic mismanagement.

The military had given him 48 hours to resolve Egypt’s political crisis.

A night of violence yesterday, which left 23 dead and 200 injured in clashes between the President’s supporters and opponents, was followed by a day of political confusion.

As the 4pm deadline approached, the Egyptian military issued a stark warning.

The army swore to “sacrifice our blood for Egypt and its people to defend them against any terrorist, radical or fool”.

As confusion swept the country, the President refused to step down or negotiate.

Instead, in a defiant TV address, he pledged to protect his “constitutional legitimacy” with his life.

His spokesman said: “It is better for a president, who would otherwise be returning Egypt to the days of dictatorship, from which God and the will of the people has saved us, to die standing like a tree rather than be condemned by history and future generations for throwing away the hopes of Egyptians for establishing a democratic life.”

And a Morsi aide, Assam El-Haddad, issued a chilling warning by insisting: “No military coup can succeed in the face of sizeable popular force without considerable bloodshed.

“There are still people in Egypt who believe in their right to make a ­democratic choice. Hundreds of thousands of them have gathered in support of democracy and the presidency.

“And they will not leave in the face of this attack. To move them, there will have to be violence.”

As the deadline passed, tens of thousands of people, many with their faces adorned with Egypt’s flag, streamed into Tahrir Square.

And after a series of rapes and sex assaults on women, organisers had to seal off a ‘Women Only’ area so they also could join the protest.

There was humour too amidst the anger. One popular placard showed Morsi and his cabinet dressed in nappies, sucking on bottles.

Christians, who have been subjected to increasing numbers of attacks, stood shoulder to shoulder with their countryman.

Muslim Mahmout Samir, 27, said regardless of faith, the majority of people were untied against the increasingly hard-line Salafi Islamic government.

He said: “The Government is for all people, Muslim and Christian. I am a Muslim but what they are doing is wrong.”

Retired army officer Samir Yousef, 65, clutching a cross in his arms, said: “We are all united here, Muslim and Christian.

“Morsi needs to go, we need a moderate government here. He should step down for the good of the country.”

Two years ago the army stood by as the country rose against President Mubarak’s 30 year dictatorship, sealing the end of his regime.

Back then, tanks were mobilised around Tahrir Square and the rest of the country yet did nothing.

Now the army has stepped in to demand Morsi listen to his people. It is a move that doesn’t strike fear into the protesters.

Architect Samir el Shabib, 34, said: “The Army are of the people, they are there with us.

“They have shown they do not want the Muslim Brotherhood in charge.”

As the military’s deadline approached the protest within the square grew with no Army or police to maintain order.

A few miles away, a far smaller demonstration by Muslim Brotherhood supporters demanded that the military respect last year’s elections.

One protestor said: “They are criminals. They have to respect the vote.”

Speakers at the demonstration spoke of laying down their lives for the President.

But their efforts fell on deaf ears as General al-Sisi went ahead with his coup.

As fears grew that chaos could descend to Egypt’s streets again, the Foreign Office advised against all but essential travel to the country except for resorts on the Red Sea in South Sinai.

Prime Minister David Cameron told the Commons: “These are deeply disturbing scenes, the level of violence is appalling.”

The television station of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood was taken off air and its managers arrested hours after Islamist President Mohamed Mursi was overthrown by the armed forces on Wednesday, state news agency MENA reported.

The Egypt25 channel had been broadcasting live coverage of rallies by thousands of pro-Mursi demonstrators in Cairo and around the country, with speeches by leading Brotherhood politicians denouncing the military intervention to oust the elected president.

The Muslim Brotherhood-owned television channel Misr 25 went off air along with several other Islamist-run channels, including the controversial Hafez and Al-Nas, shortly after the military statement announcing the ouster of president Mohamed Morsi.

Police forces went to the Media Production City in Cairo’s 6 October, where the offices and studios of these channels are located, and evacuated them, according to Al-Ahram’s Arabic-language news portal.

The police also arrested some of the personnel working for these channels.

Al Jazeera’s Egyptian broadcast has been taken off the air. Both Reuters and Al Jazeera itself reported that security forces raided Cairo offices and detained at least five staff members.

Karim El-Assiuti has told Reuters his colleagues at the Al Jazeera Mubasher Misr channel were arrested while working at their studio. The station was prevented from broadcasting from a pro-Morsi rally, and a broadcasting crew was detained.

Ayman Mohyeldin, a Foreign Correspondent for NBC News, reported via Twitter that security personnel entered the broadcaster’s offices overlooking Tahrir square looking for Al Jazeera journalists.

  2. Serves the anti-Shia Tyrant right. When will the ‘Valiant Armed Forces’ in Pakistan come out of its ‘slumber” and take a similar step and relieve its Citizens of their present sufferings like (1) Electricity & Gas Load shedding (2) Target Killings of the innocent & several other problems that the people are subject to ? Its in the overall interest of the nation that such ‘selfish’ & ‘self centered’ Politicians be wiped out entirely, their ‘ill gotten gains’ be confiscated & they be given punishment – as was done in Iran & other countries. TO HELL WITH SUCH A ” BOGUS DEMOCRACY” BECAUSE THE CITIZENS ARE ENTIRELY FED-UP WITH IT.
