(salam)

 

 

Fresh presidential and parliamentary elections have been announced in Egypt amid reports that Mohamed Morsi has been told he is no longer in charge of the country. Egypt's state-run Al-Ahram newspaper reported on its website that the army told Mr Mursi at 7pm (6pm  UK time) that he was no longer head of state, quoting a presidential source.

 

The country's leading Muslim and Christian clerics and opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei will shortly unveil the details of a political road map for a short transitional period followed by new national polls, state news agency MENA reported.

 

Sky's Middle East correspondent Sam Kiley, outside Cairo University where supporters of the president have gathered, added: "The military have moved at least have a dozen armoured personnel carriers supported by about two companies of troops, on one side of the university. On the other side there are a number of riot police.

 

"At the moment there is a tense standoff between supporters of President Morsi and the military, with his supporters building barricades, but also standing on the military side of the barricades trying to show a level of solidarity."The army said in an official statement that it was securing the area and denied what it said were reports that it was attacking Mr Morsi's supporters, saying: "The Egyptian army belongs to all Egyptians."

 

Mr Morsi has refused to step down, saying he will protect his democratic "legitimacy" with his life.

I'm sad to see yet another military coup but I'm happy to see Morsi gone.

 

This is the political immaturity of the Muslim world speaking for itself. A hard fought revolution for democracy and basic citizenship freedoms have now been put before a big question mark. Why the army? Why it wasn't the Chairman of the Cairo Barbers Association (CBA) who deposed the president? Yep, power always rules.

 

But Morsi asked for it. He acted like a starved kid who's been let loose on a cauldron of spicy soup....and fell inside. Morsi and his minions didn't know how to sit down and eat the meal. The new found power suddenly went into their heads and Morsi thought of himself the new Leader of the Muslim world who could tell his subjects and those Sunnis from other countries to go and fight the "jihad" in Syria and wherever Shias are to be found.

Congratulations to the family of the martyrs in Syria, Egypt, Iraq and the rest of Muslim world.

A Takfiri president allied with Salafis and backed by Clinton, a president who called Israeli president as a "dear friend" and declared a war on Syria, begged NATO to intervene in a fellow Muslim-Arab country, and demanded a no-fly-zone, supported the dictators in Saudi, Bahrain, Qatar, and put his sectarian hatred on a show in front of the entire world in his visit to Tehran, IS REMOVED. If the news is confirmed, I am going to be glade to see him and his entire Salafi dogs to fall.

 

Sheikh Hassan Shehata and your 3 innocent companions, your blood and martyrdom made an entire Takfiri government to fall!

 

Down with MB, Hamas and the entire Takfiris, from Bangladesh to Syria, from Egypt to Palestine!

 

Syria will be liberated, Iraq will be established as a peaceful country, but you 'Takfiri haters' will suffer and suffer and suffer!

 

NOW GO AND SEEK HELP FROM YOUR ZIONIST MASTERS!

 

Ikhwanis and Salafis: I am sure your Zionist masters were just trying to use you in Libya and Syria, and to inflame Sunni-Shia conflicts in the region, they never have any interest to establish the government of Abubakar or Omar for you anywhere, be it Egypt or Syria, but you were so excited all a sudden where you soon forgot who you were and began to kiss their shoes.

Actually, the ultra-Salafists as represented by the al-Nour party who are backed by Saudi and the Gulf countries were opposed to Mursi this round as they also called for an early re-election after abandoning him; thereafter, the MB who are Qatar-backed found themselves isolated with the secular western-backed (anti-Shariah/Islamist) youth + economically disenchanted masses, Judiciary and the Army working together in one united corner.

 

Lumping together the ultra-Salafists and the MB, even though their interests had converged over the new constitiution and Syrian foreign policy is wrong, they had broken up, and the ultra-Salafists have to be recognized as far more dangerous to Shi'ite interests.

I would suggest the Shias here refrain from expressing joy. MB needed to rule for another few years for it to result in the death of political sunnism. With this coup, the MB will be regarded as heroes in the long run and as a consequence, it will keep political sunnism alive. So this is not to our benefit ...

Democracy can hardly be installed in a few weeks or months, there is a huge power vacuum and generally the military does not let go from these situations, other then that, its quite unpredictable.

^ Because they've taken over so its in his best interest to support them?

 

They could remain neutral and minded their own business. Now if the military prolongs this "transitory" government and reverts to Mubarak-era army-led system then those who supported this coup are doomed to infamy.

HRW Says Almost 100 Women Sexually Assaulted in Cairo

by Naharnet Newsdesk 11 hours agoClose to 100 women have fallen victim to "rampant" sexual attacks in Cairo's Tahrir Square during four days of protests against Egypt's Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, Human Rights Watch said on Wednesday."Mobs sexually assaulted and in some cases raped at least 91 women in Tahrir Square... amid a climate of impunity," HRW, which is based in New York, said in a statement.It cited figures from the Egyptian Operation Anti-Sexual Harassment/Assault, which runs a hotline for victims of sexual assault, showing that there were 46 such attacks against women on Sunday, 17 on Monday and 23 on Tuesday.Another women's rights group, Nazra for Feminist Studies, reported that there were another five attacks on Friday, said HRW.The watchdog called on Egyptian officials and political leaders "across the spectrum to condemn and take immediate steps to address the horrific levels of sexual violence" in the iconic square."The rampant sexual attacks during the Tahrir Square protests highlight the failure of the government and all political parties to face up to the violence that women in Egypt experience on a daily basis in public spaces," said Joe Stork, HRW's deputy Middle East director."These are serious crimes that are holding women back from participating fully in the public life of Egypt at a critical point in the country's development."Several women required surgical intervention after the attacks, some were "beaten with metal chains, sticks, and chairs, and attacked with knives," HRW said.The government response has been to "downplay the extent of the problem or to seek to address it through legislative reform alone," whereas what is needed is for attackers to be brought to justice, HRW said.Some say the attacks are staged by thugs who are abusing a security vacuum and confident of escaping prosecution.Others say the assaults are organized to scare women off from joining protests and to stain the image of the anti-government demonstrations.

Ultra Salafist al-Nour party leader was there for the army announcement, just shows you that these Takfiris are traitors backstabbing the Ikhwanis, siding with the western-backed army and secularists - they are going to cooperate with the millitary installed transition government for a shot at the future cake-sharing.

 

Mursi has to regret his one time anti-Iranian alliance with them.

That is even better, I wish and hope Obama and Israeli president also come forward to celebrate... that will make my day!

 

Let these loser Ikhwanists to suffer as they were the real sectarian cowards...as they forgot the difference between right & wrong and began to hope that pleasing Zionists, their Takfiri bros will prolong their power and safeguard their seats. That never happened! As the Zionists and their agents will only use these forces temporarily and they never recognize any long-term friendship or mutual respect.

 

 

I would suggest the Shias here refrain from expressing joy. MB needed to rule for another few years for it to result in the death of political sunnism.

There is no such thing as heroes or losers... losers like Salafis/Ikhwanis will come and go now in every few months.... MB and Sunni Islamists proven themselves and exposed themselves in one year as much as other groups might not do it in 10 years...

 

From their domestic politics and dealings, to their sectarian nature, to a corrupt and Zionist-pleasing-style foreign policy, to getting paranoid on everything, to going after weak forces and instead submitting to military/financial powers such as Israel and the west... even one year was too much for them...

 

No one will miss them, everyone knows them now... in Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and even nowadays in Libya and Tunisia people will not welcome the forces of Takfiris, terrorists and the paid agents of the Zionists.

 

Mubarak or Bin Ali were clear, they were the puppet-installed dictators, and no one expected anything from them... they had enough courage to declare loyalty to their masters publicly!

Since when does that happen. 

 

No. Let me clarify. What I mean is that unless they (the Coptic Pope, Sheikh of Al-Azhar and leading opposition figures like El-Baradie) were forced to join the head of the army and sit behind him while he announced Morsi's ouster, it was very much possible for all three main groups to not allow themselves to get directly and publicly involved in today's fiasco.

But I suppose everyone in Egypt apart from the party in power was in favour of the coup...or so it seems.

The best thing that can come out of this whole affair is if the Ikhwan (MB) & the Salafis proceed to an all out war on each other.

 

Anything other then that will just mean same story, different face.

 

If i was part of the MB, i would feel the biggest stab came from the Nur gang, they was supposed to stick with them till the end. After all Mursi stayed silent in the face of all their barbaric statements and calls for Jihad in Syria, but they left him in the blinking of an eye lol

 

Looks like King Abdullah of Saudi is really happy, so much for Mursi flying straight to the Kingdom when he became leader lol

Al Arabiya

Saudi King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz congratulated the newly-appointed Egyptian interim President, Adly Mansour, on Wednesday.

“In my own name and on behalf of the people of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, I congratulate you on assuming the leadership of Egypt at this critical point of its history,” said the king in a cable carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA). “By doing so, I appeal to Allah Almighty to help you to shoulder the responsibility laid on your shoulder to achieve the hopes of our sisterly people of the Arab Republic of Egypt.”

King Abdullah also praised the armed forces, saying: “At the same time, we strongly shake hands with the men of all the armed forces, represented by General Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, who managed to save Egypt at this critical moment from a dark tunnel God only could apprehend its dimensions and repercussions, but the wisdom and moderation came out of those men to preserve the rights of all parties in the political process.”

“Please accept our greetings to you and deep respect to our brothers in Egypt and its people, wishing Egypt steady stability and security.”

Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates is following with satisfaction the developments in Egypt, UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan said on Wednesday.

He said that his country is confident that the Egyptian people will be able to overcome the current difficult situation “to reach a safe and prosperous future,” the Emirates News Agency (WAM) reported on Wednesday.

The UAE foreign minister also said that the Egyptian army proved that it was a “strong shield” and “protector,” which – he added – guarantees the country embraced all components of the people.

He also said that the UAE will continue to strengthen its bilateral relations with Egypt.

Jordan also commented on the latest developments in Egypt, Al Arabiya correspondent reported. The kingdom said it respected the wishes of the Egyptian people as well as the role of the armed forces.

The Egyptian army chief, Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, ousted Islamist President Mohammad Mursi on Wednesday and announced the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court caretaker leader.

It must bring back memories of when Assad of Syria's father wiped out the Brotherhood...... they must be wondering if the military is going to join the fray against them and if any of them will make it to the next Ramathan.

Imagine for one moment if mobs of women were beating up men with chains, sticks and chairs, attacking them with knives and raping them like dogs. The entire world would finally do something to stop it. When will mothers, wives, daughters and women of the world be loved, respected and treated as equals? Is this what they get for giving life to men? Good men and women of this world must stand up for righteousness and honor of all. And finally do whatever it takes to stop this horrendous, outrageous, on-going torture of girls and women.

They watch trash on Egyptian tv and being the morons they are think it is ok to go molest random women. You know the typical arab guy in places like Egypt....they think if a girl is in the room it must be to see him even if she never set eyes on him before.

^Typical Arab guys, if a woman looks at them they think she automatically likes them.. we have enough of them Iraqi guys roaming around. When a woman walks by they quickly turn up the music and start hollering at her.

 

 

 

 

I heard from Aljazeera that the Egyptian military has banned them from broadcasting, is that true or are they just spewing up lies like the  usual?

I said something along those lines and a arab threatened to ban me. The truth is cruel.

I hope the army makes Egypt into a totalitarian state, democracy has made things worse then they were before.
