“Mursi today usurped all state powers and appointed himself Egypt’s new pharaoh."

While everyone is focusing on Egypt's new President as the key negotiator for maintaining a ceasefire agreement between Israel and Gaza, Egypt is suffering from protests of their own as Mursi makes "revolutionary" announcements regarding the country and their new constitution....that may end up leaving the country divided itself!

"Reactions to Egypt’s new decrees include Mursi branded as ‘Pharaoh’"

Here are some of Mursi's decrees...

“The president can issue any decision or measure to protect the revolution,” according to a decree read out on television by presidential spokesman Yasser Ali.

“The constitutional declarations, decisions and laws issued by the president are final and not subject to appeal.”

Mursi also sacked prosecutor general Abdel Meguid Mahmud, whom he failed to oust last month, appointing Talaat Ibrahim Abdallah to replace him, who was immediately sworn in on Thursday night.

Here are some of the reactions...

Nobel laureate and former U.N. atomic energy agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei lashed out at the declaration, which effectively puts the president above judicial oversight.

“Mursi today usurped all state powers and appointed himself Egypt’s new pharaoh. A major blow to the revolution that could have dire consequences,” ElBaradei wrote on his Twitter account.

“The revolution will not accept a new dictator in Egypt,” said leftist former candidate Hamdeen Sabahi.

“Egypt is looking for solutions and the president driven more problems,” Sabahi added.

Meanwhile Amr Moussa, ex-candidate and former Arab League chief, said: “I fear renewed unrest following Mursi’s decrees.”

Can't wait to see what the entire draft Constitution holds when they finally release it.

Is anyone really surprised? I think a lot of us familiar with the Muslim Brotherhood saw this coming a long time ago.
