The violence in Egypt erupted after President Morsi issued a declaration granting his office wide-ranging powers, and effectively neutralized Egypt’s judicial system, which now can’t challenge the president’s decisions. Hundreds of protesters both for and against Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi are rallying in the streets of Cairo, Egypt. The demonstrations came after the country’s opposition called for a protest against what they called a ‘coup’ by Morsi.

The Egyptian president has issued a constitutional declaration protecting Egypt's constitution-drafting assembly from dissolution, and replacing the prosecutor general. It also rules that none of the executive's decisions can be overturned.
Morsi gave the Constituent Assembly a two month deadline to finish drafting a new constitution, ruling that no authority may dissolve it until the country's defining document is completed.
He further ruled that no authority may dissolve the Shura Council, the upper house of Egypt's parliament.

But didn't everyone but Obama suspect this would happen? The Arab Spring is total BS. It was used by radicals as a means to an end. It has nothing to do with democracy and everything to do with wresting control from moderates and those who work with the west and placing it in the hands of fundamentalists. Just look at what is happening in Turkey. The fundamentalists have wrested control from moderates via democratic means. I guess democracy does work - for a while.

You are right . Egyptians deserve more than what they are getting after Mubarak era . MB's ultimate goal is to establish a Islamic state in Egypt .

They got exactly what they wanted and voted for. They chose the MB to represent them. What else did they expect? This is just like the palestinians electing hamas, then being surprised by Israel's negative reaction. Elections have consequences.

Police fire teargas at protesters in Egypt's Tahrir Square

RT

Police have fired teargas at protesters near Egypt's Tahrir Square, Al Arabiya and Ahram Online report. It comes amid clashes between supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and opponents of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.


In a speech in front of his presidential palace in Cairo on Friday, Morsi told Egyptians that his aim was to "achieve political, social, and economic stability.” He said that he would never use legislation for personal reasons, or to settle scores – and that he wants to ensure the independence of the executive, legislative, and judicial authorities.

“I will never be biased. I will never be against anyone – any Egyptians – because we are all together and we need to give the momentum to the freedom and democracy and the transfer of power. And in order to be able to take care of everything you like, I like to be honest and take care of everything you care about because I like to support what you want to have: stability and safety," he said.

assuming the elections weren't rigged, i agree. they'd be getting what they voted for
(is it fair to assume they really knew about whom they were voting for ?)
ppl in the US still don't really know about the "man" they voted for, twice.

@ UltraMarine --> i agree and am aware the MB seeks far more than "control".
hopefully, the Egyptian ppl who desire better will prevail.

Yay! We gave money to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Now their HQ is being burned.

Quick, find out who will be in power next, so we can give them money to build a HQ that be burned down next.

Maybe we should send them gasoline and tell them to just burn down a building that looks like it could be used as the next HQ.

They must have known. I knew, ATS knew, everyone knew!

Therefore it must be planned and deliberate?

I don't think they knew. If they knew this was going to happen and it was deliberate, they would go ahead and intervene in Syria too and just hand it over to the Muslim Brotherhood. I honestly think that Obama's administration was shocked when the Muslim Brotherhood went ahead and entered the Presidential race, because in the beginning, they claimed that they weren't going to get involved in Egypt's election. Live and learn. That's why the situation in Syria is moving so slow.
