There was a reason one of Morsi's first actions was a purge of Egypt's military leadership. They were the only real force that stood in his way. Egypt's armed forces still are the defacto power in Egypt, even with the sacking of military leaders by Morsi. I think Morsi has over-reached on his power grab, look for the General's to respond if chaos starts to happen. Seems Egypt just traded one dictator for another dictator. So much for democracy there.............

Will Mursi's Egypt become a new Iran?

Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi’s recent decisions were seen by critics as an attempt to convert Egypt into an Islamic single-party state, but analysts downplay those fears citing Egypt’s moderate nature and its cultural diversity.

The lack of media coverage regarding the explosion in Rafah is astronomical. I wrote a small report about it, but to be honest, there is very little information I can find:

Explosion partially destroys intelligence building in Rafah, Egypt

An explosion has partially destroyed an intelligence building in the city of Rafah, Egypt. The explosion occurred just before midnight local time in Rafah. Witnesses report a large plume of smoke rising from the location.

In the past 24 hours there have been 2 explosions/attacks in 2 countries to which the international media has entirely ignored. I am absolutely astonished at the lack of coverage for the explosions in Rafah Egypt and in Syria. It's almost as if they never happened.

Thanks for keeping on top of things, your work is appreciated
by me if no one else.
I wish i could keep up with them as they are posted, but
health is not agreeing with me the past few days, so
when i am up and feeling good i read all the thread to
get caught up, then usually its time to call it quits for
a while and go lay down.
Your efforts are appreciated. The things going on
in the middle east right now are very important, and
could change the world as we know it if things spark out
of control, (which sadly i think they will soon.).

Sorry. I have been busy with researching another matter today.

An interesting contrast between what American "news" media is saying and what Middle Eastern Media is saying in regards to the meeting Morsi had with his judges today. The contrast is so much so, it makes it hard to tell which one is telling the truth:

NBC News: Egypt's Morsi, top judges compromise to defuse soaring tensions over decree

Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and top Egyptian judges on Monday moved to defuse a crisis in the country, with both side backing down from a battle over Morsi’s sweeping self-appointed powers.

Coming out of emergency meetings in Cairo, Morsi issued a statement in which he agreed that only his decisions related to "sovereign" matters would be protected from judicial review, his spokesman said, indicating he had accepted a *compromise* proposed by the judiciary members.

Al Jaseera: Egypt's Morsi stands by decree

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has told the country's senior judges that he did not infringe on their authority when he seized near absolute powers.

The *uncompromising* stance came during Monday's meeting between Morsi and members of the Supreme Judiciary Council in a bid to resolve a four-day crisis that has plunged the country into a new round of turmoil with clashes between the two sides that have left one protester dead and hundreds wounded.

Compromise or not? That's about as sharp of a contrast from truth as you can get. I call this a fail for both agencies.
