COUP D'ÉTAT

Egyptian Army to Morsi: You’re No Longer the President

Military suspends constitution, install caretaker government; Egyptian army deployed.
It feels and looks like a July 4th party on the streets of Cairo, as millions are celebrating with fireworks and lasers the ouster of the Muslim Brothers' president.

It feels and looks like a July 4th party on the streets of Cairo, as millions are celebrating with fireworks and lasers the ouster of the Muslim Brothers' president.

Al Ahram reports that a source close to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said that the Egyptian Army informed Morsi at 7 pm on Wednesday, that he is no longer the president of Egypt.

The Egyptian Army is carrying out a “full military coup” and the army has placed a travel ban on the country’s embattled President Mohamed Morsi, officials told the AP.

The coup came at the end of the 48 hours Egypt’s army gave Morsi to respond to the demands of protesters who have filled the country’s streets in recent days.

The streets of Cairo were jammed again on Wednesday, with competing pro- and anti-Morsi rallies.

In a statement posted on the Egyptian Presidency Facebook page, Essam El-Haddad, Egypt’s national security adviser called the on-going situation “a full military coup,” and warned that it will only lead to more violence.

“Today only one thing matters. In this day and age no military coup can succeed in the face of sizeable popular force without considerable bloodshed. Who among you is ready to shoulder that blame?” he wrote.

Gen. Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi said the military was fulfilling its “historic responsibility” by ousting Morsi, who was elected only a year ago. Morsi failed to meet the people’s expectations, most notably on economic issues, and the crowds took him down. Now these same crowds erupted victoriously as the announcement was made.

Ahead of the statement, troops moved into key positions around the capital and surrounded a demonstration by Morsi’s supporters in a Cairo suburb. Citing an unnamed presidential source, the state-run newspaper Al-Ahram reported that “the General Command of the Armed Forces told President Morsi around 7 PM (1 PM) that he is no longer a president for the republic.”

Morsi offered to form an interim coalition government “that would manage the upcoming parliamentary electoral process, and the formation of an independent committee for constitutional amendments to submit to the upcoming parliament,” he said in a posting on his Facebook page. He noted that hundreds of thousands of supporters and protesters had packed plazas around the country, and he urged that his countrymen be allowed to express their opinions through the ballot box.

But as night fell Wednesday, troops surrounded a pro-Morsi demonstration at a Cairo mosque and took control of a key bridge across the Nile River. Gehad El-Haddad, a spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood, reported via Twitter that tanks were on the streets.

  3. Only about 160 years ago man was still using sailing ships to cross the oceans and few wanted to as it was dangerous to do so. Today were planing space tourism. Only 107 years ago did we even start to learn to fly and it was not until the 1930's that decent commercial air travel came about. Man has in house pluming, air conditioning, heating, automatic cloths washing, cell phones. All things that came about within the last 100-120 years and most of those came about from the 1940's to the present. The Bible warned that in the days before the tribulation period starts we would see some things happen. 1) Israel would become a nation again in one day. That happened on May 14, 1948. 2) People would travel to and fro. That as I wrote above has only been happening in relative safety for about 80 years, give or take. 3) Knowledge shall increase. All the inventions I mentioned above from the 30's until today have changed the world significantly and computer capability has changed everything in big ways from about 1970 until today. Now we see wars and rumors of wars in various places world wide along with notable earth quakes 5.0 or better and weather that has scientists arguing about it’s causes. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  4. We wouldn't be having this problem with Morsi if Obama didn't feel the need to get involved in affairs that don't concern him. Here in the U.S. , we have plenty of problems, an economy with high unemployment, a seventeen trillion dollar deficit, gridlock in Washington and yet with all that and more Obama took it upon himself to go to Egypt and oust Mubarak. In the middle east, you have to base your decisions with a pick your poison attitude. Who will be the least lethal and advance your interests the most. Mubarak was no choir boy. But, he was certainly preferable to Morsi. My main priority in the middle east is always what is best for Israel, that's the country I care about most. To be honest, I don't care that much what happens to the Arabs because of their opposition to Israel. With this in mind, Mubarak was honoring the peace treaty with Israel. In fact, he developed a good relationship with Netanyahu who became Mubarak's second most frequent visitor. Mubarak did not allow terrorist groups to use Egypt as a training ground for terrorist attacks against Israel and he developed a good working relationship with Washington, providing them with useful information that the U.S. wouldn't have gotten on their own. Mubarak even offered to stay until September to help in drafting a constitution for Egypt and then step down. But, Obama would have none of it and demanded Mubarak leave immediately. What was the big rush to put Morsi in power I don't know. Perhaps because he was more antagonistic to Israel. It's not enough to have Morsi step down if he is only going to be replaced with another anarchist. We keep making the same mistake not only in Egypt but the middle east overall. The Arabs definition of democracy is far different than that of Israel or the U.S. That's step number one in understanding the psyche of the Arab mind.

    its not a military coup..its by peaceful protest by the people.

  6. Good luck and God's help to the people of Egypt. May they get both peace and bread.

    July 4th, 1776 was a glorious day in American history. And July 4th, 2013 will be a joyous day in Egyptian history. The self-sacrificing and courageous Egyptian people took their destiny into their own hands. They stood up to the violent and brutal enforcers of the Islamic dictatorship that had taken control of their country. It was their hopes and dreams against the oppression and guns of the Muslim tyranny. The mainly peaceful demonstrations by millions of Egyptians forced the radical, Islamic dictatorship to give up power. Freedom and democracy will be the ultimate victors. Egyptians are going to get their country back.
    We, as Americans, will be celebrating our Independence Day along side of the Egyptians, who will be celebrating theirs.

  9. Democrat Obama austed Mubarak i Egypt, Democrat Carter austed the Shah of Persia in Iran, what a coincidence?, the same mistake it is a shame, sad for the the people in Persia and now Egypt, but at the same time I cogratulate the Egyptians and I hope that Persian will be free from the autocrathic regime.

  10. Also Erdogan must change his behavior or will happen the same like Mursi.

  11. I hope and pray that they have new president who will give freedom to Christian's and Jews alike.
