Egyptian Army Turns Tables on Morsi: 48 Hours to Calm Opposition

Egypt may be on the brink of another temporary military regime or civil war. The army told Morsi to make peace with the opposition within 48 hours or face a military “roadmap.”

Egypt’s defense minister issued Muslim Brotherhood Mohammed Morsi a 48-hour ultimatum on Monday to reach an agreement with the opposition or face a military solution to the violence gripping the country. The ultimatum followed a dictate by the opponents that if Morsi does not quit within 24 hours, they will lead the second rebellion in the country in less than three years.

Defense Minister General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said the security of the country is being threatened following the death toll of at least 16 and the firebomb attacks on the headquarters of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo.

The Brotherhood guards fired at attackers, and at least five people were killed.

Al-Sisi insisted he was not planning another military regime, but he did into detail what he meant by a “roadmap” if Morsi and the opposition cannot reach an agreement, which deems to be highly doubtful.

The anti-government protests that reached a peak on Sunday and Monday are the largest since those that deposed Hosni Mubarak for power and ushered in elections that catapulted the radical Islamic Muslim Brotherhood into power.

Morsi promptly tried to usurp powers that quickly turned his administration into a clone of the Mubarak regime, denying freedom and promoting corruption.

The economy has collapsed and the government is nearly bankrupt, providing all of the fuel for another rebellion. The lack of a single leader to attract the support of Egyptians is an indication that the people prefer anarchy, making it ripe for the military to take over as it did in the interim period between Mubarak’s ouster and Morsi’s election.

Morsi told the London Guardian that if he were to bow to opposition demands and quit, protesters would be back in the street within a “week or a month.”

Given the gang rapes of foreign journalists that accompanied the protests against Mubarak and that occurred again this week in the growing rebellion against Morsi, and given the  breakdown of law and order and the Muslim war against the Christian Coptic sect, ultimatums and anarchy are the rule of the day in Egypt.

  5. The burden against Egypt.

    Behold, the Lord rides on a swift cloud,
    And will come into Egypt;.
    The idols of Egypt will totter at His presence,
    And the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst.

    2 “I will set Egyptians against Egyptians;.
    Everyone will fight against his brother,
    And everyone against his neighbor,
    City against city, kingdom against kingdom.
    3 The spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst;.
    I will destroy their counsel,
    And they will consult the idols and the charmers,
    The mediums and the sorcerers.
    4 And the Egyptians I will give.
    Into the hand of a cruel master,
    And a fierce king will rule over them,”.
    Says the Lord, the Lord of hosts.

    5 The waters will fail from the sea,
    And the river will be wasted and dried up.
    6 The rivers will turn foul;.
    The brooks of defense will be emptied and dried up;.
    The reeds and rushes will wither.
    7 The papyrus reeds by the River,[a] by the mouth of the River,
    And everything sown by the River,
    Will wither, be driven away, and be no more.
    8 The fishermen also will mourn;.
    All those will lament who cast hooks into the River,
    And they will languish who spread nets on the waters.
    9 Moreover those who work in fine flax.
    And those who weave fine fabric will be ashamed;.
    10 And its foundations will be broken.
    All who make wages will be troubled of soul.

    11 Surely the princes of Zoan are fools;.
    Pharaoh’s wise counselors give foolish counsel.
    How do you say to Pharaoh, “I am the son of the wise,
    The son of ancient kings?”.
    12 Where are they?
    Where are your wise men?
    Let them tell you now,
    And let them know what the Lord of hosts has purposed against Egypt.
    13 The princes of Zoan have become fools;.
    The princes of Noph[b] are deceived;.
    They have also deluded Egypt,
    Those who are the mainstay of its tribes.
    14 The Lord has mingled a perverse spirit in her midst;.
    And they have caused Egypt to err in all her work,
    As a drunken man staggers in his vomit.
    15 Neither will there be any work for Egypt,
    Which the head or tail,
    Palm branch or bulrush, may do.[c].

    16 In that day Egypt will be like women, and will be afraid and fear because of the waving of the hand of the Lord of hosts, which He waves over it. 17 And the land of Judah will be a terror to Egypt; everyone who makes mention of it will be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the Lord of hosts which He has determined against it.

    The burden against Egypt.

    Could be right on Jack. God Bless:

  7. Dave Scott says:

    Is it morally acceptable for America to be giving advanced weapons to such an unstable regime?

  8. Please get rid of the Muslem Brotherhood! Shalom
