Morsi Declares State of Emergency in Three Cities [Egypt]
Arutz Sheva ^ | 27/1/13 | Staff

Posted on 01/27/2013 2:18:12 PM PST by Eleutheria5

Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi declared a 30-day state of emergency, Sunday night, in the cities of Port Said, Suez and Ismailiya, in response to violent anti-government demonstrations around the country. The state of emergency includes a curfew...

Morsi said, "The attacks we have been seeing for the last few days are unacceptable actions against Egypt and the revolution, and I will fight the attackers with utmost power and determination."

Menachem Begin writes in Revolt! that the difference between a tyranny and a free country is that a tyrant believes he and his country are one and the same. So to speak ill of or defy the Leader is an act of treason against the nation. In a free country, however, the government is merely a servant of the people of the country, and different regimes of government peaceably exchange power and are interchangeable.

So if Morsi is calling these anti-government demonstrations "actions against Egypt and the revolution," it's no wonder they are become violent. No peaceful transition of power to a new government is possible. He is the state. He is the revolution. Anyone opposing him opposes Egypt.

So the government that Obastard supported isn’t so popular with the people.

This is the Muslim Brotherhood dictator engineered by Obama in action. I wonder if some if the US military support will be used against the Egyptian people?

Good for Egyptians who will not stand for islamo-tyranny...burn the country down and force the members of the military to take a side.

Pretty good. He gets to slip a couple dozen free F-16s and a mess of M1A1 tanks to his camel abusing compadre.

What's not to like?

Morsi came to power due to demonstrations. Now he doesn’t like them any more. :-)

Egypt has negligible amounts of oil. It needs tourism, and it needs Western companies being comfortable about coming in and doing business, neither of which is going to happen under Morsi.

The common people know they have to get rid of Morsi or they will starve. If it means killing off the Islamists, then so much the better.

From the article "Morsi said, "The attacks we have been seeing for the last few days are unacceptable actions against Egypt and the revolution, and I will fight the attackers with utmost power and determination."

It would be a major hoot if the disaffected Muslims all converted to Coptic Christianity and started refusing to speak Arabic. Unlikely. Too much stupid juice in the drinking water. But I can dream.

Is the media covering the failure of Obama’s ME policy? So far he’s made things worse than Jimmy Carter did. Our grandchildren’s grandchildren will be paying for his State Department’s disaster machine.

Oh, no! A counter revolution?

The Arab Spring is nothing but a fraud on the Egyptian people? Who'd have thought it? Certainly not Obongo’s MSM acolytes.

Soccer is the problem. Nobody ever went to war, as happened in Central America, because of a baseball game. These riot started out when 21 soccer hooligans were sentenced to death for killing other soccer hooligans. I’m not saying the trials accurately nailed the killers, but the riots are only about soccer.
And those Christians pulling out of the “reconciliation talks” just because the Muslim Brotherhood refused to accept basic human rights and stop burning down churches with worshipers inside. That’s the problem.
And the increased rates of poverty of the masses while those connected to the Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi seem to be making out like bandits (which they are). The bad economy is the problem.
And the wobbly support of the military.
No, no, these aren’t anti- government riots. These are all local, minor problems. Pres. Obama welcomes the Arab Spring, so much so that he sent them some of our most advanced jet aircraft. These are just protests by lay-abouts and troublemakers.

the MSM are evil sycophants. Last week, Rush replayed clips of a CNN nutcase reporter (I think his name was Nick James?) reporting from Tahnri Square.

Any way, this reporter was desperately trying to find an Egyptian to sing the praises of the Marxist. It made my stomach turn. In the end, the reporter outright lied stating how the people praise Obama for his efforts.

I wonder if there will be any reporting by the MSM of the latest developments from Egypt? I am sure they will be in 100% protect "the One" mode.

Anyone who does not understand the threat posed by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and their radicalized Islamic motivation is not paying attention. This includes the MSM and the State Department; the DoS has been bought and paid off by Saudi Arabia.

I just hope Bibi Netanyahu and the Israelis are smarter than Obongo and his administration. Israel will face the Muslim killers alone because Obongo wants to destroy Israel and the Jews. For that matter, so do a lot of secular Donkey Jews in the United States.

Every day Obama’s Middle East foreign policy becomes clearer:

If Muslim dictators like Bashar al-Assad of Syria and Mohamed Morsi of Egypt unleash murderous rampages against their own citizens, that’s not worth mentioning. In fact, if al-Qaeda terrorists murder four American soldiers and diplomats in one of our Middle East consulates, that’s not a big deal either; ‘’What difference does it make?!’’ shrieked Hillary Clinton.

However, if the democratically elected prime minister of Israel decides to allow houses to be built on Israel’s own land, that’s a cause for Obama’s unmitigated outrage.

the soccer massacre was staged by the goverment, anyone can immediately confirm it by visioning the images.
The tactic of “divide and reign”, to gain support from people in Cairo.
22 innocents sentenced to death is the another act in this script.
The last act is martial law in 3 cities.

Sad thing is, POTUS, the MSM, the bozos who voted for BHO, the EU and the UN, have all forgotten what true democracy means, which is why they ignore what’s going on in Egypt, or urge the government to “restore calm and order” and call on “both sides to exercise restraint”. Cl-EU-lessness in action.

Aw, man! They’re so unreasonable. If they can’t burn down churches with worshipers inside, then all that’s left is soccer riots.
