Egypt: Mass Protests After Constitution Draft Approved
Arutz Sheva ^ | 30/11/12 | Elad Benari

Posted on 12/01/2012 2:59:12 PM PST by Eleutheria5

An Egyptian panel rushed through a draft constitution seen as undermining basic freedoms on Friday, resulting in mass protests in Cairo.

AFP reported that tens of thousands of protesters rallied as the opposition piled pressure on President Mohammed Morsi.

"Down with the constitutional assembly," vast crowds armed with megaphones chanted as they filed into Tahrir Square, the epicenter of the uprising that overthrew Hosni Mubarak in early 2011.

Banners condemned "dictatorial Morsi" while protesters shouted "down with the rule of the Guide," a reference to the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, through whose ranks Morsi rose before becoming president.

The marches, led by opposition figures, set off from several Cairo districts early in the day to join the protesters in the square.

The Islamist-dominated assembly, tasked with drafting a new charter to replace the one suspended after Mubarak's ouster, approved the draft early on Friday after an almost 24 hour-long session boycotted by liberals and Christians.

The panel's head, Hossam el-Ghiriani, said a delegation from the Constituent Assembly would visit Morsi on Saturday to present him the draft constitution. Morsi is expected to call for a referendum within two weeks.

Rights activists say the charter undermines freedoms of women and religious minorities while the opposition says it was rushed through to force an early referendum.

Of course. What else did they expect but a bill of non-rights?

Obama says he'll get right on top of this after the Hawaiian Christmas vacation.
Hillary probably back at the wine tasting in Australia.

I truly loathe every Obama voter.

He intends to wreak more death and destruction than we have ever seen in our lives.

Keep praying.

I wonder if any of them are having second thoughts about overthrowing Hosni Mubarak?

As we are about to find out, “be careful what you ask for...”

I went pick up a bag of cat food from my wife's cousin, our veterinarian, yesterday and we were talking about that.
He's as conservative as I am.
Like he said, his mind just can't fathom the stupidity and ignorance running rampant in the country.
Called it the slow death of common sense and self reliance.
He's 59 and wants to retire at 65, I told him to retire now and try to have a little fun while he can, things won't get better soon.
That's when I realized I'm going to be 66 this month and will be 70 when the bum is out of office, that depressed the heck out of me, LOL.
I really didn't think I would be this worried about the country and everything at this stage of the game.
Happened a lot faster than I would have ever imagined.

I don't think so , they will just start killing off those who oppose them just like Hamas does in Gaza.


Isa 19:1 The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.

Isa 19:2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

Isa 19:3 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.

Isa 19:4 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts.


Isa 19:5 And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up.


Egypt is being plunged into a nightmare scenario , war and serious famine coming their way . Their water is drying up too as lots of foreigners bought land in Ethiopia and they are building a huge dam that will cut off lots of water from flowing into Egypt .

The Egyptians could not even feed themselves before under Mubarak , going to be much much worse now .

Plenty of Copts right here in the US foolishly supported the removal of Mubarak too.

You gave him excellent advice. I hope he heeds it.
You and I are on the same page, but I hadn’t thought that far ahead. Dang you, Cajun! LOL. I continue to hope and pray that the Marxist’s term will somehow be cut short! Real short.

“Coup d’etat coming soon along with the slaughter of the Muslim Brotherhood."

We can hope, but I don't think so. Morsi has replace the top leadership in the military and Obama is sending more US aid and IMF loans to prop Egypt up. I wouldn't be surprised if there is not even more assistance that we don't know about. Obama is helping the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists take over in the Middle East where ever he can.

Nothing specific I know of — but I don’t have international news at home. Other than Egypt appears to be circling the drain.

Not happening. Secular elements (who the administration in DC pretended to side with back in January 2011) will be squashed by Hamas coming in from the Sinai, just like how the secular Iranians protesting against the Ayatollah’s ecclesiocracy were crushed by the Revolutionary Guard when the current DC administration turned their backs on them. There will be lots more Neda Agha Soltans with nobody to avenge them.

The coup is coming from the rank and file. When that happens it really doesn’t matter who the general in charge is. History is loaded with such scenarios. The sheer numbers of the rank and file usually overwhelm and destroy tyrannical minorities when they’ve had enough. I strongly believe Obama is going to have himself a nasty little surprise here that is going to get him in deep trouble.

Morsi is just following the Food Stamp President’s lead. FSP issues Executive Orders to bypass the Legislature and Judiciary. Morsi issues decrees to bypass the Legislature and Judiciary. FSP ignores the Constitution, Morsi rewrites the Constitution to his liking. FSP a Sunni Muslim, Morsi a Sunni Muslim. Each will reek vengeance on those who oppose them.

They will sacrifice enough to look like the muslim brotherhood is losing and obama will then send aid and prop up the "brotherhood"......to promote peace.

The caliphate will not let egypt go.
