Egyptian Army Chief Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi took to state television to announce that the head of the country’s constitutional court would take over as president until new elections are held.
“We’ll build an Egyptian society that is strong and stable, that will not exclude anyone…and end the conflict,” Al-Sisi said. He said military leaders had urged Morsi to do more to meet protesters demands, but he did not go far enough to meet a 48 hour ultimatum the country’s military declared on Monday.
“The speech of the president last night, before the 48 hour deadline, did not achieve the goals of the people,” the Army chief said. He said it prompted the militay to act “based on its own national and patriotic duty.”
But also a big story from out of Egypt that has yet to gain traction in the USA – confirms what I have been writing and saying about our president.
I have snatched copies of the images so I can ensure that if the story gets removed I still have the images to share with people.
Obama’s embracing, rooting and supporting of the MB and Morsi tipped his hand and showed his heart. The people of Egypt – those who have led to Morsi’s outster, have no interest in becoming a fundamentalist, Islamist state. They want democracy, a republic, tolerance and appreciation of diversity as well as transparency of the government.
