Egyptians don't want democracy.They are nostalgic for Mubarak regime..so weird !

Military full coup:

My heart felt a tug and sorrow rushed in
As I saw a military coup
in civil attire
overthrew
Morsi-an expression
of Egypt's democratic will
who tried to uphold Egypt's
journey to an egalitarian future
and clean the country from the old regime dregs-
and declared
a road map for stability that
suspended the constitution,
dissolved the parliament
shut down the news channels
and placed the military
as sole protectorate
of Israel interests.



Two Squares:
Tahrir square displays
its colorful fireworks
beneath the sky
Rabaa adawiya square moans
tasting a nightmare
beneath the army siege
do they have the same rights?
I don't think so!

Brotherhood's lesson in Democracy:

When Brotherhood ruled
They let all voices to roar
and shout
But when the opposition acheived their goal
They muted the Brotherhood's voice
and arrested its leaders

Egyptian soldiers in a public street
Egyptian soldiers in a public street
Protestors Against the Morsi’s Ouster
Protestors Against the Morsi’s Ouster

      I live in Morocco but I ve been pursuing the Egyptian events from the beginning of the Revolution.The constitution was agreed upon.Those who quited from the constitution assembly were dozen from 100-member panel .They quited in critical time when Israel attacked Gaza because el Baradei received call from USA to quit to create internal havoc ,So Morsi despite of the internal political conflict acted to stop the Israeli assaults and for the first time in Egyptian history after the Camp David truce,Morsi had put solders in Sinai side to side with the Israel borders.The Camp David dictates that the Egyptian solders must be put 40 kilometers away from borders.This means one thing:A real threat to Israel and he opened Rafa passage with Gaza after Mubarak closed it.Now Rafa is closed and the Syrian thug regime Embassy is opened.Are those people nationalist ?I dont think so.

      Moreover,The quitting from Constitution was after they almost finished its bonds and it wasnt about Sharia law!

      Democracy dictates to go to elections not to go to the army , shut down the proMorsi media,arrested the leaders of brotherhood and killed peaceful protesters .

      James.. so you only believe the biased news sources that you want to believe. If the military is corrupted from Mubarak.. why would they overthrow him ? the truth is that the military recieves billions of dollars from the U.S.

      the truth is the military is reacting to the millions of protesters who wanted freedom from Morsi's ditatorial sweeping changes.. such as no judicial review of his decree's... making up his own constitution.. allowing the Muslim Brotherhood to persecute christians and other minorities.. and so on and on, on .

      You live in Morroco ..how do you know what the reality of the situation is in Egypt? you know only from the biased sources you get your misinformed thoughts from, slanted towards the radical islamist's propaganda .. the same propaganda ..you ..yourself espouse.

      Your friend

      Cutest Cat,

      The funny thing today the Army in a conference justified the attack by saying that the protesters were the first ones who shot them.They exposed some videos from the archive and dead children from Syrian war to deceive the world.Some neutral foreign experts say that they were montaged .

      The action were taken to scare protesters.

      Africans still need to learn !

      Hugs and much love to you too!

      Dearest James,

      I just received a news link about this very same thing in my email box! After I take my 'much needed shower' :D ... I will be reading it. I have you to thank for bringing this tragedy to my attention, for many of us just satisfy ourselves with ignorance. I think we should all know and care and want to change the things that are NOT right! You have a beautiful heart and a powerful voice!

      Hugs and much love to you!

      Cutest Cat,

      I am trying to send them a poem to read in where they sit-in in solidarity with Morsi,The first elected Egyptian president .

      Today,at the dawn, snipers attacked them while they were praying and in an other place where they thought president is under custody a mass massacre took place.Some Egyptians I dont know why cant they get it that it was a military coup.

      Thanks for the comment and concern!

      I hope peace will prevail soon:)

      Hugs and much love to you,

      James

      Sir Colin,

      Thanks for the compliment :)Your words really remind me of Richard Wright from his novel American Hunger:

      I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of hunger for life that gnaws in us all.

      Once,I wrote an article to a magazine but they refused to publish it because it contained some facts that could all of us sent to jail hehehe

      . Ancient Pharaohs would say :Still slaves ! lol

      Have a nice day there!

      Gentle Wolf,

      That's it, I'm nominating you for President! :D ... and you must give all your speeches in the form of poetry!

      I hear your words and I feel the pain... now we just need to get others to care!

      I hope all is well my dear friend,

      Your writing plays out like a movie Sir James. Sadly this movie is for real but as always you breathe passion and intelligence and compassion into 'everything' you write.

      I think you should have been a journalist/correspondant on CBS' 60 Minutes

      lake erie time 12:15pm

      You matter James because you care and that is such a beautiful thing.

      p.s. - I wonder what the ancient Pharoahs would have thought of modern day Egypt?

      Michael,

      I don t know what channels are you USING there.Army are biased to followers of Mubarak Regime.The army institution is still corrupted.No wonder ,for 20 years Mubarak has been feeding them.

      Well,Observers say that while the departure of Morsi is much to be excited about, the way it happened ought to give greater pause.Revolution in the French mould will lead to more of shedding blood and havoc in the whole region.The worst thing is now the Brotherhood will stop believing in Democracy if Morsi was not brought to power.You know the dangerous of that scenario.

      Moreover, You are there just victims of Media.You really dont know what s happening around you there and the world.I give you an example, in news agencies such as CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News, Egypt was at least mentioned. Wolf Blitzer, feverishly covering every aspect of the Zimmerman trial, noted that something historic was happening in Egypt. Additionally, he stated that CNN was monitoring the situation. Apparently CNN pundit Ashleigh Banfield actually tried to at least announce future coverage of the situation in Egypt, but was literally cut off for a commercial break. Nice try Ashleigh.

      The biggest crime of the news agencies is actually influencing what Americans care about. Some might even call that entertainment. A recent chart for Google Trends shows a deep fascination with the Zimmerman trial, and very little interest in Morsi and Egypt.

      James .. Israel does not have anything to do with with the people of Egypt. You tend to mix up the situation in Israel with the situation in Egypt. So... now Islam is the victim. .How can you say that the whole nation of Egypt is with Morsi... when this is a lie .. there were more than triple the people that wanted him out than the pro islamists who want autocratic rule. If war is started it is from radical extremes who want to control, or eliminate the people who only want peace, which the islamists do not want.

      Michael,

      From the beginning of Islam,There are plots and conspiracies against it.

      MartieCoetser,

      They shut down the news channels in attempt to prevent the world from what is going on.They broad-casted only what they want the world to see and this is one of the main features of African military coup .

      James ..obviously you and I will never agree on this.. for you follow Al-jezzera and I believe in rational observations .. Next thing I know you will blame George Bush for this. .. LOL. But to the point I must go . Morsi does not have 10 million behind him. Morsi is the dictator who was elected by a small miniority. Morsi has tried to install Islamic law when obviously the majority does not want . it will destroy the economy. ! It is the economy. Now the brother-hood will resort to violence. The old regime (george bush again) is gone ..James , liberals always blame everything on something else and never address the problem. So lets agree to disagree and pray for the people of Egypt (all of Egypt ) not just the islamists.

      Michael,

      Morsi is not a dictator.Those who have protested against him are the followers of the old regime(Mubarak).From the beginning,they stood a stumbling block in his way,blackmailing ,killing people and closing government institutions.

      Democracy requires to respect the election results and to push the army away from politics.Army was biased to one side at the expense of the majority .The majority wants Islam.They expressed that in elections and when they vote for the new constitution .

      Very interesting, but I am sure we don't know enough to form any significant opinion. Very difficult, actually impossible, to determine the truth in politics. Take care, James :)

      Zubair Ahmed,

      Morsi has payed heavy price for his stand with Gaza.The West countries took that as a threat to Israel and to West interests in the region.At this time, over than 10 Millions are protesting against the coup and ready to sacrifice their lives to get him back in many cities.

    • cleaner3 profile image

      Of course in your opinion America staged this .. wrong. The reason the military took over is because Morsi was becoming a dictator , forcing Islamic rule over the majority of those who only wanted freedom from repression, the same people who hijacked the democratic process when they started to oppress the christians and refuse to listen to the people. If the billions of aid that Obama approved, did nothing to persuade Morsi that he should lighten up on the populace, and not impose islamic rules.. then nothing would have stopped him but the military (which should always be for the entire security of the country). The military had to take over because the economic situation has not improved in Egypt, bad policies from Islamists who only seek to consolidate power and not try to improve the economic situation of the country.

      This is in direct result to the Billion dollar aid which US pumps into the Army in Egypt. Just look into the events that have transpired since Morsi took office and rejected certain tie-in advances from certain Western countries.

      This would not have happened if Morsi had obeyed the puppeteers.
