    Embattled Morsi calls out his backers

    Embattled Morsi calls out his backers - Africa - World - The Independent

    The
    Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has called for a mass demonstration in Cairo this week to show support for the embattled President, Mohamed Morsi, who is facing widespread protests over his controversial decree granting him extensive new powers.
    In a statement published on its website, the Brotherhood also called for demonstrations in public squares across the country after early evening prayers today.
    The latest blow to Mr Morsi came yesterday when the Supreme Judicial Council, Egypt's highest body of judges, called the move by the President to grant himself near-absolute power an "unprecedented assault" on the judiciary.
    Through their statement, the judges joined a growing list of leaders and activists from Egypt's political factions, including some Islamists, who have denounced the decree Mr Morsi says is necessary to "protect the revolution". The council's move reflects the anger within the judiciary.

    Mr Morsi has accused pro-Mubarak elements in the judiciary, many of whom were appointed by the former president, of blocking political progress. In the past year, courts have dissolved the lower house of parliament as well as the first panel drafting the constitution, both led by the Muslim Brotherhood.
    Looks like there are problems in paradise.

    The Egyptian people are begining to realize Morsi is fraud, renegging on his campaign promises of hope and change. Hey..who does that remind you of?

    Morsi didn't run on the hope and change campaign that Obama ran on. He ran on the hope and change campaign that he would change Egypt from a secular state into a sharia law-biding, islamic republic.
