    Quote Originally Posted by MMC View Post
    From Washington, President Barack Obama called Morsi to express "deep concern" about the deaths and injuries of protesters in Egypt, according to a White House statement.

    The statement Thursday night said that Obama told Morsi that he and other political leaders in Egypt must make clear to their supporters that violence is unacceptable. Obama welcomed Morsi's call for a dialogue with opposition leaders in Egypt but stressed that such a dialogue should occur without preconditions. The United States also has urged opposition leaders to join in talks without preconditions.

    Earlier Thursday, Morsi's troubles grew when another of his advisers quit to protest his handling of the crisis, raising to seven the number of those in his 17-person inner circle who have abandoned him. The only Christian in a group of four presidential assistants has also quit.

    Violence persisted into the night, with a group of protesters attacking the Cairo headquarters of Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood, ransacking the ground floor. Another group of protesters attacked the Brotherhood's offices in the Cairo district of Maadi. Outside the president's house in his hometown of Zagazig, 50 miles north of Cairo, police fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of protesters, security officials said.

    During his speech, Morsi repeated earlier assertions that a conspiracy against the state was behind his move to assume near unrestricted powers, but he did not reveal any details of the plot.

    "We raise Egypt's flag but they raise the Brotherhood flag. This is the difference," Cairo protester Magdi Farag said as he held the tri-colored national flag stained with blood from his friend's injury in the clashes.....snip~

    A minority of Egyptians Sharon? Can you explain away why they are attacking the MB all over the place in Egypt if it is only 10% of the Population?


    Do you think about which Flag they Raise as oppose to the one the MB raises.....Says a Whole Lot? Doesn't It!
    Perhaps you should be talking with Egyptians in Egypt and let them tell you what is going on. I am.

    Read the new Constitution.. Its secular. Egypt can't hang in limbo and lose the revolution because a minority are emotional and can't read.

    Not true.

    Advocates like Human Rights Watch have spoken out against this ambiguous language, noting that it could be implemented in a way that undermines women's rights. It is also worth mentioning that only four women participated in the 85-strong constitutional assembly body that ultimately ratified the draft constitution.

    With respect to religious freedom, the draft constitution says, "The State shall guarantee the freedom to practice religious rites and to establish places of worship for the divine religions [also translated as "monotheistic religions"], as regulated by law." This is a step back from the 1971 constitution, which did not restrict religious freedom. Some fear that this article will further imperil already embattled religious minorities, such as as Egypt's Baha'is.

    The draft constitution's implications for freedom of speech are also worrisome. Of particular concern to journalists are provisions that ban blasphemy and certain forms of "insult"; articles that seem to give the government a heavy hand in editorial control; and potential, if still ambiguous, limitations on press freedom in accordance with the "requirements of national security" and "the basic principles of the State and society," as explained in Article 48.

    What?

    Yesterday, protests rocked the country, and a crowd of some 100,000 people staged a so-called "last warning" demonstration near the presidential palace against President Morsi's heavy-handed tactics. In addition, hundreds of journalists marched on Tahrir and at least a dozen of the country's independent newspapers did not publish to protest against Morsi's "dictatorship."

    Are you making stuff up? Tell us, does the leader of the opposition self identify as a Marxist Christian Zionist?

    No that was John Garang in Sudan..

    Egypt's literacy rate is only about 61% of the population.

    Article 33 grants equal rights to ALL Egyptians without regard to gender..

    Article 78 forbides slavery, sex trafficking and forced employment.

    The press can't insult any of the patriarchs.. Do you know what that means for Muslims, Christians and Jews?

    The liberals and secular types got in a snit and walked out.. Now they are pissed that they didn't write it even though its secular in nature.. which you would know by now if you'd read it instead of making snarky insults.

    Brotherhood activists in several cities passed out fliers calling for people to come out and "support Islamic law." A number of Muslim clerics in Friday sermons in the southern city of Assiut called the president's opponents "enemies of God and Islam." The week-old crisis has already seen clashes between the two camps that left two dead and hundreds injured. On Friday, Morsi opponents and supporters rained stones and firebombs on each other in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria and the southern city of Luxor. The Islamist-led assembly that worked on the draft for months passed it in a rushed, 16-hour session that lasted until sunrise Friday.

    The vote was abruptly moved up to pass the draft before Egypt's Constitutional Court rules on Sunday whether to dissolve the assembly. Liberal, secular and Christian members and secular members had already quit the council to protest what they call Islamists' hijacking of the process. The draft is to be sent to Morsi on Saturday to decide on a date for a referendum, possibly in mid-December. The draft has a distinctive Islamic bent - enough to worry many that civil liberties could be restricted, though its provisions for enforcing Shariah, or Islamic law, are not as firm as ultraconservatives wished.....snip~

    The draft constitution also contains vague, Islamist-flavored language that its opponents say could be used to whittle away human rights and stifle criticism.

    For example, it forbids blasphemy and "insults to any person", does not explicitly uphold women's rights and demands respect for "religion, traditions and family values".

    The draft injects new Islamic references into Egypt's system of government but retains the previous constitution's reference to "the principles of sharia" as the main source of legislation.

    Several independent newspapers said they would not publish on Tuesday in protest. One of the papers also said three private satellite channels would halt broadcasts on Wednesday.....snip~

    The words "Marxist" nor "Zionist" appear in that article. Just admit you invented that he "self identifies as a Marxist Christian Zionist". You made things up about your political opponents, plain and simple. You demonized South Sudan while claiming that Bashir is innocent, and you MADE STUFF UP. Deal with it.
