Dr. Pipes

On June 30 2013 millions of Egyptians (The Egyptian Armed forces estimated that the number was 14M and the NYT reporters in Egypt claimed that the number was only 2M and I have seen estimates as high as 30M) took to the streets and here is a video of the protesters in Midan el-Tahrir and you judge for yourself

There were many reasons for such mass protests and on top of the list would be the economy, the total disregard of the MB for the rule of law. Morsi wanted his rulings and decisions to be final, binding and cannot be appealed (this is what Islamic law and the caliphate are all about)

But the ultimate demand of the millions of protestors was: يسقط حكم المرشد or down with the Murshid governing (Egypt)

The word المرشد means he who guides and he is the top leader of the MB and he is unelected but he is the one who pulls all the strings and tells Morsi what to do and say and his name is Mohamed Badie and he is in jail now

Egyptians also realized that the MB are back to their old tricks of violence and terrorism and indeed the next few weeks after the uprising members of the terrorist group the MB started killing members of the armed forces and the police in cold blood. They looted a museum and inflicted serious damage on the Islamic Museum in Cairo

On August 15 2013 the Copts of Egypt were attacked and their Churches and businesses were looted and torched and the war of the MB against the Copts started and even Nuns were paraded in the streets and a mini Caliphate was declared in Delga, Minya and a monastery was converted into a mosque

And this was more evidence that the MB is a terrorist group that was being supported by the US and the ambassador to Egypt

The question posed by our so called free media was: Is the June 30 2013 a coup or a popular uprising and how could an elected president be forced out of office

Now compare this with Iraq: Yes Morsi was elected but so was Maliki of Iraq and Morsi believed that it is fine to regard 60% of the population of Egypt (women and the Copts) as second class citizens compare this with Maliki who seems to have had no difficulty with having a Kurdish president of Iraq and a Sunni speaker of the House (it is the US that created this Iraqi constitution) . And yes Malki has no regard for 38% of the population that is Sunni Muslim and compare this with Morsi and his total disregard for Christians and women and liberals and Shia

Now we are told by our free press and by our government that the terrorists of ISIS have a case because Sunnis are no longer treated as equals and that Maliki should be blamed and he should resign

Also compare the fact that it was ordinary Egyptians that protesed and not terrorists led by ISIS as in the case of Iraq

Again our so called free press is no longer credible
