temporary measures? until all other dictatorial measures are decreed and imposed on the people? inexperienced and inefficient. Unfortunate Egypt.

We, the people of Egypt, support the presidential decree. Mursi, far from being a dictator, is trying to protect the elected entities that, we , the people of Egypt have chosen against the tyranny of the Mubarak-appointed judges of the constitutional court. The false opposition lead by el-Baradei are mainly striving to protect the interests of the corrupt criminals of the Mubarak regime, and to topple the Mursi regime to gain personal interests. They are resorting to violence and killings to spread chaos and are calling on the army to seize power, after all what we have done to be liberated from the grap of the Army.

@ Biostudies
You’re still holding on to that one? Yeah, white girl tries to understand the African American’s perspective. That’s really racist! You’re ridiculous.

Despite your racist accusations, we still have a government with checks and balances. They are called the executive, judicial and legislative branches of government. The foundations are there. While the execution may not be perfect, we at least have ways to challenge, which Mursi has taken away from his judicial branch.

It sounds like the Egyptians finally realized that the Muslim Brotherhood will not give them the democracy they were searching for.

I wonder when the idiots in the US will figure out they voted for the wrong guy and get rig of him. I wonder why he has not come out against that tyrant in Egypt? Probably because they are on the same page.
