A COUP or NOT A COUP that is the
To all my friends who are confused about what is
happening in Egypt!
FIRST Morsi was NOT a democratically elected
president: there was massive rigging. Many poor's votes were purchased with
little money or in-kind trivialities. Extreme mosque leaders poisoned many
people's decisions by convincing them that whoever wouldn't vote for Morsi will
end up in hell! Now how democratic is this, taking advantage of people's
poverty and ignorance?? If you still think this is democracy then on the same
line Mubarak was a fairly elected president and what happened 2 years ago was
NOT revolution but a COUP that was welcomed internationally.
SECOND, Asking Morsi to resign is not against
democratic procedures. None of the revolution's demands were met, Morsi and the
(Muslim Brotherhood) took the country in another direction that mainly
reflected their desire to dominate the state, and did not build a democracy
(freedom), or managed to improve the living standards of Egyptians and provide
their basic needs. Even the people who voted for him ONLY to prevent the other
candidate of the old regimen from winning (because of the fear of resurrecting
Mobarak regimen) regretted it. So there has been a popular demand to go into
early elections but he didn't listen to the people.
THIRD, he abolished the word "Democracy"
last November when he awarded himself sweeping presidential powers that were
not initially outlined in the constitution. They were approved by the Muslim
Brotherhood-dominated constitutional assembly.
FOURTH, Almost 25 million people signed a petition
asking for early elections and change of a corrupt government but he didn't
care. 3 MONTHS AGO, he was told that if no action is taken, we will protest! He
LASTLY, what happened in Egypt earlier is by no means a military coup as you call it.
The military's intervention was very welcome and CAME ONLY as a response of
what the masses desired (POPULAR DEMAND that out numbered pro morsi's at least
10X = DEMOCRACY). THE PEOPLE of Egypt called them in because they have had enough and they were
willing to shed blood in order to FREE the country from him. They called them
NOT to govern but to prevent more bloodshed, to maintain security in the
country while a transition government is being formed. That's why it is a
REVOLUTION NOT A COUP! ALL MY RESPECT to the 33 Million in Egypt who freed my country. CHAPEAU
