PostSubject: Egypt army arrests key Muslim Brotherhood figures   Thu Jul 04, 2013 10:49 pm

New politics and new policy in Egypt...

After 'Democracy' ("The peoples voice") was spoken in a most unusual way Egypt is now under Military control.
The 'democratically elected' Morsi was deemed no better than Mubarak after he was elected and then assigned himself 'undemocratic' powers...

We all saw the Western influence in Egypt and elsewhere was moving the Muslim Brotherhood members into positions to 'run' for election...

Now this story from the BBC:

Egypt army arrests key Muslim Brotherhood figures
Egypt's military has moved against the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood, a day after deposing President Mohammed Morsi.

Mr Morsi is in detention, as well as senior figures in the Islamist group of which he is a member. Hundreds more are being sought.

The top judge of Egypt's constitutional court, Adly Mahmud Mansour, has been sworn in as interim leader.

He has pledged to hold elections based on "the genuine people's will".

At a news conference, Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Gehad el-Haddad declared "our full refusal and revoking of the military coup" and demanded Mr Morsi's immediate release, along with the other detainees.

He declared the Brotherhood's "full denial of co-operation" with the new regime and said it would take part in all "peaceful, people-led protest".

"A couple of months ago, people were sceptical of the army. However, we have now seen our faith restored ”

Meanwhile, Egyptian Foreign Minister Kamel Amr - who resigned from Mr Morsi's government on Monday - said he had assured US Secretary of State John Kerry in a telephone call on Thursday that the overthrow of President Morsi had not been a military coup, but the "overwhelming will of the people".

The upheaval in Egypt comes after days of mass rallies against Mr Morsi and the Brotherhood, who are accused of pursuing an Islamist agenda and failing to tackle Egypt's economic problems.

Some 50 people have died since the latest unrest began on Sunday, with correspondents saying that there are continuing fears of confrontation between the pro- and anti-Morsi blocs.

A coalition of Islamist parties - the National Coalition in Support of Legitimacy - has called for mass demonstrations to denounce the army's actions following Friday prayers.

Mr Mansour praised the armed forces and the Egyptian people



"I don't know everything, I know just enough to know that I know nothing - which is just a little more than those who think they know anything!"
