[July 3 just before midnight] CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s first democratically elected president was overthrown by the military Wednesday, ousted after just one year in office by the same kind of Arab Spring uprising that brought the Islamist leader to power.

The armed forces announced they would install a temporary civilian government to replace Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, who denounced the action as a “full coup” by the generals. They also suspended the Islamist-drafted constitution and called for new elections.

Millions of anti-Morsi protesters around the country erupted in celebrations after the televised announcement by the army chief. Fireworks burst over crowds in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, where men and women danced, shouting, “God is great” and “Long live Egypt.”

Fearing a violent reaction by Morsi’s Islamist supporters, troops and armored vehicles deployed in the streets of Cairo and elsewhere, surrounding Islamist rallies. Clashes erupted in several provincial cities when Islamists opened fire on police, with at least nine people killed, security officials said.

Gehad el-Haddad, a spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood party, said Morsi was under house arrest at a Presidential Guard facility where he had been residing, and 12 presidential aides also were under house arrest.

The army took control of state media and blacked out TV stations operated by the Muslim Brotherhood. The head of the Brotherhood’s political wing was arrested.

The ouster of Morsi throws Egypt on an uncertain course, with a danger of further confrontation. It came after four days of mass demonstrations even larger than those of the 2011 Arab Spring that toppled longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak.

Egyptians were angered that Morsi was giving too much power to his Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists and had failed to tackle the country’s mounting economic woes.

Egyptian military arrest top Muslim Brotherhood figures amid crackdown
An Islamist coalition led by the Muslim Brotherhood is calling on their supporters to peacefully protest the removal of former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi in a “Friday of Rejection,” after the Egyptian military arrested top Brotherhood figures as part of a major crackdown against the group.

The National Coalition in Support of Legitimacy called on the Egyptian people to “take to the streets and mobilize peacefully” after Friday prayers “to say ‘No’ to military detentions, ‘No’ to the military coup,” according to Reuters.

“We are being headhunted all over the country,” Muslim Brotherhood Spokesman Gehad el-Haddad said Thursday, according to The Guardian. “We are holding a mass rally after Friday prayers to take all peaceful steps necessary to bring down this coup.”

Um, on general principal, I’d have to say “Gee, too darn bad” that the terrorists are being rounded up in Egypt. Cry me a river. And the top two MB guys are named Baddie and the Shitter fer crying out loud. Oh, oops, Badie and el Shater. Yeah, big diff there.

Badie and el-Shater were widely believed by the opposition to be the real power in Egypt during Morsi’s tenure. As of Wednesday night, Badie was last known to be holed up at a tourist resort on the Mediterranean coast near the Libyan border, with security forces surrounding the building.
...
In addition to the two high-ranking leaders, Al-Ahram reported that arrest warrants were issued for 300 other members of the Brotherhood, Reuters reported. Some of the Brotherhood members were reportedly placed in the same prison holding Hosni Mubarak, Egypt’s former president ousted in 2011.

Wow, that could add up to ... a LOT of rubber hoses and electrodes. Still, boo hoo. I think?

Authorities in Egypt reportedly rounded up or ordered the arrest of key leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood on Thursday as the new military-backed president was sworn in promising early, inclusive elections.

Adli Mansour, chief justice of Egypt’s constitutional court until he was promoted to the presidency by the military on Wednesday, defended the removal of Mohamed Morsi – the country’s first elected leader – as a step needed “to correct the path of the glorious revolution” that overthrew longtime strongman Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

“This is the only safe way to a better tomorrow, to more freedom and more justice,” he said in a short televised speech.

But his swearing in coincided with a crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood’s top leaders, including Mohamed Badie, the head of the once-banned group who was arrested in the northern town of Marsa Matruh according to news agency reports. However, the Brotherhood’s Twitter page – often a reliable source – claimed neither Mr Badie nor the group’s number two, Khairat al-Shater, were in detention.

Mr Morsi and at least a dozen aides were out of public view and reportedly detained on Wednesday night, shortly after the military ousted him following popular protests.

Egyptian state television said 56 people had been killed and 2,495 injured since the start of the protests on Sunday.

Mr Morsi’s supporters and their Islamist allies appeared not to know how to react to Wednesday’s overthrow of his government.

… Adli Mansour, was sworn in as interim president.  [Mansour, formerly] The chief justice of Egypt’s supreme constitutional court, took his oath of office under an army transition plan during a ceremony that was broadcast live on state television.

Shortly afterwards, officials announced they had arrested the supreme leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist group of the deposed president.

Mohammed Badie was arrested on Wednesday night in a coastal city west of Cairo and flown to the capital on a military helicopter.

As the swearing-in ceremony got underway, military jets staged a series of fly-pasts across the capital.  A view shows a fly-past over protesters against ousted Egyptian President Mursi in Tahrir Square in Cairo Another night of celebrations in Tahrir Sqaure

Above Tahrir Square, for days the centre of anti-government protests, Air force planes painted the sky in the colours of the national flag.

“I swear to preserve the system of the republic, and respect the constitution and law, and guard the people’s interests,” Mr Mansour said.

He praised the mass protests, saying they united Egyptians, but also invited the deposed president’s Muslim Brotherhood “to take part in the political life”.

“The most glorious thing about June 30 is that it brought together everyone without discrimination or division,” he continued.  “I offer my greetings to the revolutionary people of Egypt. “I look forward to parliamentary and presidential elections held with the genuine and authentic will of the people.

“The youth had the initiative and the noblest thing about this glorious event is that it was an expression of the nation’s conscience and an embodiment of its hopes and ambitions. It was never a movement seeking to realise special demands or personal interests,” he added.

The ceremony followed the dramatic removal of Mr Morsi by the military, the suspension of the Islamist-drafted constitution and a declaration of fresh presidential and parliamentary elections.

So the military pulled a takeover on the guy who got elected to be Maximum Leader after the last Maximum Leader got tossed, because the new one was handing out way too much power and favoritism to a well known terrorist group, which would effectually minimize the military’s hold on power in the country? Or are the good people in the Eqyptian Army, Western trained, Western educated, Western funded, and perhaps utterly Western politically influenced by, wise enough to see that throwing their personal empty little sandbox to the rabid dogs of jizzlam might not be such a smart idea?

Which way will be better, the military backed “democracy” or the terrorists backed “democracy”? Best for the people of Egypt (some of the poorest, least educated, most gullible fellahs on the planet) and the people of America, who give them huge amounts of free money every year.

Only time will tell.


In the mean time, the other important question is ... what will Zahi Hawass do now? He just barely got his old job and full powers back a few short weeks ago, after slipping out from under the suspicion of the Egyptian “Committee of Public Safety” by showing himself not too attached to the old Mubarak regime and tight with the new Morsi regime. Now he’s going to have to squeeze his camel through the eye of that needle all over again. But let’s face it, he’s the only known face of Egypt right now anywhere in the world that doesn’t have a gun or a protest banner associated with it.
