    CAIRO – Thousands of anti-coup protesters joined nation-wide marches after Friday prayers on a day dubbed by the Muslim Brotherhood “The People Reclaim their Revolution” despite warnings by police Thursday that it will continue to use live fire “in legitimate self-defense.” According to news reports, the health ministry said six people had been killed on Friday in fighting between protesters and local residents, including one in Port Said. Morsi’s supporters said that another person was also killed in Zagazig, Sharqiya province. Otherwise the marches were relatively peaceful, except for some clashes in Cairo’s Mohandiseen area at Mostafa Mahmoud Square where police fired…

    Op:ed: In Egypt, Only the Dead Know Who is Right

    BY DEENA DOUARA Cairo – I think, perhaps, amid all the emotion, one can make a calculated decision on where to stand on the violence in Egypt. I understand both arguments. Security forces are massacring mostly peaceful demonstrators with impunity, ushering in the type of force we sought to overthrow in 2011, the type of brutality we despised for years, that made martyrs of young faces now rendered across Tahrir Square. Or, Morsi supporters are being dealt with after firing first, attacking police stations and churches, threatening to “burn” Egypt. They are terrorists seeking to rip apart — both literally…

    Editorial: Egypt’s False Dichotomies

    BY RANIA AL MALKY Cairo – It’s been a week since the brutal dispersal of Cairo’s largest anti-coup protests in Rabaa and Nahda squares, a week of lies, hate, bloodshed and xenophobia. Having manufactured “enemies-of-the-state” out of tens of thousands of Egyptians opposed to a political setback that has catapulted the country back 60 years to the height of Nasser’s police state, Egypt’s de facto ruling military is on a path of no return. False dichotomies propagated by conspiratorial public and private media in perfect sync and that have tragically split every Egyptian family, are the bedrock of the violence…

    Egypt’s deep state was never dismantled, is now stronger

    BY LEYLA DOSS Cairo – More than 10 days after attempts by envoys from the US, the EU and Arab Gulf states to mediate a standoff between Egypt’s military-installed interim leadership and supporters of the recently ousted President Mohamed Morsi, the presidency announced Wednesday that diplomatic efforts have failed. The statement by interim President Adli Mansour has raised fears amongst human rights advocates on an imminent crackdown on two large Islamist sit-ins which began late June. Following Morsi’s ouster on July 3 in a military coup after mass protests against his rule, a strengthened Interior Ministry announced plans to resurrect…

    Op-ed: The Myth of Khaki Democracy

    BY IAN BURUMA New York – Egypt and Thailand have little in common, except for one thing. In both countries, at different times, educated people who pride themselves on being democrats have ended up applauding military coups against elected governments. They had resisted oppressive military regimes for many years. But, in Thailand in 2006, as in Egypt last month, they were happy to see their political leaders ousted by force. This perversity is not without reason. The elected leaders in both countries, Thaksin Shinawatra in Thailand and Mohamed Morsi in Egypt, were good examples of illiberal democrats: they tended to…
