    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: The Myth of Khaki Democracy

    Screen grab shows Defense Minister Abdel Fattah El Sisi who led the coup against ousted President Morsi on July 3.

    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…

    Op-ed: And the winner is…?

    BY REHAM BARAKAT Cairo – At midnight last Friday, I could still hear the fireworks exploding outside my window, along with the sound of helicopter engines purring over the Presidential Palace exactly a minute’s walk from my window. It was the day hundreds of thousands of Egyptians across the nation decided to step outside into the streets in what was coined a “protest against potential terrorism” to use the words of Egypt’s Minister of Defense Abdel Fatah El Sissi. I refused to join the plodding march to provide the Armed Forces with a metaphorical “mandate” to resist “terrorism” in the…

    In Pictures: Protesters at Higher Judicial Council

    CAIRO – One day following the publication of a front-page report by Egypt’s leading state-owned newspaper Al Ahram claiming that President Morsi was ordered remanded in custody for 15 days by the Prosecutor General, his supporters staged a massive protest in front of the Higher Judicial Council. Morsi, Egypt’s first democratically-elected civilian president, was removed by military coup and has been held incommunicado at an undisclosed location since July 3. The news has since been denied, but Morsi’s whereabouts are yet to be revealed. In a press conference on Monday, Morsi’s family accused the army of abducting their father and…

    Op-ed: Coup vs. revolution: Which narrative to prevail?

    BY ABDELGHANY SAYED Cairo –Following 18 days of protests in around five governorates, Egyptians woke up on 11 February 2011 to see military tanks across the country; while rumors spread that Mubarak is about to step down. A few hours after midday, Egypt’s ex-spy chief, who was appointed as vice-president on 29 January 2011, Omar Suleiman, announced that Mubarak has stepped down and handed power over to the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF), while SCAF’s spokesperson announced that the military took over power. Mubarak was then put under house arrest by the military in an unknown place, (Sharm El-Sheikh according…

    Analysis: Morsi: A fairly typical Muslim Brother

    Screen grab shows President Mohamed Morsi making his final speech before being ousted by a military coup.

    BY NAEL SHAMA Cairo – Nikita Khrushchev once said that “politicians are the same all over,” for “they promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.” I agree with the second part. While most politicians are prone to making hefty promises and unrealistic pledges, their deeds and fates diverge fundamentally. Some politicians succeed and inspire, others fail drastically, leaving office disheartened and ostracized. Some politicians are forever remembered, others sink into oblivion in the blink of an eye. More importantly, only a few politicians conquer the constraints imposed by their environments, the rest remain prisoners of their…

    Op-ed: Here’s to Egypt

    Hundreds of thousands of Egyptians rallied for the removal of President Morsi.

    BY REHAM BARAKAT Cairo – “It’s a coup.” “No, it is not, it is a revolution of the people.” “Alright, let’s call it a soft coup.” “Not even, it is the work of Tamarod and the people and the army only stepped in to meet their demands.” This is an example of the revolving, dizzying dialogue that is now flooding traditional and social media and conversations in the street following the spectacular ousting of President Morsi from power in Egypt. After three days of unprecedented protests across the nation denouncing the legitimacy of now ex-President Morsi and demanding early presidential…

    CAIRO – Anti-Morsi protesters in Tahrir Square and Ittihadiya Palace waited in anticipation for the decision of the supreme military council, as the 48-hour ultimatum it gave the president approached its final hour. A jubilant, celebratory mood pervaded both areas as leaks from unnamed military sources implied that President Morsi was practically besieged.  All photos by Hassan Ibrahim.

    Analysis: Showdown in Egypt

    Hundreds of thousands gathered at Rabaa El Adaweya Mosque in Nasr City to uphold the legitimacy of Egypt's first democratically-elected civilian president.

    BY OMAR ASHOUR London – With massive anti-government protests across Egypt on June 30 – a year to the day after Egyptians elected their first-ever civilian president – a diverse and decentralized movement has challenged President Mohammad Morsi’s hold on power as never before. Hundreds of thousands were mobilized to take to the streets, with many storming and burning down the Cairo headquarters of the ruling Muslim Brotherhood. At the end of the day, the president was given an ultimatum. The first “revolutionary” statement of Egypt’s new grassroots Tamarod (rebel) movement demanded that Morsi leave within two days or face a march on the…

    Analysis: Should Egypt’s president resign?

    Hundreds of thousands join mass protests at the Presidential Palace to demand the removal of President Morsi.

    BY FARAH HALIME Cairo – Some said it was the biggest protest they had ever witnessed in Egypt, even during the demonstrations against Hosni Mubarak, the former president. Indeed, yesterday’s anti-government marches calling for the resignation of President Mohammed Morsi exceeded everyone’s expectations in size and were, until late in the day, peaceful. Now, protestors, led by the “Tamarod” or “Rebel” grassroots opposition campaign, are putting increased pressure on Morsi to resign. The Rebel group say they have given the president until 5pm tomorrow to resign, after collecting 22 million signatures from Egyptians, surpassing the 15 million quota they had envisioned….
