Mr. President Please move our Egypt to socioeconomic development and entrepreneurship.
Complete a one page need assessment of the people needs and translate those needs into the constitution to make sure the constitution reflect the needs of the people. We can no longer afford to have constitutions about three branches of government or political groups but about the people. Remember, Africa has a long history of abandoning socioeconomic, human development and entrepreneurship for control of people and it has not help us. We can not continue to go down the same path or keep duplicating that we have been through that in Africa. Remember, Africa is a diverse continent with it own spiritual quest and history of spirituality before any of the modern religion. The people love God but we can not impose one religion in Africa it will not work. Right now Egypt is stucked on power struggle not over human development, socioeconomic development and entrepreneurship. You have a responsibility to move Egypt out of there to focus on developing the natural resources God created for education, job creation and economic development lacking in Africa. Egypt has a choice to embark on developing the natural and human resources God has giving to them for socioeconomic development or to fight to dominate each other. We tried the later and Africa has a long history of that it has not work. Move forward to socioeconomic and human development and see results. This is the choice you have to make no delay.

Now now... surely you can defend democracy without being a racist...

Unless you're already a racist in which case, never mind.

Is it possible they now have a Moor that see's is in office. Its going to be interesting to see the reaction by the descendants that now occupy and control egypt. I remember Gaddafi saying that he now wanted libya to return to african rule by Africans and encouraged the Libyan to first and foremost consider african first when marrying and even offer to give all libyans a reward or gift for marriage to african libyans. This is a fact that any one can see or hear him in his speeches. Morsi should be very careful in directing Egypt back to glory. Is it a moor that see's in office!

After all these years, do you think Moors have learned their lesson?
01:41 AM on 12/07/2012
I'm sure they have learned their lesson. Starting Winter 2014 they will begin to awaken from a long sleep or purgatory is over! God promised to temporarily turn from US but never forsake US. He is now coming  to fulfill what he promised thru the anointed of the past!

Mohammed Morsi invited members of "the opposition to a 'comprehensive and productive' dialogue starting Saturday at his presidential palace, but gave no sign that he might offer any meaningful concessions."

If I were a member of the opposition, Morsi refers to, I would be a bit concerned about accepting his invite... it seems he has become the new Hosni Mubarak... and we know how Mubarak dealt with members of the opposition... by imprisoning anyone who disagreed with his "absolute power."

We just might see another "Arab Spring" shortly if Morsi doesn't understand the reality of his position, which is indeed very fragile.

A friend of mine, an Egyptian-born American, is just back from a weeks-long trip to Egypt. He tells me that he met many people who say that they voted for Morsi for fear of the return of the Mubarak regime in another guise. He says that many people have told him variants on the theme: "I voted for him, God forgive me."

This seems to be quite prevalent. The 6 April movement, which formed out of a large swath of Egyptian revolutionaries (mainly Tahrir Square activists) sided with Morsi in the elections. They are against him now.

One plausible theory is that the secularists lost because they failed to unite as a single faction during the election, and that their vote tallies, when taken together, were higher than all Islamists combined (the numbers do reflect that--I checked). Those secularists (Moussa, Hamdin Sabbahi, Mohammed Elbaradei, and others) are now united. This puts the majority in the opposition, and they are very energized.

Morsi's dream of dictatorship will not last, if, indeed, he does.

I truly hope you are right. I see a real danger that Morsi and the Brotherhood are all about ruling as dictators.
06:12 AM on 12/07/2012
That's exactly what i've been saying... Mursi and Mb revealed themselves for what they really too soon and in the worst climate possible.

This is good.

Like most countries with a small middle class - "One man one vote one time!"

It's a simple equation: Democracy = a large middle class

The smaller the middle class the smaller the Democracy!

Wonder how Washington forgot that?

Egypt readies for civil war, Syria in full on civil war for the last year and a half which has spilled over into Lebanon, Iraq is a shell of a nation also in civil war, whether they tell you that or not, it's why there are suicide bombing there daily, tens if not hundreds of thousands dead by violent strife and war in Arab nations over the past year, Assad actually mixing up SARIN gas, and you want to damn Israel for building condominiums. I wonder does your hypocrisy ever penetrate your antisemitism, ever.

Do you know what a Semite is? A Semite is a Jew, Arab, or a member of a number of smaller groups in the Middle East. By that definition, both Arabs and Jews are anti-Semites.

Look it up.

Can we stop with that stupid argument? The term anti Semite was coined to describe hatred of Jews. Just because Arabs are semitic as well, it doesn't change the definition of the word, and by making that argument, you distract from the fact that many (not all) of the consistent and vocal critics of Israel are really motivated by bigotry towards Jews, known as antisemitism.

Well said.

Just like to add 2 points. Last week ANOTHER 11 Christians were murdered in Nigeria by Islamic Extremists by having there throats slit.
Has this been plastered over the news? of course not but as you've mentioned Israel plans to build a few apartments and the leftie media thinks a world war will start because of it.
Also the Turkish prime minister requests Patriot missiles from NATO because of the threat of Syrian rockets being fired into Turkey but have the audacity to have a go at Israel for defending themselves against palestinian terrorists.
The Hypocrisy is staggering.

That's like saying close to a million innocent men women and children were killed by the illegal |r@q war so we should invade $w3den.

Morsi is pulling a Mubarak and thinks that once the constitution is approved he can take Egypt back to the days of dictatorship, only this time by the MB. I think the Egyptians have had enough with these petty dictators and I have to admire the man on the street for fighting for freedom.

I'm an American teacher living and working in Cairo (in Heliopolis, where the Presidential Palace is). I would love to see the protests but for obvious safety concerns I stay away. But all my friends and colleagues who are Egyptian, really despise this man. And these are not just the Christians and the liberals. And yes, I do admire them greatly.

Morsi messed up. He earned a significant amount of political capital by mediating in the Israel/Gaza conflict but wasted it all and more on his recent decisions. The process of creating a new constitution needs to be inclusive and needs to be seen as being inclusive. I'm sure the macho ethic will not allow him to reverse his unfortunate decision to grant himself extra powers. This move looks dictatorial, smells dictatorial...

If he truly cared about his country and democracy, he would take additional time to make sure that opposition groups had a say in developing the new constitution. Egypt needs a leader who can show some statesmanship and has a democratic vision for the country.

Yes, question the patriotism of the protesters. That is absolutely the right way to open up dialogue on how to move forward.

Did this guy meet with republicans during the presidential election there or what?
