    Egypt has a new dictator

     

    Egypt's president on Thursday issued constitutional amendments that placed him above judicial oversight. He also barred any court from dissolving the Islamist-led upper house of parliament, a largely toothless body that has also faced court cases and his decisions are not subject to appeal in court or by any other authority.

     

    Morsi decreed immunity for the Islamist-dominated panel drafting a new constitution from any possible court decisions to dissolve it. The question I have is “will a constitution that will allow only one voice be fair to the freedom of speech and equality. It is an act of force and not of right. Morsi not only holds executive power, he also has legislative authority and judicial power.

     

    "Morsi today usurped all state powers & appointed himself Egypt's new pharaoh," pro-reform leader Mohamed ElBaradei wrote on his Twitter account.

     

    This move came as Morsi is riding high on lavish praise from President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for mediating an end to eight days of fighting between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers.

    In Thanksgiving day, Egyptians are thanking Unites States for replacing Mubarak dictatorship with Islamic dictatorship in the form of Muslim Brotherhood.
