EGYPT: Huge crowds of Brotherhood besieging the Supreme Constitutional Court in Egypt
Morsi, Muslim Brotherhood president, called for a referendum in two weeks on a contentious draft constitution just an hour after he received the draft. The 100-member assembly stayed through the early hours of last night to finish the draft. His decision comes hours before the Supreme Court rules.
Huge crowds of Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators reached the vicinity of the Supreme Constitutional Court, highest court in Egypt, and besieged the Court. The demonstrators are demanding Morsi, President of Muslim Brotherhood, to dissolve the Court. Witnesses living next to the Court said, Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafists blocked Maadi Corniche in advance to tomorrow’s decision which is expected to dissolve the Constitution draft, the assembly that drafted the constitution and the Shura Council. This is the same court where Morsi took the oath of office and sworn in as president.
1) The drafted constitution has 234 articles and it took the 100-member assembly 12 hours to approve it which means the approval for each article lasted 3 minutes.
2) All society factions except Muslim Brotherhood were absent during the approval
3) Sharia Law is the main source of legislation
4) The draft contains no article specifically establishing equality between men and women or equal rights to minority.
Thanks to United States for spreading democracy in the Middle East and “Arab Spring” which transform the Middle East into an Islamic terrorist region and allowed sick minded people gain power.
UPDATE: The opposition announced a civil disobedience will start Tuesday and even march on Morsi's presidential palace.
There is a strong possibility bymembers of the Supreme Constitutional Court to hold their scheduled meeting on Sunday, to consider dissolution of the Constituent Assembly and the Shura Council in a place other than the main headquarters of the Supreme Constitutional Maadi.
Constitutional Court decided to suspend work until court members feel safe and confirmed today was a dark day in the history Egyptian judiciary.
Judges, headed by Judge Ahmed ulna, announced today boycott to oversee the referendum on the constitution scheduled on 15 of this month
PLEASE TELL ME IS THIS THE DEMOCRACY EGYPTIANS WERE HOPING FOR? OR THIS IS A POLITICAL TERRORISM!!
