Washington Post/AP – The campaign of an Islamist who claimed victory in Egypt’s presidential runoff says the Muslim Brotherhood and other political groups plan a mass demonstration later Tuesday to protest a military declaration seeking to curtail the powers of the next president.

Campaign spokesmen for Mohammed Morsi say the protest is planned at Cairo’s Tahrir Square, birthplace of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak’s regime 16 months ago. The protest is also to denounce a court ruling that dissolved parliament, where the Brotherhood dominated with just under half the seats.

    The state of Israel are Esau descendants, who were never in bondage to Egypt (John 8:33). Esau hated Jacob, even after selling his birthright to his twin, Esau is a nation in itself. Esau birthright was given to Joseph, *1st Chronicles 5:2 For Judah prevailed above his brethren and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph’s:) (And the state of Israel hates Joseph *Genesis 50:15* (Israel of the Bible loves Joseph *Genesis 37:3). Who took Christ body, Joseph. The star of Jacob will destroy the star of David?

  • The election of Morsi as President and the accompanying machinations of the Egyptian Military and the Constitutional Court does not necessarily mean that the vast majority of Egyptians will be hostile to the State of Israel and Jews worldwide. It depends how the dynamics are managed.

    Of course wearing rose coloured glasses is dangerous, and there are very alarming anti-Jewish/Israeli sentiments in the country, but I believe the vast majority of Egyptians do not want war with Israel or any other nation. This younger generation is not as easy to manipulate as those of the Nasser era. The Egyptian Actor of “The Kite Runner” fame, 31 y.o. Khalid Abdalla spoke eloquently from Tahrir Square in Feb. 2011 on the BBC World Service.

    A common chant of the children in Tahrir Square then was “Hold your head up high. We are Egyptians”. An upcoming democratic election will be the first time in 5,000 years the Land of the Pharaohs will witness a free election of a government. So yes these are momentous times.
