After Morsi’s Ousting, Egypt Swears in New President, Cracks Down on the Muslim Brotherhood

Supports of former president Mohamed Morsi gather outside of Cairo University, July 4, 2013.

Egypt’s sudden military-enforced transition from the reign of former President Mohamed Morsi continued on Thursday as Adli Mansour was sworn in as interim president while the security crackdown on Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood deepened with the arrest of most of the Brotherhood’s senior leadership.

Mansour, a 67-year-old longtime judge with a previously low public profile, was originally meant to be sworn as new head of the Supreme Constitutional Court on July 1. But that was delayed after massive nationwide anti-Morsi protests on June 30 tipped the country into political crisis, so Thursday’s ceremony was turned into a double header.

During the swearing-in, military jets flew in formation over Tahrir Square trailing colored smoke to form an airborne Egyptian flag.

In his subsequent address to the nation, Mansour—who many Egyptians had never heard speak before today—tried to paint the transition as a necessary adjustment to bring Egypt back onto the path set by the January 2011 revolution, which ousted entrenched dictator Hosni Mubarak.

Mansour said he had been given the authority and the mission, “to amend and correct the revolution of the 25th of January 2011.”

“The most glorious thing about June 30″—referring to Sunday’s massed anti-Morsi protests—”is that it brought together everyone without discrimination or division,” he said. “I offer my greetings to the revolutionary people of Egypt.” When asked if the Muslim Brotherhood would be included in whatever future coalition government is created, Mansour said, “Nobody will be excluded, and if they respond to the invitation, they will be welcomed.”

But that inclusive vision seemed increasingly unlikely on Thursday as the venerable Islamist organization vowed not to recognize or work with the new government. Thousands of Brotherhood supporters remain gathered outside the Rabaa Adaweya Mosque in the Cairo district of Nasr City, and the group announced plans for an indefinite sit-in.

Security forces surrounded the site Wednesday evening; they have made no moves to disperse the estimated 10,000 Brotherhood supporters, and appear to be allowing new people to join. At least 10 people were killed overnight Wednesday in clashes between supporters and opponents of Morsi around the country. The total death toll since the crisis began on June 30 is at least 35 — including 16 in a particularly bloody clash near Cairo University on Tuesday.

Morsi and most of his senior advisers remain detained by the military at an undisclosed location. At least a dozen senior Brotherhood officials have been arrested or detained. No formal charges have been filed. And the public rout of the Brotherhood leadership accelerated further on Thursday with the news that Supreme Guide Mohammed Badea and his deputy Kheirat Al Shater has also been arrested. Badea—the ultimate decision-maker inside the Brotherhood’s paramilitary internal structure—was reportedly arrested in the northwest corner of Egypt not far from the Libyan border. Libyan media reported that he was detained in a failed attempted to flee Egypt into Libya.

The arrest seem certain to deepen the paranoia gripping the Muslim Brotherhood—which, after decades of existence as an oppressed, clandestine movement dramatically rose to power last year. Their sudden overthrow has left them isolated and embittered. Nine cabinet ministers belonging to the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party announced their resignations Thursday in protest over what they labeled an anti-democratic military coup. The Brotherhood also called for mass demonstrations Friday in support of Morsi, but a statement on the group’s website asked its cadres, “to show restraint and commitment to peacefulness.” But there are already signs that this loss is radicalizing elements of the Morsi support base and driving some to talk openly of violence. On one of Egypt’s satellite channels last night, an unnamed man in the Morsi crowd openly told his interviewer: “I tell Al-Sissi: know that you have created a new Taliban and a new al-Qaeda in Egypt … You’ve created new mujahideen and new martyrs.”

The Brotherhood purge is already drawing negative attention in some international circles. Human Rights Watch released a detailed statement decrying, “A return to Mubarak-era practices of mass arrests and politically-motivated imprisonment of Muslim Brotherhood leaders.”

The group also noted that several Brotherhood-affiliated satellite TV stations were taken off the air immediately after Defense Minister Abdel Fatah Al-Sissi announced Morsi’s ouster Wednesday night. The Freedom and Justice Party complained on Thursday that its daily newspaper had been prevented from publishing.

Joe Stork, HRW’s deputy Middle East director, said, “One test of whether Egypt can return to a path of democratic development will rest on whether the Freedom and Justice Party can operate without political reprisals against its members.”

Other international reaction to Morsi’s removal was decidedly mixed.

U.S. President Barack Obama announced in a statement that he was “deeply concerned” by the developments and called on the Egyptian military to “move quickly and responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process.” Obama also called on the military to “to avoid any arbitrary arrests of President Morsi and his supporters.”

Washington’s concerns have been duly noted (and angrily dismissed) by many of the activist forces that called for Morsi’s downfall. Opposition groups here have bristled for months over what they perceived as American support for the Morsi administration and the Brotherhood.

On Thursday, the daily newspaper Al-Tahrir took the unusual step of printing a front page headline in English that was clearly directed straight at Obama: “It’s a Revolution … Not a Coup, Mr. Obama!”

Other foreign governments were far less circumspect.

“This is a major setback for democracy in Egypt. It is urgent that Egypt return as quickly as possible to the constitutional order… there is a real danger that the democratic transition in Egypt will be seriously damaged,” said German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle.

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said, “The power change in Egypt was not a result of the will of the people. The change was not in compliance with democracy and law.”

And no less an international relations authority than Syrian President Bashar Assad also weighed in on the abrupt downfall of the man who recently severed relations and repeatedly called for Assad’s own removal.

“What is happening in Egypt is the fall of what is known as political Islam,” Assad said in an interview with Syrian state newspaper Al-Thawra. “After a whole year, reality has become clear to the Egyptian people. The Muslim Brotherhood’s performance has helped them see the lies the [movement] used at the start of the popular revolution in Egypt.”

IN MY OPINION, EGYPT HAS TO CHANGE THEIR ELECTION PROCESS. THE BROTHERHOOD DID NOT HAVE A MAJORITY VOTE AND THERE WERE SO MANY SPLINTER PARTIES THAT ONE OF THEM STOOD A CHANCE OF BEING ELECTED. MY PROPOSAL CAN RESULT IN A CANDIDATE RECEVING A MAJORITY VOTE AS THE RESULT OF ONLY ONE ELECTION PROCESS. WHAT THE ELECTION CHOICES SHOULD BE TO SELECT YOUR TOP 5(?) CHOICES. THEN NOBOY'S TOP CHOICE HAS A MAJORITY VOTE THEN THE TOP 5(?) VOTE GETTERS VOTES SHOULD BE RECOUNTED INCLUDING EACH VOTER'S TOP CHOICE, IF ONE OF THE TOP 5, PLUS IF THE VOTER'S TOP CHOICE WAS NOT ONE OF THE TOP 5, EACH VOTER'S 2nd CHOICE, IF ONE OF THE TOP 5. ETC UNTIL YOU GO THROUGH ALL 5 VOTER'S CHOICE TO COUNT ONE VOTE FOR THEIR HIGHEST CHOICE AND NO VOTE IF THEIR 5 CHOICES WERE NOT ONE OF THE TOP 5. THIS SHOULD GIVE A MAJORITY FOR SOMEONE. IF IT DOESN'T, THEN REPEAT THE PROCESS FOR THE TOP 3 VOTE GETTERS FROM THIS PROCESS FOR THE TOP 3 VOTE GETTERS. IF THAT DOESN'T GIVE SOMEBODY A MAJORITY VOTE THEN REPEAT THE PROCESS FOR ONLY THE TOP 2 FROM THE TOP 3 VOTE GETTERS.

Hope that the United States do not just have their interest in nurturing Pro-US- regimes in the Middle East, and don't care whether it is democratic or undemocratic, and therefore this area is not yet calm。Taiwan is victim of interest policy of United States, the following letter responses Taiwanese voice of complaint. To United States President Barack Obama an open letter. President Obama: I'm a Taiwan four-wheeled animal, today writing this letter to the leader of the most powerful country in the world, ' calling for:your country friendly treats Taiwan people please. Since the more than 60 years ago, post second world war, the United States had helped the KMT enter in Taiwan, it turned upside down and had suffered the 228 incident, '46 event', Lei Chen incident, Taiyuan event, Peng Ming-min event, Bai Yacan event, the beautiful island event---and so on. In particular the 228 incident, your country standed idly by, causing tens of thousands of Taiwan people to disappear from this land, (creepy). While Taiwan people spent 38 years of martial law a terrorist ' Cliff '. In 2000 the first time DPP had taken power , in 2004 the Democratic Progressive Party (continuing in power), until May 2008, the eight-year ruling period was the golden age of Taiwan "independent sovereignty" and "democratic freedoms" , but Taiwan President Chen Shui-bian stepped down then, "The heaven of Taiwan consciousness " fell into "The hell of Chinese consciousness ", from the garden of "democratic and free" dropping to "the abyss of dictatorship " The United States, Kuomintang, Communist China were against Taiwan independence in unison, so that United States allowed KMT and Chinese Communists to the outgoing Taiwan President into darkness. And made him become world most unuseful political prisoner: First, 23 hours he had been shut in ' homes room-1.38 ping ' shared by two people and video and lighting irradiation-he could not identify day and night ", second, and could not come to factory for work, third, and " interfered his medical human rights-ring nursing medical he could not select hospital ", IV, and more outrageous thing:President Ma Ying-jeou did not believe the medical report-suitable for home treatment, of fomer President Chen's medical team of Taipei Veterans General Hospital, sly took him to the Taichung prison.Originally being a iron man through upside down, the former President, now became a crippling discomfort old man. One ruling talent "KMT, and People First Party and the large China doctrine media did siegie in ,he had soluted the mess of KMT government:the Stagnation of Snow Mountain Tunnel,and Keelung River coastal low area of flooded water, and near NT 2 trillion yuan of financial bad loans, and continuing loss of State Career Institutions---etc. for problems, and had completed KMT government 50 or 60 years difficult to complete major traffic, and culture hardware and software construction, such as Taiwan North-South high-speed rail, and second Freeway, and 12 article East-West fast roads, and established" Hakka and Aborigines "Committee and Television---and so on," became a lonely old man "his comrades accepted political contribution he received, nearly get away. some even thinked dirty to get more (cursimg) more fiercely.He cultivated Tsai Ing-wen and Su Chen-Chang and Frank Hsieh-three politicians were callous . Local societies for thanking to the former United States Attorney General Clark to "caring President Ahbian" dinner they were not reluctant to participate in, let alone with him visiting President Ahbian " .It is chilling. President Obama, "your country facing to," President Ahbian's 2,726,499 people signing up to the "world record" Taiwan joining the United Nations referendum " basing on," the identity of World War II of Taiwan military occupying nation" was wrath ,but facing to " KMT, CPC signing ECFA of unilaterally changing the status quo in the Taiwan Strait ", the identity of military occupation" disappeared all of a sudden, people had feel bewildered. On being independent status quo of chang must not do, but on the uniform change "turning a blind eye," just "the motions". Is United States a nation of schizophrenia? it's trophy, but irrelevant to the Kuomintang, the Chinese Communists wheeling, don't let the trophy itselves stay alive.Does "the shadow of Japanese militarism" away go? led United States most not willingly see" independent Taiwan linking with Japan "? Years ago, National Geographic Channel broadcasted the documentary of Hiroshima atomic bomb explosion , a veteran-being more ninety years-old said similar such words" While atomic bomb explosion caused Japan people casualties, but to scare to end war, I don't regret to drop atomic bomb, ' my ideas has not been changing' ". The United States past had longly supported "anti-communist, anti-'Taiwan independence', exclusive Japan, murder did not blink" for the regime of two-Chiang, now supports "reliance on China ', anti-'Taiwan independence', against Japan, struggling political enemy for disregarding the law " Ma Ying-jeou's power. Does it make people more believe that it objects Taiwan indepedence being afraid of Japan? The whole world's most powerful leader straightens your spine, who should face to face in ' Taiwan problem '. If the United States believes that Taiwan is not a country but it's the trophy, then it'll take back to, or allowing Taiwan independence to life. Also The United States should step in to stop the Kuomintang, the Chinese Communists unilateral change of the status quo in the Taiwan Strait, and urge President Ma Ying-jeou of its 'qausi-citizen or citizen', to release former Taiwan President Chen Shui-bian. This is the obligation and responsibility of The United States , because it introduced the KMT to Taiwan many earthshaking events that took place, of course, it has to come good. Otherwise the whole world will see The United States is the country daring not face up to the problem by manufacturing problem. I sincerely look forward to your country thinking twice thinking twice.

You are not see the hole picture in egypt , as the Egyptians gave the chance to the Muslim brotherhood to take the lead with some concerns on The integrity of the presidential election To they were not at an end expectations of the people of Egypt, where they Take all the power and changed all the functions of leadership in the state to be affiliated to them, did not succeed in resolving the economic problems facing the Egyptian people of gasoline, electricity and Foodstuffs and this is what makes the Egyptian people come out against them in the June 30, There are many things that helped the occurrence of the Muslim Brotherhood, such as their support to the Palestinian movement Hamas, which it considers farmers Military them and the proof is that after the exclusion of the former president from power turned crisis gasoline and food in Egypt to Gaza, where he was the Muslim Brotherhood send these materials to the Gaza Strip and deprives Egyptians, Is it worth to be head of the Egyptians, even if it comes to democratic elections, be sure you tell the truth, and that Todhoha after confirming them, because the presence of the Muslim Brotherhood, will increase the troubles of the Egyptians

It is a revolution dummy dear Mr/ Obama I don't know why do we have to explain it to you,yet we will do it any way. sir you have backed the wrong side and I hope that you have realized that by now but if you haven't here is why: 1- Your adviser should have told you by now what is the muslim brotherhood? how did it start? what did they do in the past? and who are they affiliated with? But if they haven't the muslim brotherhood have participate or have been affiliated with the assassination of judges, prime minster, chairmen of parliament,and the attempts of assassinating presidents and that since they were founded by Hassan El Bana eighty years ago. and to be quite honest with you some of that killing was done under their name or people who branched out to form their own groups when they didn't like the radicalism of the brotherhood as they were not radical enough for them 2- So if they didn't participate in terrorism they were the main reason for them to appear and they knew them and they had their contacts with them, in short they were affiliated with them, that is why when we see that they freed the people who killed president Sadat, or the people who killed the police officers in the eighties, when you see them people speak in official gatherings you can not be surprised, because when you know the history you can predict the future. 3- Now let's talk about the American actions, when Hamas -who is known as the muslim brotherhood branch in the occupied territories in Palestine- won the elections in what was called a fair and just election, America said that democracy is not just the election. yet when president Morsi won and started to concrete his position and the position of the Muslim brotherhood by taking a lot of decisions the least that could be said about it that is a dictator's actions America said nothing when he discarded the political minorities and Christians you said nothing when those people called the oppositions not Muslims and they Encourages the people to attack the Shiites in Egypt which results in the murder of four people in their home, can you explain that to me 4- when you see the amount of people that came out on the thirtieth of June and you don't know what to describe it, then I must say that you don't care about freedom and democracy you only care about the American agenda in the Region which is very clear was with the muslim brotherhood and to hail with democracy and the will of the people, sir stop talking about democracy, you sound very hypocritical, and you can only talk about what you care about which is the safety and the security of Israel and may be I will start to believe you your truly Ahmed Sayed Gharib Egyptologist and English tour guide

The only fault of President Morsi is that he did not moved ahead diligently and cautiously to strength the newly budding but weak Democracy taking root  in Egypt. In his subsequent address to the nation, Mansour—who many Egyptians had never heard speak before today—tried to paint the transition as a necessary adjustment to bring Egypt back onto the path set by the January 2011 revolution, which ousted entrenched dictatorHosni Mubarak.

Mansour said he had been given the authority and the mission, “to amend and correct the revolution of the 25th of January 2011.” WHO GAVE HIM (MANSOUR) THE AUTHORITY AND THE MISSION in presence of duly elected Parliament.

The German Foreign Minister GUIDO Westerwelle has rightly said “This is a major setback for democracy in Egypt. It is urgent that Egypt return as quickly as possible to the constitutional order… there is a real danger that the democratic transition in Egypt will be seriously damaged,” said German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle..

Sooner the Military goes back to their barracks it would be better for the country and its people. The first democratically elected president Mohahmed Morsi be restored and the solution be sought through newly elected PARLIAMENT. The decision of Parliamaent should be binding on all.

Dear Mr. Obama, For the past 15 years your CIA brains have been planning to change Egypt into another Iraq. Well, NICE TRY. You have FAILED. You don't understand a lot about Egypt, sir. Maybe you should ask your Kenyan Muslim relatives about the status of our country in the Holy Qur'an, or how Prophet Mohamed ,peace be upon him, described our army. Egypt has been mentioned in our Holy Book five times, and is described as a secure country where people live in peace and harmony. Prophet Mohamed (pbuh) has described our soldiers as the best on the planet, stating clearly that our army and the Egyptian people remain united till the end of time. In the Bible, the Egyptian people are described as the blessed nation of Jesus Christ. So Mr. Obama, you can kindly oblige us by calling in your lady of doom Mrs. Anne Patterson back home to the USA, as she is no longer welcomed in Egypt. We hope you have learnt that not all countries yield to manipulation and that you should not attempt to spend the money of American tax payers creating dictatorships in countries of independence and sovereignty. We call upon all Americans whom we know as a peace loving people to seriously investigate their government's sincere endeavors to aid terrorists imposing a fascist regime, is this what they pay taxes to achieve? Are these the human values upon which you have been elected?? Respectfully, The Egyptian People CAPT ; FAHD

The media in the west and US is insisting on calling what happened in Egypt with the wrong name! That is understood since the US gov made a deal with Morsi in the benefits of Israel; a deal that they even could not get from Mubarak's regime! What happened in Egypt is that Mursi spent a year in the presidency full of mismanagement and failed to do any good for the country. He even made mistakes that endangered the National security of Egypt, he worked too hard towards "BROTHERHOODIZATION" of the country by installing incompetent people from his group at top positions all over the country, creating a real mess in everyday life for Egyptians (problems with fuel, electricity, water....the basics of everyday life). His actions and decisions were full of "DISRESPECT" to the law and the constitutional system. Having said that, the Egyptians felt the great danger around them if Mursi stayed to finish his 4-years term and decided to call for an early election and "Rebellion" movement was created in April 2013. By June 2013, over 22 millions signed a petition calling for an early presidential election. Mursi decided to use his alliance, a group of terrorists, to threaten Egyptians that they will be "exterminated" if they try to oust Mursi. The Egyptians ignored all the warnings from Mursi's alliance and marched into the street on June 30, 2013 in the biggest political crowd in human history (33 millions) against Mursi. The Military and the police announced that they will protect Egyptians and will not allow anyone to threaten them. The demand for an early election was clear and the military supported what Egyptians called for. Mursi refused to listen to his people and said he is willing to die rather than resigning and going for an early election. In a situation like this, the military has no choice but to oust Mursi and do what Egyptians wanted. Are you still calling this a coup?!

Dear Sirs,Obama This is NOT a military coup, but a real revolution in which millions of Egyptians have participated against all odds, and we would not go back to our homes except after Morsi leaves. We are the Egyptian people claiming back our country and we ask you to be on our side and not the side of a fascistic clan of fundamentalists who believe that the West are nothing but infidels. We are people who love freedom, who hail from a civilization that believes in diversity of religions and races. We are Egypt of the 7,000 years telling you: I revolted we declare our support for egyptian president mansour adly ,egypt's army and police in egypt all necessary make sure to protect egypt from the muslim brotherhood terrorist group

the MB was voted into power under democratic elections, now the military removes them and this is not a coup?  the MB is well established as a peaceful organization in the u.s.  it is well known for its community service and peaceful activities along with its political connections to the democratic party.  now all this b.s. from haters.

I'm Egyptian, and I want to let the whole world know What is happening in Egypt is not a COUP, what is happening in Egypt is the revolt of 33 million Egyptians who have been in streets for days demanding for the fall of the fascism rule of the terrorist secret society "Muslims Brotherhood"! The Army took the move after we demanded them to stand at our side, and upon the mass protests, that have been totally ignored from the terrorist society that instead declared they are ready for a war if this is the price to stay in rule , so it is a revolution not a coup finally Obama don't try Regards

Dear World, I'm Egyptian, and I want to let the whole world know that CNN is cheating you! What is happening in Egypt is not a COUP, what is happening in Egypt is the revolt of 33 million Egyptians who have been in streets for days demanding for the fall of the fascism rule of the terrorist secret society "Muslims Brotherhood"! The Army took the move after we demanded them to stand at our side, and upon the mass protests, that have been totally ignored from the terrorist society that instead declared they are ready for a war if this is the price to stay in rule! CNN is giving you a totally fake and untrue picture of what is going on now in Egypt. The Muslims Brotherhood members are killing people since we put them out of rule and the Army is professionally controlling the situation, with the support of every single Egyptian. We argue you to share the cause and let the world know that Egyptians are fighting for their freedom against a society that is threatening the world's peace, which is supported by CNN, Obama and the US Government! Please follow the page CNN Supports Terrorism to stay updated on what's really going on in Egypt
