Morsi shrugs off military ultimatum as protesters surround palace

posted at 8:41 am on July 2, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

How do world leaders know that it’s been a bad day?  When your government has to send out one of its ministers to deny it has collapsed, that’s a pretty sure sign:

Egypt’s justice minister denied an al-Arabiya television report that the government had resigned on Tuesday after the armed forces gave President Mohamed Mursi 48 hours to agree to share power in response to mass protests.

“The government has not submitted its resignation and what has been raised on that matter is not true,” Justice Minister Ahmed Suleiman told reporters after a meeting of the rump cabinet under Prime Minister Hisham Kandil.

That may be a matter of degree, however.  Six ministers have confirmed that they resigned from Morsi’s government, none of them from the Muslim Brotherhood.  However, two more failed to show up for the cabinet session, and those two are critical to the survival of Morsi in the crisis.  Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim, an independent, would have nominal charge of civilian security, and Defense Minister Abdul al-Sisi runs the Egyptian army — and both were no-shows, apparently.

Sisi, of course, is the man giving Morsi ultimatums.  Morsi tried shrugging them off earlier today, but his options look increasingly limited:

President Mohamed Mursi rebuffed an army ultimatum to force a resolution to Egypt’s political crisis, saying on Tuesday that he had not been consulted and would pursue his own plans for national reconciliation.

But the Islamist leader looked increasingly isolated, with ministers resigning, the liberal opposition refusing to talk to him and the armed forces, backed by millions of protesters in the street, giving him until Wednesday to agree to share power.

Newspapers across the political spectrum saw the army’s 48-hour deadline as a turning point. “Last 48 hours of Muslim Brotherhood rule,” the opposition daily El Watan declared. “Egypt awaits the army,” said the state-owned El Akhbar.

Not everyone agrees, of course. The Muslim Brotherhood appealed to Egyptians to support constitutional government over a “coup”:

The Brotherhood’s political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party, said the Egyptian people alone had the right to draw a roadmap for the nation and had done so in the constitution approved in a referendum last December.

It called on the people “to rally to defend constitutional legitimacy and express their refusal of any coup against it.”

The people are rallying, surely, but not on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood or its arrogant wielding of power since winning an election for which only they had time to prepare.  They effectively shut out any other voices while reworking the constitution, fixing the field so that only they could effectively compete in the future.  Now they want to claim that the people are invested in the new form of constitutional republic, only to discover that the Muslim Brotherhood has isolated itself through its own hubris and overreach.

If Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood want to salvage anything out of this trainwreck, perhaps that might be the place to start.  Otherwise, they’re about to discredit themselves for a generation and recreate the military dominance that they had despised for decades.

Thanks to our Pharaoh (aka Pharry Barry®), Morsi seems to be of the belief that his excrement doesn’t stink either.
This entire grabtastic fustercluck could have been averted had our alleged leader not supported Radical Islam – AGAIN.
How has that been working out thus far?
A Democrat POTUS named Clinton murdered many thousands of CHRISTIANS on behalf of the ever-northward push by Islamists to expand their centuries-long attempt at establishing a “Caliphate”. And how well did that work out in the Balkans? Any thanks from Islamists for helping them … Newp.
I wish that just once Leftists would read a f’in’ book or two to gain some perspective. Sadly, they seem to be intoxicated by power and arrogance. Meanwhile, WE and CHRISTIANS worldwide suffer. It is becoming more and more obvious that is BHO’s goal.

Maybe the Libyans could be of help here, we left them enough weapons even after we supplied the Syrian “rebels”. And when it’s all over maybe Egypt could re-absorb Libya. They could build an North African Islamic Super-State.

Aren’t those the Egyptian people in the streets?

Exit questions: Whose side is the Egyptian army on, and will they respect the peace treaty with Israel?

Steve Z on July 2, 2013 at 9:28 AM

General al-Sissi does not like to be shrugged off…

If Morsi is still alive at the end of the week, maybe he’ll show us how to perp walk like an Egyptian.

But the bigger question, the one the MSM would never ask, the one that Carney will dodge adroitly, if ever asked, is where is Barry on all of this? Surely by now he would have made a huge important sounding (and long, tedious) speech, praising those in the streets, calling them stalwarts, brave, democrats in the finest sense of the word, and he’d say that since there are millions of them, in the streets, risking life and limb, calling for the tyrannical government of Egypt to step down immediately….oh, wait a sec…Morsi is a staunch Mohammedan…a brother…or is it brutha…and Obama put him in power?

Well, never mind then, let the slaughter begin.

Maybe in a couple years, just like Syria, maybe Obama will draw a red line somewhere…and then get all huffy and stuff…make stern faces, maybe send a nasty letter…

And thousands and thousands will die…just like in Syria.

No, we should not intervene…we do not have to…we just have to publicly announce our support for those who want the Morsi regime to go, and cut off all aid to the Morsi government, and tell Morsi to go, and go now…like Obama did to Mubarrak….putz.

That’s all it will take.

Or would have before we got b*tch-slapped by Ecuador.

Surely you jest … (I know …”Stop calling me Shirley”)…

President Empty Chair is nowhere to be seen on all of this.

He sure hopes the Egyptians figure it out because, you know, a democracy means you can’t blame everything bad on the opposition & insist on getting your way 100% of the time.

But any suggestion that (a) he is in any way, shape or form responsible for any of this; (b) it wasn’t in America’s interest to support the Muslim Brotherhood’s grab for power in the first place; and (c) he has any ability to influence the outcome in any way, shape or form …

it just over the top outrageous.

This outcome was inevitable the moment someone decided it was a good idea to support the MB. Egypt used to be a supporter of ours helping keep stability in the region. The Egyptian military will side with the people IMHO. Now it will be interesting to find out if Morsi has any offshore accounts with 1.5 Billion US dollars in it. A dictator could live quite comfortably on that kinda dough in some rathole in South America.

canopfor on July 2, 2013 at 10:33 AM

The question needs to be asked- where did the majority of Egyptians who allegedly gave Morsi the presidency and a parliamentarian majority go?

It would seem to me that based on current protest crowds and the widespread support for them across a broad coalition, either that majority never existed or vanished as those who voted saw their goodwill betrayed. Personally, I am going to believe the latter and deduce the vote was not legitimate and either coerced or otherwise fraudulent.

This is the elephant in the room nobody seems to have a desire to address. If the vote was not legitimate in the first place and it was accepted by people such as then Secretary of State Clinton and President Obama- what does it say about their judgment and ability to correctly determine legitimate democratic outcomes? One thought I would conclude is they are both inept and eager to promote a political narrative rather than pursue democratic processes which comport with the peoples will. If you look at our own countries situation it’s not hard to imagine. In fact, it’s rather logical.

This Egyptian uprising should be the instructional video for cleaning up the “government” of the United States.
The current government is no longer legitimate…
The officials of the government ignore the Constitution and duly enacted laws.
The SCOTUS makes up new writings of laws in order to save them.
The Executive, Scotus, Congress and Senate are corrupt; they exclude themselves from the laws foisted on the citizenry.
The Agencies of government are used as political weapons against the people.
Millions of Americans must fill the streets and stay until the corruption is excised.
