Morsi grants himself sweeping powers

There are 18 comments on the www.jihadwatch.org story from Nov 23, 2012, titled Morsi grants himself sweeping powers. In it, www.jihadwatch.org reports that:

Egypt's president on Thursday issued constitutional amendments that placed him above judicial oversight and ordered the retrial of Hosni Mubarak for the killing of protesters in last year's uprising.

Mohammed Morsi also decreed immunity for the Islamist-dominated panel drafting a new constitution from any possible court decisions to dissolve it ...

Liberal and Christian members withdrew from the assembly during the past week to protest what they say is the hijacking of the process by Morsi's allies, who they saw are trying to push through a document that will have an Islamist slant marginalizing women and minority Christians and infringing on personal liberties ...

from jihadwatch:

"The moves effectively remove any oversight on Morsi, the longtime Muslim Brotherhood figure who became Egypt's first freely elected president ...

"Morsi not only holds executive power, he also has legislative authority ... With two branches of power in his hands, Morsi has had repeated frictions with the third, the judiciary, over recent months.

"'Morsi today usurped all state powers & appointed himself Egypt's new pharaoh,' pro-reform leader Mohamed ElBaradei wrote on his Twitter account. "A major blow to the revolution that could have dire consequences ...'"

... consequces such as the emergence of a new islamic caliphate based in Cairo?

Enjoy it then. Your the one's who'll suffer under the Islamic yoke when reality strikes.
This time round Islam will have to rely on it's own people instead of using the knowledge it stole upon from it's former conquests.

Egypt was known for its mumification process, but they couldn't even preserve their dead democracy for very long.

Correct me if I'm wrong. But didn't Sunni Muslims detonate a bomb at a Shiite Mosque in Afghanistan a couple of days ago?
That would be like Protestants setting off a bomb at a Catholic Church with the design to kill and maim Christians.
If you Muslims cannot resolve your differences between yourselves, how are you going to resolve your differences with a country like Israel?
israel is a country...ha ha ha..bla.. bla.. bla..

We would rather a million Israels than one Muslim country. Islam is the cancer and soon the cancer will be removed, we are sick of you and all you represent, we are sick of your lies, we are sick of your wining when you cant get your own way, we are sick of your demands, we are sick of all your threats, we are sick of your scrounging and we are sick of all the murders, you cant even stand up and fight man to man, you resort to targeting the innocent women and children with suicide bombs, or placing your weapons in hospitals or schools then blameing every on but your selfs when your people get hurt. If you want to behave like morons then go ahead, if you are so proud to be a muslim and hate the west so much then, stay in your own countries and stop accepting the millions of pounds and dollars in aid, Take back all the muslims in the west so they can live in your muslim paradise, they are neither needed or wanted in the west, we are quit willing to send them back to you, why dont you build a huge wall arround the middle east to keep us filthy westerners out, we dont mind, all we will have to do is wait for islam to destroy its self when the various muslim fsctions kill eachother off. islam is a baket case.

Just as I predicted, the Egyptian "revolution" turns out to be nothing more than another coup in which the new dictator emerges as being worse than the last dictator. That is the tale of the entire "Arab Spring" farce. Muslims have lived in chaos, oppression, poverty and slaughter ever since their criminally insane "prophet" invented their demonic "religion". Nothing has changed. Oh well.

The "Spring" was easilly co-opted by the Muslim Brotherhood, an islamist org described as the "gateway drug" for more militant groups.

from newser:

"Mohamed Morsi's decision to significantly expand his own powers in Egypt is getting an emphatic condemnation from the nation's top judges, reports the Guardian. Morsi's decree putting his office above the courts until a constitution is written is an "unprecedented assault" on the judiciary, they wrote. The judges, many of whom were appointed by Hosni Mubarak ..."

In attempting to purge Egypt of every vestige of Mubarek, Morsi is making himself even more of a dictator, reminiscent of when Castro replaced Batista.

from newser:

"Egypt's stock market plummeted today as President Mohamed Morsi and the nation's judiciary hinted at a compromise over his recent power grab, reports Reuters ...

"For his part, Morsi asked for talks with political groups and said his power grab was just temporary ..."

... Morsi's power grab will only last to the end of his "reign".

Morsi understands an Islamic state cannot survive without the powers of a police state. Absolute control is necessary as in Saudi Arabia and Iran.
Islam and democracy are incompatible.

"With the Arab spring we can clearly see that when the governing police state is suddenly removed, Muslim societies across the board descend into violence and chaos – religious sects fight other sects, tribes fight other tribes, looting is rampant and men are reduced to defending their families against their neighbors. Needless to say, this is not what we expect from religion. We expect religion to uphold morality and civilizational standards. It is clear Islam doesn’t do that."
What is civilised about Islam. Name one thing.

Islam, a sham.
