    Report: Egypt army officers back anti-Morsi protests - Israel News, Ynetnews

    Morsi may have replaced the top generals, but the officer corps that supported the revolution before the Muslim Brotherhood usurped it seems to be supporting it again.

    Did Morsi's power grab end the revolution or give it new life?

    Egyptian President’s Hedging on Decree Fails to Stop Protest
    November 27, 2012 — Thousands of people flowed into the streets of Cairo, the Egyptian capital, Tuesday afternoon for a day of protest against President Mohamed Morsi’s attempt to assert broad new powers for the duration of the country’s political transition, dismissing his efforts just the night before to reaffirm his deference to Egyptian law and courts.

    The generals were in dictator Mubaraks camp.

    Morsi neutered many of them when he took control.

    Now the generals want their positions and power back.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they were the people behind the protests. :cool:

    Opponents Blame Muslim Brotherhood for Egyptian Leader's 'Overreach'
    November 28, 2012 — Hundreds of Egyptians continued to demonstrate for a sixth consecutive day against President Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday as two of Egypt's highest courts said they will suspend work in protest of his decree last week granting himself judicial immunity.

    Morsi finds himself in a position most unstrategic for his power grab.

    He has placed himself and his credibility in a very precarious position.
