    As anyone can clearly see, Egypt's population is finally feelings their power exercised through their collective votes…there is no turning back…As soon as the flames die out, people will get into the business of Nation building…


    Israel has a 2-5 year window to make peace with the Arabs and give back political or shared control of E. Jerusalem or face a future war within our life time.

    Revolutions turn into Nationalism when a Common Enemy is convenient.

    Egypt President Mohammed Morsi Orders Defense Minister Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi Retirement


    CAIRO — Egypt's Islamist president ordered his defense minister and chief of staff to retire on Sunday and canceled the military-declared constitutional amendments that gave top generals wide powers.

    It was not immediately clear whether the decision had the military's blessing. Morsi has been in a power struggle with the military since he came to power on June 30. Shortly before he was announced the winner of elections, the ruling military council that took power after Hosni Mubarak's ouster stripped the presidency of many of its key powers.

    Morsi also appointed a senior judge, Mahmoud Mekki, as vice president. All decisions are effective immediately.

    Outgoing Defense Minister Hussein Tantawi headed the ruling military council for 17 months after Mubarak's ouster in February 2011. Before that, he was defense minister for nearly two decades under Mubarak. The military council's No. 2, Chief of Staff Sami Annan, was also ordered to retire. But both men were appointed advisers to Morsi, according to state television.

    Radical Salafists considered violent by Germany’s security services have been leaving Germany in droves in the past weeks, wrote the magazine. But rather than traveling to the conflict zone in Pakistan and Afghanistan, they are increasingly heading for Egypt, a high ranking security official told Der Spiegel.
    Yeah, some "nation-building", indeed.
