  •  They still have some popular support. (4+ / 0-)

    A coup, which this essentially is, might force them underground and into armed struggle.  Lots of possibilities here.

    •  yes for sure, some popular support, but (0+ / 0-)

      a dramatic failure in so short a time

      believed that change was an election

      since fist time in thousands of years of history to elect a leader

      but.. drank the cool aid

      the article above by chair of history in American University in Cairo points out how the American Ambassador was involved in the story

      she probably gave assurances that the US would support the Muslim Brotherhood and didn't warn them against autocratic rule

      but, why would the government of the US object to autocratic rule?

      they are perfecting the mechanisms here at home to be ready for the possibility of big things like eco terroristism on KXL

      •  It may get very violent. (4+ / 0-)

        Backers of President Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood have also been out on the streets, gathering outside the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque in Cairo's Nasr district.

        The Brotherhood's political group, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), is part of the alliance of Islamist parties calling on Egyptians to "go and defend their democracy and their right for freedom," according to spokesperson Murad Ali.

        One senior FJP official, Mohammed al-Beltagi, took to the party's Facebook page on Tuesday to say that "preventing this coup may call for martyrdom".

          when I was at NN13, bought a book from the author selling them on a table on the sidewalk near Trader Joe's

          he is an algerian and his novel describes what it was like under the French and then the muslim dictators

          torture

          destruction

          terrible

          he is a a berber - a tribe that ruled northern Africa for 10,000 years and have been invaded many times

          the muslim brotherhood didn't get the right message from the movement that overthrew the dictatorship

          could it be that dialogue is radical?
