Obama wanted Mubarak out in Egypt, and wanted the Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi as the new president. The media wanted the same. And much like when Jimmy Carter got Iran to dispose the Shah and replace him with the Ayatollah, things are turning into a disaster. Now, that Pharaoh Morsi has basically assumed dictatorial powers in Egypt, he wants a new constitution that forces Sharia Law on the people in Egypt. Radical Islamists and supporters of Morsi prevented judges from entering the courthouse Sunday to rule on the legitimacy of a disputed constitutional assembly. Oh well. Don’t say we didn’t warn you Egyptians. You wanted it, Obama wanted it, leftists in the media wanted it, and now you got it. Be careful what you wish for next time Muslims.
Egypt’s top court suspended its work indefinitely to protest “psychological and physical pressures” after supporters of the Islamist president prevented judges from entering the courthouse Sunday to rule on the legitimacy of a disputed constitutional assembly.
The decision by the Supreme Constitutional Court is the latest twist in a worsening political crisis pitting President Mohammed Morsi and his allies against the mostly secular opposition and the powerful judiciary. The standoff began when Morsi issued decrees on Nov. 22 that gave him sweeping powers and granted the president — and the constitutional committee — immunity from the courts.
