I thought he might keep up the pretension of democracy for just a little longer, but no, the Islamist wolf has taken off Granny's mask and exposed himself far more obscenely than if he had completely undressed in front of a crowd. This is it, the naked Isamist, that anyone who knows about Islam knew we'd get from the Arab Spring. Theocracies cannot lead to democracies.

It looks as if the Egyptians have got rid of one dictator only to see him replaced by another, even worse.
Are we seeing the beginning of the Egyptian civil war?

Who can blame the Egyptians for being upset, although they should have seen it coming. Wishful thinking can lead to unhappy conclusions. The Arab Spring's a farce. It's time for the Middle East to take a good, long, honest look at itself, stop blaming everybody else, especially the U.S. and Israel, and take responsibility for its own woes that it has created.

Yeah, right.

And that' not even saying anything about the massive violent, sexual assaults on the women in Tahrir Square by the Islamist men who are sick and tired of the women asking for rights.

These women ought to wear some sort of chastity belts just to protect themselves from these animals.

I wish them well....the Egyptians I met were decent, friendly people.

Of course....they were just "average" folks trying to make a living. The politicians and Muslim Brotherhood have MUCH different agendas.

maybe a form of dictatorship endemic to egypt - remember the pharaohs?

Just as we feared with the Muslim Brotherhood, whose goal is to establish Islam's rule over the whole world, the Egyptian progressive people (a minority unfortunately) would miss the 'good old days' of Mubarak.

This is the same guy that said, when he thought he wasn't being heard, during the campaign that he wanted to begin a 'New Islamic conquest of Egypt' and force Christians (the Coptic Christians are the real Egyptians) to either convert or flee - tens of thousands have and the rest are being persecuted more than ever.

How could our western so-called media and so-called leaders have been so totally blind?

Morsi revealing his true face is like an accelerated version of Muhammad's story. It took Muhammad at least 13 years to start showing his true face in stages, after he declared himself a prophet. Morsi, in a position of power faster than Muhammad was able to be, just took the opportunity to get to the dictatorship level that Muhammad eventually got to.

Muhammad - act peacefully and sound tolerant => get in power => end up a tyrant
Morsi - act peacefully and sound tolerant => get in power => end up a tyrant

Morsi is truly following his false prophet's game plan to the letter.

Once again it is the youth of Egypt in the streets protesting. Morsi is NOT what they had in mind during the first incarnation of the Arab Spring. The brotherhood was not what they had in mind. Replacing one dictator with another was not what they had in mind. True change comes from within, people and countries, and I wish the youth of Egypt success in forcing real reform and realizing the secular government they so ardently desire. That is the real path to peace in the middle east, taking religion out of government. A long and arduous task that will be given how entangled government and religion is in that area of the world.

"We don't want a dictatorship again. The Mubarak regime was a dictatorship. We had a revolution to have justice and freedom," protester Ahmed Husseini was quoted as saying by Reuters news agency.

Well, now the Freedom and Justice Party is in power - how is that for irony?

Obama does not intervene. He is busy condemning construction of several apartment buildings in Israel.
