1. The usual
STEVENYC ,   USA   (11.25.12)
Just the usual double-talk and lies from yet another regime that has seized power and is trying to make it stick. Let's see if Morsi can put one over on the Egyptian public again.
2. Who gets to define "temporary?"
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.25.12)
3. There is nothing more permanent than temporary
Oleg ,   USA   (11.25.12)
4. A passing shadow.....
Morsy ,   NY NY   (11.25.12)
Morsy...if your laws aren't temporary, your presidency will be! 50-60% of the Egyptian populace did not want this Terrorist. The only reason he got elected was because of corruption at the polls. May his presidency end like Ghadaffy's and soon! Egypt needs a Democratic country free of interference from Islamo Crazies!
5. Yeah life is short... Hold on it's going to be a long ride
USA   (11.25.12)
6. Is that like the "Temporary" Illegal Occupation of W. Bank,
Doug ,   Rochester, USA   (11.26.12)
Gaza, Golan Heights, E. Jerusalem?
7. Just like Egypt's "temporary" state of emergency
laura j. ,   USA   (11.26.12)
The latest one, imposed after the assassination of Sadat, lasted 31 years, until the regime fell.
8. There is nothing illegal in West Bank, Gaza and Golan Height
Ron ,   Melbourne, Australia   (11.26.12)
After the Arabs rejected the partition there was never a Palestinian state. Jordan claimed all of the West Bank and more , and the Egypt controlled Gaza as a territory - never establishing a state. In wars which the Arabs decided on they have progressively lost territory - there is no occupation there. There are many territories that have been lost around the world by those who initiated wars. Apart from in the case of Israel the world seems to have chosen to largely ignore this fact. This has been acceptable from time immorial - or should Mexico take part of the US, etc - how far do you go. The Arabs decided not to negotiate - the famous 3 No's in Khartoum. The so called illegal occupation is a applied only in Israel and is therefore wholly discriminatory and selective justice. Justice where you create arbitrary rules, apply them arbitrary and so on - are not Justice. This is no different from the special definition given to Palestinian Refugee - different to every one else in the world !!! - amazing. Ignoring the Jewish refugees is one thing - what about the rights of German Refugees from Eastern Europe (forced relocation after the war (not during)), what about cyrpus where the Eurpean court did not recognise the return,etc, etc. Again and we again we see selective 'Justice' just in the case of Israel - as if flagrant discrimination can ever be defined as justice.
9. Morsi the new Pharoh of Egypt
Haim ,   TA   (11.26.12)
10. egyptians in dire poverty, now another dictator, they had it
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (11.26.12)
better under moobarick, at least they had food and jobs even if low pay.
11. To: No. 6
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.26.12)
No, those are non-sovereign territories which were all acquired in the course of fighting a DEFENSIVE war against Egypt, Syria and Jordan. They are therefore Israel's to do with what she wishes. You will recall that Sinai (also acquired from Egypt) has been returned. East Jerusalem was incorporated into Jerusalem and unified in late June 1967, and the Golan Heights was formally annexed in 1981. Israel has withdrawn from Gaza. Judea and Samaria will be formally annexed fairly soon, and the Arab squatters residing there illegally will be repatriated to Jordan, country of their citizenship. You don't know very much, do you? Perhaps you should invest in acquiring an education so that you don't make such a prize fool of yourself on these threads .....a good place to start would be by studying the difference between the consolidation of all powers by a dictator (Morsi) and the acquisition of non-sovereign territories in the course of fighting a defensive war (Israel). The two have nothing in common, so your analogy is really extraordinarily stupid and entirely irrelevant to the subject of the article.
12. When did a dictator promise temporary?
Robert ,   New Jersey, USA   (11.26.12)
If anyone falls for this, they are deluded or moronic. Strange how obama is silent on this coup de etat. That's because his cheering Morsi loudly might come across as unseemly, as it would have when the mullahs bloodily put down the second Iranian revolution in 2009. After all, obama said, "When the choice falls between the West and Islam, I'm with Islam!' Thank you, American Jews. Your 3 million votes assured this impostor's re-election on Nov 6th!
13. # 12 Robert, NOT this Jew!
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.26.12)
I voted for Romney. As a side note, I do anagrams... Thought you might enjoy this one, M. Romney = Mr. Money....
14. Ron, Melbourne Bravo!
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.26.12)
Great factual history. If I may add a question to your point, as a Jew, who shall we obey, our G-d or some men who are also our enemies? Seems simple to me, we must as Jews obey our G-d who gave Jews the land of Israel. The rules of war and of 'to the victor belong the spoils' and, 'possession is nine tenths of the law' seems as though they never existed when the subject of Israel is mentioned. it would seem only Israel is the 'object' of anti semitic scorn that has not ended since the time of Christ, (and before that also) when have these same people ever saved one Jews life or, even showed fairness on a minimal level towards israel or, her Jews and their faith? I'd say never. Israel owes them zero her first responsibility is the safety of the land and of her people. Thanks for the well written post. Shalom.
15. One of the consequences of 'revolution'. Hunger.
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.26.12)
The people of Egypt seem destined never to be free. Now, to add to their grief is hunger. No tourists and the tourists kept them from starving. "He who bless you I will bless he who curses you I will curse." This is the evidence.
16. hmm, shall he too be dragged through the streets of Cairo?
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.26.12)
Or, will he join Mubarak in a military barrack? Egyptians will never know any peace or freedoms.
17. # 5 For Morsi a short bumpy dark ride.
