The demonstration in Sakhnin was organized by the Islamic movement and among the protesters were Mayor Mazen Ghanaim and MK Masud Ganaim (Ra'am-Ta'al). 

 

The Kafr Kanna rally was initiated by a group of students, one of whom reported that the demonstration was held in order to express their sympathy for the Egyptian people "who sacrificed their lives until they managed to topple the corrupt reign of Mubarak. It's hard for me to fathom how the Egyptian people allow the country to go backwards instead of moving forward."

Head of the Sakhnin Islamic movement, Sheikh Ali Abu Ria, added that "The Egyptian people have chosen Morsi and their choice must be honored.

 

"Overthrowing Morsi is a dangerous and irrational move. The army's job is to ensure the people's security and not interfere with politics. It's not possible that the army would make decisions and dictate who the president will be," Abu Ria added.
