Lets face it: this coup was ill-advised. How do you oust a democratically elected president after one year? There is a reason why leaders are given a mandate of five years.


Morsi was declared unfit to hold office by the Supreme Court in Egypt. He was accused of crimes against humanity and was asked to step down which he refused.

If the army had not stepped in, things would have become very bad.


Civil strife.....who wants to get there????

34 people believed to be supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood killed. At least 300 people have also been injured. This coup was ill-advised.

At least 51 people were killed on Monday when the Egyptian army opened fire on supporters of ousted president Mohamed Mursi, in the deadliest incident since the elected Islamist leader was toppled by the military five days ago. Emergency services said 435 people were wounded.

I don’t care how one sugar-coats it; the fact remains that what happened in Egypt early this month was a military coup. Whether or not the military took over the reins of power or handed power to a civilian leadership is not the point. The point is that the military took sides in a conflict, then used the arsenal at its disposal to overthrow the elected leader of a country, even going as far as putting him under house arrest.

This is a military coup by any definition, and it cannot be condoned in societies that claim to be democracies, or which seek to transfer power through democratic means.


When is a coup not a coup and when does a Muslim become an Islamist?

Guns shouldn’t – mustn’t – silence ballots. Either we believe in free elections and democracy, or we don’t. There aren’t in-between or bastardised positions. That’s because a coup against democracy is a “Door of No Return”. It’s like a half pregnancy – it can’t happen. It’s impossible.Applause Applause

Let’s hope the Egyptian military hasn’t opened a door to coups against democratic governments in Africa. I have five incontrovertible reasons every democrat must reject the putsch against Mr Morsy. There are no “ifs,” “ands,” or “buts”.

I agree that politics is a game, but a very serious one. It’s literally sometimes about life – and death. This is the first reason I reject the coup. Political democracy is meant to “civilise” politics, which is war by other means. That’s why we must respect the ballot, or live by the gun.

Democratic choices aren’t only palatable when our ideological soul mates win. Remember the opposition to a Hamas victory in Palestine?

Mr Morsy wasn’t a dictator. Some of his policies were clearly unpopular, but he was popularly elected on a Brotherhood platform. It’s hypocritical to democratically elect a party, and not expect it to carry out some of its policies. A military putsch against a winning party because of its policies sets the stage for counter-coups in the future. It unleashes a cycle of arrests, murders and violent coups – just look at Uganda, DRC, Ethiopia, Somalia, and Madagascar.

with the heavy bloodshed (up to 500 reported killed by army) do the coup backers here still maintain their position?
