Recently, we’d seen a great jostling for access to the reigns of power in Egypt – following the fall of Mubarak. The Army took control of the country, they dissolved the first elected parliament claiming invalid elections, and the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, Morsi, won the Presidency. The Army promptly emasculated the powers of the President and so far the Courts in Egypt had backed him up.
I said back then that in order to see who was really in charge – we’d need to see if Morsi was able to replace the leaders of the Army with his own men. Today it looks like he is in the process of doing just that:
I was skeptical at first since I saw this story only in Debka – but it has been confirmed in Arutz Sheva, and by CNN. We will now be watching whether this decision will stand – and if these new generals are more politically aligned with the radical islamist agenda of Morsi. I am scratching my head, part of me was expecting some fulfillment of the first few verses of Isaiah 19 – now it may appear I was very wrong about that, yet we must wait and see since its still very soon in this new development.
