Egypts Islamist-led parliament on Wednesday pushed ahead with a law that could force into retirement many of the nations most senior judges, despite an uproar by the judiciary over fears the presidents allies want to control the courts.
The judiciary, with mostly secular-minded professional judges, is seen by many Egyptians as the one of the only remaining buffers against Islamists monopoly on power following the ouster of authoritarian ruler Hosni Mubarak in 2011. Since then, Islamist parties have swept elections and dominated legislative councils and the presidency.
President Mohammed Morsis Muslim Brotherhood party counters that many judges are holdovers from the Mubarak era who must be replaced. Morsis supporters engaged in violent street clashes last Friday with opponents over calls to cleanse the judiciary.

Sheik Obama (peace be upon him) is watching this situation with great interest, and has told his staff to prepare the necessary executive orders.

Fighting Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood within a system rigged by the Islamists is ultimately futile. The only way to fight the religious dictatorship is the usual one in the Middle East and probably a loser for the minority. Obama must be very proud of what he has wrought in Egypt and Libya. Soon he will have the MB and other transnational terrorists in charge in Syria, too. The Greater Caliphate marches on.

Arab Spring? There are still nearly 10 million Christians there - I guess it’s game over for them.
Maybe Mubarak wasn’t so bad after all...

This is great...more Christian repression and murders. Let’s send them more money from the American taxpayer. n That makes sense under the nobama caliphate.
