Posted on 07/03/2013 7:19:37 AM PDT by lbryce
Egypts top generals summoned civilian political leaders to an emergency meeting Wednesday just hours before the deadline they have set for President Mohamed Morsi to leave power.
President Mohammed Morsi addressed the nation in a televised speech on Tuesday.
Among those called to the meeting was Mohamed ElBaradei, the former United Nations diplomat protesters demanding Mr. Morsis ouster have tapped as one of their negotiators over a new interim government, Reuters reported, citing unnamed official sources.
Mr. ElBaradei has been an outspoken critic of Mr. Morsi and his allies in the Muslim Brotherhood, the Constitution they pushed to a referendum and the previous period of military rule. He has declined to comment in his current position. News agencies reported that top Muslim and Christian religious authorities were invited as well.
Gehad el-Haddad, a Brotherhood spokesman, vowed that the group would not bend in its defiance of the military. The only plan, he said in a statement posted online, is to stand in front of the tanks.

Morsi is now President-for-Life.
We’ll finally get some Justice for Ben Gazhi.
Former SecState Hillary Clinton, the DoS, Obama, the WH, and former UN Amb. Susan Rice. Lots of egg to power wash off these diplomatic light weights.
Want it to get worse? Just wait until SecState John F’ing Kerry injects his diplomatic skills into this mess!
Behind every failed male is the Obama administration is a failed female. A truly equal opportunity administration. Except that they pay the failed females less.
The events are counter revolution to revert to a stable governmnet ruled by rational minds.
Egypt will revert to a stable, secular status. The people have demonstrated in masses never seen before..... no brotherhood zealotry.
I wish they’d hurry up, my popcorns getting cold here.
Well put MG! Bulls Eye!
I was referring solely to Obama.
Your proposal is acceptable.
Hopefully something like Turkey.
But if this turns into a horrible bloodbath, it won’t be on Clinton because ‘rogue underlings’ were responsible,
or Obama because he’s just learning of these things, like the rest of us .....
Tahir Square is not necessarily Tiananmen Square.
"I'm a puppet of CAIR ---> Muzzie Bros. ---> Morsi?"
I just heard about it when I had FR read to me, just like you.
Look to see the Moslim Brotherhood—that Neo-Nazi fanatic Islamist organization broken and surpressed. watch as Obama weeps and maybe sends US troops to support his man in Cairo. The pot has reached a boiling point. Egypt isn’t Iran. hey, any nation that invented Belly Dancing would not be all for the nut case tribalistic customs of fanatic Islam.
