Morsi backers plan fresh rallies, defying Egypt's police

CAIRO (AFP) – Supporters of Egypt's ousted president Mohamed Morsi urged fresh rallies on Friday, raising fears of renewed violence as police prepared to disperse them amid international appeals for restraint.

The call came as US Secretary of State John Kerry said the military's removal in July of Morsi -- Egypt's first democratically elected president -- had been requested by millions.

In comments that will be seen in Egypt as supportive of the interim rulers, Kerry told Pakistan's Geo television: "The military was asked to intervene by millions and millions of people, all of whom were afraid of a descendance into chaos, into violence."

"And the military did not take over, to the best of our judgement -- so far. To run the country, there's a civilian government. In effect, they were restoring democracy," he added.

Well done Obama...you’ve stirred the hornets nest yet again. You are the worst president to set foot in the White House. Everything you do is a disaster....unless that’s how you want it to be?

Not that they're willing to openly admit, anyway.

Well yes he has. But the important message here is that Obama has decided that it is time for Morsi to discover the view you get when looking up at the under-carriage of a bus.

That is new news.

My question is: Will the military allow the Muslim Brotherhood to post candidates in the upcoming election? I’m starting to think maybe not. Time will tell.
