Thousands of Egyptians flooded the streets on Friday (February 1st) in a mostly peaceful show of opposition to President Mohamed Morsi after a week of a wave of deadly unrest swept the country.

Opposition groups had called for peaceful protests on Friday, which they dubbed "Day of Deliverance" to demand a unity government and an amendment to the recently approved constitution.

The protests came a day after rival factions condemned the violence of recent protests and called for a national dialogue

Thousands also marched in the Mediterranean port of Alexandria and the canal city of Port Said, which was at the heart of last week's clashes after 21 residents were sentenced to death over football-related violence a year ago.

    Shame on everyone who claims to be a patriot and to love the homeland, but who treads in a place where he already knows that this situation will result in destruction and ruin in Egypt, not anywhere else. The Security National Front is causing events that will destroy the economy of Egypt, and the people are the only victims.

    This is a bit of advice from an Arab citizen to Dr. Morsi, Egypt's president. Please do not have pity or mercy on those mercenaries, and be firm with this "Front of Destruction" and other traitors. Do not be patient. You are required to regain the prestige of the state and prevent any demonstrations. Your people proved that they do not deserve mercy or democracy. So, be a fair dictator; that is better than a weak president. They just want to take your poor people back to the reign of fear, so strike without mercy and let them be a lesson to others. As for the "Front of Destruction", do not have mercy or pity on them, as they are traitors and agents who want to destroy Egypt so they can swoop into power. Please do not have mercy on them.

    Unfortunately, now I am convinced that the elected President Morsi is unfit to rule Egypt because of his carelessness with the advocates of sedition. He is a legitimate and elected president, and he should be firm with them, not ignore them. Egypt needs a strong president who knows how to deal firmly with crises, unlike the kind president, Dr. Morsi. Personally, I love Dr. Morsi and I think he is a good man, but this is not enough to be Egypt's president, where the fires of sedition are spreading everywhere. He shouldn't ignore those mobs, and I think that in the history of mankind, all revolutions have succeeded only by shedding blood.

    The Black Bloc group was made by the Muslim Brotherhood to discredit the opposition and to make them lose their popularity among the people, and to prepare the ground for their detention and the fabrication of charges against them, or for their assassination.

    Each one is seeking his own benefits. What is the right to demonstrate? Whenever you have the right to demonstrate, you then have a responsibility to maintain the facilities, not to destroy them and shout. As long as I have a right, I have a responsibility as well, and it is my responsibility to protect my country. We really deserve the previous regime and Habib Al Adly, as we do not do anything unless it is by force. God created some people for liberty, but unfortunately we do not have the culture for anything, not even freedom. We are people who can only be led with a stick.

    What happens when ministers are replaced,.. just the ministers, not the entire ministry..... I think that it is the same program, but the new ministers must be more efficient, more experienced and bolder in making decisions.... And this, God willing, is what we expect.,.. till the next parliament is formed, which will be a representative of the next government that will adopt a clear and a specific program as to where Egypt is going, and decide whether it will join the ranks of the developed countries, or whether it will have fighting opposition parties and go into the gutter.

    The fear barrier has been shattered.. and at the forefront are the youths from whom we learn about the communications and information revolution.. and they do not fear death.. Egypt will slap its enemies on their faces, and it will teach the whole world.. that it is like it had taught the world in the past.. it will teach it today that it is the ‘Mother of the World’.. and that the DNA of Thutmose III and Ramses II are alive and strong in their blood.. and that these little kids, as the Muslim Brotherhood referred to them, are the progeny of a people who said about themselves: We are a people that have ruled the world.. and it grew up while time was still a baby in the cradle.

    Seriously, this is an extremely disgusting thing that we have seen take place during the recent events in Egypt. Everyone is trying to appear in the picture in order to prove that they are the good guy and that the other side is the bad guy that we really do not want to have, as if there is a fierce competition where everyone is trying to win the battle in order to secure their own interests. I don’t see anything good, since if someone wins that supposedly means they are the good guy that cares for the country. If we care for the country, we would never need to show that we are doing so. On the contrary, supposedly of we have any objective or goal to reform the country, or if any official can do anything in his power, they are supposed to do it. Enough with this backwardness! The most important thing for us is to appear in the picture. Seriously, it is a very hard thing for me to watch that youth that was dragged in the area surrounding the Ettihadiya Presidential Palace, and this image is stuck in my mind, and I can’t forget it, despite the fact that this young man contradicted all the expectations. An incident like this should have completely turned things upside down, because the world would see that the Egyptian people were undergoing a real crisis. But what happened was that that man, with all backwardness, said that this didn’t happen, and that the security forces were saving him, as if all that we have seen are Photoshopped images. Seriously, the dignity of the Egyptian person has become like dirt. I pity the dignity of the Egyptians. Only Allah is immortal, O Egypt! As for you, you’re done, because all the elements that exploit every situation for their own benefit, and those paying the price are the Egyptian people.

    They say that Dr. Morsi is the legitimate president of Egypt, and I agree with them, but he reached power when we held back.. and if he really loves us and the country as he claims, he would hold himself back.. and he would form a salvation government and remove the general prosecutor.. Fear Allah regarding Egypt.. and praise is due to Allah, always.

    The fact that a “national salvation government” is not being formed is due to the lack of a deep opposition in these ministries and the fact that they do not have a popular base. Yesterday, he stated on the Al-Ghad Al-Arabi channel that the Muslim Brotherhood does not want to form a ‘national salvation government’ because they will win, and they form the majority in the next elections and that they will form the next government on their own. Hence, we know that the Muslim Brotherhood has decided everything, even the elections results. A weak security force is in the interests of the Muslim Brotherhood so that this would be a pretext to form a Muslim Brotherhood Revolutionary Guard. Things have become exposed, but Egypt is a hard piece of dough that will be difficult to mold, and its people are valiant and they are builders of civilizations without violence, and they can take over the various institutions of the state. The coming battle is with the judiciary, and all the judges that go against the political agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood will be struck down.

    The Friday of Deliverance, I would like to know when that deliverance will come. Every Friday we have to hear about the name of that particular Friday, one time it’s the Friday of Anger, another time it’s the Friday of Deliverance, and yet another time it’s the Friday of Restoration of Rights, and there’s nothing that gets done. It appears that what used to be effective during the era of Mubarak will never prove to be that way in Morsi’s era, because the demonstrations are the same without any difference, there are victims and demonstrators dying. The whole nation wants to live in peace and they want to be provided with everything they need, and they don’t want anything else. So, it is right for the whole world to remain silent regarding what is going on around us. A single martyr among those that died on the Friday of Deliverance should have been enough for Morsi and his government to leave office, because he promised the people that there will be no turmoil, and that the people will live a good life under his government, but it appears that things are the complete opposite of that, and we all feel that way. When something happens like what took place on Friday and the demonstrator who was stripped naked, Allah only knows who took his clothes off, and also the rough treatment that the security forces meted out to that individual, and the extent of violence and harshness, and we have all witnessed that event, and in spite of this there is no concern being raised about this, and all the media have shown this image, and they were demanding the authorities, and all the authorities came up with different decisions, but in the end Allah knows what will happen. Everyone is throwing the responsibility at each other. Since you’re not up to the responsibility, so why did you want to have it to start with? I think that there are many factors that have contributed to what is taking place in the Square, and that there are elements that have infiltrated, whether they are thugs or not, but we should know that our country’s call on us is for us to protect it and make it more calm and secure, instead of exacerbating the crisis and going around setting fire to the presidential palace and buildings. What else are we going to do?

    The Friday of Deliverance! I would like to know when that deliverance will come. Every Friday we have a new call for demonstrations under a different title, one time it’s the Friday of Anger, another time it’s the Friday of Deliverance, and yet another time it’s the Friday of Restoration of Rights, and there’s nothing that gets done.

    The Muslim Brotherhood took power, which is an opportunity they have been waiting to seize for 52 years, and they have continued to plot and scheme against the previous leaders of Egypt, such as Abdel Nasser, Sadat and Mubarak, but they failed. In fact, they even carried out attempted assassinations, one of which succeeded and resulted in the assassination of Sadat, but they did not succeed in gaining power except currently through free and democratic elections. But they made use of all kinds of tricks, such as buying off people and using fake slogans. Will they relinquish power after that, even part of it? I don’t think so.

    My question is simple: Why doesn’t the opposition wait patiently until the parliamentary elections are held? And if the people elect them, then good for them and for the Egyptian people, but if the people reject them, then this is their destiny, and they will have to wait patiently until the presidential elections and then run their candidates for office. If they lose in every round as usual, then let them wait until the next elections, but if they win, then congratulations to you, fish. Patience is beautiful. May Allah have mercy on you, O Umm Kulthum. If you were with us we would win.

    Enough with undermining the prestige of the State… Enough with conspiring against the President! He is the symbol of the State, even if we disagree with him. We could take legal action against him like we did against Mubarak and let the Judiciary try him. The governmental organizations including the presidential palaces belong to the people and are the symbol of the State and part of its history. There are other ways to object and to call for change. However, violence is both unacceptable and illegal. The demonstrators usually end up their protests in the streets by some punishable acts such as burning facilities, stealing and burning court documents. Whenever, the policemen, who are entrusted with protecting those facilities, defend those public properties, they are accused of being murderers and killers. The protestors call on the authorities to bring the policemen “involved” immediately to justice, along with the Prime Minister and the President of the Republic. Don't these hypocrites and liars along with the destructive filthy media realize that if the security man fails to perform his duty, and the facility he is protecting gets broken into, he will be tried in a military court? Fear God, while dealing with Egypt! The authorities must stand firmer against the criminals, and enough with undermining our intelligence. A few masked young thugs have become an organization that destroys the country and intimidates everyone. None could arrest them. They are receiving support from domestic parties. The latter must stop them.

    Protecting the homelands from the extremism of secularism is not the responsibility of the authority or Islamists alone, given that the objective does not relate to positions only but to nations which agree on devastating them in order to impose specific ideologies. Therefore, peoples must come out to defend their wills and their homelands and face the projects of usurpation and destruction. We should note here that going out does not aim to support a President or a political party, but to protect the nation from collapse.

    During her participation in the Tahrir demonstrations, Artist Maysara declared that she does not care for the fatwas of murder which are issued by some Islamists and she will continue going out to Tahrir Square.

    The acts which are taking place represent a depletion of the country which aims to wreak havoc in it. These demonstrations are not serving political aims and if the objective is political, they would have prepared for the elections. I wonder where the law is and how they allow them to throw stones and Molotovs at the Police. This is really a systematic process.

    Most of the Egyptian people support the civil state, which is based on the democracy and its mechanisms especially the ballot boxes. This is the only honest reference and under the supervision of the fair judiciary. This process decides who rules and if we considered the democratic regimes in the world, we would find that the Untied States adopts the ballot box as the referee. Why go far? We have the American University of Cairo, it is run democratically, and all of its programs, plans, and curricula defend the democracy and study the history of the peoples, the elite, and the foundations of the civil state in the best possible way. Hence, we should not forget this.

    This is a message from a respectable police officer to the demonstrators across the country. There is no need for what you do. All you need is to organize sit-ins for five days at large numbers and you would be able to topple any regime. This should be accompanied with civil disobedience and blocking the roads so that the people will not go to their work.

    When you see that the situation in Egypt deteriorates every day after the inability to provide solutions or compromise in the foreseeable future, you can easily say that the situation has become dangerous. Hence, I would like to suggest this solution and many other solutions to the different cases. President Mursi cannot run the state in this way, and if he continues, the situation would be more difficult. Even the security solution would fail. Hence, Mursi must stop this approach, which is based on misunderstanding of the meaning of legitimacy that made him lead the country towards the abyss and he made all these wrong decisions that made him an unsuccessful president. Mursi is required to start a new phase without preconditions and he must evoke his decisions and disagreements with the others. Mursi wants a new Egypt or new Muslim Brotherhood. This choice is very important and if Mursi adopted the project of the Muslim Brotherhood, he will be responsible for many victims and blood, but this is really the last thing he wants now. On the other hand, Mursi will be a hero if he saved the country from this mess. All that is required from him is to achieve justice and to revoke his decisions. Fairness requires engaging all the parties in the administration of the country and determining its fate. In this critical stage, Mursi went away from the people depending on the legitimacy. This strategy led to chaotic decisions and demonstrations. Mursi is the only one who has solutions. He should not ask the National Salvation Front or any other party to attend the dialogue while he insists on his mistakes. This is illogical, because Mursi is required to say that all that disturbs the situation in Egypt will be revoked and let us discuss everything and agree about the future of Egypt. There is no other solution because the alternative is the collapse of Egypt economically. Why does Mursi refuse to change the government? It is irrevocable destiny. Mursi failed in all the previous stages and continuity of the failure and the consequences would be catastrophic. Mursi would be the first one who suffers losses. The state will end and he will find nothing to preside over.

    The most dangerous thing is that the Muslim Brotherhood claims that they are religiously committed, but this is untrue. That is because if they had been religious, they would have applied the hadiths of Prophet, peace be upon him, regarding the prohibition of assigning a job to unqualified people. Egypt suffers because of appointing the unsuccessful Prime Minister Hisham Qandil as prime minister and the insistence of president Morsi on keeping this unsuccessful government. Morsi must admit the failure of the government and correct the course. In addition, he is required to stop the thugs in the mass media who encourage the thugs who attack the Al-Ithadiyah Palace by referring to them as the demonstrators. They say that the demonstrators blocked the roads rather than saying that they are thugs. The thugs attacked Sidi Jaber police station in all the possible ways, but the mass media describe them as demonstrators. The thugs of the Black Bloc attack the Al-Ithadiyah Palace with Molotov bombs and set fire to gate 4, however, the mass media describe them as demonstrates. Hitler, the criminal, once said, “Give me a people without conscience and I will give you people without awareness”. This is the situation.

I appeal to the Egyptian people to reform the popular committees to get rid of these criminals as long as the security forces are betraying the country for the third consecutive time. I do not want to popular committees to kill these criminals but they should arrest them and hand them over to the police stations or the armed forces units, which are more reliable and more loyal to Egypt.

    During the fifties and sixties, whenever families in the Arab world welcome a newborn baby boy, they used to give him the name Abdul Naser to the extent that a family acquaintance named his newborn girl Misriyah (Egyptian). This is because he couldn’t have a baby boy and everyone was astonished by that name. But in this era of President Morsy, Egypt is bleeding and this is the worst period in Egypt’s history. Mursy must also be tried like Mubarak on charges of killing protesters.

Why don’t we give him some time and hold him accountable later on? Are you afraid of his success? What else would you do if you were in his place? Is this not what you want and what you are pursuing? I ask god to guide our president. You should take care of Egypt because you will not know its value unless you live abroad. I’m not a member of the Muslim Brotherhood but I’m a young Egyptian who works in Kuwait. I hope god will relief Egypt of its affliction and know that the soil of Egypt is more valuable than all palaces of the Arabs.

    It is saddening that there have been over 23 cases of rape and sexual molestation during the last 25th January. Despite this, the so-called Salvation Front and their media machine (they own over 10 popular TV channels) didn’t say a word nor did they talked about these tragic events and crimes against women!!! They started addressing the issue only yesterday when international women advocates discussed the matter, unveiled it and denounced it!!! What is more saddening is that instead of finding a solution for the problem or securing a protection mechanism for women in the Tahrir Square, they started pointing fingers at certain individuals. But we are really fearful over women and their safety.

    So, would you still resist when the entire population revolt and chant: No to Morsy? I honestly think this is a relative tenacity and I believe that the Muslim Brotherhood is also dominating the Egyptian Stock Exchange market. The Muslim Brotherhood has bought a large number of shares with money received from Qatar in order to stabilize the stock market and thwart further decline at this point in time. Politics is indeed a dirty business and we must expect that it could throw any filthy thing at us. I think that the stock market will collapse, and I am not saying this because I’m a pessimist or an Egyptian who dislikes his country. The reason is that the large number of casualties points out that there will inexorably be a second revolution. No one in the world can convince me that the death of these people will be in vain. On the contrary, their death will trigger a huge response that could make Morsy end up like Mubarak or even worse. If this happens, we could witness a massive civil war between the opposition and the Islamists. Therefore, no one should try to convince me that the stock market will remain stable or investments will be steady or anything like that. Everyone wants to say that Egypt has collapsed but they are trying to be patient and optimistic. As for the government, it resorts to lying so that the nation would not collapse for real, but the truth is harsh and bitter and the situation must be redressed. The Egyptian economy is dying and no one cares. Everyone who has a demand is taking to the streets, which results in the chase that we see on the street. Therefore, neither the stock market nor the economy will be at bay from these things. Dear brothers, the economy and politics are not mutually exclusive. Hence, if there is security, stable politics and people are working, the economy will thrive in all aspects and the stock market will increase in value. But if the opposite is true, then no one should blame other than himself.

    1 - The Egyptians who sparked the Revolution had completely different ambitions from the Muslim Brotherhood. It seems that those revolutionaries will not give up that easily .2 – The January 25 Revolution continues and the Egyptians in the streets are claiming the demands they had called for in the beginning of 2011. Mubarak was forced to step down because he realized that the army is not ready to defend his regime 3 – The Brotherhood did not abide by the promises they had given in the beginning where they vowed not to seek to control the Parliament and not to nominate a candidate to the Presidency of the Republic 4 - The revolutionaries are basically young Egyptians who have nothing to do with the Brotherhood. Those young men represent the “remnants” of civilization and evolution in Egypt .5 - The Revolution was usurped when the Brotherhood militia was deployed in the streets to control them. 6 – The brotherhood was not contented with usurping the Revolution. They negotiated with the military leaders on the post-Mubarak era and made the required promises to ensure that the army would abandon the former President .7 – The Brotherhood did not respect their promises to the military command. They also managed to get rid of the officials who were said to be loyal to the former regime. Of course, they replaced them by pro Brotherhood officers .8 – The issue is related to subtle problems in Egypt that could be solved only through nationwide talks which take into account the needs of Egypt, the most populous Arab country .9 - The Brotherhood does not realize that there are twenty million Egyptians below the poverty line. The slogans would not address the problem of population growth. 10 – They call on tourists to visit Egypt without a clear agenda to take into account the atmosphere that tourists are looking for .11 - Egypt is marred by endless problems such as poor education, agriculture, industry, banking, financial houses, corruption, unemployment and water shortage. Those problems will come to the surface sooner or later .12 - Who can invest in Egypt in light of the current climate? There is a total absence of the rule of law 13 – The Brotherhood has nothing to offer to the Egyptian citizens. The fact that they failed to maintain the exchange rate and the activity of the stock market and share price prove their incompetence.14 – The Brotherhood did not contribute to the foundation and development of the democratic system away from the dominance of a single party on.....

    The national and the international parties are reluctant to give you the full chance to rule Egypt, as appropriate. The ignorant now think they know politics. They are criticizing you for the sake of criticism. Dear intellectuals, where are you now from the days of the rule of Mubarak? You used to flatter Mubarak in your poems and now you are calling for a revolution for no reason. You want to persuade others that Morsi is too incompetent to rule Egypt. The real fact is that one of the most important reasons behind the stumbling of Egypt is unnecessary revolutions.

    A U.S. newspaper wrote: “The crowds in the Egyptian street have nothing to do with the revolution that toppled the deposed President.” The newspapers described them as “gangs of saboteurs, the remnants of the ousted regime and corrupt elements of the police force.” The proof is that the crowd committed 23 crimes of gang rape, mostly in Tahrir Square. The perpetrators were actually criminal gangs who support the "Ruin Front" of Egypt. O God, destroy their homes as they want to ruin Egypt. O Allah, make their plotting backfire at them, and let them destroy each other.

    It seems to the reader / listener of this news, at first glance, from Egypt the Revolution and the State, from Tahrir Square the symbol of popular revolution that toppled down the dictator and his miserable and desperate regime, that the problem today probably lies, as may be understood, in the sexual assaults and abuse against women in the country. What about the proportions of these crimes in Egypt and what if statistics offices in Egypt compare the numbers to those in other countries? This is not the first time that this news has been fabricated since a French newspaper had come with a similar story last year in Tahrir Square.

    Democracy has famous fixed rules, namely the respect for the people’s choice. Those who do not appreciate this have to change the situation through ballot boxes which are fixed at specific times within the game of democracy. Where are you, madam, from those who want to turn against the people by force? Would you let them climb the walls of the house and throw Molotovs?

    "The Muslim Brotherhood should have been the first to seek the law and legalize their status after the revolution, according to the current laws, as did the Shar'ia Association and others. Others head from the square to the Parliament, but they are trying to issue a law for themselves. This will create an argument with other political powers, as there was a conflict over the Constitution.”…// Kamal El Helbawi, the former Brotherhood leader.

    Tawfik Okasha expressed his sorrow because he has reliable information; among other things, there are plots that are being planned by the Israeli enemy to occupy Egypt. He added that these plans are being carried out without any difficulty; he pointed out that the silent majority are the cause. Okasha assured us that he did not blame the silent majority for not demonstrating last Friday, because of the bad weather conditions, which prevented many citizens from demonstrating, despite the large numbers that were there in the squares. He said that next Friday will witness participation by the silent majority in the demonstration to resolve matters with the Brotherhood.

    The whole world realizes what is going on in Egypt! Thugs are everywhere; some people were paid in order to ruin and destabilize the country. So, what has President Mohamed Morsi got to do with the story of the man who was dragged? Why do they want him to be held accountable? Does this mean that tomorrow Morsi will be accused? Enough with your silliness! Let the man work and fulfill his promises!

    Disagreement between the street and the ruling regime in Egypt has increased, especially with the police, who unfortunately follow Mubarak and El Adly's attitude, as if the people are gathering yesterday's papers to put them in today's file. The one who is gone is Mubarak, but Morsi came with the same system of tyranny, oppression and injustice, and there is talk about dialogue with no dialogue! It is important that the leader speaks and the subjects listen and obey! Therefore, the demonstrators prepared for the day of salvation from Morsi, the same as they did two years ago with Mubarak. But unfortunately, the response of the Egyptian government was extremely tough against these protesters and demonstrators, ignoring any previous agreements and even the Al Azhar document, which had been prepared and produced 24 hours before the day of salvation. The relations and the way the police deal with the people didn't change. There are many proofs of that; one of them is the killing of one of the demonstrators, shooting him in the chest. His name was Mohamed Qourah, known as Kristie. And there were a hundred and two wounded. It did not stop at this, but the police car which dragged Hamada Saber did the same to a girl. The police handle these situations with all cheap means; therefore, the dragged Hamada appeared on television, saying that the police did not hurt him! This is a danger alarm which assures us that the Brotherhood is dealing with everything, as they buy votes with oil, sugar and meat. The conscience is bought by tempting people with jobs or silence, or telling them that they will do such and such. This is not freedom at all, and anyone who wants to commit such violations should not speak in the name of Islam or religion, because anyone who behaves like this is someone who has mean, cunning plans which should not be related to Islam in any way!

    An expert who belongs to the former regime told the truth: The truth is revealed and falsehood is dead; he said that there is a counter-revolution to the January 25th Revolution from the triple evil and the followers of the former regime: Amr Mousa, ElBaradei and Sabahi and their followers of the media people along with other pundits like this expert. Where was he during the days of Mubarak? This shows that Morsi's era is the most democratic, because the media keeps insulting, abusing, inciting and throwing accusations against the Brotherhood, as if the Brotherhood were not human; as if none of them has the right to win the elections or to rule! It is hypocrisy! They want to cease power. But they will not win, because God is with the truth! He waits, but He does not neglect!

They want to elevate themselves among the Arab nations, build a strong, powerful economy, etc. In the end, you will get no results and you'll turn your pure revolution into a bloody one.

We are losing Egypt already and we have lost our way! I think we really need to get Egypt back; we should not leave it like this! Shame on you, really, for harming Egypt in this way! What did Egypt do to its people? Why are you harming it? Egypt wants stability and safety and does not want anything at all! It is to be expected that the people should try to work on whatever needs to be done to fix the community, and enough with the injustice!

    It seems that we are living in the era of the Mamelukes. No one should say that they love Egypt because those who have money are complaining to the poor and are saying that their livelihoods are in stagnation. If you turn on the radio, you would hear them say that those who love their country should go out and work, but the jobs are nowhere to be found. Also, what about the traffic congestion in the streets, which gives the impression that there are no problems in the country? Likewise, the foreign currency reserves of the country is dwindling and also the hotel crisis came out of the blue. That is why I’m saying it seems we are living in the era of the Mamelukes.

    I ask God to safeguard the decency of our women and all Muslim women. The ladies and girls who go to Tahrir Square must gather at the center of the Square in the vicinity of the revolutionists' tents. The revolutionists should also guard the women and consider them like their sisters because all of this is meant to taint the image of the revolutionists so that they can say at the end that the revolutionists are raping the girls. This will give the government the right to evacuate the Square under the pretext of protecting the girls from molestation. May God protect Egypt.

    When any leader of any faction calls for a one-million man demonstration or a protest for some purpose and sometimes for no purpose, it seems that he invites people who have canceled their minds and hearts. They respond as if he invites them to a Nilotic picnic or a journey to ancient locations rather than clashes, smoke, blood, stones and destruction of properties. Those people are being driven like herds without will or mind and it has nothing precious, despite the fact that the cost of their precipitation is very high whether they afforded it or made the others afford it. I wish that all those who became addicted to the demonstrations that everything may backfire if it exceeded the proper limits. Those who participate in the fraternity, or what they call parties these days, must be sure that his blood, honor and life worth nothing for the organizers of these journeys. Practically speaking, the purpose will not be achieved because the street pressures are no longer effective. This should remain the axis of the dialogue between the Egyptians. Those who do not know how to sit to the negotiation table to try to reach compromises and offer concessions, then he must know that he has no ability to present his idea and that he cannot discuss what he wanted. Therefore, he must rebuild his ideas to attract the other parties of the dialogue. He also must listen carefully to the deluge partners and he must be willing to understand and interact. Gentlemen, the people are bored and the people will never participate for personal interests with limited horizon and weak results. Pay attention because the current situation in Egypt means endless losses to you. O God! We have conveyed the message. O God! Bear witness.

    History will record the heroic stances of Mubarak no matter how some people tried to obliterate the facts. Mubarak received Egypt while its Arab relations were in its worst conditions. Hence, he succeeded in restoring the Arab League to its headquarters in Cairo and made all the Arab states, especially the GCC recruit the Egyptian workers, engineers, and doctors. On the other hand, president Mursi succeeded in defending their relationships with Hamas. The difference is great. Mubarak allowed the Egyptian workforce to go to the Gulf States for the first time. However, president Mursi curtailed the relationships with the Arab states.

Of course, we need some stability for him to be able to implement his program, but my question is, why doesn't President Morsi resign and organize early elections when he and the opposition can compete again? In this way, he would prove to the world that the opposition that makes all this hurly burly has no credit on the ground. Erdoğan has taken a similar step and he succeeded in showing the real size of the opposition. He then gave full rein to his policies to succeed. I wish that Morsi would do this.

This means that the Brotherhood and Morsi have lost their ability and their confidence; so it would be better for Morsi to confess that he can't bear this responsibility and to spare himself and the country more pain. The question that needs to be asked is: Is Morsi actually a person who cares about the country and who really loves it? I doubt it!

Is Obama's rule legitimate or not? If America rose up against him, I don't think he would tell them that there are red lines that they cannot cross. I think he would listen to the people and resign, which is not the case here. They care about the chair, not the Egyptian people, nor do they even think about serving the people.

I also wonder whether we want to obtain the rights of the martyrs who have died in the Port Said incident or the rights of the children who died in the Asyout train accident. I wonder whether we want the right of the soldiers who died in the accident of Badrsheen, the rights of the ladies who have been raped in Tahrir Square, the rights of the youth who are murdered everyday in the Tahrir Square or the innocent citizens who are dragged and undressed in public. I wonder what these people have done. They are Egyptian citizens who wanted to express their citizenship. We are sorry Mr. President, as people say, they are also citizens and they are deprived and they should not reach such situation. It is really disgusting and I wonder how they dare do these acts against citizens. I wonder whether they have no mercy since people are beaten and dragged in such an ugly way.

However, after four months of the demonstrations and conflict with the constitutional court as well as the judges’ club, I understood that the objective was to destroy the Egypt and all the Egyptians are required to wait for the coming elections to fail the conspiracy of destruction of Egypt. The opposition leaders must prove that they are with the democracy and that they give precedence to the interests of Egypt.

All types of violence, murder and riots that took place at Tahrir Square, Port Said, Suez and Alexandria prove that we need someone to explain to us why this happened after signing the Al-Azhar’s Document to end the violence in the Egyptian street. Indeed, we need someone to explain to us what is happening around us. Where is the President who promised the people to take care of their interests? Where is the promise you made to fix in a hundred days what has been destroyed? The people believed you and elected you, but you forgot all the promises and did not even try to explain why this happened or tell us about the conditions. You must have the courage to come out and tell the Egyptian people why you reached this point. Look to the other Arab presidents, let alone the Western presidents, who only think about how to develop their countries and establish development projects in order to improve the living conditions of the citizens rather than leaving them to face their destiny. I know that every country has poverty, but the poverty has increased in our country and exceeded all the limits. The rich people in Egypt are very few. In the UAE and Jordan, they provide the poor with money as grants to be able to live. However, in Egypt each one has to depend on himself in light of the lack of employment opportunities. In the end, we start wondering about the cause of the increase of the crime rate in Egypt. I call on the Egyptian people in the square and say to them that it seems that the Muslim Brotherhood has forgotten all their promises once they assumed the power. They insist on remaining on power and this is very clear from the speeches of Morsi. We ask God to help us in the coming days.

However, I wish that you will not hide anything and be brave like the girl, which was raped and appeared on the TV to narrate how she was raped. Second, you consider that the destructive National Salvation Front can demonstrate as they wish, but this is not the case for the Islamists‎. The President of the Republic of Egypt Mohamed Morsi was not chosen by thugs, but by the Egyptian people for the first time in the Egyptian history.

    What is the difference between a peaceful demonstration and barbarianism of expression? Is this the outcome of excessive freedom, or of having been suppressed for so many years?

    A call for a demonstration ends with stones and injuries! Can this farce stop and can we open Tahrir and other closed streets and roads, and can each one go to his own work? Enough of the delay and the playfulness; think about our image in front of the whole world!

    “Friday of salvation”; that is just the proper name, but tell me: salvation from what? I guess the situation in Egypt is sad, because we cannot find the proper solution to all the violations that take place. I really think that if there were a true democracy in Egypt, we would not have such injuries among the demonstrators. But the fact is that everyone exploits the situation for his own personal interests; each side sends some people to turn the peaceful demonstrations into something else. All this is happening for the sake of some personal categorical or partial goals; in the end, each side accuses the other side of causing this chaos and these riots. Even the government and the security forces accuse each other or put the blame upon the lower ranks, and thus they achieve their goals. Nevertheless, no one could say anything or prove the charges against the suspects. O God, protect Egypt, because the Egyptians are the ones who pay the price! By the way, whatever happens, President Mohammed Morsi will never quit or step down, because when the Brotherhood gets hold of something, you know what happens!

    Bringing Morsi down means taking down the Islamic movement with all its factions, and this will not happen, because they are the real power in the street. The rest are remnants and media agitators who supported Mubarak's regime, and who now claim having honor and patriotism.

    The President was legally elected and you can replace him in the next election, if you can. Did you know that he made the presidential term 4 years instead of 6, and that he can be reelected twice instead of many times, which drove Sabbahi, Barad'I and the remnants crazy?

Who funds them? Who benefits from them? To what extent are America, the Jews and the newborn Persian nation involved? Even the Turks are trying to found an entity and a nation for themselves.

    Morsi has his own good and bad sides, but if he steps down as a result of these pressures which mystify rational people, history will record that the first and last democratic experience that Egypt ever knew was created by the revolutionists and was destroyed by the revolutionists. With the fall of Morsi, Egypt will be in need of a new Pharaoh to straighten things out.

    I can only say to Morsi that he failed us and Islam. Do you not know that if you had stood with the Muslims, who supported you and whom you promised to apply the Sharia, they would have supported you even if it cost them their lives? However, you sent a message that Islam is cheap just to please the minority of the Egyptian society that isn't equal to the Arabs of Egypt. Were you afraid of the Black Bloc gangs? We seek God's help and support! May God curse all those who conspire against the Muslims until the Day of Judgment.

    The administrators of the Tahrir platform announced their rejection of ElBaradei's initiative, arguing that the Salvation Front did not represent them, and that they reject any negotiation with the current system before toppling it, the protesters said that "the politicians who negotiate with the Presidency in the name of revolution only represent their currents and partisan interests".

They claim that the constitution does not authorize the attorney general to issue a summon for arresting "unknown" individuals.

    At first, we rejoiced at your revolution, dear Egyptians. We drew the attention of the peoples to your civilized way of dealing with the events of the revolution. Then, the Egyptians showed much patriotism. Unfortunately, the bright image has changed quickly. We witnessed the dictatorship of the masses. The oppositions resorted to demonstrations in streets upon the slightest disagreements with the Government. The nation should not be governed as such, O Salvation Front. You are ruining our precious Egypt. Shame on you! You are responsible before God and before the people of Egypt. You should return to serious talks. Leave the streets. The scene of the demonstrations does not fit Egypt and its people. O Allah, Protect Egypt!

    It is really sad to see the Arab citizens abuse, destroy and spread anarchy in their country. In fact, those peoples, namely Egypt, the largest Arab country, had been dreaming of the eruption of a revolution to overthrow the Arab dictatorial and corrupt regimes to restore their freedom and their dignity. Today, the peoples realized that the dictatorial regimes in the Arab world were better than the freedom of the people. The reality on the ground is gloomier than the nightmare.

    When the majority of Egyptians agree on approving something whether it was a constitution; a president or any other issue, neither a judge nor the opposition or even the president are entitled to face the will of a nation. This is democracy. This court may have a value before the referendum but now the least thing to be said that it is a disregard of the will of the nation. What if the court has advocated the unconstitutionality? Who is the owner of the supreme will: is it the court or the people?

    All those who demonstrate after the Revolution are thugs who want to wreak havoc in Egypt. The biggest mistake is to let them hold demonstrations since some criminal members infiltrate them. Unfortunately, the media have promoted them after the Revolution and this represents the largest criminal plan to destroy Egypt. I wonder why we do not unite if we care about the development of Egypt. I also wonder why those who have any suggestion or demand do not follow legitimate ways and respect each other. Unfortunately, this does not happen.

    Thus, the revolution has officially failed because it brought about people who were linked to the former regime and who refused to participate in the revolution. They joined, after they were sure of its success, in order to reap its fruits, taking advantage of people's poverty and ignorance. They paid for their votes to implement the scheme of empowerment and to take control of Egypt eventually.

    The State of Egypt was in a shameful position on the Salvation Friday. I just wanted to know who they are trying to get rid of exactly. Mohammed Morsi has been the President elect for seven months. This means that a few useless thugs who are serving the interests of a third party think that they could overthrow Morsi. Egypt is plagued by anarchy, which is attributable to the popular trend. I do not want to accuse specific persons but I could confirm that they are all seeking power. Accordingly, they are inciting the citizens to overthrow the new regime. They should not behave as such towards the Egyptian people. In fact, they were supposed to support President Morsi and hold negotiation with his party in meetings. Unfortunately, the opposition leaders prefer the media talks where they could incite the public opinion through overzealous cries. We watched the crowds at the Ettihadyia. The scenes were both shameful and disgusting. They claim that the demonstrations are peaceful but the participants are carrying Molotov Cocktails. They also throw stones and attack the policemen, in addition to obscene gestures. Some views claim that the State must guarantee the right to demonstrate. I am sorry, but the State should not protect the ill-mannered and the thugs. And we still call them revolutionaries. Do not tell me that Mohamed Morsi was supposed to host them in the Castle and offer them some drinks to celebrate the killing of the military. Those people are aggressors. They really deserve death penalties. Those who are defending them anywhere and on television channels are either traitors and corrupt or the real perpetrators who hired the thugs to rebel. They want to spread chaos in order to get rid of Morsi. Demonstrations exist in any country in the world. The Egyptians, too, held the most prominent demonstrations ever in January where we overthrew Mubarak. At that time, the most important slogan was “peaceful… peaceful”. Unfortunately, the current demonstrations are not peaceful because the participants are carrying automatic guns. They attack the Police. Still worse, they condemn the interventions of the Police. May God help you Egypt.

    The only concern of the low followers of America in Egypt is the failure of Morsi and preventing him from the chance to achieve stability and the progress of Egypt ... They have neither got a popular nor a legitimate demand. They do not have any national perspective. They aim only to recruit the ignorant and criminals in order to raise chaos to serve Zionists. Mr. President has held senior…accountable on the charge of incitement to murder and destroying State properties.

    Our Egyptian brothers should be patient since this miserable opposition reflects the dismissive mentality of its leaders which consists in rejecting the choice of the peoples as long as it does not meet their desires as we have seen in Algeria and Palestine. I am personally pleased with their behavior because it reveals their bankruptcy and inability to provide an alternative national project and that their most important concern is reaching power at any price. In the end, what count most is that the consolidation of democracy and values such as freedom and justice is ongoing and following the right path until these so-called patriotic people will know their real weight at the end of the parliamentary elections.

    Claiming that the demonstrations were peaceful are mere words because in fact these demonstrations are full of violence, abuses and sabotage. The problem is that the number of the peaceful demonstrators is less than the number of the thieves and thugs. Hence, the peaceful demonstrator must keep away from zones of clashes to allow the security to differentiate between the peaceful demonstrators and the outlaws.

    I just wanted to know what they are competing for. It is not the time for competition between the parties simply because it is not the time of elections. So, why are they talking about competition? In this period, we are expected to reconstruct the nation, to pay back the debts and to establish a new Egyptian State. For more than thirty years, the nation has been marred by corruption and stagnation in all life aspects. We noted that some parties are trying to appear as heroes, taking advantage of the sacrifices of the dead. I do not want to call them martyrs. Indeed, the martyrs are the people who sacrifice their lives in a battle against a foreign enemy. However, the Egyptian Government and the President Mohamed Morsi are not enemies of the Egyptians. In fact, President Morsi has learned the Words of God by heart. Thus, he knows quite well how to manage the Egyptian State. The thugs who believe that they could achieve their goals through anarchy are actually sinful. Demonstrations and protests are legitimate rights. However, attacking and burning and destroying people and properties are punishable crimes. The perpetrators will be held accountable sooner or later. That is the way things work in all respectable countries of the world. The disputing parties must seek dialogue, which is considered as the only solution to the current crisis, with regards to the current events in Egypt. In fact, Mohamed Morsi has always been calling for negotiations. He has never rejected them. We do not mind holding serious talks between the parties to spare the blood of the Egyptians.

Let the change come from the individuals first. Even the developed countries are suffering from many problems. Yet, the authorities there do not allow the people to meddle in everything. You will regret it later, when remorse will not help. Do not haste. Wait for the end of President Morsi’s term. Then, you could elect whoever you want. You only have the right to vote.

Firstly, the constitution amendments require certain mechanisms. The constitution could not be amended with a stroke of a pen of the President or someone else. Secondly, it is illegal to remove the District Attorney. According to the constitution, which passed through a referendum, the President does not have the power to sack the District Attorney. You have to read the Constitution first.

    I do not know what happened exactly yesterday on the salvation Friday. Are we doomed to demonstrate every Friday to claim our rights? The authority officials are expected to carry out their duties to the fullest. They must seek the interests of the Egyptian people. The latter are entitled to enjoy their rights, in addition to the compensations for the revolution's victims. Indeed, the martyrs did not sacrifice their lives for the sake of Mr. Morsi. They did not mean to pave the way for him to succeed to power. In fact, they sacrificed their lives to make a real change in Egypt. I do not think that they would be happy to see things unchanged after their death. Why have the people been killed in Tahrir Square for two years? Did they seek death to embarrass the Government and the police? Frankly speaking, the recent events in Egypt are really terrible. We saw horrible scenes in Egyptian streets. Enough torture! Had the Egyptian Government and the President been respectable, we would not have seen such scenes in Egypt. The people would have been reassured that the Government is seeking to respect their rights and to respond to their demands. The citizens would not need to demonstrate. The opposition, too, is entitled to defend itself and claim its rights even if it is against the will of the Government. Egypt is supposed to be a democracy where the freedom of opinion is guaranteed. We need to establish a true State rather than a state controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood. I would like to remind the Brotherhood leaders that they were subjected to torture in prisons. The regime which tortured them is overthrown. The torture of the Brotherhood in prisons during the rule of the former regime was publically viewed as an insult to the Egyptian people as a whole. Thus, the Egyptian people were not responsible for those crimes. I am really astonished. The members of the Muslim Brotherhood are privileged while the other Egyptians are being humiliated. We are fed up with the violent bloody scenes. We need a way out of violence.

In fact, it has been invented by the remnants of the former regime who are still recruiting these criminals using the looted money of Egyptians. Thus, I wonder whether Mr. President is not able to halt this harmful trend which will make us drown.

    It is clear that the situation in Egypt will never improve. In fact, when people were oppressed and violated, they knew that the country was being robbed. Despite that, everyone used to think that the most important thing is that they are alive. Yet, I believe that those who protest will either be detained or killed. No one can refute that he must be subjected to any kind of punishment. However, after all that happened, the youth have cared for nothing but looking for the means to practice their freedom. Thus, they have gone out in the Tahrir Square and made one of the most wonderful revolutions in the history of Egypt. As a result, they have obtained their freedom and were unexpectedly responsible for overthrowing former President Mohamed Hosni Mubarak. In fact, these events have taken place but Egyptians have never expected such things to happen. Indeed, this marks a new beginning of new strikes that claimed the lives of hundreds of innocent Egyptians. For these reasons, the entire world should look for the rights of Egyptians who have been murdered in the demonstrations. In fact, since the 25th January Revolution, Tahrir Square has always been frequented by demonstrators asking for particular demands. In the end, we find violence, beating and murder. I wonder whether we have forgotten Al Jamal event that has claimed the lives of a large number of Egyptians. Therefore, I would like honestly to say that violence has become a very provoking phenomenon in Egypt since it occurs with every gathering and has become a characteristic of all Egyptians. As a matter of fact, we have to agree on the national dialogue; perhaps it will be one of the reasons which could lead us to a new political life free from violence.

    I wonder what we hoped for when we saw the Molotov cocktails being thrown toward Al-Ittihadiya Palace on satellite TV channels. I also wonder what every patriotic citizen hopes at that time. What do the believers in Allah, the right and justice expect? Are those the demonstrations? Do they believe that the repetition of the same scenarios of January 2011 might overthrow a president who has been elected by the majority of the people? “Free rebels, we will continue till the end." Do rebels react against rebels? It is rather treachery, treason and personalization. Do they believe that they are the revolution makers and people representatives from Aswan to Ras Al Tiin? They cannot look far.

I also wonder whether the opposition to the American President Obama, who are few and some of them are racist because the latter has African origins, have thrown Molotov cocktails or bricks on the White House. Has one of them tried to climb the fence as some have done in the Al-Ittihadiya Palace? Of course, there is a difference between the democracy of the conscious people and that of underdevelopment.

It only condemns what happened in these locations and what is happening in Egypt is prohibited. The children, woman, and innocents are trusts in our hands. We can never allow the violation of honor or the destruction that can afflict the home. If this happened, them we will need decades to achieve renaissance in our home again.

    The responsibility of President Morsi does not mean that the opposition is not responsible too. After the defeat of the opposition in the face of the Islamists‎ in the presidential and parliamentarian elections in addition to the constitutional referendum, the opposition seems unwilling to commit to the rules of the democratic game.

I think that the opposition must accept this President and the poor people understand the situation very well by accepting Morsi. This would make it easy for Palestine. Why do you insist that there should be no alliance between Egypt and the Arabs in the Middle East and the Gulf region? The Egyptians are alone and they have no alliance with any force in the world.

    Indeed, this was the Salvation Friday, but in my opinion is that the Friday salvation from the manners, morals and patriotism. The police have eliminated all the possible chancels of agreement between the people and the policemen. Those who did not see the moral meanness in the treatment of the security men with the revolutionaries and the demonstrators should know that the police follow the same policies and even worse than it was at the time of Mubarak and under leadership of Al-Adli. I have never felt that this country has witnessed a revolution that demands the freedom, dignity and the social justice. The Egyptian president Muhammad Mursi loomed on the horizon a few days ago threatening us with his finger to frighten the people and the demonstrators. The police were suppressing the revolutionaries with the sticks and the bullets, killing many people and wounding many others. It is also very shameful to make some individuals rape the women in order to prevent them from participating in the demonstration and the sit-in. These are cheap methods that is adopted by the state these days. However, the anger will continue and there will be salvation from the oppression, suppression, and tyranny. This is final.

They want to topple president Mursi who came to the office as a result of fair elections. If we accepted this, then any one has the right to topple the coming president if he did not like him, even if he was elected and so on. May God punish them. We are respectable people and no one would live forever because even the pharaohs died. God protects Egypt not ElBaradei. Let him launch a project for the nuclear power to be remembered like Zewail’s University and Ya’qoob’s open-heart surgery hospital. We have many examples of the great people who served their country. The money is not everything even if it is indispensable.
