I hope you and your family stay safe. These are troubling times.
They have said that they want the capital of the "United States of Arabia" to be Jerusalem. Need I say more?
The Presidency is a figurehead at this point in time. I strongly suspect that the US told SCAF to go ahead and have Morsi assume the presidency ( and I do believe that he did win honestly- unfortunately-) or they ( the US) would make good on their threat to withdraw military grants, loans etc.
Frankly, I would like to see that military aid scrapped entirely and have it go towards housing, agriculture and education. Then maybe all of the Egyptian people would understand what a representational republic is.
Take note, this is what a democracy will get you.
Thanks for your concern. Hopefully the Shafik people will stay calm and polite and not cause trouble.
