Egyptian president Morsi took a bold move, ordering the parliament back in session. It's a good first step. Now, he must throw out the mubarak appointed judges of the top court. And the American media ought to stop siding with Islamophobia over democracy.
Egypt's new President Mohammed Morsi, in one of his first acts, ordered the parliament back in session.
Then, the top court shut down the parliament, within a day. The MSM reports that the Mubarak appointed military backed up the court. It failed to report that the court was also appointed by Mubarak. The revolution that threw out Mubarak and the old legislature should also throw out the court judges appointed by Mubarak AND the army generals.
Morsi took a bold move, re-opening congress, challenging the court's earlier closing of it. Now that the court has attempted to slap him down, Morsi should draw on the support of the revolution and not only defy the court and the military, but call for removing all of the Mubarak appointed judges and Generals.
But we don't hear about that from the MSM. We hear about how Morsi is an Islamist and how a majority of the newly elected members of congress are Islamists.
It seems to me like the MSM and the congress are more interested in Islamophobia than in true democracy.
Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
