Police Are Discontented

The so called, “election”of Mohamed Morsi to the presidency has ushered in a new era of uncertainty and anger which has rippled through the entire society of Egypt. Interior Minister MOhaed Ibrahim made clear that a large segment of members of the police force are angry at the inept leadership of their “president.” His statement came a day after the funeral of a member of the security forces when large numbers of police chanted angry remarks against President Morsi.

Ibrahim made clear the Interior Ministry will not confront those planning to protest on June 30 against the president and his buddies in the Muslim Brotherhood. The economy is in chaos, Morsi has allowed attacks on Coptic Christians and seeks to  allow the Muslim Brotherhood to extend its power in the government. A mass rally is planned and, most probably, there will be physical clashes as Egyptians make clear their desire for a democratic society.
