Morsi under house arrest, Obama hardest hit

Four years of pandering to the Muslim Brotherhood, and now this. “Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi under house arrest – Al Hayat TV,” by John Gregory for KABC, June 3 (thanks to Mike):

CAIRO (KABC) — Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi is reportedly under house arrest after the military ultimatum expired Wednesday, reports Al Hayat TV.Morsi’s spokesman denied the report, according to ABC News, but word of the house arrest provoked cheers in Tahrir Square.

This comes as Egypt’s military moved to tighten its control on key institutions before their afternoon ultimatum expired.

The military stationed officers in the newsroom of state television on the banks of the Nile River in central Cairo. Troops were deployed in news-production areas.

Officers from the army’s media department moved inside the newsroom and were monitoring output, though not yet interfering, staffers said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about the arrangements.

This move shows the military’s preparation for an almost certain push to remove the country’s Islamist president when an afternoon ultimatum expires….

…All signs point to Huma using a technique championed by Qaradawi himself. It’s called Muruna and it allows Muslims to go to extreme lengths to deceive and convince non-Muslims they pose no threat. One such act permitted by Muruna would be for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim man if it furthered the cause of Islam…


At Instapundit:

EGYPT’S PRESIDENT MORSI has been deposed. I imagine the Muslim Brotherhood is pretty pissed.

UPDATE: Yep. Islamists Freaking Out After Morsi Ouster.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Anti-Obama Sentiment Widespread. What’s interesting is that the banners are anti-Obama, not anti-America.

Update:  Egyptians don’t want to be ruled by a pharaoh

Protesters in Tahrir are fed up with President Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood movement’s effort to use God as a political weapon to legitimize an authoritarian power grab.
Earlier this evening via Fox News Radio’s Todd Starnes:

BREAKING NEWS: I just received Obama’s statement on the coup in Egypt.President Obama is standing by the Muslim Brotherhood.

“We are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove President Morsi and suspend the Egyptian Constitution.”

He also urged the military not to arrest Morsi or any of his supporters. Too late – because the military has already started rounding up Muslim Brotherhood leaders.

Very disturbing that the Obama Administration chooses to stand with those who’ve burned churches, slaughtered Christians and brutalized women.
