[quote:KoFFee_:MV8yMDY2OTE4XzM0Nzc3NjIxXzIzQTFGMTc2] [b]Keep your Eye on Egypt [/b] [i] Did you know that Mr. Morsi made his first official trip outside the Middle East by visiting China? That would seem to signal that China plays a very important role in Morsi's foreign policy agenda, wouldn't it? Especially since the U.S. gives Egypt nearly $2 Billion each year in foreign aid. Couple this news with the fact that China enjoys a much more popular standing among the Egyptian people than the U.S., and the increased economic interconnectedness, and I think we have a problem. You see, Egyptian/Chinese trade jumped 46% from 2008 to 2011, surpassing Egyptian trade with the U.S. If that's not enough to convince you that we need to keep our eye on Egypt, consider this: Egypt is following the course of other Muslim states -- including Pakistan, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Turkey -- which have returned China's embrace of their economies. That does not bode well for our foreign trade or our national security.[/i] Read the whole article here: http://www.salvationandsurvival.com/2012/11/keep-your-eye-on-egypt.html [/quote]
Egyptian activists were to rally Friday after a Islamist-dominated panel rushed through a draft constitution, escalating the political stand-off between President Mohammed Morsi and his opposition.
A spokesman for former Arab League chief Amr Moussa said the opposition leader would later Friday head a march to Tahrir Square, where activists are staging a sit-in protest against a decree by Morsi granting himself broad powers that shield his decisions from judicial review.
Other protest groups are planning their own marches Friday ahead of a mass opposition rally called on Saturday to rival an Islamist protest in support of Morsi.
