Today marks a true milestone in Egyptian history. We’ve once again taught the world that the power of people is so much stronger and louder than the people in power, that it’s never too late for change to happen. I was one of the people who supported Morsi’s coming to power in the presidential elections last year, not because I supported him, but because I just couldn’t stand the thought of another Mubarak coming to power (Morsi’s opponent). But with every single day that passed with Morsi in office, our frustration and disappointment kept increasing. This wasn’t the post-revolution Egypt that we’ve all dreamed about. These so-called “Islamists” violated every single principle that Islam stands for. Their greed and lust for power blinded their vision and they turned into other Mubaraks. They called us “enemies of God” and “atheists” merely for opposing their regime. Their media channels acted as a mouthpiece for their fraudulent regime; distorting reality and creating divisions between the people.
But we just couldn’t take it anymore. On June 30th Egyptians took to the streets, almost 32 million Egyptians were out on the streets full of anger and determined to get rid of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood once and for all . We stood in the streets calling out for the removal of his fascist, fanatic regime that has done our country no good. Yet, he simply decided to ignore that. He decided to ignore these unprecedented masses and rallies, and accuse us of being “enemies of the revolution” and not wanting to move forward . And just when we were hitting our peak, he came out with another one of his provocative speeches that further infuriated the masses and showed us a whole new level of political stupidity. While we were hitting our boiling point, he came out to talk about his alleged “Legitimacy” as President. The legitimacy that was long gone when Egyptians died on his watch. The legitimacy that was long gone when he proved to be completely incapable of solving our problems. In his speech he gave us an ultimatum; either his rule or absolute chaos and bloodshed -spoken like a true dictator.
Tonight, we prevailed. Egyptians prevailed. All allegations about this being a military coup are just outrageous! How can such an uprising of more than 30 million people be completely disregarded and ignored? The ouster of former president Morsi is the direct outcome of a people’s revolution. A people’s revolution against a fascist fanatic regime that used “Islam” as an excuse to serve their dirty political interests. Tonight we teach the world a lesson: nothing will ever quench our thirst for freedom and justice. God Bless Egypt!
