Breitbart News reports: All Muslim Brotherhood television channels in Egypt have gone off the air. Al-Hafez and Al-Nas both went off the air immediately after Egyptian Military General Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi’s speech to the Egyptian public announcing a military coup in Egypt. He said that the Constitution had been suspended, that early elections would take place, and that there would be a “code of ethics for the media that would establish values and ethics for the media to follow.”
General al-sisi also stated that the chief of the Constitutional court would be taking charge during a transitional period before another election. He said the new government would be “diverse and include all the people,” and that the constitution would be revised to reverse changes made by ousted Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi. Even the troubled Syrian President quickly jumped into the events and said,”What is happening in Egypt is the fall of so-called political Islam. This is the fate of anyone in the world who tries to use religion for political or factional interests.”
Muslim Brotherhood, one of the most radical and vile Islāmic organizations had been kept under tight control by Morsi’s predecessor Hosni Mubarak backed by the military. Muslim Brotherhood was also the alma mater of Al-Qaeda’s Osama Bin Laden’s second in command, Zawahiri. The brotherhood’s relationship with the Egyptian state vacillated between tolerance and brutal oppression. The well-organized group emerged as Egypt’s most potent political force after Mubarak’s fall, dominating parliamentary elections and winning Morsi the presidency.
Fortunately, Muslim Brotherhood’s declaration of turning Egypt into Sharia land had begun to trouble most Egyptians for whom this was not supposed to be the result of the ouster of long time Dictator Mubarak in 2011 after mass protests by the Egyptian people. Since coming to power, Muslim Brotherhood’s support had waned consistently as Morsi and his allies seemed bent on consolidating power and critics charged that they were driving the country toward religious rule and behaving like dictators themselves. Many Egyptians who once supported Morsi and the Brotherhood clearly did not like what they were doing to the country. As they saw it, Morsi and the Brotherhood were transforming Arab Spring into Arab Fever and that was making everybody sick.
