Default New Political Showdown in Egypt as Court Invalidates Parliament

Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court on Thursday ruled that the Islamist-led Parliament must be immediately dissolved, while also blessing the right of Hosni Mubarak’s last prime minister to run for president, escalating a battle for power between the remnants of the toppled order and rising Islamists.

Interesting. I saw that earlier. One has to wonder whether it really is a coup or whether the military really is trying to act in a constitutional fashion. If the former, there will be a LOT of trouble in Egypt for some time to come.

The road to responsible self-governance is littered with potholes and sometimes with boulders; nevertheless, it cannot be avoided forever.
From the age of pharaohs through myriad mutations of the enduring human inclination to oppress and exclude through unjust remuneration, the basic justification has remained unchanged. It is the fear, affected or real, propounded by countless leaders, scholars, and statesman, that extending justice to all, will lead to national impoverishment and decline. Cyclical retelling of the Exodus story among people of faith serves to celebrate the role of God's saving justice in the human cycle of oppression and redemption. It also serves as an admonition to be on the right side of this story in every age and time.
