To all my non Egyptian friends that are getting their news from the Western media. What is happening now in Egypt is NOT a military coup. It's the People's Revolution against a fascist, fanatic regime. 33 million Egyptians are out in the streets to kick Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood OUT once and for all, this is all because of the youth revolutionary movement named "TAMAROD: revolt" who gather over 22 million signed petition by the Egyptian citizens stating that we dont want morsi as a leader anymore, since he no longer honor the law nor the constitution . The media, especially CNN is depicting the picture that they want you to believe since the American administration supports this fanatic, terrorist government. The Egyptians have spoken with a completely free will power to change this country around. The army is by our side to protect us and protect our beloved Egypt.

thank you all for reading this and also of the comment never thought that what happens here would intrigue this amount of people from around the world , it really gives me hope that Egypt could be something again , really thank you.
In the past few days tragic events happened , I was proud of the largest peaceful protest known in modern history , but things took an ugly turn. I live in cairo "al manyal" this neighborhood is like a small island in the nile one one side are the protesters of al tahrir "against morsy" and on the other side protesters of al nahda "pro morsi" , on the forsaken friday 5/7/2013 protesters of al nahda "pro morsi" attempted to extend their protesting territory to al manyal "where I live" people in my neighborhood asked them to leave , but thing started getting out of hand and the morsi pro group started attacking the civilians both verbally and physically , then retreated returning at about 8 pm with guns and the shooting started . total of 12 died 5 unarmed young men from al manyal 2 police officers from the forces who tried to interfere and I'm not sure about the rest but i think it's from the protesters of al nahda "pro morsi group" over 50 were severely injured , and all the deaths were by gun shots ... the pro morsi protesters aka the muslim brotherhood are not peaceful they don't negotiate and they don't want to resolve all peacefully , they think all of this is a religious matter and by removing morsi we are obscuring the islamic vision they have for the future of egypt.
again two days ago another shameful massacre happened , the morsi protesters now protesting near the " Egyptian Republican Guard HQ" started elevating the situation and there was shooting between them and the army , they claimed that the army attacked while they were peacefully praying al fagr , while the army officially announced that it was not true they were armed and they wanted to infiltrate the HQ and backed up their words with a live footage taken from the scene of the accident. 51 died in that event and over 300 injured "Im not either pro the army nor the protesters , violence form either side is not what we want"
it's a shame what is happening now in egypt, we are trying to resolve all peacefully , just hope the other party would understand and start negotiation for the greater good of this country even after all the problems the brotherhood caused the new regime is willing to forgive and forget , also they are welcome to participate in the upcoming elections, wish all of this ends soon
I'm really sorry for not answering you guys for the past few days but it was really a tough time for me, am praying all will be better soon
PS: sorry for identifying the lives lost as soldiers / pro morsi / civilians / against morsi ... it's just to show that lives are lost from all sides, we are all Egyptians and any Egyptian dying - no matter what he dies for or his believes are- is a loss to us all

although it's Ramadan things been messy these past few days 3 young ladies died in al mansoura in the protests "morsi's supporters" , then a large number of soldiers dying daily in Sinai on the hands of terrorist groups , 3 civilians died by gunshots near al tahrir that had nothing to do with protests on the hands of gangs shooting randomly in the streets. things are getting out of hand the current government and morsi supporters are not trying to resolve this and innocent lives are being lost in the middle of this ridiculous dispute. Yesterday egypt's armed forces chief "adul fattah el sisi" called for mass protests to support his movement against "Terrorists", unfortunately his speech was vague with the definition of terrorists if it means the groups attacking our troops in Sinai and civilians in the streets than it's fine, but what some ppl here fear and I fear too is that this movement may include the protesters in rabaa "morsi's supporters" there are condemned criminals hiding among them but there are also thousands of innocents, things could go really simple if both sides decided to compromise, the liberals claim it's all because of the religious fascism of the brotherhood and the morsi supporters things it's an attack on islam :s , things are takinga dark turn all of a sudden and I really don't know what to think anymore , allah be with egypt

What I feared just happened 29 confirmed deaths and hundred's of injuries among rabaa's protesters, the story is the protesters tried to move outside rabaa to extend their protesting territory as an objection to what's happening , they were attacked by people living near the area "residents of mansheyat naser: one of the biggest and most dangerous slums in cairo" also the police forces interfered, the results were 29 confirmed deaths "all from rabaa protesters" and over 700 wounded, there was shooting as always from both sides.
What hurts me in all this is that there are people here cheering and welcoming this kind of violence against the protesters from the brotherhood, it feels like getting sucked into the dark ages .The hatred between both sides is unbearable people are losing focus of what the revolution started for in the first place and are now focusing on either your supporting morsi or al sisi to hell with both, people are dying over political disputes is this the kind of freedom we asked for, all tainted with blood ... civilians dying , soldiers dying , young men and women dying . I really wish that this would end soon, enough bloodshed and accepting that people are being killed daily and encouraging such a behavior is a crime above all
