Meet the new boss

I am really shocked by the mob killing of four Shia Muslims in Egypt. The silence of president Morsi on such brutal killing adds another layer of failure of this president and his Freedom and Justice Party (the political arm of the Muslim brotherhood) in the governing of Egypt.

On Jan. 25, 2011, Egyptian people of all religions, sects, ages, colors and professions succeeded in bringing down Hosni Mubarak after 30 years of iron-fisted rule. Ever since Morsi came to power, Egypt suffered many problems, economic, security, safety on the streets, high unemployment and discrimination of different forms. The killing of these four Shia goes against the teaching of Islam and all other religions. Egypt’s grand Mufti condemned this brutal action.

It is important that Egypt remove this president or start another revolution. On the first anniversary of Morsi’s rule, on June 30, Egyptians are planning to go back on the streets to request that Morsi steps down. Morsi’s government is planning to stop all trains and public transportation to prevent people from joining in this gathering. I hope our country will support the Egyptian people in their second revolution and not support Morsi.
