Gubernatorial Reshuffle

June 30th is forecasted to host the largest protests against President Morsi. These protests have the backing of big names like Mohammed El Baradei, Amr Moussa, and Hamdeen Sabahi. All this and yet, the President doesn’t give a damn. He has broken all diplomatic ties with Syria, against the counsel of his advisors, and last night he named 17 new regional governors, seven of them being from the Muslim Brotherhood, while the new governor of one of Egypt’s most important touristic areas, Luxor, is from the hard-line Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya. Although Morsi has continuously claimed to have the intentions of every Egyptian at heart, it seems as though with this new shuffle, he is just giving them the finger. The June 30th protests have been gaining momentum and the only words we’re hearing are, “Bring it on bitches.”
