Will they get the numbers that the protests that toppled Morsi got? Probably not. Will the numbers they get lead Obama to pressure the new leaders further to give concessions to the Muslim Brotherhood and even to reinstate Morsi? Probably. “Islamist leader calls for pro-Morsi protests across Egypt,” from Reuters, July 13 (thanks to Voice of the Copts):
A senior leader of ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi’s party called for mass rallies across Egypt on Monday, hours after tens of thousands of Mursi’s supporters demanded his return in a peaceful protest in Cairo.
“Next Monday a bigger crowd, God willing, in all the squares of Egypt – against the military coup,” Essam El-Erian, said on his Facebook page on Saturday. “Egypt decides through the ballot box, through protests, and mass rallies and peaceful sit-ins. No one person, one elite group and military organisation will impose its decision on the people,” he said. (Reuters)
