edited December 1969 in Prayer Requests
All,

please pray for Egypt. The President has resigned his office and has ordered the military to take over. Egypt is under military rule now. Please pray that God may look upon His blessed people of Egypt with mercy in the months to come and give the country peace.

Thank you.

  • do bear in mind that there is no government in the world which God himself has not ordained, be it military!
    all authorities are subject to God's sovereign authority. may God have mercy on the sinners of Egypt!

    No, you got it all wrong, all wrong! Let me explain Military Rule.

    Okay, so you have The Egyptian Armed Forces.

    There are leaders, generals, lieutenant generals, and captains of the Armed forces.

    They are now controlling the country, and the ultimate leader of the country, is the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces, Mohamad Hussein Tantawi, he's acting president.

    Under Military rule there will be no protests, no crimes, no anything, and according to the constitution a new set of laws are imposed to prevent any opposition during the time of instability. In short the Military is trying to make sure that Egypt stays stable and doesn't burn during the transition period.
  • A few questions:

    who the heck is tantawi? do we know anything about him?
    Has an election date been decided?
    Can we vote in the diaspora?

    Tantawi - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohamed_Hussein_Tantawi

    He is The Former Egyptian Defense Minister, and The Current Chairman of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. He leads the Army, that's who he is, and he took over the country, as directed by Mubarak, with the Military. The Country is now under full occupation of the Egyptian Armed Forces, it's been invaded by the Egyptian Army so to speak. Tantawi led the Egyptian Army in the Gulf War, and he was a leader in the October War.

    No Election date has not been decided yet.
    No you cannot vote in the diaspora, unless you have Egyptian Citizenship and you go to Egypt during elections.
