Egypt Judges Morsi Moves 'Unprecedented Assault' on Judiciary

The Islamic cancer is eating itself up from within already.  It was only a matter of time before the cycle of Mid Eastern power struggles repeated itself.  Now who will the US and Europe support?  The "democratically" elected Morsi, or the "New" rebels opposing Morsi the Brotherhoods Pharaoh?  I don't care as long as Morsi and the rebels  chase each other in circles.

Egypt Judges Morsi Moves 'Unprecedented Assault' on Judiciary

Egypt's official news agency says that the country's highest body of judges has called the president's recent decrees an "unprecedented assault on the independence of the judiciary and its rulings."
