Military Coup In Egypt Essay

937 words - 4 pages

The military coup in Egypt was very controversial. I believe that the ousting of Morsi was completely wrong and should never have happened. After the overthrow of Dictator Hosni Mubarak, Mohamed Morsi was democratically voted president of Egypt. Morsi was only president for a year. During his short spell the military illegally took control of Egypt and placed president Morsi under house arrest. This sparked controversy across the globe.
One of my main reasons why I am against the coup is that president Morsi was placed under arrest for killing his own people which is something I find hard to believe. Why would Morsi kill his own people after the Mubarak dictatorship? After all Morsi was elected by the people of Egypt and he is the people’s president it doesn’t make any sense, I believe the accusations against Morsi were made up by military. Secondly Morsi never killed any Egyptian citizens, were as the military have. The Military branded citizens ‘Terrorists’ when they were no more than ordinary people exercising their right to protest. The Military then went ahead and turned a peaceful protest into chaos causing many lives to be lost. In addition, I believe that the military falsified support. When the Military justified their seizure of the government the number who were said to be against Morsi were highly exaggerated. I also believe the people who did protest against Morsi where under the strong influence of the deep state and had false impressions about president Morsi. The deep state are powerful people who were part of the Mubarak dictatorship who remained in strong positions. These people have a continued influence in the army, police, civil-service and the media. The presidency of Mohamed Morsi was against their interests because they no longer had a strong say in the running of the country, they therefore highlighted Morsi’s few failures and ignored his many successes; this cause many people to turn against the president they voted for. The deep state caused people to protest against Morsi but the people never supported a Military take over.
On the other hand it can be thought that Morsi wasn’t the president to take the country forward after the Mubarak dictatorship. It was believed by many people that Morsi done very little to change the country. I do believe Morsi was the president who was going to take the country forward because he strengthened Egypt’s links with other countries. Through the influence of the deep state president Morsi was put across as being a bad president. There is a website – morsimeter.com which recorded the progress of the president through his first 100 days of presidency from the website it is clear that president Morsi was continuously...
