After Egypt's President, Mohamed Morsi refused to step down before the 5 pm deadline set by the army, a coup is believed to be under way.
In a last-minute statement before the military's deadline expired, Morsi again rejected the military's intervention, saying abiding by his electoral legitimacy was the only way to prevent violence. He criticized the military for "taking only one side."
On the likelihood of an Islamist retaliation if Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi is forced out of power, the Muslim Brotherhood’s motto says it all: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Koran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”
The BBC quoted a senior official of the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, Muhammad al-Beltagi, as stating on Facebook that “preventing this coup may call for martyrdom.”
