This weekend, millions of Egyptians will come together at the presidential palace zone in the Heliopolis district, northeast of Cairo to call for the resignation of President Mohammad Morsi, and Egyptian Christians are asking fellow believers to pray.
Over 15 million Egyptians have signed the “Rebel,” (a petition of sorts) requesting the president, who has only been in office for a year, step down and make way for new early presidential elections.
“The picture of a chemical reaction comes to my mind when I try to analyze what is happening on the ground in Egypt now…liquid substances in one jar and a strong flame underneath,” said Michael (real name protected), an Egyptian Christian leader, according to Christian Newswire. “The heat of the flame together with the heavy dark smoke produced of the reaction of the two substances gives a warning alert that a possible explosion in most likely to happen.”
“On one side, the Rebel movement of volunteers is working every hour preparing for the large demonstrations and related activities that are expected to sweep the country this Sunday. They are urging Egyptians who oppose the rule of Morsi and his regime to participate in the national protest. On the other hand, Morsi and his supporting parties of Muslim Brotherhood and Salafists are also working extensively to fight against the Rebel campaign by stirring up their submissive followers to attack the campaign volunteers and offices by words and deeds,” Michael continued.
