Morsi defies Egypt military rulers

2012-06-29 20:10

Cairo - Egypt's newly elected president has read the oath of office in Tahrir Square and defied the country's military rulers by saying, "I fear no one but God."

Mohammed Morsi addressed tens of thousands of mostly Islamist supporters Saturday in a strongly worded speech.

He spoke on the eve of his official swearing-in ceremony that was scheduled in front of a high court.

But many protesters called on him to take the oath in the square to defy the ruling generals who took power after Hosni Mubarak's ouster.

Morsi vowed that the power of people is above all and that no one can take away the president's authorities.

    No need to fear God. God is love. That's the old fear-based and guilt-ridden spirituality.

      Salma who cares what any religious brainwashed people think? They(religious bigots of all kinds) are delusional and have caused more murders and killings than so called "unbelievers"... If God exists (im not saying he does not) why should anyone fear a creator? Do you fear your parents who gave you life? Religion is the opium of the masses...plays on peoples insecurities and fears.

      @Fred: If you don't believe in God, and that God created man, you probablly think that your ancestors adapted and transformed into human beings from apes.So, you wouldn't really mind if I call you \son of an ape\? Think, then read God's book-the Quraan- you'll find the truth. 1 in 4 people on earth have already found the truth! Shouldn't you at least check it out...

      @mohammedsiddique.kadwa That means 3 out of 4 know the truth

      No, not really- Previously it was 1 in 6 people, then 1 in 5 people, now one in 4 people, in 8 years it will be 1 in 3 people (Insha Allah).....You do the math. Why deny the facts? Accept the truth, accept reality. The human race is uniting under 1 religion, Islam! Its worth researching the message in the Quraan before making blind judgemants. You're right there- check it out. Read the first chapter alone, you'll be captivated by its message!

      said.s.abdi.5 "only those who trully know Allah (God) fear" Ask this Allah chap why he causes so much terror in the world that we have to fear him - loving god? religion of peace? Actions speak louder than words.

      nibiru.sekkiejorge - lol excellent! its a fact muslims are one of the most impoverished and illiterate people in the world (Excluding countries with oil wealth)...so what do impoverished and illiterate ppl do? They breed like rats and cause their numbers to go up and then they say their religion has xyz million followers so it must be the truth!

      Mohammed I've read the koran - heres what it says : Surah 9:5 verse of the Quran calls upon "all" Muslims to kill "all" non-Muslims or the so-called "Infidels". "fight and slay the pagans (or infidels or unbelievers) wherever you find them?" (9:5). Source : http://quran.com/9/5
