Defying military, Egypt’s Morsi orders parliament to reconvene

“Egypt’s president on Sunday ordered the Islamist-dominated parliament to reconvene in defiance of a military decree dissolving the legislature last month on the basis of a ruling by the country’s top court, the state news agency reported.

The surprise move by President Mohamed Morsi, himself an Islamist, will almost certainly lead to a clash with the powerful generals who formally handed power to him on June 30 after spending 16 months at the nation’s helm following the ouster of Hosni Mubarak in a popular uprising.”

Somehow I’m just not buying this, I think it’s a Reichstag fire pantomime played out for the populace. I believe the MB and the army are much closer than is being let on.
