The Muslim Brotherhood has decided to postpone a mass protest it had called for Tuesday in Cairo in the interest of preventing violence, an official from the Islamist group's Freedom and Justice Party said on Misr 25 TV channel.

Parties opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood and President Mohamed Morsi, who was propelled to power by the group, have called a protest in Tahrir Square on Tuesday to demonstrate against a decree issued by Mursi last week.

The Nour Party, a more hardline Islamist party that has come out in support of the Mursi decree, had agreed with the Brotherhood on the postponement, a spokesman for the party said.

We need to think of Egypt
Egypt and Egyptians will be together again. They are building our Country for bright future. Egypt and Egyptians need to wait and see, if Mr President Mohamed Morsi decree is working or not. All Political parties Leaders and Egyptians should working together for Egypt. We need to look at Chain, 50 year's ago no one could afford a car in Chain and the economy is very poor. Now Chain sell a car every minute and the economy is booming. The violence and waste time is not good for us. No matter how good or bad you think life is, wake up each day and be thankful for life. Someone, somewhere else is fighting to survive. All we need to be honest and to do our jobs right. God bless Egypt.
