Egypt president Mohamed Morsi’s aides Seif Abdel-Fattah and Ayman El-Sayyad have resigned on Wednesday in the wake of the clashes that erupted in front of the presidential palace between supporters and opponents of Morsi.

“We are today announcing the decision that we have made but put on hold for more than a week. We hoped to find a solution, but to no avail,” El-Sayyad said on his Twitter account.

Seif Abdel-Fattah told Al-Jazeera television: “Egypt is bigger than a narrow-minded elite. Egypt will continue its revolution.”

“We can no longer stay silent because they [the Muslim Brotherhood] have harmed the nation and the revolution and we need to rebuild Egypt...the youth are the ones who took to the front lines to serve the revolution...I pray for mercy for the souls of the martyrs.”

Shame on the Egyptian Military:
Islamists over take the Government, the Constitutional Assembly, beat up civilians innocently protesting while you just sit in your baracks relaxing? Shameful indeed! Those of Gamal Abdel Nassir & Anwar Al Saadat were real men: not useless Bimbos like the present Egyptian Armed forces. They used to put the Country & its among their top priorities.
