Good riddance to jihad rubbish: Report: Pro Morsi Supporters Chant Anti-Jewish Slogan at Cairo University (Algemeiner)
The Egypt Independent website reported Wednesday that supporters of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi were chanting an anti-Jewish slogan during a demonstration at Cairo University.
According to the website’s Twitter feed, “Pro-Morsy protesters at Cairo University chant the anti-Jewish slogan: ’Khaybar, Khayber, O Jews, the army of Mohamed will return.’”

Egyptian military chief Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi announced July 3 that the country's president, Mohammed Morsi, had been removed from office in the wake of popular unrest. In a short media statement, al-Sisi, who was flanked by the three armed services chiefs, opposition leaders, the sheikh of al-Azhar Mosque and the pope of the Coptic Church, announced that Adly Mansour, chief justice of the Constitutional Court, has replaced Morsi as interim president. He also announced that the constitution had been suspended. Mansour's appointment is notable in that one of the key demands of the Tamarod protest movement was that he become president. The provisional government will be holding fresh parliamentary and presidential elections.
The arrangement was made without the involvement of Morsi, whose whereabouts remain unknown, or of anyone representing the Muslim Brotherhood's political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party. The Muslim Brotherhood, which has effectively been thrown out of power, must now figure out how to respond. The group probably will not respond violently, but it will engage in civil unrest that will lead to violence. Though the Brotherhood is unlikely to abandon the path of democratic politics, Morsi's ouster will lead elements from more ultraconservative Salafist groups to abandon mainstream politics in favor of armed conflict.
