Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi's decision last week to stifle the Judiciary committee's ability to review presidential decisions caused mass protests in the streets of Cairo, and elsewhere.
Many Egyptians have become increasingly aggravated by Morsi, and the Muslim Brotherhood's moves to exert ever greater control of the direction of the government, seeing it as an affront to democracy and the efforts of a people who strove mightily late last year to overthrow former dictator Hosni Mubarak.

Morsi however, maintains that the decision was for the good of the Egyptian government and will not be permanent. Still, the decree feels to many like a power grab that could shift Egypt into a new and dangerous direction.
