Egyptian army ousts Morsi

Here comes the good news in the opposition to Mohammed Morsi: the army gave him the boot:
Mr Morsi, who had earlier refused to quit, was told at 7pm on Wednesday evening that he was no longer president as Egypt's military seized control in a dramatic coup.
More from the AFP:
The Egyptian army toppled Islamist President Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday after a week of bloodshed that killed nearly 50 people as millions took to the streets to demand an end to his turbulent single year of rule.

The announcement, made on state television by Morsi's own defence minister, armed forces chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, drew a rapturous welcome from the protesters who have camped out on the streets of Cairo for days.

Sisi also announced a freezing of the Islamist-drafted constitution and early presidential elections.
But will this lead to a replacement who's not an Islamist? The trouble is that even Morsi's successor is bound to be no different from him, and a Copt is unlikely to be allowed to run for the presidential position there. The freeze of the alleged constitution written by Muslims is good news. But even then, there's no telling if any constitution to follow will be an improvement.

Update: and Power Line points to some disturbing signs that elements of the opposition to Morsi are also anti-Israelists.
