Egypt’s Military Rulers Commit To Civilian Rule

Rev 6:3-4 NCV When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!" Then another horse came out, a red one. Its rider was given power to take away peace (prosperity, rest) from the earth and to make people kill each other (butcher, slaughter, to maim violently, in streets), and he was given a big sword (assassins sword, terrorist, loud, mighty, sore afraid).

The military council ruling Egypt since the ousting of President Hosni Mubarak have reiterated their intention to hand over control of the country to civilian authorities after the upcoming elections.

The council also said that monitors from 45 countries will be invited to observe the Presidential elections.

Mohammad al-Assar, a member of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, also expressed his regret for the attacks and deaths of 20 protesters.

“[The council wants to express its] deep regret over the victims and those injured,” al-Assar told the BBC.

Most of those protesting were supporting Salafist preacher Hazem Abu Ismail who had been disqualified from the Presidential election because his mother held dual U.S.-Egyptian nationality. At least two candidates for the Presidency suspended their campaigns over the authorities’ responses to the protest.
