Tribunal stages coup in Egypt

I'm no fan of the Muslim Brotherhood (not at all) but it is clear that the simultaneous approval of the candidacy of Mubarak's ex-minister Sahfiq and dissolution of the only elect body in the country, the Parliament, in the same day amounts to a pro-Mubarak coup. The two rulings were followed by a declaration by the Miltary Junta (Supreme Council of the Armed Forces) in the sense that they would oversee the writing of the new constitution. 

In other words: back to stage 1 in the Egyptian Revolution.
