"... it is requested of President Mohamed Morsi that necessary measures are put in place for the protection of civil writers, thinkers, and human rights activists whose opinions differ from that of the mainstream religious outlook."
"Float like a butterfly~ Sting like a bee" ~Muhamad Ali~
"Decried daily by secularists at home and labouring under heavy clouds of suspicion abroad Mohammed Morsi showed he had teeth"
