No shortage

Perhaps above all and beyond the present crisis, the crucial manipulation that led to the globally witnessed blindfolded democracy in the first place cannot go amiss.
The old-age rule of 'divide and conquer' roots itself daily in a people torn between whether to combust or retreat. 

With delusion grand-scale all balance is tipped. Days become numbered.

 The orchestration behind the scenes never escapes us, be it the revolutionaries who may suddenly feel obliged to become united with the former anti-rebellion campaign due to a present enemy in common or be it the unpalatable dictates dished out by the MB through the mouth of their chosen and surely victimised leader. Victimised since there are indubitably threats from his elders that surround him in times of reticence or reluctance, grave threats and artful promises that keep him rooted with his heels dug firmly in. He certainly does not rule alone. Furthermore, the former persecution of the MB will have contributed to forming scabs and thickened skins; a self-generating endurance. 
However, with the above noted, there would appear to be no room for compassion due to well-eatablished, wide-scale grievances. 

Adamant to stay seated and in power can only add more fuel to the fire already ablaze and unlike the literal kind, that fuel is not in scarce supply.

Unity requires forgiveness. Forgiveness requires a sense of justice, one incessantly bewailed for its absence.

Egypt smoulders as only more injustices occur, more division and more wrath.
Ironically, a time of inevitable excess.
"... we shouldn't lose the broader perspective that there are fundamental structural problems there.." ~political analyst Shadi Hamid a very worthy analysis

"Mosques should be for religion, not for politics," Ahmed Sultan, a student, told Al Jazeera.

The U.S. government was also the target of anger, with one banner reading: “America supports killers of the Egyptian people.”

The anti-Morsi protests have been organized by a grassroots campaign calling itself Tamarod, meaning "rebellion" or "insubordination", which claims to have collected the signatures of 22 million Egyptians demanding the president leaves office'
