Egyptian woman gives birth to ‘Tamarod’ in Tahrir Square

As protests stew and grow in opposition to the Muslim Brotherhood regime of Mohamed Morsi one year after taking power, one new life joined the protest and was even given the name “Rebel” or “Tamarod” , named after the opposition group marching on the Presidential Palace this weekend.

The unnamed Egyptian woman gave birth to the baby girl at a  field hospital in Tahrir Square and she was given the name Tamarod Mohammed, after the political opposition movement, according to an Al Arabiya report.

“God bless the revolution’s new born baby ‘Tamarod,’”read the opposition group’s website.

Tamarod or “Rebel” is the newest political campaign in Egypt. The movement was organized by ordinary groups of people seeking to withdraw confidence from President Mohamed Morsi, according to the Washington Post.

Tamarod has started a petition to express dissatisfaction with Morsi, and so far has collected 22 million signatures. The signatories include students, workers, street vendors, police officers and employees. In other words, they represent ordinary Egyptians who reject the current Islamist regime. Their goal is to establish a democratic state.

Even in war torn Syria, criticisms of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood are being reported through official channels.

“It is clear the Muslim Brotherhood is incapable…of running the state in Egypt. Their model has failed for ever,”Syria’s Information Minister Omran al-Zohbi said on Monday.

“The Muslim Brotherhood’s regime in Egypt is dead, but the death certificate has not yet been published,” the minister said.

Today, the Egyptian army has asked President Mohamed Morsi to resolve huge protests against his rule or face intervention within 48 hours. Who’s really in power in Egypt?
