By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
I think that it essential to critically observe the moves and changes in Egypt, the situation is not static. Changes are happening and tensions between political parties are emerging.
The army is arresting leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood. They are clamping down on the all aspects of Brotherhood activity.
The judges hearing a case against the Muslim Brotherhood leadership resigned. They resigned because the accused were not permitted to attend their trial.
This move was a direct attack against the military leadership. The judges were not taking a side - they simply said that the accused must be present to have a fair trial.
I project that the right of the accused to witness and participate in their defense will be part of the Egyptian legal process from yesterday on forward.
