Tomorrow’s announced protests will mean another standoff in Egypt. This time however it will be between president Morsi from the Muslim Brotherhood and the opposition. The opposition accuses Morsi of hijacking the revolution, Morsi on the other hand accuses the opposition to be consisting of remnants of the old Mubarak regime. Al Jazeera’s Hoda Abdel Hamid talked about feeling a lot of anxiety among Egyptians concerning whom may prove victorious in this conflict between the two parties. The opposition seems to be well organized having pointed, among others, a task force for the protection of protesters and one protecting women from sexual harassment.

What the role of the army will be in tomorrow’s events has to become clear. Army official did state the military force would not stand by and watch the country slip into chaos.

Whatever happens tomorrow will be yet another day of unrest and uncertainty, yet another opportunity for the Egyptian people to write its own history.
