File under: Arab Spring
#1 The magnitude of the legal decisions that Parliment were planning to enact were both un-governable and un-enforceable by the Supreme Court - and the Military also knows this.
They do not want the country split apart by violent religious tensions that are built by a contradicting Surah and Hadith.
Moreover, it makes the cops more corrupt, thats why they just take bribes. Why get caught between many more than a few Families, clans, tribes, Government business interests, Military "Interests" and all that. Take a buck and walk away.
There was already a Constitution in 1976, Therefore, there still is a Constitution.

Mubarak was more of a Pinochet type figure. I Am not angry at either, really. A Stable country is golden, and they are all messed up but much fewer die and many more are fed in such a state too.
I think those Supreme Justices' chose Wisdom over letting the street crowd go bat shit crazy burning every book in the Courthouse, implanting feces on the wall, and then leaving.
Then they never are able to decide what is correct or in-correct, nor seeing what worked in the past and keeping it; instead of starting from scratch every time with dreamers, fools, and brutal tyrants that always arise in such conditions.
