Cleric Calls on Egyptian Leadership to Replace Cabinet

And so it starts, a radical Imam steps in to save the day.

First thing in order; whip the masses into a frenzy.
Second call for the ouster of the rest of the government, Finish what you started people!

And with the Muslim Brotherhood bringing up the rear, Egypt may soon be lost.

Thousands of supporters of Egypt's democracy movement are gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square Friday for a day of celebration marking one week since President Hosni Mubarak stepped down.

A leading Muslim cleric, Yusuf al-Qaradawi called on the Egyptian army to listen to the will of the people and bring fresh faces into Mr. Mubarak's former cabinet, which still includes many of the former president's allies.

The cleric also called on the Egyptian people to be patient with their new leadership. The Egyptian army, which has popular support, has assumed control of the government until elections can be held.

Though security surrounds the square - the site of 18 days of anti-government protests leading up to Mr. Mubarak's resignation - the mood is reported to be upbeat. Demonstrations are expected to gain momentum as the day progresses.
