Before he was overthrown, the former President of Egypt, Morsi
– “temporarily granted himself unlimited powers to “protect” the nation in late November 2012″
– granted himself “the power to legislate without judicial oversight or review of his acts”
– rammed through changes to the Constitution that would favor himself and his former party, which represented the Islamic Brotherhood.
(The quotes are from an article in Wikipedia.)

Morsi’s overthrow was not undemocratic.  His overthrow did not undermine the rule of law.  It was not a coup: Morsi’s acts were the coup.
In the long run, if Eygpt’s military lives up to its promises, Morsi’s overthrow will have protected the rule of law.

Overthrowing Morsi was just and necessary, because Morsi was acting more and more like Putin.
