An Egyptian woman listens to a speech by President Mohammed Morsi during a demonstration at Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt, Wednesday, June 26, 2013. In abstract terms, protests planned for Sunday, June 30 aiming to force out Egypt's Islamist president violate a basic principle of democracy: If an election has been held, all must respect the results, otherwise it's political chaos. Supporters of Morsi have been angrily making that argument for days. Those behind the protests insist he lost the legitimacy of that election victory by power grabs and missteps.
