The Egyptian opposition senses that the time has come. 24 hours before the end of the military’s ultimatum, the activists believe it is time to continue mixing it up. When, at noon, the report came in that President Mohamed Morsi met with army commanders in his palace, the crowd in Tahrir square cheered loudly, convinced that the army would force Morsi to surrender.
