In this Thursday, Nov. 22, 2012 photo, a protester holds up a poster with the faces of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and current President, Mohmmed Morsi as public anger mounts that Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood are seizing too much power, in Tahrir Square, Cairo, Egypt. Egypt's Islamist president unilaterally decreed greater authorities for himself Thursday and effectively neutralized a judicial system that had emerged as a key opponent by declaring that the courts are barred from challenging his decisions. Arabic on the poster reads, "Mohammed Morsi Mubarak." (AP Photo/Mostafa El Shemy)
