Tens of thousands of Islamists streamed across a Nile River bridge toward Cairo's Tahrir Square on Friday, threatening a showdown moments after the top leader of the Muslim Brotherhood defiantly spoke, demanding the reinstatement of ousted President Mohammed Morsi and an end military rule. "Morsi is my president and your president and the president of all Egyptians," proclaimed Brotherhood General Counsel Mohammed Badie. "God make Morsi victorious and bring him back to the palace. We are his soldiers we defend him with our lives."
