"The Brotherhood is outraged by the overthrow of Morsi and demands nothing less than his release from detention and his reinstatement as president." ................ Of course they are. This is their only shot. Morsi narrowly won a year ago only because the Brotherhood was really the only organized group in Egypt at the time, and were able to con enough of the electorate into believing that they were in fact moderates who believed in the concept of democracy. Now--well, now, the cat is out of the bag. Egyptians have seen precisely what the agenda of the Brotherhood is. They will never accept another candidate that is backed by them and the Brotherhood knows this. So it is Morsi's return, or it is nothing short of armed insurrection. And owatonnabill strongly doubts that the Brotherhood intends on just going quietly into the sunset.
