CHATTANOOGA, TN,(WDEF)-Sitting at home, watching on the internet and on TV has proven frustrating for Chattanooga Egyptian Nasr.

"Lots of things are bad over there, never talked about, always talked about from one side never from the other side, I hope and wish for the clear and democratic right for everybody"

Nasr says time is needed to compare governments and regimes before opinions  should be made.

"I want to compare between each other, if it's going to be the same for Morsi, he has to leave, if he's not going to stay for the people, get him out, shame on him"

At the Islamic center of Chattanooga, members say they are praying for peace and hope that innocent people do not get hurt.

With protests raging 6000 miles away on the streets of Cairo involving the Muslim brotherhood, Nasr has a simple wish for his fellow Egyptians not only in the US but across the world.

"The government take over from the military , to help people to be educated, peace and make everything right"

With Egypt's stock market surging in recent hours and former government activists on a no-fly list, the fate of the land of the pharoahs is still uncertain.
