Seattle area Egyptions don't know whether to celebrate or demonstrate.

Takek Dawoud is part of a group of Egyptian citizens who work at Microsoft in Redmond.

Two years ago, they demonstrated at Westlake Park in support of the Arab Spring uprising.

Last year, they stood at Bellevue Square to celebrate President Mubarak's downfall and demonstrate against the rule of Morsi.

Now,  Morsi's demise.

"I'm happy he's gone because he was leading us down a dead end," said Dawoud.

But, Dawoud is concerned about the army's power.

"Whenever the army comes in there are risks involved."

Dawoud adds, "I don't know yet what the army's going to do. Most of us are watching, trying to understand."
