Emergency law (Law No. 162 of 1958) was enacted in the country after the 1967 Six-Day War . Although it was suspended for 18 months during the early 1980s,  it has otherwise continuously been in effect since Anwar Sadat 's 1981 assassination.  Emergency law extended police powers, suspended constitutional rights , legalised censorship  and abolished habeas corpus . It limits non-governmental political activity, including demonstrations , unapproved political organizations and unregistered financial donations.  The Mubarak government has cited the threat of terrorism in extending emergency law,  claiming that opposition groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood could gain power in Egypt if the government did not forgo parliamentary elections and suppress the group through emergency law.  This has led to the imprisonment of activists without trial,  illegal, undocumented and hidden detention facilities  and the rejection of university, mosque and newspaper staff based on their political affiliation.  A December 2010 parliamentary election was preceded by a media crackdown, arrests, candidate bans (particularly Muslim Brotherhood candidates) and allegations of fraud due to the near-unanimous victory by the NDP in parliament.  Human-rights organizations estimate that in 2010, between 5,000 and 10,000 people were in long-term detention without charge or trial.  
Hitler was incensed by this counterthrust but quickly cancelled his order for the invasion. Then, in a wild gamble that France and Great Britain would not meet their treaty obligations to Poland, and knowing he had nothing to fear from the Soviet army, Hitler ordered his troops to strike east into Poland on September 1, 1939. Two days later, on September 3, France and Great Britain declared war on Germany. World War II had begun. And less than two years after that, Hitler scrapped his pact with Stalin and sent some 3 million Nazi soldiers pouring into the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941.
