Meanwhile, In Egypt... - Live Feed

Update: The Muslim Brotherhood offices have been set on fire...

It appears the re-civil-war in Egypt is gathering pace. What started at tens of thousands has swelled to hundreds of thousands of people crowded into the infamous Tahrir Square. As the live feed below shows, for now it is lasers, fireworks, but fires are starting to breakout and small skirmishes with police are being reported as the crowds call for Morsi's ouster. Morsi's supporters/civil servants, meanwhile, demand that "the elected president has to complete his term. We will not relinquish this even at the cost of blood."





Some further color via The FT,



Tensions are soaring in the run-up to Sunday, when the opposition hopes a massive turnout will help to unseat Mr Morsi. Dozens of people were injured, some with birdshot pellets, as rival demonstrations by Islamists and their opponents in Cairo attracted thousands of people.


Organisers of a campaign called Tamarrod, or “Rebellion”, say they have collected millions of names on a petition calling for early presidential elections.


The opposition blames Mr Morsi for what it says are attempts to entrench the power of his Muslim Brotherhood group and marginalise other forces.


They also say Mr Morsi’s actions since he came to office have deepened divisions in the country and he has failed to live up to his promise to be a president of all Egyptians, not just Islamists.


The Islamists dismiss the opposition as bad losers at the ballot box who have allied themselves with corrupt remnants of the overthrown regime of Hosni Mubarak, the former president.




"The elected president has to complete his term,” said Khaled al-Mahdi, a civil servant from the Delta province of Sharqiya. “We will not relinquish this even at the cost of blood.”




“Vigilance is required to ensure we do not slide into civil war,” said a statement by Al-Azhar, the venerable Islamic university revered across the Sunni world. Broadly supportive of Mr Morsi, the statement blamed “criminal gangs” who besieged mosques for street violence which the Brotherhood said has killed five of its supporters this week.

Egyptians actually have some guts and brains, apparently two things Americans cannot muster en masse.

Any loser on here mocking the Egyptians; when they protest they're not just facing tear gas - lot of people on here whine endlessly about freedom being taken away while sitting comfortably at their computers knowingly protected by the cocoon of empire.

Anyone who would risk a day in Egyptian detention has balls of steel.  We may have our problems here in Fuck Yeah, but there they will hook up battery cables to your privates and ask politely where your friends live and there is not fuck all that will be done about it when your charred remains are dumped in a mass grave after you give up everyone you ever met.  Of course that is what we all can look forward to if we continue to be so complacent.  Seems to me they are already sending a pretty clear message (via Snowden) that our days of typing posts like this are numbered.

Do you ..... really think .... so?  Definition of a narcissist:  "he thinks his kid is so cute that he puts his picture up as his avatar."  Because his kid is special and everyone thinks so.  Also the definition of "douche."

Tell a narcissist that he's an asshole, and he'll look at his ass and say "fuck yeah!  My ass it awesome!"

Wankers are a dime a dozen. Capitalism in his toe? WTF is that all about. That type of logic reflects the US education system perfectly. Oddly enough he probably believe that was a brilliant observation and has destoryed any argument you might counter with. America, where do all the wankers come from?

We must be opened minded .... and embrace each other's cultural preferences .... who are we to say .... raw heart sushi is not tasty .... and can we lay off the Japanese for eating whale meat ?

LetThemEatRand's picture

So prejudice and blind hatred for people of different beliefs is good, then?  Sounds like a guy with a small moustache that convinced a bunch of people that another group of people were the real reason there were no ass flying unicorns.  The idea of hating other cultures always sounds better when you are in power, no?

The Egyptian people along with the Turks have my full admiration.  They don't want O's Muslim Brotherhood/NSA goons. 

The burning of their offices sounds like ReichTag office moment.  Morsi and the MB have to go. F them.

Bendromeda Strain's picture

A Reichstag moment would more accurately be Morsi burning his own offices and then killing all these protesters in revenge, but your point is taken. The Persian people let a minority rapidly take over and alter their lives against their will. In this way is political Islam most like communism. It is good to see the Egyptians resist Obama's will even if American's won't.

The "Third Way"

The "Last ditch" of Capitalism. Excellent.


End TBTF and monoploly crony fascism.


Add DATA RIGHTS to the mix, shake once, now add a heaping spoon of TRANSPARENCY, then reduce in a separate pot all of the wasteful regulations and laws we have.


Also - Corps aren't people and money is not free speech.






Get involed fellow citizens, notice citizen is not in caps.


The time to decide and prepare is NOW.


Good luck to all.

"Muslim Brotherhood" Are they also on US.GOV payroll, like al qaeda used to be in 1980-1990?

I'm pretty sure they are.

Freddie's picture
  • A lot of those Egyptians are Coptic Christians fighting for their lives.  Mubarak and Assad treated Christians much better than O's Islamic Brotherhood scum.  Also you have many secular Muslims who do not want what the MB is pushing.

What would 'doctor' Hawass say?  "Walk like an Egyptian" he did, to the USA where he now lives.

Dewey Cheatum Howe's picture

And if you look closely you might see US soldiers working riot control since the Oreo had some military members deployed to Egypt to help out the Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian military essentially gave Morsi a verbal no confidence vote by refusing to intervene with the anti Morsi protests. You won't see that in the controlled state media though.

This is the same Muslim Brotherhood who funded and coordinated the attacks on Benghazi and the Egyptian uSSa Embassy at the same time.

This is the same Muslim Brotherhood who the Nazi's funded and coordinated in 1941,..
