No source yet. Several dead as egyptians storm soccer field after game. Police do nothing, stock market collapses.
Another one?! Same one as yesterday?
80 dead and rising...
Not sure, maybe, checking other sources maybe just a late report to my office, My source on this post was looking at the market impact so likely it is a delayed reaction to same event. Not 100% sure
google is your friend, this story has been posted...
Same as yesterday.
The football league in Egypt has been canceled.
However, there might be trouble today as there are planned protests in Cairo by the supports of the team that was attacked. Their supporters apparently played an important role in the Tahrir square uprising and they are blaming the go vernment for the murders.
Because this seemed like premeditated murder. The fans that attacked posted on facebook before the game that they suggested the visiting fans sign their wills before the trip. Apperently people brought guns, knives and executed the other fans. Some were even thrown off the high end of the stadium - a common execution method in sharia law.
I did not see it posted on FR. This is a significant event and the impact on US markets can be severe. Worthy of beaking news on FR as our marjets open in 2 hours.
The more they fight with each other, the less they can fight with Israel.
Worthy of FR discission.
That brings the total to 280,000,080 since 600 AD.
This makes me put two and two together for the United states:
The US is on the verge of rioting over the economy.
Indiana just passed a right to work law.
The unions are beyond agitated and actually sound like they are “ready to get tough”.
They are planning on a protest event at the Superbowl in Indianapolis on Sunday.
It could be an interesting Superbowl even for those of us who couldn’t care less about the game itself. Just sayin’.
Self-government is an art. Certainly by now, Egypt must have observed enough successful examples in the West.
I personally believe that Islam is inconsistent with the whole concept of individual rights and common respect for all humanity.
No law without order ... no freedom without law. It ain't rocket science...unless you are knuckle-scraping brutes.
Ouch. Are you a prophet?
Who are we to judge a people and religion that has snuffed almost three hundred million?
Whoever put “oldnews” is keyword clearly does not understand that this event has the potential to have ripple effects on US economy and security. This is serious breaking news.
Just Egyptians out enjoying “the Arab Spring”.
Hmmmm I think you might be understating the significance. Or was that sarcasm ?
Whenever you combine radical moslem terrorists (Triply redundant I know) and the sport of hooligans, interesting things happen.
Egypt has become exactly what obama wanted. Another third world radical moslem controlled hellhole
And to think if it weren’t for Obongo/Hitlery. none of this could be possible, good times, good times.
Is this part of a larger plan or an isolated incident.
—Ouch. Are you a prophet?—
We’ll see. ;-)
We are living in interesting times. Something that has been on my mind the last couple of years was that, though you don’t hear about it much, there was something going on in the 1960’s.
1963 - JFK assassinated
1965 - Malcolm X assassinated
1968 - Robert Kennedy assassinated
1968 - Martin Luther King Jr. Assassinated.
That is a five year period. Besides John Lennon, am I missing any that have happened since? And the typical “reason” offered for all this does not bode well for our immediate future.
The second answer here sort of reminds you of today: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090218232052AA65ax7

BTW, since the early 1980’s I’ve had several people in disparate churches tell me that my “gift” is prophesy. That said, “prophesy” includes “teaching”. ;-)
Keeping my eyes and ears open to you my friend.
—— I personally believe that Islam is inconsistent with the whole concept of individual rights and common respect for all humanity.——
The ideal system of Islamic government is the caliphate, a united, worldwide Islamic empire, lead by an empower or caliph, where Christians and Jews are subjugated, and other religious adherents are given the choice of conversion or death.
So yeah, republicanism isn’t an Islamic thing.
By trying to establish a democracy in Iraq, I believe that Bush was trying to indirectly subvert Islam. If Muslims became accustomed to the benefits of democratic life, they might question the worth of a caliphate, and then hopefully, they would question Islam itself.
Very interesting perspective. Thanks for posting that.
You may not have seen it posted on FR because you didn't look back 16 hours.

Egyptian Soccer Game Turns Violent

Sorry, day-old news that has been posted twice already is probably not worthy of "breaking news." And there has been hours of US market trading after this news was out - yesterday.
But I understand the urge to be the first to post with big news.
Wow, everyone I talked to this morning had not heard about this. I suspect the impact on US Markets if any will not be seen until opening this morning. I think FR folks would be interested in following this. I was surprised that it was not already on the Breaking News Sidebar.
I dont care if I get “credit” for being the FIRST to place this story on the FR breaking news sidebar.
It’s hard to judge these things; so the following is PURE SPECULATION:
but maybe the government WANTS internal violence, so as to have an excuse to crack down (and even postpone or usurp the functions of the parliament, under emergency rule).
Well,at least this will bring back the soccer hooligan tourists.
Hmmm do you this Obama is behind this?
“This is a significant event and the impact on US markets can be severe. Worthy of beaking news on FR as our marjets open in 2 hours.”
Crowds of Mohammedans on the rampage, engaged in murder and mayhem, is a significant event? I would categorize it as just another day in Krapistan, no more, no less.
True to moslem form, they’ll eventually blame the Christians and Jews and crack down even harder on them.
