CAIRO (Reuters) - Protesters stormed the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood's party in Alexandria on Friday, throwing chairs and books into the street and setting them alight, after the Egyptian president granted himself sweeping new powers. Supporters of President Mohamed Mursi and opponents also threw stones at each other near a mosque in the city, Egypt's second largest, a witness said. Two cars had glass smashed as the clashes moved away from the area. In Port Said, another port on the Mediterranean, hundreds of protesters gathered outside the Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice party headquarters and pelted it with rocks. Some tried to storm it but did not enter, another witness said. In Cairo, thousands demonstrated against the decree issued on Wednesday night.
I suspect these rioters are jihadist islamcists. The Muzzy brothers are too much a quasi establishment type outfit complete with lots of well off lawyers and others who wear neck ties and shave regularly. Morsi is a man who has started out riding the tiger and now is trying not to end up inside the tiger. Executing Mubarak and some other old regime types is how he hopes to fend the jihadist equivalent of the jacobins off. Good luck to him. Egypt may well look like an Islamic version of France from 1789 to 1794 before these pleasantries end.
Boy, who saw this coming.../sarcasm tag on!
We on the other hand manage a comment or 2 on the Internet to counter the Obama communist's dictatorial actions as when it passed the Dream act with that exective order over the head of Congress.
Here Obama has done similar things with executive orders, etc. and the media doesn't report it so no one hears of it. And we who do hear about Obamas communist dictator acts, all we do is post some comment on sites such as this on the Internet and then quickly move on to another topic. When will we all get together and protest on the streets, take the fight to the streets here in the U.S.A. against these communist thugs called democrats?
Obama's overwhelming mandate of the people was what percentage again?
The Enabling Act of 1933, in 2012!
Wow, I didn’t see that one coming!
Coming soon to Libya. Another 0bungles success.
I suspect that the next election will happen only ager another revolution.
ahh... the heat of the Arab summer. Enjoy Hillary!
Obama just showing him the way ... now that he is “Flexible”
