Anti-Muslim Brotherhood Protests in Egypt: Largest Political Event in World History
breitbart ^ | 6/30/13 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 06/30/2013 7:08:41 PM PDT by Nachum

The demonstrations that began Sunday in Cairo, Egypt against the Muslim Brotherhood government of President Mohamed Morsi have attracted "millions" of supporters and many counter-demonstrators as well, making the protest the largest political event in the history of the world, according to the BBC. The protests in Tahrir Square and throughout Egypt exceed those that ousted President Hosni Mubarak in 2011 in the key event of the Arab Spring. Two years later, after constitutional reforms and elections that saw Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood move to aggrandize their power, the public backlash is immense.

Then they aren’t looking to overthrow Morsi. This is a power struggle between Islamists, at most. All Morsi needs to do to hold on to power is to call in his buddies from Hamas and things will suddenly get quiet after they get very messy.

how about millions of us march on SCOTUS and the white house after them becoming homosexual activist judges and a white house which is out of control?

It seems the French , Egyptians , Iranians, Turks, Greeks have more balls than most of Americans today, which does nto surprise as we have so many low info voters who are more interested in who is dating who in Hollywood

So there are more people in the streets against this Islamonazi trash than there were against the benign ally Mubarak.

Will Obama tell Morsi to step down?

Not a chance in hell.

No. McCain was asked about it this AM on Fox and basically said forget Egypt, Syria and arming the rebels there is the priority. He's all hot for another Libya in Syria.

The real reform movement in Egypt is SOL as far as any support from DC is concerned.

Sadly, yes. And don’t forget Iceland, who reportedly went into the banks, physically pulled the officers into the street and told them there was no way the people are paying for their bad trades. The economy collapsed, but they’ve since risen from the ashes and are doing pretty well now I hear.

There is no reasonable way to compare those nations with the USA. The geography alone takes millions of potential American protesters out of play. There also isn't the ideological divide between rural and urban that we have here. Beyond that, I don't want to proudly compare myself to those who have little to nothing in common with me.

You apparently haven’t been reading about this, then.

It is more modern secularist Egyptians that do not want Islamic rule that are massing in these protests. Same thing as in Turkey. 14 to 17 million in Egypt today.

TB2 has a good thread about what’s going on:

Then, like in Iran, those secularists are grossly outnumbered by the Islamists. And Obama is not on the secularists’ side, preferring to side with the Muslim Brotherhood. The MB has been doing counterprotests designed to neutralize the secularists. (Forgot about the big Tahrir Square chant already?)

Also, the Islamists are quite entrenched in Turkey. The age of Atatürk is dead.

Why do you say the secularists are outnumbered by the islamists? If the mil supports the protesters, and it looks possible, than the outcome is not assured.

You are more negative than I am.

I suspect that the military in Egypt have an ulterior motive for possibly supporting the secularists. Think of the MB's stance on Israel, and then think of three words, which I am absolutely certain that the Egyptian military is thinking as well...

(PS those three words are Aswan, High, and Dam...)

Because I prefer the truth to liberal lies. These facts were borne out in polls even during Mubarak’s time; the vast majority of “al-Masri” (Arab Egyptians, vast majority Muslim) are sympathetic with Hamas, seek the destruction of Israel, and want to see a new Caliphate appear. The Muslim Brotherhood would not be in power without the help of the military, bottom line; and that means that the military is now sympathetic to their view.

Reality is not shaped by our personal positivity or negativity. Hitler was not what he was because a majority of people outside Germany were “negative” about him, by any stretch of the imagination.

Morsi was the one who legitimized the MB. I guess we’ll have to see the outcome to know who is right about this. Maybe you are; all I know is gleaned from here and there. One thing is a fact - the media in Egypt is as much a handmaiden of vested interests - currently those in power - as is the US media.

Anyone in Egypt or anywhere else reading only the US media would think everyone in the US is a hardcore leftist 0baama worshipping homosexual of color.

Eastern Turkey was the key to Erdogan’s electoral victories — one current problem for him is that a chunk of that support is Alawite, and they all turned on him when he dumped Assad. The entire Turkish protest movement arose due to the Syrian civil war, and it is going to get worse. And Erdogan (despite what all of us, including me, say around here) is seen as too much of a moderate by the rest of the Islamofascists within Turkey.

Erdogan has maneuvered Turkey into a situation where it has no allies, literally — the only ally Turkey had in the entire region was Israel, and he went to a lot of trouble to nuke that. His moves to make Turkey the crossroads of Near East trade via a new economic community including Syria, Iran, and neighboring states in the Balkans fell to pieces. Iran played him but good.

Egypt has been headed for civil war since the protests against Mubarak. The rise of Morsi was a respite. The Saudis were caught flatfooted, and Mubarak’s fall can be seen as the trigger for everything that has happened since in the region. Multiple factions are struggling for power, and sometimes work together, and other times work against each other.

And ditto what infowarrior notes — the Egyptian military doesn’t want a war with Israel. Besides the vulnerability of a country that is only a few miles wide — meaning Egypt, which still crowds along the Nile — and has one of the largest artificial lakes in the world just uphill, the local politics are so volatile that the army wouldn’t dare to leave town to fight a foreign enemy. That’s been the case since Sadat was assassinated.

The military is no friend to the Islamists. The MB wants war with Israel. The military has little interest in having a war with Israel, a war where lots of Egyptian soldiers will die.

I think a lot of Egyptian soldiers and officers are thinking "If I am to live, then the MB must die".

You haven’t gotten a fact in this thread right yet, and I doubt that you have the mental acuity to recognize that or the ethics to admit it.

In short, you are merely a pathetic internet troll. Ignorant of the world, yet able to spout off about things you know not anyway.

Most telling was that you either didn’t understand the pictures that I posted, or else did understand and lied about them.
