CAIRO — Weeping relatives in search of loved ones uncovered the faces of the bloodied, unclaimed dead in a Cairo mosque near the smoldering epicenter of support for ousted President Mohammed Morsi, as the death toll soared past 600 Thursday from Egypt´s deadliest day since the Arab Spring began. World condemnation widened for the bloody crackdown on Morsi´s mostly Islamist supporters, including an angry response from President Barack Obama, who canceled joint U.S.-Egyptian military maneuvers. Violence spread Thursday, with government buildings set afire near the pyramids, policemen gunned down and scores of Christian churches attacked. As turmoil engulfed the country,

The Muslim Brotherhood wants nothing but peace. Who is shooting down the police? Must be some tea party people on the loose! /sarc

It gives me hope that the entire middle east doesn’t love the MB extremists, and is willing to fight them. Islamic extremism has to be stopped NOW, and the non- brainwashed Egyptians are the only ones showing any balls in this fight.

All of this could have been avoided if only it weren’t for the darn internet video.

638 dead as a result of Hillary Benghazi’s “unbelievably accomplished” screwups as SOS. Give her the Nobel Peace prize.

The Muslim world embraces an ideology (disguised as religion) which does not respect or guarantee liberty, property rights, and the rule of law, and they wonder why they live in a cesspool of grinding poverty and endless violence.

All of the violence in Egypt has been caused by that rodeo clown with the Obama mask.

So of the 638 dead how many do you think were shot by the army and how many were shot by the Muslim Brotherhood to make it look like the army was doing all the shooting?

I presume 99.98%.

The Media, UN and US Guv care .00000001%. They collectively care as much for the Coptic Christians as they have for Serbia's Christians AND Nigerian & Sudanese Christians.

Until they embrace individual liberty, property rights, and the rule of law, they are doomed to live in a cesspool of squalor and violence. We reap what we sow.

They likely won’t even think of embracing such external good things until they are spiritually right. Islam isn’t “just another religion of decent people.” It is spiritual rotgut. There’s a real God and Creator, Allah ain’t Him, and God won’t be mocked.

...and today, for Friday prayers, they’re coming back for more lead! Got to love those death wish Muzzies, they love to die and kill real good! In the words of Knute Rocke’s Notre Dame fight song:

“Hit ‘em again, hit ‘em again, harder! harder”!
“Hit ‘em again, hit ‘em again, harder! harder”!
“Hit ‘em again, hit ‘em again, harder! harder”!

I wonder of the Nobel peace people still think Obama was a good choice for their prise? Obama and his clowns have screwed up American foreign Policy for then next twenty years. We will once again become the most hated nation on the planet. When the big war comes (and it will folks) who will be our allies? Who will be on our side when the world is against us? Whats going to happen to the people in the inner cities when then free stuff drys up? Look well at Egypt for the day may come when America will look like that. Gun fights in the streets, burning churches, the dead stacking up as armored Police shoot down any who oppose the people in charge!

Indeed. The MB is organizing a "march of anger", hoping to mobilize millions. Should be interesting. I hope the people and their military send those MB loons back to the stone age.

Except for the source being Black, they might try to blame it on the Harriet Tubman Sex Tape...
