Egypt sentences 683 to death in another mass trial

Among those convicted and sentenced to death on Monday was Mohamed Badie, the Brotherhood's spiritual guide. If his sentence is confirmed, it would make him the most senior Brotherhood figure sentenced to death since one of the group's leading ideologues, Sayed Qutb, was sentenced and executed in 1966.

It does, however, give a window of opportunity for a judge to reverse an initial sentence.

I can’t help but think that if George Bush pushed for the Arab Spring, the way Obama and Hillary did, they would be calling for his head and all of our media would be calling him a war criminal.

Egypt is cleaning house on the Muslim Brotherhood and any other Islamic radicals.

Good...perhaps a few of the ones working in the Obama Administration can visit Egypt and get caught up in the general round up.

Muslim Brotherhood infiltrates the White House

There were reasons why the Muslim Brotherhood was banned from any political offices since 1925.

If the MB was so hated, how did it get into power in the first place...../sarc

Betcha OB ‘likes’ the idea of mass executions of ‘Enemies (real or perceived) of the State’.

Sounds like a project for ‘Boris the Hangman’ from “Blazing Saddles” fame....

(Don’t worry, just the sound of a man and his horse being hung)
