    Bloodshed intermingled with blood oaths early Wednesday in Egypt, as time appeared to be running out for Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy. … Demonstrations elsewhere in Egypt were mostly peaceful, and protest leaders have called for nonviolence. But as a deadline approached on an ultimatum the military gave Morsy this week, the leaders spoke of potential bloodshed. “We swear by God that we are ready to sacrifice our blood for Egypt and its people against any terrorist, extremist or ignorant,” they said in a statement, which was titled “The Final Hours.” …

    Army ultimatum to resolve political crisis expires at 14:30 GMT with leaks projecting draft constitution to be scrapped. Egypt is bracing for a showdown between the military and President Mohammed Morsi, who has rejected an army ultimatum to end a political crisis with his opponents, vowing to stay in office. The ultimatum expires at 4:30pm (14:30 GMT) on Wednesday but the army said on its Facebook page that it had set no times for issuing statements or speeches. The political wing of the ruling Muslim Brotherhood refused an invitation to meet the armed forces commander on Wednesday, hours before deadline....

    Mohammad Morsi says he is the country's "guardian of legitimacy", as protests claim more lives and army deadline looms. Cairo - Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi has rejected calls for his resignation, saying that he is Egypt’s "guardian of legitimacy" after three days of nationwide pro- and anti-government demonstrations, that have drawn millions to the streets. His speech was a response to the protests, and to an ultimatum from Egypt’s military, which on Tuesday said it would issue a political "road map" unless Morsi resolved the crisis in 48 hours. Morsi had earlier dismissed the ultimatum, demanding in a message posted...

By The Editors Egypt’s ongoing crisis has taken its latest turn with a dramatic showdown between the Morsi regime, beset by massive street protests, and the Egyptian military, which has given it an ultimatum to accommodate the protesters — or else. The so-called Arab Spring has perpetually presented devilish choices between different sorts of malign actors, but this confrontation isn’t a hard call. We should encourage the military to act to end the dictatorial rule of Mohamed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi has made Hosni Mubarak look like a paragon of good...

Already without power for more than a week in the wake of superstorm Sandy, hard-hit residents of the borough's South Shore braved a nor'easter Wednesday night, many -- perhaps hundreds -- huddling in condemned homes and ignoring orders to evacuate out of fear looters would take what little Mother Nature has left them.

    The stage is set. Christians in Islamic Africa and the Islamic-dominated middle east are on the chopping block and barely a peep is heard from the left-leaning media. So much for the Arab Spring rebels seeking freedom. They were seeking freedom all right, freedom to kill, pillage and ethnically cleanse without reprisals. Little attention is given in the media to the new crises being suffered by Christians in Islamic nations. With the de facto backing that the United States government has provided the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and other places, they are doing exactly what their manifestos have predicted which...
