Egypt’s political crisis took a grim turn in the early hours of June 8 when protesters supporting ousted President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, the country’s leading Islamist organization, faced gunfire from army soldiers outside a barracks in Cairo. According to the Associated Press, at least 54 have been killed, with both the army and the pro-Morsi camp blaming the other for provoking the violence. Fears of greater civil strife are growing now after the military removed Morsi from last week, shut down Islamist-sympathetic media stations and rounded up other prominent Muslim Brotherhood members.

If Morsi truly wanted peace he would demand and be allowed to call for calm. . . Muslims killing Muslims and Coptic Christians. . . pathetic . . . Egypt is a great country . . Let's pray and hope they do not choose the Syrian method of solving this . . .

Keeping those who would determine others to be "not their equal" or support a "double standard society or cast society" due to sex or race or religious preference or ancestry out of all government anywhere and everywhere is the only logical and the only reality acceptable for true human beings - others are mongrels, period.

If a group of armed attack on the strategic military buildings ... In the U.S.

United States or France or any other country ... What to do? What measures are

Used against them?

Egyptian people down the streets in the millions on June 30 and on July 1 2 3 and, most recently

The day before yesterday did not burn the palace of the Federal ... This terrorist group and must execute the law

We want to eradicate the terrorists, including those parties that formed under U.S. pressure, traveled

On the basis of religion, there is no religious parties in any country respectable.

Terrorist group terrorize and kill and shed blood, just as Mohammed Morsi, who did not find any embarrassment in that spark in his own mess, and fire and blood for the chair and the judgment seat, and the terrible price for his failure gruesome.

Scene of the attack on the Republican Guard building yesterday, restores sight in the past, is the same for these plaintiffs falsely and slanderously, Islam that jihad.

Scene trying to break into the Military Technical College in 1974, while I think the previous generation that terrorists storm the military pays to the fall of the army and build a state of succession.

'Brotherhood' - as is always - So stupid terrorist and a traitor.

Thrown their children scanned the brain-washed mind Free to die, even from becoming victims, their trades and manipulate their blood.

Traitor group do not find any problem in hitting and confront her National Army, and seeks to drained and besieging its facilities without an iota of national.

All societies have to learn that war is a horrible idea and usually prejudice is stupid goes hand in hand with learning war is horrible.  Europe and Asia have already learned it.  I guess its now the Middle Easts turn weather they like it or not their going to have to learn it because wars aren't just fought on a battle field anymore.  Seems US is starting to learn it also because we are trying hard not to get involved with the middle east after Iraq and Afghanistan.
