Police open fired on protesters supporting ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi early Saturday, leaving dozens dead. Conflicting reports of the number of killed fluctuated wildly. Reuters reported counting 36 bodies at one morgue, while Egypt’s Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim accused the Muslim Brotherhood, who estimated 120 dead, of exaggerating the death toll for political reasons. Egypt’s interior minister said only 21 people had died and denied that police opened fire.

I have to agree with John McCain on this.  General al-Sissy wrested control of  the government and installed a puppet.  From reading the article one thing is verifiable true.  The invalid Interior Minister is lying about the number of people the army killed.  Reuters surveyed only one morgue and found 36 dead.  That one morgue alone had more dead people than the total the illegitimate government is claiming were killed by the General al-Sissy's henchmen.

Agitation for anti-government

Some Politician really doesn’t like innocent of people, but they have a choice to acting on love for getting leadership.
The holy Quran says “this holy book has text of all for humanity”, but don’t have a text of freedom fighter.
“Muslim could agitate against any ruler around when ruler will make the trouble about establish Islam”.http://azmalhome.wordpress.com/2013/07/20/secret-of-holy-quran-through-humankind/

THE SHEER LUNACY OF THIS AND OTHER BATTLES IN THE iSLAMIC WORLD LEAVES ONE SPEECHLESS! WHAT ON EARTH CAN JUSTIFY SUNNIS KILLING 1,000 IN IRAQ? OR 100,000 IN SYRIA OR HUNDREDS KILLED IN EGYPT? WHAT IS MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD FIGHTING FOR? IS THEIR ISLAM DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS IN EGYPT? HOW WILL ISLAM FEED MILLIONS IN POVERTY? IN A NUTSHELL, WHEN WILL THIS INSANITY STOP, IN THE NAME OF RELIGION???

Don't believe anything the MB terrorists tell you. Ask them why they wouldn't let the coronary examine the so called dead at the hands of the military. They kill their own and we have video proof all over the net then try to frame the police or army. They have been barricading roads, terrorizing innocent people, kidnapping soldiers and crucifying them after excessive acts of torture, using women and children as human shields to prevent any military interference, ..the list goes on and all with audio and video proof. They resort to violence in the early hours of morning Egyptian time because they know in USA that is their morning time and they have only 2 news channels standing by to report to the world their lies, CNN and the Qatari channel Al Jazeera . If you haven't heard more than 22 news anchors resigned from Al Jazeera because they said it was reporting fake news and twisting news to support the MB. Now, our wise military invited all the world news channels to come and witness the dispersing of those crowds. No one has ever done this before but Egypt is doing it to show the world all the lies the MB have been claiming. Come and see for yourself how peaceful the MB are with their bombs and weapons. They have large areas under siege. None of the residents are allowed to leave the area. They are their hostages. If this happened in your country, would you allow it for one day? We have allowed this masquerade to go on for more than a month. This is greatly effecting the stability of Egypt. Enough is enough. Anything I said here I can prove without a doubt. Contact me if you want to see proof.

The impartial media has been lying to the Egyptian people and has been adopting a speech of hatred nothing less than a racist speech.

Al-Sisi is the main culprit of this mess. He should be removed from power, tried for a crime against humanity, and punished severely for killing hundreds of civilian in less than one month of the coup. He has blood on his hands, and there will be more blood. Now, tell me who is the terrorist now ? who has created more violence ? Stupid al-Sisi .... and his slavish followers ....

I advise USA to withdraw your ambassador Ann Baterson from Egypt because she is doing a very lousy job and actually destroying your relationship with the majority of Egyptians. Ah, try to understand that what the Egyptians really did on 30th June was a correction of a big mistake, namely beliveing that MB were interested in the welfare of Egypt and Egyptians. We did a mistake and we corrected it.

So many people, so few jobs, so many weapons -- and probably sophisticated missiles and WMD -- bought from America and Europe and everybody else. 

Now the civil war, a sectarian civil war pitting Muslims against Christians and liberals, begins in Egypt. Who wins -- uh, who will win?  Likely not the side the so-called West wants to win, and that side will ultimately be supported by nuclear-armed Pakistan, and probably even the royal buzzards running Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, and Qatar.  No, I'm not joking. Things could explode in very short order and change the entire global socio-economic and military order enough to launch a War of Civilizations (WoC) that nobody wins

Hey, if we can sit by and watch -- and participate in -- accelerating Climate Change and its likely doomsday scenario, other man-caused events ( WoC) can speed everything up considerably.  We are a WoC(y) species.

The supporters of Morsi are supporters of a strict Islamic state--the worse thing that could happen to Egypt.  This is not what the majority of the Egyptians want.  G-d willing, the Morsi followers soon will realize (by thought of mind or by at the hands of the military) that is not what is best for Egypt.

@TIME & no mention of tortured peaceful anti MB protestors or killings of students whose sole crime is carrying the Egyptian flag?

@TIME @TIMEWorld More shocking than these pictures is the headless and brainless assertion that these deaths followed the use of "tear gas"

stop spreading lies and be professional when posting news about Egypt.  What will the US benefit from turning Egypt into another Afghan.  Egyptians will continue to fight terrorism and fight the terrorist group called MB.

@FaroukAlwyni See now...that's what an MB is like. They like to cuss and never use common sense. General Al Sisi is a "culprit" ...let's say that's true ..how about all those who went on rallies on June 30 and July 27? Were they all Al Sisi? Are you saying all those millions are "culprits" ? You make me crack up. "Slavish followers"? Really? I can show you numerous pics of you MB goons kissing the hands of their leader so who are the slaves? Think before you write so you won't make a fool of yourself. Your Morsi is a hypocrite. I have many videos before his presidency claiming that if only ten people asked him to step down he would. So how many tens can you count in all those millions? All he ever said were just lies to get to power. How many terrorists were given political asylum and Egyptian citizenship by Morsi? Egypt is owned by the Egyptians. It's not the MB's inheritance or property to do with it what they like. Be sure that if your terrorist organization tries to write their lies in English to get world sympathy, it won't affect us. Egypt is its own country. We don't take well to threats by you or any other country.

@Gr8Pakistan your name has pakistan in it so are you pakistani or Egyptian? If you are pakastani, I suggest you don't meddle in other people's affairs unless you are an MB affiliate then you have every right to speak your mind. MB terrorists are all over the world. Understand world...we in Egypt are not fighting terrorism just for us..no, we are fighting for you too. If you are well informed then you know you have 5 MB high up in your government. Think wisely and you'll know I am right.

@secret Terrorist group??? Seriously, are you blind?? Army took over an democratically elected govt. The Defense Minister is threatening to crush the Morsi Supporters, this is terrorism. Morsi supporters are fighting for their lost right to vote which this terrorist Army took away from them. Surely they will face the music for killing innocent.

And, they do need what help the USA can give them.  They are, on a whole, a more educated country and will not follow Afghanistan.
