Thanks Cal for the link to the article Jeffrey Fleishman. I fear that this may continue with more bloodshed yet to be seen. I had high hopes that Egypt would eventually become a secular democracy. Read and noted.

It took a very long time to establish democracy in this nation and it'll take even longer in Egypt. Muslim Brotherhood forces are intent on establishing a huge theocracy and they'll kill everyone who disagrees.

Reforming a culture is an almost impossible job...and EVERYONE has to want it.

I wish them luck.

I'm such an atheist, but I agree with Pam W - with the exception - that we're slowly finding our own democracy at risk - from the plutocrats to the "born agains" - theology seems to poke its ugly face against peace and democracy everywhere -- maybe China and the (USSR) were right to outlaw religion -- at least that subject wouldn't interfere with reason (though it hasn't succeeded)

It's good to see ordinary Egyptians fighting back against these Muslim Brotherhood thugs. I hope they are successful and run them out of Cairo.

What has happened to Egypt is ONE of the greatest political tragedies of this year.

Morsi has actually done the Egyotians a favour as they now can see what he is really about -it was all tagiyya -deception -in the name of Islam and it's thugs -the muslim brotherhood.

America put Mubarak in power and, although people complained that he was a terrible dictator, pictures of his time in power show that the people had Western style freedoms even though Christians suffered.

Now women are degraded and Western women can be sexually assaulted at whim. The Muslim Brotherhood has no concern over the well being of the people of the country and women have now become second class citizens. Slavery is now out in the open and paedophilia is about to become "legal". Christians are fleeing in their thousands and there is a real threat of destruction to one of the WORLD'S greatest historical treasures, the Pyramids. One can only assume that they do not like the reminders that they are invaders and not the genuine residents of the country.

Evil breeds evil and Islam is most certainly that.
