It's not a political or religious uprise. It started with the Peaceful Youth and will always remain that way. It has always been peaceful from the protesters side."

I don't know how will work it toward to change Egypt regime. But if Egyptian hope to change their politics by this movement, it must be changing Egypt regime to freedom. I will support Egyptian democracy so that they are able to be accomplishing Egyptian president election. That is right way for Egypt and Democracy.

Democracy will never succeed in Egypt.

For democracy you need a stable, big and strong majority of the middle class.

Middle class in Egypt is a pathetic minority.

The protesters shout they want freedom and rights, but what they really want is jobs and food security.

Democracy would not emerge in Egypt because democracy cannot deliver jobs and food security.

Good luck, brave Egyptians, you need it.

"I really wish that people get educated about religions. Muslim Brotherhood do not support Sharia, they has clearly told to Khamenei that Egypt uprise is not about religion, it is about human rights and civil liberties."

Well, you could start by educating yourself. A global caliphate under Islam and shari'a is the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood. I don't care what sound bite you heard. Look at their past actions that is more truthful. Seriously, if you don't believe me, read this QUOTE from the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD WEBSITE:

"The goal is to establish one Islamic state of united Islamic countries, one nation under one leadership whose mission will be to reinforce adherence to the law of Allah...and the strengthening of the Islamic presence in the world arena....The goal...is the ESTABLISHMENT OF A WORLD ISLAMIC STATE (emphasis added).

And if prayer is a pillar of the faith, then jihad is its summit...and death in the path of Allah is the summit of aspiration."

Here's their plan for North America (Ikhwan is their name in Arabic):
"The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah's religion is made victorious over all other religions."

The MB has stated and shown they most definitely support shari'a.

He (Creme) also confirms that the Rider on the White Horse (in Egypt) was a blessing from Maitreya to show the immensity of what the Egyptian people are doing, and that he is with them in their struggle for justice and freedom. Maitreya has often appeared as the Rider on a White Horse – an age-old symbol for a teacher to come. Many now expect the return of their awaited Teacher, whether they call him the Christ, Messiah, the fifth Buddha, Krishna, Kalki Avatar or the Imam Mahdi.
