They were angry at the announcement Thursday by Morsy’s spokesman that the president issued an order preventing any court from overturning his decisions.
Morsy also ordered retrials and new investigations into the deaths of protesters during last year’s uprising against

A small protest outside our embassy in Tunisia. Other in Morocco and Sudan. Flag burned in Gaza (but that could just be because it’s Thursday). Large violent protests in Egypt and Yemen. But Libya seems to be trying to stay on the sane side and there are indication Libyan government forces fought to defend our ambassador (although security seems to have been generally inadequate). And the supposed offending film keeps getting more mysterious.
But … Read more
Isn’t that what this is?
The US ambassador to Libya is among four Americans killed in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, President Barack Obama has confirmed.
Unidentified armed men stormed the grounds overnight amid uproar among Muslims over a US-produced film said to insult the Prophet Muhammad.
They shot at buildings and threw handmade bombs into the compound.
It is still unclear how the ambassador, J Christopher Stevens, and the others
Well, at least the Egyptians decided to do something to honor the day:
Angry protesters climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo on Tuesday and hauled down the American flag, replacing it with a black standard with Islamic emblems, apparently in protest of the production of a film thought to insult the Prophet Mohammed.
The incident prompted a volley of warning shots to be fired as a large crowd gathered outside, said CNN
I’ve been somewhat puzzled by the gleeful reaction to Hillary Clinton’s motorcade being pelted with shoes and tomatoes in Egypt. Is anti-Americanism a good thing now? I always hated it when the Left would get smug about anti-Bush protests. Clinton has been — and I hate to say this — a decent Secretary of State. She’s worked her ass off, done nothing to undermine the President and managed to smooth over their innumerable fuck-ups. That … Read more
I keep writing posts on Egypt and then deleting them. It appears that the military is simply not going to allow the Muslim Brotherhood to win the elections, having dissolve parliament and delaying the Presidential election results. While it’s tempting to think this is a good move, I have to agree that supporting another junta is likely to backfire on us in a big way.
I don’t envy Obama having to navigate these waters but … Read more
Egyptian protestors had no idea the consequences of getting put on the cover of Time, but one thing I want to know, who sent Fullerton Police Department to Cairo?
Much of this stuff is absolutely brutal, and I seriously doubt those are rubber bullets being used.
That the Islamists are predicted to have scored big in the Egyptian elections if you were watching the usual LSM DNC propaganda outlets.
Judges overseeing the vote count in Egypt’s parliamentary elections say Islamist parties have won a majority of the contested seats in the first round. The judges spoke on condition of anonymity because official results are expected to be released later Thursday.
They say the Muslim Brotherhood could take 45 percent of the
And by “This”, I mean the disclosure that U.S. officials have met members of the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party for whatever godforsaken reason. Lets take a look at this fluff piece:
(Reuters) – U.S. officials have met members of the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party, a U.S. diplomat said, after Washington announced it would have direct contacts with Egypt’s biggest Islamist group whose role has grown since U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak was ousted. Washington announced the
Yeah, nothing like democracy in action:
Protesters broke into the Israeli Embassy in Cairo Friday and dumped documents out of the windows as hundreds more demonstrated outside, prompting the ambassador and his family to leave the country. The unrest was a further worsening of already deteriorating ties between Israel and post-Hosni Mubarak Egypt.
Egyptian police made no attempt to intervene during the day as crowds of hundreds tore down an embassy security wall with
