    "The offices of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the Muslim Brotherhood's political arm, were torched in the canal cities of Ismailiya and Port Said, state television said."

    SOURCE: MIDEAST - Morsi says Egypt on path to "freedom and democracy"

    Oh, look, people don't like the Muslim Brotherhood in charge.
    SHOCKING.

    A look at powers decreed by Egypt's president
    Nov 23,`12 Egypt's President Mohammed Morsi issued decrees giving himself broad powers and effectively neutering the judiciary. Morsi, an Islamist hailing from the Muslim Brotherhood, defends the step as necessary to clear obstacles holding up Egypt's transition, particularly from judges who could have disbanded a controversial assembly writing the constitution or overturned his decisions. Critics say Morsi, who already holds both executive and legislative powers, is setting himself up as a new dictator.
    Granny says, "Yea, dat's what we need to do - neuter dem Supreme Court judges."

    Never fear, President Obama will give these protestors 100 times the support he gave the Iranian protestors.

    What's 100 times zero again?

    This is what the Obama policies of backing the so called "Arab Spring" turned into ... a total fiasco a total failure!

    He served the Middle East to Islamic fundamentalists on a silver plate!

    How short sighted can an American President be?

    Apparently, Barack never read "Nation Building For Retards".

    He was probably too busy reading Alinsky.
