Egyptians Erupt Against President Obama’s Favorite Islamist Regime

Egyptians Erupt Against Obama’s Favorite Islamist Regime

On the second anniversary of the revolution last Friday, violent clashes broke out in Cairo and other Egyptian cities. There were protests aimed at the Muslim Brotherhood’s highjacking of the revolution with its Islamist-infused Constitution that marginalized women’s and minority rights. Over the weekend, confrontations with the police also erupted in response to the death sentences handed down by a court against 21 soccer fans in Port Said for their role in a deadly riot last February. As a result, at least 50 people lost their lives and more than 300 have been injured in the last few days, many of them at the hands of the police.
“Down, down Morsi, down down the regime that killed and tortured us!” people in Port Said chanted as the coffins of those killed on Saturday were carried through the streets.
