Turbulence, violence in the Middle East
First Memorial of Maspero (Copts’ Massacre) Video
In 9th of October 2011, Maspero Massacre also known as the events of Bloody Sunday or Black Sunday, a demonstration started from Shubra towards Egyptian radio and television building, known as «Maspero» events within the day of Coptic rage, in response to the residents of the village Almarenab Aswan demolished church said it is not licensed, and because of the statements of the Governor of Aswan considered offensive against Copts turned into clashes between protesters and troops from the military police and the Central Security, finally led to the deaths of between 24 to 35 people, most of them Copts.
The soldiers were so enjoying doing that horrible deeds, they were cheering (Allah is the Great) like their ancestors did while fighting 6th of October 1973 war against Israel!!
The Soldiers raided the surrounding buildings searching for Copts to kill or worse! it was a very similar dire scene to Gestapo soldiers and officers searching and eliminating Jews back in WWII!
Mina Daniel (1991-2011) has been shot in the head, died at once, was one of the demonstrators that day, and became another Icon of Egyptian revolution that “man-of-the-family” as his older sister Merry Daniel used to describe him between her nonstop crying.
The march, which occurred in the memorial of that horrible massacre, was not only about Copts or about Mina and other martyrs, it was about Egypt, you can watch it in the photos that Mina’s flag holder was a Salafist young man!
Tens of thousands protesters participated in this homogeneous march, liberals, radicals, leftists, Salafists, ordinary street men. This march was the largest demonstration since Morsi became the president.
all were just Egyptians, who were obviously against running over peaceful protesters by the national army armored vehicles! Grieving their great loss.
The soldiers who did this awful unforgivable crime had a silly and trivial military trial, without any single exculpatory evidence they just got released free as they committed their crime under psychological pressure!!
And the TV presenter who instigated the crime by crying on-air at the National TV ”Copts are KILLING the innocent Egyptian soldiers” just got “Draw of attention”!!
This is Egypt after a great revolution, ALL cases about killing the protesters ALL the martyrs murderers got released free!!
Last of this filthy Judicial rulings, which done by Mubarak Judges who gave all the involved in The Camel battle acquittal! Today (10th of October 2012) after 20 months trial!!
The Camel Battle (11 dead 2000 injured) was just terrifying experiment just like Maspero Massacre.
Well, Egypt is boiling again, the cheers and signs were against SCAF members (Supreme Council of Armed Forces) who were responsible for series of appalling crimes against peaceful protesters during the period they ruled Egypt after Mubarak.
Cheers were also against Muslim Brotherhood (the ruler party), and Morsi (the president) who has honored SCAF members and gave them the highest decoration in Egypt!
Streets are boiling, “Acquittal for ALL” festival under the sponsorship of Mubarak judges is really Provoking a predictable uncontrollable grudge, maybe we will witness another severe revolution in a few days.
