Protests in Egypt: Your experiences
Violence in Egypt
Essam el-Erian, vice president of Freedom and Justice Party political arm of Muslims Brotherhood, said today "if Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi didn't complete his term no one else will and threatened bloodshed despite protest from Egyptians literally in almost every major Egyptian city now.
Hairat el-Shater, the leading strategist of the Muslim Brotherhood, offered a stark warning saying “Egypt can make its transition to a new order the easy way if Morsi win the presidency, or the hard way meaning using force and bloodshed in the street if Shaifek win. Washington post June 14, 2012

One might wonder how an organization can be thought to have renounced violence when it has inspired more jihadists than any other. Will the atmosphere of intimidation that the Brotherhood’s “politics” adopted will achieve success. How long Western countries will be patient with this terrorist organization?
“Sadat knew the Brothers were bad news, but — much like today’s geopolitical big thinkers — he hubristically believed he could control the damage, betting that the Muslims Brotherhood would be more a thorn in the side of the jilted Nasserite Communists than a nuisance for the successor regime. Brotherhood eventually murdered Sadat in a 1981 coup attempt — in accordance with a fatwa issued by Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman. Does US think what Anwar Sadat thought: Hey, we can work with these guys” Andrew C. McCarthy
Does Obama administration think for a minute that Morsi will hand over hardliner Islamist including Salafies who have link to Al-Qaeda in Mali and Libya in golden plate to the west?
