Quite a frightening standoff..so many primeval forces at work..but the true spirit of the people perhaps subdued by the aggressive postures of the Military and the Brotherhood..the skill is to find a middle way..sadly the Rules of Transition to a civilian govt were perhaps never formalised..one can only hope loss of innocent lives can be reduced pl

im not surprised none of these photos show the crimes performed by the MB!! burning of churches and the university!! Armed "peacefull" demonstartions such as friday in zamalik? use of firearms underthe procetion of a mosque!! throwing a truck of a bridge with solders in it (solders were unarmed).

not saying there wasnt any violence from the army. but these pics seem kind of biased!!

when millions cry out with one voice, they will be  heard. (the Muslim brotherhood's) the military government in Cairo, panicked to what millions can do, and responded with panic. (that should not have been the kind of response). Success does not come to those who use muscles but those who use brains. it our prayer to the almighty God. That our brothers in Egypt should forgive each other. otherwise they are headed for the like of Syria, Libya etc. THEY SHOULD BE CAREFUL AND SURE THAT THEY ARE NOT MISLEAD BY THOSE WHO MAY CLAIM TO BE HELPING.

Satyagraha threw the British out of India. Remember Ghandi ! 

Free speech has NOTHING to do with weapons. 

The British slaughtered 500 trapped, unarmed civilians in a courtyard, in the 1940s. The whites in South Africa slaughtered thousands of tribal Africans while Mandela was in jail for 30 years. John Lennon, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Ghandi, millions of Soviets, were all killed by military-minded powerful men. 

Nowhere; not Detroit, or Tienemen Square, or South Africa, or Berlin, or Paris, or anywhere else, have the United People, EVER BEEN DEFEATED. 

All we are saying is, GIVE PEACE A CHANCE !!! 

We SHALL overcome. 

With Love, 

Peace ....

@Ty Hiebert I don't support muslim brotherhood but Im a human and Im against violence and against this high numbers of dead people it's madness ,,Simple conclusion: There are those who have committed horrendous crimes on both sides (MB & Army/Police), however here are the main differences:


- Army/police personnel that fall victim to Morsy's supporters will be properly compensated, their rights will not be ignored... while army/police personnel that have committed horrendous crimes will go unquestioned for their crimes.

On the other hand, Morsy supporters that fall victim to the army/police will be ignored and demonised... while Morsy supporters that commit horrendous crimes will be punished, unlike their army/police counterparts.

And I won't even bring up the tremendous difference in quantities of victims on both sides
