Egyptian democracy protesters held a news conference blaming the Muslim Brotherhood for the clashes Saturday in Tahrir Square.
Over 150 people were injured during the mayhem.

Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Supporters Clash with Rivals at Tahrir Square–

The militias chanted, “God is great; Purge the square of the traitors,” as they beat the protesters.
A Ahram reported:

The Egyptian Journalists Syndicate hosted a press conference on Sunday at which several eyewitnesses to Friday’s clashes – and some of those injured therein – told their version of events, with many pinning the blame on the Muslim Brotherhood.

The conference was organised by several post-revolution political forces, including the National Front for Justice and Democracy and the Popular Committee for Defending the Revolution.

“Egyptian television was reporting that the Muslim Brotherhood had not mobilised on the streets, while at the same time we were being beaten by the Brotherhood’s militias,”
activist Rasha Azzab, who was in Tahrir Square from 12pm to 6pm, alleged.

Azzab, who had been far from the square when the clashes erupted, said she had not believed reports that Brotherhood activists were attacking protesters until she reached the flashpoint square and saw members of the group wielding batons and stones and chanting “God is great; Purge the square of the traitors.”

“For those who are surprised that the Brotherhood is acting like this, it’s because they want to consolidate their power,”
Azzab claimed.

Dr Yehia Salah, who is known for treating many of the protesters who received eye injuries during last year’s uprising, was also present at Sunday’s press conference. His son was hit in the head with a stone during Friday’s clashes.

“He was hit while urging people to stop fighting,” Salah alleged, noting that the clashes had left over 150 injured. “Someone hit him with a large stone from a short distance, which caused a fracture to his skull.”

A number of other people injured during the clashes also shared their own personal accounts of the day’s events.

As Glenn Reynolds says, “This is NOT what democracy looks like.”

  1. I guess all those tax dollars Obama funneled to the Muslim Brotherhood were used to train members in the best methods for beating democracy protestors.
    Thanks Barack.

  2. And Barry is borrowing money from China to prop up the despicable Egyptian government run by the Muslim Brotherhood…

  3. Democracy will never be attainable for these people, they only understand power grows out of the barrel of a gun.

  4. i noticed their wasn’t a policeman in sight. i guess the government wants this.

    just a sample:

    Obama Administration Stacking the Deck with Islamists
    http://tinyurl.com/8f95e2w

    [Abdul-Malik also makes no bones about discussing how the election of President Obama is a step forward in the project of Islamization and the long term goal of Islamist domination which falls right in lock-step with that of the Muslim Brotherhood as revealed in their manifesto.]

    Jasser, Lopez, Fatah
    http://tinyurl.com/cx4zdg6

    [The Third Jihad exposes the war the media is not telling you about. It reveals the enemy our government is too afraid to name. One person who is not afraid to tell you the truth is Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a Muslim American and former physician to the US Congress. After the FBI releases a radical Islamist manifesto describing how to destroy America from within, Dr. Jasser decides to investigate. The Third Jihad is about what he discovered.]

    [Islamist-allied operatives appointed by Obama are undermining U.S. security policy - explains counter-Intelligence expert, Prof. Clare Lopez. Aimed at co-opting Americas foreign policy in the Middle East, a network including well-known American diplomats, congressional representatives, figures from academia and the think tank world - with ties to the clerical regime in Tehran - is directing the Obama Administration's policy towards the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Middle East.]

    [Today, in the White House, there are three members
    of the Muslim Brotherhood that influence Obama's policy.]

    Egypt: Barack Obama the true leader of the Muslim Brotherhood
    http://tinyurl.com/9rayxas

    ["People here are against the United States helping Ennahda," a journalist told Totten. "All Americans who come here are against the Islamists, but the American government is supporting them. I wish we had a good, modern, respectful Islamic party. I'm a Muslim and I'm proud of it, but I'm not proud of this party."

    The government is seen as far too cozy with radical Salafists, looking the other way as the radicals stake a claim to the new society. Ennahda members joined the Salafists in a recent rally calling for Sharia law in Tunisia.]

    ["I consider the Brotherhood to be a threat to Egypt," said one of the eight, prize winning novelist Gamal el-Ghetani. "We are living a moment that may be similar to (Adolf) Hitler's rise to power."]

    [Reasoning with hindsight every move made by the U.S. in recent months is in this sense. And in hindsight even in other states “victims” of so-called “Arab spring” the situation is the same. In all cases Islamism Salafi has snatched the liberal revolution transforming it into an Islamic revolution very similar to that of Iran. Whether this is an actual plan “hatched” by Barack Obama has everything to prove, but if you look at the facts there is little to be happy.]

  7. “This is NOT what democracy looks like.”
    The Hell it isn’t- of course! this is democracy. Not YOUR kind, YOU don’t like it, but it IS Democracy.

    why is it so difficult for people to understand what the important terms are?
    plenty of teachers have taught the drill, do y’all not pay attention?

    Democracy = two wolves and one lamb deciding what’s for lunch

    the Democracy you’re thinking about cannot exist in a lawless society, which is why VALUES are ultimately preeminent. Which is why W. and the Bushies were so off base about introducing Democracy to Gaza, where they now have democracy and Hamas.

    America’s Founders SPECIFICALLY! avoided Democracy, knowing its’ flaws from history.
    So, they gave us a Constitutional Democratic Republic. Okay, the rest is up to you.

    the same frustrations apply to Capitalism. There is no such thing as CRONY Capitalism. What you mean is CORRUPTION, and criminals who should be punished. (or socialism, or fascism, or elitism, or statism, or oligarchism- but get it straight, puhleeez) Capitalism is all about free and fair competition.

    IT’S ALL BUSHES FAULT!! :roll:

    meanwhile back in what little may be left of reality
    land.. my favorite Muslim is speaking out again..

    Stu Bykofsky: American Muslims
    ‘uniquely qualified’ to sell moderation

    [The Muslims who have trouble with the West are those who do
    not believe in separation "between mosque and state," Jasser
    says. In their Islam, state and mosque are intertwined, but that
    is not the way of America or the West.

    Jasser argues the West is not effectively defending its values, and
    recently told a luncheon meeting with members of the Philadelphia-
    based Middle East Forum that "political Islam" is the biggest threat
    to world peace. The antidote is "moderate Islam," a product that
    American Muslims are "uniquely qualified" to sell.

    Jasser is president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, which
    he founded with eight other Muslim-Americans in 2003, in response both
    to 9/11 and to what they felt was inadequate denunciation of the attack
    on America by U.S. Muslims.

    Since its founding, five of the original members have left AIFD, the result
    of "tribal pressure," Jasser tells me in a later private sit-down. He is not
    usually confronted openly by Muslims - with one big exception - but is
    pressured "behind the scenes" to "stop airing dirty laundry."

    The exception is the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which
    Jasser says sows "victimization" among Muslims and is slow to
    condemn terror.]

    damn, can you picture a P West & VP Jasser??
    toodles to AQ and our domestic enemies too!!

  10. Where is code pink? I thought they were helping set up the “democracy”. Then never seem to show up in their vagina costumes at the right place anymore. Darn!

    “This is NOT what democracy looks like.”

    agreed, however, neither did this..

    oh wait, we’re a Republic..

    that is, if we can take it back from the powers
    that be running Obama’s ruination of we.. :-(

  12. For the masses: last night on The Voice (great show and my escape from politics) one contestant said she was from Egypt and her mother “never was able to live her dream” there as a woman. She was competing almost if not more for her mom, who was in the audience.

    I’m sure not too many viewers got that.

    We live in a great nation where it’s rare to see this kind of violence in the streets. Why do I have a feeling that if this type of violence DID come to America, Barack and Michelle would sit smugly in their White House, looking down their noses at what they created and saying, “NOW we can re-make this country into something better.” I mean, they practiced on Egypt, what’s to stop them from doing the same here, especially with their base dummies? Scary.
