Hardliner Islamists torched the liberal Wafd Party headquarters in Cairo today.
Al-Arabiya reported:

The headquarters of Egypt’s Wafd Party in Cairo was torched on Saturday by supporters of Salafi Islamist politician Hazem Salah Abu Ismail, an Al Arabiya correspondent reported.

The liberal party’s deputy chairman Fouad Badrawi was injured in the attack, in which the radical Islamist’s supporters managed to break into the party’s building despite heavy security presence.

El-Said Badawi, head of the Wafd Party, told Al Arabiya in an interview, “Today, the Egyptian state, represented by the ministry of interior, has collapsed. The ministry cannot maintain order, allowing militias to roam freely in the country.”

The when law enforcement falls, the law of the jungle prevails,” Badawi said.

The violence broke out as Egyptians voted in a referendum on a new constitution intended to pull the country out a growing political crisis.

The Wafd party had pulled out from the Constituent Assembly that drafted a controversial constitution that was put to vote on Saturday.

Supporters of Abu Ismail had targeted media offices and liberal opposition groups accusing them of trying to sabotage constitutional referendum.

    Thanks for the great article. This is the future of America–if we let these savages in.

    Our country is being invaded by 6 million 3rd world aliens every year, most of whom are here legally as our own govt. gave them visas.

    So who is bribing our politicians to give them visas to Muslims too? All this is happening because of only one reason: the Jewish lobby has ordered the Democratic party (which they own), the State Dept. and other govt. officials to totally destroy America by the alien invasion.

    The Jewish lobby is the most powerful lobby in the US and half of all contributions to Democrats (who work as their hit-men) are from the Jewish lobby. The lobby’s biggest goal is to exterminate their biggest enemy, White Christians and their nations like America by unleashing a massive flood of 3rd world alien invasion into the US and Europe, while promoting the exact opposite for Israel. See “Culture of Critique”, by Kevin McDonald, reviewed/available on:


    The Judaists spit on Christians in Israel, call Mother Mary a ..ho… and say JESUS IS BOILING IN EXCREMENT IN HELL in their Talmud.

    For proof, see “Talmud Unmasked” by Rev. Pranthis.


    They are not afraid of destroying America through the alien invasion as they believe they will emigrate to Israel (aliya), which is their “insurance policy” and their true home.

    0bama was celebrating these deaths with chants of death to america and compelling his democrats to try and abolish the US constitution and get sharia law introduced into it.
    ….or at least rewrite the constitution and replace it with the new us constitution with the communist manifesto at it’s core….

    …so that liberals can create and follow their dream of the communist utopia…
