Egyptians Burn Muslim Brotherhood Headquarters

From a seemingly irony proof BBC News:

Egypt protesters storm Muslim Brotherhood headquarters

1 July 2013

Anti-government protesters in Egypt have stormed the national headquarters of President Mohammed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood in the capital, Cairo. People are reported to have ransacked the building in the eastern Moqattam district and also set it on fire…

Earlier, the opposition movement behind the protests that saw millions take to the streets across Egypt on Sunday gave Mr Morsi until Tuesday to resign.

Tamarod (Rebel) said Mr Morsi would face a campaign of civil disobedience if he did not leave power and allow elections to be held.

The Tamarod our more like the US Tea Party, insofar as they are not a single party.

Protesters across Egypt have accused the president of failing to tackle economic and security problems since being elected a year ago. His supporters have insisted he needs more time…

Why doesn’t Mr. Morsi just say he inherited all of his problems from Mubarak? And that it’s Mubarak’s fault?

Millions of people attended demonstrations across the country on Sunday to demand Mr Morsi step down. The crowds seen in Cairo’s Tahrir Square were the biggest since the 2011 revolution that toppled Hosni Mubarak…

For the record, according to a tweet from a BBC reporter, the protest against Mr. Morsi is "the largest political event in the history of the world." And yet this news is getting almost no coverage from our MSM, especially compared to the Mubarak protests. Why is that? (Hint: Because it represents another Obama failure.)

But why isn’t Obama demanding that Mr. Morsi step down like he did with Mubarack? The people have spoken, haven’t they?

[S]ecurity sources told BBC Arabic that eight people had died in clashes around the Muslim Brotherhood’s headquarters in Moqattam since Sunday evening. Overnight, protesters threw petrol bombs and rocks at armed guards inside, who retaliated by firing at them.

On Monday morning, the protesters stormed the six-storey building and began throwing objects of broken windows. One protester was seen removing the Muslim Brotherhood sign, while an Egyptian flag was flown from a balcony…

Earlier, Tamarod issued a statement saying the protesters would give Mr Morsi until 17:00 (15:00 GMT) on Tuesday to leave power and allow state institutions to prepare for early presidential elections. Otherwise, people would begin a campaign of "complete civil disobedience", the group warned.

It urged "state institutions including the army, the police and the judiciary, to clearly side with the popular will as represented by the crowds". …

"There is no way to accept any half measures," it said. "There is no alternative other than the peaceful end of power of the Muslim Brotherhood and its representative, Mohammed Morsi."

On Saturday, Tamarod said it had collected more than 22 million signatures – more than a quarter of Egypt’s population – in support.

But Mr Morsi was defiant in an interview published on Sunday, rejecting the opposition calls for early presidential elections.

"If we changed someone in office who [was elected] according to constitutional legitimacy – well, there will be people opposing the new president too, and a week or a month later they will ask him to step down," he told the Guardian newspaper.

He said he would not tolerate any deviation from constitutional order

And Morsi wrote the constitution.

But don’t worry. We have this from CNS News:

‘Believe It Or Not,’ Kerry Says He’s Keeping ‘Close Tabs’ on Egypt, Syria

By Elizabeth Harrington | July 1, 2013

(CNSNews.com) – Secretary of State John Kerry says "believe it or not," he’s keeping close tabs on the protests in Egypt that have brought millions into the streets against Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi.

"Well, with respect to Egypt, I have – believe it or not, even in the middle of this, I’m keeping in very close tabs with what’s happening in Egypt as well as Syria," Kerry told reporters in Tel Aviv, Israel on Sunday…

Which probably means he has been busy sending Mr. Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood comrades even more billions of taxpayer dollars.

    female news people. Why they send women into these
    sexually repressed mobs is beyond me.

      No one ever accused liberals of being smart. On the contrary, there’s lots of evidence that they never learn from their own mistakes. much less those made by others.

      All that matters is that their narrative progresses. If they have to sacrfice millions of people, as with Stalin, or a few ladies with note pads and press credentials. She’s just collateral damage.

      The march towards debauchery continues.

    Obama blamed it on Bush
