Two people, one an American student, were killed when protesters stormed an
office of Egypt's ruling Muslim Brotherhood in Alexandria, adding to growing
tension ahead of mass rallies aimed at unseating the Islamist president.

A third man was killed and 10 injured in an explosion during a protest in Port Said, at the mouth of the Suez Canal. Police on Saturday said the cause was unclear but protesters, believing it was a bomb, attacked an Islamist party office in the city.

Egypt's leading religious authority warned of "civil war" after violence in the past week that had already left several dead and hundreds injured. They backed President Mohammad Morsi's offer to talk to opposition groups ahead of Sunday's protests.
The UN, European Union and United States have appealed for restraint and urged Egypt's deadlocked political leaders to step back from a confrontation threatening the new democracy that emerged from the Arab Spring revolution of 2011.

The US embassy said in a statement it was evacuating non-essential staff and family members and renewed a warning to Americans not to travel to Egypt unless they had to.
The Muslim Brotherhood said eight of its offices had been attacked on Friday, including the one in Alexandria. Officials said more than 70 people had been injured in the clashes in the city. One was shot dead and a young American man who was using a small camera died after being stabbed in the chest.

He was identified as Andrew Pochter, a 21-year-old student from Chevy Chase, Maryland who had been studying at Ohio's Kenyon College. The college said he had been working as an intern for the US educational organisation AMIDEAST.

A Brotherhood member was also killed overnight in an attack on a party office at Zagazig, in the heavily populated Nile Delta, where much of the recent violence has been concentrated. President Morsi's movement said five supporters in all had died this week.
In the capital, Cairo, tens of thousands turned out for rival events some miles apart and there was little trouble. An Islamist rally included calls to reconciliation. On Tahrir Square, cradle of the uprising against Mubarak, there was a festive atmosphere and a determination to shake Mursi on Sunday.

Mohamed Morsi aide says army will not be able to act on 48-hour ultimatum over political unrest without US approval


http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jul/01/egypts-presidency-defies-threat-military-coup

Egypt's presidency has indicated that it will not give in to the threat of a military coup, just hours after the Egyptian army gave Mohamed Morsi 48 hours to placate the millions who have taken to the streets calling for his departure.

The head of Egypt's armed forces, General Abdel Fattah Sisi, threatened direct military involvement in the political process "if the demands of the people are not realised", in a statement implying that Morsi should either step down or at least call early elections.

The presidency indicated that it viewed the statement as a coup d'etat, and implied that Morsi was safe as long as his administration still had US support.

"Obviously we feel this is a military coup," a presidential aide said. "But the conviction within the presidency is that [the coup] won't be able to move forward without American approval."

The aide's comments implied that the presidency was hopeful of continued American support. They also suggested the presidency was banking on the likelihood that the military would not risk upsetting America, which provides it with significant funding. The US ambassador to Egypt has spent recent days trying to persuade opposition figures to engage in dialogue with Morsi instead of supporting protests.

Renewed military involvement in politics would be welcomed by many Egyptians, who have lost trust in both the presidency and its top-level opposition. Thousands burst towards Tahrir Square in celebration at the news, others set off fireworks. Military helicopters flying overhead were greeted with cheers, and chants of "the army and the people are one hand".

But others were horrified at the prospect of renewed military engagement, and saw it as counter-revolutionary, fearing a repeat of the military junta who ruled for 18 months after the fall of Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
For as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom — for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.

... MORSI OUSTED ... UPDATES:

RT:
http://rt.com/news/egypt-milllions-protest-morsi-458/


Edited time: July 03, 2013 21:23

Huge crowds of anti-government protesters have taken to the streets in Cairo and the army deployed its vehicles as President Mohhamed Morsi refused to resign after the military deadline for him to find a solution to the ongoing crisis expired.

21:22 GMT: Egyptian Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim has ordered to close all “religious channels,” which include the Salafi oriented Al-Nas and Al-Hafez channels, reports the Egypt Independent.

21:19 GMT: An Egyptian security official in the border area with Israel, speaking on condition of anonymity, has confirmed that about 50 tanks were deployed in the area overnight, AP reports.

21:12 GMT: President Morsi’s office has released a statement in response to his removal by Egypt’s armed forces, rejecting the situation as a military coup.

“Dr. Mohamed Morsi, President of Egypt, emphasizes that the measures declared by the Chief Command of Armed Forces represent a military coup d’état, which we categorically reject, in whole or part by all the honest honorable men who struggled for the transformation to democracy. The president stresses, in his capacity as the president of the republic and chief commander of armed forces, that all the citizens, civilians and militarians, leaders and soldiers, are required to adhere to the Constitution and law; not to respond to this coup which will throw Egypt back to the dark ages; and to maintain peaceful behaviors and avoid bloodshed.”

You mean the Google-Arab-Spring?  If you look at the protestors they seem directly opposed to what Morsi and his fellow western puppet dictators represent; opposed to what was achieved when the organic Arab Spring was hijacked.

Morsy role at Syria rally seen as tipping point for Egypt army
03/07/2013
http://www.egyptindependent.com/news/morsy-role-syria-rally-seen-tipping-point-egypt-army

exerpt:

For the army, the Syria rally had crossed "a national security red line" by encouraging Egyptians to fight abroad, risking creating a new generation of jihadists, said Yasser El-Shimy, analyst with the International Crisis Group.

At the heart of the military's concern is the history of militant Islam in Egypt, homeland of al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri. The military source condemned recent remarks made by "retired terrorists" allied to Morsy, who has deepened his ties with the once-armed group al-Gamaa al-Islamiya.

"Egyptians love Americans, but they don't love American foreign policy."

‘Obama Supports Terrorism’: Egyptian Protests ‘Anti-Obama’ As Well As Anti-Morsi, CNN Reports
July 3rd, 2013 - Matt Wilstein

Many Americans have been cheering Egyptians along in their celebrations over the ouster of Muslim Brotherhood head Muhammed Morsi Wednesday afternoon, but as CNN reminded viewers, the protesters have also been aiming their opposition towards President Obama.

Noting that he’s seen images of signs claiming Obama “allied himself with terrorists, with the Muslim Brotherhood, with a fascist regime” anchor Jake Tapper asked Cairo-based CNN International correspondent Reza Sayah how prevalent the anti-American and “anti-Obama” imagery has been during these latest rounds of protests.

“It’s no secret that U.S. foreign policy is unpopular in, not just here in Egypt, but throughout the Arab world,” Sayah reported. “Egyptians love Americans, but they don’t love U.S. foreign policy. Remember, they will never forget that for decades, it was Washington that supported the dictator Hosni Mubarak and his brutal police state.”

• At least three dead at Republican Guard HQ
• African Union suspends Egypt after coup
Tens of thousand gather for Muslim Brotherhood rallies
• ElBaradei defends roundup of brotherhood leaders
• Police break-up pro-Morsi rally in Zagazig
• Obama urges swift return to democratic government

Summary


Here's a summary of the main events today

At least three people were shot dead outside the Republican Guards' headquarters when the security forces opened fire against Morsi supporters as they got closer to the compound. The army denied its troops fired at the protesters. Britain's foreign minister, Alistair Burt, expressed concern and called for calm.

• The BBC's Jeremy Bowen was one of several people wounded by birdshot after witnessing the shooting at the building. He claimed he was fine and on his way out after an image of him appeared being treated for a head wound.

Tens of thousands of Muslim Brotherhood supporters have taken part in demonstrations across Egypt to protest at the military coup that removed President Morsi from office. So far most have been largely peaceful. The opposition National Salvation Front, which backed the military takeover, urged its supporters to take to the streets in response.

• Egypt has been suspended from the African Union following the coup as international concern about events in Egypt mounts. The UN's human rights chief Navi Pillay urged Egypt's new government to stop arbitrary detentions.

New details have emerged about the army's attempt to round up the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood. Salah Sultan, a leading member of the movement, told the Guardian that arrest warrants had been issued for every member of its ruling council. Mohamed ElBaradei, who has been put forward as interim prime minister, defended the arrests but said due legal process should be followed.

• The US ambassador to Egypt, Anne Patterson, and the Muslim Brotherhood knew of the army's intention to take over as early 23 June, according to AP. Morsi failed to find allies in the army to prevent the coup, its sources said.

Cairo Institute for Human Rights Director Says Obama’s Support for Muslim Brotherhood Led to Rape, Torture and Murder
February 8, 2013 By Daniel Greenfield
...
Hassan describes the crimes and atrocities being perpetrated by the Obama-backed Muslim Brotherhood regime.

Twenty-three-year-old Mohamed Hussein Al-Qarni, administrator of the “Brotherhood Are Liars” Facebook page, will not be the last of these youth to die. He was shot in the neck and chest on 1 February in a side street near the Ittihadiya Presidential Palace.

On 20 November, 17-year-old Gaber “Jika” Salah, the administrator of the Together Against the Muslim Brothers Facebook page, was shot in the head with a shotgun.

In fact, while people often write their last wills in their 60s or 70s, Egyptian youth in their 20s — who would normally be planning their weddings — have been found carrying freshly penned wills while participating in protests. But these wills are not written to pass on material possessions to their relatives, as most of them own nothing of value and can only offer their lives and their aspirations to live a life of dignity in their own country. Rather, these wills dictate the details of their funerals: Which square will the procession proceed from? Which streets will it pass through? What chants should be heard?

Rape, which is recognised internationally as a weapon of war, is now used in Egypt as a political weapon to deter opponents from gathering in Tahrir Square. According to multiple testimonies in recent weeks, the assaults differ radically from the forms of sexual harassment prevalent in Egypt in previous years. According to victims and video footage, female protesters are separated from the demonstrations, taken to other locations, and raped, in what appear to be organised, previously planned attacks. The faces of the assailants show no signs of emotion or sexual excitement. The objective appears to be to break the political will of the victims through profound degradation, whether they are raped, sexually mauled, or stripped entirely of their clothes — if they manage to escape the mob. In more than one case, a knife was used to penetrate the victims’ vaginas, and multiple women underwent hysterectomies after being assaulted. In this context, we can understand the attempted rape of a 70-year-old woman known for her political affiliation as well as the sexual assault of a number of men.

Egypt’s Christians in Grave Danger as Muslim Brotherhood Crucifies Opponents

By Matthew ClarkFiled
Aug. 21, 2012

Numerous reports have emerged this week that the radical Islamic Muslim Brotherhood, that now controls the government of Egypt, has begun crucifying Christians in that country.

Middle East news media have reported that the Muslim Brotherhood has “crucified those opposing Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi naked on trees in front of the presidential palace while abusing others.” Those opposing the new radical Islamic regime include Christians, and experts have suggested that “extra brutality is reserved for Christians.”

The ACLJ just sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urging her to take action to stop this atrocity.

Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood, Salafis attack church, loot Christian homes in revenge for toppling of Morsi

"AFRICA/EGYPT - After the deposition of Morsi, reprisals against Christians," from News.va, July 4:

Minya - Among the episodes of violence in Egypt after the overthrow of President Morsi there is also the attack against the Coptic Catholic parish of St. George, in the village of Delgia, 60 kilometers from Minya.

Since Wednesday evening, July 3 groups of fanatical Islamists first looted and then burned down the pastor’s house and church group buildings. "Thank God there were no victims and injuries" says to Fides Agency the Coptic Catholic Bishop of Minya Botros Fahim Awad Hanna "but the alarm continues.

The fundamentalists have closed the roads at the entrance to the village. They shout slogans against Christians, they say they want to destroy everything and now they are trying again to storm the church. The local police are helpless, I called Cairo to ask for the intervention of the army."

The attack on the parish of St. George is so far the most serious incident of violence against Christians recorded in the dramatic hours experienced by the Country. But threats and intimidation against Christian communities also occur in other Egyptian places.

Does anyone know that one Mohamed Elibiary, Muslim Brotherhood operative and member of Obama's Homeland Security Advisory Council, asked the Coptic Pope to urge the Copts in Egypt not to protest against Morsi, but meekly comply with their sharia subjugation?

Mohamed Elibiary is the founder of Lone Star Intelligence, LLC.  He has advised numerous federal, state and local law enforcement organizations on homeland security-related matters.  
In 2009 he was acknowledged in a Congressional Research Service report for advising the Information Sharing Environment Program Management Office on the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative.  
In 2010 he testified before Congress on “Working with Communities to Disrupt Terror Plots.”  
In 2011 he was awarded the Louis E. Peters Memorial Award, the FBI’s highest public service award for “his extraordinary contributions to specific cases in support of the FBI’s counterterrorism mission.”  In 2012 the Office of the Federal Public Defender, a division of the U.S. Court, recognized Mohamed for his “tremendous service” leveraging his Homegrown Violent Extremism expertise in the United States vs. Daniel Patrick Boyd counter-terrorism case.

Muslim Brotherhood Ties of a DHS Advisor Redux
by THE GLOBAL MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD DAILY REPORT July 31, 2012

The Huffington Post has posted an article which cited DHS advisor Mohamed Elibiary as claiming that his name "has been dragged through the mud" by U.S. Congressional representatives who haves identified him as a potential example of Muslim Brotherhood influence inside the U.S. government.

...
On an older webpage from his organization's website (scrubbed), Mr. Elibiary described his background:

Prior to co-founding F&J, Mohamed spent seven years in the Banking and I.T. industries with a background in Management and Network Engineering. Mohamed grew up in Far North Dallas attending Richardson schools from elementary to college, and was a starting left midfielder for the UT-Dallas Soccer Team. Mohamed has been married to his lifelong companion since 1996, and they have three beautiful daughters.

However, California public records state that he is divorced from Nehal El-Ramly who is currently listed as a member of the board of directors of the Freedom and Justice Foundation (FJF). (See Note 1) The FJF website previously stated (scrubbed) that Mr. Elibiary had earned several certifications from an unidentified Islamic University on issues related to Islamic Law and Governance and it should be noted that another FJF Trustee was reported (scrubbed) to be a graduate of the University of Medina, known to be a center of for the Muslim Brotherhood in Saudi Arabia.

Cairo residents: ‘Heavily armed Islamists attacked us’
6 July 2013

AFP, Cairo
Residents of Cairo’s Manial neighborhood were recovering Saturday from a bloody night of clashes with armed supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood who killed at least seven people and left dozens injured, they told AFP.

The violence erupted when residents tried to stop hundreds of Islamists passing through Manial to reach protests being staged in the iconic Tahrir Square against toppled president Mohammed Mursi, who hails from the Muslim Brotherhood.

“The Brotherhood attacked the area with all kinds of weapons,” said resident Mohammed Yehya, who lost three of his friends in the mayhem.

Muslim deaths in Egypt clashes rise to 36
July 6, 2013
http://www.debka.com/newsupdatepopup/4901/

Officials say 36 people were killed and 1,079 wounded in Friday night clashes around Egypt involving opponents and backers of ousted President Mohammed Morsi, as well as security forces. Most of the fatalities occurred in big demonstrations in Cairo and Alexandria.
In Cairo, Egyptian Apaches flying overhead, tear gas, automatic weapons and shot guns were used to drive back Muslim protesters surging toward the Republican Guard facility known as the “Officers Club” where former president Mohamed Morsi is believed held since he was deposed two days earlier. Ten demonstrators were killed and 240 injured.  Muslim protesters spread out across different parts of the city marking what they called their “day of rage.” Brotherhood Supreme Leader Mohamed Badie appeared before the demonstrators Friday night and told them to stay where they were until “we carry Mohamed Morsi out on our shoulders.”

SINAI VIOLENCE

While the Brotherhood has insisted it will not resort to violence, some radical Islamists have no such inhibitions.

On Saturday, a Coptic Christian priest was shot dead in Egypt's lawless North Sinai province in what could be the first sectarian attack since Mursi's overthrow, raising concerns about the potential for further religious violence.

On Friday, five police officers were shot dead in separate incidents in the North Sinai town of El Arish, and while it was not clear whether the attacks were linked to Mursi's ouster, hardline Islamists there have warned they will fight back.

There were more attacks on army checkpoints in Sinai overnight and gunmen fired on a central security building in El Arish, security sources said.

A new Islamist group announced its formation in the Sinai peninsula adjoining Israel and the Gaza Strip, calling the army's removal of Mursi a declaration of war on their faith and threatening violence to impose Islamic law.

Ansar al-Shariah (Supporters of Islamic Law) in Egypt said it would gather arms and start training members, in a statement on an online forum for Sinai militants recorded by SITE Monitoring.
...
Mursi's overthrow was greeted with wild scenes of celebration but infuriated supporters who fear a return to the suppression of Islamists they endured under military rule.

Copts under the Gun: Religious Freedom in Egypt
By  Kathryn Jean Lopez
July 2, 2013 9:52 AM

 As Mohamed Morsi faces the prospect of an imminent military coup, Raymond Ibrahim, the American son of two Egyptian parents and author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians, talks about the situation in Egypt and its implications, in particular for Christians who already find themselves in a precarious position.


KATHRYN JEAN LOPEZ: What could the backlash against Morsi in Egypt mean for the future of Egypt?

RAYMOND IBRAHIM: On the one hand, the average Egyptian has tasted a solid year of rule under the Muslim Brotherhood — and the majority don’t like it, as evinced by the mass demonstrations currently underway. On the other hand, it is a mistake to think that the uprising against Morsi and the Brotherhood is all about rejecting Islamization and sharia. A great many of those protesting Morsi are doing so less because of his Islamist agenda — which many are indifferent to — and more because he and his party have proven to be incompetent, corrupt, and, in short, making the average Egyptian miss Mubarak. Egyptians have been reduced to not having food to eat — and this is their fundamental concern. All that said, Egyptians have now had a taste of an Islamist government — which always sounded great, in theory — and, by and large, they have learned they don’t like it, the hard way.

LOPEZ: What do the Copts need?

IBRAHIM: All that the Copts want is equality — to be seen and treated as full Egyptian citizens, irrespective of their Christian faith. Under the era of Westernization and modernization, they were indeed largely seen as “regular” Egyptians. But, as Muslims went from emulating the West, to having contempt for it — I discuss this phenomenon at length in my book Crucified Again — so too did they begin to reclaim their Islamic heritage, and its teachings, which are fundamentally hostile to non-Muslims, and so Egypt’s most indigenous and native inhabitants — the Christian Copts — come to suffer for it.

Video report confirms Egyptian crucifixions

Translated Sky News Arabia: 'Crucifying dissidents in front of the presidential palace'

Published: 08/22/2012 at 9:57 PM
...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bScOEFGd2M


Under the headline: “Crucified Dissidents In Front of the Presidential Palace,” the report, translated into English, said:


“Samir Omar – Cairo

“Arabic Sky News

Sky News correspondent confirmed that members of the Muslim Brotherhood crucified dissidents to Muhammad Mursi naked on trees in front of the presidential palace. In addition, other demonstrators from the Muslim Brotherhood closed the gates not allowing entry to Media City in the area of Sixth of October as they attacked popular media figures. The demonstrators also yelled slogans denouncing the Farayeen TV station Tawfiq Akasheh and others whom they termed ‘Corrupt Media’ as one attacked the editor of Yaum Sabi’ (Seventh Day) Newspaper Khalid Salah. Eyewitnesses also confirmed that groups from the Muslim Brotherhood arrived in special buses and motor vehicles attacking with signs that say ‘The Media of Corruption.’ These groups then were divided in sections to close the entryways blocking entry and exit from Media City.”

....
Walid Shoebat, a former radicalized Muslim who converted to Christianity and is today an acknowledged terrorism expert and Arabic translator, told WND the Sky News article did indeed exist and that, though apparently later removed from the Sky News site, survived on YouTube (and has since been loaded onto WND servers).

Several Arab newspapers also referenced the crucifixions as a fact, he said, and noted that a number of websites had reported on the situation, including one that posted an image of a man who had been targeted, but apparently survived with a gaping wound in his side.

A teenager has been killed in Egypt after an Islamist mob threw him off a ledge on top of a roof and beat him as he lay dying, local media reports.

The young man, identified as Hamada Badr, 19, and his three friends were caught on camera hiding from a large group who had chased them onto a terrace in Alexandria.

The video, apparently filmed with a mobile phone camera from across the road, show the four teenagers escaping onto a 20ft ledge during violent protests on Friday.

It seems that the bald headed bushy bearded Muslim Brotherhood, the alCIAda flag carrying Morsi "brown-shirts"... have appeared at the head of the enormous crowd and are killing folks... they are doing it in the name of the fed-up Egyptian people... I hope folks are not buying this attempt at crowd manipulation...

Emergency Update




by Tom Heneghan, International Intelligence Expert

UNITED STATES of America - It can now be reported that the Benghazi-British Petroleum (BP) and Muslim Brotherhood dots have been connected.

The Muslim Brotherhood is CIA and British Intelligence.

Accordingly, the coup d'état in Egypt that ousted Mohammed Morsi as the President of Egypt was orchestrated at the highest level of both U.S. and British Intelligence and executed by the Egyptian Military, which still takes direct orders from former U.S. Vice pResident Richard Cheney.

Billions of dollars in trading revenue has been accrued by banking giants JPMorgan and Citibank, along with the Bush-Clinton administered hedge fund giant and NSA money launderer, the Carlyle Group reference the price of oil at $103 a barrel.

Richard Cheney's Halliburton is making out like a bandit too given this coup in Egypt.

The Muslim Brotherhood's Connection to Benghazi
Kevin McCullough | Jul 01, 2013

On Wednesday June 26, 2013 reports began to pop up across the Arabic world citing an internal Libyan government memo that has not yet been acknowledged in the American press.



*Photo Courtesy of Raymond Ibrahim

Multiple sources have confirmed this document details several confessions of the six Egyptians in Libyan custody for the 9.11.12 bombing of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.
The document details the involvement of the Muslim Brotherhood and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi as being involved with and in the funding, support, planning, and execution of the attack.
What is unique about this document is that its content wasn't leaked to the press in some sort of salacious move. This is simply an interdepartmental memo from the Libyan National Security offices in Tripoli to the Ministry of the Interior. Written solely as a perfunctory after-action report as the results of the Libyan investigation in the events of that night.

Good observation JT. Maybe the Egyptian army is running false flags of her own? I guess we will never know. The lying, stealing and murders just never end. Although i am glad to see Mursi being deposed, this kind of thing is making my blood boil. The Egyptian people cannot win. They can only pick their poison.  :'(

At least 51 protesters killed in Egypt as army opens fire 'like pouring rain'
Morsi supporters and military dispute cause of killings outside barracks said to be holding deposed president

Patrick Kingsley in Cairo
The Guardian, Monday 8 July 2013 16.03 EDT
...

According to the army, a thousand pro-Morsi supporters had been camped outside the guards' compound since Thursday, protesting at the overthrow of Morsi, who was reportedly under house arrest inside. About 4am, the army said, an armed group of Morsi loyalists attacked the compound, first with stones, then with live ammunition.

The army had no choice but to return fire, a spokesman said in a heated afternoon press conference. At least one security official was killed.

Even at the site of the incident, no one could agree how it started. Videos showed armed Islamists later continuing the fight in the streets, leading to a nearby pro-Morsi sit-in.

But there was no conclusive evidence that either the army, the police or Morsi supporters fired the first shot.

Those at the hospital claimed the massacre began after a soldier was shot by friendly fire. But at the area near the Republican Guard building, which is inhabited mainly by ex-military families, some local residents strolling the now empty and debris-strewn protest site said it was started by armed Islamists.

"After prayers somebody came here and said 'jihad, jihad'," claimed a man who said he was a friend of both Hosni Mubarak and Mubarak's last prime minister Ahmed Shafiq. "Armoured trucks came and somebody shot one officer and two soldiers. Then people got really crazy broke off part of the barbed wire by the presidential guard and then [the soldiers] started firing teargas and live fire."

Military officials continue to argue that Morsi-supporters ignited the violence, releasing video to state-run TV which claims to show protesters throwing rocks before one man steps forward and appears to fire a gun.

 Mohamad Ibraheem said he was one of the soldiers injured during the fighting.

 "We were there to ensure the safety of the people. When we were there, they started firing at us and throwing Molotov cocktails and bricks," said Ibraheem. "Many of my colleagues were hit by the fire, and the proof is here at the hospital. I was standing in the middle trying to calm things down and someone came and stabbed me with a piece of metal in my waist, after that I did not feel a thing.''

Ambassador Anne Patterson, the Controversial Face of America’s Egypt Policy
by  Josh Rogin,  Eli Lake  Jul 10, 2013 4:45 AM EDT 

A career diplomat takes on what may be a higher profile than she’d like. Josh Rogin and Eli Lake report.
U.S. Ambassador Anne Patterson has become the public face in Egypt of America’s policy failure there. Now, she is charged with restoring not only U.S. relations with the world’s most populous Arab nation, but her own reputation as well.
...
Rather than understand and remedy the perception that the U.S. is supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, Ambassador Patterson is continuing the age-old U.S. practice in Egypt of being the last man standing to support an authoritarian regime. In so doing, the U.S. is once again putting itself in an increasingly lonely camp, contributing to ongoing instability, and hurting its own image and credibility with the Egyptian people,” Egyptian activist and lawyer Dina Guirgui wrote at the time.
...
We will continue to encourage the Muslim Brotherhood, leaders from that group, to participate in the process. We know this is not going to be an easy process, but that’s what we’ll continue to encourage,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Tuesday. “I think that it’s safe to assume that Ambassador Patterson is very engaged in this process, as are a number of other officials, but she’s also engaged with a broad range of officials on the ground.”

Protesters storm Cairo building after bloodbath; Obama cancels war games
By Tom Perry and Alexander Dziadosz

CAIRO | Thu Aug 15, 2013 11:45am EDT

CAIRO (Reuters) - Supporters of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood stormed and torched a government building in Cairo on Thursday, while families tried to identify hundreds of mutilated bodies piled in a Cairo mosque a day after they were shot dead by the security forces.

Egypt's government says 525 people were killed and thousands wounded in the worst day of civil violence in the modern history of the most populous Arab state.

Brotherhood supporters say the death toll is far higher, with hundreds of bodies as yet uncounted by the authorities whose troops and police crushed protests seeking the return of deposed President Mohamed Mursi.
