We tried, it was called Occupy Wall Street and the majority of the population didn't cared or listened. Then again, people in Egypt faced issues far worst than anything that will ever happen in this country.

It didn't help that our media wanted to paint them as some college kid hippies wanting a free handout. They had a vested interest not to support the movement. **** our corporate media.

Looks like the Egyptians know what's up.

Doug Ross @ Journal: 15 Photos From the Tahrir Square Protests You'll Never See In Legacy Media. #Egypt #Morsi #Obama



A good Q&A article about the happenings going on in Egypt.

BBC News - Q&A: Egypt military ousts Morsi



My favorite one:






Law says the U.S. is required to cut aid after coups. Will it?

My guess is we do not. They need to buy off the next guy that leads.

This 12 year old Egyptian kid is smarter than a majority of the American people.

Re: All things Middle East related

Radical Islamist group threatens violence after Egypt Morsi overthrow

A new Islamist group has announced its formation in Egypt, calling the army's ousting of Mohamed Morsi a declaration of war on its faith and threatening to use violence to impose Islamic law.

Ansar Al-Sharia in Egypt said it would gather arms and start training its members, in a statement posted on an online forum for militants in the country's Sinai region Friday and recorded by the SITE Monitoring Service.

The army's move, which was backed by mass rallies across Egypt, has raised fears Islamists could desert officially recognised groups like Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood and move to more militant movements.


More militant? Yikes!

Ansar Al-Sharia said in its statement that the military overthrow, the closing of television channels and the death of Islamist protesters all amounted to "a war declared against Islam in Egypt," SITE reported.

The group blamed the events on "criminal" secularists, supporters of Mubarak and Egyptian Coptic Christians, state security forces and army commanders, who they said would turn the country into "a crusader, secular freak."

It denounced democracy as an "infidel system" and said it would instead champion Islamic law, or Sharia, acquire weapons and train to allow Muslims to "deter the attackers, preserve the religion and empower the Sharia of the Lord," SITE reported.


What a shocker......

The reason he is so smart because at age 12 he is only in 1st grade. So that means he is not a product of public schools. LOL

Jets player facing the same kind of anti-Palestinian bigotry that sadly we've sometimes seen on the Warpath.

What Aboushi and the Jets said in the article was good, rather than throwing insults. The labels "extremist", "bigoted", "racist", etc. get used too much in politics nowadays, whenever there's disagreement. (tea party, Obama, the Zimmerman trial, etc.) The article was a nice change from that.

Re: All things Middle East related

File this under 'Don't work in Dubai':

A young Norwegian woman has been sentenced to 16 months in jail after she reported a rape in Dubai.

The 25-year-old was in the United Arab Emirates on a business trip when she was raped and reported the assault to the local police.

Dubai police did not believe her, and instead took her passport and jailed her on suspicion of having had sex outside marriage.

Dafuq!

Re: All things Middle East related

Dubai ruler pardons Norwegian woman convicted after she reported rape - CNN.com

Quite a story. Amazing even in a "moderate" middle east country this occurs and to a foreign national on top of that. Check out the recent history:

The United Arab Emirates has been heavily criticized by rights groups, which say it condones sexual violence against women. Human Rights Watch has called its record "shameful," saying it must change the way it handles such cases.

In December 2012, a British woman reported being raped by three men in Dubai. She was found guilty of drinking alcohol without a license and fined.

In January 2010, a British woman told authorities she was raped by an employee at a Dubai hotel. She was charged with public intoxication and having sex outside of marriage.

An Australian woman reported in 2008 that she was drugged and gang-raped. She was convicted of having sex outside marriage and drinking alcohol, and she was sentenced to 11 months in prison

Would love to see a travel boycott by the US and Europe

Re: All things Middle East related

Yes, and this horrific tale from 2007 makes it seem far more frequent than Dubai authorities would like people to think:

15 year old French boy

There were, in fact, three Emirati men in the car, including a pair of former convicts ages 35 and 18, according to Alex. He says they drove him past his house and into a dark patch of desert, between a row of new villas and a power plant, took away his cellphone, threatened him with a knife and a club, and told him they would kill his family if he ever reported them.

Then they stripped off his pants and one by one sodomized him in the back seat of the car. They dumped Alex across from one of Dubai’s luxury hotel towers.


And quite a few more.
