Egyptian Army, Trying to Win Civil War in One Day, Kills Hundreds

Israel’s neighbors love civil war. Lebanon, Syria. Jordan could be next. The Egyptian army learns from Assad’s mistake and tries to win it one day. Morsi supporters’ biggest weapon is the will to die.

Clashes in Cairo between pro-Morsi supporters and the army on Wednesday

Civil war broke out in at a least dozen cities in Egypt on Wednesday as Egyptian soldiers and police, backed by bulldozers and helicopters, carried out an offensive on pro-Mohammed Morsi protesters in an effort to put a brutal and quick end to the Muslim Brotherhood opposition’s sit-in protests.

As reported earlier, there are reports of up to 250 people dead and thousands of others wounded or arrested. The Muslim Brotherhood movement now claims the death toll is in the thousands

Whereas Syrian President Bassar al-Assad figured that ignoring the protest movement would break down the opposition, only to use uncivil force after protesters were able to organize, Egyptian authorities decided to use the same tactic as Hosni Mubarak three years ago and shoot at will to break down the opposition.

Mubarak ended up ousted and in jail. Morsi, his successor who was elected in democratic elections championed by President Barack Obama, is in virtual jail, “detained” by the army and held in a secret location.

If the army thought that the Muslim Brotherhood opposition would fall without Morsi, it was wrong. Dead wrong.

After several days of massive sit-ins that have virtually shut down Cairo, the army moved in at dawn. It succeeded in clearing out demonstrators near the Cairo University campus, but protesters used their biggest weapon – massive human resistance – in eastern Cairo, where massive violence was reported.

Clashes also broke out in Alexandria in upper Egypt, Mansoura, Suez, Giza and Rabaa.

Al Arabiya reported that soldiers are besieging the neighborhood of Islamist preacher Mohamed El-Beltagi, who faces charges of incitement and attempted murder. One of his daughters was killed.

In Alexandria, demonstrators set fire to a government building, protesters attacked four police stations in Giza, and eight people were killed in an attack on a police station in Abu Kurkas. Hundreds of demonstrators clashed with security forces and set public buses on fire.

In Rabaa,  British reporter Alistair Beach said he saw 42 bodies and tweeted, “Pro-Morsi protesters have barricaded themselves inside upper floors of field clinic as live fire crackles outside.” Three deaths were reported in Aswan, and a pro-Morsi crowd threw a security forces vehicle, with five people inside, off a bridge.

Protesters are using whatever guns they have, along with Molotov cocktails and rocks, to attack security forces.

Islamist mobs set fire to dozens of churches throughout the country. Pro-Morsi supporters set fire to a Christina youth center next to a Muslim youth center in the upper Egypt city of Fayoum, according to Al-Arabiya.

Live gunfire was reported in several cities, but Morsi supporters do not have the arms to match the automatic weapons that soldiers and police are firing to disperse crowds,

Regardless of whether the army wins the war in one day or it goes on endlessly, the violence is further evidence that the Obama administration’s campaign to make the Middle East safe for democracy, and vice versa, is not working.

All the United States and the entire international community can do is wring their collective hands and cry over the violence. Typically, the European Union issued a statement Wednesday that the violence is “extremely worrying,” and it called for restraint from Egyptian authorities.

  3. Stuart Wragg says:

    No Chaim. It is wrong to think like that as you then place yourself on the level of the extremists. We can rise above that and that makes us stronger.

  4. Paul Palnik says:

    I will bless those that bless thee and curse those that curse thee.

    solving problems by violence usually leads to moence

  7. Suzy Malavasic says:

    I am a 63 year old American Catholic woman with a degree in Religious Studies… that is world religions. If one knows the history of the first 100 years of Islam, beginning with Mohammad's tactics… thru the conquest of the Middle East… across North Africa… and into the Iberian Peninsula, one would see that nothing is new. Now read Genesis Chapter 16 verse 12… and think about it.

  8. Benjamin Fox says:

    Life to Islamist means nothing, they are willing to die for a false little god and taking your life is a pass to allah, who will be in the lake of fire someday and his followers with him.

  9. Joseph Sanchez says:

    DON'T BE FOOLED, it is all going as planed!

  11. Joseph Sanchez says:

    And the best part of THE HOLY BIBLE, it is 100% correct 100% of the time!! JESUS LOVES EVERYONE!

  12. Joseph Sanchez says:

    OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU ISRAEL!

  13. Obama, Kerry, UE, Ashton, they prefer the light way, only to look over Israel.

  14. But they don't face Egypt, Syria, Irak, Lebanon and Jordan.

  15. Benjamin Rau says:

    the right quality and quantity of violence could just lead to peace and quiet….

  16. Ground Concepts says:

  17. I ts better to Israel and khurdistan the Arab country to be weak At least all the minorities in the Arab world will gain their freedom , Such as Copts, Berbers, Tuaregs and Turkmen, Kurds and other ethnic groups that do not know anything about it because the Arab media blackout.

  18. Ferdinand Torreggiani says:

    Why burn Christian churches? They have nothing to do with the problem!

  19. Anonymous says:

    The mainstream media portrays Islamic extremists as victims. The truth is just the opposite. Islamic extremists are waging wars of terror and aggression in many countries around the globe. Their goal is world domination and the elimination of all religions other than their perverted version of Islam. They kill every man, woman and child they can get their filthy hands on. They murder every Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Jew, Atheist, and even non-radical or different sect Moslem they can in order to frighten the rest of the population into submission. This is what the media should be reporting.
