Muslim Brotherhood Militia throws children off roof/no video to hard to look at.

Egypt in flames

Members of the Muslim Brotherhood Militia in Egypt were spotted committing wanton acts of violence following the military coup of Egyptian President Muhammed Morsi. Now that the president has been removed, Egypt is entering a second week of political crisis as opponents and supporters of Morsi are taking to the streets. 1,000 have been wounded and 30 were killed in demonstrations that have rocked the countryside and spurred millions of protestors to converge again on Tahrir Square.

The Muslim Brotherhood has a strong foothold in the Middle Eastern nation. The fragile democracy has been shattered in spasms of violence that have rocked Egypt since the beginning of the Arab Spring. And although US leaders such as Senator John McCain have previously been supportive of aid packages to the country, the notorious war hawk has reportedly changed his mind.

Al-Arabiya reported:

Republican Senator John McCain called for a suspension of U.S. military aid to Egypt after the army ouster of Islamist president Mohammed Morsi, breaking with the official position in Washington.

“I’ve thought long and hard about this, but I believe that we have to suspend the aid to the Egyptian military, because the Egyptian military has overturned the vote of the people of Egypt,” McCain said Friday evening at a press conference in his home state of Arizona.

“We cannot repeat the same mistakes we made at other times in our history by supporting the removal of freely elected governments,” the 2008 presidential candidate said.

This is what Democracy looks like?

McCain’s words seem inconsistent with the fact that he is currently in favor of aid and arming the military rebellion now underway in Syria. The Arizona Republican has been urging American taxpayers to subsidize terrorist factions and petty dictators in the Middle East for decades, advocating for US intervention in almost every single conflict since the outbreak of Arab Spring. But despite the urgency with which McCain has pressed to supply Syrian rebels with arms, Western weapons have yet to arrive in Syria. Time will tell.

Yep. And it's ALWAYS the Muslims' fault, according to some. Nevermind these people have been denounced by Muslims around the world 


Quoting stacymomof2:

This is where bias xomes in. Every killing is attributed to the group that someone disagrees with.

Quoting Kate_Momof3:

 Now there's a question I'd like to see answered.


Quoting stormcris:


Thank you for this link.


Having now seen the video I don't see it as too hard to look at but that is just me. How can you tell who is the Muslim Brotherhood and who isn't?

We should stop giving all these other countries money. We are in debt, tremendous debt. Maybe when we can get our own finances together we can resume with some sort of aid. Ideally limited to food, water, medical supplies and similar provisions.

You are right our own media does not tell us the truth.

Quoting muslimah:

 Well it's 9:30 and I have to be to work at 10:00 so I will make this quick. Just to show the inconsistencies of western media it is actually 74 that have been killed and a large number of them are members or supporter of the Brotherhood and their children who have been gunned down one by one by military placed by Mubarak (the dictator that the U.S.A. funded for 30 years). I Won't deny the violence on both sides but I would like to note that the top leaders of the Brotherhood have called for peace and non violent protest since the beginning of this. Those who have chosen to use violence have done so on their own and are not necessarily members but supporters and none of them are leaders. This is why I get my information straight from the region and not western media outlets who only tell half truths.

 

 

 You wouldn't believe the inconsistencies. That's why we just depend on our Arabic satellite and get the news straight from over seas and it's always different than what they report on U.S.A. television but the funnier thing is even all the U.S.A. net works report the storey different than each other. When I watch from over there they all report the same.

The down side is my huusband is stuck on all those Arabi soap boperas which are not even funny and since he hates the news because he says it's depressing I have to sit and listen that shit too and it's the stupidest shit you ever heard.

The news media is being controlled by the people who really control our country. We saw this in the elections.

If the truth would of come out about Obama and Mitt, NO one would of voted. Why would anyone vote for less freedoms?

When any government controls what you hear than you are not free anymore!!!

 You are right. We also have to consider the fact that A.I.P.A.C. and the israel Lobby have their hand in it as well.

And that also goes for the presidential elections. Your vote does not determine who the president will be A.I.P.A.C. and the israel Lobby decide that.

 While you are right that western media is heavily biased and reports things obviously through a very western lens....I would feel a lot better if you also admitted that sources in the region are just as biased.

Even people there only know some of the truth behind who's pulling the strings and what their true motivations are.  I'm not sure anyone knows other than the puppet masters.

 Well to be honest with you it is a little more convincing when the news that comes out of Iraq matches up that out of Yemen or when the news that comes out Egypt it matches up with news that comes out of the West Bank then Turkey confirms it, then you call family and friends to check on how they are and the news is the same.
