The title of a recently released Yahoo! article is “Egyptians CLASH at Muslim Brotherhood offices” (Web-site/URL: http://news.yahoo.com/egyptians-clash-muslim-brotherhood-offices-162754748.html).
“Thousands of opponents and supporters of Egypt’s POWERFUL Muslim Brotherhood CLASHED Friday (March 22, 2013) near the ISLAMIST group’s Cairo headquarters, where riot police guarded the building”. Again “Islamist” is EXTREMELY problematic because of some OUTRAGEOUS practices such as FORCING women to wear THE VEIL and of course we know how PROBLEMATIC the “force and pain technique is” and how CONTROVERSIAL THE VEIL is (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbIhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtwHYQgdmvw).
“YOUNG MEN THREW STONES and CHANTED AGAINST Islamist President Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood supporters near the office. Some wielded TREE BRANCHES and BROKEN BOTTLES” in scenes reminiscent of the 2011 revolution that toppled former dictator/strongman HOSNI MUBARAK. Also, notice } Young MEN“. This reinforces as LARA LOGAN mentioned in her interview after her assault that “so many Egyptian men admit to sexually harassing women and THINK IT’S PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE“ (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bO12X1nhzzk). This reinforces the fact that in many Arab societies and CHINA, HONG KONG and TAIWAN, men are expected to be MACHO and that they have to do EVERYTHING. Well the consequences of this are plain and simple. We have two EXTREMES. In Arab societies, sexual assault and other abuses of women FORCES THEM INTO SUBMISSION. At the other extreme especially nowadays in CHINA, HONG KONG and TAIWAN, WOMEN have BECOME the aggressors because they WANT TO only STAY AT HOME, DO NOTHING and WAIT FOR PREGNANCY. The battle over GENDER EXPECTATIONS ISN’T going away any time soon and has become a taboo topic in both Asia and the Middle East. Unfortunately, the PERFECT balance between family and career is a LONG way off.
“Police DID NOT INTERFERE or try to to break up the two sides fighting a few blocks away from the building”. Well, this is EXPECTED (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI) because as we know Egyptian police have proven to be COMPLETELY INEPT.
“Fatima Khalifa, 30, said she was demonstrating to send a message to the Brotherhood that THEY are THE AGGRESSORS” obviously. “Morsi must be tried for killings of protesters just like Mubarak”. So we’ve replaced one horrible dictator (Mubarak) with ANOTHER HORRIBLE DICTATOR (Morsy) Things clearly AREN’T getting any better.
“Ahmed Abdel-Hai rushed one of the injured Brotherhood members to an ambulance.
“He said the man was BEATEN after protesters allegedly saw him FIRING BIRD SHOT” which is essentially TIT-FOR-TAT violence making this a case of “We think they made us mad; they think we made them mad and here we go” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“as his hands and face were STAINED WITH BLOOD from the wounded Brotherhood man, whose face and HALF NAKED BODY were COVERED WITH BLOOD and BRUISES“, Hai said: “Today (March 22, 2013) will be A MASSACRE“, or ANOTHER “massacre”. THIS IS HORRIFYING. WE’VE HAD ENOUGH “massacres” to last A LIFETIME.
Finally, “Anti-Brotherhood protester Hussein el-Sayyid said he saw three people with THEIR FACES SLASHED, suggesting some BLADES or KNIVES were being used in the fighting“. “We are Egyptians EATING ONE ANOTHER when we should be ONE HAND“, but of course, in POLITICS, as we know this is RARELY IF EVER the case.
Egypt has taken another step towards COMPLETE AND UTTER COLLAPSE which, of course, is VERY FRIGHTENING
