Thousands, protesting against the Muslim Brotherhood backed-Morsi government gathered in Cairo, Egypt’s Tahrir Square on Friday to mark the second anniversary of the uprising that eventually led to the overthrow of another autocratic regime, Hosni Mubarak’s, according to Fox News.
The Fox report continues:
Hundreds of thousands are expected to turn out for the rallies planned in Cairo and several major cities. Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups are staying off the streets to avoid clashes.
Friday’s rallies come a day after opposition protesters battled police for hours near Tahrir. The clashes injured scores of opposition protesters
One protester used the occasion to voice his opinion of President Obama, who earlier this week delivered four state-of-the-art F-16 fighter jets to the Morsi government, according to YouTube News.
The sign calls Obama a “jerk” and an “idiot” for backing a regime that is killing its citizens and reads as follows:
‘Obama you jerk, Muslim Brotherhoods are killing the Egyptians, so how come they can guarantee you the security of Israel
Hey Obama your deal with the Muslim Brotherhood is unsuccessful.
Obama you idiot, keep in mind that Egypt is not Muslim brotherhood, and if you don’t believe that, go and see what’s happening in Tahrir Square NOW.
Appearing on FNC’s “Special Report,” syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer observed, that President Obama “doesn’t have a foreign policy. There’s nothing coherent about it.” That fact is beginning to show.
