Supporters and opponents of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi have staged rival rallies across the country but there has been violence in the north.

Tension has risen ahead of a mass protest planned by the opposition for Sunday.

Thousands of Morsi supporters rallied outside the main mosque in Cairo's Nasr district.

At least one person was killed in Alexandria as protestors stormed a local Muslim Brotherhood office.

Dozens more were injured when anti-Morsi protestors and Islamists clashed in the northern city, the second biggest in Egypt.

The office of the Muslim Brotherhood, which backs Mr. Morsi, was set ablaze and birdshot was fired.

The authorities are reported to have called in riot police and army helicopters to try to quell the violence.

A Muslim Brotherhood-funded TV channel said petrol bombs were thrown in another northern area, Sharqia.

At least five people are now reported to have died in northern Egypt in violence linked to the political situation in the past few days......

To think, at one point, my wife and I were planning to travel to Egypt. We are fans of Egyptian history.

Wonder how many other people around the world had similar plans.

Not any more. Egypt's loss. Not that they would care.

“The opposition forces of Christians and secularists are gearing up for nationwide anti-Morsi protests on Sunday, but the Islamists are determined to support Morsi at all costs.”

The Copts and other Christians are NOT attending any of the socalled “protests”. For this medium to use their name along with secularists, or any other group for that matter is disgusting, particularly in light of the fact they NEVER report when these same Christians are being persecuted!

If the body count after this weekend is up around 200-300, I’d say that the civil war has arrived.

Just watched a show on Military Channel from couple years back talking about using IR satellite images to find new areas to excavate in Egypt. What such is doing on the “Military Channel” would be a separate screed, but the interesting point to me was a calculation that we’ve only found 1% of the sites remaining there to date. I don’t know whether they were correct on that, but if they were my conclusion is we should actively block all such research until such time Egypt is run by civilized human beings who respect the past, not barbarians who think the 7th was the only important century in history. Don’t show the barbarians where to destroy more of OUR history and it will still be there for future civilizations to discover once the barbarians have imploded.

Exactly. Because it has been proven that they will not respect anything that is not Islam. Their god would tell them them to destroy it all.
