What all the rioting is about.

H/T Magic Martin

The National Salvation Front, which has earlier announced its intention to hold a sit-in, released a press statement listing the sit-in’s demands:

1. Handing over power to a national salvation government, representing the diversity of Egyptians.
2. Annulling the “sectarian and invalid” constitution, and the reformation of a new constituent assembly that shall draft a new constitutional to fulfill the aspirations and goals of the revolution.
3. The immediate calling for early presidential elections.
4. Dissolving the “invalid” Shura Council, and cancelling any laws it had issued.

    In other words the people who don’t want sharia are revolting to try and gain freedom.

    In Cairo the clashes are going on during the night – here in front of the Presidential Palace :

    When Daniel Pipes was out here in Australia, he said that we in the West should help the secular, educated youth “over there”. Did he have this group in mind? But what chance do they really have not to finish up in the torture chambers of the muslim brotherhood?

    PS: My (not rhetorical) question: Is this the light at the end of the tunnel, or the headlight of an oncoming train?

  5. Softly Bob says:

    @Rita,

    I suspect that it is the headlights of the train, unfortunately, but at least it’s good to know that even when about to be engulfed by the mouth that has the snarling teeth of Islam, there are those who still chose to fight back!

    CAIRO :

    The Ministry of Supply and Social Affairs, the old American University in Cairo, and the nearby Hawaiaty School in downtown Cairo caught fire Saturday as violence near Tahrir Square continued escalating.

    Clashes erupted in the violence-prone Mohamed Mahmoud Street, leading to Tahrir Square, on Saturday between protesters and police. The former used Molotov cocktails that set the three buildings alight, Al-Ahram’s Arabic news portal reported.

    Some assailants fired birdshot against civilians who tried to put out the fires, according to the same report.

    Security reinforcements are set to pave the way for fire fighters to step in amid the hostile atmosphere.

    Mohamed Mahmoud Street has seen many clashes for over a year. It was one of main venues of clashes that erupted Friday, on the second anniversary of the 2011 revolution. Clashes re-erupted in the vicinity Saturday.

    CAIRO – Violent clashes erupt on Qasr al-Aini street
    Violent clashes are raging on Qasr al-Aini Street between security forces and protesters in front of the Shura Council.

    Nile TV quoted their correspondent on the street as saying that the protestors are hurling stones against the police, who are responding with large quantities of tear gas.

    Protestors were chanting “Down with the rule of the [Muslim Brotherhood] Supreme Guide“ and “the people want to bring down the regime.”

    The protestors were attempting to stage a sit-in at the Shura Council but were dispersed by tear gas.
