30 dead after Egyptians angry about riot verdicts try to storm prison

Cairo (CNN) — A stern Egyptian court ruling tied to a soccer riot spurred clashes that left at least 30 people dead on Saturday, the latest round of violence in the unsettled North African nation.

In addition to those killed, more than 300 were wounded when people in the northeastern city of Port Said clashed with authorities outside a prison where their kin were being held, the head of Port Said hospitals told state-run Nile TV.

They were angry because 21 of their relatives had just been sentenced to death for their role in a February 1 riot in a Port Said stadium.

That 2012 incident — during a game between Cairo’s prestigious Al-Ahly football club and the host Al-Masry team — ended with 73 dead.

Two months later, Egypt’s general prosecutor charged 75 people with “premeditated murder and attempted murder,” while three Al-Masry officials and nine police officers were charged with “assisting the murderers.”

According to the prosecutor’s office, those in the latter group knew about the assault ahead of time, didn’t confiscate weapons in advance, didn’t stop them and — in the case of an electricity engineer who was charged — turned off the lights directly over the bleachers where the Al-Ahly fans were sitting right after the visiting team wrapped up its 3-1 victory.

Fans from both sides bashed each other with rocks and chairs, yet prosecutors claimed the Port Said supporters were also armed with knives and other weapons.

Many died after falling from bleachers inside the stadium, while others suffocated.

It was unclear whether intense sports rivalries or political strife sparked the riot, though witnesses said tensions had grown throughout the game with Al-Masry fans throwing bottles and rocks at the opposing players.

That violence begat more on Saturday, after some of the defendants’ relatives tried to storm the Port Said prison to free their loved ones being held inside, Interior Ministry spokesman Brig. Gen. Osama Ismail told Nile TV.

The reaction was far different in Cairo, where Saturday’s verdict was issued due to security concerns.

One man cried for joy, feeling that “justice has been survived” following the death of his oldest son, the married father of two children.

“I finally felt that I am in a civilized country,” added a woman in Cairo’s capital. “My son (did) nothing wrong. But my son’s legacy will live on, because of the true justice served here.”

Egypt embroiled in deadly political unrest

Saturday’s Port Said violence comes on the heels of other bloodshed around the nation, which was tied more explicitly to unrest about Egypt’s current leadership but nonetheless symptomatic of instability and insecurity two years after longtime President Hosni Mubarak was ousted.

More recently, protesters have focused their anger at current President Mohamed Morsy.

The former Muslim Brotherhood leader, who became Egypt’s first democratically elected leader last year, has come under fire by some who compared him to Mubarak and said he amassed power for himself and his Islamist allies. He has insisted his moves were necessary to move Egypt forward in the face of pressing issues and persistent obstacles.

On Friday — the anniversary of what some call the January 25 Revolution — six people were killed in Suez and one in Ismailia, amid clashes involving anti-government protesters and those supportive of Morsy, as well as police. Hundreds more were injured in the unrest nationwide.

Opinion: U.S. gets it wrong on Egypt again

Referring to this violence and what happened Saturday in Port Said, Information Minister Salah Abdul Maqsoud read a statement on state TV saying the government was considering implementing a state of emergency in some areas.

“The (National Defense Council) denounces the acts of violence and demands all national and political forces be committed to the peaceful ways to express their opinion,” Maqsoud said after a meeting led by Morsy. “(The council) calls for wider national dialogue, led by (prominent) figures, to discuss the issues of political disagreement and reach national accordance.”

On Saturday in Suez — about 90 miles south of Port Said — the government deployed troops and armored military vehicles in response to the previous day’s clashes.

Brig. Gen. Adel Refat, the head of security in Suez, asked for the help after declaring the area “out of control,” according to state news. Protesters accused Egyptian forces of opening fire during the demonstrations, a claim Refat strongly denied.

Meanwhile, in Cairo, clashes extended to areas around the Shura Council, the upper house of parliament. Protesters overnight waged a standoff outside the Nile TV offices, with some tossing Molotov cocktails and police responding with tear gas.

Will Obama have his own Egyptian Moment?

Obama: The Egyptian People Have ‘Inspired’ America

Quoting Martin Luther King, Jr., Obama remarked that “there something in the soul that cries out for freedom,” and praised Egyptians for inspiring Americans, having “bent the arc of history” and putting “lie to the idea that justice must be gained through violence.“ In reflecting on images of parents carrying their children on their shoulders to show them what ”freedom” looks like, the American president echoed protesters’ chants in Arabic, translated as “we are peaceful.”

Speaking from the Grand Foyer of the White House, Obama‘s remarks did little to reassure America’s allies in the region and avoided speculating what the future of the Egyptian government might look like.


America Inspired

Likewise,  Mr. President you have also Inspired many Americans in the same way.  You haven’t paid much attention to our Rally’s at the National Mall,  nor the Town Hall Meetings all across this Great Land.  In fact,  it seems the Elections of this past November are nothing more than a distant memory for you.  Already you are back at that old game of back door appointments and deals being done while we sleep. Were watching you know.  We aren’t fooled by your smoke&Mirror tricks of pretending to move to the center. We know your a leftist Smuck and nothing is going to change that except Impeachment.  We really can’t afford to wait for 2012, your killing our Country.

We know you now,  Mr. President

We know you’re a Socialist, Progressive, Marxist, Communist  and were not going to let it slide.

Let me read your Fortune Cookie for you:

See, we really do know and none of your tricks are working

We the People will never settle for Socialism in our Country

I am an “American” free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold

America, Our Red Dawn is coming…..


There are some who would say that Communism is dead and that we need not fear them.  Think again America……….

How is it that we missed all the warning signs and ignored those who tried to warn us of what was happening in Our America?

From Paul Revere to President Ronald Reagan there have always been Great Patriots who stood tall to warn us.  Socialism slipped in to our Great Land through the back door and is now firmly planted within our own Government.  On November 2nd we made great strides in taking back our Government from these so-called Socialist/Progressive/Marxist/Communists but there is yet more that needs to be done and we are counting on you!  We need to once again band together and form a front of opposition against this aggression.  We need to be at Town Hall Meetings speaking out and protecting our Citizens from the SEIU and New Black Panther thugs who show up there to intimidate and harass.  We need to be calling our Senators and Congressmen on every issue that is important to America.  We need to urge all of our friends and family to register and Vote at every Election.  We need to be involved in our State and Local Politics in a much bigger way letting our Elected Officials know we are watching their every move and that we will not tolerate Socialism in any of its forms.

We are facing a critical stage in our American History and lest we begin to act now and act swiftly we may find ourselves one day telling our children and grand children what it was once like in America when men were free. I borrowed that last sentence from a Great American President, Ronald Reagan.

We the People are seeing first hand the beginning of the end for America as we know it. We can all feel it and know that something is wrong, that something is happening, and we are not quite sure what. Perhaps we just don’t want to believe it is possible.  The German People didn’t believe it either, and then it was too late.

Please America, wake up to what is happening within our Government.  Get involved and let your voice be heard. Vote while you still can and by all means, Arm Yourselves!  This threat is very real and deep down we all know it. Don’t wait until it is too late. Prepare America for the worst and hope for the best, but by all means, prepare yourselves.

I wrote this post knowing full well the criticism that would come.  It’s ok, I couldn’t not write this post.  I love America too much to not give warning of what we all fear may be happening in our Country.  Ten years ago I would have never thought anything like this could become a reality, and now here we are.  President Obama is disarming our Country and dividing our people.  We are ripe for an Invasion and we are not prepared. This is one of those times in my life when I can only hope and pray that I am wrong. Dead Wrong!  I do hope you took the time to view each of the videos I posted. If you haven’t, please go back and do so. The Fictional Message may be our coming reality.
