Thousands of Islamists gathered near Cairo University today to rally in support of Shariah law and Mohamed Morsi, the Egyptian president who recently granted himself dictatorial powers.

Organized by the Muslim Brotherhood, the rally follows a week of large anti-Morsi demonstrations and the passage of a draft constitution by an Islamist-led assembly.

The U.S. Embassy in Cairo is closed to visitors again today due to “security concerns.”

    These people scare me. Do they know what they want?

      Of course they know what they want. They want all Non-Muslims (and even some Muslims who don’t “believe the proper way”) dead.

    It looks like the Morsi opposition had the upper hand and momentum. Which could not be allowed. Then these jokers were no doubt trucked, bused and cattle carred in from far outside the perimeter.

    Morsi now has a weekend to quash any true non believers and cement himself as another dictator who’s never left the 7th century.

    This was exactly what these people wanted! Well BEFORE Mubarak was thrown out, during the whole Arab Spring bullcrap, it was CLEAR the MB was going to usurp power with intentions to install Islamic law.

    The writing was on the wall people!! This is what you asked for!!

  • yahneverknow

    Waiting for one of their cultural… ahem… leaders… (/facepalm) to refer to Morsi as Allah.
