200,000 in New Egypt Protests Against Morsi

 The protests in Egypt appear to be growing with now 200,000 marching against Islamic Brotherhood dictator-lite Mohammed Morsi.

“The people want to bring down the regime!” and “erhal, erhal” — Arabic for “leave, leave” — rang out across the plaza, this time directed at Egypt’s first freely elected president. 

What is even more troubling is the violence:

 Clashes broke out in several cities, with Morsi’s opponents attacking Brotherhood offices, setting fire to at least one. Protesters and Brotherhood members pelted each other with stones and firebombs in the Nile Delta city of Mahalla el-Kobra, leaving at least 100 people injured.

“Power has exposed the Brotherhood. We discovered their true face,” said Laila Salah, a housewife at the Tahrir protest who said she voted for Morsi in last summer’s presidential election. After Mubarak, she said, Egyptians would no longer accept being ruled by an autocrat.
 Perhaps people in the West should have paid attention to the MB's slogan: Islam is the Solution.
