More than 180 people have been injured and at least five have been reportedly k!lled in street battles across Egypt as thousands protest against President Mohamed Morsi and his party.

Molotov c#cktails, rocks, teargas and gunfire marked the second anniversary of the Egyptian revolution.

At least 186 civilians and 45 security personnel have been wounded since the start of violent clashes in Cairo, Alexandria and Suez according to Egyptian officials, Reuters says.
In the day's first casualties, at least five people have reportedly been k!lled in clashes in the city of Suez, according to Al-Arabiya.

However Egyptian officials denied the reports, claiming that the Egyptian Ambulance Organization stated that no de@ths were confirmed, Al-Ahram newspaper reported.
Street battles continue between security forces and protesters in Tahrir Square, RT’s Bel Trew reported from Cairo.

Teargas was used after protesters tried to breach the barrier surrounding Egypt’s Interior Ministry.

In Cairo groups of people have been engaging in f!ghts, firing birdshot and hurling Molotov c#cktails at each other during the day, Ahram Online reports. There also has been the sound of heavy gunfire.

Some of the thousands protesters marching for Tahrir were reportedly attacked by men throwing rocks and glass near the bureau of the Muslim Brotherhood’s official website Ikhwan Online.

While protesters blame the attacks on Brotherhood men, the Islamist group claims numerous attempts to “raid” their offices, Ahram Online says.

In Alexandria hundreds of demonstrators took part in a march, while the city court building remained the center of protest activity.

Сrowds of protesters approached the governorate headquarters and engaged in violent clashes with the police.

Protesters broke up the pavements and threw rocks. Ahram online reported sounds of gunfire and what appeared to be snipers on the rooftops of nearby buildings. Police have been ordered to deal with protesters “firmly” after a number of attempts to storm the court building were reported, Ahram Online added citing a police source.

Clashes also erupted in Suez, with hundreds of protesters forced back from the government building by the police firing teargas.

The protesters continue to demand the “overthrow of the regime” embodied by chants such as “Escalation, escalation! A revolution all over again!”

Relatives of Egyptian revolutionary icon Khaled Said, the young man brutally beaten to de@th by the police in 2010, also joined Friday’s protests.

“I want justice and order; I want to get rid of the Muslim Brotherhood. I am not happy with anything that happened over the past six months; they were worse than Mubarak’s 30 years,” Said’s sister told Ahram Online.

Voicing Egyptian protesters frustration with the elections, as well as the Muslim Brotherhood-shaped constitution and government, she said they have “disregarded the interest of Egyptians and only went after their own.”

“We are beyond the point of dialogue now, they have separated people through their judgmental discourse,” Said’s sister added.

“Muslim Brotherhood made a dirty deal with the military behind the backs of the majority of the population and they’re going against the interest of a secular state, which the majority of the Egyptian people want,” author and geopolitical analyst William Engdahl told RT.
According to Engdahl, while Muslim Brotherhood is the “best organized force in the country,” they are “so preoccupied with this Sharia agenda, this islamization, creating this state which de facto is emerging to be an Islamic fascist regime” that they neglected the real functioning of economy and let it remain in shambles.

There’s only one party that will decide the future of Egypt, and that’s the people of Egypt, editor of Al-Quds newspaper, Khaled El Shami, told RT.

El Shami believes that Morsi, along with Muslim Brotherhood have no say in what’s happening in Egypt today as they’ve already “disregarded the main goals of revolution: dignity, freedom, social justice.”

We're either too:

lazy
busy
apathetic
ignorant
divided

and so on and so forth to really pull some stuff like they do in other countries. But if the day ever came that Americans united and stood up against some of the bull#### currently happening, then that would be something truly revolutionary and monumental.

But I think the chances of that ever happening are like the chances of this year's Laker team making the playoffs: Little to NONE.
