Muslim Brotherhood Cracks Down on Arab Spring Print E-mail

Angry Morsi.jpgIn an ironic twist of fate, the Arab Spring helped the Muslim Brotherhood seize power in Egypt by overthrowing former President Hosni Mubarak. Now, Egypt’s current President, Mohammed Morsi, has decreed dictatorial powers and he will launch a Syrian President Assad-like crackdown on Arab Spring demonstrators in Cairo.

According to Fox News, “an angry Mohammed Morsi refused Thursday to call off a referendum on a disputed constitution that has sparked Egypt’s worst political crisis in two years, drawing chants of ‘topple the regime!’ from protestors who waved their shoes in contempt.”

Morsi’s uncompromising stand occurred last night after thousands of Muslim Brotherhood terrorists battled his opponents outside his palace in Cairo, which left at least six dead and 700 wounded.

As reported by Fox News, “speaking in a nationally televised address, Morsi accused some in the opposition of serving remnants of Hosni Mubarak’s authoritarian regime and vowed he would never tolerate anyone working for the overthrow of his ‘legitimate’ government.”

Afterwards, 30,000 Morsi opponents on the streets of Cairo shouted chants of “the people want to topple the regime.”
