    I'm Egyptian and I SUPPORT SHAFIK. it's not the end of the revolution, I'm just not prepared to stoop down to allow the brotherhood to use the revolution to achieve their aims. Anything is better than the brotherhood! ANYTHING.

    If I recall..the moslem brotherhood was allied with nazi germany and espouts the "final solution" for jews ...???? How could this possibly be a good thing? Evil egyptian leader Nassar came up with the idea to flood Israels borders with arab refugees and use terrorism rather than fight a normal war.... they got their butts kicked so bad in the 67 war...all these haters lost 5 countries with all the soviet weapons and advisors attacking Israel who was not allowed to buy any weapons and used old junk kicked their ass ..... because G-d is not on the side of evil.... we need a new Saladin the great to rule these countries in peace..... you have vast lands filled with oil.... leave eretz Yisroel alone.... you dont belong there.... Please wealthy Moslem countries... take you brothers back from Israels borders... you have plenty of$$$$ them...we will forgive you for expelling all the jews from your lands in 1950 (untold refugees who fled or were murdered)...1million jews lost everything and were sent to exhile..
