The Muslim Brotherhood has called for continued protests Monday as authorities remain determined to derail their plans.

But a spate of fresh violence is compounding Egypt's turmoil, including the deaths of 36 Muslim Brotherhood prisoners and an attack that left 25 Egyptian soldiers dead.

    Then there is the 'corner s established in Iraqtone' of our foreign policy. Watching out for Israeli interests.And our access thru the egyptian military to the Suez Canal.
    Mubarak would be freed now and Egypt would follow the paradigm established in Iraq, Libya & Syria.

    Not to mention the mega dollars we GIVE to Al Queada via the SYRIAN rebels! The US is fooling no one with half a brain that they are fighting a war on terrorists! They are "funding" the supposed terrorists just so when things go terribly wrong they have their "fallguys" in place!

    Aren't we all God's children regardless of race, creed or nationality? Is the strength of nationalism and political retoric more powerful than love, empathy and apathy? Are we not judged in this world and the next by our ability to believe in a power that is so much greater than our own to perfection? Is one man's blood more precious than anothers? I think not... Greed and love of power by the powerless comes from only one source. Whether its their population or our own, the result is always the same... bias, poverty, human suffering, violence and death. We all have our demons; some are just more visible than others. And, everyone is suseptible to their illnesses.

    Bless Yourselves,
