On Wednesday, deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi supporters called for a "Friday of Martyrs." The ouster of Morsi was not received well by Muslim Brotherhood supporters, as ongoing clashes between the Egyptian military and the radical Islamists continue to rock the small country and show no signs of stopping.
Asma Alsharif of uk.Reuters reported yesterday that a pro-Morsi group called "The National Coalition to Support Legitimacy" said in a statement that they "will remain steadfast on the road to defeating the military coup." Elad Benari of Israel National News writes that since Muslim Brotherhood "sit-ins" in Cairo were dispersed by the Egyptian military last week, "almost 900 people, including more than 100 soldiers and police officers, have been killed..."
Adding fuel to the fire is the court ordered release of former President Hosni Mubarak, who "was flown from Cairo’s Tora prison Thursday afternoon aboard a medically equipped helicopter and arrived at the Maadi Military Hospital, where he will remain at his request," as reported by Abigail Hauslohner and Mary Beth Sheridan of the Washington Post today.
Kashmir Life reported today that radical Islamist "leader" Syed Ali Geelani condemned the Egyptian military and called for "special prayers for the those striving for Islamization of Muslim world." He said that the Egyptian Army is acting at "the behest of the West" but still, he said that despite the obstacles, the "process of change has achieved a remarkable pace and now it is not possible to stop the process for Islamization." He said that the "world has reached the threshold of an Islamic revolution."
Last week the Muslim Brotherhood staged a "Day of Rage," where "At least 80 people died in Cairo alone," as reported by Elad Benari of the Israel National News.
