2012-12-06 23:29

Cairo - Egyptian protesters set fire to the Muslim Brotherhood's main headquarters in Cairo on Thursday after storming the large villa, a spokesperson for Islamist movement told AFP.

"Two hundred thugs went to the headquarters. Security tried to prevent them, but some got through the back door, ransacked it and set it on fire. It is still burning now," Brotherhood spokesperson Mahmud Ghozlan said.

      I sense another Libya/Syria. And no prizes for guessing who would want to remove the Morsi(Islamist) regime from power.

    Yep dont defy the people. The same will happen in South Africa if our leader keep ignoring the will of the masses. Religous fanatics of all persausions should not be in government.

    I think this is loud enough to reconsider his plan regardless how good he thinks his plans are. It is unfair for politicians in a democracy to push everything down people's throats regardless of the people's discontent

      This is hitting very close to home.

      It is also interesting that the Islamic Brotherhood assured everyone that they would not launch a politcal party at the start of the unrest in Egypt, then went ahead and did just that! Sure they won the election and now want to rule just like those who were ousted before them! What is it about political power that intoxicates so absolutely??

    This is not about religion or race so it can only be about money and power. Same as in Syria - as they say War is not about who's right but about who's left.

    One can understand the frustration of the protesters. They rose up against Mubarak, The Brotherhood claimed they had no aspirations to governing, then they do stand and win the elections with threat of Sharia law in Egypt and then Morsi declares himself above all Judiciary, a new Pharaoh in the making. They are back to where they started with Mubarak but a an added threat to being taken back to the 14th century.

    Let the stupid egyptians get what they deserve. They were mere puppets. The muslim brotherhood was behind Mubarak's ousting. They are all going to beg "bring Mubarak back"

    War monger people imploding on itself (aka Arab Spring clean). Muslim nations sure are very good at adhering to the label the rest of the world has given them. Let them have their Civil Wars. Maybe they can learn something from this. These nations were really dealt a poor hand when it came to common sense - yep, that's right, if you spoon feed your children hatred and revenge from birth, expect the worst when they grow up. We're learning the same lessons in SA with poor morals and values.
