Egypt is burning: Sean Hannity on Fox News with Mike Ghouse

Mike’s talking points:

 Sean, I told you a year ago, and repeated again, that the people who dared the might of Mubarak to earn freedom, risked their lives in Tahrir Square will not let another dictatorial regime of Brotherhood snatch it up. They will fight and get their freedom back, and they did.
Obama called in Morsi to announce and hold elections to ensure the support or lack of it, but respectfully honor 40 Million Egyptians demand. The pig headed Morsi did not listen. Had he listened to Obama, this chaos and Mayhem would have been prevented. Obama is also right to ask the interim regime to respect the protestors.
The announcement of emergency rule was necessary to restore law and order; however, killing 149 people for demonstrating against government is wrong, dead wrong. The interim regime is no better than the Morsi or Mubarak regimes. You cannot curtail free speech and demonstration that is the foundation of a healthy democracy.

The looting and shooting must be checked - in the mayhem - Mary Guirguis Church in Sohag, and Suez, as well as properties owned by Copts are being attacked. The Brotherhood is accused of doing this - regardless of who it is, the criminals must be punished. 

The hallmark of civil society is how the minorities, women, children and the weak are treated and protected in a nation, and this applies to every nation.

Right now, the Egyptians Copts are apprehensive and that does not bode well for Egypt. From an Islamic point of view, it is goes against the very grain of Islam - Prophet Muhammad has proclaimed that protection of the properties of others is a basic right and if a Muslim is unjust towards others, on the day of Judgment, He will stand up in support of the victim and against the Muslim. This document is preserved at St. Catherine Monastery in Mt. Sinai. We need to preserve that document before the extremists get to it. 

Brotherhood was an oppressive and extremist organization, but they have a right to exist and right to speech and propagate their extremism, just as we have similar organizations in other nations.  The Military guy Sisi sneaked into the freedom seekers and has hijacked the freedom of the people, and taking it out on the members of the Brotherhood. 
I am proud of the Nobel Prize Laureate ElBaradei who resigned as the interim VP, and said, "It has become difficult for me to continue bearing responsibility for decisions that I do not agree with and whose consequences I fear," ElBaradei wrote. "I cannot bear the responsibility for one drop of blood.''

No one can oppress the other forever, it is bound to collapse. The oppressor lives in fear and his days will always be numbered. We have a full history of it in front of us we can see no oppressor has ever lasted for long. Now if the interim government becomes an oppressor, they need to go, and the freedom fighters will be getting rid of these sickos who are killing people.
There will be more bloodshed – but ultimately freedom will win.
There is a price to pay to earn the freedom; every nation has gone through that exercise including our own US of A, ultimately the Egyptians will get their freedom.

Egypt declares state of emergency
The exceptional measures were taken as "the security and order of the nation face danger due to deliberate sabotage, and attacks on public and private buildings and the loss of life by extremist groups," the presidency said.

Interim president Adly Mansour "has tasked the armed forces, in cooperation with the police, to take all necessary measures to maintain security and order and to protect public and private property and the lives of citizens".

More than 100 killed as Egyptian forces break up sit-in
CAIRO — Nearly 100 people were killed in clashes across the country that erupted Wednesday when Egyptian security forces cleared out thousands of people at sit-ins demanding the return of ousted president Mohammed Morsi.

The Egyptian Health Ministry says 149 people died and hundreds were injured in the clashes, after which Egypt's interim president declared a state of emergency and night-time curfew.

US Condemns Egyptian Govt for Using Violence Against Protesters
The White House has strongly condemned Egypt's interim government for using violence against supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi.

He also repeated calls for the mostly Islamist protesters to "demonstrate peacefully."
Egypt's military-backed interim government launched a deadly crackdown on pro-Morsi protest camps in Cairo earlier in the day, triggering condemnation from leaders of Muslim nations that backed the deposed leader.
The White House opposes Cairo's imposition of one-month state of emergency in response to escalating unrest in the country.
Egypt's Interim Vice President ElBaradei resigns while clashes across Egypt leave more than 100 dead
In a resignation letter sent to Interim President Adly Mansour as the day's death toll from clashes throughout Egypt mounted, ElBaradei cited "decisions I do not agree with" regarding the government's crackdown on the political turmoil which began on July 3 with the ouster of former President Mohammed Morsi, Reuters reports.
"It has become difficult for me to continue bearing responsibility for decisions that I do not agree with and whose consequences I fear," ElBaradei wrote. "I cannot bear the responsibility for one drop of blood.''
