Let’s check in again on the Arab Spring that has liberals so enthused:
Egypt’s ruling party is paying gangs of thugs to sexually assault women protesting in Cairo’s Tahrir Square against President Mohamed Morsi, activists said.
They also said the Muslim Brotherhood is paying gangs to beat up men who are taking part in the latest round of protests, which followed a decree by President Morsi to give himself sweeping new powers.
It comes as the Muslim Brotherhood co-ordinated a demonstration [Saturday] in support of President Mohamed Morsi, who is rushing through a constitution to try to defuse opposition fury over his newly expanded powers.
As noted earlier, this constitution is a sharia-affirming recipe for tyranny.
Magda Adly, the director of the Nadeem Centre for Human Rights, observes that “the Muslim Brotherhood have the same political approaches as Mubarak” when it comes to roughing up and/or sexually assaulting protestors.
The difference between Morsi and Mubarak? Morsi is an Islamist with obvious terrorist sympathies, clearly hostile to the USA and Israel. Mubarak was a loyal US ally who at least helped keep the region stable. That is why Mubarak got Obama’s knife in his back, whereas Morsi has received his support.
