Egypt’s President Mohamed Mursi Leaves Palace as Police Battle Angry Protesters


Oh that Obama Arab Spring … 

Egypt’s  President Mohamed Mursi appears to have overplayed his hand. The Muslim Brotherhood newly elected president has played a dangerous game of power grab among the protests of thousands of protesters. Mursi was forced to leave the palace as all chaos broke loose. Sadly, Barack Obama has done and said nothing regarding the dictatorial seizure of power on the part of Mursi. But as we were told, the Muslim Brotherhood is moderate.

Egyptian police battled thousands of protesters outside President Mohamed Mursi’s palace in Cairo on Tuesday, prompting the Islamist leader to leave the building, presidency sources said.

Officers fired teargas at up to 10,000 demonstrators angered by Mursi’s drive to hold a referendum on a new constitution on December 15. Some broke through police lines around his palace and protested next to the perimeter wall.

The crowds had gathered nearby in what organizers had dubbed “last warning” protests against Mursi, who infuriated opponents with a November 22 decree that expanded his powers. “The people want the downfall of the regime,” the demonstrators chanted.

UPDATE I: It would appear that the protesters are none to happy with President Barack Obama either. One protester had a sign that is going to leave a mark. Hey Barack, how come you are not touting the Arab Spring still? How’s that Muslim Brotherhood working out for you Obama? Or is this what you had in mind all along?

      The guy holding the sign is exactly right. This would not have happened without Obama’s help.

      Obama is an undeclared muslim and he will do whatever he can to help spread the muslim cult over the world.
