Still we await the mea culpas and apologies from the enemedia and clueless politicians when I warned that it was all about the Muslim Brotherhood back in January 2011. They said it wasn't about the Muslim Brotherhood, I said it was. They said it was all about democracy, I said it was all about Islamic supremacism and the absolute rule of sharia.
I predict that these protesters will meet an ugly end. I also predict that Obama will stand by when freedom lovers are crushed.
Remember "CNN journalist" and attacker of Pamela Hall and our anti-jihad ads Mona Eltahawy?
"Anti-Morsi protesters torch Muslim Brotherhood offices" France 24
Protesters torched Muslim Brotherhood offices on Friday, state media said, as supporters and opponents of President Mohamed Morsi staged rival rallies across Egypt a day after he assumed sweeping powers.
The offices of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the Muslim Brotherhood's political arm, were set ablaze in the canal cities of Ismailiya and Port Said, state television said.
An FJP official told AFP the party's office was also stormed in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, where clashes broke out between rival demonstrators.
In Cairo, an array of liberal and secular groups, including activists at the forefront of the protest movement that forced veteran strongman Hosni Mubarak from power early last year, planned to march on Tahrir Square, Cairo's iconic protest hub, to demonstrate against the "new pharaoh".
Morsi's backers led by the powerful Muslim Brotherhood gathered outside the presidential palace in north Cairo in a show of support for his decision to temporarily place his decisions above judicial oversight.
"The people support the president's decisions," the crowd chanted.
Morsi was mulling an address to the nation defending his decision later in the day, aides said.
On Thursday, the president undercut a hostile judiciary that had been considering whether to scrap an Islamist-dominated panel drawing up a new constitution, stripping judges of the right to rule on the case or to challenge his decrees.
The decision effectively places the president above judicial oversight until a new constitution is ratified.
Morsi's opponents poured into Tahrir Square after the main weekly Muslim prayers.
"Morsi is a 'temporary' dictator," read the banner headline in Friday's edition of independent daily Al-Masry Youm.
