Now, what 529 have been sentenced to death for financially supporting what was a legal political party that fairly won elections?

    Of course, very few of these people, if any will actually be executed (and the Egyptian military government knows it). Rather, the threat of execution, however remote, will be used to intimidate them, to extort cash from them etc.

    Mornin Cryptic. While they did get to participate.....after the removal of Morsi. They went to town on the Coptics and then even the Egyptian Military. Which not mentioned was the police and their homes and family members.

    Yep you are correct it is all for show.....even USA has it that bit up. The real story is to come today with the trial of the AL-JAZERRA journalists. One is an Australian.


    More than 150 of 545 defendants stood trial on charges of killing a policeman and attacking police. The others were tried in absentia, the Associated Press reported.

    "The trials are part of the raging battle between the military-led government and Muslim Brotherhood," said Fawaz Gerges, professor of international relations at the London School of Economics. "What these trials tell us is that the government has been systematically trying to weaken the Muslim Brotherhood and force them to accept the roadmap set by the military government."

    Monday's ruling comes nearly nine months after the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi was ousted from the presidency . After millions took to the streets to protest against Morsi's presidency last June, Egypt's army chief Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi forced Morsi aside and issued a political program that called for fresh parliamentary and presidential elections, which are expected to be held this year.

    Brotherhood supporters, however, have continued some protests against the military-backed authorities, although the numbers in the streets have dwindled.

    "What the trials say is that the military-led government has failed so far to basically force the Muslim Brothers to accept the status quo," Gerges said. "The trials really reflect the political stalemate that exists in Egypt."

    Monday's verdict can be appealed. H.A. Hellyer, a nonresident fellow at the Brookings Institution, said he doubts the death sentence will be implemented.

    "This is a first stage court," Hellyer said. "There are others for the defendants to appeal to." "But the issuing of the verdict in any case, even if it is almost certain to be overturned, is something to note when understanding what the legal system in Egypt is prepared to engage in when it comes to these types of cases," Hellyer said.....snip~

    Which means they got the verdict wrong. It's a fair trial, or it's not. If it wasn't, the verdict is wrong.

    I think the US needs to get rid of the democracy rhetoric and just come clean and state we are acting in our interests. We only support democracy when it's in our interests and turn a blind eye otherwise. It's was too inconsistent and this incident proves it.

    One piece says just 2 sessions......another says after 9 months. One side is Morsi supporters and MB attorneys the other side the Court. Then the Egyptian Military.

    The MB didn't give the Coptic Christians or women any trials. They didn't even get to be arrested and held. They were just beaten and or killed. Some even burned out of their homes.

    That was wrong too. But none seem to care about it so much.....since the MB said they were standing for Democracy. They weren't.....they were just using it to gain power.

    Well like I said.....I wasn't keen on how they went and or controlled Judicial process. But more importantly.....the verdict wasn't just for killing a single police man. It was a host of charges. There is also the part about stealing weapons.....in a country where the Citizen doesn't have that Right to have one.

    What do you think would happen here in the US if the Citizens attacked a police station and taking it over. Plus clearing out all the weapons.

    I don't think we'd have a 5 minute mass trial in which we convict everyone who happened to be on the street at the time and execute them all, that's for sure.

    Yeah that's for sure.....our attorneys would have been filing paperwork from day one. Getting half of them bonded out. Those caught in the dead act would still make bond as long as they got the money. Our attorneys know how to use real democracy to get around the law. Bend it, break it, and use it against its ownself.


    Good thing the Egyptian Military didn't just pick up everybody off the street. They went after the MB and those that aided them. The same ones they branded terrorists after the MB said they don't accept Morsi being removed from Office. Then continued on to incite Riots and attacks on whoever gets in the Mb's way.

    When you abandon what you stand for in the face of terrorism, the terrorists win.

    That might be true.....but here is the flip side to that coin. Terrorism and terrorists don't care, win lose or draw!
