Muslim Brotherhood preacher blames Egyptian problems on the Jews

So much for thinking out of the box:

Sheikh Abu Muhammad, a Muslim Brotherhood religious leader in Egypt, today gave an antisemitic sermon.

They do that every Friday:

Intense clashes at Egypt’s Brotherhood HQ (AHRAM thanks to Vlad)

In Cairo, Alexandria, Mansoura, Mahalla, and Zagazig, Muslim Brotherhood buildings were attacked, in a day of protests against the group.

CAIRO (AP) — Thousands of Egyptian protesters clashed with riot police and backers of the president’s Muslim Brotherhood on Friday, ransacking several offices nationwide as anger over allegations of beatings and power-grabbing boiled over into the largest and most violent demonstrations yet on the doorstep of the powerful group.

 Thousands of policemen, meanwhile, have gone on strike, refusing to confront protesters, and in some provinces, Egyptians have taken to vigilante violence and killings to fight crime. The unrest has badly hurt the economy, with foreign investors and tourists largely staying away, and a diesel crisis that has crippled life for millions.

Upper Egypt protests over conversion to Christianity rumour
From AlAhram Online:  March 20, 2013
Alleged kidnapping and forced conversion to Christianity of Muslim woman provokes protests in Upper Egyptian governorate of Beni Suef.

Around two thousand people have protested in Upper Egypt against the alleged kidnapping and forced conversion to Christianity of a Muslim woman.

Protesters gathered in Al-Wasti in Beni Suef governorate on Tuesday to condemn what they claimed was the kidnapping last month of a 21-year-old woman by Christians. The woman was allegedly forced to marry a Coptic Christian man and sent to live in Turkey.

Security forces were deployed to protect the local church and police station.

The dispute began in February when members of the Salafist Nour Party and Al-Gamaa Al-Salafaya (the Salafist Group) gathered at Al-Wasti police station to protest the alleged kidnapping and forced conversion of the woman.

The woman’s relatives had reportedly found a number of Christian books in her personal library, which led them to suspect involvement by the church in her disappearance.

This is not the first protest against an alleged kidnapping and forced conversion in recent months. In February, clashes erupted in Komombo in Aswan, Upper Egypt after local Muslims accused Christians of kidnapping a middle-aged Muslim woman and forcing her to convert to Christianity.

In May 2011, clashes erupted in Cairo after a rumour spread among ultra-conservative Salafists that a Christian woman, who had allegedly converted to Islam, was being held hostage at a church in Imbaba.

The clashes left at least twelve dead and over 50 injured. Two churches were burnt down.

Al-Wasti is in Beni Suef governorate in Upper Egypt.
