Dr. Pipes

There is no doubt in my mind with the turn of events in Egypt and with the recent attacks on Qasr al-Itihadiyya or the presidential palace that Morsi could be forced to resign but would this be the end of hokm el-murshid (read this as the rule of el-ikhwan)? It remains to be seen

However, there is always a funny side to tragedies and in this video a salafi sheikh who issuing a fatwa that anyone who attacks Morsi should be killed (but the real question is how do you kill thousands of Egyptians that are attacking the presidential palace and setting it on fire? Where is Allah when you need him?) and what is most amusing is the ridicule in the comments posted by those Egyptians that watched this video

I'm sure that the army is ready to take over and get rid of Morsi and restore order and put these crazy salafis back to where they belong: Prisons!
