I was just in Egypt and it’s kind of interesting how both sides basically accuse the other of the absolute worst.
Apparently, the Pro- Morsi group is:
*a bunch of actual terrorists
*paying people to protest for them
*shipping people from the countryside to Cairo and Alexandria to make their numbers seem bigger
*just a puppet organization for Obama and the Jews
*hurting themselves or each other intentionally to make their injuries look worse
*less than 3% of the population
*did I mention that they are actual terrorists?
Meanwhile, the Anti-Morsi group is:
*a blood-thirsty mob
*not real protesters-- the military is actually paying everyone to be there
*violently attacking the other side totally unprovoked
*just a puppet organization for Obama, the Jews, and the Egyptian military elite
*exaggerating their numbers to get global political support
*an organization that hates democracy
Basically, I came away from the trip with friends who protest for each side who have passionately and rationally explained their positions to me. . . but I still don’t pretend to know enough to have an opinion of my own. Clearly, there’s a lot of. . . passion in the streets there. Passion isn’t always accurate information.
