Brutal Egyptian police brutally beat peaceful protesters

Australian journalist and best-selling author Antony Loewenstein reports from the Middle East:

Some good footage from Press TV yesterday that captured the brutality shown by the Egyptian security forces to a peaceful protest for the Gaza Freedom March in central Cairo.

US aid going to good use.

Yes, marvel at the CIA-taught crowd dispersal tactics - the handful-of-hair grab and drag is especially effective, and brutal.

Straight out of the Indymedia playbook. Did you hear that girl screaming for the benefit of the Youtube video she knew would be made?

I'm impressed at how the Arabs were so, un-Arabic about dealing with these protesters. A few nights in an Arab prison would make an excellent topic for Loewenstein's next best-seller (cough). Except we know there's only one country that's really on their awful agenda.

Oh goody. Code Pink is there as well. Of all the issues that feminists could choose in the Middle East, it seems their chosen cause is a society of radical Islamists who would see them all kept at home.

Another typical moonbat protest.

I wonder if the dreadlocked feral hippies ever turn up to one of these gatherings, carrying their drums and whistles, and ask "Uh.. Which protest is this?"

They are such a tragic rent-a-crowd.

Is there anything more satisfying then seeing smug western "peace" activists being beaten? I bet they wished they were doing their little demonstration in London or NYC.

What a pathetic little echo chamber this blog is.

Wow, how low will that rent-a-crowd go?

Holocaust survivor stages hunger strike

An 85-year-old Holocaust survivor is among a group of grandmothers who have begun a hunger strike in Cairo to protest against Egypt's refusal to allow a Gaza solidarity march to proceed.

American activist Hedy Epstein and other grandmothers participating in the Gaza Freedom March began a hunger strike on Monday.

"I've never done this before, I don't know how my body will react, but I'll do whatever it takes," Epstein told AFP, sitting on a chair surrounded by hundreds of protesters outside the United Nations building in Cairo.

There's gotta be some Starvin Marvin kind of angle to this for you grubs to get your jollies, eh? Call Tim Blair.
