1. the laziness of the arabs is confusing them...
brad ,   israel   (02.01.13)
They voted this guy in not too long ago and now they want him to leave. They are realizing that just electing someone wont make their financial issues go away they have to actually work! Instead of working they riot.
2. Riots
YetiHunter ,   Canada   (02.01.13)
Cue the military coup in 3...2...1...
3. Morsilly
Gabe ,   Canada   (02.01.13)
Israeli plans were easy to detect in the pockets of protesters. Just look at their faces. They all look Mossad agents to me.
4. Why has the Egyptian people to suffer so much? Hating Israel
Jouko ,   Finland   (02.01.13)
might be the real reason?
5. Maybe the Egyptians will party as much as their
Jerome ,   Basalt,Colorado   (02.01.13)
Brothers in syria! As long as the Islamic fanatics are keeping busy they seem to be happy and busy enough to leave Israel alone. Now if the good people in Iran would get busy and get rid of the control freak crazies that are in power there.

Barry ,   Tokyo   (02.01.13)
Jouko, the Egyptians suffer due to their ignorance and lack of a proper, honest education. 40% of the population are tecnical illiterates which would classify them as a nation of perkeles!
7. They hate Israel .... yet Israel is what they want to be
Arnold ,   Canada   (02.01.13)
because of the economy , the freedom, and the pride.
8. Egyptian protests
Syd Chaden ,   Palermo Calif USA   (02.01.13)
It's time for Obama to redo his White House invitation list. But, who will he support to advance the Islamic version of Freedom and Democracy, the Shariah, now? Perhaps the Ayatollah might be interested.
9. Morsi will become the next Mubarak !
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (02.01.13)
10. Failed State
SteveR ,   Dallas USA   (02.01.13)
Egypt cannot even feed itself any longer and they will soon find that Islam cannot make the crops grow faster or the trains run on time or air pollution to be cleaned or housing to be built. For those things you need the 21st century but Islam offers only the 7th century. And the 7th century does not offer anything. Egypt will soon be a failed state utterly.
11. The "Israeli Plans" are a menu from a Haifa falafel vendor.
Beni B ,   Baltimore   (02.01.13)
It was a price list for falafel platters :) -- Hey guys: I saw this coming and its good. Lets them fight each other like in Syria.
12. Welcome to the new Egypt
Ronaldo ,   UK, London   (02.01.13)
I think Morsi will soon resign, together with the holocoust denier, whatever his name was, I can see a military estate taking over with strict curfews, and concentration camps being built......., soon they will realise how good they had it under Mubarak..........Welcome to the new Egypt
13. Morsi is Obama's darling: don't complain
Tom W ,   USA   (02.01.13)
Obama showers the M.B. with money, 200 Abrams tank and 20 F16 fighters to boot. His love and support of the "Caliphate" knows no bound: this is the face of the New America. Jstreet, Soros and the Obama Court Jews have wonderful party time: Morsi is their "Dear Leader"-s friend.
14. @6
it is not 40% it is 62%.
15. 13
you are right. just as john kerry said about bashar assad, and i quote, "he is a very reasonalbe and moderate leader that one can work with". this administration under obama is islam's lover supreme.
16. Morsi, Zionist Clown will be overthrown.
Tayfun_Turkey ,   Istanbul   (02.02.13)
New commers will not be secular but islamic of the kind which will confront Israel. Thanks for fusing arab spring, I said that chaos controllable in mathematical models in positive sciences does not work for social. Like 1789 revolutions may trigger others which are beyond control of CIA and MOSSAd. So you lost as soon as you light up a match near the fuse.
17. glorifying misery
David Clarke ,   Liverpool, England   (02.02.13)
Those glorifying the instability and misery of countries like Egypt and Syria are despicable, these people are struggling and fighting for their freedom, they should be admired for it Arabs or no Arabs, it says a lot more about the nasty backwards anti Arab attitudes amongst
18. Pride in Israel
Rhonda ,   Chicago, USA   (02.02.13)
I look at the pictures and see a total collapse of the society. I don't know if it will get better for the Egyptians- they don't have foundational knowledge in principles of democracy and they don't have much time to turn it all around. It makes me proud of Israel- she's had a long, hard struggle but for the past 64+ years the people were willing to work hard, do the ridiculously impossible. Some were educated, some weren't, but they valued study and learning. I'd like to think that Jews like me throughout the world did what we could in some small way to lend a hand in building the social supports like hospitals and forests. The Israelis did the hard stuff and her sons and daughters defended the country. Watching what's been going on in these countries all I can say is my love for the State of Israel and the people of Israel. Both times I've been to Israel and spent time informally chatting with people in cafes, etc what I felt was so powerful, such a sense of bonding. I can hardly wait for when I can return. I love Israeli humor, your mannerisms, the whole kit & kaboodle.
