Egypt: 79 Die in Violent Soccer Riot, Egyptian Member of Parliament Already Blaming America and Israel

Don’t be surprised if the Muslim Brotherhood is inspired by MP Mustafa Bakri and soon echoes similar sentiments. If they think about it too long, they’ll convince themselves that this would have never happened if Jews didn’t exist …

By Mohamed Fadel Fahmy and Ian Lee – “Cairo (For CNN) — Egyptians began three days of mourning Thursday for the 79 people who perished at a violent soccer riot, as the nation’s fledgling parliament erupted in anger over the national tragedy.

The speaker of the parliament ordered an end to a live broadcast of Thursday’s parliament session, so heated was the debate. But the order was retracted after angry lawmakers made their objections known.

A deputy of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party demanded the resignation of the interior minister, holding him responsible for the loss of lives. Another deputy accused security guards of allowing fans to bring weapons into the stadium in Port Said.

A committee will investigate the circumstances that caused the deadly riot Wednesday at the match pitting Cairo’s Al-Ahly team against Al-Masry of Port Said.

It remained unclear whether the riots were ignited by intense sporting rivalry or political strife. Egyptians just marked the one-year anniversary of their revolution that toppled the longtime dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak.

In Cairo’s Tahrir Square, somber protesters, many dressed in popular Al-Ahly club attire, decried Egypt’s Supreme Council of the Armed Forces even though Field Marshall Mohamed Tantawi had tried to allay their fears.

‘This period, I assure you, will be peaceful. Egypt will be stable again,’ Tantawi said in a statement released to Egyptian media. ‘The military council is executing a road map to transfer the authority to an elected civilian entity. … Whoever has any plot against Egypt will not succeed.'” Read more.
