As pro-Mubarak and Christian supporters of the government battle anti-government protesters, America’s Muslim-in-Chief calls for calm. HAH!
I wonder if this is where CNN’s Anderson Cooper got his head beaten in?
The Egyptian Foreign Ministry says calls for an immediate transition from the government of President Hosni Mubarak are inciting violence. “What foreign parties are saying about ‘a period of transition beginning immediately’ in Egypt is rejected,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossam Zaki said, adding that such calls “inflame the internal situation in Egypt.” Tuesday night, President Obama said, “What is clear — and what I indicated tonight to President Mubarak — is my belief that an orderly transition must be meaningful, it must be peaceful, and it must begin now.”
