Some people seem to think this is what is necessary to restore democracy in Egypt after a coup replaced a democratically elected Egyptian president. If this is what’s necessary to reinstitute democracy in Egypt then Egypt is doomed. No matter what one may think of the Muslim Brotherhood, if their distaste allows them to accept this level of violence against citizens of a country they suffer from a pathology akin to murder or genocide. This is not how government should change hands and this level of violence should be condemned. Any and all aide should be stopped and economic sanctions began immediately for as long as any Egyptian government condones and enacts this level of violence against its own.
