Fighting on behalf of Islamic supremacists who will end up being far more oppressive in power than anything they’ve imagined in their wildest nightmares. Leftist/Islamic Supremacist Alliance Update: “3 students from US arrested during Cairo protests,” by Charles Wilson for the Associated Press, November 22:
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) “” Relatives and school officials said Tuesday they were working with U.S. officials to free three American college students arrested during protests in Cairo, where an Egyptian official said they were throwing firebombs at security forces.
An Egyptian official said the students were arrested on the roof of a university building near Tahrir Square. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because there was no authorization to speak to the media.
The U.S. Department of State said it was aware of the detentions of three U.S. citizens in connection with Tahrir Square protests and was seeking access.
The wave of protests and violence across Egypt that began Saturday has left 29 dead and thrown the country’s politics into chaos less than a week before landmark parliamentary elections were to begin. Tens of thousands of people filled Tahrir Square on Tuesday to intensify pressure on Egypt’s military leaders to hand over power to a civilian government.
A spokeswoman for the American University in Cairo identified the students as Luke Gates, 21, Derrik Sweeney, 19, and Gregory Porter, 19.
Morgan Roth said the three students had been held by Egyptian authorities since their arrest Monday night but she did not know whether they had been formally charged or what the charges might be. She said it wasn’t unusual for American students to get “caught up” in Egyptian politics.
“There’s a lot of very contagious passion right now,” she said. Students from the U.S. don’t always realize what it’s like to live in a country without free speech or other civil liberties, and sometimes are motivated to work to change those conditions, she said….
And they’re fighting to change them by making them even worse.
