Terrible Images Are Coming Out Of Egypt's 'Day Of Rage' [PHOTOS]

EgyptREUTERS/Khaled AbdullahSupporters of Egypt’s deposed Islamist President Mohamed Mursi shout slogans during a rally in protest of the recent violence in Egypt, in Sanaa August 16, 2013. Deeply polarised Egypt braced for renewed confrontation on Friday after the Muslim Brotherhood called for a nationwide march of millions to show anger at a ferocious security crackdown on Islamists in which hundreds were killed.

People have flooded the streets across Egypt to protest the bloody crackdown by the Egyptian military on supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi.

“Sooner or later I will die. Better to die for my rights than in my bed. Guns don’t scare us anymore,” Sara Ahmed, 28, a business manager who joined a march of thousands of demonstrators heading downtown from northeast Cairo, told Reuters.

Thursday’s bloodshed, which killed upwards of 600 people, has spurred clashes all over the country as some Pro-Morsi supporters have taken up weapons against an army determined to silence them by force.

“The generals in Cairo have made cold calculations,” Jeffrey Goldberg writes in Bloomberg.” One of them is that brutality pays dividends. … they have come to think that wiping out the Brotherhood is worth the risk [of losing $US1.3 billion in U.S. aid].”

Most people protesting the July 3 coup have remained nonviolent. But insurgency-style events such as the killing of police officers and the bombing of railroad lines have occurred.

All in all, it appears that no one feels safe as the turmoil continues: at least 50 people have been killed so far on Friday and all indications are that more are dying as day turns into night.

“The nation is on the edge of an abyss,” Islamist columnist and author Fahmy Howeidy wrote in Thursday’s edition of the independent al-Shorouk daily.
