CAIRO, Egypt (AP) — Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan joined a protest Wednesday seeking the support of Egypt’s first lady in ending a military trial of members of the country’s largest Islamic organization.
NC Sez: Don’t they mean anti-American traitor Cindy Sheehan? Ron Paul is anti-war people! Sheehan is anti american!
Under the watchful eyes of dozens of black-clad and helmeted anti-riot police, some 50 heavily veiled wives and children of 40 senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood detained for the past year, gathered in front of the headquarters of first lady Suzanne Mubarak’s National Council Women carrying banners calling for their release.
“I am here to protest the trial of civilians in front of a military tribunal as this is a violation to international law,” said Sheehan, who gained fame in the U.S. for her sit-in outside President Bush’s Texas ranch following the death of her son in Iraq.
NC Sez: Is she kidding? Ya know she is either really naive, or she is really a traitor to this country. I am going to choose to believe that she is just plain stupid and one who has absolutey no clue as to what she is participating in! I have to believe this way because this is so infuriating! The minute this government stopped electricuting spys and traitors was the day this country lost control.
“As a mother of a son who was killed in the war, I presented a letter to Ms. Suzanne Mubarak to realize how those women and children are suffering.”
NC Sez: Sheehan can’t even speak properly!
The street protest was rare in Egypt where authorities ban most signs of public dissent.
One woman carried a sleeping infant in her arms along with a poster reading “Father, I miss you.”
NC Sez: Oh, bother! Aren’t these some of the same people who were dancing in the streets passing out candy on the day America children lost their fathers?
In December 2006, the government engaged in a wide-ranging crackdown against the Brotherhood, the country’s largest opposition force — which holds one-fifth of the seats in the parliament — targeting in particular businessmen known to financially support the group.
NC Sez: Where are the kidnappers when you need them? Why aren’t people like Cindy traitor Sheehan ever kidnapped? It’s always the poor schmucks who are in these countries with good motives who really are feeding and ministering to the poor! It’s never idiots like her! Please review the beheading of 20 something Nick Berg!
In February 2007, President Hosni Mubarak ordered 40 of the organization’s members to be tried by a military tribunal on charges of money laundering and terrorism. The court’s verdict is expected Feb. 26.
According to the Brotherhood, 3,245 members of their organization were arrested in 2007.
