Egyptians living in the United States have called for a protest in front of the White House on Thursday in Washington DC against the Muslim Brotherhood and in support of the Egyptian army. A statement by the protest's planners said the demonstration is planned to "expose Muslim Brotherhood terrorism and its collaborators around the world".

The US has condemned a recent crackdown against the Brotherhood following the dispersal by security forces of two Brotherhood-led protest camps which saw hundreds of supporters of deposed Islamist president Mohamd Morsi killed and thousands injured.

The statement added that the protests will also "expose the clear bias of the Obama administration and the American media in support of the Muslim Brotherhood and its terrorist ideology."

Following the dispersal of the two sit-ins in Egypt's Cairo and Giza governorates, Morsi supporters – some of them armed with automatic weapons – attacked police stations, government buildings and churches countrywide.

The attacks were followed by accusations by the Egyptian government that the Brotherhood was leading a terrorist plot against the state and attempting to terrorize its citizens. The Brotherhood has denied having resorted to any violence, meanwhile insisting on describing the military's intervention to remove Morsi as a result of mass protests against him as a "bloody coup" and has called on the international community to stand against the current interim government in Egypt.

The anti-Brotherhood protest is planned to gather at the White House and then move to The Washington Post offices, CNN, then to the headquarters of Islamic Council on American–Islamic Relations, which the group accused of being the Brotherhood's "embassy" in Washington. The rally's final destination is planned to be the Egyptian military attaché’s office in Washington where they intend to "praise the Egyptian army for its heroic stand against MB terrorism".  

The protest organizers said they will provide buses to carry demonstrators from various Coptic churches in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, South Carolina and North Carolina. They said the demonstrators will include "both Muslims and Copts."

The US Governement Support for the MB has been going on for years.
Even from before 1950's US Government has been supporting the MB. They thought that since they are so stupid and disloyal they would make great leaders in the Arab and the Muslim World that can be under control.

MB - death to democracy
MB, CAIR and other numerous organizations under MB control represent mortal threat to America and shall be eliminated from the earth. March to Washigton is an excellent idea.

Am I allowed to join in their protest?
Although I am in absolute agreement with this protest against the Brotherhood and its tactics, I'm Jewish. Knowing that, will the protestors welcome me to join them? Thanks for letting me know.

That is nice...
That is nice they are going to protest the terrorism of the MB. When the next Islamic fundamentalist group fires rockets into Israel (not that I support the Israeli leeches) will they also protest that act of terrorism? What about the next attack that is claimed by al-Qaeda, will they protest that act of terrorism? I'm willing to bet they do not. My president is an idiot, but go back to Egypt and protest against the MB in Egypt.
