The military is building a concrete-block wall to close off the Qasr El-Ainy Street entrance to Tahrir Square.

Clashes between the military and protesters have been ongoing for two days, ever since the military police violently evacuated the Cabinet sit-in. The attack left nine dead and over 344 injured. 

This is the second wall to be built following violent clashes in the area. The last wall was also built to block an entrance to Tahrir Square, from Mohamed Mahmoud Street, where the military also attacked and clashed with protesters, killing 40 and injuring over a thousand in November.

wall the heart of Egypt
from midan Ramsis to Qasr el Nil, via Tahrir is the heart of Egypt businesswise.Companies, warehouses,suplies etc... wholesellers.All shops and trades resuply from that area .By walling it all you do, you just bring activity and business to a stand still and..please the traders of a new black market of those who still have goods in store. Maybe the brick and concrete block industry is doing well ?

The solution
The solution is that the courageous Egyptian Army builds huge four walls in the Sinai desert, big enough to contain 80 million Egyptians and put them all there. This way, SCAF and their beloved army can enjoy Cairo, Alexandria, Port Said, etc, etc, without any opposition. However if the people still show any resistance, just gas them! The whole Egyptian army is behaving like the German SS under the command of 20 Hitlers. On the other hand, be careful, watch for Mr NATO and Mr Obama because they are not happy at all. We cannot upset them, because we need bread in Egypt. My hear is bleeding for you, Egypt.

Don't compare!
Sorry, Sir, but please don't compare Hitler with anything what is happening here. You have no idea! I don't like what is happening here too, but let me as a German tell you this! No compare with Hitler, please! If you don't believe this then read a history book, but please a good one with the real facts.
