As thousands of protesters and Central Security Forces (CSF) locked horns – trading stones and teargas cannisters – for a third consecutive day near Cairo's Tahrir Square, a young boy clad only in green boxer shorts emerges from Egypt's Nile River to pelt soldiers with stones before disappearing back into the river.

and then?
seriously, while the temporary violence keeps getting overestimated (indeed, 100 deads in protests and riots is no joke, but still after an almost bloodless revolution and with decades old problems, AND a hostile foreign intervention, that's to be expected, and it's sporadic, and relatively contained violence) the big issues of egypt (social problems, corruption, poverty) are actually for the most part mubarak era negative heritage. The problem is however that I see less and less an opposition to morsi, with secularists divided between passive and self destructive policies and islamists with no big alternative to morsi, the protest is pitched at morsi, and an army coup would bring back the status quo of mubarak era, plus extra violence. So in the end fjp (and nour) seems the only force capable/likely to stay, however the protests are apparently addressed at them. Violence is still small but growing, hopefully it stops, I don't think an egyptian civil war is likely in any way but cer

burning armed forces vehicles on Israel's behalf
Those attacking the armed forces are working for Israel. It is more than shameful that the opposition is silent.

Don't make me laugh!
Typical uneducated reply! Can't you see we have problems in Egypt? Why must people always blame outsiders for our problems? With this view, we will never improve as a country. Time to face up to the fact we have issues and and problems and we have to fix them.

DISGUSTING SOCIAL VIOLENCE IN EGYPT
You are glorifying incessant social violence in Egypt. Current government was elected and is trying to fix things to the best of their ability. Opposition has no solution to problem. It is this constant screaming; cursing; destruction; fires; gang rapes & fights that have ruined Egypt's economy NOT MORSI's government. Nothing will please these groups until they have ruined Egypt so badly that the starving remnants will have to quit in exhaustian and guilt.

The real social violence is...
Sorry, do you know what social violence is??? That there are 2 Million street children in Cairo and that nobody is even interested in this fact. What do you expect from those 2 million living 'timebombs"? To say 'Thank you' to somebody? To ruin Egypt? They just want something to eat every day and a FUTURE! Nobody is interesting in the reasons behind, just in the symptoms of the sickness...

Mofsideen fi Al-Erd {wet edition}
This is a failed generation. Glorifying hitting a fellow citizen with stones, as an act of heroes, is what got us to this stage. In developed nations, it is major crime to hit a law enforcement. Police officers are licensed to fire at attacker{s}. We have mixed freedom of expression with thuggery. Allah Akber.

He was a child
He looked to be about 9 yrs of age, he was far from the soldiers, of course he did not injure them, and I am sure they had a sense of humour unlike many commenters here! In fact, I believe it was only a joke :)

Boys will be boys!
Well keeping to the official rhetoric 'we must condemn all forms of violence'. However, perhaps in this case, we can say, 'Boys will be boys'
