Supporters of Defense Minister Abdel Fattah El-Sisi protested outside the embassy of Qatar in Cairo on Friday afternoon, demanding the expulsion of the Qatari ambassador from Egypt.

The protesters also demanded that the Egyptian government cut diplomatic ties with Qatar for its interference in Egyptian domestic affairs and support of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Kamel Gemeelak (Complete Your Favour) -- a campaign urging El-Sisi to run for president -- organized the protest, which was authorized by the Ministry of Interior in accordance with Egypt's newly enacted protest law, which requires all protests to be approved by security forces.

Protesters burnt the Qatari flag as well as pictures of the Qatari ruling family during the protest.

A similar protest was organized by pro-Sisi demonstrators last Friday in front of the Qatari embassy, demanding that the Qatari ambassador be expelled from Egypt.

Qatar had been a firm backer of the Muslim Brotherhood and lent or gave Egypt $7.5 billion during the year ousted president Mohamed Morsi was in power.

Qatar needs to be isolated for its roll as a terrorists nest.
The brotherhood should have no safe haven. No breathing room till it's wings are clept and it's members decimated.

Not so intersting
The law require you to take permission. They did so they aren't going against the law. MB people they don't get arrested because they are protesting, they get arrested because they aren't following the law.

With that illiterate "English"......
Not hard to figure you being an MB member. Now let me clue you why the police and the media was not involved. The protestors not being brotherhood terrorists it had no violence, no vandalism, no tram burning, no stone throwing! You know all the the disposable acts that the MB claims are peaceful.
