PROTESTS BREAK OUT AGAINST SISI IN TAHRIR SQUARE AND ACROSS EGYPT

SOURCE: MIDDLEEASTEYE.NET
Egyptian activists have held protests against the government of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in the largest demonstrations since the former army general tightened his grip on the country.

Crowds gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the site of the 2011 uprising that toppled longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak, on Friday night and early on Saturday, calling for an end to Sisi's rule.

"The people want to topple the regime," shouted demonstrators in Tahrir Square, according to a video posted on Twitter, echoing the chants of the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings across the Middle East and North Africa.

Footage showing anti-Sisi demonstrations in other cities including Alexandria, Suez, Gharbiya and Mahala, Mansoura and Damietta, continued to surface online into the early hours of Saturday.

But the protesters have faced violence and a wave of arrests, according to a Middle East Eye correspondent in Cairo, who described seeing a group of about 200 protesters heading for Tahrir Square dispersed by riot police late on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yet another Middle Eastern Dictator the US funds handsomely.

Now, my question is, what happens when it appears that Sisi is ready for a political fall?!? Will President Trump send in troops and missiles to keep holding him up?!?

Just because a dictator is brutally befficient, is no guarantee that any country can consistently be stable; just ask the people of Iran what happened, after the deposition of the Shah
