Egypt's Revolution Proceeds to the Bloodletting Phase

Muslim Brotherhood supporters confronted the military, and the military confronted back-- killing 40 of the Muslim Brotherhood protesters and wounding another 300.


The Al Nour party, which was the only Islamist/Salafist party to support the removal of Mursi -- the Nourists wanted a more hardline Islamist government -- has now withdrawn its support from the wide reform block.

AllahPundit worries about the Nourists.

But he does see a bright spot:

A Brotherhood spokesman said of Nour, “They are being used to beautify or whitewash this military coup. They are making enemies on both sides.” Two big X factors here, then. One: How many Islamist voters will Nour inherit from the Brotherhood due to public disgust with Morsi? A “pragmatic” Islamist will migrate to Nour simply because they’re the only game in town if you want some leverage inside government. Others, like these lunatics, will stick with the MB and bitterly resent Nour for having sold out The Cause in the name of gaining power. That’s not a terrible result, actually — having Islamists at each others’ throats is better than having them at anyone else’s.

Indeed, and let's not forget, a lot of the people who demonstrated to bring down the Muslim Brotherhood objected to the imposition of strict sharia law on the country.

And for those of the mind "let the fight each other until they're as sick of bloodshed as the rest of us," there's always the prospect of a full-on civil war.
