Egypt on Fire: Jihadist Muslim Brotherhood Fans the Flames of Riots and Strikes

An economic and political crisis is building in Egypt. MSNBC reports that the banned group Muslim Brotherhood is taking full advantage to literally set fire to the streets. The Brotherhood is a jihadist organization that declares "Jihad is our way".

The Boston Globe reports that: "Egypt rushed yesterday to grant bonuses to workers after two days of deadly riots over high food prices and low wages racked this northern industrial city, fueling government fears that economic angst might boil over across the country. ....
Protesters tore down a billboard of President Hosni Mubarak and fought with police in clashes that left one person dead in the worst unrest since Egypt's 1977 riots over increased bread prices."
