"In a state of shocked amazement, people are asking the attorney general to react to the ruling of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to have the escaped fugitives returned. The population's question is clear: 'The Americans have fled How do we get them back again? It is a question that came up in many mosques yesterday.'

There are many questions on the Egyptian street concerning the escape of the Americans accused in the foreign funding affair. In a state of shocked amazement, people are asking the attorney general to react to the ruling of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to have the escaped fugitives returned. The population's question is clear: The Americans have fled How do we get them back again? It is a question that came up in many mosques yesterday.

 

Suez leader of popular resistance in Suez, Sheykh Hafez Salameh, confirmed that ten days ago, Egypt was stabbed in its chest when Egyptian officials allowed the Americans involved in the foreign funding affair to leave the country. He said, "That stab cannot pass without submitting those involved in the affair to justice. I refer to those who took part in this decision during the visits of the U.S. secretary of state, the U.S. ambassador and their colleagues, who came to exert pressure to have the traitors released.

 

After his Friday sermon at the Al-Nour Mosque in Abbassiyah, Sheykh Salameh also said, "I was surprised by the attorney general's decision to somehow bring the people involved in the issue of foreign funding back to into the country. Mr. prosecutor, now that you let them go, how will you bring them back? Mr. prosecutor, America still controls the Egyptian legal system.

 

Dozens of people protested yesterday in front of the U.S. Embassy and participated in the "Friday of Dignity" called for by [member of parliament, National Party Founder, media executive and former presidential candidate] Tufic Accasheh, calling for the immediate expulsion of the U.S. ambassador and a reduction in the size of the U.S. diplomatic mission.

Another protest emerged from Tahrir Square and headed toward the U.S. Embassy to condemn the escape of the defendants on the issue of foreign funding and demand the expulsion of U.S. Ambassador Anne Paterson. These protesters ended up scuffling with the suppporters of Tufic Accasheh, who had gathered in front of the U.S. Embassy. The protesters from Tahrir Square shouted, The People want the Ambassador Sent Back. No, No to U.S. aid. Oh America, you will not humiliate us!

 

The clashes among protesters began with shouting matches between the two sides, when it seemed as though the mosque protesters of Tufic Accasheh thought the protesters from Tahrir Square were demonstrating against the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. So they began shouting The police, people and Army are one hand. The Army and people are one hand. Organizers from both sides then worked to separate the protesters and disengage.
