The good news is that the Brotherhood still isn’t using any of Obama’s tanks on Americans. Yet.

A US citizen was killed in the Egyptian port city of Alexandria on Friday during clashes between supporters and opponents of President Mohamed Morsi, bringing the city’s total death toll on Friday to two.

The American man died from a stab wound to the chest, according to Amin Ezz El-Din, head of Alexandria’s security directorate.

Ezz El-Din said the young American had been taking pictures with his mobile phone near one of the offices of the Muslim Brotherhood, the group from which President Morsi hails, when he was attacked by unknown assailants.

The victim was rushed to a military hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Security sources told Ahram Online’s correspondent that the victim’s name is Victor Andrew. He was a 28-year-old photojournalist.

In May, American academic Chris Stone was stabbed in the neck outside the US embassy in Cairo. Stone, however, survived the attack.

Stone’s attacker, Mahmoud Badr, 30, a commerce graduate, told interrogators that he had travelled to Cairo by train from Upper Egypt’s Kafr El-Sheikh with the specific intention of killing a US national, Al-Ahram’s Arabic-language news website reported.

Come to Egypt for the Arab Spring. Stay for the Islamist stabbing sprees.

    Without tourism they will starve. Let the Muslim Brotherhood see how crazy people get when they have no food.

      There were already reports of cannibalism some months ago in Egypt.

      Obama will feed them………….He is giving USA Taxpayer money to the tune of 2 billion yearly tothe Muslim Brotherhood nations.

      • onecornpone

        Actually WE have been feeding them for a few decades. Egypt has been a major purchaser of U.S. wheat since Anwar Sadat ran the country.

          I wonder if the new Ikwan(MuzzBro)police chief who directed the Luxor tourist massacre five years ago will keep his job?(he had 40 Swiss tourists disemboweled and left to die)

  • garyfouse

    Has the State Department issued a travel advisory for Egypt? If not, why not?

    • jmflannagan

      Yes they have.!

    • Linda Buvens-Butts

      Obama will not hear of it.

  • Arf

    Victor Andrew was a photo journalist? There are plenty of Egyptians who can take pictures of other Egyptians. This guy sounds like a Daniel Pearl who wanted to show the world the “human” side of terrorists while making a name for himself as a great humanitarian. His killers, like I suspect Victor Andrew’s, had other plans.

    From what I read, he was an ohio student with some leftist NGO in egypt.

    • onecornpone

      Interesting – perhaps we should all chip in? What better way to eliminate a few Ayers, Dohrn, Sunstein, Jones type Leftist before they get traction and wind up as college professors in America? I recommend Free airline tickets to Egypt and the other hotbeds of unrest in the M-E for ALL of them.

        Now that would be rather interesting to watch to say the least. Darwin giving many Awards.

          20-30 years ago, a westerner could stroll around third world backward dumps without fear of anything happening to them. Nowadays, in many places, you may as well have a neon sign over your head saying “please kill me, I’m a westerner. There will be no repercussions.”

          I’ve travelled extensively around the world, including around 20 islamic countries. Most of the countries I’ve been to, I would never set foot in, now. You couldn’t pay me enough to go back there.

          The world is more dangerous now than ANY time since WWII. We have been living through an anomaly since then, an utterly exceptional 65 years for westerners. That is now FINISHED. Get used to it.

          • Drakken

            They do pay me to go to these countries, but we are armed to the teeth.

        The ambassador killed in benghazi was one such leftist who worked for NGOs in north africa when he left college. He ended up sacrificing himself on the altar of his ideals.

        • onecornpone

          I suspected as much since the Dept of State is lousy with them. That is why any level of productive diplomacy gets a case of severe hiccups when the Executive branch is controlled by Republicans.

          Anything constructive attempted is deep-sixed with leaks and clandestine counter-measures from within, a fact that became obvious during John Bolton’s short tenure.

          No wonder they loved Colin Powell. The entire agency should be gutted, but then so should all long-term bureaucrats in all of the various Fed agencies and depts.

          Our government, from the bottom rung up is a hotbed of anti-America activity. I’m thinking we should probably limit government jobs to five years, then out the door to the private sector.

          even in our unjust world, justice occasionally happens, even it is accidental.

            You must mean scumbags have a self destroy instinct!
            Think Napoleon, Hitler…etc…

  • onecornpone

    I wonder how long it will be before the followers of Allah decide that all of Egypt’s ancient antiquities must be destroyed, since they predate Islamism? Remember the cliff-side Buddhist carvings in A-stan that were blown to smithereens by the Taliban? Will the Sphinx survive the religion of pieces?

    • Linda Buvens-Butts

      Islam is a man made religion.

      • Blake hitler

        allah = satan

    • knowshistory

      we can only hope. let islam cut off its nose to spite its face. stupid American tourists love the pyramids and sphinx. even stupid American tourists will not pay to be stabbed to death while NOT seeing the sphinx. even stupid americans are not that stupid. we voted for a muslim mole, who was able to make government in Egypt and Libya even worst than it was (didn’t think it could be done, did you?) but even the stupidest among us will not pay for what islam offers tourists in Egypt.

    • Ming the Merciless

      It was already decided, Morsi promised to destroy the pyramids, the Sphinx and all the old temples…the muslims are basically iconoclasts and have destroyed all the relics of even prophet Mohamed…read up on the siege of the grand Caboose(mosque) in Mecca!

  • Blake hitler

    kill all muslims

  • Blake hitler

    Egypt is a perfect example of how muslims will take over a country. the original inhabitants were Coptic Christians but now muslims have taken over and enforced sharia law. let this be a warning to any country with a growing muslim population (which is every country that has welfare)

    • Ming the Merciless

      Muslim? You mean arab sewer rats! However, I must add they were INVITED IN by the Egyptian Copts who even joined them in the siege of Byzantium and joined and participated in the rapes of Orthodox
      nuns on the altar of the Santa Sophia cathedral!

      • Blake

        im sure they regret that decision.

  • Peter

    Islam, the religion of peace kills again!

  • GaunchoNYC

    Sadly, this poor Jewish kid called Andrew Pochter was quite probably made unaware of danger by his Liberal college and upbringing. Someone must find an antidote to make Leftist Jewish parents gain the awareness that their bleeding heart values can actually make their kids bleed to death. But of course, if someone had warned his parents 2 days ago when their son was still alive that Muslims are violent and dangerous and better kept at a distance, this very same piece of factual information that certainly would have saved their son’s life would have been indignantly dismissed as the rant of a racist bigot.

    • Ming the Merciless

      Darwin awards are sometime called “Abortion” Imagine the extra millions of socialist creeps we’d be plagued with without this self destruct mechanism…remember the hippie filth traveling(and vanishing) in all the free dope countries…today, I bet thousands of Obamamites are “vanishing” in Egypt as we speak…degenerate species have a very active “deathwish” in their gene!

  • Ming the Merciless

    Anyone traveling to Mexico, Syria or Egypt deserve the full Darwin award…THE PEACE OF THE GRAVE…thus cleaning the gene pool…image what a poor Mexican, Syrian or Egyptian is thinking of these idiots!
