More Violence in Egypt

I trust that no one is surprised that the news from Cairo is not encouraging.

Yesterday, a mob attacked and invaded the Israeli embassy. The Israeli ambassador fled the country. Rioters also attacked the Egyptian Interior Ministry.

Thousands of Egyptians were protesting. Fifty buses of riot police were called in to restore order.  The New York Times has the story.

It looks like liberal democracy will have to wait.
