Egypt: Can the Muslim Brotherhood Say “Down with Mubarak”?

I can almost swear this is the first time I hear the Muslim Brothers chanting publicly, “Down with Mubarak!”

Nyahahaha . . . the cowards.  During the evening Palestine protest in Ramses, whenever the Socialists chanted “Down with Mubarak,” followed by young MBs, you can see in the video MB organizers waving “No,” trying to suppress the chants and change them.  Some of their members might have chanted in the morning “Down with Mubarak” (see above), but the group’s main leadership remains timid, cowardly, and compromising till the end vis-à-vis the regime. . . .
