On the 31st of August, three different rallies converged on the White House. The first was an antiwar rally, hurredly called as Obama spoke on delaying his attack on Syria. The second was a pro intervention Syrian protest. The third was a pro-Morsi Egyptian protest condemning the coup. They marched to the Egyptian military attache’s office.
As Obama was speaking, things heated up between protesters supporting and opposing intervention in Syria. Horse cops were used to separate the two sides.
Later, some of the antiwar protesters confronted the pro Morsi protesters. One Egyptian opposing Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood who was part of the antiwar contingent was arrested on an unknown charge.
Shortly therafter, the pro Morsi contingent marched on the offices of the Egyptian military attache.
There is one point that could have been raised today: The number of Syrians killed by the gas attack (1100 claimed) is similar to the number of Egyptians killed by the assaults on protesters in Egypt (900 claimed), yet US policy is sharply different.
