They tried to show there support -- The ability there's almost a mother would just fine this is freedom of expression and to have this write about who -- staging his sit in. For weeks and -- levels that have been shall insight on tonight's. And incitement. To hatred.

And many political forces in Egypt including -- -- The right to tell them that this way is going to and divide that this. Wonderful dumbest thing is to reconsider the way. You are conducting Egyptian office we need and -- -- for government. -- Specialized and efficient ministers.

That was something that was adamant that block they couldn't understand what happens to you you -- on president Obama's displeasure. With what happened here you heard reports that -- -- reconsidering a the military aid Egypt what this is not. Making. An impression sit on the Egyptian. What if you don't want to -- -- We're not going to force but that would suggest. That this might go public relationship between the US and Egypt is so important that this and that I believe -- both sites that. Some decisions like that made in haste and order to satisfy assistant obviously a little bit. This is the only way to -- we have a major -- and the relationship between. The US as the initial followed in the woods as he and Egypt as the major -- in the out of -- And in this custody -- -- us. I am. In favor at all. The assessment.

And therefore the security forces have to work. -- had to save the security situation you couldn't live we've -- We're. Six and four weeks and weeks and weeks of repeated themselves got that -- people bringing them like that and I'm saying Pavel. And the place where they I don't I don't in the old neighborhood. So the street closest to the deadly -- old action. Violent action I don't think violence would have. -- just one final question I want to go back to Syria if we could because we were talking a little bit before when the camera was off.
