Egypt's government condemns death fatwas

AP foreign, Thursday February 7 2013

CAIRO (AP) Egypt's prime minister has condemned religious edicts by hardline Muslim clerics calling for the killing of opposition leaders and says the government is considering legal action against them.

The state news agency says Hesham Kandil warned on Thursday that such fatwas could lead to "sedition and disturbance."

A day earlier, Egypt's most prominent opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei, head of the National Salvation Front, criticized the government's silence over the edicts. A security official says ElBaradei's home has been put under observation for his protection.

"moderate" in the face of all the crazy crap they've pulled since they took power?

Meet the new boss, worse than the old boss--who woulda thought that was possible?
