Right now new violence turning deadly in Egypt troops opening fire on supporters of the ousted president.
Mohamed -- were told that it happened as they were marching towards a building where they believed -- was being held.
The shootings coming after the Muslim Brotherhood called for a quote day of rejection.
To protest the military take over this week called this raising concerns that the unrest could escalate these adopt -- is a mideast journalist.
And Fox News contributor and I guess this is what.
What we were afraid of.
That's -- -- we are afraid of what we expected they weren't gonna go down.
And that easily and you have to realize that they do have a large constituency that's how they came to power.
To begin with that's Muslim Brotherhood love -- -- and that's exactly why.
That was what was predicted after the Arab Spring we had that we already -- the fifth day -- some anyways where you have.
And a revolution in Egypt he had a political vacuum and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Well funded well organized the only opposition at that time that had the ability.
And the following to take over.
I thought this was -- yesterday there were reports circulating.
That arrest warrants had been issued for some of the top leaders within the Muslim Brotherhood and then last night.
Late last night.
An army or military spokesperson went on to FaceBook and said no we're not doing that we are not -- planning to arrest anybody.
You have to understand the military -- John here is just so sensitive and the way that they approach.
The crackdown against the Muslim Brotherhood is going to be entirely -- it's going to really paved the path for the for used to come because.
On the want and if they go too soft.
Egypt will be in perpetual revolutionary Mosul come out onto the streets they'll do what they'll do they'll -- continue doing what they're doing because that we'll get away with it.
And -- they go too hard on them.
It's going to be you know a greater vengeance and and and and they're gonna come out with greater violence.
But we've we've we've talked to analysts who have said that you've got to bring -- Muslim Brotherhood into the fold somehow.
You know give them some sort of sense that they're gonna be a part of the process going my and they about how do you do that after you just ousted one of their.
All right there's just too many of them not to include into the equation because this is what you gonna have what we're watching today's going to again.
They're gonna come out they're gonna -- violent than they have in the past the Muslim Brotherhood -- -- brought up two years ago.
They've been around for over fifty years and they know exactly how to get into power and they have the tools to -- -- So we have to think you know that the interim president needs and meet in a statement that -- -- he wants to have something entirely inclusive.
To -- you know what the people coming out of the streets demonstrated something very very important going forward.
But this is it a very diverse patchwork of Egyptian people young old women men.
They're coming out into the streets and that entire year demographic -- to be.
Had represented not just one small constituency.
And the US are tricky situation because obviously we want to support.
Those leaders they're democratically elected but there are probably a lot of people within the Obama administration at the State Department to a pretty -- and more she's.
-- won't right because look he was democratically elected but he wouldn't democratically -- -- -- So we have to make that that distinction here and really the most important thing going forward.
It's for Egypt to find a leader and to find -- support system weather comes from the US men and its allies but mostly from within.
To really resurrect its economy.
Revolutions don't happen because people like having these lofty dreams about democracy they happen because people are hungry they need jobs and the economy in Egypt.
The Muslim brotherhood -- more if he had had had been able to fix the economy to a certain.
Degree I think you'd have seen.
Less of of of of this movement to come out and on to the streets so it's about the economy it's about hunger.
And that's really what's going to be most important.
So moving forward looking for a leader they've got an interim president.
Who's in place until they're able to.
To call elections but you know the leaders there you know the players in Egypt is there somebody that might be acceptable.
To everybody that could come in and -- especially be acceptable to the US.
And that's the challenge dealing thorn but one of the things that I've always suggests and going forward instead of just writing that the checks to -- spoiled child and giving them their allowance.
Maybe that's what we should be putting our money toward.
Finding a viable opposition -- got a government that's going to be.
Answering beat me the -- of the Egyptian people but also being transparent government that the US and allies could work with because that's what it was established to begin with.
Great analysis as always from -- depth Terry who's a mideast journalist and a Fox News Channel.
