They will kill for you, Jamal Mubarak

"As Egyptian activists have grown more brazen in recent weeks, three members of the nation's parliament have criticized the Interior Ministry for not harshly cracking down on demonstrators calling for widespread political reforms. "Shoot them [activists] and use bullets against those outlaws. We are 80 million Egyptians, and we don't care if we lose a bunch of contraveners like them," said Nashaat Kassas, a lawmaker. His comments, aimed at Interior Minister Habib Adli, came after opposition protests on April 6 and April 13. "If it was my decision, I'd have questioned the minister [Adli] about his leniency towards those demonstrators," said Kassas, a member of the ruling National Democratic Party." (thanks Dina)
