Egyptian activists have gathered in Cairo for a mass protest against the ruling military and its handling of a series of clashes between security forces and demonstrators that killed 17 people and drew international criticism, even as thousands of others demonstrated their support for the army.

Tens of thousands protested in the capital's Tahrir Square, the focal point of protests against the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF) after Friday prayers.

Students called for Egyptians to join Friday's protest with a march from Ain Shams University to Tahrir Square. Two students were among those killed in the latest clashes.

Can anyone out there give me an HONEST answer? Where is Egypt headed? To an honorable democracy that welcomes Christians and Jews? To a Moslems only theocracy? To an anti-Israel platform for terror? I fear an Egyptian society that will be centered on religious suppression, anti-American and anti-Israel radicals. Is that what we can expect?

Egypt went from a us controlled dictatorship, then the us created a military coup ( military dictatorship ) presently the us is trying to buy back the weapons it sold to Libya- It doesn't want the Libyan revolution to spread into neighboring country's.

I would recommend reading the entire article. The bits of info provided by the OP are biased and do not outline the article in full.
