Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, one of the largest of the opposition factions supporting the popular uprising across the nation, has threatened to withdraw its support from the ongoing talks with Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman.
According to spokesman Essam el-Erian, the government’s negotiators continue to refuse to even discuss some of the principle demands of the protesters, including the long-standing number one demand that President Hosni Mubarak step down.
US officials have been touting the “progress” made by the Egyptian government in the talks, and many are expressing shock and a bit of annoyance that the protesters haven’t abandoned Tahrir Square and returned to normal life under the dictatorship, waiting for the government to decide what “reforms” they will be allowed.
This doesn’t appear likely, however, as the protesters continue to take to the streets and there seems to be little indication, despite the administration’s claims, that the negotiations are going to result in some sort of agreement between the two sides.

I say the MB needs to get with the program and jump in with guns blazing, figuratively speaking. Washington is so dumbstruck and clueless as to what to do- and why should Washington do anything anyway, except in the interest of Israel?
Go, MB, and may Allah(swt) give you the strength to help shepherd Egypt through the hard months and years ahead.
The "talks" with thugs of Mubarak have one goal and it is to discredit opposition to tyranny, despotism and autocracy, USA and Israel need Egypt in the hands of those who will humiliate Egyptians for generations hoping that will cement and "legitimize" theft of Palestine. It is not possible to talk with thugs.
Regime's paper has to start building cult of personality of new Master, Tyrant and Torturer in Chief, the CIA's and Mosad's thug in waiting.
