Wednesday’s tragic soccer riot in Cairo claimed the lives of at least 73 people in what the NY Times called “the bloodiest outbreak of lawlessness since the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak one year ago.”

Some are blaming Egypt’s military for failing to foster a stable environment and being unable to quell the violence before it became deadly.  Egyptian MP Mustafa Bakri is not one of those people.  At a parliament meeting following the riot, Bakri claimed America and Israel were responsible for the mayhem, in an attempt to “bring the country down”

Watch the speech for yourself.
