    They have the right to weep and sob, but why can’t they stop their sons from being involved in such clashes. Is it for Morsi they allow their sons to join Morsi supporters or for a reason we don’t know. I know that they are funded for purposes which are far away from the sake of Islam or For Egypt’s advance. Recent evidences prove that those who support Morsi are extremists and they benefit from this. God save Egypt and its poor simple farmers and workers.
