I am proud to be an Egyptian because there are other free Egyptians who do not want to resign to slavery and oppression.

I am with you and Thank you.

The most important part of this quasi-election are the long-term consequences. Tarek Atia brilliantly notes that the election logo that has become “a permanent fixture on [national] channels… may change things. Intentional or not, the flag immediately attracts young children. “What is that?” they ask their parents. The typical response would probably be much like what Kamelia Hamed told her son when he asked, that the flag is part of the election campaign, which is a process by which the public chooses their leader from among several candidates.

In that simple exchange, a revolution of sorts has already occurred.

Hi Kira,

It is true that people are talking but they have been talking since more than 50 years and nobody is listening. This is a litmus test to see whether it is worth it to talk or not. I talked with many Egyptians and they think it is no good, it is only a show to impress the world! Democracy means dividing and sharing responsiblity among all the Egyptians towards our country. I am not quite sure that a dictator could really give up absolute power unless it is a mircale. Have you heard of any in the history of humanity? We have to wait and see. Election day is next week.
