I don’t understand why news on arresting this person or that person angers some people in Egypt. Gather everyone in the jails as long as it serves the country’s interest! As long as this achieves stability and safety, who are we to object? Don’t you think so too? (I am just voicing my support of this from the very beginning, so as to avoid problems bigger than me.)
Therefore, it’s “okay” if we arrest someone for flashing four fingers or if we arrest an elementary student because he has a yellow ruler, a reminder of the pro-Muslim Brotherhood Rabaa sign. It’s true that whoever is following up on this news from outside Egypt would be surprised and wonder how a hand signal can worry an entire country and mobilize all their security forces. But whatever, we don’t care about what people think!
Doesn’t the democratic process aim to contain all parties and let whoever agrees voices his opinion and whoever opposes do the same and in the end we adopt the opinion of the majority?Bassem Youssef
