Who exactly is advising Egypt’s rulers these days? Has the opposition succeeded in infiltrating the Brotherhood’s iron fences and managed to plant people among them to advise them in a certain way, increasing popular anger against them to guarantee massive participation in the protests planned for June 30? Is this wise man working to remove the last leaf of legitimacy covering this regime’s behavior? Is he working to expose this regime’s truth in front of those who still doubt the intentions of this group regarding the country?
The ruling party has certainly succeeded in confirming its true identity as an establishment which works to serve its own interests rather than those of the country and its citizens. Higher national interests don’t even matter when they contradict with the group’s interests. As I’ve mentioned previously, they have also proven that they work as per the principle “I don’t see, I don’t hear and I don’t talk.” They insist on defying the popular will for the sake of serving the group’s interest. No voice overpowers the voice of the group’s interests, and we don’t know the limits of those interests. But we are aware now that these limits trespass those of the country’s.
