For some, the Rabaa sign is a symbol of steadfastness, while for others, it’s tantamount to the devil’s sign. It might be a source of happiness for those who flash it and a source of tension and worry for the unfortunate ones who happen to be driving their cars near protests of those in support of it.
The sign terrifies many people, considering that many cars were destroyed and many people were verbally or physically assaulted during these protests.
“Flash the Rabaa sign to pass by and get it over with,” is a valuable piece of advice for those who want to peacefully keep going his way.
Meanwhile, one student was honored because he innovated a way to rival the Rabaa sign – coming up with a three-fingered gesture to commemorate July 3rd – the date of Mohammad Mursi’s ouster.
No hand signals
The truth is, the international community is wondering how can millions of people who think they are the biggest crowd in history get so tense because of few hand signals!Bassem Youssef
