Ikhwan rally in Nasr City (#2)
Immediately after Taraweh prayers (the same time as in Korba), I was surprised to hear a group of people (around 60 or 70) , chanting such slogans as "ehna meen, ehna meen, ehna Ikhwan Moslemen" (who are we?, who are we?, we are Musim Brothers), while holding banners and posters with the pictures of a veiled woman and a man. At first I thought it had to do with what is happening in Alex, but when I got nearer, I discovered that it was about the elections (and Alexandria maybe?...I dunno).
What was peculiar about this rally was it's strange timing, and unexpected venue (it took place in a dark side street in a very peaceful area of Nasr City, Hafez Ibrahim Street, if you're familiar).
I haven't heard about a rally being held at 9 PM in the evening. It was to say the least, creepy. For the first time, I felt nearer and more sympathetic to the 4 police officers who watched the rally from a distance. If anything this rally (and the others) goes to show how the Muslim Brotherhood is intent on making a very clear statement about its power. I wouldn't say that the rally was successful however, as it received a freaked-out-reaction from the residents of the peaceful street.
Now that Ikhwan rallies are all over the place, I guess we should have a spot-the-Ikhwan competition or something. That should be fun!
