Kifaya: Aeh Ely Be7sal?!

Moved on! Check TheCairoCalls

Anybody noticed this?
The website of Kifaya now has a "new foundational" manifesto!! The manifesto on its site is dated August 21st 2006! And is emphasizing opposing the US and Israel as its primary goal! Without debating the validity of this goal, what does that has to do with your primary reason, Kifaya?! Did Mubarak resign from office, and I didn't know? Did we have democratic elections? Was the press freed?!
Sophomoric is written all over you, Kifaya. And in case you don't understand this, it means childish. And if you don't, then let me put it this way: Kifaya le3b 3yal!

Moved on!


Kefaya le3b 3eyal indeed.

Well, they lasted a bit fo time... but, as patriotic Egyptians who would stick to tradition, it appears they are faltering.

That's not saying I dislike Kefaya. It's not even their fault! They're Egyptian; it's written in the stars... somewhere.

this isn't a new foundational manifesto, that's the old one but someone bumped up the date to make it pop in the front page for some stupid reason.

the first point in Kefaya's manifesto has always been about US hegemony, it seems you've never read it that's all.

Whether dated or not, it's a stupid manifesto then.

Egyptians need to quit blaming their problems on the US. Scapegoating all of your problems that you can't solve on The Great Satan is just a waste of time and misleading.

I totally agree with you Tomanbay Kifaya should stop worrying about banning ART because of the World Cup and worry about things a little more relevant to Egyptians.

Kefaya is a mess. You can't put a hodgepodge of Islamist, leftists, fanatics, secularists together and excpect to get ANYTING done. Of course they only find agreement among silly trivial things and popular sentiment like, "I hate Isreael and America."

Kefaya should get their head out of their ass and worry about democratizing and liberalizing Egypt.

And why can't an "Egyptian" movement come together. A political party that is concerned only with Egyptian issues. Don't we have enough problems to try and fix? We don't need to stick our nose in every single regional Arab issue and make it our own problem. Last I check we're not Lebanese or Palestinian, we're Egyptian!

Whatever. Nice post man.

I totally agree with you TB. See, that's the problem with us Egyptians, we often start off with a valid cause and drift away from it to join hte cattle. Why? Because we believe that popularity is hte only validation we can get!

Ya khossartek ya Masr!

But seriously now, I guess they're just trying to pull the heartstrings of the general populace with that one. 'Tis a shame though, that they seem to be a bit of an unfocused bunch.
