With my all respect I do not understand why the people will not be allowed to see him passing by !! For God sake most of them are the Muslims he is trying to reach to !! Does this an international security standard concerning the American president !!??
I know that this is what happens when Mubarak passes by but this may give the impression that the Egyptians are not welcoming him. In understand the shops and businesses I swear to God I saw it happening whenever Mubarak or his wife passes by anything but I do not understand the windows and balconies thing !!

Of course the CIA paranoid agents will think that it is some sort of biological weapon !! This is madness.
It seems that a whole capital will be shut down for him because technically he will be visit Cairo and Giza from East to West !!!
