|Gamal In poor areas|
|Nour Vs. Gamal|
|Hello General , welcome to the posters war !!|
Suddenly with no introductions we find posters calling for Omar Soliman as the next President of Egypt !!
We do not know actually who behind it except they were put over Gamal Mubarak’s posters in popular areas in Imbaba and Maadi , in fact some of Gamal’s posters were torn !!
|Over Gamal's posters|
This can’t be ignored because this is the first time publicly Soliman’s name brought up like that.
More interestingly Al Masry Al Youm was the first one to report the incident thanks to their photojournalist who found these posters earlier today , the newspaper published it exclusively on their website and according to some sources it was going to be published in the printed edition tomorrow but after few hours the news was removed from Al Masry’s website which means that most probably it will not make it to the printed version. If that photojournalist did not sell his photos to the AP and they have not hit the wire , we would not know about the story !!??
If we speak seriously Soliman may not be the suitable for the following reasons : He is old and is suffering from some heart condition that we only know from foreign sources like Robert Fisk. I will not discuss the ugly fact that he is a member in Mubarak’s regime with what these last two words mean.
Both Gamal and Soliman were in Washington with Mubarak and despite Gamal did not make a public appearance there , Soliman was in the front seat due to his role in the Palestinian Israeli talks.
- Despite the news made its way to the world as I have seen it in the BBC ,there are restricted orders to all Egyptian newspapers to avoid any reference to these posters.
- It seems that these restrict orders did not reach Masrawy that published new photos of these posters at Imbaba.
