The MOI has launched a new PR campaign in an attempt to amend the relation with the public and as usual the PR campaign is a fiasco , a huge fiasco.
First of all it is obvious PR campaign : fake protests for officers and soldiers who are complaining from injustice in the MOI and demanding the prosecution of Habib Al-Adly. It was so fake that people or rather Al Tahrir protesters began to launch jokes on how the snipers of MOI are targeting the officers protesting in front of the MOI building.
Then we got these meetings and visits of the new minister of interior general Mahmoud Wagdy.
And as it is better to join them if you can’t beat them the MOI has now a page in Facebook.
The latest part of this PR campaign is unleashing bunch of officers and cadets speaking about their agony and suffering at the MOI at the popular night talk shows !! Saluting the martyrs of the protesters before the martyrs of the police is not enough I am afraid because those protesters were not killed by anyone except by police officers and CSF soldiers themselves. Putting the blame on the orders from above will not make the families of 365 martyrs officially less angrier from the MOI and the police !!
Ironically all this brought a negative reaction from the public because no 5th grade student would buy all this.I believe the worst move was these officers and cadets speaking on TV shows !!
Minister Mahmoud Wagdy if you want to save the police force and MOI in the new era then you should the following steps which I wrote before :
- Apologize for using the weapon and force of your apparatus in killing and injuring civilians during these 18 days officially.
- Prosecute all the police officers and cadets who are responsible for the murder of civilians in the revolution. Do not tell me that the one who killed that unarmed civilian will continue working in the police force , this man should be hanged.
- Order your police officers to stop whining and hiding like kids and to return ASAP to their positions in the streets , looters and thugs are still threatening the people.
- Punish your police force , no more incentives or bonuses for the rest of the year for leaving their positions and their duty hiding in their houses. “Please do not tell me there were orders , these orders should be broken when they are against the law , the common sense not to mention our national security especially in Sinai”
General Wagdy , this is your opportunity in history , either you seize it or you will continue heading an apparatus that we will continue to hate !!
I just want one of the officer watch this video and tell me how shall I respect the Egyptian police again. “ Graphic”
This video is for one of the injured victim who were badly injured at Tahrir square on January 28,2011. This young man who was doctor trying to save the injured there lost about 1/2 of his blood , his leg was on the verge of amputation. This young man underwent a surgery for 8 hours in Kasr Al Aini hospital !!
The Egyptian police used internationally forbidden ammunition against the civilian unarmed Egyptian protesters and they want us to forgive them so easily !!
There are 160 unidentified bodies at the Zinhom morgue and families are being urged to go there to identify them , those 160 were killed in the revolution of January 25.
Do you know that in the early days of the revolution general hospitals were forced to change the cause of death of the victims !!? Do you know that the general hospitals were ordered not to give a burial permission and release the bodies of the martyrs to theirs families except when they would sign a document that the martyrs died because of natural causes !!?
Do you know that our brave young men from protesters were the ones who saved the poor CSF soldiers from the wrath of the public in January 28th !!? Our protesters helped the poor soldiers , the same soldiers that hit them with sticks brutally to escape from the CSF vehicles when their officers cowardly escape following that order to retry. These wonderful protesters made the soldiers change their cloths giving them their own shirts to escape as fast as they could from the angry public on that day when people.
Compensating the families of martyrs LE 1500 will not make them forget , it will not make us forget. Standing in respect for the martyrs in every TV show will not make us forget or forgive.
Of course I will not speak about the detainees because they are the responsibilities of the armed forces now not the responsibility of the police anymore. General Sami Anan promised the media of their release soon from 48 hours and up till now they have not been released yet.
