Ad on Dustor

غطرسة مرسي تحرق مصر المحافظات تتحول لكتلة نار قبل ٣٠ يونيو   –   شاهد وشارك

Translation: “Morsi’s arrogance burns Egypt’s provinces, transforming and amassing fire before the 30th June – Witness and Participate”


Translated by Robert Forster.


I usually wouldn’t post this sort of content. Saw this ad on the Dustor Newspaper website and figured it was a pro-June 30th Anti-Morsi advertisement. It stood out. I’m not sure who the martyr is in this case, but it’s brutal nonetheless.

At the time of writing this (18.45 Cairo time) the protests in Tahrir have remained peaceful, however, this sort of advertising reminds us of the tension and horror and anger that lies behind these protests. The sun is going down now, so now is about the time when the character of the protests may change. I hope not, but we shall see.
