Egypt's Silent Majority Movement Rall...
Cairo, Egypt
By Video Cairo Sat
11 May 2012

Hundreds of protesters gathered at Hadayeq Al-Qubba Square near Abbassiya on Friday, May 11, in support of the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), to counter criticism provoked by last week's violent clashes in Abbassiya.

Supporters of the SCAF gathered in response to the call of the Silent Majority Movement for a million man march under the slogan 'We are all the Egyptian army,' to express gratitude toward the armed forces and support it against any smear campaigns.

Supporters of the military council blamed the recent Abbassiya violence on protesters, accusing them of instigating chaos and attacking military police.

They expressed appreciation to the SCAF and rejected those who adopt foreign agendas aiming to destroy the military and demolish the country.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) supporter of the SCAF:
"We came to express the voice of the Silent Majority that existed at home. We rejected recent Friday violent clashes and those people who have certain agendas and exploit any incidents to hit the Egyptian army".

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) supporter of the SCAF:
"The armed forces are the protector of all the Egyptian people. The armed forces are a red line. We all support the armed forces because they are our protector". Supporters of the army chanted, "The army and the people are one hand".

Protesters were raising posters of the head of SCAF, Field Marshal Mohamed Hussien Tantawi and chanting statements supporting the Egyptian army.

Protestors affirmed that the SCAF protected the January 25 Revolution, managed the ongoing critical transitional period after the revolution and pledged to hand over power to a civilian president at the scheduled time by the end of June.

The call for the rally came after the recent Friday bloody clashes between protesters and military police.

Clashes began when some protesters threw rocks at the military police as they were trying to reach the Defense Ministry, promoting troops to respond with water hoses and tear gas to disperse the protesters and protect the military facilities.

Clashes left one army soldier killed and hundreds wounded.

Alexandria, Egypt | April 30, 2012

Presidential hopeful Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh, prominent dissident member of the Muslim Brotherhood, held a public conference in Alexandria on Monday evening, April 30, to promote his presidential agenda.

Al-Nour Salafi Party spokesman Nader Bakkar, and liberal political activist Wael Ghoneim supported aboul-Fotouh during the public conference, suggesting that the candidate has successfully gained support from some of the various ideologies of the Egyptian people.

During his statements, Aboul-Fotouh allowed that he felt some former regime figures are "shamelessly" running for president.

The Al-Nour Party, which represents the Salafists of Egypt, has recently announced its support for Aboul-Fotouh in the presidential race, after the election body due to his mother’s dual citizenship status permanently disqualified Sheikh Hazem Salah Abu Ismail.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh:
"The residues of the former regime who failed to run the nation, and preserve its dignity are so blatant and shameless that they offer themselves again to run for president."

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Nader Bakkar:
"The ego of Dr. Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh is very little. He always moves in the framework of a team. His humbleness and smile show the people that he has no problem if his advisers advise him with something contrary to his opinion, but in the end he submits to the opinion of the team."

Aboul-Fotouh stressed that if he is elected as president the military will not be held above the constitution, and it will fall under the country's leadership like all other institutions.

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh:
"We're heading to building the future of Egypt. We will not allow any institution, including the military, to be above the constitution. Rather, the military and the Egyptian army, which we endear and work on making it the strongest in the region, among the tools of the political leadership of the nation. "

SOUNDBITE 4 (Arabic) – Wael Ghoneim:
"The youth must have their opportunities in this country. God willing, this will be achieved by Dr. Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh. Dr. Aboul-Fotouh also managed to gather Egyptians of different ideologies. He is supported by Salafists, Liberals, Muslim Brotherhood supporters, Leftists, revolutionaries, university professors, engineers, average people, and all who want the country to develop. This is a chance for us to unite around a candidate who will hopefully be the president of Egypt."

Aboul-Fotouh promised he would work on making Egypt one of the top 20 strongest countries in the world and one of the richest within 10 years. He also noted that he would restore security to the Egyptian streets within 100 days.

The Muslim Brotherhood dismissed Aboul-Fotouh after two decades of acting as a leading member because of his decision to run for president after the group announced that it would not nominate, or support any one of its members to run for the post. However, the group eventually nominated two candidates, one of whom was disqualified.

Cairo, Egypt | April 6, 2012

Thousands of protestors headed from Al-Fateh Mosque after Friday prayers in Ramsis square downtown Cairo to Tahrir square on Friday, April 6, in support of Islamist Salafist presidential candidate, Hazem Salah Abu-Ismail who may be disqualified from the race after it was announced that his mother was an American citizen.

Protestors see that it is a campaign against Abu-Ismail, which aims at excluding him from Egypt's first post-revolution presidential elections.

Protestors are carrying banners and posters supporting their candidate, chanting anti-military council slogans and other slogans including, "The people want Hazem Abu Ismail," "Islamic, Islamic, "Quran is the constitution".

Protestors denied allegations that Abu-Ismail's mother is American, urging that there is no evidence.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Egyptian man:
"I am here today to support Sheikh Hazem Salah Abu-Ismail because according to the law, that only recognizes documented evidence, if anyone gets an American passport they have to, while in the United States, record video and voice while he is swearing his allegiance as a citizen before the court".

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Egyptian man:
"I'm here with all my brothers to support Sheikh Hazem Abu-Ismail even if his mother holds Israeli passport. We will support Sheikh Hazem Salah Abu-Ismail".

Protestors stressed that they wouldn't allow manipulation, chanting "we’ll live with dignity" which is the motto of Abu-Ismail's presidential campaign.

Abu Ismail said that he faced a "plot." His campaign chief said that the country's military rulers were looking for ways to disqualify the candidate.

Allegations that Abu-Ismail's late mother held a US citizenship surfaced last week after he officially submitted his candidacy papers with the signatures of around 150,000 voters to the Supreme Presidential Election Commission (SPEC) and became an official presidential candidate.

The SPEC reported lately on Thursday that it received an official letter from the Interior Ministry’s Immigration and Naturalization Department confirming that Abu Ismail’s mother, Nawal Abdel Aziz Nour, entered Egypt on a US passport in the last five months before her death.

The Egyptian electoral rules exclude anyone who, or either of their parent, hold another (dual) nationality from running for Egypt's top post.
