This can only happen in Egypt: The people revolt, and overthrow a tyrant regime, and in the first post revolution presidential elections, one of the old regime’s most brutal and clandestine strongmen run for president!
Omar Suleiman, former Egyptian army general, and head of intelligence services, announced he is running for president in the post revolution presidential elections of 2012. Ironically he did that on the 6th of April, a date the marks the anniversary of the 2008 Egyptian general strike, which a lot perceive as one of the lead ups to the 25th of Jan revolution.
Suleiman in the official speech declaring his candidacy Suleiman, claimed that he was pressured into running by his supporters and that he accepted to “Protect the Revolution”! The Nerve on this guy! He really is shameless!!!
Suleiman seems to forget his own statements a year and 2 months back, when he as a VP was claiming that the revolution was because of “foreign influence” and was asserting that the Egyptians were not ready for democracy yet!
Suleiman actually went ahead with it and today he formally filed his presidential candidacy application with the Supreme Presidential Electoral Commission (SPEC). Another Ironic coincidence is that today the 8th of April coincides with the memory of the tragic bombing of Bahr El-Baqar primary school in 1970, by no other than Suleiman’s close friends, the IDF, another telling coincidence I guess!
But for all those who don’t believe in Signs & coincidences, here is an introduction to the butcher to awaken the Sadomasochistic slavery addicts who want to elect this monster, those who would trade off freedom with shackles & oppression under the fake illusion of security and safety…
