  • In her article today, Karima Kamal responded to Gehad Ouda's article in Al-Masry Al-Youm. "What Ouda doesn't realize, or perhaps neglects on purpose, is that the third bloc - which he dismissed as a minor power made up of small parties and other people who don't belong to any party - actually encompasses the majority of Egyptians, who for long had turned their back on politics but who have finally seen a ray of hope in the arrival of ElBaradei" she writes.

    Did they see a ray of hope in the arrival of El-Baradei El-Montazzar? I'm not sure, time will prove...

    But she certainly has a point, "they" saw a ray of hope in that third bloc : Egypt's ever-growing social protest movement which sprung in the early 21st century and continues to grow in power, effect and numbers.
