THIS is OBVIOUSLY 'alien' to Egyptian society -- of course Dr. Tamer Sha`aban Ali (as his Zionist name indicates) and other organisers and commentators on this page are not 'REAL Egyptians' nor are they 'REAL Muslims' ... Of course this is a conspiracy -- 'foreign' hands have infiltrated the country and caused the bombing weeks after having sent the GPS-directed sharks to eat up tourists in Sinai ... The reason? Simple, it's because Egypt is a pioneer in all fields of life, speaker of the Upper House told Egyptians.
El-Mokhles TV, one of the organisers of the campaign against the joint prayer of solidarity on January 6 hosts a number of links like this one which propagate conspiracy theories about Coptic organisations with links to Zionism and accuses them of perpetrating the terrorist attack. The page administrators also conducted a short survey on their status at 02:42 on Tuesday asking participants 'Who do you think is the biggest beneficiary from the Alexandria attack -- Copts? Muslims? the State? Other?' The results are shown in the screenshots below:
Another post on the page asked whether the attack targeted the Al-Qidissain Church or the mosque across the street. Again, the result was very 'alien' to Egyptians although the respondents weren't : the attack targeted the mosque of course -- the explosion occured 3 metres away from the mosque and 8 metres away from the church, and yet, the victims were predominantly Christians, go figure!
Of course, this all points to one thing -- of course they don't point to the rapid spread of hate speech and conspiracy theories in a socially-decaying Egyptian society; nor does it point towards a failed state and a culture of repression and counter-repression. If any thing, they point towards 'foreign' hands and 'alien' ideas that are conspiring against Egypt -- maybe Zionist or American, but maybe Iranian or Shi`a given the new wave of regional hate-speech and incitement.
Sigh. I leave it in your hands to judge.
In the meantime, this is getting too much for me -- they say the sand in Alexandria is splendid this time of the year. Anyone wanna join me? I think I'll go for a head-burying henak.
