When I think about Egypt, I want to both laugh and cry at the same time. Cry for the countless innocent people who have been killed by the security forces, and then labeled terrorists by the media and the army. I laugh at the mockery I see in Egypt politics, and media, where they essentially tell blatant lies and give people the false choice either freedom/chaos or security and repression.
Here's an indie band with a song that channel some of that frustration posing as apolitical movement. No doubt there is no unified voice in Egypt, but the surviving dissident voices have been silenced, jailed and intimidated. So the army and their business partners are now back in business as if January 25th was one big mistake. This is farce....and this song gets it. Had this song had anything of value to say, this channel that picked it would not have shared it with us.
It's if the people of Egypt have to apologize for those who have repressed them for long--sorry come back step on us but keep us safe.
