In 2012/12/5, hot spots in Cairo, downtown and Heliopolis, are in panic and without police or traffic police, yet meters away, it’s business as usual. That’s weirdly cool!
2012/12/5, close to Heliopolis, civilians took to streets with belts and sticks to protect their streets. Bringing back the memories of the beginning of from 2011/1/29 till a week or two after 2011/2/11! However, now I saw old men as well, not just youth.
I interpret what is happening nowadays in Egypt as a potential civil war. I’ve always expected it since the beginning of the year, 2012.

What Abdurrahman Ezz claimed about Heliopolis people aiding Islamist thugs is totally false 🙂 The total opposite was happening. Witnesses even claim that all long-bearded men were verbally and physically attacked even by the homeless, after Islamists started attacking peaceful protesters!
