Ramadan Facsism

Arresting people for eating or drinking in public during Ramadan was unthinkable a few years ago. This is scary.

I generally don't eat or drink in public in Ramadan, but I reserve my right to do so if I fucking wish to. Last week I genuinely forgot about the fasting thing and I lit up a cigarette in the street. People gave me creepy looks and taxis wouldn't stop for me. Then all of a sudden it hit me and I threw the cigarette away. I cant believe that I could have been arrested.

How can they do this in a country where one in ten people is a Christian? I don't get it, what is the fucking message here? Do they want to force people to fast? Why? What if a Muslim (or a non-Muslim) doesn't want to fast, why should he or she pretend to be fasting? And why is it offending to people who are fasting to see someone eating or drinking? Who is behind this?

The saddest thing for me was to the amount of support for the arrests. Listen to what the pimp Ezzat Abu Aouf said.

This is very dangerous because once we start going down the slippery slope of religious fascism, Egypt will become another Afghanistan in no time.

  • This is just ignorant. I can't believe that Abu Oaf agrees to this crap. So very sad. Doing it because you want to is one thing and getting arrested and fined is another. Yuck. They are getting crazier by the day.
