Egypt is neither “priests” nor a semi-state.. Alaa Mubarak raises the controversy of the communication sites in Egypt


Cairo- Alaa Mubarak, son of the late Egyptian President Mohamed Hosni Mubarak, topped social networking sites in Egypt, after a tweet to him in which he said that Egypt is not “priests”, an Egyptian slang expression that means old or an old rag of cloth, and that it is not a “semi-state”, which are the terms he uses Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in his speeches.

Mubarak the son’s tweet caused widespread controversy on the communication sites, between a striker, a defender and a cynic, and the “Alaa Khalek in your disappointment” tag was issued on Twitter in Egypt.

Alaa Mubarak had republished a video clip of stations from his father’s life to the tunes of the poem “My Greatest Father.” On one of the comments, stressing that “Egypt has never been, and will not be, God willing, priests or quasi-states.”

Mixed reactions

The pioneers of social networking sites differed in their interaction with the words of the biggest star of the late Egyptian president.

On the other hand, some fans of the late president praised the state of Egypt during his reign, especially at the level of prices and the availability of goods, and a number of them launched an interview, including “Alaa Mubarak is one of us” and “Alaa, stay in your prestige.”

A third group of opponents of the Mubarak and Sisi regimes together participated in the controversy, criticizing the two groups, and marveling at the attack by Sisi’s supporters on the late president, while they have long supported him and opposed the revolution that was launched against him.

It is worth noting that this is not the first time that Alaa Mubarak has raised controversy on Egyptian social networking sites, as he participates in commenting on events from time to time, unlike his younger brother Gamal, who is largely away from commenting on events in Egypt.

The pioneers of the communication sites consider that Alaa’s repeated posts anger the authority in Egypt, which does not want the Mubarak family to return to the political spotlight.
