A sign of things to come?
The government arrests Kifaya Mmembers, and releases Muslim Brotherhood members on the same day! Egyptian police detained a doctor and a lawyer on June 14 for handing out opposition pamphlets to passersby on a Cairo street, police and their party said. Mohammed Shafik and Ahmed Saad had been handing out leaflets calling for an end to the state of emergency in force in Egypt since 1981, an official of their Kifaya (Enough) party said. "Enough of corruption, unemployment, repression and arrests. Enough of a party that is neither patriotic nor democratic," the pamphlets said, mocking the name of the ruling National Democratic Party. [...] Egyptian authorities on June 14 released a group of 137 supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood movement who had been rounded up during a string of pro-reform protests last month, judicial sources said. Those freed included engineers, doctors and students from various cities in the northern delta region and southern Egypt. The release, ordered by Attorney General Maher Abdel Wahid, came two days after the authorities freed 163 members of the movement. God help us all!
