Blog post of the week: #Black_Bloc and its enigma
From the blog Egyptian Chronicles by Zeinobia:
Black Bloc is the new black in Egypt !! Since their announcement that they do exist in Egypt and since their parade last Thursday as well their role last Friday in the clashes , the media , the government and the MB could not stop speaking about them up till now !!
Suddenly the anarchic group is spread like fire across the country through out the governorates. Since when anarchism is popular in Egypt let alone how a group like that to plan and organize itself in this way !! There is something not clear or correct.
Amazingly the last page is using verses from the Holy Quran in its posts and FB cover. I do not know but we are speaking a new anarchism if it is truly anarchism in the first place. The second page is adopting the popular conspiracy theories of the Hamas militias working for the MB. Ironically many people still believe that Black Bloc is underground MB group intended to spread chaos and to make people hate revolution and the revolutionaries.
Wael Al Abrashi claimed that hosted a member from the Black Bloc but the group denied that he is a member in the group adding that they do not speaking to the media. It is true they do not speak easily to the media and this is why we don’t have any info about them.
Now the MB and its members and supporters are crazy with that new group. As I hinted it is the new black , it is their new boggy man. Aside from accusing the Black Bloc of being the military arm of ElBaradei and Hamdeen Sabbahi as usual , Ikhwan Online accuses Black Bloc of being originally a Christian radical militia headed by a Christian man called Sherif El Sirafy. The report which is based only the claims of anonymous activists also claimed that El Sirafy was a member in the Christian Good battalion group, a thing which is totally denied by the members of the Christian group.
Amazingly after the sudden appearance of Black Bloc , we found Islamists so happy with that comic group like “Muslims Battalions”. Oh yes comic when you see their first statement , it is like a bad comic film by Adel Emam about bunch Upper Egyptian outlaws !!
The group attacked the Copts and threatened them as well opposition figures, media, police and army.
