MB’s First Mass Defiers: The Doctors

Yesterday something profound happened. Thousands of doctors, many of them from governorates outside Cairo, joined the nationwide partial strike to push for their demands. The strike faced considerable opposition from the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), however, judging from news reports yesterday, the strike was widespread and included doctors in regions where the MB wield considerable influence.

Ironically, the MB supported previous strikes before such as the workers’ strike in 2008. But ahhh, that was during Mubarak. Now strikes are bad bad. The MB are the rulers now!

What made yesterday so special was this fact: the MB had always controlled the doctors’ syndicate and yet they failed to prevent thousands of doctors from striking. I consider this to be the first time the MB faced an organized challenge to their power since they took over. This is the beauty of having the MB in power. Now you can gradually see their true colors. During Mubarak they had the luxury to be disguised. Today the rules of the game are very different.

  4. I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering
    issues with your blog. It looks like some of the text
    on your content are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please comment and let me know if this is happening
    to them as well? This could be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Many thanks
