Abdul-Samad backs Hazem Abu Ismail

Zahy notes in a comment that El Naschie's ex campaign manager Mohammed Abdul-Samad has endorsed the Salafist candidate Hazem Abu Ismail, according to Abdul-Samad's Facebook page.


Ismail would restrict alcohol consumption to private residences, close gambling casinos, and ban bikinis. He has gained notoriety in the West with his praise of Osama bin Laden:


As it happens, Ismail has just been disqualified by Egypt's ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) as a candidate because his mother has a US passport. There are 48 hours for Ismail to appeal the ruling. If he fails, Abdul-Samad will have to make another choice.

  1. Is the ban of bikinis intended for foreign tourists also? It would be interesting to see photos from beaches in Hurgada or Sharm-el-Sheikh (both destinations very popular among Slovenians), if Ismail took the office. :D

  2. Yes, tourists in 2-piece bathing suits would be arrested. Gambling casinos are already tourist-only and they would be closed. Bars would be closed. From the article I linked about him, "About tourism, he says he wants to improve it and develop all its kinds" but this seems like the wrong approach, doesn't it? o_O
