'Revenge Friday' 30th August 2013

RE: Advice. British Embassy. British Vice Consul.



We corresponded last on the 20th Aug, and it has been fairly quiet since then. We have now received reports that the Muslim Brotherhood have called for huge demonstrations to take place in Cairo on Friday 30th August 2013, calling it “ Revenge Friday”.



It is expected that rallies will take place in Ramses Square, Ethehadiya Palace and Sphinx Square Mohandseen, with those attending beginning marches all over the city and making their way to those areas.

Information received suggests that the likely areas where demonstrators will convene before beginning their marches are as follows:

· Sohayeb Mosque- Sharbeya

· Taqwa Mosque Shubra Al Khaimah (Orabi Bridge)

· Al-Qods mosque Al-Marg St., Ain Shams

· Noor Mohamady mosque Matareya

· Aziz Bellah Mosque Zatoon

· Salam Mosque Tenth District, Nasr City

· Alf Maskan Mosque in Alf-Maskan

· Al-fattah Khalafawy

· Alhamd Mosque in Fifth settlement

· Al-Mahdy mosque in Salam city

· Maraghi Mosque Helwan

· Riyadh Mosque Maadi

· Abu Bakr al-Siddiq Mosque Dar Al-Salaam

· Amr ibn al-Aas Mosque in Ancient Egypt

· Al-Rahman Al-Arhim Mosque in salah salem

· Al-Noor Msoque Abassiya

· Al-Fattah Mosque in Ramsis

· Al-Tawheed Ghamra

· Al-Esteqama msoque in Giza

· Asad bin Euphrates mosque Dokki

· Khalid ebn al-waleed Mosque KitKat

· Msotafa Mahmoud Mosque Mohandseen

· Makhfera Mosque Mohandseen

· Al-Sabah Mosque Haram

· Al-Rahmah Mosque Haram

· Al-Tawheed Mosque Haram

· Al-Hosary Mosque 6 of October

· Ragheeb Mosque 6 of October



Please avoid these areas and heed our general and consistent advice to avoid all demonstrations. If you become aware of any nearby protests, leave the area immediately.

Please also continue to observe the curfew hours which have been extended as you are all aware to be between the hours of 09:00 pm to 06:00 am.

Well, that's more or less the whole of Cairo!

I suspect that most of the MBs have never even heard
of Martin Luther King, so won't be aware of the anniversary
being celebrated and they won't know this apt quotation from him:

'Man must evolve for all human conflict
a method which rejects revenge. The
foundation of such a method is LOVE.'

A pity .... He could teach them so much about
successful, peaceful protests.

I did notice that myself! Whoever wrote the information originally made a big mistake.

I have not ready any warnings for Luxor. I hope all stays calm and under control there.

i am looking forward to eating at Taste of India again, :up I was told the food was award winning.
But i never realised that the award was the Cheltenham Gold Cup... :D

Diversity in the consumption of food is a good thing, people who are not prepared to eat outside of their regular menu are in my opinion, Blinkered... :cool:

If I dont make it to Luxor in October, it will be an It's an unbridled disaster... :cg

If they do, you can always rely on the "fire-ring squat". 8)

Yep it was certainly a non-starter here in Luxor. About 50 of them standing quietly outside the hospital and that was it!!!! :)

But at least they had the common sense to be close to a building which would of been beneficial to them if it had kicked off. :up

We passed a convoy of armed trunks, police cars on our way out of Karnak in the morning, they were well prepared for any trouble. It was so nice to travel back to and through a peaceful Luxor later that night.
It is what it is.
