Green or Yellow Hands

Luxor has both Christian and Moslem communities and the politics of the Middle East are equally diverse. Air your views on the situation.

Green is pro CC (Sisi and the army)
Yellow is pro MB (terrorism)
Pink is ???

Bit of a stupid idea in some ways, because you are telling the world who you support and at a time like this it may not be the wisest thing to do.
I was is a coffee shop 2 days ago and apparently Facebook pages are awash with these coloured hands.

They are indeed! On one Luxor based page, if you change your avatar to a green hand, you are instantly thrown out of it's 'community'!
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

Well I have been deleting yellow hands off my FB page, an idea promoted by a yellow hand in the first instance.
And a [european] yellow-hand to boot.....:cool:
