It is either u know and u lie or u dont know. This man was in a protest against Morci not Shafik. I wonder why do u twist the facts, we know that Morsi is ur guy here to carry on ur plans in the region. But lie in a more professional way.

I dont think your captions on the photos are entirely true...you are stating that all the egyptians were chanting when Morsi won the elections but that's not true...if you look into the results you will see that he got only 5.4 million votes that like 7% of Egypt's population !!!

@waelselsherif he got 13 million votes of 25 millons, this is not 7% of Egypt population, it is 26% of 50 millions eligible for voting
