Question of the Day

“Do we not deserve democracy? Aren’t we worth anything?” said an emotional Alaa el-Saim, a retired army engineer in a broad-brimmed hat to protect from the sun. He pointed to the shooting by troops on Friday of pro-Morsi protesters. “It’s the first time I’ve seen that — the army shoots at us with weapons they bought with the taxes I paid.”
