 Egyptian president-elect’s wife wants to be ‘first servant’ of the people, not first lady


CAIRO — Egypt’s new first lady Naglaa Ali Mahmoud and her predecessor Suzanne Mubarak have at least one thing in common: Both have seen their husbands and sons detained in Egyptian prisons.

The similarities appear to end there.

The deposed President Hosni Mubarak’s wife was an elegant, sophisticated university graduate with a British mother. She was criticized for being elitist, vain, self-important, overbearing and oblivious to the plight of ordinary Egyptians.

By contrast, Islamist President-elect Mohammed Morsi’s wife is a conservative, religious Muslim who wears a veil and did not attend college. Detractors consider her style to be emblematic of Egypt’s steady march toward conservative Islam, while supporters proclaim that her modest demeanor and background embody the democratic spirit of the revolution.

 Re:

Hmm. First servant, huh. Representing what Egypt's drift toward conservatism is. Look at Iran, Saudi Arabia, Somilia, Pakistan, etc. Then look at a young believer martyred for Christ in Tunisia. I think one will get the impression what awaits Egypt under sharia.
