Is Egypt living in a political mess? Has the country become weak about confronting minority groups? Are we going to wake up one day to find ourselves involved in the conflicts of these groups while marginalizing the intellectuals? If this is not true, how can we interpret the statement of the political science professor, Magdy El Sherbiny, comparing the 6th of April youth movement to the free officers' organization? In what frame shall we understand the battle for the Egyptian presidency on the internet? As the human right's activist, Dalia Zeydada, announced in last Tuesday’s poll results where the "counterfeit" leader won against the "illegal" heir to the presidency.

 The brotherhood representative, Essam El Erian was the third person, while all the respectable names came at the end of the list. Amr Moussa ranked the sixth position with only 4% advocacy, the same percentage as Omar Soliman. Finally, Ahmed Zowail and Mohamed El Bardaey tied at 3%. Although the poll is not attributed to a reliable institution and its tools and publisher are unknown, it prompted a fight in which all sides got involved.

Ayman Nour, who tries hard to appear through pretensions beginning from his divorce story, an anonymous assault, and ending by protesting in a hotel, rejects his residence without showing his ID. Nour found this poll a great opportunity to attack and accuse his opposition, Gamal Mubarak, describing him as a "vague phenomena". Undoubtedly, the national party men responded, including Mohamed Heba, the secretary of youth, who considered Nour as "a patient who needs a psychiatrist."

A few days before this poll, the Gamal Mubarak supporters' Facebook group wrote out the ‘20 Reasons for Choosing Gamal to be the Next President’. The list was published on the Egyptian news websites, but please, no one ask me about the group as I consider them like the activists.

The 20 advantages of Gamal Mubarak include; "He is the president's son who is qualified, respectable, charismatic and experienced," and “He has good foreign relations and he is fully aware of the political issues," The list also mentions, “He is the leader of the amendment revolution," and “He is a great supporter of youth and women."

If you stop at each reason, you will be shocked, because they turn him from the party policy secretariat to a leader of the amendment revolution and a leader as if he is not a leader for evil and corrupted people.

Although I suspect the activist's poll and I doubt Gamal's advantages, I don’t see any supporters to those who were put at the top of the list. The presidency seat is reserved no matter what. It will only change if the constitution is amended so that every citizen can elect himself with no counterfeit elections and also if there are judges supervising and freedom of expression and the formation of many parties. But these things are not in place because those in power like the current situation, full of conflicts.

It is not a battle formed by youth or teens through the internet, but it is an organized and planned campaign to force Egyptians to choose between two tough choices.

The poetry prince said: it is a strange incident at the snake's obsession and the scorpion's deceit.
