Egypt Will Face a Hunger Revolution
The sources said that Egypt could face a real disaster of hunger and that a revolution will eventually start, not nowadays but soon enough due to the horrors affecting the people. They stressed that the Egyptian people had waited too long for an improvement of the daily life but they are facing conditions which are much worse than those which they had experienced in the past thirty years, explaining that the Egyptians middle class has been affected directly by the new situation since President Morsi received his post last year.
The sources related to me a kind of incident which has not been seen before in Egypt. They said: “A few days ago, while I was sitting with a friend at their home, we heard somebody strongly knocking at the door.When we opened, the person surprised us with his question: Do you have any kind of food in your house? For the first moment we thought that he was hungry and we invited him to enter in order to prepare a meal, but he refused and again he asked us: Do you have any kind of fast food at home?We brought him some bread and cheese but the person did not eat what we gave him. Instead, he went down to the street near the garbage containers to offer the bread and cheese to another man who was eating from the waste because of hunger.We had never seen an Egyptian eating from the garbage before”. The person who knocked on the door had been so moved by what he saw that he went to the nearest door to ask for food.
