'Vote like an Egyptian'
A really nice Christmas present - a trio of badges from Cairo, all supporting (or from groups supporting) the successful 'yes' side in the recent constitutional referendum. "An Islamist deluxe collection", in the words of an Egyptian friend.
The green badge displays the Muslim Brotherhood's emblem of two swords, and a short verse from the Qu'ran which translates as: "be prepared". On the top right is a badge of the Salafi 'Nour' party. And the one with President Morsi's image reads: "yes to the constitution".
Nice to know that the very American device of the political campaign button is flourishing in Muslim Brotherhood-run Egypt.
A big thank you to Brian for the badges, and to Shaimaa for the context and translation.
