Rally against the disqualification of Egypt's presidential candidate Hazem Abu Ismail

Politics , Egypt - 06 April 2012

On April 6, 2012 thousands of Salafi Islamists rallied in Cairo's Tahrir square to protest the disqualifying of Hazem Salah Abu Ismail from 2012 Egypt's presidential race, after Egyptian Authority for Migration and Passports issued a statement saying that Abu Ismail's mother is a US citizen.

Protesters carried posters of Abu Ismail in solidarity with him. They aslo demanded an 'Islamic State' and to have the Sharia applied across the country.

The announcement about his mother is particularly embarrassing for Abu Ismail, who has used anti-U.S. rhetoric in his campaign speeches and said he rejects "dependency" on America.
