I noticed that Western media did not bother to write about the political significance of the strong showing of leftist Nasserist candidate, Hamdin Sabbahi. I was looking at the voting behavior in Egypt and it is very significant that he did very well among various parts of Egypt (less so in rural area). I will have to write something about that this week. And if you look at the vote some 3/4 of Egyptians voted against the Mubarak regime (and against Israel, of course). Even Shafiq was speaking against Israel in his campaign.
