Ikhwan supreme guide Badie reportedly in hospital; Muslim Brotherhood reveals this week’s theme: Never gonna give you up

Ikhwan Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie was reportedly hospitalized this weekend, according to a report from Turkey’s Anadolu. The newswire, which has in the past had good contacts in the Brotherhood, quotes an unnamed source as saying, “Badie is suffering a circulatory collapse” and was transferred to Manial Hospital in Cairo early on Saturday. Badie’s family claims not to have been informed of his hospitalization.

Meanwhile, the Muslim Brotherhood and the National Anti-Coup Coalition have declared this week’s theme (every week they have a theme) to be: ‘Never Let Egypt Down,’ according to a statement published by Ikhwanweb on Friday. The statement is so breathless and exciting that we think it plays much better as the opening text crawl of Star Wars. Watch the statement animated, Star Wars style, here, running time: 1 minute (click on “Begin” once it loads under the Crawl Creator logo). Eventually, however, the music fades out and the text is truncated because the app cannot handle the amount of text.
