The Sycophancy culture

The  culture of Sycophancy is an Egyptian speciality and many Egyptians have mastered this culture. When watching television you notice former vocal members of the opposition lo and behold transformed into the most vociferous supporters of the incumbent, you see die-hard Zamalek football players up and play for Ahly, you see the same employee who obsequiously served Nazeef, now have no problem playing the same role serving Kandeel with the same "loyalty" - if one can call it that! And the guards who would lay down their life for Mubarak are the same ones that now strut around as the ultimate protectors of Morsi.  How creative you have become oh modern Egyptians! Backbone. What backbone?  It's disappeared.
