Why are all the Egyptian protest signs in English?


Game Over? We Want Freedom? Out with Mubarak? Who are they talking to? The official language of Egypt is Egyptian Arabic, and is by far the most spoken language in the country. Are the protest signs for the camera? And if so, why is it so important to them that the West read their protest signs as opposed to their own people?

    I agree to a degree, and I believe that this answer is another valid point as to why English, as such a versatile language is quintescential to unifying our global tribe. One tongue means that there is less room for error in understanding.
