The fifth episode of the series "The Choice 2", which was broadcast on a number of Egyptian and Arab satellite channels, which dealt with the events of the Rab'a sit-in dispersal, brought back painful memories for millions of Egyptians, who witnessed that bloody day, and ended according to the lowest estimates, which are those issued by the National Council for Rights Humans (government) killed 632 people, and about 4,400 injured.
The series produced by the United Media Services Company "Synergy" headed by Tamer Morsi, which serves as the media arm of the Egyptian Intelligence, especially the episode that was broadcast yesterday, which not only led to distress among many, but also returned to the facade the societal division around the incident. Social communication is a state of great variation in dealing with the series.
A spokesperson for Synergy announced yesterday that the fifth episode of the series "The Choice 2", which witnesses the events of the Rab'a sit-in dispersal, will be broadcast without advertising breaks, as it "contains important events that have passed in the history of Egypt, and accordingly the decision was to waive the outcome of the advertising breaks in advance. " According to him.
Activists and intellectuals in broadcasting the TV episode anticipated that what is presented in this series is a failed attempt to distort history, which will continue to be mentioned that the dispersal of the Rab'a sit-in is the worst massacre in modern Egyptian history.
A real and sad thing, what insistent country may impose its narrative even if it reopens the largest trauma to which all who live here are exposed
The biggest massacre in the contemporary history of Egypt, the biggest moment of polarization and charging of violence, and encouragement for people to engage in violations and perform a police performance on some, to be celebrated on television in the month of Ramadan, and people eat Qatayef

# Rabiaa is a premeditated massacre, and it will not change its reality. A series in which artists get millions involved in changing a history that is still recent.
The blood of the victims is stronger than the drama faking!

His desperate attempts to falsify awareness and turn the facts about the crime of the age # the massacre_ the fourth largest massacre of peaceful sit-in protesters in history and greater than the Tiananmen massacre in China
reminds me of an old movie in which a short one deals with saying
I am tall and I am not short !!

The Human Rights Watch report "According to the Plan" described the Rabaa Al-Adawiya sit-in dispersal massacre as the largest mass killing carried out against protesters in the modern era. The report stated that the crimes committed amount to "war crimes"

I hear about someone visiting a distant date, but the idea of falsifying a reality that occurred only several years ago and was documented by hundreds of videos, and the death toll, according to the government personally, is the largest in modern Egyptian history.

Social media platforms in Egypt witnessed after the broadcast of the series a wide range of activity from those who opposed it, who re-posted videos of the real dispersal of the sit-in through the hashtags "Rabaa Massacre" and "Choice 2 ″" and other hashtags, which topped the trend of "Twitter" for short tweets; to counter what They called it "Fake Snapshots and Events" in the series.
Arab and Egyptian activists from various political orientations tweeted to confirm the failure of the series to erase the memory of a fourth, which was and will remain alive in the conscience of the world, which will not forget the killing and burning of innocent people by the police and the army under the supervision of Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, the current president of the republic, who was then defense minister.
The language is too weak to describe what happened on August 14, 2013. The word "massacre" is less than the war crime committed by the state.
Al-Sisi, the army and interior commanders, members of the special forces, the parachute squad and snipers, who split up children, women and men standing in front of the bulldozers responsible before our Lord and before the people.

Oh, the series # Al-Ekhtiar 2, the scenes, will you answer them in the episode. Do you not want to see the dramatic plot, and will you sabotage your plan to distort a fourth sit-in?

The Rabaa massacre will remain a historical disgrace, not only against the Egyptian army, Sisi, or the Ministry of the Interior, but on all of us, for all the Egyptian people who witnessed this massacre and did not hold those who participated in it and killed people accountable. # The choice is for Bani Adam to have a conscience # Fourth_ Massacre_Innocent # The fourth massacre # The Fourth Massacre # Fourth pic.twitter.com/jGOdTZs4gD

Al-Sisi, the butcher, and the military clique believe that the drama will clear the grievances of the dead, the fourth massacre, and
change history in the scenario of the series.
Their crimes are preserved in sound and image, and their witnesses are alive.
This is in this world ..
As for the hereafter

The regime understands very well, that it governs Egypt with the legitimacy of the praises.
The energetic group that decided to revive the ugliest memory that happened in the modern history of Egypt in the form of trivial speeches in the form of serials aimed at transforming the carnage into a great national achievement.

The selection series will go to the dustbin of history and will be taught as a model for falsifying the facts, and its fourth massacre
will remain a model as the largest level of violence practiced by an armed authority against a group of people.

On the other hand, the pro-regime media praised the series, and said that it documented the events of the Rab'a sit-in dispersal with great craftsmanship, and a number of them confirmed that the series "Choice 2" is a painful and painful blow to the heart of terrorist organizations, and everyone who finances, supports, supports and sympathizes with them.
The journalist Nashat Al-Daihi, who is close to the Egyptian regime, praised the series, and said in his program "Paper and Pen" on the "TeN" satellite channel that those he described as the Brotherhood militia were the ones who fired the first bullet in the Rab'a dispersal in the chest of an Egyptian officer, to fall as a martyr, adding All this destruction and killing were documented in a dramatic context in the fifth episode of the series "Choice 2".
In turn, the journalist, Lamis Al-Hadidi, who is close to the regime, said through her program "Last Word" broadcast on the "Extra News" satellite channel, "All generations must see this historical epic, and it must be taught in schools, as we do not teach what is done." By Hassan Al-Banna (founder of the Muslim Brotherhood), it is imperative to teach what the Brotherhood committed in a fourth crime, and a fourth was a terrorist focus. "
Supporters of the Egyptian regime shared clips of the series on social media, and touching words for a number of its heroes, and thanked the makers of the series and the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, who saved Egypt from being lost, as they described it.

At the dawn of August 14, 2013, the Egyptian police backed by army forces dispersed the sit-in of supporters of the ousted President Mohamed Morsi in Rabaa Al-Adawiya Square (east of Cairo), after more than 48 days that the protesters had spent there.
This left large numbers of dead and wounded, and after 14 hours it took the dispersal of the sit-in, estimates of the number of dead were numerous.
The forensic medicine announced, in an official statement, on November 5, 2013, that the total number of victims was 377, including 31 unidentified bodies, while the National Council for Human Rights (governmental) issued a report in which he said that the number of people killed in the Rabaa Al-Adawiya sit-in was 632. 8 policemen were killed.
On the other hand, unofficial sources presented much higher numbers than those circulated by official circles, as the coalition in support of the late President Mohamed Morsi announced on August 15, 2013 that the total number of deaths in the dispersal of the Rab'a sit-in alone amounted to 2,600 people, which is the same number that the field hospital issued. In a fourth time.
The sit-in was dispersed about a month and a half after a coup led by current President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi when he was Minister of Defense on July 3, 2013, when the constitution was suspended, and Morsi was dismissed after one year in power as the first elected civilian president in modern Egypt.
