Don't Point Your Fingari!


A graffiti portrait of one of the Supreme Council for the Armed Forces generals whose name is Fingari. The pun is pretty obvious. This is from Tahrir. Finger pointing is considered very rude in Egyptian culture and he gave a speech in which he did that a lot.

The ruling military council are doing a truly appalling job of running Egypt but are unwilling to take any criticism or suggestions. That's the reference.
