Egyptian parliament elections - DNP vs. Muslim Brotherhood

Travel Forums Africa and The Middle East Egyptian parliament elections - DNP vs. Muslim Brotherhood

I'm concerned, I've read all about Egypt's recent elections and the violence it has caused. I've seen pictures of the protesters and the scene looks scary!!

I leave for Egypt in 12 days- I'm excited but a little scared. I'm a 29 y/o American male, I'll be travelling alone- what areas should I avoid??

Why has Egypt's "Muslim Brotherhood" been banned for all of these years? Are they against Democracy? Why are the police assaulting and arresting these people? Is the violence over now that the election is done?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Dear Wil ,
welcome to Egypt ..
you do not have to worry about this at all , they are all political wars that have nothing to do with your tour .
those violent actions happened only in the days of election and not permenantly , and were in the places of election only .. and even not in all places of election , but in some particular places.

Now the election is done , and there is nothing to be scared from in any site in Egypt..
i hope you have a nice stay in Egypt..
