"Egypt would be the center of governing while theU.S. will be the center of the army."Perhaps more than any other media personality inEgypt, Mr. Okasha's divisive diatribes defending themilitary and slamming antimilitary protesters havegiven a voice to Egyptians with little education whohave seen few benefits from their country's politicalopening and feel alienated by a complex politicaldiscourse.Mr. Okasha's show, "Egypt Today," on his AlFaraeen, or "The Pharoahs" satellite channel, showoffers a traditional vision of Egyptian strength thathas been lost in the political turmoil."One of the aims of introducing this channel was torevitalize the idea of nationalism amongst Arabs," Mr.Okasha said.In Mr. Okasha's shows, delivered in his signaturecountryside patois that contrasts sharply with theformal Arabic spoken by other Egyptian TV hosts,viewers find an appealing and digestible version of complex events.He absolves the interim ruling Supreme Council of Armed Forces, or SCAF, of any guilt for the violenceand economic stagnation that have persisted sincethe revolution while echoing the military's claims thatblame a nebulous foreign-born conspiracy for seeking to destroy Egypt.Mr. Okasha displays an earthy appeal on air,dropping bits of knowledge about small villages andarcane countryside customs that fly below the radarsof Cairo's political class.
