ReutersEgypt’s generals ban religious slogans in vote, Muslim Brotherhood mulls its motto
Egypt’s ruling military council has amended election rules to ban the use of religious slogans, a move the Muslim Brotherhood said Sunday may prompt it to reconsider using its traditional campaign phrase “Islam is the solution.” The Brotherhood was banned under the ousted President Hosni Mubarak but ran candidates as “independents,” who could be identified on posters by the Islamist group’s well-known slogan.
This most obvious proposal for a new slogan is based on our recent success in occupying Wall Street:
This is the opportunity of a lifetime! The Jihadist movement is nothing but a religious and cultural manifestation of the struggle of oppressed minorities in Third World countries against white imperialists, reactionary Christians, and Zionist colonialists. Islamism's professed disdain for the Western lifestyle, its intolerance towards the bourgeois morals are of vital importance for the international class struggle and have our full-hearted support and cooperation. We will be able to sort our philosophical differences after the Western civilization collapses. We think.

To the shovels, comrades!
Too bad no one will consider these very appropriate posters from our archives...
"Keep Women in their place!"
"What's wrong with a 6th Century lifestyle?"
"Sharia or die"
"Keeping the faith"
"We are the ones Israel has been waiting for"
"Fundamentalists for Change"
"No, really. We aren't fanatics."
"Live Free and Die"
"Out of the frying pan"
"Undoing centuries of secular progress"
"Don't make us blow you up"
"Silence! I keel you!"
"We'll always have Tora Bora"
"All we are saying is give Jihad a chance"
"Vote for us, or a kitten dies"
"If you don't vote for us, Israel wins"
"Look! A FLYING SAUCER!"
"Primitive unchanging superstition FTW"
Will the Peoples printing press be able to fit that on a bumper sticker or campaign button?

As the good folks in the Middle East do not really concern themselves with copyrights, may I suggest:
"HOPE and CHANGE"
It sort of just rolls off the tongue, does it not?
