Gamal Mubarak's supporters form a party with Pan Arab aspirations ... (look at you!)

" A coalition formed to support the son of former President Hosni Mubarak for the presidency is seeking to establish a political party. Supporters of Gamal Mubarak are attempting to maintain their political activities past the post-Mubarak era.
Gamal al-Menshawy, a founder of  al-Sahwa al-Arabiya (The Arab Renaissance), said the new entity includes Magdi al-Kurdy, the leader of the popular pro-Gamal campaign. He said the new party upholds concepts and goals that have not yet been addressed, adding that it embraces Egyptians from all social classes....
He explained that one of the party's goals is to establish a confederation of Arab states, with each state preserving its own political system, in addition to issuing a unified Arab currency, a common Arab economic market and a joint Arab army... Last August, al-Kurdy, then an unknown political activist, banded together a coalition to support Gamal for presidency. The ruling NDP denied any links to the campaign."
