A Sisi Booster Who Has All the Bases Covered

This gentleman, recently photographed at an Egyptian rally supporting Field Marshal al-Sisi, really seems to have covered all the bases:
  • Shirt with Egyptian flag and Eagle of Saladin. Check.
  • Round shield-like object covered with Sisi pictures. Check. 
  • Holding Qur'an in right hand. Check.
  • Holding Christian cross adorned with picture of Coptic Pope in left hand. Check.
  • Scale model of Army tank perched atop head.  Of course, doesn't everybody?
