Deena Adel notes:
@deena_adel: Omar Suleiman was responsible for countless torture cases & human rights abuses. I have no sympathy for his death, but I won't gloat either.
Sara Salem compares Suleiman with ordinary Egyptians:
@SaraMSalem: Omar Suleiman died while having medical tests in Cleveland. Most Egyptians can't afford to go to a crappy Egyptian public hospital.
Meanwhile, Medhat Rali wonders [ar]:
Veteran Egyptian blogger Wael Abbas started a hash tag #لا_لجنازة_عسكرية_لعمر_سليمان on Twitter in Arabic which translates to No Military Funeral for Omar Sulieman.
Feedo Ahmed reacts:
#لا_لجنازة_عسكرية_لعمر_سليمان لو عملوها نجيب رقصات من شارع الهرم وشوية طبل علي كام واحد من فرقة حسب الله ونزيط بقي في الجنازة
@feedoahmed: If they did it and held a military funeral, we will bring belly dancers and drummers and ruin the funeral for them
Ramy Bakazaboka adds:
@ramy_bakazaboka: There is no point in this. Let them have their funeral which will be attended by his friends the butchers who will lament the loss of the leader of the revenge period
