People walk under a poster of former Egyptian army chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in El Gamaliya district, where he spent his childhood in the old Islamic area of Cairo May 9, 2014. As the Egyptian state presses its crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood, the man expected to become president has deployed a new weapon in the battle with the Islamists: his own vision of Islam. Al-Sisi, the former army chief who deposed the Brotherhood's Mohamed Mursi and is expected to be elected president later this month, has cast himself as a defender of religion and taken aim at the doctrinal foundations of Islamist groups the state is seeking to crush.The poster reads "The people are with you. Sweet tribute to the great army of Egypt." REUTERS/Amr Abdallah Dalsh (EGYPT - Tags: POLITICS ELECTIONS MILITARY) less
