I can not forget I’m in Egypt my love to Egypt and my wishes for a better tomorrow for Egypt. I wish I was an economist so I could use my expertise to suggest ways to improve Egyptian economy that was for many years facing aggressive theft and demolition that reached its top on 2011 and the two following years under complete control of the Devils Brotherhood DB for short formerly known as Muslim Brotherhood and Devils here points to its members not the Islamic Religion with all due respect to all Religions!
In an agricultural country one of its best agricultural products was the Egyptian Cotton that farmers could sell locally and had to export it at any cost to survive, and as a result the best tissues factories in Mehala-Kobra could not find the necessary raw materials to keep up production this is a tragedy!
The last crisis of Alwafd party explains to us how is the political parties from inside. All political parties seek authority not seeking to introduce alternative to the citizen. Egyptian parties without exception doesn't have a real alternative to Egypt's problem.
I do not know who wants to put a veil on media like fanatics want to cover women in Egypt. Even the Prime Minister didn't know who was responsible for preventing the anchor Reem Maged from appearing in her talks show on ON TV private television. Indeed, somebody was able to prevent her from appearing on her channel, but failed to do the same with the German channel Deutsche Welle. This person forgot that we have all kind of technology that allows whoever wants to watch her to do so whenever and wherever he wants.
Furthermore, this person failed to prevent several channels from attacking Egypt, but succeeded to prevent this anchor from appearing in her show.
In the last two days, many activists have discussed different points of views concerning the execution judgments which was issued by the Egyptian judiciary against leaders of the Muslims Brotherhood and supporters of other terrorist organizations.
People divided into couple of teams: the first supports the judgements and the second condemns them.
Strangely enough, defendants of those terrorists are the same people whom we used to consider among supporters of liberalism and the revolution.
When I think about the current events in our country since we got rid of the Muslim Brotherhood’s regime in Egypt, I move back and forth between optimism and pessimism about the future of our country.
I feel optimistic while thinking about the future of the Egyptians who suffered for long from decreasing morals in the streets as well as losing human feelings within the community in general. However, people in Western societies enjoy more morals and human feelings even if they don’t have to assure them by religious belonging.
President Sisi's efforts to develop Egypt makes me optimistic, but I lose such optimism when I find the majority of Egyptian people not willing to work hard in order to achieve better further
There are many crises announced by the Egyptian media in the previous period, such as pilots crisis in Egypt ,
okra crisis, donkey crisis, Lady of the airport, Abu Trika crisis, and dustman's son who can’t work as judges.
I noticed that the Egyptian media is the only platform that presents such crises. This is not just an accident, but rather according to the scheme of conspirator of external intelligence that works against Egypt in order to create chaos and destruction.
Ex-president Sadat R.I.P last accomplishment before being assassinated in the middle of his own people while celebrating his best accomplishment the 6th October victory! I re-iterate Camp David was his last accomplishment that completely liberated Sinai and as well Gaza being recognised as an occupied territory more over couple of days ago it was the memorial of Palestine occupation!
Today is the day where we can finally see some justice in Egypt. Today is the day Mohamed Morsi was sentenced to death. What bothers me, is I saw a lot of people on social media condemning this sentence. Saying democracy and the revolution was all for nothing, and that this sentence is in fact the beginning of dark days for Egypt.
I am actually quite offended when I hear statements like these. I can tolerate different opinions but to a point. I find myself de-friending people when it comes to this topic. I wish to take this opportunity to explain why. First, I would like to remind everyone of what exactly Morsi is behind bars for. He is charged with inciting violence. When is this ever an acceptable action? Especially come from the person who is supposedly leading the country? He is also charged with incitement for murder. Let's not forget that he is the one who is related to all those criminal charges for acts of terrorism. Above and beyond what he is charged for, have any of the ignorant people stopped to think about a critical aspect of his ouster?
It is assumed in any country that all people subject to one law and they all have the same duty . Moreover, all citizens are supposed to be equal before the law, but the status in Egypt is completely different and opposite to this.
There are several states withing the Egyptian state including state of judges, state of Finance Ministry employees , the state of the economic institutions, organizations workers , the State of Telecom Egypt workers, and state of employees in banks.
Each of these states have its own laws that are totally unrelated to the Egyptian state law or constitution.
They all don't subject to the same system for salaries but each of these ministries and agencies has a different system of salaries and incentives and its method of appointment.
What Was said by the Minister of Justice that Dustman’s son cannot be a judge is exactly true. We know this, but still refuse the statement. Furthermore, we know that all sovereign jobs require certain conditions and are prohibited for certain people like Copts.The Minister of Justice statement only revealed some facts that we all know but reuse to acknowledge in public. We insist on deceiving ourselves.
There is no equality between the people in Egypt, but the constitution states exactly the opposite. Here, a judge may work according to his desires and not according to constitution and law. He or she may classify the people according to their families and not according to their work.
It’s forbidden for the lower classes to reach the upper ones and dustman's son can’t look forward to being judges. In our countries, failure is guaranteed for most people, but success is not for all.
I wrote this article, believing that there is no Egyptian Church in the international tourist city "Venice", as there is no Coptic community in this city. So I thought His Eminence Abba Kyrillos, Bishop of Milan, will never establish a Church in that tourist city.
However, I found out that I have made a fatal mistake, since I was surprised this morning to hear what His Eminence said about establishing a new church on the name of St. Mark. He also said that the license of the new church took 9 years!
Officially on the 8th of May 1945 or seventy years ago the World War II ended leaving behind bitter memories, millions of deaths and many cities and countries demolished!
Adolph Hitler bombarded England to the point London was burnt, France one of the first countries falling victims of the Nazi occupation not to forget Greece, Switzerland and most of Europe who was not allied like Italy had to be occupied even who thought that was safe and ally like the Russians were surprised to be subjects of occupation, and who knows if that war had continued he, Hitler might had occupied Italy too!
This is human nature, when you have powers and people supporting you either out of love and because they are convinced of your principals and gaols, or equally because they are scared from you!
The truth of the matter is, terrorists are winning. This may be a bold statement, but I want to focus on the three main points that will hopefully serve as a wake up call to maybe perhaps change our current state of living. It is no surprise hearing a bout a bomb going off, a police officer being killed, new martyrs joining Jesus in heaven. What is surprising is our reaction.
We hear about Sisi talking about the fight against these actions. We ourselves have millions of pictures or mourning and devastation and emotional breakdowns. Every time a tragedy happens, we find our selves reacting in the same way. And you know what? This is exactly the reaction the terrorists are living for, expecting. What person would kill 21 innocent victims, and then be sad when they see the families of loved ones crying, and the funerals, and memorials being held? None. People who kill, kill for the thrill of watching the world's reaction.
I lived in Switzerland that’s according to the UN has the happiest people all over the world, and also lived in Egypt that came in the 155 place at the same list. I have to think and compare between the two countries.
Switzerland is a well-developed country where Egypt is still struggling to fight retardation and illiteracy. I wondered as I saw the Egyptian people respecting the law in Switzerland and system even better than the Europeans. There, the streets are clean and appealing unlike the dirty ones here. Furthermore, the people u
In the early twentieth century, the great liberal man Ahmad Lutfi al-Sayed, run for the parliamentary elections.
However he didn't need so much effort to win the elections; his enemies decided to defame him claiming he is a democratic man who left Islam and embraced the Western democracy that promotes freedoms and pornography. The ignorant people asked Lutfi al-Sayed: Are you democratic? Of course, I am, said he. This simple answer was more than enough to burn his electoral platform and cause him great loss.
This story happened in Egypt several times as the ignorant people are being manipulated to achieve certain goals.
There were several disasters and calamities experienced in Egypt this month.
First, 500 tons of phosphate sank in the Nile a week ago, which occupied the Egyptian public opinion amid floundering statements by officials and experts who tried to reassure the citizens about the polluted water. Experts assured that the phosphate contains a number of Heavy metals such as uranium and cadmium, which cause adverse effects on human beings in case of melting in the water.
However, some Ministers claimed it’s hard to dissolve in the water since it’s a metal, which is totally wrong. It's a scientifically known fact that phosphate is a salt of phosphoric acid.
After the end of the unwarranted visit of Pope Tawadros to the Netherlands with a delegation of several bishops and priests, he is going to travel to Austria for treatment. Then, he will fly to Italy to hold a conference with bishops and priests of Europe in the most expensive city in Europe, Venice.
Here, I wonder why this tourist city was chosen to hold such conference? Do the bishops and priests need such tourism and entertainment with the very limited resources of the Coptic Orthodox Church. The conference could have been held in one monastery of the Coptic church in Europe in order to save a lot of money.
To be an Egyptian journalist on World Press Freedom Day (3 May), one must have a healthy sense of ironic juxtaposition. In Egypt, as most journalists and readers know, the words freedom and journalism, particularly under the harsh light of the Al-Sisi regime, in the same sentence elicit a loud and bitter laugh. Freedom of speech has never, in many years in this profession covering Egypt, been a mainstay. But in the past 20 months, while Al-Sisi ruled initially De jure and now De Facto, holding a pen has become associated only with fear and oppression-especially if you write in the political/economic realm. Indeed, as respected Egyptian journalist Yosri Fouda said, last week: “The current scene in Egypt is among the worst in journalism history.” I disagree – in 25 years of practicing, reading, watching and listening to Egyptian media this is, without equivocation, the darkest hour for Egyptian media. But the regime neglects an important detail, just as it plies the journalistic drink with fear it greatly fears the very pen it attacks.
Any one who looks at the political parties today will feel without a doubt that It is impossible to have a sound political life in this situation. We all recently read about what happened with the Alwafd Party and how a group of people inside the party itself wanted to isolate the president of the party for the sake of a reform.
It has not only been the Alwafd party suffering from this hassal, but all political parties in Egypt are suffering from different diseases. I wonder how the political parties will enter the next parliament election while most of them suffer from internal conflicts.
I met with many atheists in the United States of America, and was surprised to find the words "In God We Trust" on its banknotes, which was adopted as the official motto of the United States in 1956. I’ve always wondered which God they mean or accept if many of them don’t really believe in God. Finally, I found it responds to mercy and tolerance rather than any other God or religion.
In the Middle East, we have so many religious people that the Egyptian people for example are generally called “religious people”; however, we are losing many beautiful human values and morals including mercy and tolerance, and left those morals and values for the atheists to adopt and apply since they have mercy by nature and apply them away from written commandments.
