When any educated person criticizes Muslim Brotherhood, MB attacks him and accuses him of infidelity and defamation of religion. However, I'm trying to uncover them before the people they are deceiving to know their reality. MB is trading on religion which is an effective tool to have power and authority. They try to look piety and righteous while in fact they are not. They mix between religion and politics though they shouldn't. Religion is pure and holy, but politics is the art of the possible or “Machiavellian” meaning “the end justifies the means”. Egyptian sociologist, Dr. Saad Eddin Ibrahim, head of Ibn Khaldun Center said: "Religion is holy and politics is defiled, how can we mix them?”. However, they mix religion and politics accusing anyone who tries to separate them (in order to preserve the purity of religion) of blasphemy? ..

Egyptians now face several shocks that may lead to another revolution that will burn everything and everybody. After the disappointing verdict on Mubarak and the failure of the revolutionary forces to achieve something in the presidential race, which brought the same polarities: Democratic National Party against Muslim Brotherhood. The conditions are different, but the actions are the same. Revolutionists couldn’t be united, but they are scattered keeping themselves busy calling each other as betrayals! ..

I felt really bad upon reading in Alwatan newspaper that father Salib Matta Sawirus supports the application of the death penalty against the person who defames God, religions, or prophets. The man is member of General Congregation Council and head of Salam international center for human rights as well as a church leader. ..

I'm not exaggerating when I say that this week is a defining moment in the modern history of Egypt, as the runoff will be held between Mohammed Mursy and Ahmed Shafik in the presidential elections. It will determine how Egypt will be for many years to come. Egyptians now have two options: First, a civil state where law is respected, all citizens are equal, religious freedom and rights of the minorities as well as women are respected; where science, researches, inventions and production is the way to develop the country. Second, a religious state governed by Mohammed Badie who promised to establish the first Islamic Caliphate in modern Egypt. ..

I'm surprised that political movements, parties, youth revolution coalitions as well as liberal candidates for the presidency are going to support Dr. Mohammed Mursy, the candidate of Muslim Brotherhood against Ahmed Shafik. They know that Mursy and his Freedom and Justice Party are seeking a religious state in Egypt to restore the Islamic caliphate and declare the Islamic law. Moreover, they support MB and their candidate and when they felt that Mursy would lose, they demanded the cancellation of the best Egyptian presidential elections ever. ..

After the first round of the Egyptian presidential elections, it was weird that Esam al-Erian, a Muslim Brotherhood leader and vice chairman of Freedom And Justice party, announced that Copts had elected Ahmed Shafik based on sectarian voting. The man doesn't consider Shafik a Muslim as a Coptic sectarian voting should be for a Copt! It seems he was hoping that Copts will vote for MB candidate! MB who has never been honest or reliable since the revolution of January 25. Moreover, its members have issued a lot of controversial announcements that made Copts angry and afraid of both MB and Salafis. ..

Egyptians of all currents anticipated the judgment on Mubarak, his sons, the former interior minister Habib al-Adly, as well as his assistants. Some people expected the judgment to be “not guilty” while others expected him to be sentenced to death. However, we all agreed that June 2nd 2012 will not pass unnoticed. I as well as many have expected the judgment to be postponed until after the presidential elections. ..

While Young people of Egypt were receiving the bullets of policemen in Tahrir Square on January 25, Muslim Brotherhood have received American orders to wait and see what Mubarak was going to do on one hand, and make sure young people could incite the Egyptians as much as they could on the other hand. Two days later, millions of Egyptians had participated in the revolution and hundreds of Egyptians had been already killed, and finally, US ordered MB through their agent in Turkey to participate in the demonstrations. ..

Today, many thoughts are hitting Egypt like huge waves; most of it is destructive while few are of use. It is like a hurricane that hits all over Egypt, and affects the Egyptian personality in a very bad way, and affected ethics, religions, security, politics, media, society, economy… etc. ..

After the Spanish dictator, general Francisco Franco has passed away, Spanish people decided in a historic referendum to restore the royal regime. Now, Spain is one of the free countries that adopts devolution of power. This came after respecting the will of the Spanish people who decide what they do want and what they don't, this is democracy and everyone should respect their choice. People may disagree, debate or accuse each ..

First of all, I want to point out that the title of this article is taken from a famous book by the late father Boulos Basily. I found in this title the best answer to the accusations for the Copts after the first round of the presidential elections in Egypt 2012 and a runoff election will be held between Dr. Mohammed Mursi, the candidate of Freedom and Justice Party, the political arm of Muslim Brotherhood, and Ahemd Shafik, the former prime minister. ..
Adel Gergis | 29 May 2012
January 25 revolution has demanded (bread – freedom – social justice) which are the fair demands of the demonstrators that in order to achieve, they had to topple the former regime. Everyone agreed that democracy is the only way to achieve these goals. Many events happened and we had to choose our president from 13 candidates, but what’s really weird is some ..

This summer comes very hot, and with its heat comes slaughter of girls. This slaughter happens at the end of each month during the summer when girls’ circumcision is performed. I was surprised to read in the newspapers that this was sponsored by one of the Islamic political parties that were established after the revolution. ..

Away from the political talks and elections of Egypt or expectations there today I’ll take you to a short trip to a real life story I witnessed few years ago. As I’m looking all around me since several months started sometime last year around June, when Obama restlessly demanded the approval of a new bill of expenses which brought down the worldwide value of the USA Dollar, then the crisis spread to Europe and I would say the whole world. ..

As the political conflict in Egypt rages, and as the currents of political Islam are fighting to rule Egypt, we should analyze the presidential elections right before it starts. ُIf none of the political Islamic candidates wins the presidential elections, there is a chance that Egypt may witness somehow intense violence and some assassinations as well. This may happen if the religious currents failed to seize the presidential office to achieve its goals. The first goal is to govern Egypt by both force and elections to achieve their agenda as I explained in previous articles...

In Egypt, there is a problem that many people don't even consider, however I believe is the reason behind the sectarian problems in Egypt. this problem relates to not allowing the Copts to play in the national teams of sports, especially soccer which is the most popular game in Egypt. ..
Ezzat Boulos | 22 May 2012
In few days, Egypt will witness its first real presidential elections. Consequently, many people are thinking: Who will be the next president after the revolution that overthrew the former president? A very confusing question, especially as many of us are really dependent. We want the president to think for us, and work for us as well. As we think he knows the best for his people,..

As we are closer and closer to the doom day of elections you might all think I should remain in the spirit of the hour and talk about elections, but seriously when I think of that day, elections, results, fair or unfair elections, is there to be any discrepancies, planned or unplanned results, what is after, a 100 + 1 unanswered questions and a feel lost and empty I do not know what to say!..
