I can't believe another year almost ending 2015, Christmas 25/12 passed or 7/1 will be soon, but in this issue I have a few points to discuss.
First point is that this year once again Christmas was on a FRIDAY and Egyptians by nature always treat visitors -the Muslims- like if they are the owners not just a visitors!
No I’m not drunk or hallucinating, we all know that Tarek Ben Zyad invaded Egypt, and invasion would never allow original owner to become part of the invaders or else there would be no Egypt since long time ago over 7000 years ago! There would BE FRENCE or England II may be Israel or who knows what else, they did not understood that Egyptians are the only nation God blessed!
This legend movie of the sixties has two major similarities with our lives then and now and how it was reshaped. First similarity was the music, 90% if not all local production had MUSIC! By local production I mean movies produced locally -in Egypt- using local funds or resources like director of photography or artists or whatever local resources to produce even Lebanon or Syrian movies! Not just Music but music we all loved and sung and danced on its rhythms, who can forget the bare foot dancer Samia Jamal or the unforgettable love songs of the Lebanon -Origin- Farid El-Atrash who lived and died in Egypt after the run away from their birth land due to political conflicts! Obviously since ever this area was a boiling area that without the BLESSINGS OF GOD would had disappeared!
Well`for the past few weeks I was busy with my unexpected problem with the Turkish Airlines problem like if Turkey is behind all of us to make there lives a misery; Starting with the Russian fighter to Iraq invasion - well I can not find any other nomination for the armed forces in IRAQ WITHOUT THE PERMISSION of the Iraqi authorities but Invasion!
We still see Saudi Arabia backing up Isis in different forms changing face does not mean change of policies, even the so called moderate opposition hide behind the Saudi Arabia invitation for a political resolution whoever the did not forget to announce it clear and nit no resolutions while El-Assad still in power!
Are we discussing solutions here or impose solutions?
When my trip to Manchester was cancelled while in the New Airport as the Turkish Airline check in counter employee were trying to find any information about the Antigua & Barbuda passports I figured out the computer system information was incomplete, my doubts were confirmed later on by the Lufthansa check in counter employee no communications with the old airport server no internet moreover no ups allowed or possible!
At the beginning I was furious about this luck of information but giving it a second thought I start thinking this is a kind of extreme security as I noticed thought I was able to receive mobile phone calls I was unable to call over any of my multiple lines local or overseas and I could see network coverage was full well if not how do I receive calls?
Last week I was supposed to publish my weekly article from Manchester and HELL NO I was still in Egypt making guesses and building up theories how the hell that had happened and whose fault was it. I was almost certain about the simple fact that the new airport had missing information system –and it is true to a certain extend this will be my future article issue- however as facts kept unfolding over the past week I got the full clear truth no illusions in it no theories nothing but facts, so as my first part of last week article was built on theories not facts I was heading as an Information Technologist to a simplified lesson on "How to build an Information System". This will be my future article(s)!
The Facts that prevented my travel on time!
1. I was due to travel to Manchester on Thursday 19 November 2015 around 4am.
2. The carrier was Turkish Airlines that I had traveled with then from Manchester some time on Marsh, they were supposed to fly me to Ankara then back to Manchester.
3. On due time I was by the Turkish Airlines check in counter to collect my boarding pass.
In last week article I predicted this week article will be written somewhere far away from Egypt; I had a scheduled flight to Manchester, whoevex, as we say in our daily prayer:-
The Lord's Prayer
Our father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespassess
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen
The Lord had different will, I have surrendered my life to his hands since I got Psalm 91 sometime ago, but not too long ago, and a flash light in my memory reminded me while reading it for the first time, of instances in my life when the Lord really protected me!
Deep inside me I did not want to Travel!
I was planning to write about tourism in Egypt I had a few Ideas but once again terrorism and their actions imposed a change of plans in my last post from Egypt as I’ll resume my few future articles from other countries.
Before I start I’m undecided may be you could help me make my mind; Some time ago an ISIS executioner of British origin clearly identified by name and origin despite his mask and disguise but his accent clearly identified him, his voice made it clear he was John whatever though he changed his name to Mohamed something!
This is a local Egyptian proverb “From each field a flower” and this is exactly what today’s article would be, not a specific subject but all subjects concerning Egyptians and Egyptian streets, the thoughts of today and yesterday, the 1st president visit to the United Kingdom in 13 years, the Aeroplane accident in Sinai, Old Age people concerns on a minister declaration about due pensions and many more issues but let me start with a vital question to international intelligence that suggests the Aeroplane accident in Sinai was a terrorist attack!
Yes first part of elections is over however set backs all over; We all know the results and somehow we are all disappointed When a business man his main activity is buying old houses, to demolish them and build towers over the same space the old house occupied with apartments for rent or sell in each floor as much apartments as the whole old house, it is a self generating money business why the hell would such a person buy his sit to the parliament buying the voters who decided not to vote for the good of the country nut accepted to sell their concious? Is it to help the country rise again? Where the hell was he when he left his construction site with a mountain of left over construction rubbish?
Last week for exceptional reasons I had to apologize from writing my weekly article as I never before had experienced such a strong stroke of flu. It was not just sneezing or coughing, rise in temperature or fever I just experienced all that adding to it a total drop of appetite and activity I could only sleep! After 3 continuous days of no food no motion no activity just continuous sleep interrupted by sneezing or coughing or both! Then by a miracle all alone was able to leave my bed, stand up and I really felt what God said:-
I feel really embarrassed and never thought of a day I would have to ask my readers –if I do have any followers- to excuse me as I'm unable to write or concentrate on the subject I was planning to write about it and it is so vital as elections are being closer by the minute, just few hours ago our president was speaking about it!
Ernesto "Che" Guevara born on June 14, 1928 died -assassinated- on October 9, 1967; commonly known as el Che or simply Che, was an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, physician, author, guerilla leader, diplomat, and military theorist. A major figure of the Cuban Revolution, his stylized visage has become a ubiquitous counter-cultural symbol of rebellion and global insignia in popular culture. He visited Egypt on 1956 and received by R.I.P. Ex-president Nasser, (documentary video clip about this visit still available on Youtube). As a young medical student, Guevara travelled throughout South America and was radicalised by the poverty, hunger, and disease he witnessed, his burgeoning desire to help overturn what he saw as the capitalist exploitation of Latin America by the United States prompted his involvement in Guatemala's social reforms solidified Guevara's political ideology as Marxist.
I have already said it in previous occasions I’m just a guy like you not having access to top military or political secrets I just an observer like you I read news I think and ask questions no one would answer them I analyse events and write down my views right or wrong the future might answer or we might never find out where the truth lies!
I do have the feeling we are already in a World War Three or WW III over the Syrian crisis. At the beginning of the Syrian and non Syrian immigrants flow to Europe I admired France stance and their desire to solve the Syrian problem once and for all not by just giving asylum to the refugees but stepping into the battle field if necessary and with optimistic hope I saw Germany’s reaction asking all involved parties to step out in a conference to solve this problem then I felt deep deep disappointment when the president of France said it loud and clear he can not allow Bashar El Assad participation in any political discussions since -from his point of view- he is the source of that problem!
When I was 10 years old I stepped my first ever time in to a school; do not judge me so fast, I was a child with special needs, and thanks God, he offered my a couple of parents who provided me those special needs! As a child I had a motion disability having suffered the well known disease (Polio). Who’s fault it was getting the disease in spite I was vaccinated on time, this is not my subject, bottom line is I was not -and still- able to walk like normal people, and once again thanks to my parents attention, I was not left paralysed on a bed till death, but they took upon themselves full responsibility to treat me and provide me with all special needs a paralysed child might need including my education and learning. Because when I was a child like any child my powers were limited add to it my paralysis (90-95% of my muscles were paralysed) I would never be able to walk with or without any walking aids, all walking aids need a lot of personal powers like the power to stand on your own -or artificial legs- using walking sticks still needs lot of power in your arms to support your body, and even with the necessary power you still need lots of training to become stronger, and again I say to R.I.P. My Mother thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the troubles you had being my trainer, my therapist on top of your duties as a mother of 3 children and a house wife. This does no mean that R.I.P my father did not help or remained idle, enough the financial and physical troubles he had taking me as a less than 2 years old paralysed child to Paris to get some real Medical attention when Egyptian doctors failed to provide true attention due to ignorance or incompetent!
The time does not wait for any one it is going on and on the earth keeps turning around the sun and our solar system and so on, time does not wait on us because we are sad or happy it would not even wait for us because we are not part of this living world but our acts will hunt us in history until we meet our final judgement by the most just judge!
For the past few days I’ve been following two main Issues, first was the refugees of Syria and other countries to Europe with a main demand [Better Chances of LIFE] and this by no means mean they are threatened in their lives due to Daesh -ISIS- massacres, many of those refugees come from African Countries far away from Daesh atrocities, they are just looking for a better life, including some of the Syrian refugees who left Syria from governorates not under attack but chances of work and life are too little if none in a country that suffers for years now from instability due to the Arab Spring, or conspiracies or what so ever reasons!
It is not the main reason of this article to talk about the famous Zero of Mariem Malak that obviously it was meant by the Muslim Brotherhood or better the Devil Brotherhood to create a sectarian conflict and disturbance that the blessed people of Egypt once again passed the opportunity for it!
Time never waits we run after it, time and time again we had to accomplish things because time would not wait for us!
Suez Canal a living example it was an ambiguous project that Egyptians united behind their army and leader had to run to overcome time! They did accomplish a three year project in just one year! It is clear when Egyptians are challenged and they did accept the challenge nothing can stop them!
Time and time again since Pharaohs times the ascended of Pharaohs proved their tough challenging skills, times and times again their land was occupied as occupants thought or got the illusion that the secret of success lies in the magic of that land not the personal skills of its owners! However, those owners with passion and love for the land did free it from those occupants to live free!
This is not a choice! I Believe in God not on the president, queen, king or the minister!
With all due respects to any royal family or political entity of any country I always said it as a jock or an inner real feeling ME AND POLITICS DO NOT MIX!
True, I lived in several countries and as a citizen in those countries you name them France, England or UK, USA, Antigua & Barbuda, Egypt, in each and every of those countries times had come to see elections, all kind of elections, and all kind of electorate propaganda! Yes propaganda that on the long or short run leads to nothing just like what had happened in Greece that caused its current financial crisis that is threatening not just Greece but the whole of Europe; Greek politicians for a sit in the government gave promises that to execute them without proper study used borrowed funds to give jobs, and social advantages overseeing how the hell he will provide funds to pay back his dues to the borrowers!
An other Day another time I have to ask people who many times A person is born or dies?
Weird question I had to ask it to weak up people who want to impose their own will over God’s will!
Yesterday Saturday 15th of August 2015 in many parts of the world is the celebration day of Saint Mary Jesus Mother that was honoured even in Islam! Some true Egyptians being Muslims will not stop them from honouring St. Mary and fast her fasting days moreover some of them would fast from 1st of August until 22nd of August -three whole weeks and it is not a must for them or their religion!
Unfortunately I can not speak or write my world this to the general public in Egypt the child that can not read yet, but can listen and understand words, not to drop the child with special needs, or the man and woman that can listen and understand they can even write and read, but not many languages! I just wished to speak to Egyptians regardless of his position the people we meet every day in the streets and say hello to them without knowing them or knowing you they would just return your hello moreover, who is far away and can not hear your hello they see you waving and wave back to you, this every day person we meet, man or woman grown up or child regardless of who is rich or poor, philosopher or ignorant, inventor or just an accountant and by the way I wish in the near future with the unlimited science capabilities an electronic device to be invented not only to translate from any language to any language but to be able to read it in the language of your choice moreover to demonstrate it in any way for people with special needs!
