Nobody can deny that Egypt has seen disaster after disaster since 2011. Yes, the environment under the Mubarak regime was oppressive, and people were stripped of their basic civil liberties. But even so, there was no societal instability. The Muslim Brotherhood was banished, the streets were safe, the economy was going. Ever since the 2011 revolution, Egypt has been lost, struggling to find it’s way back to peace. Just like any other tragedy that strikes, Egypt was left devastated without a leader, without a stable frame, and without direction. What was left for Egypt so? We were left with anger, aggression, religious fanatics, and violence.
Last week’s article had exactly same title added to it “The” that is it was The Trial of the Century; I focused on two things which were:
1. False Accusations of police brutality and killing people upon the 25th January demands.
2. My own testimony confirming what Habib El Adly said about the false accusations was true.
As on Wednesday 16th August 2014 the hearings of that trial ended with a memorial last speech -probably- from former president Mubarak that ignited lots of reactions I deem it necessary to answer some questions or remarks about it.
Former president Mubarak was on trial from over 3 years accused of Killing people of Egypt in riot, using his powers for illegal earnings and wasting national income selling Gas to Israel under priced!
So far, in the Egyptian criminal law there is no crime called “Corrupting Political Life” or any similar wording accusation or crime to be tried for!
The Yazidi is a Kurdish-speaking ethnoreligious group who practice a syncretic religion that combines Shi'i and Sufi Islam with indigenous regional folk traditions. These traditions include elements shared with the Christian and Mandaean communities of the Near East, as well as with more ancient Gnostic, Marcionite, Zoroastrian and early Mesopotamian religions.
The existence of the ultra conservative al-Nour Party on the Egyptian political arena till now, in spite of the disband of the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, Freedom and Justice Party, refers to the continuation of the Saudi plans to humiliate Christian Egypt through many terrorist groups.
In the past few days, I experienced two different situations concerning relationship between America and Egypt. First, an Egyptian writer visited America asking the Coptic Diaspora in America and Europe to make some pressure on their governments to help the Egyptian economy. Later, another Egyptian writer wrote an article to complain about American insult to Egypt, describing it as impudent insult.
The Egyptian armed forces surprised the whole world by introducing the marvelous project to dig a new watercourse of the Suez Canal. The old one was opened in November 16, 1869 in a legendary celebration in the presence of the architect of French colonialism, Ferdinand Delesibs, and Khedive Ismail. Yet, the new heroes of the new project are the Egyptian armed forces and the brave and Egyptian leader President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
Countries across the world are watching as each of the Arab countries try their shot with “democracy.” We have been in a revolution since 2011, and, in my opinion, we are not progressing at all. Yes, I understand changing a whole country takes time, years, years and years. In the past 3 years however, we are in the exact same state, if not worse, than where we started.
For several hours, ex-minister of interior e.i police, secret service, national security in collaboration with the ministry of defence and secret services; I re-iterate that for several hours ex-minister of interior defended himself towards accusations he’s been in trail for 3 years so far, what attracted my attention was he spent this time telling secrets day by day of the events of January 25, 2011 revolution or what was named revolution. I’m not going to talk about this revolution or not, but the facts that are being slowly unfolded.
Daash terrorist organization vows to target Egypt soon by the slaughter of Egyptian people. The announcement did not specify the target, but considered the way of killing as slaughter. This shows us that their favorite bloody way of killing.
Of course, Daash knows that it's the most brutal organization among its counterparts in the region, and I believe is very happy for that.
It’s known that Egyptian people prefer to pay alms and donations during the holy month of Ramadan. This is the season of sweets, banquets, TV series and donation advertisement in Egypt.
Since the beginning of the holy month, we have been watching more than 20 charity organizations and hospitals. All of them are asking the viewers to donate for them as they are in bad need for such donations. However, those ads cost millions of Pounds that should have been paid for the needy.
The vast majority of Coptic internet users in Egypt rose up against the decision of Anba Bishoy, Bishop of Damietta and Kafr El-Sheikh, who ordered women to wear decent clothing and to avoid using makeup when attending church to partake of the communion.
In the beginning, I refused the decision like many people did. However, I changed my mind after thinking for a while. First, the language of the decision doesn’t have any form of contempt or disdain for women, but it reminds them
In a memorable day in the modern history of Egypt, Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi took the oath of office on Saturday to become Egypt's first freely elected President and its first head of state.
"I swear by the Almighty God to sincerely preserve the republican order and to respect the constitution and law, and completely care for the people's interest" is the oath of office taken by all senior officials of the state.
First I owe you all an apology I interrupted my series of History to wish Egyptians and the rest of the world a happy feast at the end of the holly month Ramadan it is a Muslim occasion and I’m not Muslim, but we are all Egyptians and most important HUMANS!
As a human I share sorrows and happiness with humans happy for their happiness and upset for their miseries this is how I interpret human rights!
I had a message to sent to my co-citizens and the rest of the world but due to lots of obstacles on top of them power problems - and no power = no internet therefore I can not even send my semi finished article- therefore I just got the time to send two words wishing people a happy feast!
The foreign spokesman for the United States claimed that Egypt used American military aid to suppress the demonstrators. Once again, the United States wants portray the same tone it had used for Iraq, Syria and Libya. The United States wants to destroy the Egyptian army, or at least that’s what it seems like. In my opinion, America is acting in such a way that makes me feel as though they doesn’t want any strong army presence in the Middle East.
If great speeches and much talk really count, the Arab nation would have been the most powerful all over the world. Unfortunately, we talk much, but work less. Our thinking has deteriorated and our minds are far from open.
There are groups of intellectual Tatars invading our minds trading on Islam. However, we surrender to them and support them. Those groups are clearly groups of political Islam.
I’ve never misunderstood a person or entity as I did with the United States of America, which I considered until the revolution of June 30 a glorious patron of principles, values, human rights, justice and equality in the world. Thus, I used to consider her my second homeland after Egypt.However, after the revolution of June 30, America revealed its face to appear as the Great Satan and the official sponsor of terrorism in the world. It proved to be a country with no principles or values. It tries really hard to restore the terrorist group of the Muslim Brotherhood to rule Egypt ignoring its violence and more than 60 churches and hundreds of governmental agencies, police departments and private property after the dispersal of Rabaa Adawia and Nahda sit-ins.
I sincerely wish to congratulate the Muslims on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, but I can’t celebrate and be glad when thousands of Egyptian homes have widows and orphans and thousands of wounded. Furthermore, Egypt’s economy has been suffering for years.
No doubt that what Daash is doing in Iraq and Syria are acts of hateful sectarianism and terrorism. Yet, they should be taken as example of what similar organizations may do in other countries.
It’s known that they aim to restore the Islamic caliphate, but they should realize the costs of the wars now are completely different from the wars 1400 years ago. In the past, they only used swords and spears, and ate what they found in the way. But now the weapons are so expensive, and the richest countries can’t afford the cost of the wars for long.
Additionally, the general mobilization of armies costs billions of dollars just to afford food and drink. Moreover, and the nature of the wars currently makes the industrialized countries of the weapon are getting the real booty, but the warriors themselves do not get anything.
This article will be available on May 26th. The first day of presidential election most likely will read it afar you had voted or boycotted presidential elections but there would be a second chance the following day the very LAST DAY!
I’m not writing this to tell you what to do or advise you to vote for a specific candidate this is against all human laws of freedom of opinion, freedom of choice, and above all your own personal freedom, however I see it necessary to tell Boycotters a few facts before too late.
I understand, a lot of today’s youth and young people have never seen true happiness or enjoyed a really happy moment, all their miseries made them loose faith in everything and everyone and bottom line they will trust no candidate to alter their miseries into happiness so they decided to BOYCOT!
Everyday the situation becomes clear that the plan is to evacuate the Middle East from Christians. in 2003 and also after eleventh of September 2001, the ex-president George Bush delcared war against Iraq and said that this war will be the key to democracy in the Middle East. And at this time, I wrote many articles against the war in Iraq, where I witnessed many writers supporting this war.
Mosul is a historical city located in northern Iraq and dates back to nearly six centuries before Christ. It received Islam in 637. About 25.000 Christians lived in Mosul before most of them were displaced during the last few years.
Christians in Iraq have suffered from persecution from time to time, but Daash decided to displace them or put an end to their lives.
For the first time in its history, now the city has no Christians as they fled to neighboring cities such as Hook and Erbil, the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. They left behind the ancient churches and their dear homes and properties.
