Regeni, Tiran and the idiotic regime

I have no idea how President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi will justify his government’s unacceptable management of the country’s crises during his expected speech on Wednesday. I hope the regime is not betting on the public’s short memory span; our memory may seem to easily float from an issue to another, but this occurs only in …

The five noes

I strongly reject the way the government rules the country. I refuse to see all officials belittle the minds of the Egyptians and cover up for their mistakes by directing attention towards the wrong things. They refuse to strain the military and burden it with all infrastructure projects. We even call them to solve our …

They are fooling you, Mr President

Mr President, I would like to know who thinks with you. Who takes decisions without consulting with you? Who is causing your reputation to decline? Who is responsible for the continuous wasting of the looming opportunities? Mr President, do not believe those whispering to you, saying that your elite can convince the people with what …

The People have lost trust in the political sphere

The story of each year begins again on Monday. The state mobilises all forces to deal with those who dare and try to commemorate the January revolution. The … is preparing to commemorate the anniversary and the forces of … is preparing to ignite the revolution again. Other powers are trying to prove that the revolution was …

To those who rule Egypt

What did the rulers of Egypt want after the land became theirs and they owned everything? Their grip has returned and their influence is bigger than it ever was before January 2011. What do they want now after they posed themselves as the necessary choice? They succeeded and took the reins again. The state now …

When nobles partner with enemies of the state

Intentions lie in the heart or the mind; they cannot be detected until after the consequences of actions resulting from those intentions. Before reaching the results, we cannot distinguish between nobles and enemies; they all ride the wave until it arrives at the shore of objectives, which vary according to loyalty to the country. Nobles …

Blaming Arabs

Who created terrorism? Who used jihadists and fed them with hatred towards humanity? Who lit the fire that will burn everything and everybody? Who is driving us into a third world war? Is this the new Middle East that American political books talked about? Did weapons’ prices fall that much to awaken the devils and …

Hope is in the stubbornness and rebellion of the people

Egyptian tourism has never been in a more difficult position than it is now, even in the most difficult situations when bombs blew up Sharm El-Sheikh shaking the Sinai Peninsula. An international coalition is now standing against it. Britain violated all international norms and protocols and announced strict measures to evacuate its nationals from Sharm …

Now I have the right to worry about Egypt

Time stopped when President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi gave his speech a few days ago at the educational ceremony on the occasion of the 42nd anniversary of the 6th of October War. I did not know what to do or say, when I heard statements that have nothing to do with the dreams and aspirations he …

What the Egyptian public wants

The Egyptian public has been subjected to the largest act of blackmail and deception carried out by the media apparatus in the country’s history. The game began with the post-revolutionary slogans about the military, the Muslim Brotherhood, and remnants of the old regime, only to end with pornography from local channels that have no other …

Parliamentary elections test

The voting on the third merit of the roadmap of 30 June has started, the step that President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi announced when he was then-minister of defence. He took the side of those who went out to the streets to object former president Mohamed Morsi’s rule. The media is taking the authority’s side, out …

Egypt deserves better than to be toyed with

We were all glad that Mehleb’s government had stepped down, but our happiness had nothing to do with the man, whom we respect, and his appreciated efforts during a tough period and before he became Prime Minster, at a time when any sane person would have refused such a post. It has nothing to do …

Get angry, but don’t deny the motherland

We are the people. We have a right to object and accept. We are the ones who never settle for any less for their motherland. We waited and waited for the motherland to live with pride. We are most entitled to have every official kneel before us, asking for our satisfaction and acceptance. We will not turn …

Egyptian opportunism, Iranian gains

Few will disagree with my opinion on the improved performance of Egyptian foreign policy over the past two years. I do not think that the positive development in Egyptian foreign relations is a coincidence, but rather the result of accumulated relations between representatives of the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and representatives of states concerned about …

On the verge of a new war

The poor, Mr. President, have waited a long for someone to perceive them with sympathy, and to pull them up above the poverty line, so are you up for this?

The parliament and the Egyptian elite

I have never officially belonged to any political current. I never held a membership card for any political party, or even an NGO. I was, and still am, proud of being a journalist standing at an equal distance from all currents; I admire the behaviour of some and reject the behaviour of others. I was, …

I was a terrorist in the making

Short are the moments when you can review the details of your life. In these short moments, you see many details. It was during one such moment that I realised that I went through many changes that few people have been through. I grew up in a labour environment, in the iron and steel city …

Terrorism by law

Why does the state insist on repeating history and losing the same old battles it has lost before, and will continue to lose so long as its aim is to suppress freedom? History does not repeat itself except in an undeveloped country and a run-down society. Despite everything we’ve gone through, we have a youth that …
