Any one has dreams in his life and seek to achieve these dreams year by year and that what not apply for Egyptian. Some of them lose their life searching to immigrate and wait years and years seeking to immigrate until they lose their age searching for illusion called western life.
Lately, all we've been hearing about are the murders, the violence, and the destruction of the civilization in Egypt. Families are struggling to remain optimistic in a country they will never let go of or give up on, which in my opinion, is completely mistaken.
Although that may not make sense, I would like to discuss the impact the current events, and current outlooks have for our future. If you were to ask any Egyptian, "Which country is the best in the world?" everyone would answer, "Egypt." This answer can be explained for 1 of 2 reasons. The first reason being, they are unbelievably wealthy, who have servants to work for them night and day. The second being, they are too proud and deluded to recognize the truth.
It seems as though, Sabahi, a hopeful candidate for the presidential election, is trying to repeat the same agenda and use the same tone as the ex-president Abd Al Naser. I agree that Sabahi and many other candidates should run for the presidential election so we can have a fair and democratic election, but candidates have to have new trends and new thoughts.
Everyday we see blood. One time from the police, another time from the Muslim Brotherhood, and the question we should ask ourselves is: how long will continue to see blood on the streets without finding a way or solution to stop this?
All political powers have attacked Dr. Hassan Nafaa the activist, when he announced an initiative attempt at a reconciliation between the Muslim Brotherhood and the rest of the society. I could understand the people's objection to this initiative, but at the same time, if you object something, you should suggest something as an alternative.
In the time we are close to the presidential election all political power call for fair election and that need the media to be fair with all candidates, the governmental TV should deal with all candidates without being biased to one on another.
Fair election shouldn’t neglect the importance of the transparency in spending the money during the campaign, without this transparency the election process will turn to be an acting process, we have to put into our consideration that the whole world will supervise the presidential election as the main step to go forward in the road map.
People go to the movies to enjoy a good night out. They buy some popcorn, candy, and turn their cell phones off in preparation for the show.
It seems as though “Egypt: The Country” should be nominated for an Academy Award. Everyday it’s like we have something new happening in the courthouse. There is always some new drama going on, something crazy happens, and then some crazy reaction takes place.
We can see again that Saad El Deen Ibrahim wants to play in the same role he played 7 years ago with the Muslim Brotherhood. It was the time when he was trying to convince American Administration that the Muslim Brotherhood is the only alternative after Mubarak and they can shoulder the responsibility after the Mubarak regime.
Right from the beginning we have witnessed a man who is blunt, brave, and to the point. I remember where I was when Sisi made his notorious announcement that ultimately led to the ousting of Morsi, do you?
When I see the situation of the Christians in the Middle East, I can’t prevent myself from blaming the United States. Since the US decided to go to war against Iraq and then leave it to Al-Qaida, this led to the evacuation of the Christians and not only that, but also killing them as the first step to eradicate Christianity from the middle east.
In the coming days we will have Elena Dzamashvili perform at the Cairo Opera House.
It is often said that music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent. Troubled children are often placed into music programs to give them an outlet they can focus on and relieve their stress. Violinists are said to live shorter lives than anyone else because of the connection their heart makes to the music they produce. What is it about music that makes people calm, and brings peace to a situation?
A recent documentary was released titled, “The Square.” It is a highly acclaimed documentary supported exclusively on the American “Netflix” streaming website. It is even in fact nominated for an Oscar, which will be on March 2nd, 2014.
It is safe to approximate that Egypt’s labour force is split into three categories. We have about thirty-one percent working in agriculture, seventeen percent in industrial work, and fifty-two percent in the service industry.
I can understand how many challenges face Egypt now. I can see just how much the religious groups threaten Egypt and the community. I can understand the need for a strong person to be in power and rule Egypt.
What I can’t understand is that none of the political parties in the Egyptian community were able to introduce this person until the moment. These political parties were blaming Mubarak before, saying that he is the reason of failure. They were also always accusing Mubarak's regime of not giving them the opportunity to work in the street to gain supporters.
After the referendum, the question we should ask now is what’s next? I mean what is the next step we should follow? The result of the referendum was modest in my opinion. About 36% of the people that has the right to vote participated.
Lately, I can assurdley say that all people want the Defence Minister Al Sisi to be the next president. All political powers also push him to run for the presidential elections as the only way to solve Egypt’s problem.
I read a lot of campaigns everyday that call for supporting the constitution from all demographics in society. As it is right for people to support the constitution, it is also right for people to vote against it. If we prevented people from expressing their opinion frankly, it means we may fall back into the fascist regime.
In a few days we will be in the new year and in the Eastern Orthodox Christmas. In this new year we should keep our hope for a better life. Throughout all the difficulties that faced Egyptians all over the world, Jesus gave us hope with His birth. He gave us hope not only for a better life, but also for the eternal life.
Egypt is facing now a very severe enemy. Enemy which is hard to see and hard to deal with it. Egypt Now is facing a real terrorism. Egypt is facing also a new kind of terrorism. It didn’t witness it long time ago. There is no doubt that many foreign countries are interfering in Egypt now. There are many countries and groups supporting the militant groups in Sinai and many other districts in Egypt.
There is a great debate nowadays about what should come first, the Parliamentary elections or the Presidential elections. Some believe that the Presidential elections should come first because that will help the country have stability and move forward. But the problem with that suggestion that it is against the road map settled on the 30th of June, which planned the parliament elections to come first.
I have recently read most of the articles in the constitution. I cannot deny that there are many good articles in the constitution, especially that refer to the rights of women and minorities. Also, there are many articles included for the fist time that refer to the Martyrs of the Church in the constitution.
Responsibility is not just a word but it is an action. What has happened to the Copts lately in MInya shows how much the Police and the Government are carless for everything that has happened to the Copts. Up until now, 50 houses have been burned, two have been killed and many have been injured. The Police have left the situation for 2 days without any actions. What does it mean? Does it mean that the Police want to interfere only after Copts have died?
