Lately all nation are talking about the demonstrations law. Some of them are with and some are against. Some people think that this law will help the country to calm down and go forward and some others think the opposite, they think that this law will let Egypt back to be police country.
Egypt is facing a fatal danger again. This time, however, it is with a very dangerous group, some even multi-national terrorists. We all remember what Egypt went through in1990 when terrorists attacked and killed students, politicians, and intellectuals. After 5 years of battling this terrorism, Egypt could finally be victorious over the war. Now terrorism returns more fatal and severe than ever. Christians are being killed in churches, soldiers in Sinai, police members in assassinations, and various types of death are sweeping the country. Bombs are used, as well as explosions, gunshots, and any other means to kill innocent people who are just trying to protect their country.
The mystery of the Constitution that we live in nowadays is ridiculous. I have many reservations about this Constitution. First, there is no clear information about what’s going on inside the Fifty Committee. Second, I can feel that there are many differences between its members. Third, there are many difficulties we will expect to face when voting comes, as well as there is no campaign to spread the awareness among the nation.
The latest statement from the CBC channel to not broadcast the last episode of the program, "Albernameg" by Basem Youssef is a very dangerous sign to how the opinions and expressions of freedom will be handled in the future. How could this happen after the 30th of June? Does it means we have returned backwards and not forwards? I believe that no progress can happen for any country as long as it is being prevented of expressing opinions. Especially if they are still committed to the main values of society.
Sometimes you find yourself unable to express what to say, especially if the situation you face is incredibly difficult, and is the equivalent to losing one of your sons and having the other one in the hospital in intensive care and in a critical situation.
I can understand that Egypt needs to calm down after a long time of demonstrations, and strikes that has been present from the past two years. At the same time, however, we can't use this reason to kill the right of demonstrating.
I am speaking mainly about the last demonstration law issued by the Government. We put a lot of restrictions to practice the rights of demonstrating. One of these restrictions in this law is that no demonstrations in front of governmental or
The last announcement from America to cut aid is something we have to pay attention to. I don’t believe that aid can change any person from one stage to another stage. Suppose you are giving a person your charity, do you think this charity could help him achieve his dreams in having what he wants? On the contrary, this charity provided will cause the person to be more lazy and not work as good as he would have, because he relies on this aid.
While I was going to give my condolences to one of my relatives who died at the hands of thieves stealing his jewelry, on my way I passed by land used for agriculture, and was surprised that all the land turned into places for buildings instead of farms and plants. This land was used before to cultivate different plants like wheat, whey, corn, and many other plants. Now, I saw only buildings where fertile land stood.
Muslims Brotherhood lately was trying to spoil everything in the country, Schools, Universities, Airports, and Streets. What Muslim Brotherhood aim to. I believe that it aims to nothing except chaos.
Muslim Brotherhood since 30th June and until now adopts principle to be in the scene or burn everything in the country.
Finally after 2 months of the June 30th Revolution, Obama has announced that Morsy was governing Egypt in the wrong way. After just 2 months passed by, Obama gave up in return of the Egyptians' will, although all the pressures were practiced by America and their allies. Obama would never reach this conclusion without being sure with his administration that there was no way to keep supporting terrorism in Egypt.
Can you imagine that while you are talking to your friend he is recording the conversation that happened between you two? Not only that but furthermore, he sends the conversation to the newspaper and the newspaper publishes it for the public to see?
It all began in December 1955 when Rosa Parks, an African American woman who was riding a crowded bus refused to give up her seat to a white passenger. The bus driver summoned the police. Parks was arrested and charged with violation of the segregation law of Montgomery City.
There can be no doubt that a large gap exists between how Egyptians see their 30 June Revolution and how the West, and many others in the world for that matter, see it. While Egyptians see it as a mass public endeavour to restore democracy, the West sees it as a deed against democratic values.
There is no doubt that we are now living in a huge conspiracy that is currently led by the United States, and all other Western Countries. They want Egypt to be like Syria, Iraq, and Libya. This has been the project and goal of the States for a long time: converting all countries into one whole big “Middle East.”
The situation in Egypt as of now is quite dire, and furthermore, there is a huge rift amongst Canadian Egyptians as well. There is a rift between Pro-Morsi supporters and an unidentifiable opposition.
To the average Joe, even “Western Media” the Army is seen as a coup, where we are back to square one as a dictatorship. The opposing members are seen as “Pro-coup” which is completely wrong. Here’s the facts you need to know in order to understand the reality of the situation, and how wrong Western Media is portraying the whole ordeal.
There is no doubt that we now live in big chaos. Islamic groups are burning the churches, killing the innocent people, destroying shops, and swearing to do more and continue to burn all of Egypt just because of Morsi.
Let's think in the following way: suppose that the 3 of July was a coup, does that mean the whole country deserves to be burned? Because of Dr. Morsi and the Chair of Presidency? Does that mean more than 20 churches deserve to be burned and Copts murdered for no reason?
As pressure mounts in Egypt, and protests are not ceasing, we have to take a closer look at the role this political divide is playing in the lives of the Copts living through this.
As we know, 10% of the population is Christian, which means we are gravely outnumbered. Now this would be all fine if we weren’t the first to be targeted when hardships plague the country. Threats of burning churches, setting fire to people, and suicide bombing for maximum destruction are all examples of what Pro-Morsi protestors are preaching.
After the Revolution on the 25th of January, all Egyptians accused Mubarak’s regime for the persecution of the Copts, especially of Al-Quddisen Church in Alexandria. We figured out, however, that during the Revolution, there were many sectarian events going on. A church was destroyed by Muslims, and another one burned by Muslims too. We then figured out that the only possible reason was the ex-regime, and also the culture of hatred that exists in this community.
In the coming few days, even months, we will be facing a huge challenge. This challenge is not confronting the Islamic Current, but confronting terrorism. These terrorists will not hesitate to do anything including bombing, killing, or even assassination in return getting back the ruling power. Here is a question: did a terrorist group govern us? Do Egyptians trust terrorists to rule Egypt, and if so why and how did we allow that to happen?
I have lately noticed a lot of unclear and confusing news coming from the States. I believe that because a big country like the States couldn’t come to a decision about what has happened in Egypt, America failed to understand what’s going on. If we looked at the foreign policy of America in the last 10 years, we would find a lot of mistakes in those polices. Starting from Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and ending with Egypt.
After the June 30th revolution, or, the third wave of January 25 if you will, succeeded in achieving it’s goal to oust ex-President Morsi we have to ask ourselves an important question: do we have to include the Islamic Current or can we just dismiss them from the political process?
