When he was chosen as pope, Abba Tawadros promised to repair the house from inside and to stay away from politics. However, after one year, he has fulfilled none of these two promises. Nothing has been fixed in the house and politics are mixed with pastoral care.
Today I talk Greek, does not mean my loyalty to Egypt is altered neither my loyalty to Greece had ever been affected with my Egyptian loyalty. Bi-ethnical people is hard to explain but I can say it is as difficult as asking you to make a choice and love your father more or your mother!
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.
Many people believe that atheism is a new phenomenon to Egypt. Well, this is not true. Writer Ismael Adham wrote an article entitled: “Why I am an atheist?” which was published in Egypt in the early twentieth century. Yet, the old phenomenon has strongly appeared in Egypt with the increasing amount of freedom after the revolution of January 25.
Crimes are so different from mistakes as they are not easily forgotten and must be given account for. However, if you belong to supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, you may not notice such big difference between what have been done by Gen. Abdul Fatah al-Sisi and Dr. Mohamed Morsy.
The terrorist group of the Muslim Brotherhood is waging a war of attrition against the Egyptian state in two ways. First, it moves its supporters to protest in vital places causing massive traffic jam. Additionally, they use huge financial support to reserve their presence in the streets hoping that ousted president Mohamed Morsy will come back as leader of their imaginary so-called Islamic caliphate.
Winds of change came upon Egypt after the revolution of 30 June, 2013. Some changes were positive while the others were negative. Yet, it was strong enough to force Superpowers to change its policies in the Middle East.
Unfortunately, this revolution brought people like Mohamed El Baradie, Hazem El Beblawy and others to the scene. Soon, the ugly faces of the traitors were revealed. The government failed to achieve any progress in the economy and worked hard to implement the American agenda to destroy Egypt and return the Muslim Brotherhood to the political scene in Egypt.
Back to home after a long trip to my Homeland, it is really a hard choice between family residing away and the country you’ve grown up in it and it is your homeland.
Due to travelling and settling back in new environment and other hustles only frequent travellers like me know them well, I’m not very up to date neither my computer that took most my efforts in the last few days to update, the very last of the news I had was Kerry
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.
Last Monday, on November 4th, was an honorable day for Egypt and its people, police and judges. This came as they did their best in order to return Egypt bak to the Egyptian people after it was lost for about three years.
Egypt came back against the will of many arabic and foreign countries and their intelligence agencies, which tried to prevent the trials of leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood by the court of law.
The most dangerous thing in the Egyptian political scene is the division within “Rebel” movement, which reached mutual accusations of corruption and receiving funds from foreign countries. Such divisions comes in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood and makes them very happy as they see the movement that overthrew them collapsing. However, such unexpected success for the movement made many politicians hasten to join the movement after they refused to in the beginning.
Egypt now faces a great strife by the Muslim Brotherhood, the group that's doing its best to sabotage this country and destroy it by all means.
However supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood claim to support president Morsy, they knew nothing about him before the revolution of January 25. In fact, he was but a reserve presidential candidate for the strong man, Khairat al-Shater, vice president of the MB. I mean those supporters only support the group and never supported Mohamed Morsy personally.
First let me congratulate Egypt and Egyptians with the 4th of November the Egyptian Cupid worldwide Cupid the Love God is celebrated with on the 14th of February but in Egypt thanks to R.I.P. The Amin Twins -Ali and Mostapha Amin- Brothers and twins who introduced and improved most of today's journalism principal and created a journalism university called -Akhbar El Yom- or the world translation News of the Day!
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.
For the first time after the revolution of June 30, the famous satirist Bassef Youssef have presented his program, al-Bernameg. The first episode of its new season provoked many lovers of General Abdul Fattah al-Sisi.
I was surprised upon reading the article of Mr. Suleiman Goda published in Al-Masry Alyoum newspaper on October 22 under the title “Eat Your Heart Out” in which he said that the Copts have proved once again their loyalty and love for the nation after Warraq terrorist attack. However, he said that the Coptic Christians have proved to be much closer to “the spirit of Islam”!
Nothing would return the little girl, Mariam, back after she left the earth to live in heaven. In order to see Mariam, I had to rewind the videotape over and over to see her standing at St. Mary Church in Warraq in her new white dress before terrorists turn it red. She was pure and happy as an eight-years-old child should be. Suddenly, two bearded terrorists appear shooting and killing her innocence. They may belong to the Muslim Brotherhood or any of its supporters who hate this country and worship blood and violence.
It's understood that the Islamists became so angry because the military intervened to remove president Mohamed Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood from power. Such intervention suddenly destroyed their dreams, which lasted for more than 80 years, to govern Egypt. Additionally, I understand that the anarchists as well as the revolutionary socialists supported Morsy hoping he will eliminate the state institutions including the army and police and put an end to their power or authority.
Now let me introduce you to one of the most famous dictators Augusto Pinochet who ruled Chilie 1973-1990!
He seized power upon a military coup d'etas killing or leading to the death of the legitimate president Salvador Allende -R.I.P.- of clear social tendencies in the period of the cold war USA-USSR or capitalism vise socialism! Salvador Allende -R.I.P.- was a clear obvious threat to the USA policies and Augusto Pinochet with or without USA consent put an end to this threat and protected USA objectives! In his coup d'etas, upon the period of 1973-1990 his strong -army protected- dictatorship regim caused 3,000 deaths and more then 27,000 arrested, tortured, or fled the country seeking political assilum!
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.
