President al-Sisi does not mind to accept the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters in the political life in case they renounce violence. Many Coptic activists warned al-Sisi that supporting the Islamists may lead to his death just like former president Sadat did.
In fact, Sadat was assassinated for the peace treaty with Israel, but the Islamists nowadays are willing to kill whoever supports a state. That’s why they kill police officers and soldiers, and spread chaos everywhere.
Can you believe that there are still protests going on against Sisi? Can you imagine waking up every morning thinking, “Today is the day I will go to protest.”? Well, for some people, specifically the Muslim Brotherhood, this is what they think every day since Sisi was elected President of Egypt.The problem with Egypt is that the citizens are too passionate about their religion, too involved in their politics, too busy criticizing the negatives and ignoring the positives. In a democracy, when there is an election that ends unfavourably for you, you say, “Oh well.” And wait until the next election and perhaps your party will have better luck.
In his visit to Canada, Pope Tawadros offered the Coptic Christians in Canada to celebrate Christmas on December 25 instead of January 7. Yet, it was more surprising that many Copts have totally refused the idea.
Until the 16 century, the Copts celebrated Christmas on December 25, which corresponded to 29 Kiahk in the Coptic calendar. However, with the amendment to the Gregorian calendar, the date changed to January 7.
It was surprising that the Pope offers such proposal, but the congregation refused to separate themselves from the mother church. It’s but a start of big change.
Al-Ahram state journal published news about 35 Copts arrested for demonstrating against kidnapping a Coptic woman. The great newspaper misspelled the news saying that they are from Assiut instead of Minya. However, nobody cared for them.Those poor Copts were trying to defend their honor, which was violated by one of the terrorists who kidnapped Coptic women from her husband and four children. Those Copts expected better treatment from the state after they sacrificed their lives, churches and properties for their country during and after the revolution of June 30.
The era of the Muslim Brotherhood is considered the worst in the Egyptian history. The terrorist group was ready to offer everything, even the home country, in order to establish the Islamic Caliphate.
The terrorist group has no values or nationality that it betrayed the homeland and killed Egyptian soldiers and policemen in many terrorist attacks.
However, there is another dangerous element in Egypt, which is the National Democratic Party (NDP). Leaders of the NDP have disappeared under the Muslim Brotherhood after they spoiled Egypt for 30 years full of corruption, poverty, forgery and unemployment.
Some time two, three or more years ago, I wrote in article of the day an overview of the world “Copt” and how the Greek name of Egypt –Εγηπτως pronounced Egyptos- and Egyptian –Εγηπτιως pronounced Egyptios- it developed from the non Greek speaking people you pronounce words as you hear them so it became Copt meaning Egyptian! Note the origin is Latin, in English –Latin origin- name is exactly Egypt same spelling different pronunciation! Moreover in another Latin origin language French it is still Egypt!
Ah the "West." The Western point of view on anything is as follows: if you are going to say something which offends someone, it is politically incorrect, and therefore should not be said. For the longest time, the negative stigma associated with condemning radical extremists was palpable. If you said anything against someone's religion, it was seen as this politically incorrect, discriminatory, offensive act. Everyone is entitled to his or her belief, and we should give them their freedom to express themselves. Believe in Allah? Sure. Vegetarian? Your choice. Chain smoker? If you want. It's like everyone walking on eggshells. "Don't say something that might offend someone" During the tragedy of 9/11 nobody even dared to speak negatively against Muslims. This unfortunate day was a terrorist attack. Who are the terrorists? Just extremists, not Muslim, not Christian, not Buddhist, just extremists. It seems that we have allowed so much wrong to happen in the world, that we are scrambling to fix ourselves before more tragedy happens. John Kerry was recently speaking with Sisi in order to build this strong coalition against ISIS, and to absolutely destroy this Islamic State.
“Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name.” This was the prayer of Jesus Christ at the night of his crucifixion. He was apparently praying for the Christian unity.
Many people managed to despise the Egyptian law in order to impose their own ideas and conditions on the Egyptian society. For example, supporters of some political activists described the Egyptian Judiciary as unfair demanding the president to issue a presidential pardon for them. Yet, the same people refused the issuance of a presidential pardon for the Muslim Brotherhood under the former president Mohamed Morsy. I wonder: have they forgotten about their former positions and views?
Who can trust that the United States cares for Egypt and her future? In fact, America has sent its American citizens of Egyptian origin to surround the president in the form of a presidential advisory board.
Egyptian media showed a famous video clip of Egyptian women dancing for the new democracy and to express their happiness for overthrowing the Muslim Brotherhood from power in Egypt.
Furthermore, the Egyptian movies showed great belly dancer Tahia Carioca who participated in the Cannes Film Festival in France. Other dancers like Samia Gamal, Nagwa Fouad and Zizi Mustafa have impressed and entertained us in their movies.
In last week’s article I said:
Thanks God I trust the Egyptian Army and above all the wisdom and smartness of their leadership, -I’ll come back to this point later. Well now is the time!
Let me first start with a simple fact that is I was exempted from military service so I never really been in the army so I never really lived within solders or seen real army, but I’ve seen like any young person lots of military movies; I know movies is a mixture of reality with imagination but with experience and long life reading facts using your brains properly you can always see reality from imagination and extract facts!
First of all I know for sure as a fact I learned over time, not all intelligence officers are totally loyal to their countries, lots of spies were initially intelligent officers in some other country but without loyalty and on the first opportunity they turned their back to their own countries.
Do you think that the worst thing that can happen to us is death? Look at Egypt and all the destroyed families and churches. Muslims pushing Christians out of their homes, kidnapping people asking for unimaginable ransoms, abducting children and forcing them into an arranged marriage. When you think about all of this, do you wonder if that’s the worst that can happen?
Many of us still remember the child Omar, hawker who was killed in the attacks of US Embassy at the time of the Muslim Brotherhood. Everybody was talking then about the poor child who lost his life after a life full of deprivation.
Many people traded on his story. Others have traded on children from Mekkah Mokaramah orphanage. This usually lasts for limited time before everybody forgets about those children.
Management science is one of the most important sciences applied in developed countries. However, in Egypt it’s a bit different as we don’t care about management science in our lives or even large institutions.
Public employment has always been a dream for many Egyptians long years ago. Those employees care much about their rest rather than their work. In the work, they just talk and never get punished for their many mistakes. When they are about to receive some punishment, they only have to ask for the director's compassion for the sake of his children!
I'm depressed, sad, unsuccessful and desperate. These are common words that send a very dangerous message to our minds every single day causing even more sadness and pain. This may lead to depression or committing suicide.
I’m worried about the American waves that hit the Egyptian shore these days. America has sent a delegation most of which are from African origins. Then, they released Apache helicopters and sent many American military leaders. Soon, many American agents appeared in media, research centers and businessmen.
Let aside hospitals and the problems that rise to a kidney patient under cleaning device to revive his essentials kidney function then power goes off not knowing even to which level the cleaning reached, what about someone got locked inside the lift? Old style houses and lifts where setup in an open area if it happens the life malfunctioned you could just open the door and if between two levels just jump, or clime down or up nowadays if lucky enough to be able to manually open the door –most doors now function electronically so not a chance to open the door- you will find a wall unless you were lucky and the lift stopped close enough to a level you can crawl out of the lift! I recall the famous Egyptian movie its world by world tile translation was: - Between Sky and Earth...
How can there be that many extremists? Furthermore, according to the “moderate” Muslims, how can there be that many people misunderstanding the Quran? I honestly think it is the other way around. I believe that the fundamentalists in Islam are understanding their teachings correctly, and the Allah they believe in is teaching them to kill all the unbelievers. The Muslims who are condemning the these acts of terror, I believe, are not understanding their teachings correctly.
Security of the Arab region is indeed part of the US National Security, and the threat of terrorism does not affect Egypt alone, but threatens Europe and America as well. Therefore, America has not supported Egypt for no good reason, but gave it the
Apaches in order to keep such security giving the wars in Syria Iraq, and Libya.
Though it's a positive move by the united states, but it can't be the only reason to build trust between the two countries with many political issues after the revolution of June 30.
Coptic identity has been annoying the authorities in Egypt. Therefore, since the Islamic invasion to Egypt, it tried hard to completely eliminate the Coptic language, culture, history and religion if possible. On the other hand, the Copts resorted to a defensive mechanism for peaceful co-existence by using common names for their children and words that they can live in peace without being persecuted by the Muslim majority.
