We, as Egyptians have recently witnessed a life-changing event in front of our eyes. This past Christmas the Copts had the honor of receiving Sisi in the Cathedral for midnight mass. Sisi is the first ever president to visit the cathedral to celebrate with the Copts a religious event. He came in gracefully and greeted the Pope with respect and was honored by what he saw.
Giza governor announced at the end of the year 2014 that exams can be scheduled on January 1st in order to lend more seriousness for the New Year. He indeed was wishing to arrest all traitors who celebrate at that night headed by Mr. Santa Claus, the American agent.
I have to agree with him that there is a great conspiracy against our nation led by America and Santa Claus that started centuries ago when we followed that stupid plan of celebrating the new year!
These are the same guys the Western governments have hosted, pampered and financed, now coming back to haunt them. These are the great "believers of democracy" killing to intimidate those who criticize them or differ with them.
They are all the offspring of the Moslem Brotherhood, a world fascist, terrorist organization that openly states that it will only rest when the whole world has been forced into submission to their ideas and distorted beliefs.
In the plans of the West, the Moslem Brothers were to inherit the Middle East. So when Egyptians revolted against them in June of 2013, they called this popular revolt a coup and accused Egypt of human rights abuses.
Journalists and anchors are used to host some astrologers and astronomers at the end of the year to foretell about the new year. Yet, many people are interested in such programs including myself, but I don’t know the reason! Maybe it’s our way to relieve our worry and fear for the new year.
I couldn't expect to find so many agents who carry the Egyptian citizenship, but have no loyalty to their homeland.
Many journalists and news reporters decided to join this ugly team. For instance, El Bawaba News has chosen a shocking and disappointing headline that raises fear in everybody who reads it. It expresses extreme anger and dissatisfaction at the year 2014, as well as extreme fear at the new year 2015.
However, I believe that 2014 was a great year for the Egyptians as they decided to overthrow the Muslim Brotherhood and restore their country back.
Am I the only one who is disgusted with what is happening in Libya right now? I just watched the most heartbreaking video of the two girls whose family was murdered in Libya. The priest kept asking, "where is your parents" and the little girls kept responding with, "in heaven" How heartbreaking is that?
Once again, Muslim fundamentalists are behind violent and dirty acts against the people around them. You think it was a coincidence that more Copts were just recently kidnapped? Here is my problem: Islam is a religion of violen
Father Sergius the rebel was born in Gerga in 1882, and then he moved to Cairo in his youth to study at the theological school at Mahmasha where he organized his very first demonstration against the bad conditions of the dorms. He graduated in 1903.
He was ordained a priest in Mallawy one year later and then became the deputy of Assiut diocese. Later, he traveled to the Sudan and worked as the deputy of Khartoum diocese where he started the national struggle against the British colonization and issued “St. Mark's Episcopate Lighthouse" magazine. The English ruler ordered his deportation from the Sudan after spending three years there considering him a troublemaker.
A lock is a part of a canal or river that is closed off by gates so that the water level can be raised or lowered to move boats up or down a slope. It can lower the water lever and prevent watering the planets on that river. There was a famous movie about a woman called Fouada who was a farmer. The mayor Atris was a dictator who decided to close the lock and prevent farmers from watering their planets. Fouada decided to resist and say No! Thus, she opened the lock and overcame this dictator.
Five years have passed since the departure of Mr. Adly Abadir. As time passes, we make sure we lost such patriot Coptic activist. All Coptic activists know his contribution to the cause was great. In fact, he is the only Coptic activist who sacrificed that much of his time and money for the Coptic cause. He founded and financed Copts United electronic newspaper to express the voices of Copts all over the world.
Today I write my last article for 2014 and who knows may be my very last one in this life, so before it is too late let me wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year; I know many of you Egyptians have the habit to wish a Happy New Year prior to wishing a Merry Christmas as this in Egypt used to be on the 7th of January meaning New Year comes first!
I would like to point out my appreciation for our President, Sisi. This may sound a little idealistic, and not reality, but I honestly believe that for the past year and a half, Sisi has made leaps and bounds in comparison to what Egypt was like during the reign of Morsi.
We have had nothing but terrorism and protests every week. I mentioned in a previous article, that all we hear about is who was killed in Sinai, and how many protestors died in the violence in which they created.
Take care of Zozo was the movie I watched when I was ten years old. The actress was a belly dancer who used to perform with indecent clothes. However, her mother asked her to wear robe in order to meet a guest who came to visit her.
I asked my father why she should put a rope on if she's used to perform with much less clothes on. His answer showed me his open mind unlike the current generation. He told me that her house is different from the stage. She, as a belly dancer, doesn't have to be indecent in her life.
Customary reconciliation sessions in Egypt succeeded to make fake peace between the Coptic Christians and the Islamists. The Copts are usually wronged and criminals are saved from punishment. Such sessions force the victims to give up their rights and despise the law.
I don’t like exaggeration concerning the visit of the president to China. Yet, it’s an important visit, but not historical as many people claim. Ousted president Morsy has also visited China.
China is a major economic player in the world, and we are in bad need to its support and investments. This comes as we can’t depend on America or Russia. We have to get the support of countries like China and India.
If the Egyptian government really seeks development, progress and reform, it should first treat all Egyptian citizens equally. It should benefit from all Egyptian people of experience no matter what their religions are.
As the fight still on, people keep working, hoping and fighting, but the opposing guys still try to break their will, they still try to make others see the half empty cup not the portion that we, all Egyptians, try to feel!
Yes, they still fantasize Egypt is run by a military entity which will impose any thing and every thing, not the will of the people who went restlessly every where every time they were ask to go out express their will, on 30th June they revolted, on 26th of July they authorised the army to fight back terrorists, the went out to elect whom they finally trusted to lead the country out of the dark black tunnel Morsy took us into it.
In 1862,Victor Hugo wrote his novel "the miserable", which represents the French society after the ouster of Nabolion when corruption and injustice spread.
One of the characters mentioned in the novel is Jan Valgan who was sent to jail for stealing a loaf of bread to eat.
Valgan was sentenced to five years in prison, which was extended to 19 for
Several attempts to escape.
In the last accident that happened to the Copt who was killed with his family and their little kid in Libya by a terrorist group refers to the chaos that Libya lives in and also refers to how much the Christians are a target to all terrorist groups everywhere. However, the terrorist groups not only target Christians all over the world but anyone who is different.
We do live in the city of madness. We would that many countries may disappear on the map, but we will thank God that we are not among them. We do watch Syria, Libya and Iraq and thank God we are not suffering a civil war like them thinking we’re just fine.In our mad country, a nine years old child was sent to a social care house as punishment for stealing 5 loaves of bread to eat. We don’t care about the child as long as he was tried according to the law on charges of stealing.
I was watching CBC private TV, which is owned by an Egyptian Mohammed Amin (former sanitary merchant). Suddenly I found a man who decided to spread his pessimism and despair. The anchor was only entitled to ask him the previously agreed questions and let him do his job.He started by talking about Fourth-generation warfare (4GW) that is conflict characterized by a blurring of the lines between war and politics, combatants and civilians. The term was first used in 1989 by a team of United States analysts to describe warfare's return to a decentralized form. In terms of generational modern warfare, the fourth generation signifies the nation states' loss of their near-monopoly on combat forces, returning to modes of conflict common in pre-modern times. The simplest definition includes any war in which one of the major participants is not a state but rather a violent non-state actor. Classical examples, such as the slave uprising under Spartacus, predate the modern concept of warfare and are examples of this type of conflict.
I won’t talk today about details of the dispersal of Rabaa Adawia sit-in, as it has been searched on the both local and global levels. The Egyptian fact-finding committee and international human rights organizations agreed that Egyptian police did a good job in dealing with the armed sit-in.
Revenge attacks on Muslim places of worship have begun in France following yesterday's massacre at the office of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris.
