The Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) ruled the Electoral Districts Law unconstitutional, resulting in the postponement of parliamentary elections until the questioned law is amended.
The court refused other appeals on the law defining political rights issued ahead of the presidential elections last May, and the law organizing the establishment of the parliament. The Electoral Districts Law was issued by President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi last December, and includes two sections. Each divides the country into electoral constituencies, according to the two voting systems available: the closed list and the individual list.
As we read the current activities and events in Egypt and the region, we can deduce there are great plans by president Abdul Fattah al-Sisi.
It was such a great present by the Russian President Vladimir Putin who gave the Egyptian president a Kalashnikov as a sign of willing to cooperate with Egypt and hold military, strategic and political partnership. Such partnership was put into action after the visit of Egypt’s foreign minister to Russia and the visit of the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of Moscow hours later. Indeed, such partnership has annoyed the hateful American Administration.
Over the past few days I noticed a new wave of RUMOURS as rumours become more and more frequent and obvious lies that Egyptians become aware and make jokes round them!
This new wave of rumours is based on a true well known event –a lawyer arrested in a demonstration without permit- well known fact! This lawyer thought his immunity as a lawyer gives him the right to be impolite and curse police officers and irritating them with his behaviours an officer –human being not God- responded to that violently and the lawyer dies! Human error requires investigation and accountability but what was published states:
President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has given a nice speech last Sunday. Yet, I hope he will commit to his speech and don’t be late like he promised to appoint the new governors no later than the end of January, which was fulfilled in February. The speech showed what we know about the president who is well known for being calm and organized.
His speech came to deny certain information that I knew they were not true. The speech was directed in a nice way that we are not used to with speeches of the president.
He denied the leaks by gestures, when he should have talked about them clearly. Yet, his work in the intelligence agency made his character this way.
The Massacare that happened to the 21 Martyrs in Lybia assures us of the double standard of the West towards us.
I vivadly recall when "ISIS" killed the american man. The US decided the very next day to go in a war against ISIS. The UN, and the West supported what the US had done, however, when Egypt did the same thing, the UN did not support them. Now, the UN and the US believe a political solution is necessary. The question is, why didn't they believe in using a political solution for Syria?
The West might be developed in regards to their industry, but I believe that the West is still developing in morally. The West is lost on the compass of human rights. When 12 French men were killed in France after 3 terrorists attaked the newspaper during a meeting, the whole West came to France to announce their soldirity with them. I believe what they did was a good action, but the question is why hasn't the West called for the same action when the Coptics were killed?
Egyptian citizens should be proud for the Egyptian air strike against the terrorists in Libya. Egyptian pilots carried out suicide missions willing to sacrifice their lives for their country. Their air strikes were unlike other air strikes by American air force that provided ISIS with weapons instead of destroying them. This comes at the time the British army orders the soldiers to kill themselves before they fall in the hands of ISIS. I pray to God to save our great soldiers.
Nobody can deny the great role of the commander Sedki Sobhi who leads the Egyptian armed forces at such critical moment. Even the United States hasn't moved to protect or even to avenge the death its
How can the parliamentary elections held under the current circumstances in Egypt? Some people support the postponement of the elections, while others think it’s a pure scandal to do so. Yet, we should think about what benefits our country Egypt after she was hardly rescued from the traitors who apply foreign agenda to destroy Egypt and the region.
Church of the Virgin in Awr mourned the martyrdom of her sons. It's congregation remembered that St. Mark came from Libya carrying the gospel and now Egypt has to present her children as martyrs in Libya. 21 sons of Abba Bfnotious, Bishop of Samalout, were killed in Libya to return the days of martyrdom and to revive their homeland and church by their blood.
In my last article published on Monday 16th February 2015 while writing it late Saturday early Sunday the 21 ISIS hostages were –surpassingly- still alive, but I had the feeling they were dead or will die not because I have ultra natural powers and I can see the future, but just from previous experiences with ISIS hostages from the American, then British, Jordan and Japanese hostages that were merciless executed while still negotiating their release; the worst was the Jordanian pilot that the King himself went to the States in an attempted to exchange him with convicted terrorists in Jordanian Jails, but he was burnt alive way ahead of those negotiations!
When you think about all the suffering that the Copts are going through right now, I can't help but remember the times of Jesus.
Right now, we can't even imagine barbaric acts of killing. I look at the most recent tragedy, the beheading of the 21 Copts. I say to myself, "How could anybody in their right mind do such a terrible, unfathomable act?" And that's just it. These killers are not in their right mind. It has been said time after time how these people must be brainwashed. These criminals must not be right in the head.
My friends do understand that I only support right and only speak the truth. I have always supported this principle that I paid huge price for my situation and lived away from my homeland as if expatriate. This important introduction aims to remind you that the writer has not flattered the regime and never gave up the blood of the martyrs. However, I write this article after I saw the slaughter of my brothers in Libya as well as the great reaction taken by the Egyptian government.
I have to say that I do support my country and its armed forces against terrorism. Moreover, I ask all Coptic activists not to hold any activities to express their anger. Egypt currently is in bad need to our unity and our support.
I neither like watching funerals of Egyptian martyrs nor watching their families mourning. However, the situation this time was even worse with the absence of the bodies and the lack of even symbolic coffins since the bodies couldn’t be returned to Egypt. The Mediterranean Sea is a sea connected to the Atlantic Ocean surrounded by the Mediterranean region and almost completely enclosed by land: on the north by Southern Europe and Anatolia, on the south by North Africa, and on the east by the Levant. In Modern Arabic, it is known as al-Baḥr al-Abyaḍ al-Mutawassiṭ translated the White Middle Sea. Thus, this attack transformed the white sea into red, and the red hearts of their families into black.
Last Sunday, Egypt received the extremely bad news of killing 21 Egyptians who were working to reconstruct Libya. The killers decided to sow dissension among the Egyptians by killing those Christian Egyptians. Soon, the Egyptian president appears in TV offering his sincere condolences to families of the victims and promising to avenge their blood. 8 hours later, army carried out an air strike against the terrorists who killed our children.
After ISIS had released a video showing the beheading of the Copts that were kidnapped in Libya, many people denounced the brutality of the extremist group. However, it should be known that the Coptic Church has presented too many martyrs across the history.
Coptic years are counted from AD 284, the year Diocletian became Roman Emperor, whose reign was marked by tortures and mass executions of Christians, especially in Egypt. Hence, the Coptic year is identified by the abbreviation A.M. (for Anno Martyrum or "Year of the Martyrs"). The A.M. abbreviation is also used for the unrelated Jewish year (Anno Mundi).
Terrorism is commonly defined as violent acts (or threat of violent acts) intended to create fear (terror).
Once again the events in Egypt does not allow to me plan in advance my article; I’m still where I was 3 weeks ago in my study on Terrorism in history, I need to know when and where was the first terror act, but recent terrorism acts around Egypt attract my attention.
Today attentions are directed towards Libya events! ISIS that is abbreviation on “Islamic State Iraq Syria” is in Libya should we call them then ISISL? News spread of Libyan army taking over control in places then few days later we hear the terrorists took over control in other places, and who is suffering in the middle Egyptians of all kinds! Poor Egyptian people on the borders are being attacked, taxi drivers can not operate as usual, deliveries transportation tangled not to talk of people who in the hunt of their daily bread had to leave their families and homes and were either killed or kidnapped just for being Egyptian, and among them the Christian Egyptians are the best prey and reward, they are to be executed! Last week contradictory news of 21 Christian Egy
It is no secret that everyday a new tragedy happens. We hear about this heartbreaking news over and over again. We have a nice dinner, and it's ruined with tragic news. We go out to a movie, and feel like we've lost our desire to have fun because of the situation we are in now. It seems all hope and joy is everyday destroyed by news of innocent people dying, or crazy psychos killing. When will this end? The problem is, realistically, the answer seems like "never."
Because of the hopelessness of the above question, I am pushed to wonder, should we seek outside help for our current situation? Ok, now listen. The first thing we think about is how the US destroyed Iraq when they intervened. We must remember that the US had ulterior motives, they wanted that oil that Iraq had. Also, don't forget that, yes we pretty much hate the West, but there are so many other countries out there with the resources, and perhaps new ideas to rid us of our dilemma.
His name is Brett Evans, a coworker of mine. He was full of happiness and worrying as well. I asked him, what’s wrong? He showed me a photo of a dog that he has just received as a present, and said I’m just worried about being responsible of such living creature. This was about his dog.
Now, we understand that human beings are responsible before the law, and if they do something against the law, they are usually prosecuted. Yet, people are sometimes killed for small mistakes, even before they are prosecuted.
After the execution of the Jordanian pilot by ISIS, the Jordanian authorities responded by the execution of two terrorists Sajida Rashawy and Ziad Karbouli. This made the Egyptian public opinion wonder: Why many terrorists have not been yet executed in Egypt including the terrorist Habara who confessed he had killed Egyptian soldiers in Arish massacre in Sinai? Does the authorities wait for a new deal with the Muslim Brotherhood on the Sadat-style in 1972, which led to the return of the Brotherhood to attack leftist and Nazarenes. Later, the constitution was amended to state that Islam is the religion of the state, which gave the Islamists the constitutional legitimacy.
As we experience a difficult time in Egypt with many conspiracies aiming to destroy the Egyptian army that became a savior, not only for Egypt, but also for the gulf countries. Additionally, the Egyptian armed forces stand as an obstacle before the implementation of the Zionist plans to divide and destroy the Islamic and Arab countries for the benefit of Israel.
We have watched the most horrific video by ISIS burning POW Jordanian Pilot Muath Al-Kassasbeh. Soon, many reactions came out and many people were affected by it. However, all of us may forget about the most abominable thing seen by many people.
The history of terrorism is a history of well-known and historically significant individuals, entities, and incidents associated, whether rightly or wrongly, with terrorism. Scholars agree that terrorism is a disputed term, and very few of those labelled terrorists describe themselves as such. It is common for opponents in a violent conflict to describe the other side as terrorists or as practicing terrorism.
