Christmas always brings joy and happiness. However we've never imagined it may being such pain, We know that Christ Himself said: “Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. (John 16:20-21)
Yesterday, I received a researcher at the American University in Cairo who is specialized in political sociology. She interviewed me, as an Editor-In-Chief of the biggest electronic newspapers interested in the Coptic issue. She asked many questions about the social conditions in Egypt after the revolution of January 25, 2011, especially concerning the Coptic minority. I admit she was well-informed about the Coptic issue more than most journalists interested in the same issue.
Mohammed Gohar, journalist and Chairman of the Board of Directors at Cairo Sat, was honored by St. Paul charity in Montreal for protecting Father Metias Nasr as well as 16 Coptic Christians from the attacks of the military police post Maspero massacre in October 2011.
Inspired by the great article of El Gammal Great but will Obama listen?? I doubt it I would love to send as well an open letter to the WORLD not just Obama as it seems to me the Obama administration had been occupied by Muslim Brotherhood or its supporters starting with the personal secretary of Mrs. Clinton a Muslim Sisterhood member and many more. I do understand in this free civilised world equal chances are given to people regardless of their colour, ethnicity or religion (which unfortunately is not the case in Egypt) and some MB or its supporters could infiltrate in the administration of any country that is of no threat at that moment but as time passes it becomes an obvious WORLD SPRING not just ARAB SPRING as Mrs Clinton said.
A word of honor, I miss this awesome expression very much nowadays, and throughout our daily life in Egypt. It's no longer respected by many people including the government or the presidency.
Whatever happened at each religious feast, I used to feel so happy. This wasn't because of nice food or new clothes, but rather the hope in a better life that comes with a new feast.
It’s Sunday again and I have to write but like most if not all Egyptians I feel empty depressed and no desire to talk it is the solitude I usually hide in it when nothing around me works.
While working as an engineer in Switzerland, I met with a French colleague who was raised in Algeria
Punishment and reward are critical in order to correct the behavior of human beings. Furthermore, the environment and natural laws have to be respected; otherwise we’re going to suffer a lot.
Some opponents of MB rule think that the collapse of the Egyptian economy, and state bankruptcy is at hand, which will cause unprecedented chaos and famines all over Egypt. They think that this will lead millions of both angry and hungry people to revolt against the Islamists as well as destroy their headquarters and businesses. However, I myself consider this totally faraway. I think that such chaos and bankruptcy will work in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood, serve their political and economic interests, and enable them to take complete control of Egypt.
I’m not an economist but I had some basic training upon my studies in economy and I’ll try to explain how things work in normal life.
Gold reserve one calls national gold reserves, which stand usually in the area of responsibility of a central bank or a Treasury. The purpose of national gold reserves existed in former times mostly in the covering of currencies (gold standard). Today gold is predominantly kept as national reserve for crisis periods. The state can deny e.g. unexpected extra charges by sales of the gold, and secure itself thereby thus against disasters.
Throughout the Egyptian history, there were great Coptic Christians in Egypt who participated in its civilization, culture as well as various sciences, leaving a significant impact in all fields. This list of great Copts includes Ibn al-Muqaffa', Philip Galad, General Fouad Aziz Ghali, Eng. Baki Youssef Zaki, Pope Cyril V, Pope Shenouda III, Synnott Pasha Hanna, Fakhri Abdelnour, Makram Ebeid Pasha, Fekry Makram Ebeid, Professor Mourad Wahba, Dr. Naguib Pasha Mahfouz, Dr. Magdy Yacoub, Dr. Roshdy Said, Father Dawod Potros, Mina Daniel..etc.
What's happening in Egypt now leads us to an inevitable civil war for many reasons including the horrible Constitution, about which Sheikh Borhamy said that it will allow the Islamists to raise lawsuits against anyone and for any reason they believe is insulting Islam, as well as to form an official group of "The Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice". This civil war is inevitable for many reasons including attacking judge Al-Zend by MB and their Palestinian supporters of Gaza who caused calamity to the Egyptian people since 1948. A civil war is at hand as the Egyptian people are already divided and will continue to be. A honorable terrorist announced that Egypt will be divided into faithful and non-faithful governorates. Addition, al-Qaeda has announced that Egypt will be declared an Islamic emirate soon!
Last Sunday, I went early to the church to attend an engagement party for a Christian couple who has decided to celebrate this very special occasion with God at His church. My clothes were pretty much nice and modest fits the sanctity of the place.
Wahhabi Islamists knew that the independent judiciary will be a stumbling block before achieving their dreams of seizing Egypt and changing its identity by establishing a theocratic state. Therefore, destroying the independent judiciary was a top priority in the agenda of President Mohamed Morsy and his group, even before he officially took office.
I’m not predicting the future nor a prophet inspired by God and see the future but I read events and expect things to happen accordingly all my expectations in my last week article [Vote or Boycott] came true and new illegal constitution is about to be implemented regardless of people choice as it was faked once more so the Morsy would start believing he has the majority support; may be he really believes he has it or may be who fakes results and alters voters desires never told him he is doing that who knows but this is not my subject or the day as I have more important things to say and talk about!
As the Egyptians have suffered from the Ottoman rulers and their repression and injustice, they used to gather to pray for God’s reprisals against the Ottoman rulers!
Federal Criminal Court in Switzerland has decided today not to grant Egypt the right to inspect Mubarak's funds, which are estimated at 700 million Swiss francs despite the former approval of the Swiss Public Prosecution.
A gang called the Muslim Brotherhood has been exposed along with its allies. Their filthy goals, means, and ideology in which they trade on religion nonstop were exposed as well. They have become just like a rat that caught fire and became very scared that it spread the fire everywhere.
Egypt now is at a loss politically. This serious shortage of political experience led the presidency to many random decisions that are just undone later
In the past few days a lot was said about this unconstitutional new constitution the people of Egypt are supposed to vote on it today! My article will be published after results are announced or mostly known but I still have to say what I'll say...
