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.
I found out that my love to my country, Egypt, is more of worship and my belonging to Egypt deserves to be a religion for all Egyptians
As religions encourage people to be civilized and love all people. Yet, other religions divide people to believers and infidels. Egypt can only develop when it unite its people. Those who don’t believe in certain religion are deprived of their rights as believers or even humans. Yet, the Egyptian religion doesn’t differentiate between people based on richness, location, color, gender or even religion. People are allowed to choose their own religion freely, but without losing loyalty to his country.
"Good Morning neighbor, leave me alone" is one of the most provoking Egyptian idioms to me. I believe it has nothing to do with our very Egyptian culture that has never limited the relationship between neighbors to shaking one's head without even a smile! In the past, neighbors used to cook together. When one goes to shopping, the other took care of children. They lived together as one family. In crises, they used to share food together. The mothers used to serve a sick mother and her family until she recovers.
For the 1st time since 1979 when I left Egypt I write an article feeling really I am in a country, I do not know how to explain my decision to leave Egypt, at the time I felt really down and saw Egypt in its worst place since I was born – worst place comparing with fifties and sixties; but times sowed my way worst that that! I was brutally striped from my position in the academic staff of Cairo University, reason declared health problems, undeclared religious issues; but the problem was I would not be able to resume my higher studies, Master and Ph. D. If I was not a staff member due to lack of qualified academic personnel, so they were available to only staff members; the other reason of seeing future in Egypt so dark, sectarian violence that since Nasser –R.I.P.- died I start seeing it a lot! And the worst night mare was that new Wahabi imported tradition of veiled spreading so fast!
America wants Egypt to fail by any means. There were two actions America did which clarify my point exactly. The first is when the speaker of Foreign Affairs claimed that Egypt and the Emirates participated in strikes against Libya. The second is when Human Rights Watch intentionally put wrong information related to what happened in “Rab’a”.
On August 14, Rabaa Adawia sit-in was dispersed. This name reminds us of threatens, kidnap, kill, torture and terrorization. The yellow logo with four fingers hand became so popular around the world.
However this place was named after Rabaa Adawia mosque in Nasr City, Cairo, we forgot about Rabaa Adawia, the Sufi ascetic monk who lived in Basra and introduced the idea of the Divine love in Islamic mysticism.
“Build churches in Egypt, or any Muslim country, is permissible unless it had bad effect on the national security” said Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, sheikh of Al-Azhar. I know that there are many other sheikhs who stand by such opinion. However, I tell them that building churches has nothing to do with you, as it belongs to Christians who don’t need you to permit them to build their houses of worship or prevent!This matter should be organized only by the law, as all Egyptians should have equal right of worship. The countries should be called by its religion no more. God gave freedom for all people to worship him. How much more should it be with states!
President Obama says that Daash in Iraq is a cancer that must be removed. This is apparently true, but why does he refuse them in Iraq, and welcome them in Syria? America has not hit them until they approached the Kurdistan region of Iraq. Yet, you left them to do whatever they want in Syria.
In the midst of many disputes in Egypt, a lot of Egyptians have forgotten about the most intense phase and the most dangerous stage experienced by our country with many conspiracies aiming to divide and destroy the Egyptian state and the Egyptian institutions.
Such conspiracies have increased with the increasing sense of patriotism and belonging to Egypt that removed the Muslim Brotherhood from power.
For several hours, ex-minister of interior e.i police, secret service, national security in collaboration with the ministry of defence and secret services; I re-iterate that for several hours ex-minister of interior defended himself towards accusations he’s been in trail for 3 years so far, what attracted my attention was he spent this time telling secrets day by day of the events of January 25, 2011 revolution or what was named revolution. I’m not going to talk about this revolution or not, but the facts that are being slowly unfolded.
As I was saying last week, Sisi has the monumental task of building Egypt up without any solid ground, without any frame, without the knowledge of concrete. There is nobody to guide him in the right direction. On the contrary all he has are people opposing him, people causing destruction, nature causing strain. Any smart person who wants to build a house, or build a country, would realize that he doesn’t know the steps involved, and have to hire professionals. Of course, these professionals need to be sincere and honest, and not corrupt. That is a whole different story.
It is indisputable that Christians are indigenous citizens in Iraq. Their existence in this country is prehistorically and they embraced Christianity since its very beginning as well. This is verified with tons of historical monuments museums and documents in Iraq.They do not lack the efficiency in all areas: scientific, medical, literary, artistic, media, academic, and political. As for their role in Iraq's modern history is explicit. They participated in all progressive movements and shared the most injustices and oppression by the government as well as the terrorist organizations. Such oppression has reached the peak by the terrorist organization of Daash.
How may the people of Egypt, especially Christians, trust the President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, after he broke his promise to rebuild the burned and demolished churches by the Muslim Brotherhood after the dispersal of Rabaa Adawia and Nahda sit-ins, but fulfilled his promise restore Rabaa mosque.
Dr. Tawfik Okasha has chosen the wrong time to break the national unity in Egypt. He decided to join Dr. Abdul Rahim Ali in his incomprehensible campaign against the Coptic Christian businessman Naguib Sawiris. However, Sawiris had donated millions of Egyptian pounds to Okasha and his private television. Moreover, Okasha launched his campaign against all Christians in Egypt ignoring their important role in saving Egypt from many foreign plots during the revolution of June 30.
I have a friend who lives near Rabaa Adawia Square where the sit-in of the Muslim Brotherhood was held. His name is Eng. Hatem Fouda. He told me that the dispersal of Rabaa Adawia was violent indeed. He added that there were many other ways to disperse it peacefully like prevent other people and food from entering the sit-in. We could have cut off power and water..etc. This way we could have avoided many bad reports of human rights organizations that the Muslim Brotherhood has been trading on ever since. Also, we could have avoided many losses among the security forces as well. This is how my friend thinks.
Grace always has work that exceeds the humans’ perception.
