Jabal Al-Halal: the old stronghold of terrorism

I have numerous memories that date back to the end of the 1990s in Jabal Al-Halal, located 60 kilometres south of Al-Arish. We visited the mountain a few days ago after the elimination of terrorists who used to take shelter in it until mid-February. It was named “Halal” because of the camels and sheep that …

A visit to the Egyptian heroes, victims of terrorism

I tried hard to evade a commitment that I consider a national duty towards the armed forces’ victims who have lost parts of their bodies or will remain physically disabled for the rest of their lives. I felt that all words of sympathy and gratitude will not be a valuable reward for their sacrifices to …

Youth: a compass for democratic change

In the time of the Muslim Brotherhood, I met with one of their leaders, who was the secretary general of the Pharmacists Syndicate in one of the governorates adjacent to the capital. I asked him about the reasons for their aggression against the media and the disputes with the judiciary, the police, and the army …

Tiran Sanafir Egypt Saudi Arabia

Without further discussion, Tiran and Sanafir are Egyptian

State Council judges have penned a new line in the honour of the Egyptian judicial record. One of the council’s judges said the decisively final word in the conflict between the Egyptian government and a major segment of the community on the sovereignty of the Tiran and Sanafir islands. Supporters and opponents shared different opinions …

The illusion of subsidising—Part II

I have many friends who once belonged to the middle class. They did not need state subsidies because they were able to live and afford education, healthcare, transportation, etc. for their children. However, the government’s decisions came against the wish of the people. Those friends turned from belonging to a “saving” class into classes that …

The illusion of subsidising

I belong to a generation that used to do well with a monthly allowance of EGP 3 in the 1980s during the first years of preparatory school. Once I enrolled in university, this allowance reached EGP 30, and it was enough for us to enjoy life. This generation had not imagined it would witness a …

Closing borders is inhumane and contradicts German values: SPD member

The head of Germany’s social democratic party (SPD) headquarters in Berlin, Dennis Buchner, ruled out that opening the German border for refugees could be a long-term electoral manoeuvre by chancellor Angela Merkel and the ruling party. He refuted reports that alleged Germany was receiving an increasingly larger amount of refugees, but stressed Germany should not …

Trials and tribulations of the Right of Asylum

Everything about the life of an asylum seeker has two sides. The dreams that refugees may have of a Promised Land can shape their destiny, making them indignant or satisfied. If they are looking for safety and the right to a better life, then they would be grateful towards Germany, its renowned bureaucracy and the …

Regeni, Tiran and the idiotic regime

I have no idea how President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi will justify his government’s unacceptable management of the country’s crises during his expected speech on Wednesday. I hope the regime is not betting on the public’s short memory span; our memory may seem to easily float from an issue to another, but this occurs only in …

The five noes

I strongly reject the way the government rules the country. I refuse to see all officials belittle the minds of the Egyptians and cover up for their mistakes by directing attention towards the wrong things. They refuse to strain the military and burden it with all infrastructure projects. We even call them to solve our …
