UN insistence on Palestinian acquiescence

Ban Ki-Moon"The international community cannot be expected to continually pick up the pieces of another war and then pick up the bill." Uttered by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon during the Security Council Briefing on the Middle East, the comment is a reflection of the constant impunity generated by imperialism.

The spy state

Dr Amira Abo el-FetouhThe great state of Egypt has become a country of spies ever since resolutions were issued encouraging students to spy on their fellow students and report them to the security services for merely opposing the regime. Such spying has been justified under the pretext of nationalism, and these students are described as being patriotic. The state has stripped those opposed to the government of their patriotism; giving the label only to its informants and spies. A journalist affiliated with the Mubarak regime and of course to the government loyal to Mubarak, Al-Sisi's government, said that every citizen is required to become an informant.
