  • Al-Sisi's trinity

    The energy-saving bicycle and light bulb, as well as dividing loaves of bread into four parts is the solution to all of Egypt’s incurable economic problems according to the leader of the brutal coup. This is his programme which he will implement once authority is handed over to him....

  • Inauguration Day

    In an epic scene that is reminiscent of an Ancient Greek myth, the leader of the violent and bloody coup is being appointed emperor of Egypt amid a celebratory environment similar to the Roman celebrations. The leader of the coup wanted to prove, to himself first and then to...

  • The day that Al-Sisi’s celebrations fell flat

    The day that Al-Sisi has waited so long for has finally arrived; the day that he has been waiting for since he staged his brutal coup and overthrew the first elected civilian president in Egypt. He expected this day to be a party, with 40 million Egyptians joining him...

  • The clash of the three speeches

    Over a period of 24 hours after the official announcement of retired Field Marshal, the leader of the coup, Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi’s victory in the farcical elections, he gave a very brief recorded speech to the Egyptian people in which he thanked them. He also thanked the other candidate,...

  • Egypt's new Pharaoh

    Since July 3 last year, i.e. since the brutal coup was staged in Egypt, the chorus of corrupt journalists who were walking in Mubarak and his two sons’ procession carrying incense burners and playing horns have been trying to create a new Pharaoh to succeed their former Pharaoh. They...

  • The presidential election circus in Egypt

    The Presidential Election Commission announced the names of the two candidates who will run for presidency in Egypt, namely Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi and his shadow Hamdeen Sabahi, who was not able to meet the election eligibility requirements in accordance with the defective candidacy law customised by the interim president...

  • The republic of fear

    Egypt is going through an unprecedented state of fear, unknown to the country even throughout the eras of tyranny, oppression and injustice it has witnessed many times in its history. However, this time, in light of the brutal military coup, Egypt is living this reality after having experienced and...

  • Al-Sisi's bicycle

    Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi chose to begin his presidential campaign in Egypt by riding a bicycle valued at 40,000 Egyptian Pounds in an empty street with no vehicles other than a parked bus and exactly eight individuals. They were, of course, his guards. I am intrigued by those who doubted...

  • The Black Comedy

    Egypt continues to witness a black comedy since the bloody coup that drove the country into a dark tunnel threatening the future of Egypt. After the army presented us with its meatball invention that treats every disease and the magic substance that immediately paves roads while the cars drive...

  • The execution of the judiciary system in Egypt

    The judges, who passed death sentences upon 529 Egyptian citizens in the case of the murdered police officer, passed the death sentence upon the whole Egyptian judiciary system, the same system which coup leaders and their supporters labelled as a “distinguished judiciary”. On the other hand, the majority of the...

  • The Attiya Law

    Adding to the comedy being acted out in Egypt is the presidential election scene, a blatant attempt to convince the world that there is a real democracy at work and it is heading in the right direction. Part of the deception is the so-called Attiya Law issued by the...

  • The meatball state of Egypt

    Given the state of absurdity and farce experienced by Egypt at the moment, we should expect the unexpected; absolutely everything goes, no matter how illogical. We shouldn’t even laugh or poke fun at what is happening in our beloved Egypt, which has now become Al-Sisi’s Egypt, an Egypt full...

  • In Egypt, free elections are a fantasy

    In light of the policy of repression, tyranny and terrorism practiced by the brutal coup-led government in Egypt, and at a time when Egyptians do not feel that they or their families are safe from oppression, torture and murder, the brutal coup-led government insists on holding presidential elections. Propaganda campaigns...

  • History being forged by Al-Sisi and his gang

    Egypt is undergoing the biggest forgery and fabrication process in its modern history at the hands of Al-Sisi and his gang, who have violated Egypt and stolen the people’s dreams of freedom, dignity and social justice. We had hoped to achieve these goals through the January 25th Revolution and...

  • Prosecuting the January 25th Revolution

    The prosecution of the legitimately-elected President of Egypt, Dr Mohamed Morsi, on the farcical charges of storming prisons and the escape of several prisoners is basically the prosecution of the January 25th Revolution itself. The revolution gained its real momentum and strength on this particular day, when millions of...

  • The farcical referendum

    It was a memorable day in the history of forged polls in Egypt, reminiscent of the 1950s when referendums were corrupt and passed by 99 per cent, and also prevalent during Abdel Nasser’s era. The famous writer and journalist Mohamed Hassanein Heikal was the godfather of Abdel Nasser’s era...

  • Iranians are welcome in Egypt

    It is amazing that some people are trying to present Iranian tourists in Egypt as some kind of Shia invasion. The same people say nothing about Israeli tourists, even though they are all over the country whereas the Iranians are largely outside Cairo. Israel is a country against which...

  • Oh Jerusalem!

    It has been 46 years since we lost East Jerusalem; Israel seized control of it in 1967, annexing the eastern half of the city illegally almost straight away. Israel celebrates this painful memory by holding an annual celebration in which it emphasises that Jerusalem is the “permanent capital” of...

  • An anonymous source

    Anyone who denies that the Egyptian media, in both its visual and written form, is suffering from a professional and moral crisis is either too stubborn and proud or deceitful and glorifies unrighteousness to promote it as the truth. This has caused the cards to be mixed up and...

  • Truth will prevail

    After the military coup against elected President Mohamed Morsi, we can say that the January 25 revolution has ended. The blood and sacrifice of that revolution appear to have been wasted. Egypt suffered 60 years of oppression and poverty under army officers and yet they have been returned by...

  • October War celebrations turn to mourning

    The October 6th celebration of Egypt’s surprise attack against Israeli forces across the Suez Canal in 1973 is certainly a source of joy and pride for every Egyptian without exception. This year, though, the leaders of the bloody coup wanted to exclude a large part of the Egyptian public...

  • Tragicomedies playing out in Egypt

    Egypt in these days of the coup is a state of unprecedented absurdity of a kind not even experienced during the worst tyranny and injustice that began with the reign of Ramses II and ended with the rule of the tyrant Hosni Mubarak, passing the regime of the dictator...

  • Why were the Egyptians happy that their team lost?

    Does history repeat itself? Where once we had the late Sheikh Muhammad Alsharawi praising Allah for the reprehensible defeat of our army in the 1967 war with the Israelis we now have millions of Egyptians praising Allah for the defeat of Egypt’s football team during a World Cup qualifier...

  • Political stupidity prevails

    The coup leaders lost their minds and their insight the day they conspired against legitimacy, captured the elected president, Mohammed Morsi, and carried out a bloody military coup on 3rd July. They are delusional to think that they could again subject the Egyptian people to humiliation and take them back...
