Besides being known as the man belonging to the National Democratic Party (the ruling party for more than 25 years in Egypt), he is is also known to have a problem with anyone who is not pro-NDP.
From Islamists, Nationalists, to even Liberals (remeber his attack on Hala Moustafa?)…anyone who is not pro-NDP was\is\will be attacked by that Abdullah Kamal in that awful newspaper.
I even remember when he attacked Amr Adeeb (a very famous presenter of a TV talk show called “Al Qahirah AL Youm” on Orbit Channel) becuase Amr didn't support trading with Israel (while Israel was killing poor Palastinians).
Seems now the Mr.Karioka (ma3a i3tezarna lel fanana ta7eya karioka) has decided to lash at millions of muslim women, this time he is he is attacking women wearing veils (Hijab).
In his "Rose Al Yousef" Article dated 28-10-2006, he actually called the Hijab a symbol of racism against Egyptian Christians???!!!!
His opinion (if I understood correctly) is to take it off muslim women. In that way all chirstian and muslim women are the same.
Eh el habal da!!!!
I will not talk about Hijab being compulsory and proof behind that. I will not talk about the fact that even some jewish and christian women wear veils (religous ones specially, think nuns..etc.), I'll talk from two other points of view…
If you are liberal as you say you are Mr.Kamal (walanta kamal wala neyla), then you were suppose to (from a liberal point fo view) defend "freedom of chioce" and let women decide for themselves whether to wear it or not. Not just say "take it off" min dema3'ak keda!
And for another point of view, I dedicate Mr.Kamal this part of an article by Gamal Sultan (co-founder of Al-Misryoon Electronic newspaper) from Al-Misryoon Electronic newspaper (for full article go to: http://www.almesryoon.com/ShowDetailsC.asp?NewID=25889&Page=1)
“ألا يستحي كاتب مصري من أن يدافع رئيس الكنيسة الإنجيلية في بريطانيا عن حق المسلمة في ارتداء النقاب أو الحجاب ، بينما رئيس "الكنيس" الصحفي في القاهرة يطالب بنزعه عن رؤوس الملايين من المصريات ومطاردة كل محجبة في الشوارع والمدارس والمستشفيات والمصالح الحكومية ، ألا يستحي هذا المعتوه من أن يوجه الإهانات إلى عائلته ذاتها والتي فيها عشرات من الفتيات والسيدات من المحجبات ، ألا يستحي من أن يوجه الإهانات إلى زوجات وبنات قيادات القوات المسلحة وقيادات أجهزة الأمن ذاتها بكل أفرعها وقيادات المجالس التشريعية والأحزاب والمؤسسات القضائية والرقابية
Allah Yehdena Gamee3a.
