Comments On This Week's News

1- Hamas stops the seize fire with Israel after Israel killed 9 Palestinians this past weekend:
.
أعلن الجناح العسكري لحركة المقاومة الاسلامية (حماس) الثلاثاء 24-4-2007 انهاء وقف اطلاق النار في قطاع غزة المبرم منذ خمسة
أشهر وأطلق صواريخ على اسرائيل لكن الحكومة الفلسطينية التي تقودها حماس دعت الى الحفاظ على التهدئة الهشة.
وقالت كتائب عز الدين القسام انها أطلقت صواريخ من قطاع غزة ردا على مقتل تسعة فلسطينيين في مطلع الاسبوع على يد القوات الاسرائيلية
.
.
What did we expect from Israel? did we expect them to stick to the seize fire and not go into the Palestinian territories and kill people?? what's new?!
.
2- Abdullah Goul nominated By Turkish ruling party to go for Turkish presidential elections:
.
دافع عبد الله غول وزير الخارجية التركية الذي اختاره الثلاثاء 24-4-2007 الحزب الحاكم لخوض انتخابات الرئاسة عن حق زوجته في ارتداء الحجاب قائلا في مؤتمر صحفي ان "هذه حرية شخصية".
وفي وقت سابق أعلن رئيس الوزراء التركي رجب طيب أردوغان ان حزب العدالة والتنمية الحاكم اختار غول ليخوض انتخابات الرئاسة باسم الحزب. ويخشى العلمانيون ان يستغل أول رئيس لتركيا له اصول اسلامية المنصب لاضعاف الفصل بين الدين والدولة.
وغول هو دبلوماسي يحظى بالاحترام أشرف على بدء محادثات انضمام تركيا الى الاتحاد الاوروبي كوزير للخارجية لكنه قد يثير قلق الجيش أيضا لان زوجته محجبة وستصبح في حالة انتخابه رئيسا لتركيا أول سيدة أولى محجبة تدخل قصر الرئاسة التركي وهذه قضية مصدر توتر مع العلمانيين في تركيا.
وينتخب البرلمان التركي الذي يتمتع فيه حزب العدالة والتنمية باغلبية الرئيس التركي من خلال سلسة من الاقتراعات تبدأ يوم 27 ابريل/ نيسان. وسيتولى الرئيس التركي الجديد مهام منصبه يوم 16 مايو/ آيار.

Way to go! about time we get some people with Islamic backgrounds (political i mean) in leading roles (shwayet hawa ba2a...mish kolo kabt kabt keda...lol). Go Abdullah Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
.
3- Egyptian Parliament interferes to stop the attacks in some independent newspapers on Prophet followers (Sahaba) and his wife Aisha:
.
تدخل مجلس الشعب المصري "البرلمان" بقوة لوقف الهجوم على الصحابة الذي تقوم به بعض الصحف المستقلة، وخاصة المقالات التي استهدفت مؤخرا الصحابي أبو هريرة راوي حديث رسول الله، والامام البخاري، وأم المؤمنين السيدة عائشة زوجة الرسول.
دعت اللجنة الدينية بالمجلس في اجتماع عاجل لها، المجلس الأعلى للصحافة انفاذ سلطاته بصفته الجهة العليا المسؤولة عما ينشر في الصحف، وحثت على سن قانون يشدد العقوبات على جريمة ازدراء الأديان.
يأتي ذلك بعد أسبوع من الاستغاثة التي وجهها مجمع البحوث الاسلامية بالأزهر للرئيس المصري حسني مبارك لوقف الهجوم الحاد الذي انتهجته بعض الصحف المستقلة على الصحابة، وخصوصا المقالات والملفات التي استهدفت راوي الحديث الصحابي أبو هريرة، وأم المؤمنين السيدة عائشة، والامام البخاري صاحب أشهر كتب الحديث المعتمدة عند السنة وهو "صحيح البخاري".
.
Someone once told me that a couple of dodgy independent newspapers (min betoo3 ta7t el selem wee el shatayem) are doing such things for a while now. Seems it got out of hand and now the parliament is interfering.
Insulting the Prophet's Wife and Sahaba (undermining and accusing them of stuff) reminds me of part of this post Tackling The Sheia Dilemma (not that Sheia have to be behind those newspapers of course...God only knows who is).
.
Jerks live around us, what can i say?!
.
4- Egyptian Football Club Al Ahli celebrates it's 100th year anniversary. Al Ahli lost their celebration match against Barcelona 0-4:
.
تغلب برشلونة الاسباني على الاهلي المصري 4- صفر في مباراة اقيمت على استاد القاهرة الدولي احتفالا بمرور 100 عام على تأسيس
النادي القاهرة العريق امام جمهور غفير قدر بنحو 67 الف متفرج تقدمهم الرئيس المصري محمد حسني مبارك.
.
Regardless of the loss which is normal, i have to say the best thing in Al Ahli team was Wael Goma'a (Al Ahli Club Defender) who did very good stopping the notorious Ronaldinho.
.
Besides that match, Happy Anniversary Ya Ahli!
In four years time (2011) it will be Zamalek's turn for their 100th year anniversary :)
.
Mood: Yawning...

Comment on No. 4. Wael Gom3a did pretty well, I agree. But I think Met3eb was the one who was obviously trying his best. The poor guys. I wish they had scored just one goal. Maalish.

Walahi wana ya sara.

Don't take me as a Zamalkawi mota3aseb. I am with anything that represents Egypt.

What annoyes me is that some arabs are really happy with our defeat... mish momken el 3'el ya3ny!

But, the majority of Arabs supported Al Ahli anyway so that is what counts i guess.

Enta 3ayez to7ot elzamalek fi ay gomla mofeeda :) I know how you feel. lol.

I have some comments ba2a on Turkey and what is happening in our parliament. Shoof ya seedy.

Turkey needs to perserve its secular nature to be able to enter the EU. It is their right to have concerns about the future of their country, especially with the negative examples of religious rule in the Middle East.

Now, concerning our honorable parliament, with the 88 muslim brothers, I see that its performance is no better, but worse. Ya3ni instead of merely doing nothing to face corruption or to enhance democracy or defend civil rights, they also go to discuss trivial things.
Ya3ni this can be discussed in newspapers or even TV programs, not the parliament. Ye3melo 7aga lel3omal elli 3amleen edrab, or the people who can't find jobs, or eldostor elmnayel elgedeed a7san.

"especially with the negative examples of religious rule in the Middle East"

looool, you made me laugh...which country is that?!
Oh, you mean to say Iran or Saudi... if so, then yes, they are not bright examples.

But i wish for a moderate one...who knows, maybe Moritania would be it. We'll have to wait and see.
ISA, there will be a bright example some time in the future. Maybe not in our generation. As bright as the past hopefully :)

As for the MB:
"face corruption or to enhance democracy or defend civil rights, they also go to discuss trivial things."

You obviously do not watch the parliment sessions or programs like "Ala el hawa" or "Al Kahira AL youm". That is of course besides the "Masri Al Youm" newspaper which mentions what they discuss.

Yes, sometimes they choose stupid things to discuss, but one has to be fair, they do talk and make known about cooruption cases, civil rights,..etc.

A few examples out of many:
- Torture in prisons questions and demands against the Ministry Of Internal Affiars (da7'leya).
- Detainning against law verdicts questions and demands.
- Obstruction of students with high honors to get jobs in universities just becuase they are poor or there is another student who is a son of a university teacher (with less grades).
- The famous corruption case in Al Kasr Al Eini.
- there stand against NDP and the governement ridiculous new laws (have to give credit to AL Wafd and other parties for standing all together on this one, not that they could stop it...lol).

...and many others.

The fact is... these 88 MBs have made a big raw in the parliment.
Yes, they can not change legistlations becuase they (with the rest of the oposition) do not consist of a third of the parliment to stop any legistlation.

This of course reminds us what happened in the parliment elections by the security forces to make sure that the MBs do not get enough seats so they do not become a true threat in the parmilment.

min el a7'er...agree with them or not. It is good to have a tough oposition.

And one thing is for sure...next parlimental elections, the government will not give them a chance to get those 88 seats again.

I am guessing that the MBs will only get like 4 seats max.
Everything around us points that the government and the NDP will make sure MBs do not get a chance for anything!

so much for democracy :(
