    BY REHAM BARAKAT Cairo – At midnight last Friday, I could still hear the fireworks exploding outside my window, along with the sound of helicopter engines purring over the Presidential Palace exactly a minute’s walk from my window. It was the day hundreds of thousands of Egyptians across the nation decided to step outside into the streets in what was coined a “protest against potential terrorism” to use the words of Egypt’s Minister of Defense Abdel Fatah El Sissi. I refused to join the plodding march to provide the Armed Forces with a metaphorical “mandate” to resist “terrorism” in the…

    CAIRO – Tens of supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi were killed in confrontations with security forces close to the site of a month-long massive sit-in, as the interior minister denies the police had “ever” shot any protesters. According to Al Jazeera, the exact death toll from Saturday’s violence was not immediately clear, the health ministry has put the figure at 60 killed so far, based on the number of bodies received at the morgue. However, doctors at the field hospital in Nasr City, where the pro-Morsi supporters have been gathering at the Rabaah Al-Adaweya Mosque, have put the number as…

    CAIRO – Despite the sweltering Cairo heat where temperatures reached 40 degrees Celsius, anti-coup, pro-Morsi protesters pressed ahead with their 30-day sit-in at Rabaa El-Adaweya Mosque in Nasr City. On Friday dubbed “overturning the coup” tens of marches started all over the city to descend upon Islamists’ ground zero with renewed determination to stay the course in defiance of a veiled threat by de facto ruler and Defense Minister Abdel Fattah El Sisi to violently disperse Islamists’ sit-ins in Nasr City, Nahda Square and elsewhere in Egypt, under the pretext of fighting terrorism.

    Editorial: Sisi’s Ultimatums

    File photo: Tens of thousands have been protesting against the coup near Rabaa El Adaweya mosque since June 28.

    BY RANIA AL MALKY Cairo – Yesterday Egypt’s de facto leader Army Chief Abdel Fattah El-Sisi waged war against “possible terrorism” in the second 48-hour ultimatum he gives the Muslim Brotherhood in a month. So much for the charade of civilian leadership when Sisi side-steps the interim president, prime minister, his deputies and cabinet (all unelected) and calls Egyptians into the streets to give the military a “mandate” to confront weeks of violence, in an ill-begotten statement Wednesday seen by many as a prelude to a massacre of pro-Morsi supporters who have maintained a sit-in since June 28. A military…

    Op-ed: The Past in Egypt’s Present

    BY TAREK OSMAN Cairo – LONDON – In The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, the Czech novelist Milan Kundera wrote that, “The past is full of life, eager to irritate us, provoke and insult us, tempt us to destroy or repaint it. The only reason people want to be masters of the future is to change the past.” Egypt’s recent past is indeed provocative. Mohamed Ali, the Ottoman adventurer who took control in 1805 after France’s withdrawal, began to modernize Egypt by introducing effective administration, industrialization, exposure to Europe, and a standing army. The Mohamed Ali dynasty’s first six decades in power…

    Analysis: Egypt’s Ultimatum

    The US has postponed the delivery of F-16 fighter jets in a covert critique of how the Egypt's military has behaved since it ousted President Morsi earlier this month.

    BY FARAH HALIME Cairo – The US sent a strong message to Egypt yesterday. Under the Senate’s proposal, funds sent to Egypt will be kept at current levels, but military aid will be divided into four parts with conditions set on it. A key condition is that the Egyptian government holds democratic elections. While $1.55 billion a year is very little compared to the Gulf’s $12 billion splurge earlier this month, and considering Egypt needs roughly $11 billion to $12 billion a year to keep its deficit under control, politically, the aid retains a strong tie to Egypt’s army.  It also prevents the…

    In Pictures: Protesters at Higher Judicial Council

    CAIRO – One day following the publication of a front-page report by Egypt’s leading state-owned newspaper Al Ahram claiming that President Morsi was ordered remanded in custody for 15 days by the Prosecutor General, his supporters staged a massive protest in front of the Higher Judicial Council. Morsi, Egypt’s first democratically-elected civilian president, was removed by military coup and has been held incommunicado at an undisclosed location since July 3. The news has since been denied, but Morsi’s whereabouts are yet to be revealed. In a press conference on Monday, Morsi’s family accused the army of abducting their father and…

    In Pictures: Tens of thousands protest to “break the coup”

    Protesters at Rabaa Mosque hold up a poster in memory of the victims of the Republican Guards massacre, where military and police killed 51 protesters in an  unprovoked attack on July 8.

    CAIRO – Tens of thousands of protesters flooded Egypt’s streets and squares on Friday dubbed “Breaking the Coup” to demand the reinstatement of President Mohamed Morsi, who was removed by a military coup on July 3 and has been held incommunicado at an undisclosed location ever since. The massive protests crown two weeks of bloody confrontations between Morsi loyalists and the army, which on July 8 used excessive, unprovoked violence against peaceful, unarmed protesters near the Republican Guards building, killing at least 51 and wounding hundreds, according to a report by Human Rights Watch.  The rallies come a day after…

    Op-ed: Coup vs. revolution: Which narrative to prevail?

    BY ABDELGHANY SAYED Cairo –Following 18 days of protests in around five governorates, Egyptians woke up on 11 February 2011 to see military tanks across the country; while rumors spread that Mubarak is about to step down. A few hours after midday, Egypt’s ex-spy chief, who was appointed as vice-president on 29 January 2011, Omar Suleiman, announced that Mubarak has stepped down and handed power over to the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF), while SCAF’s spokesperson announced that the military took over power. Mubarak was then put under house arrest by the military in an unknown place, (Sharm El-Sheikh according…

    Analysis: Morsi: A fairly typical Muslim Brother

    Screen grab shows President Mohamed Morsi making his final speech before being ousted by a military coup.

    BY NAEL SHAMA Cairo – Nikita Khrushchev once said that “politicians are the same all over,” for “they promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.” I agree with the second part. While most politicians are prone to making hefty promises and unrealistic pledges, their deeds and fates diverge fundamentally. Some politicians succeed and inspire, others fail drastically, leaving office disheartened and ostracized. Some politicians are forever remembered, others sink into oblivion in the blink of an eye. More importantly, only a few politicians conquer the constraints imposed by their environments, the rest remain prisoners of their…
