  • Editorial: Egypt’s False Dichotomies

    BY RANIA AL MALKY Cairo – It’s been a week since the brutal dispersal of Cairo’s largest anti-coup protests in Rabaa and Nahda squares, a week of lies, hate, bloodshed and xenophobia. Having manufactured “enemies-of-the-state” out of tens of thousands of Egyptians opposed to a political setback that has catapulted the country back 60 years to the height of Nasser’s police state, Egypt’s de facto ruling military is on a path of no return. False dichotomies propagated by conspiratorial public and private media in perfect sync and that have tragically split every Egyptian family, are the bedrock of the violence…

    Op-ed: The Myth of Khaki Democracy

    Screen grab shows Defense Minister Abdel Fattah El Sisi who led the coup against ousted President Morsi on July 3.

    BY IAN BURUMA New York – Egypt and Thailand have little in common, except for one thing. In both countries, at different times, educated people who pride themselves on being democrats have ended up applauding military coups against elected governments. They had resisted oppressive military regimes for many years. But, in Thailand in 2006, as in Egypt last month, they were happy to see their political leaders ousted by force. This perversity is not without reason. The elected leaders in both countries, Thaksin Shinawatra in Thailand and Mohamed Morsi in Egypt, were good examples of illiberal democrats: they tended to…

    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…

    Op-ed: A bitter reconciliation

    BY REHAM BARAKAT Cairo – As I write this article on a tepid Ramadan night in Cairo, I cannot help but feel that Ramadan this year does not emanate any sense of peace and tranquility. I say this as I follow news of clashes in Cairo between pro-Morsi supporters, police and exasperated members of the local community where it has been reported that last night 7 people were killed, over 200 injured and more than 400 arrested. I can already hear the voices of those who were against the June 30 protests that led to the removal of Morsi, yelling…

    Op-ed: Here’s to Egypt

    BY REHAM BARAKAT Cairo – “It’s a coup.” “No, it is not, it is a revolution of the people.” “Alright, let’s call it a soft coup.” “Not even, it is the work of Tamarod and the people and the army only stepped in to meet their demands.” This is an example of the revolving, dizzying dialogue that is now flooding traditional and social media and conversations in the street following the spectacular ousting of President Morsi from power in Egypt. After three days of unprecedented protests across the nation denouncing the legitimacy of now ex-President Morsi and demanding early presidential…

    Editorial: Paved with good intentions

      BY RANIA AL MALKY Cairo – As Egypt sprints along the road to hell, the military-installed interim President Adli Mansour, chief justice of the Supreme Constitutional Court, took the oath of office yesterday, praising the army’s intervention so that Egypt could “correct the path of its glorious revolution.”  Outside the venerable halls of officialdom, an utter scene of chaos, schizophrenia and repression. The swift popularly-backed military coup that removed Mohamed Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected civilian president, on the first anniversary of his term, began an equally swift reconstruction of a murderous regime that the Egyptian masses rose up…

    In Pictures: Egyptians wait in anticipation for Army speech

    CAIRO – Anti-Morsi protesters in Tahrir Square and Ittihadiya Palace waited in anticipation for the decision of the supreme military council, as the 48-hour ultimatum it gave the president approached its final hour. A jubilant, celebratory mood pervaded both areas as leaks from unnamed military sources implied that President Morsi was practically besieged.  All photos by Hassan Ibrahim.

    Analysis: Showdown in Egypt

    BY OMAR ASHOUR London – With massive anti-government protests across Egypt on June 30 – a year to the day after Egyptians elected their first-ever civilian president – a diverse and decentralized movement has challenged President Mohammad Morsi’s hold on power as never before. Hundreds of thousands were mobilized to take to the streets, with many storming and burning down the Cairo headquarters of the ruling Muslim Brotherhood. At the end of the day, the president was given an ultimatum. The first “revolutionary” statement of Egypt’s new grassroots Tamarod (rebel) movement demanded that Morsi leave within two days or face a march on the…

    MB flaunts confrontation chip

    BY SARAH EL SIRGANY Cairo: Less than a day before a new president is named, the politically conservative Muslim Brotherhood finds itself at the forefront of a major battle. Having lost parliament and possibly the presidential seat, the group has been forced to defend its gains using tactics that go beyond its usual deal-making and incremental reform approach. In a turbulent week fraught with rumored doomsday scenarios the Brotherhood saw the Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) and the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) dissolve a parliament led by its political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party. Its near win…
