    CAIRO – Thousands of anti-coup protesters joined nation-wide marches after Friday prayers on a day dubbed by the Muslim Brotherhood “The People Reclaim their Revolution” despite warnings by police Thursday that it will continue to use live fire “in legitimate self-defense.” According to news reports, the health ministry said six people had been killed on Friday in fighting between protesters and local residents, including one in Port Said. Morsi’s supporters said that another person was also killed in Zagazig, Sharqiya province. Otherwise the marches were relatively peaceful, except for some clashes in Cairo’s Mohandiseen area at Mostafa Mahmoud Square where police fired…

    Op:ed: In Egypt, Only the Dead Know Who is Right

    Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim (center) at the funeral of police officers on Aug. 15. Police has been instructed to use live ammunition to protect state buildings. Hundreds of protesters and tens of police have been killed since then.

    BY DEENA DOUARA Cairo – I think, perhaps, amid all the emotion, one can make a calculated decision on where to stand on the violence in Egypt. I understand both arguments. Security forces are massacring mostly peaceful demonstrators with impunity, ushering in the type of force we sought to overthrow in 2011, the type of brutality we despised for years, that made martyrs of young faces now rendered across Tahrir Square. Or, Morsi supporters are being dealt with after firing first, attacking police stations and churches, threatening to “burn” Egypt. They are terrorists seeking to rip apart — both literally…

    Editorial: Egypt’s False Dichotomies

    File photo of tens of bodies kept cool with ice blocks in Iman Mosque on Aug. 15, one day after the police's violent dispersal of an anti-coup protest in Nasr City, Cairo.

    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…

    Campus politics: Has the chaos moved in?

    File photo of a protest by Ain Shams University students against on-campus thuggery.

    BY MAI SHAMS EL-DIN Cairo The practical advice from the vice president of student affairs at Ain Shams University wasn’t exactly what young Omnia Hassan expected when she complained that she was attacked  on campus by a group of “thugs”. “He suggested I carry a knife to protect myself because, according to him, even the president of the university can’t protect himself,” said Hassan, a junior at the Faculty of Arts. Ain Shams University students have been complaining from what they call “thugs” on campus. Theories abound about who they are, but it is widely believed that they are predominantly…

    Compromise and the revolution

    Screen grab of President Mohamed Morsi's historic first speech addressing the nation.

    BY NOUR BAKR At its height, the defining mantra of Egypt’s tumultuous uprising was the famous cry “the people want the fall of the regime.” That the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), along with many remnants of the Mubarak era remain key players in the country’s politics is widely held as proof that the revolution ultimately failed. Whilst partially true, the electoral successes of the Muslim Brotherhood do not, as many have argued, completely betray the ultimate aim of the uprising. Rather the successive victories of Mohamed Morsi and the FJP signify the triumph of a compromise on…

    Delayed verdicts up tension

    File: An Islamist protest outside the State Council.

    BY SARAH EL SIRGANY Cairo: Tuesday was slated to be a field day in court — a series of cases scheduled for July 17 were set to determine the course of Egypt’s complex political scene. But by the day’s end, no final rulings were made, leaving the scene as frayed and uncertain as it has been for weeks, marked by wrangling between the judiciary, the presidency and the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF). The Administrative Court considered several key cases: appeals to freeze President Mohamed Morsi’s decision to reinstate parliament; another one demanding the dissolution of the Shoura…

    Egypt’s fragmented politics

    Protesters gather in from of the State Council on July 9 against the dissolution of parliament, seen as a prelude to a confrontation between the ruling generals and the Islamist president.

    BY NATE WRIGHT As a news journalist in Cairo, I have written my fair share of leads over the last year which feature an Egypt “plunging” in and out of crisis or its leaders “squaring up” for another decisive “showdown.” It has been a year of dramatic headlines and extraordinary confusion, as time and again the country’s major players have tried to launch themselves into power, only to find that the platform they were aiming at has shifted beneath them. This was my first post-revolution transition to witness up close — if I can still be permitted to suggest that,…

    Morsi haunted by MB despite resignation

    BY HEBA HESHAM Cairo: Despite his resignation from the Muslim Brotherhood and its political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), President Mohamed Morsi remains haunted by the group. Skeptics claim his authorities as president will be restricted by his “subordination” to them. When he was named Egypt’s new president, Morsi’s electoral campaign announced that he resigned from his position in the Guidance Bureau of the Muslim Brotherhood and as chief of the FJP, a promise he had made as a gesture of goodwill. While Morsi was not obliged to do that, the gesture was necessary to restore trust in…

    Editorial: Battle for the constitution

    The real bone of contention between SCAF and the Brotherhood is the constitution.

    BY RANIA AL MALKY Cairo: Today is a very happy day in the history of Egypt. Those who elected Morsi are happy because he won, and those who elected Shafik are happy because he won; and those who boycotted are happy because Tantawi tricked them both. Those who hate Mubarak are happy because he’s dead and those who love him are happy because he’s still alive. God bless Egyptian hashish. So went the joke, which in a few words summed up the level of chaos, polarization and disinformation suffocating Egyptians today, less than 24 hours before the Presidential Election Committee…

    MB flaunts confrontation chip

    Protesters filled Tahrir Square Friday in objection to SCAF's coup against the democratic process.

    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…
