    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…

    Op-ed: For a Better Tomorrow

    BY SARAH EL SIRGANY and RANIA AL MALKY Cairo: It was hyped up as a confrontation between military-led state institutions and election legitimacy, but the anticlimactic arrival of a handful of members of the recently dissolved parliament on Tuesday revealed that no one had confrontation in mind except some enthusiastic protesters. On Monday night, an official at the Freedom and Justice Party, whose MPs constitute the bigger part of the Islamist majority, said that MPs will march to parliament on Tuesday to attend the session as scheduled. The same official, Yasser Ali, was vague about the prospect of confrontation. The…
