  • Myth vs. reality in pro-Morsi sit-in

    BY AMRO HASSAN Cairo – The rumors and fabrications targeting tens of thousands of supporters of President Mohamed Morsi, who was removed from office on July 3 by a military coup, have reached new heights of malicious creativity. Unlike in 2011, when some pro-Mubarak Egyptians went to Tahrir Square to take a closer look at what the January 25 protests were all about, few of the anti-Morsi camp have even considered approaching the Rabaa El Adaweya sit-in. Ever since the military takeover, Egyptian state and independent media networks and channels have mostly abandoned the sit-in, assuming perhaps that one day…

    Op-ed: Bleeding democracy

    Droves of protesters in Tahrir Square and around the Presidential Palace in Cairo have challenged the literal definition of democracy by calling for the removal of Egypt's first "democratically" elected President Morsi.

    BY REHAM BARAKAT Cairo – My morning today was spent looking up the official definition of the word democracy, not because I don’t know what it means, but I wanted to be sure that I was working with the official version of it. Naturally because there is more than one dictionary, I couldn’t find one unified definition of this much reiterated, almost sacred word. Nonetheless, the gist of what I found is that democracy is the “government of the people” and “rule by the majority” through “elections” or “elected representatives.” The reason why I was so eager to search for…

    In Pictures: Selections from Tahrir, Ittihadiya, Nasr City

    CAIRO – On the last Friday before planned June 30 mass rallies called for by grassroots Tamarod (Rebellion) campaign demanding early presidential elections, pro and anti-Morsi protestors flexed their muscles with coordinated street action across the nation. In Tahrir Square, where throngs of anti-Morsi protesters converged and have started a sit-in, and in Nasr City at Rabaa El Adaweyya Mosque Square, where their opponents congregated in the tens of thousands, the day went by in peace. But parallel protests in Alexandria, where two were killed during clashes between both sides – one of them and American who was stabbed to death…

    Op-ed: New faces, old lies, same denial

    Hundreds of thousands of protesters congregated in Tahrir Square on Tuesday chanting the same slogans they did against Mubarak two years ago.

    BY ASMAA EL GAMMAL The morning after Tuesday’s massive demonstrations against President Mohamed Morsi’s recent constitutional declaration, the Freedom and Justice Party’s message was loud and clear: Tahrir is not to be taken seriously.   On the front page of the party’s newspaper, the headline read: “Revolutionaries, folol (former regime remnants) and peddlers in Tahrir Square. Disregarding the chants of tens of thousands of protesters outraged by the President’s declaration of invincible powers, the FJP’s mouthpiece chose to focus on a handful of corn-sellers to suggest that it was nothing more than a gathering of revolution-haters and petty salesmen.  …

    Op-ed: Freedom, blasphemy, and violence

    Screen grab shows clashes between protesters and security forces near the US embassy in Cairo.

    BY ARYEH NEIER PARIS  Violent attacks on US diplomatic outposts across North Africa and the Middle East have once again raised the question of how to respond when Americans and other Westerners engage in provocative expression that others consider blasphemous. Though the attack on the US diplomatic mission in Benghazi, in which Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three members of his staff were murdered, may well have been planned, as the State Department has maintained, the killers clearly exploited the opportunity created by outrage at an anti-Muslim film produced in the US. There have been several episodes in recent years…

    Egypt’s stake in the Syrian revolution

    Numerous segments of the Egyptian public have thrown their weight behind “their” Syrian revolution and cheered for their team.

    BY AMRO ALI When Tahrir Square was not playing host to Egypt’s revolutionary sequels, it became one of the chief unofficial nerve centres of the Syrian Revolution. Thousands of fleeing Syrians quickly connected with Egyptian activism, coordinated with the Syrian National Council (SNC), raised awareness amongst Egyptians, set up tents, launched weekly protests, collected donations, hosted conferences, pressured the nearby Arab League, and disseminated information from inside Syria with international media outlets and journalists based in Cairo. Syrian activities could be found in the shadow of the Arab League building and on the steps of the Alexandria library, the Bibliotheca…

    Thousands protest Mubarak verdict

    BY FARAH SAAFAN Cairo: Egyptians took to the streets on June 2 to protest the acquittal of Mubarak’s six security chiefs on charges of complicity in killing protesters. Protesters were also angered by the acquittal of the ousted president’s two sons Gamal and Alaa from corruption charges and the abuse of authority. If you can’t see the video, click here.
