Tim King: The Man I Never Met But Will Never ForgetDr. Ashraf Ezzat special to Salem-News.com
Obituary for Tim King from Alexandria, Egypt
(ALEXANDRIA, Egypt) - I got to know Tim through my collaboration with Salem-News.com (a distinguished online site that promotes world peace & advocates free speech & human rights).
I am Ashraf Ezzat, a medical doctor from Alexandria Egypt. Like Tim, I had many passions, for I’m also an independent documentary filmmaker and author. Not to mention that I do a lot of research about the history of Ancient Egypt & that of the Near East. Such a hot spot in the ancient & modern world.
One key & sensitive political issue that Tim was personally keen to constantly highlight in Salem-News is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Tim was open about his support for the Palestinian right of freedom. He was very much opposed & troubled by American & European policy of turning a blind eye to the atrocities & violations of human rights the Israeli government commits regularly against Palestinians.
I used to post my articles & videos at “Veterans Today” and one of the editors there introduced me to Tim King (I think that was back in 2011) and instantly he welcomed me on the board of international authors on Salem-News.com.
I was active on Salem-News for over 6 years till 2017 when I decided to dedicate more of my time for documentary filmmaking.
During those years I got to know and collaborate with one of the nicest, kindest, and most sincere advocate for human rights and world peace. His name is Tim King.
I send my condolences to Bonnie King & family.
I will not write a cliché obituary, rather I will mention Tim in one of the ancient Egyptian prayers/hymns "usually cited inside royal temples & tombs".
It goes like this:
O thou lord of lightness
Thou who art at the head of the great house …
Prince of night and thick darkness …
He comes to thee a pure soul
O, grant thou unto him
His mouth that he may speak therewith,
And guide thou to him, his heart
In the season when there are thick clouds
And enormous darkness ...” ---Funerary Hymn from the Egyptian Book of the Dead

He says Egyptology holds a special place in his heart, for Egypt is where the human conscience sprouted. In ancient Egypt all things civilized began to evolve.
