Open Our Eyes

A golden rule for all of us: welcome every idea, however strange it seems, as long as it doesn’t claim to be the absolute good, and as long as it doesn’t refuse differences, and let go of every idea that shuts the door for creation and progress.

(KABUL) - Sherif and I in Cairo, 2006 While catching up with each other over the challenges facing ordinary Afghans and Egyptians, Sherif Sameer and I talked about how ‘opening our eyes’ could go a long way toward building a better world. We decided to co-write this piece, from Ismailia, Egypt and Kabul, Afghanistan.

The truth is there, clear and burning like a sun. We only need to open our eyes and take a look. ‘Our eyes’ means ‘our minds’. The mind is that big thing on top of our necks inside of our heads, and it has a function called ‘thinking’.

Egypt Thwarts `the New Middle East` Conspiracy

On June 30th Egyptians once again, mesmerized the world with a real revolution and with the help of a patriotic military managed to not only do away with the rule of the terrorist MB group but to put the whole new made-in-US world order/conspiracy to a halt.

(ALEXANDRIA, Egypt) - Egypt today A couple of years ago and while the millions of Egyptians were embarking on the world’s biggest occupy-your-square movement, President Obama alluded to what was happening in Tahrir Square, the hub of the Egyptian uprising, and said “We are witnessing history unfold in Egypt” … and as much as he was right then, he is now way on the wrong side of history and deadly dishonest, as if honesty had to do with politics, about what is still unfolding in Egypt.

Even more, Obama’s administration is foolishly losing Egypt, a pivotal Middle-Eastern state that has been a close ally to the US for over 40 years now...

One has to wonder if US policy makers are really that stupid...

(JAMESTOWN, RI) - Obama and Middle east fighting Sometimes the policy of my country sickens me. Take Egypt for example. A democratic election, was held, and by a narrow victory Mr. Morsi was elected President.

He won a majority of the public vote, but he was the leader of the “Muslim Brotherhood” party, and so immediately US mainstream media did not like him, despite the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood party of Egypt is a very moderate party, and despite the fact their party prevailed in a democratic election.

Hilarious: Aljazeera & MB Duplicity Caught on Camera

We didn’t oust Morsi for his diplomatic or economic failures- you’ll be surprised to find out how adaptively everyday Egyptians, over the heavy years, learned to live with such failures. We ousted him, by a revolution, for his loyalty to the MB was far more than to the state of Egypt.

(ALEXANDRIA, Egypt) - Egypt MB siege Though we live in the so called world of information, yet we are soaked to the eye brows in total deception and misinformation.
