Misplaced Lessons of Tahrir

The lesson I take away from The Square is that we must prevent the operation of business as usual until the institution itself, not its face, is fixed.

(WASHINGTON, DC) - Tahrir Square in Egypt I still want Dirty Wars to win the Oscar, but The Square is a documentary worth serious discussion as we hit the three-year point since the famous occupation of Tahrir Square in Cairo that overthrew Mubarak -- in particular because a lot of people seem to get a lot of the lessons wrong.

I suppose some people will leave Dirty Wars imagining that we need clean wars, whatever those would be. But too many people seem to be drawing from The Square lessons they brought with them to it...

(WASHINGTON, DC) - William Nicholas Gomes, Human Rights Ambassador for Salem-News.com views the crackdown on ECESR as a part of an escalating harsh campaign to silence human rights defenders in Egypt.

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...

How to Make Enemies around the World in Two Easy Lessons

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.
