The Egyptian Un-Revolution

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful Just few months ago, Egyptians of all walks of life showed the whole world an ultimate example of national unity. During the peaceful revolution in Egypt, Muslims, Christians, conservative and liberal, Islamists and Seculars, were all united against one goal – riding the country […]

Is the west trying to collect the fruits of Syrian revolution?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful There seems to be something missing in the logic of David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, and Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State. Both are putting up expectations and conditions about how the new Syria that will emerge after Assad should be like, […]

Russian gamble on Syria

For a very long time, Iran, with its controversial nuclear ambitions was the most reliable ally for Russia in the Middle East. This region that holds the biggest oil reserves in the world is of immense strategic importance and the battle over it is heating almost by the day. China, Europe, US, and Russia, are […]

The wrong revolution?

After having consumed the majority of earth’s natural resources, having polluted the air, the sea, the land, and the space around our planet, having plagued generations with diseases caused by nuclear bombs and other dirty weapons, having genetically changed fruits, vegetables, and animals, and after having killed millions of people in avoidable wars, all for […]

Libya: the addicts and dinosaurs!

The events in Libya took even the most pessimistic of people by surprise. I am talking about both, those who were pessimistic about how atrocious can a dictator be; and those who thought that politicians cannot possibly go lower.

Pro Mubarak disillusion

During the last two days, some people were saying that Mubarak should be given a chance to leave with dignity. Some people even went on to say that the majority of Egyptian people are not protesting because they want him to stay. I find myself obligated to write this post to explain why these claims […]

The power of illusion … at least!

Even if we are going to be optimists, and a little bit naïve, and believe what Mubarak was saying today in his interview with ABC, it is still an indication of the way this man sees Egypt. He told Christiane Amanpour that he wants to step down, but ‘he is afraid that Egypt will fall […]

The last manouver

The Egyptian president’s problem is that he thinks he is smart, when he is stupid. The problem with Obama, and the rest of the world leaders is that they are taking him seriously. The problem with Egypt is that this rotten regime managed throughout his three decades of Mubarak’s presidency to buy a lot of […]

The Mubarak trap

During the long period of dictatorship in the Arab world, many analysts were saying that it is a vulnerability for a country to be embodied in a single person. This makes the country weak not only because this person can have personal interests or wrong judgments, but also because the state in that case becomes […]
