And continue our tale , it is the 405th Arabian night as well the fourth in our tale , the tale of Hagar , Sahar and Egrama.
Now Wael Bin Kanaan’s tribe has stopped the awful tradition of killing their daughters for fear of disgrace thanks to Sahar , the daughter of chieftain. Her birthday sooner became a national day called “The virgin day”. After many years of her birth , on the Virgin , there was that big market the tribe held where all things from camels to daggers to monkeys are being sold. Sahar and Hagar now are kids and friends playing around and so on. “of course when they get older , they will become lovers”
There is another boy they are speaking about , a naughty one who is called Egrama , the son of Sheikh Aref. Sooner Egrama joins them to play Lovers , yes Lovers where one of them is the knight that loves Sahar and the other is his rival who kidnaps her. You can guess Egrama is the rival and Hagar is the knight. Now Hagar kicks Egrama’s ass so badly that he hurries to his dad complaining from both Sahar and Hagar. His dad sheikh Aref in the market tells Sahar and Hagar’s parents that he will have his revenge from them and not from their kids and tribal fight would start.
To avoid tribal fight because of kids’ play , Sheikh Wael suggests that they would head to the tribe’s elderly to show their case. Later we see that Wael Bin Kanaan decides to set both Sahar and Hagar away from each other because they love each and create problems despite they are just kids but the suggestion was ignored.
The elderly decided that Both Wael Bin Kanaan and Ibn Hagar should slaughter two camels to compensate sheikh Aref.

By the way this is a long tale, a 30 episodes tale.
You agree or disagree , you hate him or you you love him but you have to admit that after 60 years many Egyptians look to Gamal Abdel Nasser as a benchmark for charismatic leadership in Egypt.
I can not count the times I have heard Egyptians saying on this or that candidate whether Abu El Fotouh or Moussa or even Shafik and lately Morsi that he is trying to be like Nasser this year. I can not ignore how suddenly we find his clips from speeches slamming the Muslim brotherhood, the States, Gulf and even El Assad found it its way to Facebook pages and walls by young generations who do not know the real meaning of socialist Nasserite !!
He has become a benchmark for all presidents , we have to admit it.
Nasser did horrible crimes against this country mainly reviving the pharaoh idolism and enforcing it with dictatorship and police state , it is horrible sin that costs us till this day. Of course Nasser defenders claim that we should not judge him by our today’s standards and that dictatorship was the fashion in the east camp plus he had believed in social justice more than democratic reforms. Well for me he was a dictator just like Mohamed Ali was , these are facts.
I can not ignore what he did when it comes to social justice , his attempts to create social justice of course are debatable but at least he tried to do something. I can not ignore that in this time in 2012 we need to return back to Africa in the same way he did. African countries still respect him and unfortunately we are not using it.
I have a confession after 16 months from our revolution and the obstacles it faces from judiciary , media , army and businessmen , I understood the changes Nasser and his Free officers did throughout the 16 years of his rule when its comes to judiciary , media and economy when you establish to a new political system or regime. SCAF understood this very well but we did not except too late because we do not read history and if we do , we do not understand it properly as it should.
Our revolution , our January revolution was against the Pharaoh idolism , we are challenging his legacy yet the question in my mind now based on history : Was it Nasser’s legacy for real or it is in our genes to idolize charismatic rulers regardless of their iron fist !?
Another question : Can we have another president , another leader that would shift this benchmark ??
Kandeel is the Youngest Prime minister in the history of Modern Egypt and he is also the first Islamist to hold this". He was graduated from faculty of engineering , Cairo University in1984. He got his A Masters degree and PhD in irrigation and sewage systems from North Carolina Universty and university of Utah.
In previous interview Kandeel stated that he wasn't a member of MB but sources say that he is close to them.
More to come and actually despite this may send a message that Morsi cares about water problem , his choice will make many angry as Kandeel is unknown and technocrat PM.
The decision is creating a huge controversy and division between those who are welcoming Kandil and those are against him.
I can not keep noticing how that Jewish father was reading in the paper about El Assad's forces..etc.
Now the Egyptian news websites whether Ahram Gate , Shorouk , Dostor and Al Badil are showing the ad and saying that it is insulting Mohamed Morsi because it says that the Third Temple will be built and the Egyptian president will not stop it !!
Here is a screen cap showing the photo of Morsi.
Now from what I read and I know , the Zionist Christians as well radical Zionist Jews believe that the second coming of the Messiah and building the third temple will happen after a huge war between Muslims and Jews which includes the destruction of Al Aqsa Mosque.
Now as an Egyptian I can not keep myself from acting as an Egyptian and wonder how this man was a commander in the Syrian Arab army , he is like Amr Hamazawy of SAA. “Egyptians will relate !!” I saw Egyptian officers and generals from Republican guards and they do not like that at all.
Unfortunately the blood rivers in Syria continued and over 100 were killed as it has become in the past three weeks. Already 30 Syrians have been killed in a mosque near Hama in a new massacre tonight according to Reuters.
On the other hand the FSA announced today an Egyptian fighter Mohamed Ibrahim El Sheikh has been killed earlier today in Reef Dimshaq by El Assad regime forces. All what we know about him is that he is from Upper Egypt governorates. He is not the only Egyptian fighting there nor the first Egyptian got killed there.
|Late Ibrahim El Sheikh May Allah bless his soul|
Speaking about Jihadists , this video found its way online and thanks to tweep Hamam Farouk I found it . A group of Jihadists with Al Qaeda black flag controlling Bab El Hawa crossing between Syria and Turkey claiming that they will establish an Islamist state in Syria !!!
Tonight is the 407th night in our Radio Arabian nights , the 5th night in our tale of “Hagar , Sahar and Egrama”. Tonight it is a bit romantic one.
Now Hagar and Sahar love each where as Egrama can’t stand Hagar and wants Sahar despite she refuses him. Hagar loves playing the lute and he expresses his love to Sahar through its soft melodies that make Sahar cry. Hagar admits that he loves Sahar who does not stop crying because she is afraid from her family , she fears on her lover’s life from Egrama.
Now Hagar is participating in race which if he wins it , he will get 10 camels that he will present a dowry for her Sahar’s hand. Egrama claims to win the race but Sahar and Hagar expose him and Hagar is declared the winner of the race. Later Egrama escaped from a fight with Hagar as usual but Egrama went and told Sheikh Wael Bin Kanaan that Hagar was flittering with his daughter Sahar , the thing that made him furious. Fearing on his daughter’s

Update : The Egyptian Olympic committee chairman General Mohamed Ali is telling Nike to sue the agent over fake kit !!
General Ali denies any previous knowledge about the matter in his statements to AOE Sports despite on the other hand Nike's sole Agent in Egypt say that he sent to the committee two letters warning it for that kit !! They even offered to give the delegation free kit for the sake of Egypt and the committee ignored them !!
Of course General Ali is defending his decision claiming that he did not know that the kit his committee chose was fake !! "All Nike products in the Egyptian Market are made in China. They all have the same logo. How can you know !!??" The former police general said to Ahram Online !!!
It is worth to mention that for decades the Olympic committee was headed by Susan Mubarak´s brother runaway Mounir Thabet.
I am too angry but I am not shocked or surprised , this is the result of old bureaucracy and neglect.I do not understand why the Egyptian Olympic committee does not spend 1/3 of what the Egyptian Football Federation spent on those losers playing football.
Already I wanted to write a big post celebrating our Olympic delegation which is considered the biggest since Los Angeles Olympics with the biggest Arabic women representation in the history of the Olympics.

Wishing all the luck and success to our wonderful boys and girls who are trying to make us happy.
By the way you can follow this amazing list of Egyptian athletes on twitter for live coverage from London. You should also follow this account "Olympic Egypt" to follow the news of our delegation in London.Here is Egypt's Profile in 2012 Olympics website

Tonight is the 408 of our Radio Arabian nights as well our 6th night in our tale “Hagar , Sahar and Egrama”.
Now Hagar and Sahar , the young lovers seem to face the traditions of old tribes from denouncement and so on especially after what Egrama , Hagar’s rival told Sheikh Wael Ibn Kanaan that Hagar is flirting with Sahar which means a scandal for him and the tribe.
At the same Hagar and his father were in their way to Ibn Kanaan in order to ask his daughter’s hand in marriage but they found him storming their house telling them that after what Hagar did to his daughter , either they leave the tribe or he will leave. The furious man did not listen to what they had said insisting that Hagar has scandalized him and his daughter.
Ibn Hagar refused to leave the tribe , the water and land suggesting instead to ask the judgment of the tribe’s high priest. High priest Fariouz tells them in a dramatic voice that the second prophecy of Sahar’s birth has been fulfilled : She made the tribe spilt but sooner she will unite them.
Now the priest says his judgment : Wael Ibn Kanaan to leave the tribe.
Ibn Kanaan and his people headed in a caravan for the unknown searching for some oasis to camp but sooner they found some riders coming the way. The riders turn to be the knights of King Kaood who want water. One of them expresses his admiration with Sahar.The name of King Kaood made Wael and Sahar uncomfortable to the level that he gathered all the men in the caravan to see what they can do. During their meeting , something happened , someone showed up.
Tomorrow we will know what happened.
You can refresh your memory and remember what happened in previous nights here. for what happened in last episodes here.
Sorry for the late post as I am bit tired.
Here is the 409th night of our Arabian Radio night , our 7th night in the Hagar , Sahar and Egrama saga.
Now the knights of King Kaood wants to buy Sahar as a salve for the King and the fight erupts between the knights and the caravan of Wael Ibn Kanaan. Sooner back to the Ibn Kanaan tribe land , a man arrives to inform the rest of the tribe to tell them that the caravan was attacked. Terrifying enough we know that the caravan was massacred and Sahar was kidnapped. Hagar decided to head and to save back his beloved Sahar yet the rest of his tribe is afraid of fighting King Kaood.
Back at the king’s palace , the knight presents Sahar as salve to the king. Despite Sahar does not stop crying , she made it clear to the king that she is not salve but rather a free woman who was kidnapped. Of course the restless king does not care and decides to teach her a lesson of obedience through torture !!

The latest clashes between the Rohingya Muslims "One of the most prosecuted minorities in Burma" and Buddhists in Sittwe area , Rakhine State took place after the rape and murder of Buddhist when Buddhists attacked the Muslims in retaliation from a month ago. According to official records 10 Muslims were killed on June 3rd, 2012 and not less than 80 were killed throughout the month.Whole villages of were burned from both sides equally unfortunately. Just like any dictatorship , the military junta helped in spreading the violance , nothing better than divide conquer. Thousands of Rohingya People had to flee the country and head to Bangladesh through Naf river as well to India and in temporary refugee camps increasing their suffering more and more.The photogallery below shows real photos from there from month ago.
Needless to say many human rights activists are shocked on how the famous icon of democracy Aung San Su Kyi is keeping her mouth shut about the whole Rohingya issue , we need a clear answer from her to know whether she believes that they are Burmese citizens or not like Chinese and Indian communities in the country , ambiguous answers are not good for her image in the world.
|Su Kyi meets a Muslim Rohingya at her Part HQ earlier|
June 2012 before the eruption of sectarian tensions.
|Buddhist monks in Sittwe during the clashes "Reuters"|
Now I finished the facts part let's go to our part of the world.
There was huge social media campaign in our part of the world after knowing the news of the clashes that made me believe that there was ethnic cleansing going in Burma. A systematic social media campaign that unfortunately built its cause on lies , yes lies.
Thanks to the huge Social Network Gulf Salafist machine , there are people who believe that the Buddhists killed in two days not less than 10,000 Muslims !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Already that machine used photos from Asian natural catastrophes like earthquakes and tsunamis as African ethnic fights showing dead bodies of children as evidence from Burma.
|Thsi graphic photo is from Nigeria and you can see|
African soldiers yet it presented as it is from Burma
Muslims burnt alive !!!
|This photos were presented as Muslims killed by Buddhists|
on the Left where as it was taken from China's earthquake !!
But yesterday Sheikh Hafez Salamah , the famous icon of resistance in Suez wants the Muslims to provide the Rohingya Muslims with arms and fighters to stand against the aggression of the Buddhist rulers and their military against the Burmese Muslims.
It is very serious matter when it comes from man like Sheikh Hafez with influence among Salafists in Egypt. Taliban Pakistan which is regarded internationally as terrorist group has also threatened the military Junta and Burma in general over the Rohingya issue.
Of course personally I think these threats will harm the Muslims more in Burma as we deal with restless criminal junta by the end of the day. Shall we see Taliban targeting Buddhist temples to the end of their usual actions !!?? This is what I am afraid of.
I did not like already when the matter turned in to a virtual crusade not only against the Burma Junta regime and Buddhist monks but Buddhism with any prior knowledge , in fact there was huge misinformation spread throughout the social and also the mainstream media starting from the fact that the Arakan is actually a Muslim state when actually Muslims are the minority !! It was once a Muslim state hundreds of years ago for God sake.
In the past weeks , you would see strange stuff on #SaveArakan and #Arakan hashtag in Arabic and English very night. Everyday you find fake photos from all around Asia as if it was from Arakan and everyday you ask them to check their info and you got attack.
|Beautiful Rohingya girl|
Despite I am angry from what has been happened to the Burmese Rohingya Muslims , I am furious from the Buddhist monks from their disgusting behaviour and pro-democratic icon Aung Suu Kyi on her silence yet something make me feel unease how the Gulf Salafist machine acted in spreading the cause using false photos to mobilize hundreds of thousands if not of millions of Muslims in the Arab world using social media.
That machine did not move in that way during the Lebanese war or Gaza war when I remember , I felt as if we are being directed to a fight without any prior knowledge about a country called for Burma. It is like let those kids who turned the Middle East upside down target their anger to Burma to get rid from their junta. I do not know may be it is a feeling as I do not trust the sectarian Salafist Gulf media machine at all and whoever stands behind it.
By the way I hope that Arabs stands for the rights of the Badoon in Kuwait in the same way they are standing for the Rohingya Muslims , there are thousands of Arab Muslims in Kuwait who are not recognized as citizens , stateless suffering in one of the most richest countries in the world !!
Nevertheless what is happening to Rohingya people is a crime should be stopped , it should be stopped through facts and not through lies.
I do not know why our Olympic committee does not think about a better outfit for our athletes ,at least women athletes inspired by our folklore when we have famous fashion designer Shahira Mahrez
The ceremony had beautiful scenes like the women athletes of Saudi Arabia and the beautiful Libyan flag.
|Saudi women athletes for the first time|
|Libyan flag is back again|
All what I can about is that Danny Boyle deserves an OSCAR for this ceremony. It was great.
Sorry for the delay as I was watching the London 2012 Olympics Opening ceremony. Here is the 410th night of our Arabian Radio night , our 8th night in the Hagar , Sahar and Egrama saga. This episode is very interesting for real guys , new action , new magic.
As Hagar starts his quest to save his beloved Sahar from captivity , he got one companion in his trip : The man who informed the tribe about the massacre Sheikh Wael Ibn Kanaan’s caravan and captivity of Sahar. During a rest at an Oasis , Hagar between to talk with that man whom he wanted to know more about him. Hagar wanted to know more about him and the only thing our mysterious man can tell him was that his tale was similar to Hagar’s love , he had been there. “My story is your story” this is what the mysterious man told him. The man asked Hagar for water yet as soon as Hagar went to get Water from the well , the man disappeared yet a cat suddenly appeared.
The cat drank and wanted to accompany Hagar but he refused and decided to throw it away. And yes suddenly a giant Jinn appears to him angrily telling him that he killed his son and he will take him to the Jinns kingdom in order to be prosecuted. You do not need to guess that that mysterious man who informed the tribe about Sahar’s capture and accompanied Hagar was a Jinn as he turned in to Cat
Already among the popular beliefs in Egypt that cats sometimes are believed to jinns , I think it is universal theme when it comes to cats especially black cats.
Back to King Kaood , we know that his men failed to tame our Sahar to the level that the king decided to get rid of her … through sending her as gift to King Seksek in order to stop him for a possible alliance with the Nile Knight , his nemesis.
You can refresh your memory and remember for what happened in last episodes here.
Despite the economic conditions in Egypt and the fact that the government and new elected president are running behind investments to save our economy we found out that the Ramadan TV season this year is the most expensive one in the Egyptian TV history.
According to news reports published in the past week :
The Ramadan season in TV is usually the busiest in Egypt and in the Arab world in general. Of course we taught our dear Arabs this tradition unfortunately where people do nothing after Iftar except sitting in front of the TV for 30 days !!
In market language , in the past 16 months we got over 10 private channels including channels that are actually networks with huge funding God only knows their sources like CBC and Al Nahar. “Which are actually owned by former Mubarak’s regime men”
These channels create demand and ready to pay to get exclusive products which in our case simply TV series so it is not a big surprise to find huge number of TV series in one season like that.
Of course some believe that this is bad as all that money is spent on soap operas but when you think about it again actually this money is good for our economy as this is part of our entertainment sector , from the services sector in our GDP. You should think about the fact that TV soap operas are sold to Arab TV channels from the Gulf to the Ocean.
Already before the coup of 1952 cinema production in Egypt was one of the main sources of income right after the cotton export. Just imagine how many houses are open because this sector and you will know that it is not bad but rather a good thing in such bad economic situation.
Hopefully other services sectors in Egypt will catch up with the entertainment and TV production in Egypt.
By the way for the first time in the Arab world as well in the World you can watch the Ramadan TV soap operas with no silly commercial breaks online on YouTube. In cooperation with Google and YouTube and bunch of channels and producers we got : Youtube.com/Ramadan.
I think we are competing the American networks that post its full soap operas on YouTube now with all that TV shows and soap operas only made for one month !! There is live broadcast for TV channels from Egypt and Arab world if you are interested in watching them alive.
By the way if I recommend , you should watch TV series “The Escape” written by dear friend and famous writer Balel Fadl and starring Karim Abdel Aziz. A mix of politics and drama with a little comedy dosage that tackles the working class outside Cairo as well the practices of state security during the days of Mubarak frankly and clearly.
BY the way I have noticed that there are 3 soap operas about thugs and thuggery as well the amount of obscenities said and violence against women in the soap operas are horrible and incredibly increasing.
And Hagar has been transferred to the Jinn’s village after killing one of them , he is freaking out of course after seeing the strangest creatures from Jinn with strange eyes, tails and horns. Now in front of the Jinn’s king , Hagar is being told that he killed his “Qareen”. Of course you do not need to guess that the cat that he threw away last night was actually his Jinn “Qareen”
Now this interesting because the “Qareen” is from the disputed characters in Islam and Arab culture in general. It is widely belief that it is the human’s Jinn evil twin that can posse him in some times and encourage him to do evil stuff. The “Qareen” is old in our Egyptian/Arab/Culture and I think it exist in several cultures across the world as well. You can read more about it here from Arabic wikipedia. “Qareen” refers to a friend and a companion in Arabic
Back to Hagar who is going to die in the King of Jinn’s court from fear , at the same he was being confronted by the crime he did not know that he committed in a very scary mood , his strange companion shows up alive. Oddly enough his companion’s name is Sahar !! The companion is the one who informed him that his beloved Sahar was kidnapped.
Things got stranger when the Jinn companion tells Hagar that his fiancée is named Hagar too. We know from that companion that for every baby boy in the humans , there will be a girl Qareen like a sister for him in the Jinn world and vice versa for the baby girl in the humans world. Thus Human Hagar got a sister Qareen called Hagar and Jinn Sahar is a brother Qareen to human Sahar. We knew that there is parallel world in the Jinn universe equal to th human world with wars and fights and so. Jinn Hagar , the love of Jinn Sahar was kidnapped.
Anyhow Jinn Sahar tells human Hagar to get some sleep because tomorrow morning he should head to King Kaood’s and play his lute , the lute will allegedly protect him.
Back to the human world and the castle of King Kaood , we found out that Sahar got an alley , her torturer auntie “Shabshab” aka Slippers who told her that many things can change in a day and night. She convinced her that she would go with guards to the Seksek place and her beloved Hagar will save her.
You can refresh your memory and remember for what happened last night here.
Speaking about magic Shuhuzade is back with her riddles to her hubby and it seems that the royal court’s belly dancer Samia wants to get rid of her in order to marry the king , thus she put a spell on the King’s apple. After taking couple of bites , the king sees Shuhuzade as monkey and was on the verge of order Masurur , his executioner to chop off her head but likely Shushu tells him a riddle which I do not know its answer !!
Now these beautiful and brave women athletes are being attacking madly and disgustingly by radicals in their own country in a very sick way that have reached that have reached to calling them whores !!
Last week we found some sick Saudi man posting a twitter hashtag in Arabic called “Olympics_Whores” which he had to apologize for after being attacked online.
Now other radicals in the Kingdom have launched today another sick hashtag in Arabic called “Those Saudi girls in the Olympics do not represent me” started by a man called Khaled Al Saqabi last night attacking those girls once again !! How dare they participate in running in front of men !!!
Strangely those girls are modest enough and wear veil !!
Is not it enough that one of them may withdraw because she can not compete in Hijab , now they are being attacking for participating in the Olympics by Saudis once again !!!? Is not enough that all world delegation made women in the advance except Saudi Arabia !?
|Sarah Attar in the countries' parade|
As a Muslim and as an Arab , as a woman these ladies represent me Zeinobia , the Egyptian. These Saudi athletes may not get medals but they broke a taboo and prove that Saudi women can compete in the Olympics.
BY the way I am so proud that Ibtihaj Mohamed , the African American fencer is representing the USA in the Sabre fencing competition.
|Food supply for Iftar heading to East bank "1973"|
The only two news sources in Egypt speaking about the matter are : Al Shorouk newspaper “Ar” and Ahram Gate “Ar” that mentioned the names of Chinese warships according to a security official source in Suez Canal authority. Of course in Egypt now you can not trust any source what so ever.
This news created an uproar and anger among Syrians and Egyptians alike. Syrians are angry on how Egypt is betraying them and Egyptians are angry from Morsi on how he betrayed them and let the warships pass cursing him and SCAF as well MB alike. The MB divided on two section : One section justifying the decision saying that Morsi can not break international treaties “Despite during the Iraq invasion , MB said Mubarak should break the treaties” and the other section was angry from Morsi cursing him.
The climax of the MB anger when the Freedom and Justice Party and Muslim brotherhood issued a statement against the decision saying Suez canal and Egyptian economy to hell if it were on the expense of our Syrian brothers. “Nasser would be happy to see that the MB is keeping his legacy of using big words alive”
Now despite I am in vacation trying to keep myself away from politics , I could not keep myself from searching about the truth. I could not find any single international source speaking about Chinese warships heading to Syria . I know that China could not move single warship that far to the Mediterranean without catching the attention. The only thing I found about Chinese navy suspicious movements in South China disputed area with the Philippines. “ More from AFP”
Still luckily in Ahram Gate report the names of the Chinese warships were mentioned “two of them were actually misspelled and one was correct” , thus I traced them. It turns out that destroyer “Qingdao” accompanied frigate “Yantai” and comprehensive supply ship “Weishanhu” in Chinese naval escort flotilla “11th taskforce” that departed from the city of Qingdao in China to secure and escort 6 merchant ships from China , Singapore , Norway , South Korea and Portugal through the Gulf of Aden and nearby stretches of Indian oceans.
As you know the Somali pirates have won notorious repetition that NATO countries , China, Russia , Japan and India are having military vessels patrolling that huge area of Indian ocean. This is the 11th time China participate in escorting the merchant vessels. Now it was easy to track them for awhile. On July 1,2012 the Chinese warships flotilla headed by “Qingdao” reached the port of Salalah in Oman which was the 4th and last round of in port rest and replenishment in that taskforce.
|The 12th Chinese Naval escort force|
On July 17th,2012 the commander of the 11th Chinese naval escort force met with EU counterpart in the western waters of the Gulf of Aden. On July 18th ,2012 the Chinese naval taskforces liberated a crew of a Taiwanese trawler held for nearly 19 months by Somali pirates and were taken to Chinese naval vessel.
On July 27th,2012 the Chinese 11th Naval taskforce crossed Suez canal in its way to visit both Ukraine and Romania . These are from official Chinese sources. We know when it comes to warfare and politics , official sources should be taken cautiously but this is just a small attempt to find the truth. I am praying to God that fleet would be only visiting Ukraine and Romania. Already Ukraine is now considered a wheat source instead of the States for China. “Interesting fact”
Now it was also spread that that these vessels were heading to participate in joint exercise with Syria,Iran,Russia in Syria. The only source online about joint exercise is none other than FARS news agency which fabricated interviews with Morsi before.I can not trust FARS news agency. Already I do not know what kind of joint exercise these countries will allegedly have in Syria when El Assad is losing his control in Aleppo day after day !!
In Russian Pravda the Russian Defense ministry officials denied the reports claiming that there will be Syrian-Iranian-Chinese-Russian maneuvers despite the huge departure of Russian Navy warships to Syrian coastline earlier this month. You should read that Pravda piece. “Yes it is the PRAVDA”
From amateur military point of view , I do not know how these warships will save El Assad when his army is having house to house guerilla warfare on the ground in Syria !! Of course the worst case scenario if these warships are heading to Syria for real is to supply El Assad and his army but again are not air transportation is much faster to save his evil ass !!?? Organized armies can not stand a guerilla warfare in towns , a lesson well known to everybody.
Anyhow what we are witnessing now in Syria is no longer a revolution but rather international world power class one fight using regional conflicts in a very explicit way with no respect to blood or human loses.
Strangely the National Syrian Council “NSC” will continue its talks in Cairo to form a transitional government next Tuesday. Hopefully they will reach to something serious this time.
Now speaking from legal perspective Egypt can stop any ship passing regardless of its nationality except in the case of war between Egypt and country where that ship belongs to through the Suez canal because of the Convention of Constantinople. Still if Egypt suspects that the cargo in those ships will be used in genocides , it can use a legal exist represented in one of the UN charters about Naval transportation and having the right to stop the advance of vessels if carrying arms used in aggression and conflict. I do not remember the charter but the international law experts may know it better than me.
Anyhow I am praying that these Chinese warships are visiting Ukraine and Romania for real and get the hell out of the Mediterranean without passing by Syria. No Egyptian will accept that Syrians will be harmed because of the canal.
Tonight we will not have one night but rather two nights in order to catch up with Ramadan in correct order. Tonight we will have the 10th and 11th nights of our tale “Hagar,Sahar and Egrama”. Tonight we are having a double bill.
First we listen to the 412th night of our Arabian Radio nights which is our 10th night of our tale.
In this episode Our dear Sahar reaches to the Kingdom of the Seksek king , the old weak man with corrupted court who takes drugs “especially cannabis” to feel young. For Arabic speakers you should listen on how Zozo Nabil “Scheherazade” describes how King Kaood sent Sahar as a virgin to the weak king.
On the other hand our knight Hagar reaches to King Kaood’s castle disguised as a lute player offering his talent to teach the slave girls but of course Sahar is not at the slaves’ quarter.
The following night is the 413th of our Arabian radio nights, our 11th night from our tale.
The envoy of King Kaood , Sheikh Masoud arrives to the court of King Seksek in order to present King Kaood’s gift , Sahar but instead he is forced to listen to the predictions of King Seksek who believes magic , names,stars and numbers while he is under the influence of cannabis.
According to the stars Sheikh Masoud will be killed and the gift he presented. By the way King Seksek’s assistant’s name is Wakwak.
You will listen in this episode to how hypocrite and sick the court of that king is not to mention how addicted that old king is !!
You can refresh your memory and remember for what happened last night here.
Despite Aleppo’s importance I feel that the world should pay attention to other cities in Syria.
The footage from Deir Ez Zor massacre committed from two days ago is horrible , we are speaking about corpses blown in to pieces including children’s corpses !! “Extremely graphic”
I do not care anymore about international politics , Jihadists, FSA, Kurdish parties, El Assad , Iran , Turkey to the end of this jazz when people are being slaughtered. I am tired of the fact that the world has been ignoring the human tragedy in Syria for nearly 14 months and is insisting on ignoring it !!
BY the way if foreign reporters want to enter Syria , they should contact The Syrian Revolution 2011 Facebook Page , of course they should be extremely careful and cautious. Interestingly enough that FB page is using the photo of late journalist Chris Hondros who was killed in Misrata , Libya last summer !!!!!!! So yes journalists should extra cautious !!
According to an official statement sent to the Egyptian ministry of foreign affairs by its Israeli counter that ad was produced by NGO for the internet only and that’s why it is in English and not in Hebrew !! The Egyptian ministry of foreign objected already about this ad and its insult to our head of state.
Anyhow the first son of Egypt unleashed a huge attack on Israel and Jews defending his father as well Islam following this ad on Facebook last week. Dr. Ahmed Mohamed Morsi , the eldest son of our president who works as a physician in one of the hospitals in Saudi Arabia wrote a status on his Facebook account
To those behind the Israeli Zionist insulting ad to Dr. Mohamed Morsi , we the Free Egyptians will support the resistance powers in Palestine through praying , donation and boycotting.And
And the age of dependency is over , we do not have nothing to you except the shoeAnd it goes on like this.
After few hours we found his FB account was closed then it was opened with no trace to that angry status. Now Dr. Ahmed is claiming that Facebook administration has suspended his account because of his status which it removed.
Of course as a first son , I think he should be careful now on every word he writes and how to choose your words carefully.
Nevertheless Yair Netanyahu , Bibi’s son also used to post anti-Islamic and anti-Arab post in his FB profile.
Now I do not know what Dr. Ahmed will say when he sees that his father sent a complimentary letter to Shimon Perez , the Israeli president who sent earlier Ramadan complimentary letter .

Well regardless of what you think these are protocols procedures and as long as you have official relations with Israel you should stick. Protocols and corresponding letters got rules as old as God knows what , you can not ignore them.
|Zoom in to read cover letter|
The Egyptian presidency official spokesperson Yasser Ali denies that President Morsi sent anything !! Unfortunately the letter of Egyptian embassy in Tel Aviv is officially stamped !!
