Egyptian Remembrance day

This is an invitation for all Egyptians inside and outside to make the 5th of June every year as the Egyptian Remembrance Day just like the British Remembrance Day to remember our POWs who were killed during the war . Let’s turn our defeat day in to a day to remember those who were killed in one of the modern history worst genocides.

Let’s go on this day with our children and in our hands an original Egyptian Red Rose that drunk from the water of the Nile and blossomed in the soil of Egypt to put it on the memorial of the unknown soldier memorial in Medinat Nasr and in every soldier memorial in every Goveronate in Egypt

Let’s put in our clothes a poppy lapel pin just like the British do , Let’s wear it for a week from the 5th of June to the 10th of June as a tribute ofpoppy respect to those Men who were killed away from their beloved one but not away from their home

Let’s make this day for the POWs ,it is not important to wait for the government recognition , already the government is still investigating all those years despite the survivals ,despite the mass graves , despite the eye witnesses and despite the confession of those who committed the crimes

Big fight in the assembly because of the POWs

Unfortunately I missed watching this session of the Egyptian assembly on air yesterday , now I guess it was edited to remove all what happened in it .Yesterday Foreign minister “Ahmed El-Gait” attended the meeting with the assembly members to discuss the updates of the POWs case and to discuss his statement about it , yet it didn’t go easy at all , it turned in to some kind of war of the world between the foreign minister and the MPs to become a historical session as the for the first time a foreign minister in Egypt would face such attack in the assembly.

The MPs accused the minister of ignoring the case where as the minister defended his position explaining the difficulty of the case as we can’t go to the international criminal court because it doesn’t look in cases that took place before the year 2002 , fact that is mentioned in the law section

Since then the arguments began ,the minister also hinted to fact I didn’t know before that if we want a special criminal court like the court of the war crimes that happened in Yugoslavia needs a special order for the security council and of course this would be like a mission impossible as the minister hinted.

They are studying the case !!

According to this news in Arabic president Mubarak gave his order to the Foreign ministry to study “The exact meaning in Arabic” the POWs Case with its both legal and political parts

This was the statement of Foreign minister in front of the Foreign and Arabic affairs committees in the assembly yesterday

He also said very important statement I believe it should be highlighted

Having Peace with Israel doesn’t mean that we will give up our dignity or rights

This really good and promising but I hope it would go beyond the “study”

Yom HaShoah of Egyptian POWs

Yesterday Israel celebrated the Yom HaShoah “The Remembrance day for the Holocaust and Heroism”.

I have nothing this and I am not from the camp that dedicated his or her to suspect that the Holocaust took place despite the fact I do believe it took place but in less number

Anyhow I wonder when we will have our “Yom Hashoah” in Egypt to remember the Holocaust victims of Egyptian POWs in 1967 , oh yes we had our own holocaust back in 1967

In Al-Arish and in Gaza cities as places

Egyptian POWs as the victims

and those who celebrated the Yom HaShoah yesterday the 16th of April as the victimizers

Please read this part from the Al-Arish people testimonies’ section and remember our officers and Soldiers who were burned alive and till now got now museum or a special day for remembrance

Bad News and Good News

I have got Bad News and Good News as I think I will start with the Bad news before the Good news as I always do

The bad news I found out that Egypt can’t use the international criminal court not because it doesn’t prosecute in the crimes that took place before 2002 but because Egypt already is not a member , The Egyptian government signed it but didn’t ratify on it till now ,same thing for Israel who accused the ICC to be influenced by some countries !!

You can check the updates in the Law section

The good news is better , in fact it is a scoop in my humble opinion

The USS Liberty again whose crew came supporting Israel and left attacking the IDF and its governemtn till now

The files and the records of the USS Liberty may hold the solid evidence that proves our men in Al-Arish were killed in what is considered in the international laws as crime wars , already it is proved in the congress records that there were mass murders occured against the Egyptian POWs Yes it is ,and you can check it here in this website for the first time in an Egyptian Website

The Egyptian POWs … Blood that didn’t dry yet !!

A very interesting article that reflects what the majority of Egyptian thinks and feels regarding the Egyptian POWs

It is written in Arabic by Mr. Ahmed Marzok and it is published in the Egyptian News portal Filbalad , which is one of the most popular and successful fast growing websites not only in Egypt but in the Arab world

I highy recommend reading it

I will try to translate it , I won’t depend upon the bad google Arabic / English translation because lots of words will lose their meaning

 By the way expect more updates soon as there is an important good discovery I found in the USS liberty incident

10 Billion for the 1967 POWs ,but what about the 1956

More than 20 members in The Egyptian Shura Council requested the discussion of the Egyptian Official policy regarding the 1967 Egyptian POWs issue. They also wanted to study the possibility of having a suite case in front of the Egyptian courts against Ban Eliezer , the minister of housing in Israel and the former Shaked unit, who was accusing of murdering 250 Egyptian POWs during the six days war, they wanted to know the policy of the Ministry of Justice in having law suites by the general attorney against Eliezer according to the panels law if the massacre happened on the Egyptian land

They demanded too Israel to pay 10 billion American dollar for the 1967 POWs who were murdered by the IDF in Al-Arish.

The head of the Shura Council “Sawfot El-Sherif” sent these requests to the Arabic affairs and Security committee

Well this is fine and good but what about those who were not killed in Al-Arish ,those who were killed across Sinai not to mention those great men who were murdered in the 1956 Suez War !!!

Updates

Sorry for the lack of the updates in the past last couple of weeks I got busy with the referendum and the Arab Summit , the good thing that I got more and more coming in the way insh Allah (SWT)

  1. The photos section in the 1967 is opened , from the photos you can see the huge numbers of the POWs and the humiliation they suffered from.
  2. The Laws section is updated with new information regarding the Camp David accords and the International crime court.
  3. The Al-Arish People testimonies section is also updated with several testimonies that go back to 1995

There is also a news update from Egypt regarding the official reaction , Mofid Shaab, the minister of legal affairs of the assembly said yesterday that Egypt requested the red cross to investigate the case officially, this statement came after accusations of the parliament members to the government and the foreign minister of being lazy
