Mossad Abu Fagr is an Egyptian blogger, writer and novelist from Sinai who is currently in jail for years now for no announced official reason.
This website does not get involved in the political issues of Egypt unrelated to our issue : The lost rights of POWs in our history but it has to speak about Mossad this time. It is a not a secret that the conditions between the locals in Sinai and the regime back in Cairo are not that good and solid due to the misunderstanding and short vision of the Egyptian regime with my all respect to it. The locals in Sinai ,especially those in Al Arish were those who buried our dead Egyptian POWs after being killed in the streets of the city by the IDF, they were the ones who gave shelter to those officers and soldiers who managed to flee from that on going carnage , they treated them if they were injured and they even helped them to return back to motherland from the occupied land despite that would cost them their lives and the lives of their beloved ones.
I believe it is the least thing we can do is we give to who those buried our men in their land and protected them all those years the right of land ownership. These people up till now remember very well where our men were buried and in fact they share the locations of the graves from generation to another least they forget and die without letting the world know about it.
Mossad was calling for that right among other rights and this is why I am speaking him on this day.
Giving the locals at Sinai the rights they want is the least thing we can do for those Egyptians who are ready to testify in front of the whole world about what happened there from more than 40 years.
