Happy Martyr Day to all Egyptians. Today is our National Martyr Day which commemorate the martyrdom of General Abdel Moneim Riyad on the Egyptian front on 9 March 1969. This day we will should pay respect to all our martyrs who died and killed for the sake of this nation and its people throughout history.
The Admin of the SCAF official FB page sent a salute to Egypt’s martyrs from the armed forces as well the #Jan25 Revolution on Thursday.
Tahrir newspaper’s header included today a beautiful graphic showing the pictures of late General Abdel Moneim Riyad and martyrs from January 25th Revolution “Mina Daniel and late Sheikh Emad Effat”.
Egyptian POWs website is back after nearly a year or less from technical problems and as neglect from my side to be honest. I could not find time to fix these problems except now.
A lot of things took place and happened since the last time I posted here whether in Egypt or the Middle East when it comes to POWs news. Aside from the Galid Shalit and Palestinian POWs swap and from shocking POWs treatment in Libya after the revolution , there are some updates to our file , the Egyptian POWs file.More dark secrets have been revealed through out the past year
Tomorrow is the National Martyr’s day in Egypt and today Field Marshal Tantawy and the military commanders of SCAF and Egyptian army zones put flowers on the tombs of the Unknown soldiers throughout the country. I wish that our Egyptian people will do this next year on their own. I think we should start with schools and teach our students to pay respect to our fallen heroes in wars and in our revolutions as well.
