The Supreme Administrative court headed by honorable Judge Ahmed El-Shazly upheld the March 2008 Administrative court’s ruling obliging the Egyptian government to demand the rights of the Egyptian POWs in the 1956 and 1967.

In 2001, a group of  Egyptian POWs families and ex-POWs represented by lawyer and 1973 war veteran Wahid El-Oksori filed a lawsuit in front of the Egyptian administrative court demanding the Egyptian government to investigate the allegations against the Israeli Defense Forces “IDF”.

In March 2008, the administrative court issued its court ruling obliging the Egyptian foreign ministry to investigate the allegations.  Following that court order, the Egyptian government represented in the State Lawsuits authorities

The Egyptian government represented in the State Lawsuits authorities appealed the court ruling in front of the Supreme Administrative court.

Only on 21 January 2018, the Supreme Administrative court made its final verdict rejecting the Egyptian government’s appeal and upholding the 2008 court ruling.

The foreign ministry is officially responsible of the POW Case in Egypt

On the 5th of March 2008, the Administrative court in Cairo issued a historical ruling oblighing the Egyptian foreign ministry to investigate the allegations that the Israeli Defense Forces “IDF” had killed Egyptian POWs in 1956 and 1967.

The importance of that rule is that it is an official obligation on the Foreign ministry.

The ministry should open an immediate investigation in this important case.This court order comes as the end of a very long lawsuit filed against the Egyptian government by the families of the POWs and ex-POWs

The lawyer who filed the Suit is Wahid El-Oksori , the head of Egyptian Arab socialist Party and a veteran officer.

This is very important court order, it does not recognize the crimes but it orders the Foreign ministry to investigate the allegations,it opens the door officially

Important Updates: The complete script of Shaked in English

At last I did it and I translated the Rush Shaked Documentary scriptmenu_17 from Arabic to English so all the people will understand what was said in the controversial Israeli documentary. I translated from the origin Arabic script I found in my Cruel World blog.It is very important because according to it that is the Second Israeli confession of committing crimes against the Egyptian POWs in 1967 after the veterans confessions of committing war crimes in 1956 against our POWs from Militaries and civilians. I am sorry if there were mistakes in the Hebrew names but you must know that all that delay was to check from the names and to write it correctly ,I tried as possible to check from the names several times and some of them from those who appeared in the documentary turned to be from the important officers in the IDF as you will know The documentary and what was said in it are the solid proof against the claims of the director of the same director of the documentary who lied and said that the Egyptians were not mentioned in the documentary !! Well ha can say anything especially when the documentary was never shown again , also it is a solid proof against the claims of the Shaked battalion veterans who denied that they had killed any Egyptian pows during 1967 You can find the script in English here please spread the news Again if you find any mistakes in the Hebrew names please tell me and I will correct them

Exclusive:The way to Atlit

Thanks to our dear friend O2A I was able at last to find Al-Jazeera’s very important documentary “The Way to Atlit” , before there was “Rush Shaked” there was “The Way to Atlit” , the “Way to Atlit” was a special episode from the Al-Jazeera’s famous TV Show “Top secret” which is presented by “Youssry Fouad”

This special episode is very important as it includes Israeli testimonies from historians and veteran officers too from inside Israel , this is beside the Egyptian testimonies from veterans of 1956 and 1967 wars

It is very rare episode and it was hard to find , in fact it is miracle to find it now

You can find it here in the the film section

The Jews celebrate the Yom HaShoah on the 19th of April every year

And We Must celebrate our POWs who were killed in 1956 and in 1967 on the 5th of June Every year

The red cross denial is no proof

I don’t believe the red cross and I don’t care what they say because I have got my people’s testimonies and they can’t be liars , my people for the great people of Sinai ,from Al-Arish who buried the POWs by their hands  and know the place of mass graves till our day

My people from the POWs who survived ,whether those who managed to escape or those who survived the hell of Atlit

If they don’t believe my people I don’t care

They got the Israeli confessions of General Biro in 1956 stating clearly as sun what he did from war crimes  against not military but also Egyptian civilians

They can prove if they want , but they don’t same like the Egyptian regime

Today Egyptian Foreign minister talked in TV on air about this report and he was so nervous and angry in a strange way I don’t why , he kept speaking for himself the revenge of those POWs was taken in 1973 war , well he was speaking for himself not for the majority of the Egyptian people

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.

New testimony

I added today a new Egyptian Military testimony not from a POW but more from a survivor

You can check it here

It is the longest testimony and it is one of the best example of how it was in Sinai in June 1967 and it is the 16th in that section

I am sorry if there is any spelling or grammar mistake in the translation , I still got more testimonies 1995 to be added ,not to mention the photos and videos ,please pardon if I appeared lazy ,I am not.

Of course you noticed that suddenly things are getting quiet , well the best thing that there are others who promised not to forget at least I am one of them.

Officials are speaking in a strange way like they never knew that mass murders happened in six days war ,I mean every vateran in 1967 can tell you two or three stories that confirms the existance of the mass murders

And it is not only the mass murders of 1967 , it is also the mass murder of 1956
