An Apology To Our POWs

First of all I truly apologize for not updating this website as it should , there is no excuse I can find to justify my neglect to this important website and its noble cause especially that there were very relevant and important news in the past months.

Well after this is not the first apology I will declare in this post because I have to apology to all our POWs in our wars with Israel especially in 1967 in specific those who were killed by Shaked in a cold blood. I have to apology to all our POWs and their families , in fact all of us should apologize to our POWs because this is the least thing we could do when our elected president Hosni Mubarak congratulated BenElizer on his 75 birthday instead of suing him in front of the ICC !!

I could not and can’t believe such horrible news !! What made it worse is that we had waited the Egyptian presidency to deny this news but it did not which means the Israelis did not lie and Mubarak did actually congratulate this war criminal !!

What About the Families of our missing Soldiers !!?

The families of the Israeli soldiers who went missing in 1973 have visited Egypt last Monday to visit the Gulf of Suez to lay flowers in tribute to their missing men. This visit was not announced in Egypt and preceded the visit of Israeli Prime Minister to Cairo on last Tuesday.

I am just wondering when the Egyptian regime will treat the families of our missing soldiers in 1967 in the same way with respect.

Remembering the 1956 War POWs

Yesterday the world celebrated the Armistices day aka the remembrance day in several countries around the world like the UK and the States. Also in the Middle East Lebanese party and militia Hezbollah celebrated and remembered its men who were killed in action in the wars against the Israeli occupation to South Lebanon.

On this day I remember all the Egyptians who were killed and were captured during the 1956 Suez War especially in Port Said ; the great city which was nearly destroyed in the Anglo-French attack.

Also I will not ever forget those great Egyptian POWs who were slaughtered in a cold blood in Sharm Sheikh by the IDF.

I remember today our POWs in 1967 and 1973 too.

May be the government has forgotten our POWs , our heroes and our veterans but some of us have not forgotten them at all.

Never Seen Before Photos

During the times of wars it is a normal thing that the news and the photos coming from the war zone is filtered , media is very powerful double edged weapon in time of war that can affect the people’s spirit whether positively or negatively , if you search in our modern history you will find out that during the times of war even the biggest democracies in the world had to censor and filter the news and photos coming from the war zone especially those issued by the enemy.

For that particular reason I am not surprised or shocked that the Nasser regime did not publish the photos the Israelis released to the wire services from humiliating shots to our Egyptian POWs during the captivity.There are many photos in this website Egyptians have not seen for decades , they only heard about their details and circumstance from the 1967 veterans who survived that shocking defeat , for sure the veterans accounts were even much horrible than those photos.

The Start of the Naksa

Naksa was the term the Nasserite Regime used to describe the Six days war defeat to lessen its effect.
Naksa means in Arabic “Set-back” ,the word “Defeat” was not used then.
Today is the memorial of the Naksa , our own definition of the six days war. Today from 42 years ago a human tragedy has started in Sinai where innocent people were killed brutality against international and even human laws and moral.
Today fro 42 years ago the agony of the Egyptians POWs has started and up till now it has not finished yet.
It will finish when those who killed those innocent men are punished just like the international laws say so

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
