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

Please Send this Email to these addresses

Dear Nowarah Nagam , the daughter of two of my favorite icons in Egypt “Ahmed Fouad Nagam” and “Safinaz Kadem” made a wonderful move to encourage the people not to forget the POWs case again , to be active , even in the weakest way , by sending emails to dozens of international personalities from Congress men,organizations and TV networks

So here I am requesting from you the same thing just copy and past the following Email body

In 1967, in an ugly war based on fraud and trickery, Israel had managed to inflict defeat to Arabs, and captured a number of Egyptian fighters, tortured them, subjecting them to humiliating and inhumane conditions. After that, Israeli forces killed 250 of them in the most insulting and brutal way, violating all international and even Divine laws and norms. Israel did not comply to one item of the conventions of the United Nations concerning the treatment of prisoners. In a blatant defiance of the international community and all humanitarian values, Israel has recently published a documentary presenting the worst crime committed in the twentieth century, and had reviewed all the details of its crime against Egyptian soldiers, flouting the feelings of the Arab people, and aimed at undermining security and stability in the Arab countries in general, and in Egypt in particular, which is committed to the peace agreement concluded with Israel, but Israel did not seem willing to commit its part. We the Arab people, we call on the international community to move to deter Israel and the demands in a nutshell : • The international tribunal has to investigate the killing of Egyptian POWs in 1967. • Accountability all those responsible for the massacre. • Israel is to pay the necessary compensation to the families of the victims of the hand, the Egyptian State on the other hand showing respect for the prestige and status. • That Israel would offer a formal apology to the government and people of Egypt for crimes perpetrated against our prisoners. • That Israel would offer a formal apology to the government and people of Egypt on their own offer the viewer and the insistence of painful thoughts. • Prohibits the publishing of those scenes in any channel information into account to the people of Egypt and families of the victims. We also call upon all the honorable lawyers in all parts of the world to embrace our cause and file a lawsuit against Israel, which tramples upon all that is humane and moral and legal. We demand justice that conform to international law, which applies to all world countries except Israel. We wonder, Isn’t it about time for the international community to hold Israel accountable like all countries of the world?

Just the copy the following in the body of the Email , in the subject write down “Egyptian POWs”

In the address well you write copy and paste these

Come on guys we should make more and more noise , we can do it

This is the result ,do something for God Sake

Ok we waited along and our officials are speaking nonsense ,ignoring the solid facts they have under their noses ,and what we got now instead an accusation that Egyptian army killed Israeli POWs in the 1973 war !!

Despite this news will make people laugh especially the military who fought back in 1973 , who know very about the 5 stars treatment the Israeli POWs got but I know that internationally we will find ourselves in the position of the victimizer instead of the victim, the shifting of truth will place and the Zionist lobby is there to help

For God Sake let the remainings of the officers in mass graves out let it speak and scream , let be their DNA .

The Israeli POWs had trips to visit Egypt famous sights when they were in our hospitality !!

President Mubarak at last speaks

At last president Mubarak spoke about the Egyptian POWs after two or three weeks of silence , of course his statements come after the public anger in Egypt regarding this issue grew , same with the Public surprise for his silence all that time.

He spoke in an interview with “Momataz El-Kot” the chief in editor of weekly “Akhabr El-Youm” last Saturday, already Mr. “El-Kot” caused a great anger last week after he underestimated the Massacres and indirectly defended the IDF “don’t even ask!” , the problem of “El-Kot” that he is working in an official state owned newspaper , so anything he writes can be considered state’s opinion regardless of how silly it is .

Of course the interview included other important issues now not less than the POWs case like the constitution amendments.

Anyhow regarding the POWs who are the main concern of this website , this is what the President of Egypt said :

Egypt will  not give up the rights of her sons and martyrs .. We will practice our rights and take all necessary actions if the allegations of killing Egyptian POWs during the war 67 turned to be true, but we need to check all what said on this issue !!

The President added that the blood of our martyrs is not a matter of compromising or giving up

With my respect to all the President and what he said from a very excellent promise that there will be no comprise on the blood of our men and believe on the Israeli side they are taking this statement seriously

but I am surprised that he considered all what happened in 1967 to be allegations that needed to be proved , pardon me but Mr. Hosni Mubarak was in the army ,in the air forces during the 1967 war ,yes he was a teacher in the Air forces school then but all Egyptians knew about the crimes that happened in Sinai , all the people who had a contact with the army and its officers , only you had to go to the nearest military hospital to know from the wounded officers and soldiers how they escaped from the hell.

I don’t know what we need from evidence more than mass graves across Sinai

Another thing ,why only the concentration is limited on the POWs of 1967 , what about the POWs of 1956 , why they are always forgotten despite the fact we have a solid case against the Israeli generals like  Biro who confessed to kill the unarmed civilians and POWs across Sinai in 1956 , is n’t the confession the master of evidence !!??

Today also the foreign Minister of Egypt Mr. Ahmed Abu El-Gat gave some statements to the Middle East News agency , which is the official State News agency in Egypt saying in the context of the President that Egypt won’t give up its right but all what we need is documented authenticated evidence not press reports even from the Israeli government , with my all respect what is more documented and authenticated that mass graves and former soldiers and officers testimonies !!

Fake Shaked documentary !!??

The headlines of the Radio and Television magazine says that the version of the “Rush Shaked” documentary which was given to the Egyptian Foreign ministry from the Israeli Television is faked one.I forgot to say that the Radio and Television magazine is a state owned magazine that follows the ministry of information.

I don’t want to say that I expected this ,the Israeli officials won’t give us the evidence on their guilt in the war easily.

Now I don’t know when the Foreign ministry stops depending upon the Israeli committees of investigations and starts a serious investigation from Egypt itself

Something many of you don’t know , after the 1956 and 1967 POWs massacres came to surface for the first time after decades in 1995 , the Foreign ministry also requested an Israeli investigation to conducted and guess what after 3 years that was in 1998 , the Foreign ministry received the report that denied any incident what so ever despite the confessions of the Israeli Paratroopers in 1956 themselves !!!

Well it seems that the Foreign ministry of Egypt with my all respect to it didn’t learn from its mistake.

Another related news yesterday Al-Arish saw a big protest after Friday’s prayer, hundreds requested the Egyptian government to cut the relations with Israel and also they demanded an international court to be held against who did these horrible crimes against the Egyptian POWs.

Justice for the killed Egyptian POW Petition

 Ok people I will need your help again this and be sure I will need it again

This time it is an English petition made for the Egyptian POWs sent to the UN,U.S Congress and E.U Committee

It is better than nothing

and believe me if I told that I am glad to find it because I wanted to made one by English but I didn’t know what to write in it

After my signature there are now 375 signatures ,I want this number after 24 hours to be doubled , I am not asking you but I am begging windowslivewriterpetitionfordefendingthepowsrights-fe36asra3-copy4.jpgyou on my knees

People this time we must not shut up and forget as we always do ,because one day we will be asked what we had done

This is the weakest faith , this is the most simplest thing you can ever do even if you are not Egyptian but believe in human rights and that those POWs faced war crimes

For Peace and Justice

I said it before if you respect what the Jewish People did to bring justice for their holocaust victims then you must sign this petition

Another thing

There is an update for the Al-Arish people testimonies , those great people who survived all those years to tell what happened in those hot summer months from living hell in 1967, there are more testimonies I down to translate it

Also to there are new testimony from the POWs but to say the truth they are somehow hard and every time I wanted to translate ,I couldn’t because it is hard to imagine it in your mind and can’t feel sad and angry

Petition for defending the POWs rights

This is an Arabic petition to the Head of the lawyers syndication in Egypt  in order to handle the POWs case nationally and internationally

Already I expected  this to happen sooner or later and despite its national flavor it is good to have

Please sigh it because it is important to gather ourselves more and more to get the rights of those innocent people

It is a try

And the one thousand miles walk starts with a mile

Good but it can be better

Ok this is a good sign , but not enough. Yesterday the spokesperson of the Egyptian Presidency Ambassdor Soliman Awad that the presidency is following the file of the Egyptian POWs and already assigned the foreign ministry to follow the case .Also the presidency understands and respects all the public anger for the blood of our POWs

This is a good sigh and for record it is the first since the issue was brought to surface since 1995 but it is not enough

I mean the foreign ministry in Egypt which is assigned from the presidency requested from Israel to investigate the inicdents!! With my all respect to the foreign ministry and its minister but Israel will never lead a serious investigation that will condemn its army in the end and its general and public figures to appear as war criminals

plus I can’t understand why we rely on Israel we got enough evidence for fair and solid accusations according to the international laws

first it happened on Egyptian land

second it is against international laws

third the mass graves and remainings of the bodies are still there and that is enough for accusation

fourth we got testimonies enough to head for the War crimes IJC

fifth it is not about 250 who were killed by Shaked there were thousands in 1967 and 1956

10 O’Clock

Yesterday there was a very important episode from the popular prime Time News show “10 O’clock” on Dream TV 2 ,really a great work they had done in the channel , they hosted former POWs , a historian and a civilian lady from Sinai , who shared their terrible memories , very terrible and sad , I mean it is enough to hear their testimonies in order to open a serious investigation. Any how the good news I succeeded in capturing parts of the episode on my handcam ,yes don’t even ask , so couple of days I will upload the video , already I write down the script of the episode too insh Allah (SWT). The photos appeared in the show were few ,two or three I didn’t see before , I got more photos ,I hate to say also ,there were photos from Gaza in 1956 war that is not related to the 1967 war , I found them in Getty Images before , the good news I succeeded in captured parts of the “Rush Shaked” documentary , it turned out that the Information ministry in Egypt has got a copy that they gave to the Dream channel , also the Foreign ministry received a copy too.

Anyhow ,regarding the updates , well this site is updated daily and I will try to post the updates in the posts here in order to make it more easier to know the updates quickly
