For those mothers

Yesterday Egypt celebrated its national day for Mother , the mother Queen Farida and Princess Farialday ,that day which the minister of social solidarity decided to rename it to become “The Family day” ,well it will be forever the “Mother day”.

Anyhow I did not write anything regarding that day yesterday because I was so tired but I think I should write something now , I will not write like the same old composition topics we used to take as home works in the school whether in English or Arabic  for example Write about your mother , the importance of the mother , the mother in religion ..etc

All of us adore our mothers , no question here

But I will speak about Mothers whom I should remind you with on this occasion. 

The mother of the 13 years old girl who was killed from two weeks ago by the IDF on the Egyptian Palestinian borders , the girl who was killed while she was playing … This is a mother we should not forget.

The Egyptian mothers who can’t find the medicine or even bread for their children because they can’t afford the prices, those mothers who sell their organs to feed their children.

The mothers of the Egyptian POWS who are still waiting to get back the rights of their sons for decades now

The mothers of those who were on the broad of Salam 98 who are also still waiting for justice.

The Palestinian mothers who are watching their children die on a daily basis.

The Iraqi mothers who are living in the fear that their children may not return back from where ever they are .

The Saudi mother of Fouad El-Farahan , the Saudi Blogger , who raised him to be patriot enough to dream for a better future for his country.

And of course the great Syrian mother of Tarek , the Syrian blogger , this fantastic woman raised him alone as a single mom whose husband was taken by the security forces from 20 years ago , now her only son was taken also away from her and this time because of some comment he wrote on the web .

These mothers we should remember on this occasion , even if it was late , sorry it is never too late to remember those great women , those great mothers

A red rose for all our heroes in their day

Today it marks the Martyr Day, today the 9th of March we celebrate in Egypt the memory of all those great men who sacrifice their lives  for Egypt , for all those great warriors who fall in our battles for freedom and honour , for liberty and greatness , those warriors who are the living proof that we have the best warriors in the world

A Beautiful red rose with the colour of blood to all those great men


Some people forget this day but I remember it

By the way the 9th of March marks the martyrdom of General Abd El-Monaim Riyad ,the Chief of Staff on the Egyptian Front at the Suez Canal in 1969 , this great man was a brilliant military general and it is enough to know that this man in the six days war made some small victories in the Jordanian front “he was heading it” . Already if that man were heading the Egyptian army in 1967 ,surely the result was different , unfortunately he was not the favourite type field marshal Amar respected !!!

P.S There is something strange in Egyptian National TV , they have suddenly remembered it , the TV presenters are wearing red rose !! Since when the National Egyptian became so patriot !!??

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.

egyptianow-apThe court ordered the Egyptian foreign ministry to prepare a list with the names and numbers of the POWs killed by the IDF.The importance of that rule is that it is an official obligation on the Foreign

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

Still, I doubt that the Foreign ministry will obey the court’s order and it will not be the first time nor the first ministry or governmental authority that will ignore a court’s order. By the way about the list with names and numbers of the POWs, they can be easily done with the records of the reported missing officers and Soldiers from 1956 and 1967 from the Egyptian army archives.
