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.
This news is great and it is not the first time it happens , I think Michel Messiah is behind this court order . I wish Egyptian activists in UK would do the same regarding the POWs cases
I also wish that the British government and the Israeli government will fail in changing these laws.
It is disgusting how Israel wants to change the laws of other countries to suit it where as it claims it is the democracy oasis in the dictatorship desert in the Middle East. If it were a democratic country then it would respect that this law was legislated and approved in a democraticy system by the representatives of the public in a free country.
I hope that general won’t be the last one not to enter Europe for fear of the arrest.In fact I hope one of those generals one day would be arrested and sued in the ICC
