    There is no such thing as "freedom and Democracy". It is a beautifully worded illusion of freedom. Just because you walk into a voting booth doesn't mean you have a say of what is going on. All candidates have to play the tune of the Global Elite. There is that saying, "none are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free."

    To be honest akhi, I very much agree. But I only called it "freedom" because compared to what they have now, they were better off being able to vote. It's not the best system, but it's more freedom than military rule.

    Letter from Cairo

    Theres nothing like election season in Cairo. All over the city lamp-posts flutter with campaign banners, each displaying the awkward smile of our president, Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
    Just as surprising as the lack of campaigns for any rival is the fact that Sisi himself is not techinically on the ballot yet. With just two months until polling day, he is yet to announce his intention to run, saying only: ‘If the Egyptian people want me to run again, I will do it’.

    Luckily for him, it seems thats exactly what they want. Since last year, a grassroots campaign ‘So you can build it’ (‘it’ being Egypt), has been trying to persuade the president to put his name on the ballot through a nationwide petition. This has galvanised almost everyone, with a church insider telling the Eye that at least on bishop received a stack of petitions for his congregation from the national security force, showing how far this grass roots campaign has spread.

    Rival campaigns have garnered less support. Last November, former prime minster Ahmed Shafik announced his intentions to run from his home-away-from-home, in exile in Abu Dhabi. But after being arrested by the Emiratis, extradited to Egypt and holed up in the New Cairo Marriott under heavy guard, he told his Twitter followers earlier this month that he had changed his mind.

    Colonel Ahmed Konsowa also threw his hat in the ring last year, with a video posted online in which the 41 year old addressed the camera in army fatigues. He was promptly arrested for breaking Egypts constitution by ‘harming the requirements of the military’ by talking politics in uniform; the separation of civil and military institutions is sacrosanct under Sisi.

    The Muslims Brotherhood of course, cannot participate. But the past week has seen three potential presidents declare their intention to run. They include human rights activist and previous presidential candidate Khaled Ali, representing the ‘Bread and Freedom’ party, which takes its name from an Arab Spring revolutionary slogan.

    A question mark hangs over his campaign, however, due to an incident outside a Cairo courthouse, in which Ali allegedly gave the court the finger – which he denies. For this, Ali is facing charges of ‘offending public decency’, which may preclude him from participating in the democratic process.

    Another new contender is Mortada Mansour, Egypts answer to Donald Trump. The president of the countrys number two football club, Zamalek SC, the businessman is well known for his erratic outbursts and for a long running feud with Zamalek fans ‘The ultra White Knights’, whom he calls ‘terrorists’. In a TV interview last week, he announced that his first move as president would be ‘to ban facebook’.

    One could accuse Mansour of neglecting more crucial issues. Since 2014, our country has seen multiple terrorist attacks, including the two worst in Egyptian history. Inflation is at 20%; the Egyptian pound is worth half what it was four years ago; and the cost of living for everyday Egyptians has sky-rocketed.

    And thats just what life is like on the outside. Rights groups say 60000 political prisoners languish in Egypts jails – a six fold increase on the Mubarak regime at its peak. Human Rights Watch wrote in September that the state uses ‘widespread arbitrary arrests, enforced disappearances, and torture’ against anyone who opposes it. The HRW website has since been blocked in Egypt.

    Despite all this, and the fact he’s not even on the ballot yet, there is little doubt Sisi will have no problem walking into office for a second term. He proved his campaign credentials last election, when he won with 97 percent of the vote. So successful was this landslide that this time around it seems he doesn’t even need to campaign. And to think, this man who just four years ago suggested Egypt was ‘not ready for democracy’. How far we’ve come.

    So this is the Democracy in Egypt. Ban groups that you don't like and then come off as giving the people a "choice" in the political direction. And as far as the West is concerned, they turned a blind eye when Sisi overthrew the democratically elected Muslim Brotherhood. Nothing but hypocrisy. The U.S. and its lackeys only preach the "freedom and Democracy" when it suits their interests. And as for the Egyptian people, your rulers are only a mirror of yourselves.

    Yep, exactly. Democracy only when it serves their interests. I think rather than be angry about it, I've decided to just try and build a channel on YouTube so I can INFORM about it. When the state of the Ummah is one where the Muslims know their purpose in life (to please Allah), and self educate, we will all be more successful, not just the Egyptians, inshaAllah. May Allah guide us all to goodness.

    SubhanAllah. What an insightful piece. Indeed it only reinforces what we all know sadly: Democracy in Egypt is just a facade, a sort of formality behind which lies a simple dictatorship that will spend the wealth of Egypt, a rich and prosperous nation, on a small group of elites who do as they wish. May Allah guide us all to good, and honour this Ummah with the best of leaders, like those that came before us.

    Morsi facing early death in inhuman prison conditions, British MPs say
    #EgyptTurmoil

    Panel calls treatment of former Egyptian president 'cruel, inhuman and degrading' and says Sisi could be held liable for torture


    Mohamed Morsi is held in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day, sleeps on a cement floor, and has been permitted to see his family once in the past three years, a panel of British parliamentarians and international lawyers has found. The former Egyptian president may die prematurely as a result of inadequate medical treatment, and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi could be held liable for his treatment under international law, according to the panel.

    "We find that the conditions of Dr Morsi's detention would be of such continuing interest to the whole chain of command that the current president could, in principle, be responsible for the crime of torture," they said.

    The panel, led by MP Crispin Blunt, released its findings on Wednesday after it was commissioned by Morsi's family - through London-based law firm ITN Solicitors - to investigate the conditions in which the 67-year-old is being held. The panel asked to visit Morsi in Tora Prison and assess his situation first-hand earlier this month, but the Egyptian government has not responded.

    "We draw an inference that the Egyptian government do not wish for independent oversight of Dr Morsi's detention," the report said.

    A former warden at the maximum security prison, nicknamed Scorpion, said in 2012 that the complex had been designed "so that those who go in don't come out again, unless dead".

    "We would have rather hoped that the revolution would have addressed that," Blunt said. "I think the evidence is that it hasn't. President Sisi ought to."

    With his re-election expected this week, Blunt said it could be a chance, however unlikely, for the president to "heal the divisions in Egypt" through addressing the prison conditions of Morsi and others.

    "If the Egyptian authorities want to avoid the undoubted difficulties of him dying in custody, and it would appear a pretty serious case of neglect, then it’s an opportunity for them," he said.

    'Cruel, inhuman and degrading'

    Based on the testimonies of Morsi's family and others informed of his condition, the panel has called his treatment "cruel, inhuman and degrading" and said it could "meet the threshold for torture in accordance Egyptian and international law". Without urgent medical assistance, the damage to his health "may be permanent and possibly terminal", according to the report.

    "The consequence of this inadequate care is likely to be rapid deterioration of his long‐term conditions, which is likely to lead to premature death."

    Morsi is only served canned food, which is sometimes rotten, and is now suffering from deteriorating liver and kidney function potentially as a result of malnutrition, according to the panel. He has suffered from diabetic coma and is losing vision in his left eye due to a lack of insulin, injuries to the neck and spine as a result of sleeping on a cement floor, abscesses in his jaws and conjunctivitis, reports say. His son, Abdullah Morsi, told the panel that a doctor examined his father six months ago, but only had a stethoscope and blood pressure monitor. Further examinations and treatments have not been offered.

    "The doctor in the prison is a general practitioner appointed by the state," Abdullah Morsi told the panel. "My father requires an assessment by a radiologist, blood tests, a physiotherapist and an ophthalmologist."

    His family has expressed fears that this denial of treatment may be purposeful.

    Tayyab Ali, a partner at ITN solicitors, said its likely that the report will be sent to the United Nations, the European Union and the African Union to join a growing body of evidence about what is happening at Scorpion Prison.

    "At some point, the various criminal acts that have occured in Egypt will need to be address in some sort of forum," Ali said.

    The panel, Ali added, have offered to write a second report if the Egyptian government grants them access to Morsi. The country's first democratically elected president and a member of the now-outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, Morsi has been held in prison since July 2013 coup by the Egyptian military. Since then, he has been sentenced to death by hanging and a total of 48 years in prison for various charges, including killing protesters, insulting the judiciary and collaborating with Hamas and Hezbollah.

    His death sentences have been overturned, but appeals that could reimpose them are pending. The Egyptian embassy in London has been contacted for comment.

    Morsi is also reported to be suffering from conditions linked to his diabetes and high blood pressure and reports indicate his health has deteriorated since his incarceration.

    So where's the uproar from the International Community on how this democratically elected ousted leader is being treated? Like I said, nothing but hypocrisy. The West talks about "Freedom and Democracy" only when it suits them.

    What a surprise!

    Sisi wins second term as Egyptian president after purge of challengers

    Early results show Abdel Fatah al-Sisi taking 92%, with his five main rivals barred from ballot paper


    Egyptian president Abdel Fatah al-Sisi has been re-elected for a second term after an election campaign in which five of his potential challengers were prevented from getting on the ballot.

    Preliminary results showed that Sisi won about 92% of the vote, with turnout at around 41.5%.

    Twenty-five million of the 60 million registered voters turned out during the three days of polling that ended on Wednesday, state-owned newspaper Al-Ahram reported. Twenty-three million voted for Sisi.

    The Akhbar el-Youm newspaper did not report the full turnout but said Sisi won 21.4 million votes.

    According to the Al-Ahram newspaper, in addition to 23 million who cast valid votes, 2 million spoiled their ballot papers.

    Sisi’s sole challenger was Mousa Mostafa Mousa, who previously declared that he “was not here to challenge the president” and who entered the race at the last minute after five other potential challengers were blocked from getting on the ballot.

    Mousa conceded his loss on Wednesday night, telling a TV station he had hoped for 10% of the vote. “But I know the immense popularity of President Sisi,” he said.

    Other, more heavyweight would-be challengers were all sidelined, detained or pulled out.

    As army chief, Sisi ousted Egypt’s first freely elected president, Islamist Mohamed Morsi, after mass street protests in 2013, then went on to win his first term in 2014 with 96.9% of the vote.

    Turnout of 47% in that year’s election was higher than this year’s 40% despite appeals from Sherif Ismail, the prime minister, for voters to fulfil their patriotic duty.

    Boycotters who cannot show good reason for not going to the polls could a face a fine of up to 500 Egyptian pounds (£20), the electoral commission has warned.

    At a news conference, election commission official Mahmud al-Sherif said there had been no violations of Egypt’s election law.

    Opposition groups had called for a boycott of this week’s vote, which they labelled a facade. There were no presidential debates and Sisi himself did not appear at any official campaign events, although he spoke at a number of ceremonies.

    In an interview days ahead of the vote, Sisi said he had wished there were more candidates, denying any role in sidelining them.

    At a speech before the vote, he also called for a high turnout. “I need you because the journey is not over,” Sisi told a mostly female audience. “I need every lady and mother and sister, please, I need the entire world to see us in the street voting.”

    Morsi’s removal had ushered in a deadly crackdown that killed and jailed hundreds of Islamists. The initial attack on Morsi’s supporters expanded to include liberal and leftist secular activists.

    Statement from President Mohamed Morsi's Family

    Statement from President Mohamed Morsi's Family

    News have surfaced that the health of President Mohamed Morsi is deteriorating in an unprecedented manner amid total neglegence by his jailers, therefore:

    - We hold the 'butcher' commander of the rogue coup [Abdul Fattah Al Sisi] fully responsible for his life.
    - We hold the murderer Minister of Interior fully responsible for his health condition, and for providing the President appropriate treatment.
    - We hold Abbas Kamel (Sisi’s chief of staff, now head of Egypt’s General Intelligence) fully responsible for conspiracies he devises, threatening President Morsi's life.
    - We ask the honorable people in Egypt and the Arab and Muslim World to adopt the cause of Dr. Morsi's rights and his unalienated right to proper health care, and we ask the faithful for their prayers.

    You know Morsi only won 51 percent of the vote when he was elected. Which means any reforms were going to be met with fierce opposition. You have a lot of Egyptians who really don't want to live under Shariah. They want to live according to their whims and desires. So now they will reap what they sow and a leader is only a mirror of the population.

    Egypt’s Election… A killer in Power

    Taking a snapshot of today’s election, Sisi has purged all his candidates, putting some in prison, and others have been ordered to keep silent to avoid detention

    Have you ever imagined that, in an election, 5 million go to the ballot boxes and the regime claims they are 25 million? It happens in Egypt … In 2014, and after the coup d’état, approximately 10-15% of the voters only went to the ballot boxes; the regime then said that the turnover was more than 50% … It is normal in Egypt since the army came to power in 1952: the media is theirs, no supervision on election or voting and they can claim whatever they like; if you disagree, you will be put in prison.

    Today in Egypt, Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, who led the military coup d’etat against the first elected president in Egypt’s history, is running again for a second term as a defacto president. He has put more than 70,000 in prison from all political parties, including the head of state, the speaker of the parliament, parliamentarians, political activists, university professors, etc. He has also killed more than 850 peaceful protestors in Rabaa Square, according to Human Rights Watch, and hundreds after it. The total number of those who have been extra-judicially killed op to today is not less than 6,000 from civilians.

    In 2012, in the parliamentarian elections, Egyptians stood in long queues waiting to put their votes in the ballot boxes for hours; some stayed for 5 hours happily under the rain to exercise their right for the first time in their life.

    Then, we knew that our vote really matters and we can get choose whoever we want to represent us. There was wide participation from all the political spectrums, including Islamist, secular, liberal, and national parties, and others. Although there were political tension and polarization that was remarkable at the time, this was part of the new phase in Egypt. You can’t imagine people who have been deprived of the right to engage in politics for decades to present an attitude of established systems and established democracies.

    Women, elderly, youth, all categories took part in the political process, including the parliamentary elections, the referendum on Constitution, or the presidential election in 2012.

    In the presidential election of 2012, Egypt had more than 10 candidates, many TV interviews, and every candidate presented his plan and agenda in case he wins.

    As I was myself in the campaign of Dr. Morsi, I felt there is a real competition. We had to move through every city in Egypt, hold many events and rallies, talk on TV shows, present our agenda and plan to every sector in society, monitor opponents, and participate in many other activities. Yes, polarization was there, but freedom was there too, and it was much more important. Egyptians chose Dr. Morsi, an Islamist.

    Taking a snapshot of today’s election

    Sisi has purged all his candidates, putting some in prison, and others have been ordered to keep silent to avoid detention. Shafiq, the second runner in 2012 elections, was deported from UAE in a private plan when he announced his interest to become a candidate in the presidential election of 2018. Sami Anan, who used to be the army chief, was arrested weeks ago and put in military prison two days after he announced his candidacy. Abdel-Moneim Abul Fotuh, who was a candidate in 2012 and got almost 4 million votes, was arrested weeks ago after criticizing the regime in a TV interview. Egypt today is a big prison. The only candidate running against Sisi is someone who was campaigning for him, and the regime pushed him to submit his papers for election a short time before the deadline. His name is Mousa Mostafa, and he himself says he is not running against Sisi; he is only doing this to make it appear better.

    The dream of democracy and freedom has never ended in Egypt. Today, Egyptians are giving the regime a lesson of boycotting the elections, according to the last study by the Egyptian center of surveys; only 2.6% is likely to show up in the election this time. We will wait still to hear the coming lie from the regime. The regime is politically naked and the stick has almost fully eroded…

    Egypt marks five years since 'Rabaa massacre'

    Human Rights Watch said attack on a sit-in protest of Mohamed Morsi supporters in Cairo in 2013, was 'the largest mass killing in Egypt's modern history'.


    It has been five years since at least 1,000 people were killed by security forces in Rabaa Square, in Egypt's capital, Cairo.

    Human Rights Watch described it as "the largest mass killing in Egypt's modern history".

    The group was protesting against the coup which deposed the democratically-elected President Mohamed Morsi.

    The effects are still being felt in Egypt five years on.

    Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith reports.





    The religious establishment at Al Azhar University, the Salafi al-Nour Party, the Grand Mufti of Egypt, the Saudi regime, Egyptian secularists and the Obama administration ALL played a key role in the Rabaa al-Adawiya massacre on 14 August 2013.

    Tents were bulldozed and torched alight whilst unarmed protestors rested. Injured protesters that were being treated in makeshift hospitals were shot dead by security forces.

    Human Rights Watch cite the death toll as 817, when in reality, the number exceeded 1,500...murdered in one day.

    May Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) accept those who were massacred in Rabaa as martyrs, and destroy those who persist in their Pharaonic oppression, ameen.


    From Dilly Hussain

    Interesting response

    Muslim Abdullah

    But don't forget Abdul Wahid it was HT that was in SYNC with the afformentioned groups to topple Morsi's elected government... Or did that fact just happen to escape you? : )

    Egypt sentences 75 protesters to death after demonstrations where 900 were people killed by security services

    Amnesty International describes ruling as 'disgraceful' and a 'mockery of justice'

    Egypt has sentenced 75 protesters to death and dozens more to life behind bars in a mass trial over a 2013 protest in support of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    In August 2013 up to 900 people were killed in Rabaa and nearby al Nahda square by security services after they gathered to demonstrate against the coup which had removed the elected president Mohamed Morsi.

    At what was initially intended to be a sit-in protest, the mood soon turned violent after Egyptian police moved to disperse the camps. The government said many protesters were armed and that eight members of the security forces were killed.

    Of the hundreds who were killed, six were from the security services while the others were protesters. Human Rights Watch described the event as the largest killings of demonstrators in a single day in recent history.

    Five years after the massacre Cairo’s criminal court has handed down 75 death sentences, 47 life sentences, and heavy prison sentences ranging from 15 to five years to 612 people.

    Those sentenced to jail included a US citizen, Moustafa Kassem, rights group Pretrial Rights International said. Washington is Cairo’s closest western ally and one of its top aid donors.

    In Saturday’s hearing at the vast Tora prison complex south of Cairo, a criminal court sentenced to death by hanging several prominent Islamists including senior Brotherhood leaders al-Erian and Beltagi and preacher Safwat Higazi.

    Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Mohamed Badie and dozens more were given life sentences, judicial sources said. Others received jail sentences ranging from five to 15 years.

    Cases were dropped against five people who died while in prison, judicial sources said.

    For executions to take place, president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi must issue a final approval.

    Najia Bounaim, north Africa campaigns director at Amnesty International, described the sentences as “disgraceful” and claimed that no member of the security services had been held accountable for the deaths.

    “We condemn today’s verdict in the strongest terms. The death penalty should never be an option under any circumstance,” Ms Bounaim said.

    “The fact that not a single police officer has been brought to account for the killing of at least 900 people in the Rabaa and Nahda protests shows what a mockery of justice this trial was. The Egyptian authorities should be ashamed.

    “We demand a retrial in an impartial court and in full respect of the right to a fair trial for all defendants, without recourse to the death penalty.”

    What has EGYPT'S President SISI ACHIEVED in EGYPT?

    For five years Egypt has been governed by President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and earlier this year he won his second term for Presidential elections with 97% of the vote. The elections were criticised as being a one-man show with no credible opposition and at least six other candidates were forced to pull out, prosecuted or jailed. Sadly, irrespective of the desire for political change expressed by the Egyptian population during the Arab Spring, 7 years later, Egypt remains suffocated with disastrous economic policies, brutal dictatorship and the selling out of its sovereignty to regional and international powers.

    The country is likely to remain fractured for many years to come unless the people miraculously are able to create political change, starting with the change of leadership.
