Savona, "Egitto, Arte&Mistero": sul Primar una mostra dedicata ai segreti delle piramidi | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

“Alessandro Benassai, presidente dell’Associazione Archeosofica, ha fatto interessanti scoperte sul simbolismo numerico e geometrico delle grandi piramidi. Studiando le grandi piramidi della Piana di Giza e di Dashur, è giunto a determinare con esattezza le proporzioni numeriche e geometriche del modulo di base con il quale gli antichi costruttori, e in particolare il Re architetto Snefru, edificarono le piramidi. Da queste ricerche risulta che il modello costruttivo dei famosi colossi egizi fu concepito in base ad una conoscenza matematica, geometrica e astronomica strettamente correlata al simbolismo mistico che faceva parte della conoscenza segreta di
quell’antico popolo” spiegano gli organizzatori.

Tourisme : courtiser les Chinois

Tourisme : courtiser les Chinois | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Alors que le président Morsi s’est rendu la semaine dernière en Chine et en Iran, le secteur y voit deux occasions rêvées d’accroître le nombre de visiteurs de ces pays en Egypte. Mais il faudra venir à bout de plusieurs obstacles.

« Le tourisme est l’une des priorités de la visite de Morsi. On vise à attirer plus de 160 000 touristes chinois en Egypte en 2013. C’est un marché émergent qui a encore beaucoup à donner si on lui accorde l’intérêt qu’il mérite, et c’est ce qu’on est en train de faire », explique Hicham Zaazoue, ministre du Tourisme, qui a accompagné le président lors de sa visite en Chine avec un nombre d’investisseurs égyptiens dans le tourisme.

“Street Art of the New Egypt - 2013 Calendar”, by Mia Gröndahl

“Street Art of the New Egypt - 2013 Calendar”, by Mia Gröndahl | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

A visual celebration of the art and artists of the walls of the new Egypt, by the photographer of Gaza Graffiti and Tahrir Square
The Egyptian Revolution that began on 25 January 2011 immediately gave rise to a wave of popular political and social expression in the form of graffiti and street art, phenomena that were almost unknown in the country under the old regime. Mia Gröndahl, the photographer of Gaza Graffiti: Messages of Love and Politics and Tahrir Square: The Heart of the Egyptian Revolution, has followed and documented the constantly and rapidly changing graffiti art of the new Egypt from its beginnings, and here in more than 200 full-color images celebrates the imagination, the skill, the humor, and the political will of the young artists and activists who have claimed the walls of Cairo and other Egyptian cities as their canvas.
From the simplest hand-written messages, through stencils and martyr portraits, to the elaborate murals of Mohamed Mahmoud Street, the messages on the walls are presented in themed sections - Revolution & Freedom, Egyptian & Proud, Martyrs & Heroes, Cross & Crescent, Think & Think Again - punctuated by interviews with some of the individual artists whose work has broken fresh ground.

“Les sociétés méditerranéennes face au risque. Espaces et frontières” - C. Velud (éd.) | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

À l’ère de la mondialisation et de l’accélération des dynamiques transnationales, la Méditerranée montre de manière assez exemplaire que les conflits actuels les plus violents qui s’y déroulent portent principalement, encore et toujours, sur les questions de tracés frontaliers et d’espaces en recomposition. La problématique de la frontière est toujours là, omniprésente. Elle est même particulièrement d’actualité avec ces kilomètres de murs qui, au Sahara, en Palestine et de la Grèce à Chypre, déchirent les territoires, divisent les populations et témoignent dramatiquement de la permanence des peurs, de la hantise du risque et du besoin de sécurité.
C’est cette histoire mouvementée de la région méditerranéenne, de ses espaces meurtris et de ses populations écartelées que cet ouvrage se propose d’aborder, sur la très longue durée. Car, là encore, c’est bien la lecture des leçons du passé qui aide à comprendre celle des conflits d’aujourd’hui.

Jews, Alexandria, and Rosh Hashanah

Jews, Alexandria, and Rosh Hashanah | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Synagogue—a strange word on the ears of many Egyptians. Many have forgotten—or chose to forget—that Jews have been living in Egypt since biblical times, where they have built synagogues and practiced their religion freely. One of these Synagogues is Eliyahu Hanavi Synagogue on Nabi Daniel Street in Alexandria. Built in 1354, then was later bombed by the French during the Egyptian expedition in 1798 and was re-built again in 1836, during Egypt’s golden time, the era of Muhammad Ali. The founder of Modern Egypt was a man of great vision; he was tolerant toward non-Muslims and abolished the Jizya law (extra-tax imposed on non-Muslims), marking a huge step toward the equality of all Egyptians in a modern civil state. later it was formally abolished in the entire Ottoman empire at 1855.

"Les Egyptiens perdent leur nature non violente", par Mohamed Salmawy | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Le gouvernorat de Charqiya est témoin actuellement de l’application des lois coutumières au lieu de la loi. C’est un exemple révélateur de l’état d’insécurité qui prévaut en Egypte il y a un an et demi et qui prévoit de faire basculer le pays dans un chaos sécuritaire sans pareil. Il va sans dire que la prédominance de la loi de la jungle et des intérêts sécuritaires des individus à la place de la sécurité nationale est très dangereuse. (Al-Ahram Hebdo)

Droits de l'Homme : L’équation difficile de la sécurité

Droits de l'Homme : L’équation difficile de la sécurité | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Le projet d’une loi d’urgence élaboré par le ministre de la Justice, Ahmad Mekki, suscite l’inquiétude de l’opposition et des militants des droits de l’homme qui craignent un retour à la répression sous prétexte de combattre le banditisme et la criminalité. Le projet de loi a été soumis pour examen au Conseil suprême de la magistrature en prévision de sa ratification.

La loi permet au président de la République de décréter l’état d’urgence « si la sécurité du pays est en péril », notamment en cas de guerre, de troubles internes, de catastrophes naturelles ou écologiques. L’état d’urgence est alors instauré pour une durée de six mois après l’approbation de l’Assemblée du peuple. Sa prolongation éventuelle n’est possible que par référendum. (...)

Bien qu’une bonne partie de la population pense que la police doit être soutenue dans sa tâche de rétablir la sécurité, certains partis d’opposition et figures de la société civile sont défavorables au retour de l’état d’urgence. « La promulgation de cette loi soulève des doutes et des suspicions. Pourquoi mettre en place des lois exceptionnelles alors que nous avons connu des élections libres et démocratiques », réagit Amr Moussa, ancien chef de la diplomatie et ex-secrétaire général de la Ligue arabe.(Mohamed Abdel-Hady/Al-Ahram Hebdo)

Egypt: End Sinai Nightmare for Migrants

Egypt: End Sinai Nightmare for Migrants | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egyptshould use its increased security force presence in the Sinai Peninsula to free hundreds of migrants held for ransom and abused by human traffickers and other criminals. The authorities should detain, investigate, and prosecute the traffickers.Human Rights Watch has documented the trafficking of the mostly sub-Saharan migrants and asylum seekers in Sinai, who are tortured and sexually assaulted to press their relatives for ransom. Under Mubarak, law enforcement officials did not intervene to protect the victims, although Egypt has a strong anti-trafficking law. President Muhammad Morsy ordered security forces to “impose full control” over Sinai following the August 5, 2012, attack on a security post on the border with Israel that left 16 Egyptian soldiers dead.

“Thousands of sub-Saharan asylum seekers and migrants attempting to cross the Sinai have fallen victim to abusive traffickers and other criminals,” said Joe Stork, deputy director of the Middle East and North Africa division at Human Rights Watch. “Egypt’s new government should use its increased law enforcement operations to rescue victims of trafficking and end these abuses.”

Credible sources in Cairo confirmed to Human Rights Watch a steady increase in the number of trafficking victims who have been tortured, raped, and otherwise sexually assaulted over the past two years.

Human Rights Watch has received numerous reports in recent years of organized criminal groups detaining asylum seekers and migrants in Sinai for extortion before allowing them to complete the journey to Israel. In December 2010, Human Rights Watch reported a well-established trafficking network in Sinai that victimized hundreds, perhaps thousands, of sub-Saharan asylum seekers and migrants, most of them Eritreans. The traffickers imprison their victims in various locations in Sinai for weeks or months until their relatives abroad pay tens of thousands of dollars to secure their release. Those unable to pay are kept in captivity and made to work off their debt, sometimes through agricultural or cleaning tasks, credible community sources told Human Rights Watch.

Egitto: opposizione, 'Consiglio diritti umani islamicizzato'

Il Consiglio egiziano per i diritti umani in mano agli islamisti? E' la denuncia di alcuni movimenti di opposizione e attivisti del Paese. Un paio di giorni fa è stata resa nota la lista delle personalità che faranno parte dell'organo incaricato di vigilare sul rispetto dei diritti umani in Egitto: vi compaiono i nomi di parecchi islamisti (circa un terzo dei componenti) e, in generale, di personaggi considerati vicini - troppo vicini, secondo i detrattori - ai Fratelli musulmani e al governo del presidente Mohammed Morsi, che è anche il leader di quel partito. L'accusa mossa da diversi gruppi ed esponenti politici contro il Consiglio della Shura (la camera alta del Parlamento egiziano, incaricata della selezione) è quella di avere politicizzato e 'islamicizzato' un'istituzione che dovrebbe invece avere il ruolo di cane da guardia. Critiche ampiamente riprese dalla stampa locale, che assumono una rilevanza ancora maggiore in un Pese dove, da quando è stato eletto Morsi, i laici temono una deriva illiberale, e dove attualmente si sta discutendo di quale debba essere il posto della Sharia (la legge religiosa musulmana) nella nuova Costituzione post-Mubarak.

“Egypt in the Era of Hosni Mubarak”, by Galal Amin

“Egypt in the Era of Hosni Mubarak”, by Galal Amin | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Galal Amin once again turns his attention to the shaping of Egyptian society and the Egyptian state in the half-century and more that has elapsed since the Nasserite revolution, this time focusing on the era of President Mubarak. He looks at corruption, poverty, the plight of the middle class, and of course, the economy, and directs his penetrating gaze toward the Mubarak regime’s uneasy relationship with the relatively free press it encouraged, the vexing issue of presidential succession, and Egypt’s relations with the Arab world and the United States. Addressing such themes from the perspective of an active participant in Egyptian intellectual life throughout the era, Galal Amin portrays the Mubarak regime’s stance in the domestic and international arenas as very much a product of history, which, while not exonerating the regime, certainly helps to explain it.

Women's movement calls for anti-harassment march

Women's movement calls for anti-harassment march | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

A new Egyptian women’s movement announced that it will begin its activities by organizing an anti-harassment march that calls for a law that criminalizes the use of violence against women.

The movement, that goes by the name "The Egyptian Women's Front", has garnered the support of many political parties including Tagamoa, Al-Wafd, the Nasserist, Egyptian Democratic, Free Egyptians, Popular Coalition and Al-Ghad parties.

The movement also garnered the support of the women rights coalition, the Creativity Front and a number of organizations dedicated to women rights and young movements and initiatives.

One of the founders, Hoda Badran, said that there has been social pressure on women recently, starting with excluding them from leadership positions and preventing them from participating in the building of the country's future.

She pointed to last week's governmental reshuffle where not one woman was appointed governor.

Badran, Secretary General of the Arab Women Coalition, said that popular women rights movements are currently trying to pressure the new administration to preserve women rights.

She argued that there are female leaders in every field in Egypt.

"The democratic path staggers in states where women are marginalized", Badran said, pointing to efforts of the new administration to marginalize women. (Omnaya Talal/Aswat Masriya)

Language of reconciliation

Language of reconciliation | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Thousands of Egyptians are studying Hebrew, and learning about the culture of Israel, a neighbor still widely viewed with hostility and suspicion.

In the 20 months since Egyptians took to Cairo streets to sweep away the old corrupt regime, and with it the guardians of the Camp David peace treaty, pro-Israel sentiment has been hard to come by in Egypt. But one group of scholars could be a vital bridge to keeping the lines of communication open – the Hebrew lovers.

Each year, some 6,000 Egyptian students break away from the pack and opt to study Hebrew, instead of the more popular courses offering German, French and even Russian.

And while this figure may seem small in a country with a population of more than 82 million, before the revolution the number of students was growing.

These students speak Hebrew, they read and translate Hebrew literature, and some have even visited Israel – a rarity in Egypt. (The Jerusalem Post)

The IMF loan to Egypt: Right answers, wrong questions

The government claims that the IMF has no conditionality clauses linked to its prospective $4.8 billion loan. But what it fails to say is that its entire programme, which it authors, is subject to IMF approva.

The government is said to be negotiating the biggest IMF loan ever in Egypt's history, worth $4.8 billion. The loan is to be used for at least three different purposes, government officials and the ruling Freedom and Justice Party say. The first is to support the ever-widening budget deficit, which is expected to hit a record LE150 billion this fiscal year.

The second is to support Egypt's dwindling foreign currency reserves that have reached a historical low of $14.4 billion, falling from almost $35 billion in January 2011.

The third is to mitigate the balance of payments deficit. Some economists and policymakers are echoing Kamal Al-Ganzouri's Cabinet claim that bringing the IMF into the scene now can help send reassuring signals to local and international investors.

According to this argument, the IMF's presence means that Egypt's macroeconomic policies are sound and that the country's market reforms are not going to be reversed by the post-Mubarak political order. All in all, the government, the presidency and the majority party all hold that the IMF loan is inevitable in the immediate term to pull the economy out of an imminent recession and possibly a foreign currency crisis.

The government's stance is indeed justifiable. The IMF after all does offer the best interest rates, being the world's cheapest creditor. The loan offered by the Fund is at a low interest rate with good repayment terms. Over and above, domestic borrowing has proven to be considerably more expensive than foreign borrowing in terms of debt service, not to mention its crowding-out effect on private investment. What is the problem then with the IMF loan? (Amr Adly/Ahram Online)

Le Sinaï, voie sans issue pour les migrants africains

Le Sinaï, voie sans issue pour les migrants africains | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Une vingtaine de migrants érythréens sont bloqués depuis près d’une semaine à la frontière entre l’Égypte et Israël. L’État hébreu leur interdit formellement l'accès à son territoire. "Ce groupe ne doit pas entrer", a ainsi affirmé le 5 septembre le ministre de l'Intérieur, Eli Yishai. "Nous agissons dans le respect de la loi. Ils sont venus là en sachant très bien qu'ils ne pourraient pas passer", a-t-il ajouté. Des soldats ont même repoussé des activistes israéliens qui tentaient de se rendre sur place pour apporter des vivres aux migrants. Selon le quotidien israélien "Haaretz", les gardes-frontières israéliens ont été autorisés à leur lancer des bouteilles d’eau "mais en quantité limitée uniquement".

Ces dernières années, environ 60 000 immigrés d’origine africaine sont entrés en Israël en traversant le Sinaï. Leur présence a déclenché une polémique politique sur le bien fondé de leur accueil, ainsi que des actes xénophobes. Israël a donc décidé de stopper l’afflux de ces migrants et érige actuellement une clôture de 250 kilomètres le long de la frontière égyptienne pour tenter d'empêcher les infiltrations via le Sinaï égyptien. Quelque 170 kilomètres sont déjà construits et l'ouvrage devrait être achevé d'ici la fin de l'année. (Amara Makhoul-Yatim/France 24)

Constitution authors consider banning blasphemy

Constitution authors consider banning blasphemy | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The Constituent Assembly's Formulation Committee has in principle approved a new constitutional article that would criminalize blasphemy, including comments insulting God, the prophets or Prophet Mohamed's companions, sources from the assembly said Wednesday.

The agreement was reportedly reached at a closed meeting Tuesday held at the Shura Council and attended by Freedom and Justice Party leader Farid Wassel, former diplomat and presidential candidate Amr Moussa and representatives from the Freedom and Justice, Wafd and Ghad al-Thawra parties.

The article, which would be incorporated into the second chapter of a new constitution, states that it is prohibited to insult the "Divine Entity, prophets of God, Prophet Mohamed's wives, the righteous caliphs and the prophet's companions." The 1971 Constitution on which the assembly is basing the new charter does not contain language criminalizing blasphemy. (Al-Masry Al-Youm)
