'Egypt is safe; I urge Germans to visit': German travel expert

'Egypt is safe; I urge Germans to visit': German travel expert | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Egypt is a safe place, unlike how it is portrayed by the international media; I urge Germans to visit it," the editor-in-chief of prominent German magazine FVW said on Saturday.At a workshop devoted to Germany's tourism market held in the Red Sea resort town of El-Gouna this weekend, Klaus Hildebrandt told Ahram Online that the global media tended to focus solely on recent protests and clashes in Egypt, even though the country's seaside tourist areas remained stable and secure.

Hildebrandt urged Egypt's tourism ministry to work on improving Egypt’s international image.

On Saturday, tourism minister Hisham Zazou stated that the number of German tourists travelling to Egypt had reached 500,000 this year, rising 33.6 per cent in the first half of 2012 compared to the first half of 2011. (Dalia Farouk and Ahram Online)

Egyptian households spend $93 annually on phones, internet: Survey

Egyptian households spend $93 annually on phones, internet: Survey | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egyptian households spent an average of 2.5 per cent of their annual expenditure, or LE555 ($92.5), on telecommunications in 2010/11, the latest survey by the Central Agency for Public Mobilisation and Statistics (CAPMAS) showed on Sunday.

Mobile phones made up more than 60 per cent of the amount spent on telecommunications, while internet services made up just 5 per cent.

Eight per cent of households have an internet subscription at home, a figure that grows to 14 per cent in cities, and drops to 2.6 per cent in the countryside. (Egypt News)

Egypt women on state TV can wear veils

Egypt women on state TV can wear veils | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

After months of wrangling, women in Egypt are now officially permitted to wear the higab, or veil, while presenting television programs on the official state television.It ends decades of Egyptian government regulations that barred women from wearing anything to cover their hair.

The first woman, on Sunday, to don the headscarf was Fatma Nabil, who appeared on Sunday to read the 12 o’clock bulletin.

She is the first woman to appear with a veil on state TV in nearly 50 years since the state television was established.

Women seem split over the move, while on one side they believe it is a woman’s right to wear the veil, as former journalist and now researcher Fardous Hossam told Bikyamasr.com.

“Women should be given the ability to wear whatever their choosing on television as long as it does not disrupt their job,” she said. (Manar Ammar and Joseph Mayton/Bikya Masr)

Egypte : début du procès d’un journaliste fâché avec le pouvoir islamiste | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Vidéo

Il a défié le nouveau pouvoir égyptien, et il est le premier journaliste à en payer le prix. Tewfik Okacha, directeur et présentateur d’une chaîne de télévision privée, a comparu samedi devant un tribunal du Caire. Il n’est pas venu seul, mais accompagné de dizaines de sympathisants. Accusé d’incitation au meurtre du président islamiste Mohamed Morsi, il a nié et dénoncé un procès politique. “Il y a une différence entre la liberté d’expression et l’incitation au meurtre, a insisté l’avocat des Frères musulmans, dont est issu le président égyptien. Tewfik Okacha a franchi la ligne rouge”.

La chaîne de télévision de Tewfik Okacha est suspendue pendant un mois. L’accusé, lui, reste en liberté, en attendant la prochaine audience de son procès le 3 octobre. L’opposition accuse le pouvoir islamiste de vouloir museler la presse.

Más de 300 piezas faraónicas fueron robadas de museos egipcios

Más de 300 piezas faraónicas fueron robadas de museos egipcios | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

En los últimos dos años, las excavaciones ilegales y saqueos de sitios arqueológicos han perjudicado más el patrimonio cultural egipcio que el deterioro por acción de la naturaleza durante miles de años.

Más de 300 piezas arqueológicas egipcias han sido robadas luego del inicio de la revoluciones, informó el jefe del Departamento de Antigüedades de Egipto, Mustafa Amin, al señalar a los museos y almacenes como principal blanco de los ladrones, además de las pirámides y otros centros arqueológicos.

Según Amin, después de la revolución, es más fácil saquear las pirámides o las proximidades de los antiguos templos ya que muy a menudo no hay guardias de seguridad. “Muchas de las excavaciones se llevan a cabo en lugares de difícil acceso para nosotros. Los ladrones abandonan el país por las fronteras donde tenemos pocos policías. Nos es imposible saber exactamente que ha sido expoliado”, manifestó Amin. (LaRepublica.pe)

100-year battle for the iconic Egytian bust of Nefertiti

100-year battle for the iconic Egytian bust of Nefertiti | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

As Germany celebrates the centennial of the discovery of Queen Nefertiti bust on 6 December - the day when it was discovered a hundred years ago - can Egypt wrench back such a unique bust?

A century later and the dispute over its ownership has stepped from one level to another with no concrete solution in sight. Although Egypt provided all the documents supporting its ownership and that its German discoverer, Ludwig Borchardt, took it by fraud, Germany refuses all restitution requests proposed.

The story of the iconic bust began in 1912 at the archaeological dig of what was the workshop of king Akhenaton's court sculptor, Thuthmosis, in the capital city of Amarna when German Egyptologist Borchardt and his team stumbled upon a magnificent painted stucco and limestone bust.

Fond of its beauty, skillful carving and historical importance, Borchardt exerted all efforts to secure the bust for the German share. According to the antiquities law and regulation at that time all repeated and common spoils of any new discovery would be split between the Egyptian antiquities authority and the foreign mission concerned, while unique and distinguished artefacts must be placed in the Egyptian share.

The head of the International Union for the Preservation of heritage and former director of the Egyptian Museum, Wafaa El-Seddiq, told Ahram Online that according to documentation and, importantly, Borchardt's own diary, he knew the importance of the artefact on the first day of the discovery: the Egyptolotist clearly identified the bust as Nefertiti.

Antiquities ministry fights peddler's takeover of Egyptian archaeological sites

Antiquities ministry fights peddler's takeover of Egyptian archaeological sites | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The Ministry of State for Antiquities (MSA) filed a complaint Saturday with the Prosecutor General implicating officials of the Cairo governorate in the encroachments on two of Egypt’s archaeological and monumental landmarks.

Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) Mohsen Sayed claims that the Cairo governorate is building wooden and metal kiosks for peddlers in the archaeological zone of the Museum of Royal Carriages in Boulaq and Cairo's Northern Islamic Wall in the Gamaliya area.

Speaking to Ahram Online in a telephone interview, Sayed, described such construction work as a "disaster," and asserted that "It is a great violence against two of Egypt’s magnificent monuments and a real threat to our heritage." (Nevine El Aref/Ahram Online)

Morsy and Ahmadinejad did not discuss relations, embassy at summit

Morsy and Ahmadinejad did not discuss relations, embassy at summit | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Presidency spokesperson Yasser Ali said Friday that the meeting Thursday between President Mohamed Morsy and his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on the sidelines of the Non-Aligned summit in Tehran, did not address the issues of bilateral relations or raising the level of diplomatic representation between the two countries.

Ali told Al-Masry Al-Youm that the meeting did not discuss the issue of opening the Egyptian Embassy in Tehran, and the re-normalization of relations between the two sides, but focused on the issues on the regional arena, especially the situation in Syria and Palestine.

He quoted Morsy telling Ahmadinejad, “The public opinion in the Arab region believes that Iran's support of the Syrian regime distances it from the Arab world.”

According to Ali, Morsy reminded Ahmadinejad that the Arab people sided with the Iranian people when the Shah attacked them with tanks. Morsy was likely referring to the crackdown on demonstrators by Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in 1978, during the demonstrations that eventually toppled him. (Al-Masry Al-Youm)

Brotherhood threatened with dissolution by Egypt court

Brotherhood threatened with dissolution by Egypt court | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Cairo's High Administrative Court will on Saturday continue hearing a lawsuit calling for the dissolution of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The court postponed hearings on 19 June after further plaintiffs joined the lawsuit against the Islamist organisation.

The lawsuit was initally filed by Shehata Ahmed Shehata, who claims that the Muslim Brotherhood has unlawfully been carrying out both political and social activities for the last 80 years, despite being officially banned as a political organisation since 1954.

Shehata also accused the Brotherhood of failing to abide by a 2002 law governing the functions of non-governmental organisations, which prohibits such groups operating as religious-based political parties. The penalty for a group failing to abide by the law, according to Shehata, is its dissolution.

Shehata is also calling for the closure of the Brotherhood's headquarters and the freezing of its bank accounts.

Shehata Mohamed Shehata is a lawyer and head of the Egyptian Centre for Integrity and Transparency. He was involved in the legal case that led to the dissolution of the first Constituent Assembly.

The administrative court is also scheduled to rule Monday in a case against the Brotherhood's political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party, calling for its suspension.

The case is based on the party's alleged use of religious slogans, illegal for a political group. (Ahram Online)

Artisanat : Le travail de la finesse

Artisanat : Le travail de la finesse | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

De nos jours, les artisans qui travaillent dans les ateliers du Caire islamique, dans les grandes oasis ou dans les villages lointains de la Haute-Egypte puisent leur inspiration dans les formes d’antan. « Des centaines d’artisans continuent à fabriquer dans les grands centres commerciaux du Caire et d’Alexandrie, parfois aussi dans les oasis, des pièces en argent calquées sur les modèles anciens. Le promeneur qui erre dans les ruelles de Khan Al-Khalili a l’impression d’être dans une caverne de Ali Baba. Les vitrines des bazars sont remplies de vases et de coupes en argent, de plateaux, de chandeliers, d’aiguières, de boîtes à bijoux, de services à thé, de figurines … Dans ce souk, l’argent est un simple article de négoce. Souvent les discussions entre vendeurs et acheteurs ne tiennent pas compte de la beauté de l’objet, ou du soin mis à le réaliser, pour ne retenir que son poids et sa valeur marchande. L’âpreté des dialogues interdit toute poésie », explique Denise Ammoun, journaliste d’origine libanaise dans son livre L’Egypte des mains magiques, publié par l’Institut français d’archéologie orientale du Caire. (...)

Le résultat de ce travail de finesse se retrouve dans les bazars du Caire islamique et dans les boutiques des grands hôtels. « Certains objets sont la reproduction de modèles très anciens, tels les aiguières, les candélabres, les chandeliers à cinq branches, les célèbres miroirs ornés d’oiseaux, les brocs aux formes curieuses, les brûle-parfums, les assiettes gravées et ciselées, les plateaux aux motifs séculaires, les lampes à pétrole, certains vases … En revanche, d’autres objets sont nés des besoins modernes. On peut citer ici les services à thé ou à café, les beurriers, les cendriers, les moutardiers, les chalumeaux, les coupe-papier, les rince-doigts, les dessous de plats, les boîtes à bonbons … », indique Denise Ammoun.

The tragedy of books in Egypt

The tragedy of books in Egypt | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Thinking about these two incidents, I couldn’t help but compare our conditions in 1851 and in 2012.

During the mid-19th century we were truly a civilized nation, for we approached science with a spirit of free inquiry, not stopping twice to think about its provenance and not bothering about questions of authenticity, national identity or national security.

By contrast, now after our universities and libraries had failed even to preserve the books we had once translated and published, and after squandering our scientific achievements, we have been forced to seek our own scientific productions abroad.

Then, and to add insult to injury, we handed over the responsibility for protecting national security to employees at a censoring authority that has the chutzpah of naming itself the Office of Censoring Publications, and who prove with their mediocrity their utter ignorance of anything to do with knowledge, science or scholarly research.

My despondency, nay, fury, does not stem from the harm I know has been caused to free speech or academic freedom by those in charge of our national security. I too am concerned by our national security. But my fury arises from the deep conviction that national security is never achieved by banning books -- it is achieved, rather, by disseminating them.

Yet the newspaper also quoted the German defense ministry as saying that the government would not endorse the deal, a step the German shipbuilding company needs to conclude the deal. (Al-Masry Al-Youm)

Now, the Education Revolution

Now, the Education Revolution | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Despite attempts at reform, as in most authoritarian systems, education during the past decades in Egypt largely trained students to be obedient citizens. Oppression was administered through rote memorization, the unrestricted practice of violence in schools, the dilapidated and overcrowded classrooms in many of the underprivileged communities, the disrespect for both children’s and teachers’ rights, the large numbers of children not only out of school but ‘out of learning,’ the rapid proliferation of privatized education both through generalized and rampant private tutoring—what some have called the shadow educational system—and through for-profit education for those able to afford it. All this denied Egyptians access to quality learning, and thus to the right to dignity and equity, which became a core demand of the January 25 revolution.

Today, it is essential that a new vision for education be discussed and adopted—and this should occur as part of the process of drafting a new constitution. This will not be an easy task, given the political polarization in Egypt. Yet, make no mistake: the future shape of the educational system will have a profound impact on the country’s political, economic, and cultural development. The new debate will force Egyptians to address difficult questions in order to articulate a broad vision for society. What is the nature of the economic system and the relationship between private, cooperative, and public property? Is education to remain a ‘public good’? What is the nature of the democracy we are striving for? What is the role of civil society? What is the nature of citizenship and what are the fundamental values and skills the educational system hopes to contribute? (Lalak Zaalouk/The Cairo Review)

Le ministre des Antiquités a inspecté les sites archéologiques de la Nouvelle Vallée et confirmé l'ouverture du temple d’Hibis dans quelques jours

L’ouverture prochaine aux touristes du temple d’Hibis (oasis d’Al-Kharga) est rendue possible par les travaux de restauration effectués sur le site. Depuis plus de 25 ans, ce site a en effet souffert de dommages très importants (affaissement du sol sous l’effet d’eaux souterraines, fissures dans les murs...).
Les travaux de restauration ont porté sur une consolidation des murs et des portes, ainsi que sur une réduction de la nappe phréatique. Ils ont été complétés par l’installation d’un éclairage permettant les visites nocturnes.
Le ministre a également inspecté le site archéologique d’al-Bakha, qui comprend les vestiges d’une colonie romaine du 2e siècle de notre ère (constructions en brique, forteresse, temple) dont les visites seront facilitées par une signalétique en cnq langues (arabe, anglais, français, italien, allemand), ainsi que la nécropole d’Al-Bagawat, au nord du temple d’Hibis, liée à l‘histoire chrétienne en Egypte (église copte, temple Nadoura).

Egypt's Prez Faces New Test: garbage

Egypt's Prez Faces New Test: garbage | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egypt's newly elected president, Mohammed Morsi, is under growing pressure to answer that question.

He already faces a host of challenges: from secular Egyptians worried about his Islamist doctrines; from militants trying to stoke conflict with Israel, and from the poverty and joblessness that fed the Arab Spring and brought down the three-decade dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak.

To all those, add the rising tide of garbage in Cairo, the world's largest Arab city. Morsi declared it one of his top five priorities, promising to clean up the streets within 100 days. In so doing, he gave the electorate a powerful way of measuring his abilities, and it looks increasingly certain that 100 days will be nowhere near enough. (Sarah El Deeb/Huffingtonpost)

Damned to Cooperation

Damned to Cooperation | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Morsi, whose suitability for and approach to his country's highest office both merit some doubt, is now damned to cooperation with other political powers.

Mohammed Morsi is becoming Egypt's first democratically elected president under enormously difficult circumstances. He will have to find a way to cooperate with all political powers, says Loay Mudhoon

There is no question that Mohammed Morsi's election – in spite of the many disputes along the way – represents a historic moment. For the first time in Egypt's modern history, a relatively democratic process led to the election of Morsi, a candidate of the Islamist and conservative Muslim Brotherhood party. As leader of the country of 80 million along the Nile, he becomes the first civilian to serve as president in a post-colonial Arab republic.

But this break with the past does not mean Morsi can expect a smooth transition to power. After 16 months of revolutionary dynamics in Egypt, the heart of the Arab world, deep divisions have emerged. (Loay Mudhoon/Midan Masr)

Some of Egypt’s Women Still Await Their Own Revolution

Some of Egypt’s Women Still Await Their Own Revolution | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

After the fall of former President Hosni Mubarak, the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF) played a role in obstructing the efforts of the Egyptian Feminist Union, which was formed in Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo on February 13, 2011. SCAF ordered the formation of the National Council for Women (NCW), which does not differ much from the Suzanne Mubarak Council in its submission to the ruling authorities. The NCW is led by the same figures that worked with Suzanne Mubarak, along with other women's organizations that were formed during the Mubarak regime.

After the Islamic movement came to power, a number of women — wearing headscarves and the full face veil — have sprung to prominence, most notably President Mohammed Morsi's wife. However, none of these women are taking a stand for women's rights, which have increasingly deteriorated in the name of religion and Islamic law. Furthermore, these women have reiterated the stance of the dominant political currents, saying that female circumcision and the veil are an intrinsic part of Egyptian Muslim women's identity. They attack those who fight for women's liberation, accusing them of blasphemy or national treason, or at the very least saying that they have adopted the inferior morals of Western women.

Sauvegarder l’aspect esthétique des “Pyramides” | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Dans le cadre du plan élaboré pour sauvegarder l’aspect esthétique et le côté historique du plateau des Pyramides, les travaux se poursuivaient hier, d’arrache-pied, pour couvrir le lac de «Mansouriah».

Le projet établi de concert entre le ministère de l’Habitat, celui de l’Irrigation et le gouvernorat de Guiza, est d’un montant de 100 millions de L.E. et vise à couvrir toute la surface découverte située tout près du site touristique d’Al-Haram et qui est d’une longueur de 4 km et s’étend de Kafr Al-Gabal au sud jusqu’au grand musée au nord. 50% des travaux sont déjà terminés.
