Egyptian Islamists put sharia law on agenda after election gains

Egyptian Islamists put sharia law on agenda after election gains | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Egypt's Islamist party plans to push for a stricter religious code after claiming strong gains in the first round of parliamentary elections.

Islamists led by the Muslim Brotherhood and radical Salafists appear to have taken a majority of seats in the first round of Egypt's first parliamentary vote since the ousting of Mubarak. (...)

Salafi groups speak confidently about their ambition to turn Egypt into a state where personal freedoms, including freedom of speech, women's dress and art, are constrained by sharia.

"In the land of Islam, I can't let people decide what is permissible or what is prohibited. It's God who gives the answers as to what is right and what is wrong," Hamad said. "If God tells me you can drink whatever you want except for alcohol, you don't leave the million things permitted and ask about the prohibited." (The Guardian/Associated Press)

Une candidate salafiste :"Je rêve d'être 'commandeur' des croyants" | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Et cette candidate aux élections d'ajouter :"Si j'étais 'commandeur' des croyants, j'interdirais la mixité et j'obligerais les femmes à se vêtir de noir. Je souhaite que soit appliquée la Loi islamique et que l'on coupe la main aux voleurs. Je souhaite rendre visite à Moubarak en prison. Les femmes ont un manque d'intelligence et de sens religieux. Elles n'ont pas les aptitudes voulues pour accéder à la présidence de la République."

أتمني تطبيق الشريعة الإسلامية وقطع يد السارق .. وأتمني زيارة مبارك في السجن
النساء ناقصات عقل ودين ولايجوز لهن الترشح للرئاسة

Egypt awaits delayed election results

Egypt awaits delayed election results | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Egypt said on Friday the country's first post-revolution election had seen a record turnout but it again delayed the release of full results expected to show Islamist candidates sweep to victory.

At a press conference by the election commission chief Abdel Moez Ibrahim, already pushed back by two days, he began announcing figures before abruptly leaving the room saying he had "no more energy" and had "run out of gas."

His incomplete announcement of results in some constituencies made it difficult to discern the overall trend, but he did reveal that turnout had been a record "since the Pharoahs" at 62 percent." (Adam Plowright/Your Middle East)

Ancient Christian city discovered in Egypt | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"An ancient Christian city dating to the fourth century AD has been discovered in Egypt.

Archaeologists digging at the Ain al-Sabil area of the New Valley Governorate have discovered the remains of a basilica and buildings to serve the priests. This is the first excavation at the site and researchers hope more discoveries will be made under the Egyptian sands." (Sean McLachlan:gadling.com)

Descubren en Luxor una estatua del abuelo de Tutankamón

"Una estatua monumental del faraón Amenhotep III (1390-1352 a.C.) ha sido descubierta por un equipo de arqueólogos egipcios en la ciudad de Luxor, 670 kilómetros al sur de El Cairo, según las autoridades egipcias.

El Consejo Supremo de Antigüedades de Egipto (CSA) señala en un comunicado que la pieza es “gigante” y que fue hallada durante unas excavaciones en el área de Qarna, donde se encuentra el templo de Amenhotep III.

La estatua, esculpida en cuarcita con vetas de distintos colores, tiene una altura de 13 metros y medio y un peso de cien toneladas." (elmostrador.cultura)

"Welcome to The Republic of Heliopolis" (un pied de nez un peu trop facile à la situation politique actuelle de l'Egypte)

"Welcome to The Republic of Heliopolis" (un pied de nez un peu trop facile à la situation politique actuelle de l'Egypte) | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"After the results of the first round of the parliamentary elections, there were several calls to declare the independence of the Heliopolis district from the rest of Egypt. Hey, we’re the only district where a liberal beat a Muslim Brotherhood by a landslide. We’re the only district that voted for a candidate with long hair whose girlfriend is a movie star. People in Montazah, Alexandria, voted for a guy who called democracy haram or forbidden. The prick then used the democratic process in order to get a parliament seat!

So we can presume that it is quiet understandable why we want to be separated from Egypt. Why we want nothing to do with the rest of our previous country.

To make things simplier, I decided to propose how our new country will look like. So ladies and gentlement, welcome to The Republic of Heliopolis." (The Big Pharaoh)

 

J'ai relevé ce commentaire d'un lecteur :

"I do realize this is supposed to be satire, but I just have to say that rich liberals such as yourselves will NEVER understand the rest of this country and therefore can really never contribute to the rest of the country reaching its potential. You mock and denigrate the poor and uneducated in English on the internet because you can get away with it and your only contact with them is as your maids and drivers and bawwabs and office “boys”. If we had a truly economically fair country, the truth you don’t want to face is you probably couldn’t afford their services anymore because you would have to pay them a lot more than you do now."

Coptic Christians Living In Egypt Speak Out (VIDEO)

Coptic Christians Living In Egypt Speak Out (VIDEO) | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egyptians don't have it easy. But Copts, the Christian minority in Egypt, have it worse. In the last month, Coptic Christians were attacked while marching to mourn the victims of past sectarian violence. And a looming question - What does such treatment of Copts mean for the Arab Spring? - remains unanswered.

In this video, two Coptic women share their stories about the hardships of being religious minorities in Egypt.

Égypte : quand les islamistes du PLJ soignent leur image sur le web 2.0

Égypte : quand les islamistes du PLJ soignent leur image sur le web 2.0 | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Dans l’Égypte révolutionnaire où ils sont en tête des législatives, les Frères musulmans ont compris l’utilité des réseaux sociaux, outils phare du Printemps arabe. Sur Twitter, le Parti de la justice et de la liberté (PLJ) dispose de son compte officiel : @FJparty. (...) La mouvance islamiste est également bien implantée sur le « roi » des réseaux sociaux Facebook, où 165 000 fans suivent l’actualité du PLJ, qui dispose aussi de nombreux sites d’informations sur la Toile, comme sa plateforme officielle Ikhwanweb.com.

À première vue, la raison de cette forte présence des Frères musulmans sur le Web 2.0 est évidente. « Comme les autres acteurs du monde politique, ils ont compris que les réseaux sociaux offrent l’opportunité de s’adresser à l’opinion et d’établir un lien social », note François-Bernard Huygue, chercheur spécialiste des stratégies de l’information à l’IRIS et interrogé par jeuneafrique.com.

Mais derrière les « like » Facebook du PLJ, se cache autre chose qu’une simple présence sur le web 2.0. « L’une des raisons de la venue des islamistes sur les réseaux sociaux est la recherche d’une certaine respectabilité à l’échelle internationale », poursuit Huygue."

Prostate metastatic bone cancer in an Egyptian Ptolemaic mummy, a proposed radiological diagnosis

Prostate metastatic bone cancer in an Egyptian Ptolemaic mummy, a proposed radiological diagnosis | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"There is great interest in the history and occurrence of human cancer in antiquity and particularly in ancient Egyptian populations. Despite the number of Egyptian mummies and skeletons studied through various means, evidence of primary or metastatic cancer lesions is rare. The Digital Radiography and Multi Detector Computerized Tomography (MDCT) scans of a male Ptolemaic Egyptian mummy, from the Museu Nacional de Arqueologia (MNA) in Lisbon displayed several focal dense bone lesions located mainly on the spine, pelvis and proximal extremities. The exceptional detail of the MDCT images allowed the proposed diagnosis of osteoblastic metastatic disease, with the prostate being the main hypothesis of origin. These radiologic findings in a wrapped mummy, to the best of our knowledge, have never previously been documented, and could be one of the oldest evidence of this disease, as well as being the cause of death.

► A Ptolemaic Egyptian male mummy was studied in Lisbon, by X-rays and high resolution MDCT. ► Several medullary bone sclerotic lesions, were found. ► These lesions are very suggestive of osteoblastic secondary cancer. ► Their distribution pattern, morphology, and the genre and age of this mummy, are all in favor of a prostate origin. ► This proposed radiological diagnosis could be the oldest case of this disease, and the first in a wrapped Egyptian mummy. ► This case would also favor the occurrence in antiquity of this most common form of modern male cancer."

Fraud of Phase 1 of the Egyptian elections

"Voting papers all over the floor some are not counted, other boxes not opened some papers replaced, a total chaos. The video shows an argument about that featuring lots of candidates (parties & independent) a lot of them are complaining about this while the Freedom and Justice candidate & his agents are fighting back and saying the elections are not manipulated and this is an attempt to ruin the image of elections. This happened in the liberal area of Heliopolis, so it's easy to imagine how much worse it was elsewhere. Also the frontrunner was very worried during the footage of this video."

"Nous sommes la vraie Égypte"

"Nous sommes la vraie Égypte" | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Au Caire, il y a ceux qui manifestent leur soutien à Tantawi et ceux qui réclament son départ. Il y a surtout ceux qui ne manifestent pas. (...)

Les manifestants de Tahrir comme ceux d'Abbassiyya se présentent comme l'expression de la majorité silencieuse. Tous de tendance libérale, les premiers penchent pour les partis révolutionnaires, les seconds pour ceux représentant la loi et l'ordre. Mais en dehors de ces places, la majorité silencieuse semble s'être exprimée dans les urnes pour une autre voie. En dehors des manifestations, aucun des Égyptiens que l'on interroge ne s'est prononcé pour les libéraux. Tous ont voté pour les Frères musulmans ou les salafistes d'Al Nour. Les manifestants font dire beaucoup de choses à la majorité silencieuse. Mais cette dernière semble choisir un autre chemin." (Samuel Forey/Le Point)

Egypt's elections risk turning into complete farce

Egypt's elections risk turning into complete farce | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"The first round of results in Egypt's election was in danger of slipping into farce on Friday night as the judge in charge of announcing them said he was "too tired" to do so. (...)

He added that conditions at the count had been difficult, taking place in a "dimly lit room" where it was "impossible for anyone to do his job".

After years of rigged ballots under the rule of the toppled dictator, President Hosni Mubarak, some problems with running a free and fair elections were expected but Mr Ibrahim's excuses will arouse fears among some over their validity.  (...)

But at that point in the late-night press conference, while reporters prepared themselves for results expected to show Islamists sweeping to an even greater victory than they had predicted, he suddenly left the room.

"I have no more energy, I've run out of gas," he said. He asked reporters to work out the results themselves from the complex documents provided to them." (Richard Spencer/The Telegraph)

"The Obama administration spent some $200 million on democracy building in the lead-up to the elections this week in Egypt.

But with 65 percent of the vote going to Islamist candidates, it doesn’t appear the money was well spent.

Stephen McInerney, executive director of the Project on Middle East Democracy, told Campaigns & Elections magazine that $65 million went to Egypt after the uprising that toppled President Hosni Mubarak and an additional $100 million was earmarked for economic development but also to train Egypt’s nascent political parties."

Un taux de participation de 62 %... mais des résultats qui tardent à venir

Un taux de participation de 62 %... mais des résultats qui tardent à venir | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Les autorités égyptiennes ont salué vendredi soir le taux de participation "historique" aux premières élections législatives de l'après-Moubarak, mais sans être encore en mesure de fournir les résultats par partis de ce scrutin où les islamistes sont donnés largement gagnants.Le président de la Haute commission électorale (HCE), Abdel Moez Ibrahim, a annoncé devant la presse un taux de participation de 62%, le plus élevé en Egypte "depuis les pharaons jusqu'à aujourd'hui" a-t-il dit.

Mais il s'est déclaré incapable de donner la répartition des voix par partis de la première phase lundi et mardi de cette élection-marathon, alors que les partis islamistes assurent avoir remporté au total près de 70% des suffrages, écrasant les formations libérales et laïques.

"Ce dossier est trop volumineux, moi, je n'ai plus d'énergie...", a déclaré le chef de la HCE, interrogé sur les résultats des partis politiques en lice, dont l'annonce a déjà été reportée plusieurs fois. Il a renvoyé à la publication "bientôt" sur internet des résultats bruts du vote district par district." (Libération)

Egypt blogger Maikel Nabil wins Freedom Award

Egypt blogger Maikel Nabil wins Freedom Award | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Embattled and imprisoned Maikel Nabil has not received the same attention as his fellow jailed cohorts. Until now. The International Federation of Liberal Youth (IFLRY) in Turkey has named the young Egyptian blogger the first IFLRY Freedom Award winner for “his firm commitment to freedom.”Nabil was part of IFLRY’s delegation to the Liberal International (LI) Congress that took place in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, in 2009, but sprung to international attention after being arrested on March 28 this year after allegedly “insulting” the military on his personal blog.

On April 10, in a case widely seen as the first of its kind in the post-Hosni Mubarak Egypt, Nabil was sentenced to three years in jail by a military court.

The young blogger, who holds controversial views concerning Israel, including calling for normalization – which has left him outside the massive “No Military Trials” campaign started by a group of local activists – has been on a hunger strike since August 23." (Joseph Mayton/Bikya Masr)

Le face-à-face périlleux entre la police et le caméraman

Cf. l'article de Jack Shenker, dans The Guardian :

"Through clouds of smoke, two black-clad and face-masked central security troops advance steadily towards the camera, pausing every few seconds to fire shotgun rounds that whistle perilously close to the screen.

On one side of the street is a column of armed riot police; on the other, hundreds of stone-throwing youths, their heads wrapped in scarves, bodies occasionally crumpling to the floor as another volley is fired.

And in the middle of it all stands the cameraman, Mostafa Bahgat. "This stretch [of road], this little distance, is the most important 15 metres of urban space in our country right now," says the 31-year-old film-maker. "If I'm not there to record what is happening then the lies of the state will go unchallenged. If I wasn't in that place, at that time, I couldn't live with myself. It's what I have to do."
