"La situation du service des antiquité demeure encore un peu confuse même si le nouveau responsable tente d'apaiser les craintes et arrêter les grèves. Il a confirmé l'emploi de plus de 16000 personnes mais reste la question du financement et surtout la question des jeunes diplomés n'a pas été réglée. Dr Amine (nouveau responsable) annonce que 750 millions seront mobilisés pour payer les travaux sur de nombreux chantiers et que le gouvernement doit verser 350 millions de livres égyptiennes aux antiquités. Mais la semaine dernière, des grèves universitaires ont eu lieu." (François Tonix/Pharaon Magazine)

Cairo clashes mask a more insidious threat to a democratic future

"Violence underlines the quieter moves by Egypt's military rulers to kill off any genuine shift towards a free society.

It should come as no surprise that Sunday night's violent clashes, which again brought death and chaos to Cairo's streets, took place on a day that saw many other developments underline the febrile power struggle at the heart of the Egyptian capital." (Jack Shender/The Guardian)

A Assouan, la renaissance d'un mythe

A Assouan, la renaissance d'un mythe | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Célèbre pour avoir reçu, depuis plus de un siècle, tous les grands de ce monde, l'hôtel égyptien de Churchill, Agatha Christie et François Mitterrand renaît de ses cendres. Après trois années de lifting complet, La « Grande Dame du Nil » ouvre à nouveau ses portes (...).

Une alchimie de rêve, de fantasmes, d'intrigues, d'Histoire et de poussière. Un vaisseau princier amarré sur la rive droite du Nil, très haut placé dans la liste du top ten des hôtels mythiques de la planète. Encore aujourd'hui, au seuil même du Old Cataract, les portiers nubiens, vêtus d'uniformes brodés et coiffés de traditionnels tarbouchs, semblent échappés du passé. Car après trois années de rénovation intégrale, tout a changé ici... excepté l'esprit des lieux." (Marie-Angélique Ozanne/Le Figaro)

Sectarian strife threatens Egypt

Sectarian strife threatens Egypt | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Christians blame Egypt’s ruling military council for being too lenient on those behind a spate of anti-Christian attacks since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak in February. Egypt’s Coptic Christian minority makes up about 10 percent of the country of more than 80 million people. As Egypt undergoes a chaotic power transition and security vacuum in the wake of this year’s uprising, Christians are particularly worried about the increasing show of force by the ultraconservative Islamists."

Egitto, l’ira dei Copti arriva al Cairo - L’analysi

Egitto, l’ira dei Copti arriva al Cairo - L’analysi | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"L’uccisione di ventiquattro manifestanti, durante la protesta copta al Cairo, è l’ultimo di una serie di episodi di violenza verso i cristiani che si sono verificati in questi mesi in Egitto. Spesso di questi fatti non sentiamo parlare nei media perché sono episodi secondari che avvengono in luoghi isolati, dove agli odi etnici si mischiano i rancori familiari. Come nel piccolo villaggio di al-Nawahid, nell’alto Egitto, dove qualcuno ha incendiato alcune case che appartengono ai cristiani del luogo. Anche questa volta, dietro ai morti del Cairo, c’è una di queste storie che hanno per contorno la campagna egiziana." (Matteo Colombo/Panorama.it)

Maspero Massacre : Nobody wins , Egypt Loses

"Today is a very sad day in the history of Egypt. Nobody actually won , everybody has lost especially Egypt , the poor Egypt that deserve this.

Egypt loses when the Egyptian blood is being spelled like that for cheap political gains.

Egypt loses when its official media , its official media “sponsored by the Egyptian tax payers” calls for sectarian clashes on air !!

Egypt today is sad and angry. Egypt today is mourning. We will need a lot of time to fix the sins committed by SCAF and the army , a lot of time indeed and it is not about political concessions. There is blood." (Zeinobia/Egyptian Chronicles)

"If Egypt is to become a more pleasant place to live it needs to do more than stamp out corruption and implement democracy. The political “clean-up” of Egypt needs to go hand in hand with a societal “clean-up” of community values, and an examination of what can be done to make the city nicer for everybody."

Maspero and sectarianism in Egypt

"The clashes that broke out a few hours ago at Maspero, the large Downtown Cairo building near Tahrir Square that houses the Egyptian Radio and Television Union (basically, state TV and radio), are a deeply worrisome turn in Egypt’s fledging transition.

Worrisome because they started off at a protest of Christians (joined by some Muslims) over restrictions on church-building and have taken on a more sectarian overtone than anything we’ve seen so far.

Worrisome because, while the initial spark to the confrontation between the protestors and the army is still unknown, the army crackdown was quite brutal, as (...) videos show. This marks the first time that the army has taken such an aggressive posture against a predominantly Christian protest, which will easily lead the framing of today’s events as the first time that the military chooses to kill protesting Christians."
