Egyptian Chronicles: When Gameela spoke on behalf of millions of Egyptians

Egyptian Chronicles: When Gameela spoke on behalf of millions of Egyptians | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

(...) I would like to thank Mrs. Gameela Ismail for representing millions of Egyptians and speaking on their behalf in front of US department of State secretary John Kerry

(..) I would like you to spread this word of Mrs. Gameela Ismail, the member of Constitution Party all over the social media because this letter is actually represents what millions of Egyptians when it comes to Egyptian American relations.


Here is what Gameela told John Kerry from two weeks ago in Cairo.

 

Mr Secretary of State,
After consideration, I have decided to accept the invitation, which I received in a personal capacity, to attend this meeting today. I do not represent the Constitution Party here because it has a chairman who should have been invited properly, something that had not happened. My address is aimed at your accompanying delegation of future makers. Part of it is for you.
Mr Kerry, you are here today with a large team of people who, according to reports, will be in charge of foreign policy in the future. I mean the future which we are paying a heavy price for today. This is why part of my speech is addressed to you, Mr Kerry, while the larger part is for your team.
You are presently in Egypt at a very complicated juncture, one in which we are living pain, hope, dreams, nightmares, revolution and tyranny all at the same time. Let me sum up to you what I would like you to see with us.
Egypt does not need new aid. Egypt needs to build a new relation on new foundations, not those laid since Nixon’s visit in 1974.
Our country is not a guinea pig. You supported a semi-military regime in the past. Now you are supporting a semi-theocratic regime so that each would play the role required of it. You supported Mubarak to the last breath. You stood in the way of a people’s dream to come out of the labyrinth of dictatorship. You can deal with our revolution as an “uprising” as you describe it in your statements. For us it is a “revolution” which is still in progress. Honourable people have paid the ultimate price to build a country in which we feel freedom, justice and dignity. We did not have a revolution to repaint the presidential palace or for the protocol official at your embassy to update his contacts book. Had Lincoln, whom your country celebrates, stopped at purchasing new clothes for the slaves and retained slavery America would not be proud today of its freedom or saying that its democracy makes it strong.

Egypt court halts April elections

Egypt court halts April elections | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

An Egyptian administrative court has suspended general elections that were scheduled to begin next month.

It said it acted because the upper house of parliament had not returned the amended electoral law to the Constitutional Court for review.

The poll - set by President Mohammed Morsi for 22 April - has been boycotted by the main opposition.

It has said the electoral law favours Mr Morsi's Islamist supporters - a claim denied by the president.

La grève des policiers se poursuit en Égypte

La grève des policiers se poursuit en Égypte | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

Des milliers de policiers en grève partout en Égypte ont refusé de retourner au travail jeudi, pour protester contre ce qu'ils qualifient de politisation des forces en faveur des Frères musulmans, dont le président Mohamed Morsi est issu.

Au Caire, des douzaines de policiers ont bloqué l'entrée d'un des principaux postes de police de la ville et ont exprimé leur colère envers les politiques de M. Morsi. D'autres se sont regroupés devant le domicile de M. Morsi à Zagazig, au nord-est de la capitale.

La grève, qui en était à sa quatrième journée, représente une rare occasion où des policiers défient les ordres de leurs supérieurs. Le mouvement menace d'affaiblir les forces de sécurité égyptiennes, déjà ébranlées par deux années de troubles à la suite du renversement du président Hosni Moubarak.

Les policiers protestent entre autres contre la possibilité d'être jugés devant un tribunal militaire et se plaignent que les lois ne les protègent pas quand ils doivent remplir leurs fonctions.

Mentionnons que pendant des décennies, la police égyptienne a ciblé les Frères musulmans et d'autres groupes islamistes considérés comme illégaux.

Jeudi, le ministère de l'Intérieur a déclaré dans un communiqué qu'il se tenait à distance égale de tous les partis et que le ministre était objectif dans ses décisions.

Cette grève survient quelques jours seulement avant qu'une cour ne rende son verdict contre des accusés qui se sont retrouvés devant la justice à la suite d'une émeute qui a fait 74 victimes à Port-Saïd. Neuf membres des forces de sécurité font partie des 73 accusés dans ce dossier. (Radio-Canada)
