The Egyptian Situation: Extremely Worrying and Unpredictable
Saturday, 10 August 2013 01:00

During updated this site with two pieces on the current Egyptian and the nightmare which has been unfolding in that nation. So when I started thinking about a new update I was contemplating writing something about the Israeli Palestinian conflict now that these two perennial antagonists have started talking again under the auspices of the Obama administration, when Israeli and Palestinian negotiators met on Tuesday July 30, in Washington and gave themselves about nine months to try to reach a final status agreement to end their more than six decades of  hostility, but I decided to forget about these talks because I am almost certain that like the many similar attempts during the last sixty or more years these are not going to achieve anything, this is nothing but a public relations gimmick, the breach between the two sides is simply non-bridgeable, this is nothing but an attempt to divert the attention from the terrible situation which is currently pervading the middle east, with the extremely dangerous situations in Syria, Iraq and Egypt, which are threatening very serious and tragic consequences, so I decided to talk once more about what is happening in Egypt.


The Egyptian situation: The Dreadful Schism
Sunday, 21 July 2013 17:36

In my last update to this site which was about the recent events in Egypt, I said that the Muslim brotherhood have received a very heavy blow, but they are not going to accept what happened to them in a gentlemanly way or graciously.  They are going to strike back, but I never imagined that they were going to retaliate that soon after their defeat, because by the time the previous update appeared on this site what I have said then was already history, these people have been in politics for almost a century, they have been well established in Egyptian society through their extensive social work and superb organizational skills and discipline.  On Friday July 5, and after midday prayers, the deposed president’s supporters staged a series of marches across Cairo, about 2,000 of them advanced towards the headquarters of the Republican guard where the ex-president is believed to be held by the military, troops opened fire when they tried to force their way into the facility, they killed three and injured dozens.  Troops later on restored calm in Cairo, but the violent protests which were taking place at the same time in many places in the country left 36 dead and almost a thousand injured, the brotherhood has vowed to continue their fight until their man was reinstated, which is going to be a long and costly struggle, but their history gives a very strong credence to their current position.

The Egyptian Situation: The fall of President Mursi and the Brotherhood
Saturday, 06 July 2013 18:35

During the last week of June 2013, Egypt was boiling with an intense rebellion against president Mursi, the opposition was trying to force him to resign, but he did not oblige.  Mursi was hoping that the Muslim brotherhood which has got him the presidency will come to his rescue.  His refusal to step-down created a very dangerous polarization of the Egyptian society and threatened a civil war, which impelled the army to intervene and gave the conflicting groups 48 hours to resolve the deadly political crisis, but if the president and his opponents failed to heed the will of the people the army would interfere with its own road map for resolving the crisis.  The army’s ultimatum was rejected by Mursi, so the army chief said he was imposing a plan which included the suspension of the constitution, the president of the constitutional court is to assume the role of an interim leader until a new president is elected and the formation of a government by technocrats.  Since the plan was rejected by the president the army went ahead and executed their plan on Wednesday July 3, 2013 which resulted in the dismissal of the president when army commandos came to take him to an undisclosed defense ministry facility.  Thus also the decades old dream of the Muslim Brotherhood of establishing an Islamist rule in Egypt was left in ruins.

The Hanoud Letter: 200,000 Guests
Saturday, 22 June 2013 23:54

On Wednesday, June 19, 2013, The Hanoudi Letter site reached the 200,000 mark. This was a great thrill and a wonderful accomplishment, not because  I deserved that honor, but because it was a genuine acknowledgment of the blog’s usefulness and its fairness and honesty in the way it presented the news and the facts it provided during its four and a half years of  existence, but I would like to emphasize that this modest work has been to a great extent the result of the selfless and very generous encouragement and support from a countless number of people,who with their interest and backing kept the spirit alive and helped me survive the very turbulent and stormy last years of my life, to all these wonderful people I would like to say, thank you very much and god bless you and protect you. Now, I am going to say few words about the story of the birth of TheHanoudi Letter, and go back to four updates which mean a great deal to me personally, because they represent my attitude and reaction to the problems our very troubled world.
