  • Egypt-style attacks on several Occupy campsDave Johnson
    November 20, 2011

    When Egyptians stood up to Mubarak they were met with tear gas and clubs. Once upon a time America had freedom of assembly, speech and protest. Even now, as long as protests don't take on the 1%, they are OK. But in today's America-for-the-1% protests, assemblies and speech against plutocatic, 1% rule is met with tear gas and police batons to the head.

  • Egypt: Back to revolutionDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    October 8, 2013

    Two months after Egypt's events of June 30, a domestic opinion poll found 68 percent of the respondents call the events a "revolution." But the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters in Egypt, Qatar and Turkey and some of the pro-democracy activists in the West still deny that the events should be called a "revolution."

  • Egypt: Dignity, Democracy and Social JusticeDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    April 21, 2011

    Seven years ago a new political party in Egypt was formed, Al-Karama (Dignity). On May 30, 2004 it applied to become an official party but it has never been approved because it was outspoken against Mubarak, his family and his corrupt regime. The party was of one of the forces behind Egypt's January 25th Revolution. Its leader Hamdeen Sabahi, a journalist, ran for parliament as an independent. He won in 2004 and lost in 2010 but he is intended to run in the presidential election later this year. In Cairo last week I met his deputy, Amin Iskander, an engineer from my Cairo’s birth place; Shoubra.

  • Egypt: Economy not politics is relevant than everDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    June 29, 2012

    The top priority of Egypt's new president must be achieving both economical development and social justice. He should not occupy himself with political issues, like quarreling with the military about the powers that they still hold, until the new constitution is written and approved. Alternatively, if Egyptians hear from him the usual political Muslim Brotherhood narratives, they will topple him before his term of office is over.

  • Egypt: How would you rate the presidential candidates? Part 3/4Dr. Mohamed Elmasry
    May 22, 2012

    In the area of social justice including reducing poverty (currently at 40%) and unemployment (currently some 4 million are unemployed and a new one million is seeking employment every year) my proposed plan for Egypt's next president based on studying the experiences of 6 developing countries (China, India, Malaysia, Turkey, Brazil and South Africa) is to rely firstly on encouraging the co-op sector by offering loans with very low interest, massive training to do feasibility studies, sales and marketing, and training the trainers.

  • Egypt: Justice, in or out of courtDr. Mohamed Elmasry
    June 30, 2012

    On Earth there is no such thing as justice, in or out of court; this is how the popular saying goes. Many Egyptians last Saturday firmly believe so following the sentencing of their 84-year old ex-president Hosni Mubarak and his Interior Minister Habib el-Adly to life in prison and the acquittals of Mubarak's two sons and six top police officers.

  • Egypt: Pope Shenouda's historical sin The Canadian Charger
    February 16, 2011

    Coptic Pope Shenouda III is not only a religious figure. Largely as a result of the precarious situation of Copts in Egypt, he has also felt it necessary to engage in Egyptian politics. Unfortunately for him, he recently bet on the wrong horse, namely Hosni Mubarak.
