Take A Renaissance Break!

Don’t suppress your inner eerie feelings aroused by our beloved country’s current unstable situation. Express your feelings and sufferings, start to write, yell and protest against the unknown ambiguous future for our country.

And here I am … I have decided to pick a pen and write on a paper. While I was starting to write,  I found that popular advertising slogan “Express Yourself!”. I took a deep breath mixed with the smell of my daily coffee and started to write, but I then stopped to recall the time when I used to present Al Shaab Yourid Talk Show on Tahrir channel and my decision to resign after the Channel had been biased to satisfy some officials who are entrenching fascism and suppression in the country. I decided to quit this battle more determined to join those standing against oppression and willful killing of Egyptians by people seeking to gain empowerment through terrifying and killing opponents brutally.

While being absent-minded for a period of time, my pen was scribbling in the page of my beloved homeland, its roots date back to 7000 years, on which deep-rooted people finally live freedom following protracted decades of oppression, and after the youth paid the price with their innocent bloods; dreaming of a homeland brings a smile to its people’s faces.

I started writing on the paper’s blank part, why? This is the non-creative chaos that we face in our daily life under a regime becoming a tyranny; keeping the track of a former dictator and through adopting imaginary decisions in which we see our president as “Super Morsi”, who will defeat all his opponents with a kick.

But I believe that we are now in the middle of a story, as the president is still facing as well as learning martial arts rather than talk arts.

Simply, he left today his peers to join his foes in the Egyptian police, which announced its unprecedented wide strike; refusing the so-called brotherhoodizing the police authority, and led them to kill the protesters in order to involve them in the biggest killing case that Egypt witnessed in the modern age.

On the other side, the jailbird – Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya (the Islamic Group) has once again emerged after its most recent statements about the willingness to swap the roles with the country’s securities authorities.

In fact, the Islamic Group desires to play the role of the police officer under another brand new name ‘The Security Militias’.  The prominent figure in the Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya Assem Abdel-Maged,  expressed on Friday the group’s keenness to take over the responsibility for the security of the country amid the recent strike staged by hundreds of policemen.

The police officer who would leave his duty, shall not return to it, Abdel-Maged noted arousing concerns that the ‘Jailbird’ will be eventually the ‘Jailer’.

Also on Friday, the Egyptian army staged its biggest rally to preserve the country’s facilities and vital areas since the outbreak of January 25th revolution.

Amid the withdrawal of the whole police force from streets in Port Said, the Egyptian army rallied to secure the city and may be later to eventually protect and liberate the whole state from a regime that killed the citizens, raped women, tortured the youth, starved the nation, put prices up,  and aroused a new hostility between the nation and the police officers.

The court’s ruling on the Port Said Football Massacre which resulted in 73 deaths and 254 injured, is actually a turning point in Egypt’s history whether it would lead to further bloody clashes or to justice and fair retribution.

Justice still remains the fortified corner that shall be alienated from the political arena which have been already overcrowded by politicians and political analysts as the legal adviser to the President has predicted with certainty that the judge of Port Said football massacre case will delay pronouncing the verdict of at least 21 defendants and his prophecies were not fulfilled.

Despite the recent events, take a respite and look at the daily newspapers and portals to find the results of the real ‘Renaissance’ which are occurring in the streets and houses. You tend to feel overwhelmed by the president’s image on front page attached with his bright promises alongside the fancy statements made by Muslim Brotherhood prominent figures.
