Two Pockets Of Resistance !

Updated on August 9, 2013

1.My son,
Egypt is the land
Where devils strolling as freely
As angel wings snap.


2.Sun beats down like tyrant
Who, with iron fist
Crushes leafy shady trees
As well as delicate flowers along the Nelios
But two pockets of resistance
In two spots are made of steel too
Will never ever kneel
Before the new pharaoh,Sissi.


3.O Democracy
an ensnarement
with a golden adieu, you
are a tattered ray
because of the military boots.

      Egypt is for Egyptians.Very nice but it would be better if direct this cute saying to Obama s administration which had funneled money to secular opposition groups in Egypt to sabotage Morsi,because there is documents obtained by the Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley show that the US vigorously supported activists and politicians who have fomented unrest in Egypt, after autocratic president Hosni Mubarak was ousted in a popular uprising in February 2011.Morever,An article from Mike Giglio of the Daily Beast(not Aljazeera hahaha) details to what lengths the youth rebel group, Tamarod, and the Army collaborated in the time leading up to the coup:

      In the days and weeks before the protests, Waleed al-Masry, a central organizer, was in regular contact with a group of retired military officers. These retired officers, Masry says, promised to protect the protesters who turned out on June 30. They said they were reaching out on behalf of the Army’s current commanders. “We didn’t ask them for help. They just offered it,” Masry says. “And we welcomed that.”

      Masry and the rebels not only gained the cooperation of the army, but also of the police and the recently snubbed judicial system.

      “The country’s institutions—the police, the Army, the judges—were clear from their messages in the media that they were in favor of getting rid of [Morsi]," Moheb Doss, one of Tamarod’s co-founders and main organizers, told The Beast. Then they received “individual communications between Tamarod people and state institutions.”If it is not a conspiracy could you explain to me . the sudden end to Egypt's crippling energy shortages, as reported by Ben Hubbard and David D from New York Times,not Aljazeera.

      People in the US are quick to call someone a dictator or terrorist because their views do not reflect their own. I understand that Morsi's party believes in some things, especially that from a women's rights standpoint, that the general American public does not agree with. That does not mean that he is a dictator. He did make a move to grab executive and judicial power across the board because he knew that there were some efforts made by Supreme court to outset him and that was for short time till all governemental instituitions settled, but he backed down after resistance from the remenants of the old regime which they selfclaimed “ opposition“.The dictator is the one who dictates every move and watch every action. The world is filled with dictators you know that and there is not a day where a life is ruined by stringent idiots running society's machines of government, In a world where profit is preferable to altruism, there will never be a fair leader or group of leaders.

      Things will be changed in Egypt and will of people will stamped the ousters!!

      peace my dear friend.

      Michael,

      Well,20 or 30 million Egyptians in Tahrir square is unrealistic and surrealistic for the simple reason that 30 million people represent more than third of the population of the country.The Egyptian military junta and its coalition thought that the more they keep repeating that number, the more it become true as Mark Twain famously said “A lie will go round the world while truth is pulling its boots on.” haha my dear friend as I told you do some research before jump into conclusions lol because physically and mathematically is impossible to have 20 or 30 million people in the streets of Cairo and other cities.

      1.Let s be generous and exaggerating that the area surround and including Tahrir Square is 50,000 square meters .

      2.Let s assume that 4 people per 1 square meter, then we have 200,000 people in Tahrir Square.Check that by calculator haha before you do that I recommend you to use Google-Earth to check the area and take into considerations that the area is occupied by buildings, and trees and so forth.lol

      3. For Tahrir Square to hold 1 million protesters, we have to assume an area of 250,000 square meters and then assume that 4 people per square meter, which gives us 1 million protesters. However, the area that gives us 250,000 square meters is just not realistic and we have to remove buildings and flatten that area of Cairo to fit 1 million people.

      4. More realistically, let s take the streets, boulevards and avenues that the protesters occupied that day and let s calculate that the area that can realistically be used by people in Tahrir Square and its surrounding streets is about 96,000 square meters. Let us rounded it up to 100,000 square meters.Assuming 4 protester per 1 square meter, the total number of protesters in and around Tahrir Square could not exceed more than 400,000 protesters. This is nowhere close to the 1 million protesters advanced by the military junta and repeated by every pro-military junta.

      Therefore, the basis upon which the Egyptian military justified and legitimized its intervention and coup d’etat of July 3rd is bunk, and it is total nonsense. The popular-uprising-legitimizing-the-military-coup narrative is debunked since it is based on false premise, lies, and mathematical impossibilities. The numbers and the math don’t justify or legitimize the coup. So what does? The pro-Mubarak clan does. What happened on July 3rd was not a revolution or even a popular uprising, it was a coup conducted by the pro-Mubarak counter-revolutionaries. It is as simple as that.

      One other point,I told you before I gather my information from many resources.I am not a proAljazeera and Muslim brotherhood is smart peaceful party .The sit-ins and marches they organized were peaceful and plus can you do me two favors :define Terrorism and search for who is Nevin Malak?

      Peace.

      James .. you have the belief that the Al Jeezera news is the only one that tells the truth ..? LOL Sorry but they also slant the news toward their Islamic brotherhood ideals ..! if all these Egyptians wanted to be dictated to .. then who were these Millions of people protesting ?? did they bus them in ... No they were Egyptians .. .. Christians are now under attack .. from Muslim brotherhood thugs .. .. Sorry James but you must quit listening only to Al Jeezera.. propaganda.. and open your eyes to the reality of one world together ..peace for all men .. No to terrorism ..!

      Michael,

      From where did you pick up that ?? please,next time do some research before you utter something like that :)I mean no offence because according to Pew survey, 60 percent of Egyptians want to return to Sharia law and 75 of Egyptians surveyed had a favourable view of the Islamist group.This is what people want and the whole world should respect the will of people.Besides,dealing with Brotherhood by the catalog of 54 is not realistic.The game is over .In the streets there is not only brotherhood but people from different sections;Christians,Muslims,liberals,communists .. It is the real revolution,the succession of 25 January.

      in reality ..all govts are backed by the military .. if they were not they would be overthrown every day .. Morsi was a elected official who wanted to be a dictator when trying to ursurp total authority from the people .. they did not rebel because he was a good man ..could millions of Egyptians be wrong .. they did not want want muslim doctrines .. thry wanted western laws and freedom from repression.

      Nichael,

      it is better to be idealist than a tinhorn dictator, self-seeking opportunist or someone like who enriches himself and his kins at the expense of the poor citizens.It is not those idealists who refuse to listen but the military-backed government as Frans Timmermans, Dutch foreign minister, says after his recent visit to Egypt.

      push as you may .. but from where you stand the words fall on empty ears .. people are dying because of idealists who refuse to listen or see the others that perpetuate these wrongs.
