The Military Dialogue

I went to the nearby election committee today, but not to vote. I went and I saw the long queues of voters, people whose right to vote, whose freedom to vote has been paid for by the blood of those who can no longer share in the experience. I saw the posters of candidates, and it occurred to me – that I had never seen most of them in Tahrir. They are not leaders, they are vultures, preying on our dead. I wanted to take some photos and wanted to shoot some video as outlined in an idea I explained in this video on YouTube. Instead I got into a 2-3 hour conversation with a lieutenant colonel from the army. He had overheard me speaking to a friend I ran into, it was clear that my position towards the military was one of distrust, and he wanted to discuss that with me. I started off with the standard disclaimer, that I am primarily discussing SCAF, and not really the entire army. That...

“Alas,” said the mouse, “the whole world is growing smaller every day.

The Cat & the Mouse – Franz Kafka We all know WHY the elections are ridiculous – • We have fresh blood on the streets – everybody’s been busy in battle. • Nobody has had time to study the process OR the candidates. • Even university graduates don’t understand the process. • Treason law has been issued, but far too late to be used this time. • They are a logistical DISASTER as outlined by @Egyptocracy in this document here...

Three weeks ago, an Egyptian Muslim mother and wife, four months with child, was stabbed to death in Dresden, the civilian city bombed to the ground by the allies during World War II. She was stabbed in full view of her son and husband, and when her husband rushed to defend her, he himself was shot by the German police because they assumed him to be the attacker. Go figure. For the last three weeks, I’ve heard people say, and I’ve said it myself based on what I’ve seen – that the international media hasn’t found this story quite as interesting as that of The Death of Neda Sultan. I’ve now done the numbers: As of today, a search for Neda Sultan on Google, brings up about 1.14 Million results (I’m accounting for spelling variations by adding up the results for ‘Soltan’ and ‘Sultan’ – so this is the total of the two) for Neda. A similarly conducted search for Marwa Sherbini (with...
