Goodbye, Gamil Ratib


Egypt has suffered a great loss today, as Gamil Ratib, a fantastic actor who made many of his roles unforgettable, died at 92. Aside from being a wonderful actor, Gamil was also a kind, gentle, and intelligent human being who stood with the Jan 25th revolution and loathed the massacre committed by Sisi and the military in Rabaa. The day after Mubarak was removed, Gamil warned the revolutionaries not to leave the square, saying that although the head of the mob had been removed, the rest of the gang remained. 

His first name, Gamil, is Arabic for ‘beautiful,’ and he truly was just that. He will be sorely missed.
