"أنتظر رؤية ابتسامتها عندما ترى #الأهرامات لأول مرة، وآمل أن توفر لنا هذه العطلة ذكريات تبقى معنا إلى الأبد".. هكذا قال الشاب الأمريكي، داستن فيتال، الذي يقوم ببيع شرائح اللحم بالجبن من أجل جمع تكاليف رحلة لوالدته المريضة بالسرطان لـ #مصر

#Pyramids #Egypt #VisitEgypt Image
وكتب فيتال مقالا نُشر في مجلة "#نيوزويك" الأمريكية، قال فيه إن والدته قد نشأت في أسرة منخفضة الدخل، ولم يكن لديها الكثير من المال عندما تزوجت، وظلت تعمل طوال حياتها حتى إنها لم تكن تحصل على أي إجازات

To comprehend the scale of this thing a series of three animations follows.

On Saturday 3rd April 2021, #Egypt put on a lavish parade in the capital #Cairo to locate 22 mummies from the Egyptian Museum to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation.
2/
Images of the slick 4 mile parade and an equally carefully choreographed opening ceremony were broadcast live on state television, to rousing music and a 21-gun salute.
3/
The procession, dubbed the "Pharaohs' Golden Parade", of 18 kings and 4 queens travelled in order, oldest first - each aboard a separate vehicle decorated in ancient Egyptian style.

The carriages were fitted with shock absorbers for the trip, to ensure they had a smooth ride

3/ 🚨How many times were we close to sinking?
A lot. Some stories are mind boggling. I will get to that thread one day. Most of the times we came out strong, but a few times, It was really rough. We only made it because we believed in each other.

#Pakistan-#Egypt FM-level talks.

Issues: #Libya-#Yemen-#Gulf-#Ethiopia-#Gaza-#Kashmir.

Robust military ties but overall weak political exchanges between #Cairo & #Islamabad.

Yet @ImranKhanPTI-@AlsisiOfficial governments have recently been in contact to upgrade cooperation.
#Pakistan & #Egypt revive stalled ties. Pakistani foreign minister meets President Al-Sisi. Agreement to launch high-level political consultations next month. #PakMilitary will participate in drills in Egypt in summer. /2

#Pakistan & #Egypt are often considered two players with imp roles in ensuring #Gulf stability, along regional & intl partners; can help in Mideast peace, in Yemen, in fighting extremism & extremist groups. These are recurring themes in discussions:

1/ Seems #Haftar has pulled off a last minute upset after finding himself being cornered by his allies locally and internationally.
While his allies find themselves shuffling to make sense of yesterday’s developments, Haftar is positioning himself as sole negotiator of the east.
2/ For #Haftar to successfully achieve this goal, he will need to carry out a hard reset as his advisors are now blamed for failing to secure a new executive consisting of their allies.

#Agila is facing heavy criticism both socially and politically in Eastern #Libya.
3/ #Agila was warned by constituents to avoid a deal with #Bashagha and to have a back up plan that allows a ‘socially’ acceptable candidate take his place such as #Baraghthee of #AlWafi (in that order).

The competition for social credit is now between #Haftar & #AlMnefi.

Laure #Daccache (Laure Dakkash, 1917–2005) è stata una grande #cantante libanese di origine maronita.
Fu una bambina prodigio e nel 1926, a soli 8 anni, incise due suoi brani, “Touloul El Fajr” e “Hani Haninen“, per la #Baidaphon, etichetta discografica di #Beirut.

Negli anni '30 si trasferì al #Cairo, come moltissimi altri musicisti, in cerca di lavoro. Qui approfondì lo studio dei repertori tradizionali muwashshah e dawr, diventandone in breve un’esperta e acclamata interprete.

⬇️(2/6)

Rimase sempre legata al bisogno di coniugare testi di alta qualità poetica alla musica di altrettanto pregio.
La sua voce era precisissima nelle modulazioni, nell’intensità e nei melismi; suonava pure il liuto, si accompagnava da sola nel canto e dirigeva l’orchestra…

#Egyptian regime crackdown continues against human rights group @EIPR after staff met with Western ambassadors in #Cairo.

Security Forces arrested executive director Gasser Abdel-Razek from his home on Thursday, the 3rd employee arrested this week
google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.…
I’ve known Gasser since the 1990s when I was a Reuters correspondent in Cairo who would often call him at the Hisham Mubarak Centre to comment on cases.

He is one of the most sincere and big-hearted activists I have ever met. He truly loves Egypt and the fight for its liberation
Gasser’s detention comes after Egyptian security forces detained two other EIPR employees:

Karim Ennarah, the head of the group's criminal justice department, was arrested Wednesday while spending vacation in Dahab, Sinai, His whereabouts and the charges he faces are unknown.

So students of the #Egyptian Police Academy can parade shirtless for Sisi but the regime arrests women - fully dressed - for selfies and videos on TikTok? h/t @almudenariverob Shirtless men
The more clothes #Egyptian men remove, the more they are celebrated for virility - from the police academy to celebrities
#Egyptian women are criminalized, slut-shamed & punished in the name of “morality” - whether they are in “revealing” clothes or hijab. Actress Rania Youssef faced jail in 2019, for "inciting debauchery" over a dress bbc.in/2D2JY32

Prosecutors now say it was an attempted robbery and not sexual harassment that preceded the dragging murder of this young woman. The original arrest warrant charged the men with sexual harassment. I believe they dropped that when they saw the public outcry. #Egypt

Mariam M, an #Egyptian woman in her early 30s, was killed in #Cairo after men who had been sexually harassing her from inside their car as she was leaving work dragged her body through the streets and dumped her broken, bloodied body and escaped.

When the State punishes rape victims and not rapists, when the State itself is a rapist, predatory and patriarchal, it gives a greenlight that women’s bodies can be abused and broken by all.

When I became a journalist in #Egypt 30yrs ago, I learned that victims of rape didn’t go to the police because the police would shoo them away or rape them because the women were considered “damaged goods anyway.” I wrote this about women speaking out now feministgiant.substack.com/p/why-do-they-…
Back in 1990, I was told that rape victims, if they were affluent, went to a psychiatrist in search of ways to not fall apart, to keep stitched tightly those seams of silence which are now bursting open in #Egypt.
At a feminist gathering in #Cairo in 2013 organized by a women’s group I worked with,a lawyer told us that a rape victim who did decide to go to the police could be locked up in a room at precinct for 24hrs to protect her from her family in case they tried to kill her from shame.

Between this and “anarchist jurisdictions” it is obvious that many if not most people in the US know fuck-all about anarchism
I’m writing a book about anarchist feminists and I’ll be sure to include an explainer to debunk the “jurisdictions” etc

What would a feminist revolution look like in #Egypt? I explain in my latest essay.
When I became a journalist in #Egypt 30 years ago, I learned that victims of rape would not go to the police to report what had happened to them because the police would either shoo them away or rape them because the women were considered “damaged goods anyway.”

What about now?
Back in 1990, I was told that rape victims, if they were affluent, went to a psychiatrist in search of ways to not fall apart, to keep stitched tightly those seams of silence which are now bursting open in #Egypt.

Another small, but significant step, towards restoring tolerance in #Egypt

Of course, this is #Egypt that Tamara and Co. know nothing about!
Another great renovation project is completed in #Egypt.
The iconic #Sednaoui department store in the heart of #Cairo is now open.

When I was a journalist in #Egypt, I interviewed @BaheyHassan dozens of times. He represents the integrity and courage of human rights defenders. And this farcical trial and outrageous sentence represent the fascism and depravity of the Sisi regime. amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
A “terrorism” court in #Cairo sentenced exiled Bahey el-Din Hassan, a prominent human rights defender and one of the founders of the human rights movement in #Egypt, to 15 years in prison on fabricated charges related to “insulting the judiciary” and “disseminating false news”
#Egypt continues to be an open-air prison for those human rights defenders who are not already behind bars or in forced exile, as authorities slap bogus state security charges on anyone who dares to criticize them or their draconian laws...” @amnesty

#Egypt is building new Singapore as its newest capital.

Thread: (Updated) ⚡🇪🇬

For more than 1050 years #Cairo has served as Egypt's capital.
But since 2016 a brand-new city has been constructing to serve as the new one. The New Administrative Capital (NAC) is its name. ImageImageImageImage
It was also reported to be named "Wedian" (Arabic plural for Wadi/ Valley). NAC is located 45km east of #Cairo on 700 sq km total area (equivalent to the size of 🇸🇬) that would have a population of 6-7 million.

Coordinates: 30°01'39"N 31°45'54"E ImageImageImageImage
A joint venture company is managing the project, containing the following key departments:

- New Urban Communities Authority NUCA (Ministry of Housing)
- National Service Project Organization NSPO (Armed Forces)
- Armed Forces National Lands Projects Agency. ImageImageImageImage

Soon after I moved to #NYC in 2002, I began a relationship with a Black man. We lived together for 3yrs. Very soon after we became a couple, I insisted we boycott Arab (Yemeni, I believe) owned stores in our neighbourhood because of their anti-Black racism.

#BlackLivesMatter
The men behind the counter in those stores didn’t know I speak Arabic. And when Marcus and I would go in together, they would say the most disgusting racist shit about Black men and why I was with a Black man. I confronted them. Shamed them. And boycotted them. #BlackLivesMatter
After one yelling match with them, I reminded them that post-9/11, Arabs or Muslims who knew what being profiled or being subjected to discrimination and violence was like, should be the last people to be racist.
