Watching defiant @EmmanuelMacron press conference, standing by #Lebanon, and clearly blame #Hezbollah and his allies.
But he offers nothing about what’s next?
. @EmmanuelMacron
“Hezbollah and Amal movement unwilling to do any concession”
“The failure is their, not mine”
#Lebanon
#Macron is visibly angry and frustrated.
Who can blame him, after dealing with such corrupt politicians in #Lebanon.
. @EmmanuelMacron
“I feel ashamed on behalf of your leadership”!
#Lebanon

Ouch!
. @EmmanuelMacron genuinely care about #Lebanon. But he struggles to understand that the collapse of #Lebanon is what Nasrallah and Iran #WANT.
The failure of the French initiative is DELIBERATE.
A collapsed of Lebanon is Iran’s wet dream.
I stopped counting how many times @EmmanuelMacron said #Hezbollah in his press conference!
#Lebanon
While @EmmanuelMacron speaks about the future of #Lebanon, #Lebanese army is fighting Sunni radicals in the north of the country; one of its soldiers died.
That should give you a glimpse of the future. Sunni militants, Shia ones in south, middle class leaving the country!

#Thread #Iran
If you just tuned in, you will see how Iran's TL is full of images and videos of protests all over the country following the death of #Mahsa_Amini who was accused of improper wearing of Hijab.
Here are few thoughts. 1/
Since I attended late Shah funeral in Egypt, I developed deep interest in Iran, which increased immensely, after I visited the country years ago. Unlike Egyptians, the people of Iran fully understand the pain of living under an Islamists regime and have no illusions about it 2/
Protests against Islamic Republic is not new:
-1999 Students protests
-2009 Presidential election
-2011/12 protests (influenced by Arab spring)
-2018/19 strikes & protests against economic situation
-2021 uprising of thirsty due water shortage
All failed to uproot the regime 3/

كل اللي بيهاجم #محمد_صلاح معندوش أي مشكله مع الاحتلال العثماني .
أفندينا ولي النعم علي قلبهم احلي من العسل.
لكن مستعدين يلفقوا صور علشان يفكروك بالاحتلال الانجليز ( اللي محدش بينكروا) علشان يخونوك ويخونوا صلاح.
لجان منظمه شغلتها اللعب بعواطف الناس واللعب بالتاريخ علي مزاجهم
ما فعله #محمد_صلاح هو ما فعله الرئيس السيسي وشيخ الازهر— تقديم واجب العزاء.
أين الجريمه بالظبط؟

On #Britain, #Egypt and the passing of Her Majesty #Queen #Elizabeth 1/
Although many in #Egypt expressed sadness for the passing of the Queen, others commented negatively on her legacy, recalling colonialism, the Suez conflict, and the 1956 war 2/
I too, didn’t forget the history of conflicts between the 2 countries.
My late Mum proudly gave me this coin commemorating the withdrawal of British forces in 1956 3/ ImageImage

On #Egypt’s Sisi visit to #Qatar:
This visit signals a start of an era of pragmatism— a post Muslim Brotherhood era 1/
Unlike 2017, the #Muslim #Brotherhood as a group, is severely weakened, and becomes irrelevant to the relations between Qatar and Egypt.
Its fans can mock Sisi’s visit to Doha but their barks mean nothing on the ground 2/
What’s on the agenda in Doha is not just economic relations as Islamists claim, but there are several political topics on the agenda, like #Gaza, #Sudan, and most importantly #Libya 3/

Spectacular U-turn in #UkraineRussiaWar

#Ukraine forces have penetrated Russian lines to a depth of up to 70 kilometers in some places; captured over 3,000 square km in the past 5 days —more territory than Russian forces have captured in all their operations since April!
Around Kharkiv, Ukrainian forces have begun to advance not only in the south and east, but also to the north. They are 50 kilometres (31 miles) from the border, according to Ukrainian General

Remembering the #SixDayWar, #Egypt didn’t just lose #Sinai, it lost its progressiveness and opened the gate to #Islamism that slowly controlled its society like a cancer that is hard to uproot.
We regained Sinai, but until we regain our modernity, Egypt will continue to struggle
Immediately after the #SixDayWar, Islamists creeped in, claiming that we lost the war, not because of reckless Nasser, but because #Egypt became godless decedent society. They preached that victory will only happen when women wear hijab, and religiosity dominate! 2/
In 1971, Sadat didn’t just release many Islamists imprisoned under Nasser, he changed the constitution, asserting that Islam is *the* source of all legislations.
This *the* is what Islamists still use to argue for enforcing Sharia on society.
