  1. Islamic State sent a message to our people in Sinai and to Sisi, the so called Egyptian president. The message indicates that no one will save Sisi, not the Saudis, not the Americans or the israelites
  2. The Islamic State released today the latest edition of Dabiq magazine featuring former president of Egypt (Mursi). It is chilling to read.
  3. Egypt court bans Muslim Brotherhood's political wing There has been a violent crackdown on the Brotherhood and the FJP since last August A court in Egypt has dissolved the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the Muslim Brotherhood's political wing. The ruling will effectively prevent the banned Islamist movement from formally participating in parliamentary elections expected later this year. The government declared the Brotherhood a terrorist group in December. It was accused of orchestrating a wave of violence to destabilise the country after the military overthrew President Mohammed Morsi in July 2013. The Brotherhood has denied any connection to the jihadist militants based in the Sinai Peninsula who have killed hundreds of security personnel. At the same time, more than 1,400 people have been killed and 16,000 detained in a crackdown by the authorities on Mr Morsi's supporters. President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, a former military chief who was elected head of state in May, has vowed to wipe out the group. Analysis: Sally Nabil, BBC Arabic, Cairo Dissolving the Freedom and justice Party (FJP) was expected. The political wing of the banned Muslim Brotherhood movement can no longer compete in the next parliamentary elections, expected to be held before the end of this year. Its members can run either as individual candidates or form a new political party. But the latter is highly unlikely, given the severity of the crackdown on the Brotherhood. The FJP's legal team strongly criticised Saturday's verdict, saying that it is politicised and is meant to serve the goals of the current regime. There was no longer a place for pluralism in Egypt, it said. According to the new constitution, no party can be formed on a religious basis. Assets confiscated Saturday's ruling by the Cairo Administrative Court came after a report by its advisory panel that noted the FJP's leaders had been accused, and in some cases convicted, of murder and inciting violence. A police investigation found the party's headquarters and offices had been used to store weapons, it said. Mohammed Morsi, a former chairman of the FJP, is facing four separate criminal trials on various charges The court ordered that the FJP's assets be handed to the state. The case was prompted by a complaint by the government's Committee of Political Parties Affairs, which accused the FJP of "irregularities". The FJP was founded in 2011 following the uprising that forced Hosni Mubarak from power. It went on to dominate the subsequent elections for the lower and upper houses of parliament - Egypt's first democratic polls in six decades. But in June 2012 the Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) ruled that the vote for the lower house, the People's Assembly, had been unconstitutional and it was dissolved. The upper house, the Shura Council, was dissolved by the SCC shortly after Mr Morsi was ousted in July 2013, and ceased to exist after the constitution was amended in January. Mr Morsi, a former FJP chairman, is currently facing four separate criminal trials on various charges. Several other Brotherhood leaders, as well as hundreds of members, have been sentenced to death. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-28722935
  4. Opposition protesters in Egypt have clashed with members of the governing Muslim Brotherhood in several towns, leaving scores of people injured. In Cairo, the protesters ransacked one Brotherhood office, while in Mahalla in the Nile Delta the Islamist movement's headquarters was set on fire. Riot police fired tear gas as the two sides pelted each other with stones. Egypt has been rocked by violent protests this year, which have left dozens dead and many more injured. Divided country On Friday, several thousand activists supporters marched to Cairo's Mokattam area to face Brotherhood supporters and police guarding the movement's headquarters. Clashes erupted soon afterwards, and the riot police had to use tear gas to keep the two sides apart. Two buses owned by the Islamists were reportedly set on fire. "We came to the stronghold of the Brotherhood. No more protests in front of the presidential palace because those ruling Egypt are here,'' protester Hamat Awat was quoted as saying by the Associated Press news agency. Meanwhile, Brotherhood offices were ransacked by protesters in another part of Cairo and also in the second-largest city Alexandria. In Mahalla, petrol bombs were thrown at the Islamist office, setting the building on fire, the state-run Mena news agency reported. A number of Brotherhood supporters said they had arrived from neighbouring towns to protect their movement. The Brotherhood has recently seen several of its officers attacked across the country in protests against President Mohammed Morsi, the Islamist candidate who won last June's elections. The secular opposition accuses Mr Morsi of seeking to usurp power - a charge he denies.
  5. Hello dear readers, Assalam alaikum brothers & sisters, I would like to inform you about something that happened a few weeks ago, but I don't know whether the political room or the news room is the right place for it, so if I've put it into the wrong room please excuse me. I think it is important for you to know about the following. Please read through it and also listen to the testimonies of witnesses of this event that took place on 16.11.2012 in Egypt, Cairo and which has been hugely distorted by the egyptian press (Al Mesryoon) in a news article which has gone national in Egypt as well as international (covered by Russia and Sweden). There has been lies and propaganda distributed throughout Egypt and abroad trying to defame a religious minority group composed of peaceful students at a private learning center. They have made false accusations such as links to terrorism, links to AlQaeda, attacking border guards, and other truly ridiculous :excl: claims, even an assassination attempt on the Egyptian president. :huh: :mellow: These are all false and unwarranted accusations (!), none of these students have any weapons whatsoever. The Egyptian officials have conjured accusations and lies in order to incite the common people against these peaceful people gathering together in a 'school', where also women and children take part. This is not a small article as it has gone nationwide in Egypt (http://www.almesryoo...link/52371.html ) and is also covered by other countries like Russia (http://english.ruvr....ested-in-Cairo/) and Sweden (http://www.aftonblad...icle15794197.ab). !! Note the picture in the Russian article is forged, the whole article is a complete lie, none of the school members are inside that picture!! The Egyptian officials are furious because it is a school teaching the subject of Ahlulbayt, the family of Prophet Muhammad (pbuhp), which is something that the Sunni dominant Egyptians do not subscribe to. Please, whatever your personal belief regarding different schools in Islam is, be fair to yourself as a human being. If you do not consider followers of other Islamic schools as your brothers and sisters in Islam (which is a great claim), then remember that they are your brothers and sisters in humanity! If some of the Egyptian scholars and officials (who have a hand in this raid) have a problem with other schools of thought in Islam, then they can have debates and discussions with these students in a peaceful manner. And this does not necessarily mean to adopt the point of view of others, no, but it means to tolerate others and treat each other with respect! Just like the Quran instructs us when dealing with each other. But certainly it is not correct to raid their place and scare children, women (some pregnant) and everyone else; and afterwards to spread conflicting false accusations and lies to the public, just to incite the common people against a minority group. This is not right and Islam does not support it. Thank you for your attention. You can see video testimonies and responses of some of the students in the following youtube links (click "cc" for english subtitles): videos removed by admin [sect talk and hate speech] "If you are not careful, the newspaper will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing!" - Malcolm X -
  6. Egypt's ex-spy chief Omar Suleiman dies in United States Omar Suleiman was one of ex-President Mubarak's most trusted allies Omar Suleiman, who for years headed Egyptian intelligence under ousted President Hosni Mubarak, has died in the USA. He died in hospital in the early hours of Thursday, the official news agency Mena reported. Gen Suleiman, who was in his seventies, was appointed vice-president by Mubarak in the last days of his rule. He made a bid to stand for president in this year's election but was disqualified for technical reasons. Correspondents say he was seen as an enigmatic figure both inside and outside Egypt, and played a behind-the-scenes role in issues such as relations with the US and israel. 'Unexpected' Continue reading the main story In a statement, Egypt's interim government paid tribute to Suleiman, calling him a "patriotic, honest figure". An assistant to Gen Suleiman said his death was unexpected. "He was fine. It came suddenly while he was having medical tests in Cleveland," Hussein Kamal told Reuters news agency, adding that preparations were under way to take the body home for burial. Reem Mamdouh, a member of Suleiman's presidential campaign team, told AFP that the general's health had been declining. "His health deteriorated recently. He was in the United States with his family," he said. State news agency Mena quoted a diplomat as saying he had been suffering from lung disease and had also developed heart problems. Gen Suleiman headed the Egyptian General Intelligence Services (Egis) for 18 years. He became the country's first vice-president in 30 years on 29 January 2011, four days after the popular uprising against Mubarak began. Two weeks later, he appeared on state television to announce the long-time president had stepped down, prompting celebrations in Cairo's Tahrir Square - the focus of Egypt's protest movement. TroubleshooterContinue reading the main story A career in the miltary Born 1935 in Qena Joined army in 1954 Fought in 1962 Yemen conflict and Arab-israeli wars of 1967 and 1973 Named director of the General Intelligence Department in 1993 Appointed vice-president 29 January 2011 Disqualified as presidential candidate in April 2012 Profile: Omar Suleiman After failing to win enough signatures to stand in Egypt's first post-Mubarak presidential vote earlier this year, he left the country, reportedly going to Abu Dhabi, then to Germany, then finally to the US for treatment. The BBC's Jon Leyne in Cairo says Omar Suleiman was a key figure behind the presidency of Hosni Mubarak. As spy chief, Gen Suleiman helped enforce the police state that kept Mubarak in power, he says. He is believed to have indirectly saved Mubarak's life, advising him to take an armoured car on a state visit to Ethiopia in 1995 - his convoy was ambushed by Islamists.
  7. Muslim Brotherhood's Mursi declared Egypt president Mohammed Mursi is declared the winner of Egypt's presidential election Egypt votes Election results Future hangs in the balance Country at a crossroads Voices from Cairo The Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Mursi has been declared the winner of Egypt's presidential election run-off. He won 51.73% of the vote, beating former PM Ahmed Shafiq, the Higher Presidential Election Commission said. The head of the panel of judges, Farouq Sultan, said it had upheld some of the 466 complaints by the candidates, but that the election result still stood. The announcement prompted scenes of jubilation in Cairo's Tahrir Square, where Mr Mursi's supporters gathered. They have been maintaining a vigil there for days in protest at the series of decrees by the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (Scaf) which they say are designed to reduce or constrain the power of the president, and entrench the power of the military. 'Campaigns of scepticism' Supporters of Mr Shafiq had also been holding a rally in the capital's northern suburb of Nasser City, home of the headquarters of the election commission.Continue reading the main story Profile: Mohammed Mursi Live updates: Egypt election result Judge Sultan began the news conference by saying the declaration of the result had been "marred by tension and a bad atmosphere". "The commission applied the law when it looked into the ballots. There is nothing above the law," he asserted. The judge then dismissed what he said had been the two most serious complaints of electoral violations - that some ballots had been printed with the name of one candidate already ticked, and that Christians had been prevented from voting in a village in Minya governorate. He then spent several minutes announcing minor amendments to the vote tallies before suddenly revealing that Mr Mursi had won 13,230,131 votes, compared with Mr Shafiq's total of 12,347,380, or 48.27%. The turnout in last weekend voting was 51.58%, he added. Military power As Judge Sultan announced the victory of Mr Mursi, who is chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), huge cheers erupted in Tahrir Square. Tens of thousands of his supporters, as well as those of ultra-conservative Salafist groups, had gathered there to listen to the result on big screens. Troops were deployed outside the offices of the Higher Presidential Election Commission Many had camped out overnight to protest against what Islamists, secularists and youth activists have denounced as a military coup. On 13 June, the justice ministry gave soldiers the right to arrest civilians for trial in military courts until the ratification of a new constitution. The Scaf then issued a decree on Friday dissolving parliament in line with a Supreme Constitutional Court ruling that the law on elections to the lower house was invalid because party members had been allowed to contest seats reserved for independents. Two days later, just as the polls were closing in the run-off, the generals issued an interim constitutional declaration that granted them legislative powers and reinforced their role in the drafting of a permanent constitution. The military was also exempted from civilian oversight. Then on Monday, the head of the Scaf, Field Marshal Mohammed Hussein Tantawi, announced the re-establishment of a National Defence Council, putting the generals in charge of Egypt's national security policy. The generals have vowed to hand over power to the new president by 30 June, but their decision to dissolve parliament means he could take office without the oversight of a sitting legislature and without a permanent constitution to define his powers or duties.
