My Lady Gaga Regret - Published on May 18th, 2013Sometimes I get lazy about publishing my artwork particularly when video is added to the mix!As much as I believe that artists shouldn’t rush into publishing their first “hunch” and wait a bit for their ideas to “sink-in” and flourish, I sometimes use that as an excuse to take too long to share my creations with the world!There you have it: I admit it and I regret it!After procrastinating for weeks, I finally published the Egyptian version of Lady Gaga’s famous hit “Born This Way”Born This Way! – The Egyptian VersionPresident Morsy:My mentor told when I was youngYou’re born brotherhoodHe washed my brain And sealed my lip with a “lock”So I never understood!!!There’s nothing wrong with killing who say “No!”Oh Yeah! Cause we are superior breadSo hold your head up Morsy and you’ll go farListen to what people say…Opposition:You’re a failure in everywayIt’s your electors’ mistakeYou’re on the wrong track MorsyYou’re Egyptians dismayThe day will come you’ll regretHistory will never forgetYou’re on the wrong track MorsyYou’re Egyptians dismay!Though I would never compare myself to Lady Gaga “singing-wise”, I believe I did an ok job with the Egyptian adaptation.I invite you to watch the video to check out my singing style and enjoy my black-beard-makeover!The video is titled:“
I wish this was my one and only regret but I also shared my dishes regret in my personal branding video! And the list goes on and on…We live, we regret!
Because I LUV Egypt, I Nominate Donald Trump For President! - Published on April 27th, 2013Call me nuts but I am serious: If it is up to me, I would nominate Mr. Trump to become Egypt’s post-revolt president.Why so? Trust me, I have some damn good reasons…For those who may not know Mr. Trump, perhaps because they live in Europe or outer space, let me tell you what exactly I love about him in a nutshell.
The Trump is a multibillionaire New Yorker who created thriving businesses in every imaginable industry.In my humble opinion, Trump’s biggest strength, in addition to thinking BIG, is his superior leadership skills.He just knows how to spot the right people for the job. He can’t possibly KNOW everything about the zillion businesses he owns but he cherry picks those who do. Bam! His business booms and on to the next business…Genius!So Far So Good! But Why Is Trump Your Chosen Egypt’s President?Good question! I thought you’d never ask…Here is the deal: Trump may not be the sweetest, most vitreous, or most generous philanthropist out there, but he is a LEADER and that’s exactly what Egypt needs today!You see, we have countless bright minds in Egypt in all fields. If given the chance, they can turn Egypt into a first world country in a decade.Unfortunately, our current president is not so keen about selecting the most fitting candidates for key positions. Instead, he prefers hiring his kinships (aka Muslim Brotherhood members or advocates) everywhere possible even if they are NOT qualified!This is where Mr. Trump comes into play…I will ask him to leave his loved ones in the U.S. and become Egypt’s president for one week to fulfill one holly mission: Trump will be asked to objectively choose ministers and key position holders based on their competencies - not their political inclinations.I would wait eagerly for Mr. Trump in the airport and will gladly hold the microphone for him as he shouts out loud: “President Morsy! YOU’RE FIRED!”The Queen of Wishful Thinking!Suddenly, I woke up realizing that it was a just a dream…a beautiful what- if fantasy!What can I do for real? How can I “love“ my country if, to me, love is a verb?Well, I am using all my artistic talents and abilities to help paint a beautiful portray for Egypt’s future.Locally, I’ve been an active participant in major political events. In addition, I have an Arabic blog and a YouTube channel where I write and play comedy sketches, draw cartoons, write songs, articles and so forth.The internet is a perfect outlet for me to express myself sometimes…to say “No!” most of the time…to inspire fellow Egyptians to be bold and take a stand ALL the time!In addition, I believe that education is the cornerstone for Egypt’s progress. That’s why; I am a volunteer in a non-profit organization that teaches essential extra-curricular skills that newly graduates need to possess in order to enjoy successful careers.Finally, I can’t sum up this article without extending a heartfelt “Thank You” to SearchWarp for being my supportive bridge to the West.In spite of my super-busy schedule, I feel “obliged” to share my take on Egypt’s major events with the Western audience, hoping to gain support and raise awareness of our worthy cause.
I love my country and, to me, LOVE is a verb. Your help and support is much appreciated. Anyone has Mr. Trump’s private number? :-)
A Heartfelt "Thank You" to Jon Stewart For Defending Our Right to "Offend" Egypt's President! - Published on April 2nd, 2013Sometimes freedom of expression may seem offensive to some cowards...Talk about the theory of relativity!In Egypt, our new president is super-creative in inventing nasty tactics to cover up for his endless failures. The top 3 on the list are (in reverse order):3. Showering opposition and political activists with serious accusations backed up with ZERO evidence!
2. Coming up with the vaguest and most hilarious conspiracy theories!Now I am saving the best for last...the number 1 nasty failure-cover-up tactic is…drum rolls…prepare to be amazed: Arresting and interrogating media icons and comedians in account for "Insulting the President" and/or "Defamation of Islam!"Lucky for him, Bassem Youssef, the host of the most popular TV show in Egypt, was subject to a 5-hour investigation for the above charges. In response, Egyptians from all walks of life demonstrated in front of the interrogation location, carrying angry signs to support Bassem.Bassem came out wearing a funny replica of the hat president Mohammed Morsy wore when he received honorary doctorate in Philosophy. The picture says it all…Local support for a great cause is commendable yet almost predictable. But my pleasure was compounded when I came across Jon Stewart’s sincere defense for Bassem’s offence!In case you haven’t done already, I invite you to watch Stewart’s outstanding video.As expected of him, Stewart’s words were breathtaking and refreshing. (I started watching his shows and became a huge fan of his during the time I lived in Canada: 2002- 2007. Good days!)As my way of saying: “Thanks a million, Jon”, I wrote the following heartfelt comment on his video:LOL :) “Democracy NEVER ends by someone mocking your hat!” As usual, Jon nailed it! On behalf of all Egyptians, we all understand that arresting comedians is NO sign of strength! It's a glaring declaration of failure...The part that touched me most in this video was Jon's painful comparison between his freedom to "Mock!" presidents for years versus Bassem's early suppression! But we will keep fighting for the most precious right of all: FREEDOM. Thanks, Jon. You made Egypt's day :)
I can’t wait to read your thoughts and comments. Love, happiness and freedom to all…
Egypt’s Revolt Eye Witness (2) – The Shout Out Against Women Harassment! [LIVE PICS] - Published on Feb. 10th, 2013 I am sure that the barbarian sexual harassment against women in Egypt has been heavily covered in the Western media. That’s why; I am not planning to restate the obvious!Instead, I am proud to share Egypt’s street shout out with the world. I will be translating the signs that people carried in the march against violence and harassment that took place on Feb. 6th.
The Culmination of the Hurricane! It was Jan. 25th 2013, The 2ndanniversary of Egypt’s revolt, when I rushed to El Tahrir square with thousands of angry men and women to make our mark and say: “No!” to the new dictatorship that is boldly stealing our hunger for freedom and justice.It’s been a while I haven’t been to El Tahrir…I was overwhelmed with mixed emotions about how the future will unfold.To my dismay, I was FORCED to leave the square after several harassment incidents that took place. A brave woman told me that she insisted on staying in the square after being assaulted. Believe it or not: She was in her 50s!On my way home, I felt broken, lost and shattered…What can I do if I was banned from El Tahrir forever? Where else can I go to speak out, scream and shout?Later on, I was devastated to learn about outrageous rape incidents in el Tahrir on the 2ndanniversary of Egypt’s revolt!Like the sun penetrating the dark, Egyptian women took a stand and organized a massive march on Feb. 6th to el Tahrir square with a powerful slogan: “The Street is Ours”.Enough Talk! Let Egyptian Women “Walk The Talk”Allow me to become an ambassador to the Egyptian street and translate (in blue) the heartfelt signs that women passionately carried in their hearts before their hands.Green Section: If he bad mouthes you, kick him!
Pink Section: If he bad mouthes you, hit him!
Light green Section: No matter if I am revealed or covered, you can NOT touch my body.
Grey section: Say “NO!” to harassment The street is mine and NOT a place for harassment! STOP verbal and physical harassment!Sings held by the two women: Do NOT harass her! Be a man and protect her.Sign held by the beautiful girl to the left: Egyptian girls are REDLINE You Can NOT undress Egypt's women and you can NOT prevent me from expressing my opinion A Massive Leap in the Right DirectionThis great march was met by a worldwide response: Feb. 12th will witness a global protest. Egyptians residing in 24 countries will organize protests in front of Egyptian counsells in their countires at 11:00 AM, coinciding with the local time of each country.Please take a look at the passion glowing in these women's eyes and support our worthy cause in any way you can.
This is just a start...As God id my witness, we will NOT rest until every woman in Egypt can walk in the street with her head held up high and regian her right to become an active member in her coumminty. Pary for us.
