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? :-)
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.
