Cairo, Egypt | April 9, 2012

The Muslim Brotherhood's presidential candidate Khairat al-Shater held his first press conference as an official candidate on Monday, April 9, where he spoke about his national renaissance project to rebuild Egypt, stressing the need for economic and political reform.
Al-Shater noted that his presidential campaign motto is “Renaissance, Popular Desire," claiming that he aims to revive and rebuild Egypt and its institutions.
With regard to the last-minute presidential candidate Omar Suleiman, Mubarak's short-term vice-president and former intelligence chief, Al-Shater said that he rejected any attempts of "reproduction" of the former regime of Mubarak. He also referred to Suleiman's candidacy as an insult to the revolution.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – MB Presidential Candidate Khairat al-Shater:
"Personally, and according to those I am dealing with, we strongly reject the attempt of the reproduction of the former regime's political system in a modified form represented in the person of General Omar Suleiman. We see this as an insult to the revolution and unawareness of the nature of change that happened to the life map of the Egyptian people and its efficiency."

Al-Shater added that Suleiman's nomination was an attempt of "revolution robbery", warning that the Muslim Brotherhood and all Egyptians will hold massive rallies in the streets in case of any attempt to steal the revolution and forge Egypt’s first post-revolution presidential elections.
SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – MB Presidential Candidate Khairat al-Shater:
"If there is any attempt to steal the revolution or any attempt of forgery, normally we and others will protest in the streets. There's no other way. We as Egyptians, not as Muslim Brotherhood, sacrificed and blood was shed not to return the one who used to be a vice-president and was prepared by Mubarak to be his successor in October. The people said their word and strongly rejected that attempt, and ousted Mubarak and Omar Suleiman."

Al-Shater noted that Egypt’s economy faces grave dangers because of the corrupted system of the former regime, illustrating that a new political system with restoration of security were needed for the advance of Egypt’s economy.
He stated that investment in Egypt, small enterprises and the private sector must be encouraged to boost economy.
Al-Shater said that his program depends mainly on several axes starting with rebuilding of Egypt’s post-revolution political system, the restructure of the Interior Ministry and the development of education and economic system.

STORY: Omar Suleiman's Profile

STORYLINE:

Omar Suleiman, 75, has served as Egypt's Vice-President for 14-days after the resignation of Hosni Mubarak, and 18 years as Intelligence Chief during Mubarak's presidency.
He is also a last-minute candidate in the first post-Mubarak presidential elections.
Suleiman recently announced he would not run for president, but said he went back on his decision in response to popular demands and rallies urging him to join the presidential competition.
Many Egyptians were not familiar with Suleiman and many claim they have never heard his voice except when all Egypt and the world listened as he announced Mubarak's historical resignation on February 11, 2011.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Omar Suleiman as Vice-President announcing Mubarak's resignation on February 11, 2011 (archive):
“In these difficult circumstances that the country is going through, President Hosni Mubarak has decided to give up his post as president of the republic and authorized the Supreme Military Council to run the state affairs.”

During the time of Mubarak, Suleiman was assigned with brokering the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation and the Palestinian-Israeli negotiations.

He paid a visit to Tel Aviv in 2010 to meet with Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak to "promote negotiations" between the Israeli and Palestinian sides.

He is seen by some Egyptians as charismatic and powerful, although silent most of the time.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Egyptian citizen:
"Suleiman surely has a very strong expertise in politics. We all understand what he did during the time of Mubarak. He was the intelligence chief and he was fully aware of politics. He has political shrewdness."

Islamist presidential candidates consider Suleiman's candidacy "an insult" to the revolution and its victims.

Suleiman was appointed as Intelligence Chief in 1993 and was appointed as vice-president from January 29 to February 11, 2011.

He is married with three children.

Former Egyptian intelligence Chief Omar Suleiman paid a visit to the headquarters of the Supreme Presidential Election Commission (SPEC) Saturday, April 7, to inquire about the application process to run for Egypt's first presidential elections after the revolution.
Suleiman arrived to the SPEC amid high presence of security and military police, guarding the building prevented media representatives from reaching Suleiman.
The head of the SPEC stated that the purpose of Suleiman's visit was to only "inquire" about the application procedure to run for the presidency and not to officially submit his application.
Suleiman recently announced his intention to run for president in response to a rally by hundreds of his supporters calling on him to change his mind after he announced Thursday that he would not run.
Hundreds of supporters of Suleiman gathered at Cairo's district Al-Abbasiya carrying banners, reading "Suleiman, save Egypt" and "Don't leave us to the Muslim Brotherhood" and shouted statements showing support for Suleiman. They see him as a man who can restore stability in Egypt.
As a candidate, he could appeal to the army and voters worried about the prospect of a rise to power by Islamists that were repressed by Mubarak.
Suleiman, 75, served for years as Mubarak's head of military intelligence and General Intelligence Service. Mubarak named him vice president in January last year during a popular uprising that ousted him.
The deadline for SPEC receiving presidential candidacy applications is tomorrow, Sunday 8 April.

Cairo, Egypt | April 6, 2012

Thousands of protestors headed from Al-Fateh Mosque after Friday prayers in Ramsis square downtown Cairo to Tahrir square on Friday, April 6, in support of Islamist Salafist presidential candidate, Hazem Salah Abu-Ismail who may be disqualified from the race after it was announced that his mother was an American citizen.

Protestors see that it is a campaign against Abu-Ismail, which aims at excluding him from Egypt's first post-revolution presidential elections.

Protestors are carrying banners and posters supporting their candidate, chanting anti-military council slogans and other slogans including, "The people want Hazem Abu Ismail," "Islamic, Islamic, "Quran is the constitution".

Protestors denied allegations that Abu-Ismail's mother is American, urging that there is no evidence.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Egyptian man:
"I am here today to support Sheikh Hazem Salah Abu-Ismail because according to the law, that only recognizes documented evidence, if anyone gets an American passport they have to, while in the United States, record video and voice while he is swearing his allegiance as a citizen before the court".

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Egyptian man:
"I'm here with all my brothers to support Sheikh Hazem Abu-Ismail even if his mother holds Israeli passport. We will support Sheikh Hazem Salah Abu-Ismail".

Protestors stressed that they wouldn't allow manipulation, chanting "we’ll live with dignity" which is the motto of Abu-Ismail's presidential campaign.

Abu Ismail said that he faced a "plot." His campaign chief said that the country's military rulers were looking for ways to disqualify the candidate.

Allegations that Abu-Ismail's late mother held a US citizenship surfaced last week after he officially submitted his candidacy papers with the signatures of around 150,000 voters to the Supreme Presidential Election Commission (SPEC) and became an official presidential candidate.

The SPEC reported lately on Thursday that it received an official letter from the Interior Ministry’s Immigration and Naturalization Department confirming that Abu Ismail’s mother, Nawal Abdel Aziz Nour, entered Egypt on a US passport in the last five months before her death.

The Egyptian electoral rules exclude anyone who, or either of their parent, hold another (dual) nationality from running for Egypt's top post.

Ousted Mubarak and his gang were in lay for Eng. Khairat al-Shater with all kinds of traps.” The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s largest and best organized group, decided to field Al-Shater as a presidential candidate although they officially stated late April 2011 that they did not intend to nominate a presidential candidate in the future.
The move is seen as a big plunder by the Brotherhood as it negatively affects their popularity, credibility and good name.
Mohamed Khairat al-Shater, 62, is married with ten children and ten grandchildren. He is a successful engineer and businessman, yet he was jailed several times during the time of Mubarak over charges against the Muslim Brotherhood. He was released in March 2011.

Beirut, Tripoli, Lebanon | April 4 and 5, 2012

Lebanese Minister of Social Affairs Wael Abu Faour announced Wednesday, April 4, that there are 15,500 Syrian refugees in Lebanon according to the registered numbers at Lebanon's Supreme Commission for Relief and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR).

Abu Faour stated that the number changes on weekly bases depends on security conditions in Syria, stressing that the issue of Syrian refugees in Lebanon is only a humanitarian issue, not political.

He has earlier requested the Cabinet approval of financial support to the Social Affairs Ministry to develop its centers at some areas of the Syrian refugees.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Minister of Social Affairs Wael Abu Faour:
"The Ministry of Social Affairs does the greatest part of the effort because the Supreme Commission for Relief has neither employees nor centers. The commission has only the fund and the security, but the main effort is done by the Ministry of Social Affairs. All we requested is to enhance the social affairs centers at the areas of Akkar and the northern bordering areas with some capabilities for both the employees and the centers, especially that some centers has recently been subjected to damages and attacks."

On the other hand, Lebanon's charitable institutions, particularly the Zakat (Charity) House which initiated a project for the relief of Syrian refugees, compete with time to improve the deteriorating conditions of the Syrian displaced families in Lebanon.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Employee at the Syrian Refugees Relief Project, Lebanon Zakat House:
"Today, with the instructions of the Zakat House Chairman, we provide a number of material aids to the refugee brothers and sisters who are registered with us. They exceed 700 families."

The Syrians fleeing from the turmoil in their country through their borders with Lebanon is gradually increasing since the uprising started mid-March 2011.

There are about 6,000 Syrian refugees at Al-Biqaa area eastern Lebanon, 1,000 in Beirut and 8,500 at the northern area.

Cairo, Egypt | April 4, 2012

Islamist thinker Mohamed Salim Al-Awwa officially registered to run for president on Wednesday, April 4, at the headquarters of the Supreme Judicial Commission for Presidential Elections after he submitted candidacy papers with the endorsements of thirty parliament members.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Islamist thinker Mohamed Salim Al-Awwa:
"Today, I submitted my presidential candidacy papers for 2012, hoping that Allah will guide the honorable Egyptian people to elect a president who can lead the country out of the dark tunnel where it lived over the past thirty years to the space of renaissance, freedom, development and prosperity, Allah willing."

As for the Muslim Brotherhood nomination of a presidential candidate contrary to their 2011 promise, Al-Awwa, who is known to be an MB supporter, said they had the right to like any other groups of political parties.

Some see that the Muslim Brotherhood has fielded a presidential candidate to scatter votes among Islamists versus strong Salafi independent candidate Hazem Salah Abu Ismail, who is facing a campaign against his legitimacy as a presidential candidate due to his mother's alleged American citizenship.

Al-Awwa told reporters that the breaking of Islamist votes is not in favor of Islamist presidential candidates.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Islamist thinker Mohamed Salim Al-Awwa:
"The breaking of Islamist votes is not in favor of Islamist presidential candidates. In whose favor will it be in the end? This will be shown after the Egyptians vote for the president they see suitable. We cannot say it is in favor of the former regime figures or others."

Al-Awwa denied allegations that his father holds Syrian citizenship, stressing that both his parents hold only Egyptian nationalities and passports.

He refused to talk about his presidential program, illustrating that it was illegal to announce it unless the commission announced the official presidential candidates.

According to Egypt’s election law, candidates are required to get the support of 30 parliamentarians, collect signatures from 30,000 citizens or have the official support of a political party that holds at least one seat in the parliament in order to officially run for president.

Cairo, Egypt | April 4, 2012

Interim leader of Egypt's Coptic Orthodox Church Bishop Bakhomious, who temporarily replaced late Pope Shenouda, met with Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Shiekh Ahmed al-Tayyib on Wednesday, April 4, at Al-Azhar headquarters in Cairo, where they expressed their rejection of the constitution-writing panel tasked with drafting Egypt’s new constitution which is dominated by Islamists, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood.

They stressed that the current panel doesn’t offer fair representation of all Egyptians, particularly the minorities.

Bakhomious said that the democracy doesn’t mean the dictatorship of the majority.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Bishop Bakhomious, Coptic Orthodox Church interim leader:
"Democracy is not the dictatorship of the majority. The governing of the people, which is democracy, means involving all categories of society including the very small minorities."

For his part, Dr. Mahmoud Azab, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar's adviser on dialogue showed complete agreement with Bishop Bakhomious and warned that if the constitution committee did not represent all Egyptians including minorities, the nation's unity would be "in danger".

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Mahmoud Azab, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar's adviser on dialogue:
"The Egyptian people must agree politically to the country's common good. Political agreement, like Bishop Bakhomious said, doesn’t mean the dictatorship of the majority but it means that the majority run the affairs while the minorities have their weight, including all forms of intellectual, religious and sectarian minorities. This is a matter of agreement between us and Egypt's Church and between average civilian Muslims and the Christians. Otherwise, the nation's ship is in danger."

Bishop Bakhomious denied that there was a deal between Al-Azhar and the Church to withdraw from the panel.

The Coptic Orthodox Church in Egypt announced its withdrawal from the panel few days after the withdrawal of Al-Azhar, the highest religious authority in the Sunni Muslim world, claiming the panel is illegitimate.

Egyptian Court is scheduled to rule on the validity of the controversial constitution-writing panel on April 10.

Egypt's Aboul-Fotouh Presents His Pre...

Cairo, Egypt | April 3, 2012

Presidential candidate Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh launched his presidential program at al-Azhar Park in Cairo in a big ceremonial event amid the presence of large number of his supporters and famous actors and other figures on Monday evening, April 2.

Aboul-Fotouh addressed the attendees promising he would work on making Egypt one of the top 20 strongest countries in the world and one of the richest within 10 years.

He noted that he would restore security to the Egyptian street in 100 days, and that he would focus on the stability of Sudan and Palestine as well the unity of Libya and Syria as they are part of Egypt’s national security. He stressed the importance of supporting the Egyptian army to be the strongest in the region.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Presidential Candidate Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh:
"I am working on realizing this dream, providing the suitable means to make it a reality, carrying out the projects that contribute to its achievement, relying on the principles of the Islamic Shariah (Law) in which we believe. We understand that each issue that exceeds justice to injustice, mercy to its opposite, common good to corruption and wisdom to chaos is not from the Law of Allah at all."

The slogan of Aboul-Fotouh's presidential campaign is “Egypt, the Dignity”.

Aboul-Fotouh reassured that if elected, he would cancel military trials for civilians and would order the retrial of those who had military trials in the past before civilian courts.

He added that he would do his best to get back the rights of the revolution martyrs.

Aboul-Fotouh talked about some of his development plans, including the development of Upper Egypt and the proper use of the Western Desert.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Presidential Candidate Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh:
"Although Upper Egypt is rich and can even be enriched only by connecting the valley with the Red Sea, by making best use of the desert outskirts of the Upper Egyptian cities, by making infrastructure in vast areas of the Western Desert and connect them to Upper Egypt and grant them to the poor youth who drown in damaged boats while escaping the country via the Mediterranean Sea. Each of them should be granted five or ten feddans of land."

Aboul-Fotouh's moderate views on Islam make him popular among the liberal-Islamist segments of the middle class and young Brotherhood members. His views also on Coptic and women's rights appeal to a large number of liberals.

Many of his supporters believe that he can bridge the gap between the seculars and Islamists in Egypt.

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Hamdi Kandil, political activist:
"This is the chance of revolutionaries. I am certain that Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh is ahead of us all towards this honorable national effort."

SOUNDBITE 4 (Arabic) – Kamal al-Hilbawi, former Muslim Brotherhood spokesman:
"He (Aboul-Fotouh) believes in the way of democracy side by side with the way of revolution to achieve development for the Egyptian, Arab and Islamic nation. We are with you Aboul-Fotouh! Go ahead! Allah's peace and blessings be with you!"

The Muslim Brotherhood group dismissed Aboul-Fotouh after two decades of being a leading member as he decided to run for president after the group announced back then that it wouldn’t nominate or support any one of its members to run for the post. The group has recently nominated one though!

Cairo, Egypt | April 3, 2012

Dozens of Egyptian journalists and members of “Journalists for Constitution” movement gathered outside the Journalists Syndicate headquarters in Cairo on Tuesday, April 3, protesting against the constitution-Writing panel tasked with drafting Egypt’s new constitution, demanding the Syndicate Council to withdraw from the panel due to its alleged illegitimacy for being formed by the Islamist-dominated parliament.
Protestors raised signs and shouted statements against the panel and the Muslim Brotherhood that dominate it, urging their syndicate to boycott it.
However, some other journalists see that withdrawal from the panel is not a solution and that they should have representatives in the panel to advocate the freedom of journalism.
The protesting journalists demanded the chairman of their syndicate to announce withdrawal from the controversial panel.
Protestors shouted statements, calling for the freedom of expression and the freedom of the press. They said they would not allow the MB to have control over the freedom of the press in Egypt.
It is not only the journalists who rejected the panel but many secularists as well as leftist and liberal parties pulled out from the panel.
Egypt’s Supreme Constitution Court also announced withdrawal of its representative from the panel, raising more doubt over its legitimacy.
The court is expected to rule in the lawsuit over the legitimacy of the panel on April 10.

Two anti-Zionist Jewish rabbis visited the Lebanese southern city of Sidon on Monday, April 2, and met with former parliamentarian Usama Saad, stressing that they are "Jews, not Zionist" and that they have come with a message of peace and human rights.

The two rabbis are American members of Neturei Karta, a group of anti-Zionist Jews who do not believe in the state of Israel, wore badges on their chests with a Palestinian flag under which is a small Israeli flag crossed out with "X" sign.

SOUNDBITE 1 (English) - Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss:
"With help of the Almighty I pray that He bestow upon me His Wisdom that I maybe worthy of conveying His Truth to sanctify His Name and bring peace to the world. We have come here to have the privilege and honor of meeting with Dr. Usama Saad. First of all, the history is a rich history of people standing up for what people call human rights and godliness. We could say the godly rights, the requirement of God."

The people of the Lebanese southern city of Sidon were surprised to see two rabbis touring their city and visiting Jewish sites in the city's old alley named "Gaza Alley" which used to be called "the Jews Alley".

They also visited an impoverished house of a Palestinian refugee family in Sidon, wishing for them peace and safe return to their land.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas laid the founding stone for the new headquarters of the Palestinian embassy in New Cairo on Monday, April 2, in the presence of senior Egyptian and Palestinian officials.
Abbas said that the embassy would be as the Palestinian home in Egypt as it will include the home of the Palestinian ambassador, the home of the clerks of the embassy and the culture center which would be built under the supervision of Egypt’s Culture Ministry.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas:
"Paletine for Egypt is its strategic depth. Hence, this relation is based on love between us and our brothers in Egypt. We express this today by laying the founding stone for a Palestinian home, not only an embassy, because it will include the embassy, the ambassador's house, the employees' housing, a cultural center and others."

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Palestinian Ambassador to Egypt Barakt al-Farra:
"Today, our President lays the founding stone for our embassy on the land of Egypt. Soon, Egypt will lay the founding stone for its embassy on the liberated land of Palestine."

Abbas praised the Palestinian-Egyptian relations and stressed the joint history between the two peoples, especially the Egyptian efforts and struggle to support the Palestinian case.
Egyptian officials, including Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr and Culture Minister Shaker Abdel-Hamid stressed the deep-rooted relations between Egypt and Palestine and the historical connection between the two peoples.
SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) - Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammed Kamel Amr:
"This is a new brick for a longtime history of our relation and our mixed blood on the land of the most honorable fights. Allah willing, this will be the embassy of the state of Palestine that will be established on the rest of the occupied lands, with the honorable Quds (Jerusalem) as its capital city."

SOUNDBITE 4 (Arabic) - Egyptian Culture Minister Shaker Abdel-Hameed:
"We will do our best to establish a Palestinian cultural center that suits the status of Palestine and its embassy in Egypt. This is just a symbolic expression of our love, cordiality and permanent appreciation of Palestine. Palestinians are not just brothers for us and Palestine is not only Egypt's strategic depth, but it is part of Egypt's history, not only the past history but also the present and the future too."

Abbas, who arrived in Cairo Sunday on three-day official visit to Egypt, met with head of Egypt’s ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, where they discussed endeavors underway to end the inter-Palestinian division, in addition to the Middle East peace process and the bilateral relations between the two sides.

Cairo, Egypt | April 1, 2012

Cairo Criminal Court adjourned on Sunday, April 1, the trial of iron tycoon and leader of the dismantled ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) Ahmed Ezz for money laundering of EGP 6 billion and 429 million (about USD 1.065 billion) to May 6.
[1 USD = 6.03800 EGP]

The delay was due to the absence of Ezz's lawyer Farid al-Deeb, who is also the lawyer of ousted president Hosni Mubarak, as he reportedly suffered angina and travelled to France for treatment.
Unprecedentedly, power went out and the judge ordered Ezz to come out of the dock to be seen. Some allege the power was deliberately cut by the security men to prevent photographers and cameramen from shooting.

In previous trials, the prosecution said Ezz profiteered from his position as CEO of Al-Dikhila steel factory, in which the state is a main shareholder, from 2001 to 2011.

In September 2011, Ezz was sent to ten years in prison for financial corruption.

Cairo, Egypt | March 31 & April 1, 2012

The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s largest and best organized group, decided to field a presidential candidate, the group's secretary-general announced in a press conference held Saturday evening, March 31, in Cairo.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Mahmoud Hussein, Muslim Brotherhood Secretary-General:
"The group's General Shura Council during its emergency session today, Saturday, March 31, 2012, decided to field a presidential candidate. The Council assigns the General Guidance office in coordination with the executive office of the Freedom and Justice Party to take and follow up the necessary procedures." The decision is seen as controversial and questionable, because the group announced late April last year in a similar conference at the same place by the same man, after the ousting of former regime, that it would not nominate a member to run for president.
SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Mahmoud Hussein, Muslim Brotherhood Secretary-General:
“The group reaffirms that it will not field a candidate for the presidency nor supports any of its members who will run for the presidency in violation of the (Guidance) Bureau.” Although the Muslim Brotherhood is popular in Egypt with a lot of supporters, many see that the decision negatively affects the group's credibility and good name.
On the other hand, the group dismissed Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh, a renowned member, and regarded him as dissident when he decided to run for president. However, the group now nominates Deputy General Guide Eng. Khairat el-Shater as a strong candidate for the presidential race.
SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Egyptian citizen:
"The problem is that the Muslim Brotherhood speaks as an Islamic current. It has previously announced that it wouldn’t nominate a presidential candidate. Now, when they fielded a candidate, it caused the Egyptian society to mistrust them. They are supposed to be honest. They cannot go back on their word so explicitly." SOUNDBITE 4 (Arabic) – Egyptian citizen:
"Khairat el-Shater is an Egyptian citizen and he has the right to run for president. However, to be the candidate of the Freedom and Justice Party or the Muslim Brotherhood contradicts what they have previously announced. They disowned Dr. Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh because he decided to run for president and they announced they wouldn’t field a candidate. This is contradiction in their former and recent statements." El-Shater resigned from his post as the Muslim Brotherhood deputy chairman upon the decision of running for president.
SOUNDBITE 5 (Arabic) – Abdel Moneim Abdel Maqsoud, Muslim Brotherhood attorney:
"Eng. Khairat el-Shater is now a presidential candidate, a post that will be elected by all the people. He is very keen not to belong to any political faction or any organized group with a political ideology. He doesn’t deny the Muslim Brotherhood, but since he announced to run for this post he saw that it was better to resign."
Mohamed Khairat el-Shater, 62, is married with ten children and ten grandchildren. He is a successful engineer and businessman, yet he was jailed several times during the rime of Mubarak over charges against the Muslim Brotherhood. He was released in March 2011 after he was sentenced to seven years in prison.

Hundreds of Ultras Ahlawy members, Al-Ahly soccer team’s fan club, continued a sit-in for the seventh day on Friday, March 30, in front of the Egyptian parliament, demand swift trials for those involved in the Port Said football massacre and a suspension of sports activities in the country pending retribution for the martyrs.

Protestors are calling for the fair rights of the victims and punishment for those responsible of the violence took place, killing at least 75 and wounded hundreds. Protestors set up tents outside the parliament area, stressing that their sit-in will continue until they get back the rights of the soccer riots victims.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Egyptian citizen:
"Their demands are legitimate. These demands are for the rights of all Egypt's martyrs since the revolution erupted against the deposed Hosni Mubarak".

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Egyptian citizen:
"I'm not going to leave the set-in and go back to my home until we get back the rights of the martyrs". Ultras Ahlawy protestors demanded harsher sanctions against Port Said's Al-Masry team denouncing the penalties issued by the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) against Port Said's Al-Masry team. Protestors see that the sanctions imposed on Al-Masry aren't enough to retrieve the rights of the martyrs and there is no justification for the EFA's decision to impose penalties on our team.

Protestors said that they were waiting to see the reaction of those in power concerning the rights of the victims of the recent soccer riots. Protestors see that officials ignored the rights of the victims.

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) - Egyptian citizen:
"We see that our blood is very cheap for the officials but for us our blood is very expensive. We will continue whatever for a year or two or three. The families of the martyrs don't want such trivial compensations they talk about. Those who died are very expensive and not cheap as they see".

The EFA decided to freeze the sports activities of Al-Masry for two seasons and to close the Port Said stadium for three seasons, and handed down several penalties on Al-Ahly and its audience.

Hezbollah's Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah urged on a televised speech on Friday, March 30, Lebanese political forces which bet on the topple of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad's regime to reconsider their calculations as the Syrian regime won't fall.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah:
"Betting on military intervention to topple the regime is a losing bet and has large burdens. It will lead to more bloodshed, more victims and more human and material losses". Nasrallah also warned against arming the opposition, noting that only three or four countries support such an option. He added that only the political solution could resolve the crisis in Syria.
SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah:
"There is only one solution which is the political solution through dialogue and reform. There is no other way out of it".

During his speech in the occasion of the inauguration of As-Sayyeda Zaynab Hall, Nasrallah also addressed the developments at Bahrain, saying that there is a real tragedy. The opposition has not resorted to violence and it is being killed on a daily basis by the security forces and that civilized countries do not resort to such means.

Hundreds of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, shared by some Lebanese supporters, commemorated the Earth Day on Friday, March 30, by marching to the Southern Lebanese areas bordering Israel in what is referred to as the Global March to Jerusalem (GMJ), a symbolic march to protest the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories and its attempts of ethnic cleansing and Judaization of the holy city.
Palestinian flags side by side with Lebanese ones could be seen everywhere at the Lebanese side of the southern borders with Israel, with a large banner in the background reading, “All world peoples want to liberate Al-Quds (Jerusalem) – Global March to Jerusalem - Lebanon”.
Hundreds of Palestinian refugees of all ages commemorated the day as a loud cry to the whole world to pay attention to their cause, while Israeli armored vehicles went back and forth to secure the borders.
The Lebanese army limited the march to a further point from the Israeli borders to avoid clashes between Palestinian refugees and Israeli border troops like the ones that took place last year and resulted in Palestinian victims.
A number of Arab and world capital cities shared the Palestinians their global march to express solidarity with them and support for their cause.

Cairo, Egypt | March 29, 2012

Egyptian politician Ayman Nour, Mubarak's opponent in 2005 elections, announced on Thursday, March 29, running for presidential elections and that he would officially present his candidacy papers to the Presidential Elections Commission next Friday.

Nour, who heads Al-Ghad Party that changed its name to Ghad al-Thawra Party after the revolution, had been banned from political life since he was imprisoned on fraud charges to form party in 2005.

Egyptian law bans any candidates with a criminal record from running for president. However, the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Force (SCAF) gave him an official pardon on Wednesday, March 28, to return to the political field.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Politician, lawyer and presidential hopeful Ayman Nour:
"The decision can be considered among those produced by January 25 Revolution. It was normal after the revolution that the falsifications and shameful and oppressive conditions imposed by the former regime and its leadership would change."

Nour expressed gratefulness for the SCAF who made the decision and for all those parliamentarians and presidential candidates who demanded his return for the political life.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Politician, lawyer and presidential hopeful Ayman Nour:
"A large number of parliamentarians, about 150 MPs, submitted a request of pardon, in addition to some presidential candidates including Hazem Salah Abou Ismail, Hamdinne Sabbahi, Mansour Hassan who charis the advisory council, Amr Moussa and Bothaina Kamel."

Nour, 48, considered the decision as late, because it is required for any one run for president to get either 30,000 signatures of supporters from fifteen different governorates, the signatures of 30 parliamentarians or to be registered as a party candidate before April 8, which is the deadline for candidacy registration.

Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati said on Thursday, March 29, during the second regional conference of the Lebanese Army Research and Strategies Studies Center, that Lebanon would not change its disassociation and self-distance policy on the developments in Syria.
He stressed that Lebanon's positions has been clear from the very beginning, respecting the peoples' aspirations for freedom and democracy, without interfering in their domestic affairs.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Lebanese PM Najib Mikati:
“Lebanon’s position from what is happening was clear and firm in respecting people’s aspirations for freedom and for regimes that will realize their demands without interfering in their domestic affairs, because we wish for them stability and prosperity as we wish for our country. No one will succeed in luring us into changing our disassociation policy be it internally or externally, as well as the pressures don’t affect us that could be practiced upon us politically, economically and security whether internally or externally." Mikati expressed his wish that Syria would overcome the ongoing crisis and restore its role as a strong Arab nation, particularly in the face of "the Israeli enemy" and its aggressions against the Palestinian people.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Lebanese PM Najib Mikati: "Our policies set a framework for us in dealing with the situation in Syria and made us decide to distance ourselves from what's going on in Syria, for which we wish all the best and stability and hope it overcomes its crisis with the unity of its people and land until it restores its role among the Arab countries, especially in the face of the Israeli enemy, which still occupies a dear Arab land, displaces the dear Palestinian people and practices all kinds of torture, murder and displacement against them."

Mikati said he was confident that the Arab region, which had witnessed and overcome greater challenges throughout history, would be able to adapt to the new reality and interact with the new changes and developments.

Cairo, Egypt | March 29, 2012

Muslim Brotherhood dissident member and Presidential hopeful Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh held a press conference on Thursday, March 29, outside the headquarters of the Supreme Commission for Presidential Elections after he officially submitted his candidacy papers with about 40,000 signatures of supporters who gave him power-of-attorney to run for the post.

The motto of Aboul-Fotouh's presidential campaign is “Egypt, the Dignity”.
Aboul-Fotouh, who was dismissed from the Muslim Brotherhood for his announcement of running for president, said that Egypt would never be ruled by a pharaoh again, referring to former president Hosni Mubarak's longtime rule.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Presidential Candidate Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh:
"We do not say mere theoretical words. Our statements are based on experts and specialists, because Egypt will not be governed by a president who claims understanding of everything anymore. The role of Egypt's coming president will be mainly the preservation of national independency and the respect of specialists and experts in their fields, protecting them and pushing them for the service of this nation."

Aboul-Fotouh said that he would do his best to make Egypt a strong and free country, raise the people's standard of living and get the rights of revolution martyrs.

He warned against electoral fraud and vote buying in the upcoming presidential elections, scheduled for May 23 and 24, to ensure the new president reflects the free will of the people after January 25 Revolution.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Presidential Candidate Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh:
"Election of a new president is a national project that represents a crossroads for Egypt. The enemies of this revolution want to tamper with this project and trade with political money to buy the will of Egyptians. However, the dignity of Egyptians rejects selling their will for money."

Aboul-Fotouh, noted that his presidential program depends mainly on two parts which are education and medical care as it is the right of all Egyptians to enjoy proper education and healthcare, promising to work hard, if elected, to resolve the issue of unemployment from 15% to 6%.

He also touched on the security issue, saying that it is his main priorities to reform the Interior Ministry and to restore security.

Aboul-Fotouh, 61, a former Muslim Brotherhood Guidance Bureau member, was recently expelled from the Islamist group because of running for presidential elections as the group has committed to not fielding a candidate for the presidency and has forbidden its members from running independently.

Cairo, Egypt | March 28, 2012

Egypt's Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim and Petroleum Minister Abdullah Ghorab held a joint press conference on Wednesday, March 28, clarifying the situation regarding the country's security conditions and the ongoing fuel crisis.
Egyptian Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim said that he was ready to clear Tahrir Square if the parliament asked him to and if the political forces approved that those remaining at the Square were not revolutionaries but only thugs.
He added that the crime rate has greatly decreased to the point that he didn’t receive any reports of car robberies or kidnappings nationwide for about three or four days.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim:
"There is retreat in the accidents horrifying the citizens, such as car robbery, kidnapping and ordinary murders. We made a study comparing December to January, January to February and February to March. Why do we do that? It is to know if we're going on the right direction and if the procedures of the work plan are going well. I found out that, praise be to Allah, the plan is going well and there's crime retreat."

Ibrahim noted that within fifteen days only, the ministry confiscated 326 weapons, apprehended 178 escaped prisoners, discovered 45 gangs and foiled the smuggling of two million tons of fuel, stressing that the police succeeded to restore security at the Egyptian streets by more than 60%.
For his part, Oil Minister Abdullah Ghorab said that the country provides the market with 38,000 tons of gasoline and diesel every day, admitting that the issue lies in improper distribution.
SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Oil Minister Abdullah Ghorab:
"I pump 38,000 tons of fuel to the market every day. This is published by the Petroleum Authority on daily basis, including what's local and what's imported, mentioning the name of the ship. I read this statement in the newspapers and online. So, this number is real and disputable. I said that the issue has to do with distribution. We admit that there's shortcoming in distribution that we want to discuss further."

Ghorab stressed that illegal export of subsidized gasoline as solvents was part of the issue, besides the too old petroleum refineries requiring reparation and development.
He added that Egypt produces about 700,000 barrels of oil per day, which he described as very good and greater than the production of previous years.

Sudan's National Assembly held an emergency hearing session on Wednesday, March 28, on the relations with South Sudan in light of the recent border conflict, particularly at the area of Heglig.
Interior Minister Ibrahim Mahmoud Hamed reaffirmed that Sudan was keen on maintaining good relations with South Sudan due to their shared history and more than 2,000-kilometer borders, adding that Sudan would not be silent to the threats to its security.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Sudanese Interior Minister Ibrahim Mahmoud Hamed:
"There can't be good neighboring and relations without security between the two countries. We hope that South Sudan return to their right mind because this is for their own good. Now there is famine in the South. There is a civil war in the South. They shut off their oil resources. I believe they have no way out except by having good relations with the North."

Sudanese officials expressed condemn of the recent aggressions of South Sudan army at the borders and their alleged support of the rebels in Southern Kordofan and the Blue Nile.
Sudanese Deputy Parliament Speaker Mohamed Hassan al-Amin said there would be no peace with South Sudan unless the latter halted aggression.
SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Sudanese Deputy Parliament Speaker Mohamed Hassan al-Amin:
"We consider stopping aggressions a basic thing. We cannot accept the support of the government of South Sudan for the rebels in Southern Kordofan and the Blue Nile. We don’t accept the presence of South Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) troops in the lands of Sudan. We consider this as daring interference in the Sudanese affairs. Therefore, there will not be permanent peace unless these acts are stopped."

Clashes broke out Monday between the armed forces of Sudan and South Sudan in disputed border regions, raising doubts about the anticipated meeting between the leaders of the two countries, Omar Hassan al-Bashir and Salva Kiir, scheduled for April 3.

Cairo, Egypt | March 28, 2012

The constitution panel held its first session on Wednesday, March 28, despite the withdrawal of more than twenty of its liberal and secular members accusing Islamists of dominating the panel tasked with drafting Egypt’s new constitution.

Members of the controversial panel elected parliament speaker and Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Saad al-Kattani as chairman of the constitutional panel.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Parliament speaker and panel chairman Mohamed Saad al-Katatni:
"I believe that this critical and historical stage which Egypt is going through is not about the Muslim Brotherhood, the SCAF, the government or anything. They all are supposed to be keen that this transitional stage ends by general agreement in favor of Egypt."

Al-Kattani tried to assuage concerns about the constitution-drafting process, told members of the panel that writing the constitution requires wisdom and political responsibility, away from any partisan gains.

He stressed that there must be a consensus among all national forces over the visions of Egypt’s future with regard to the new constitution.

Members of the constitution panel suggested holding discussions with those parliamentarians who withdrew from the panel to deal with their concerns, clarifying that there are 40 elected substitute members from whom a replacement can be taken when necessary.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Parliament and panel member Salah Abdel Mawgoud, MB's Freedom and Justice Party:
"I refer to them until now as the absent members not the withdrawing members. They haven’t officially withdrawn so they are considered absent. There will be communication and discussions with those absent members to hear their views. If they insist on absence and officially withdraw, they will be replaced by other members elected as substitutes."
SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Parliament and panel member Sobhy Saleh, MB's Freedom and Justice Party:
"I believe that we're ahead of a great work and that it's a very important step. Do not forget that this is the completion of the state establishment. The constitution committee will draft the constitution that will be presented for public referendum. Then, we'll start post-revolution Egypt with all its institutions, its constitution and its new president and we'll take our path to establish ourselves among the world countries."

Meanwhile, a protest was held outside the parliament against the legitimacy of the newly elected panel.

Cairo, Egypt | March 27, 2012

Cairo Administrative Court adjourned on Tuesday, March 27, the verdict on the case against the legitimacy of the newly elected 100-member constitution-writing panel to April 10, after lawsuits were filed by several legal experts, political activists and public figures.

The claimants argue that domination of Islamists of the constituent panel that will draft Egypt’s new constitution will result in a religious state rather than a civil one, rejecting the criteria on which the panel formation was based.

The session was closed to the media. Meanwhile, hundreds of liberal and secularist protestors gathered outside the court raising signs and shouting statements against Islamists' representation by 50 parliamentarians in the constitution-writing committee.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Kahled Ali, presidential candidate:
"Today, we're going to draft a constitution identifying all the country's authorities including the executive authority. Is it permissible that the executive authority get 50 members inside the committee that will specify its authorities? Who would guarantee that this authority would not overpower all other authorities?"

The protesters outside the court, including liberal, secular, leftist activists and lawyers, called for a constitution panel of non-parliamentarians that represents all factions of society.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Protestor (man):
"My message and the message of everyone keen on the best interest of this country to the Egyptian people is that they should not let anyone control them. The former ruling National Democratic Party showed us 30 years of oppression and corruption. The Islamic current is following the same way just like a train. We hope that Egyptians do not give up their votes to anyone. Those whom they elected in the parliament unfortunately left their duties, which are legislation and supervision, and now they want to write the constitution to dominate and control the country."

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Protestor (woman):
"I am here today to say that the constitution of Egypt should only express the Egyptian revolution. It is inappropriate that a certain faction will dominate writing and tailoring the constitution to suit their own size."

Islamists have ascended the political centre stage in Egypt since the popular uprising toppled longtime president Hosni Mubarak last year, dominating the upper and lower houses of parliament.

The first meeting of the newly formed panel will be held on Wednesday, March 28, at the Parliament headquarters in Cairo.

Sudanese army official spokesman, Colonel Al-Sawarmi Khaled Saad, told reporters on Tuesday, March 27, that the Sudanese Armed Forces are in full control of the disputable area of Heglig, condemning what he described as "wrongful aggression" of the Southern Sudanese troops at the borders.
Saad told reporters at the headquarters of Sudan's Ministry of Defense in Khartoum that the area is completely free from any troops of the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) or the rebels contrary to what some media said.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Sudan's Armed Forces Official Spokesman, Colonel Al-Sawarmi Khaled Saad:
"We believe it is a wrongful aggression within our borders and inside our lands in the area of Heglig, which is not a disputable area. In terms of demarcation and it not controversial that it follows the 1956 northern borders. We confirm that the Armed Forces completely control this area, Heglig, and that there are not any troops there who belong to Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) or rebels in this area. The Armed Forces are in full control of the area contrary to what some media said that it's controlled by South Sudan, which is baseless and incorrect. This area is 100% northern and its belonging to Sudan has never been disputed."

The official statement comes a day after clashes broke out between the armed forces of Sudan and South Sudan in disputed border regions, although Sudan’s President Omar Hassan al-Bashir is due to meet his southern counterpart Salva Kiir on April 3 in the southern capital Juba in an attempt to resolve the disputes between the two countries.

Cairo, Egypt | March 27, 2012

Egyptian liberal, secularist and leftist political parties and figures announced on Tuesday, March 27, their withdrawal from the constitution panel that will draft Egypt’s new constitution during a press conference held at the Journalist syndicate, rejecting Islamists' domination of the panel.

The Free Egyptians Party, the largest liberal one, pulled out from the constitution panel, joining several other liberals and secularists who rejected the way of the formation of the panel complaining the panel is dominated by Islamists and doesn’t offer fair representation of all Egyptians.

The participants issued a joint statement formally announcing withdrawal from the panel.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Emad Gad, parliamentarian and researcher at Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies:
"The panel members signing this statement announce withdrawal from its membership as expression of their rejection of the panel formation and of the method through which the opinion of the parliament parties of majority seats was imposed without consultations or attempts to achieve the least agreement."

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Amr Hamzawi, liberal parliamentarian, founding member of Egypt Freedom party:
"I don’t want to be a member of a constituent committee where civil society organizations are not really represented. I don’t want to be a member of a constituent committee free from human rights advocates. I don’t want to be a member of a constituent committee where women representation is 6%. I don’t want to be a member of a constituent committee where youth representation is very limited, which is less than 6% or 5%."

Liberals see that such a high proportion of lawmakers gave Islamists, who already control nearly most of the parliament seats, too much control of drafting the constitution, stressing that the constitution must represent all the Egyptians and not only a majority group of people.

They also see that having 50 members of the 100-member panel from outside parliament is not a guarantee that they are not Islamists, stressing that Islamists' domination of the panel endangers freedoms and the rights of women and minorities.

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Mohamed Nour Farahat, liberal parliamentarian, law professor and constitutional expert:
"There are three things in real danger. The first is the civil nature of Egypt. The second is the status of women and minorities in Egypt's coming constitution. The third is the status of general rights and freedoms in the new constitution.

Some of the participants said that the constitution-writing panel is illegitimate as they believe that the current parliament is illegitimate in the first place.

SOUNDBITE 4 (Arabic) – Mamdouh Ramzy, Assistant Chairman of Reform Party:
"We finally resort to the law, which will have the last say about this constituent committee and about the parliament also, because this parliament is illegitimate and so the constituent committee was formed by an illegitimate parliament."

Among the members of the constitutional panel who declared withdrawal are liberal lawmaker and researcher Amr Hamzawi, political science professor and Social Democratic Party leader Mona Makram Ebeid, head of Lawyers’ Syndicate Sameh Ashour and activist Ahmed Harara.
