THE KILLING OF JAMAL KHASHOGGI, REACTIONS AND ANALYSIS

 

Everyone knows by now, unless you live in Saudi Arabia, that Washington Post writer and Saudi citizen Jamal Khashoggi was kidnapped, interrogated, and tortured, dismembered inside the Saudi consulate in Turkey in the presence of the Saudi consulate himself.

The Condom Uprising in Egypt!

On the morning of January 25th, two young Egyptians had a different idea of how to commemorate National Police Day. Shady Abu Ziad, a 20-year-old correspondent for a satirical TV show, and his friend Ahmed Malek, a young Egyptian actor, pulled a condom prank on the police officers and spoiled the hyped hysteria of the National Police Day celebration.

Shady and Malek inflated a few condoms–the male protector in Arabic–and sarcastically wrote on them, “From the youth of Egypt to the police on January 25th.” Then, they took them to Tahrir Square, a militarized zone for the day, where only Al-Sisi supporters were allowed in. From the YouTube video, you can see Shady and Malek arrived with smiles bringing their condom “balloons.” Shady knelt down, kissed the ground and then the two walked around distributing the “balloons” out as gifts to some of the police officers positioned there. The gullible police officers seemed amused and pleased with the “balloon” gifts, not knowing they were inflated condoms. Malek and Shady made a video of the prank and posted it on their YouTube channel. Of course, the video went viral on social media and within hours, it had been viewed by almost 2 million people around the world. Continue reading The Condom Uprising in Egypt!
