WHAT 60M INTERVIEW REVEALS ABOUT OUR MEDIA AND THE EGYPTIAN DICTATOR

The Psychopath of Egypt on 60M

The recent CBS 60 Minutes interview of Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi revealed as much about our media hype as much as the unstable psychological status of Egyptian dictator, this was not the first to feature an Arab dictator on a major American news network. The US media have been prepping Arab dictators for years, from Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, and Nobel peace winner Anwar Sadat, to MBS the Saudi young reformer; humanizing mass murderers like Reagan, Bush (father and son), and Netanyahu is becoming mainstream news. In a nutshell, the media here is not working for the public good as it was intended, instead, America’s interests and money drives the corporate media’s moral compass, adopting government narrative during wars and the corporate pocketbook and ratings during peace.

Dogs don’t chase Village Fools …!!

 

                                                 My Old House in the village as stands NOW

In our village, dogs chased kids and kids chased  Rafut: The village fool , as he was known to everyone, a middle age well built man, a stranger, and outsider, he wasn’t one of the locals, no family, no address and no last name. You never seen him in the fields or at the barber shop, Only showed up in weddings and funerals, for free handout of food, in the street, kids paraded him with insults , showered him with rocks , never retaliated, never complained,,, and that was his only way to survive kids brutality and village ambivalence ! Rafut… , I alway wondered why dogs never chased the village fool!!

Americans Fascination of ancient dead Egyptians !!

American fascination of ancient dead Egyptians

More than 1200 years ago, two ancient Egyptian cities vanished from the face of the earth, due to natural disasters.  It took the French underwater archaeologist Frank Goddio, more that 40 years to discover the two missing ancient cities on the bank of Alexandria Egypt.  however in less than 40 days, president elSisi, the current pharaoh, sold two strategic islands to the Saudis. I went to meet Mr. Goddio at MIA where more than 250 pieces of his discoveries are on display in Egypt’s Sunken Cities exhibit. He was enthused, proud, informative and introspective. I asked him about his fascination of dead Egyptian and Egypt ancient history where Egyptians themselves don’t really care that much or don’t even bazar. Most Egyptians never visited the Pyramids, Egyptians are consumed by their modern Pharaohs more the ones lived thousands of years ago.
