General Al-sisi, The real Egyptian Hijacker , Commentary

Hassan let my nephew go file

aEgypt hijacker…

“Our flight MS181 is officially hijacked. We’ll publish an official statement now.”, Egypt Air posted this tweet that was the beginning of the most bizarre hijacking incident in aviation history; the twisted love lust hijacking saga of a 59 year-old Egyptian, Seif Eldin Mustafa which captured the world’s attention for six hours. Apparently behind the daring adventure of Mr.  Mustafa was a Cyprus woman, -and five children- … The reports about what actually happened on that flight was sketchy and comical at best.

At first the paranoid Egyptian authorities which usually blame all the world’s illnesses on the Muslim Brotherhood, identified the hijacker as Ibrahim Samaha, describing him as a university professor on his way to a conference at the University of Atlanta. Mr. Samaha’s incensed wife had to contact Egyptian media to assure them that her husband was a passenger on his way to Cairo and “certainly not the hijacker” of the ill-fated plane. The twisted hijacking saga didn’t stop there, as the world is focusing on terrorism; an act of speculation was the usual reflexive reaction.

The Condom Uprising in Egypt!


Notes from America

NOTES FROM AMERICA: THE CONDOM UPRISING IN EGYPT!
February 1st, 2016 Administrator

“You should wear a condom on every conceivable occasion” goes the saying, with one exception, never during the Egyptian National Police Day, a day that was overshadowed five years ago by the January 25th Revolution…..

For the recent Police Day, the hype reached a new hysterical and bizarre level considering all the atrocities and brutalities committed by these same police over the last five years.

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!
