Disturbing News from Alexandria, Egypt
This is a story that tells you what kind of culture was adopted by Egyptians under the fascism of the totalitarian regimes like those of Egypt's military coup d’etats of July 23 1952.
It is a complete transformation to the principles and ethics that our history before 1952 taught us. I cannot believe that this is happening in Egypt that once hosted Damascus Jews after the 1844 massacre, Lebanon’s Christians after the 1860 massacres, thousands of Armenian orphans in 1915, the Greek royal family during world war II, Albanian Royal family after the 1950 coup d’etates, Al-Habib Bourqiba, Russian and Chinese princesses as well as Algerian and most African strugglers. Egypt was also sought by Prince Talal Bin Abdel Aziz and the Iranian and Libyan Royal families as a safe haven, where they all lived in safety. Let’s not forget Egyptian Jews who had to flee Egypt in a savage way under the brutal ruling of late President Gamal Abdel Nasser who gave orders to get them out of Egypt with their bedtime clothes confiscating all their properties.
Not to mention that the Mediterranean city of Alexandria before 1952 was a true European hub for all immigrating Europeans from Greece, Armenia, Ukraine, Italy…etc and nothing was mentioned about their faiths. Now it is a hub for extremists. How sad?
Now I am asking myself, why am I surprised? This is how the fascist era of the July Revolution has started; stabbing a nun now in 2005 is a normal development!
This also can tell you the amount of destruction that my Egypt is suffering under military ruling since 1952.
Time to end this era and start anew to bring back the Egypt we are all proud of. Photo by AP.
