"Freedom for Egyptians" Live with BBC tonight on Egypt's Local Elections' Postponment

In less than two hours from now, I ll be live again with BBC's Up All Night Program to talk about Egypt's Government's decision to postpone Local Council/Municipality's elections for two years that was due April this year. The US criticized the Egyptian Government today.

The Muslim Brotherhood are crying foul game.

To learn about it you can tune in tonight at 8:15 PM EST time and 3:15 AM Cairo Local Time, I will be commenting on that topic.

The program is "Up All Night", a four hour live show "every night of the year". You can listen to me LIVE on the program! I am extremely excited about it, so please listen.Again, internet users can hear the program by logging on http://www.bbc.co.uk/fivelive, and following the links to listen live. The program is broadcast from 0100-0500 GMT (5 hours ahead of Washington, and 3 hours behind Cairo)...

Ok, I am done with the interview, I will write about it tomorrow (Wednesday). Yesterday, I have also started a post on the election postonment. I will post both tomrrow, now I am running late for a Valentine's Day dinner...

The good news, both MP3 files for the two interviews will be available very soon..

Yay, I found you this time! You have a good voice - I expected a British accent, but you sound American :)

For anybody else who wants to find the right interview, it's the Wednesday one from this link:


FFE is about 15 minutes into it. If you select the "listen using stand alone real player" option you can zip forward to the 15 minute mark and you'll be there :)

Free bonus, you can hear FFE's first name when they introduce her :D

Hey FFE - Can't wait to hear what you gotta say. At work now but will tune in when I get the chance.

I was just reading about the move Muburak pulled about delaying the elections.

No doubt that this move is a completely UNDEMOCRATIC thing to do. But you know what? Thank God he did it. I think you may disagree with me on this but I am all for ANYTHING, I repeat, ANYTHING that will impede the progress of the Muslim Brotherhood's political aspirations. There is no doubt that they are evil and will destroy any prospects of a modern civil society if they ever come to power in Egypt...just like what's happening in poor Palestine.

If anyone is interested in uncovering the veil on the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt (the world's FIRST fundementalist organization) then I urge you to check out this article:

Ya know, their campaign slogan was simply, "Islam is the Solution" which gained huge support. But what the hell does that mean when it comes to politics?? It's such a generic blanket statement that excited the masses...but let's see what their real "solution" for Egypt is. Here's a factual, artiulate anaysis of their policies.

Did you think I will have a British accent because I am talking to the BBC?

Thanks for listening. I have to admit I was extremely tired, I am writing a blog on the Local elections in Egypt.

"Did you think I will have a British accent because I am talking to the BBC?"

No, no reason at all... just my imagination :)

Most the Egyptians I've met in the US have an American accent. Mona ElTahaway is the only Egyptian I've ever heard with a British accent.

But you are right, most of English language schools in Cairo including my school adopt the British way of education. I do not know why. That goes without saying unless the school has the name "American....". May be because we were under the British occupation for some time. I had never asked myself why Egypt is going for the British English?

I like both, the American and British, but now I am more bias to the American:)
