And this is Why Martyrs and wounded are first !!

Martyr Kotb 
It has to mean something ,seriously when I speak with the wounded and the families and in less than 24 hours and I found out that one of the revolution’s wounded became an official revolution’s martyr after 5 months of treatment in Kasr Al Aini hospital today !!
This new revolution’s martyr is 24 years old Mahmoud Kotb who had been in the French Kasr Al Aini hospital for 5 months , I will repeat it again he died after 5 months.
According to the activists late Kotb was the young man who was hit by that diplomatic white van on January 28th while Al Ahram portal claims that he was killed by the police force on February 28 !! The reporter in Al Ahram portal described the revolution day as the events of February 28th known as "Friday of wrath” !! Excuse my French !! events !! February 28th !!? Does anyone revise this before it goes online !!?
Anyhow Kotb died today after 5 months of being of that diplomatic van stolen from the American embassy on January 28th. Here is the video if you do not remember it.
White diplomatic van hits people
Mahmoud’s funeral was honorable and huge . Not less than 2,000 participated in the funeral of 24 years old Mahmoud that was held at Tahrir square. All people were crying especially when the funeral passed in the same street he was killed at. He was only hit by the car but he was also beaten by CSF soldiers as well.
The hospital did not let the body except after the people started to protest !! oh yes they told Mahmoud’s family that they had two choices : either to give up his legal rights as a victim or he would undergo an autopsy !!! After a small protest and the media began to head to the hospital , they released the body. Sheikh Safwat Hegazy washed it while he was crying !!
The funeral turned in to protest itself.

Al Masry Al Youm : The diplomatic van’s victim
For 5 months now we do not know yet who hit 24 years old Kotb despite the security forces can reach out to the one who did it very easily. I heard two stories , one says that Habib El Adly was in the van while the other says that El-Shaer was in the van. Both men are criminals already.
We will not forget nor forgive our rights , our martyrs’ rights , insh Allah we will not.

  1. I'm of course foreigner and to me Al Ahram is and oddball, I have been reading it a couple of times. Currently it is aligned as "Uncertain", before it was politically aligned with NDP (See wikipedia and Political alignment). Have they come up any explanation of their current position on politics, or past?

    Money talks and it is worth noting that they are government funded. SCAF or other government institutions may have a great leverage over what or how they write. This is not necessity, they could very well adopt policies something like BBC and announce them clearly, but there is a one big but: They must come clean being puppets of NDP in past. Otherwise critical thinker cannot know when you are supposed to start trusting their news.

    Something else, this sounded a bit ridiculous:

    "I heard two stories , one says that Habib El Adly was in the van while the other says that El-Shaer was in the van. Both men are criminals already."

    As if someone is trying to aggregate all crimes to these few individuals who are already criminals. If we don't know who drove it then we should not assume extremes, but the averages: like police officer or thug.

  2. I find it horrible that such young people have to die and the culprits get away unpunished. What kind of nonsense, that the US Embassy claims "their cars were stolen". That Embassy is probably the most guarded location in Cairo. To steal a car is impossible. To pretend that several cars were stolen is ridiculous! There is a story behind this, may be a tragic one like diplomats who just panicked ...

    "... oh yes they told Mahmoud’s family that they had two choices : either to give up his legal rights as a victim or he would undergo an autopsy..."
    My Dear, I guess it was the other way around: Hospital told the relatives, if you report a crime, an autopsy is required and the body being a piece of evidence has to stay in custody.

  3. Anyone not want to offend, but defined as a martyr who and who does not? Lot using the name "Martyr of the revolution" for personal gain.

  4. Zeinobia, you say only "there were rumors," "say" but where are the facts? If you rely on word of mouth, try to find them proof!
