#Tahrir : The clashes continue and we do not know to where we are heading “Graphic”

Last night the ministry of health has declared officially that 760 were injured and 2 were killed , one from Cairo and one in Alexandria. Now today the ministry of health has declared the injured have reached to 982. We got injured from Alexandria and Suez aside from the Tahrir square’s on going massacre.50 protesters have been detained as rioters. 
Update : The ministry of health says that the injured has reached to 1144 at 2:22 PM
The sit in is back at Tahrir square with not less than 5,000 protesters. Rallies from Cairo university have reached to Tahrir square. The Ultras groups from Zamalek and Ahly clubs are there already since last night. The field hospital is still in need of medical supplies , the sit in needs food and blankets. You can find what the Tahrir sit in needs on this twitter hashtag : #Tahrirneeds
A group of protesters at Tahrir square has issued a statement saying that they will continue in the sit in till we have a regime from the people themselves. Again this is not an official statement from all the protesters at Tahrir square but rather a group of them.
The clashes are still on at Mohamed Mahmoud street where it leads to the ministry of interior HQ. The CSF is still using tear gas grenades and rubber bullets. The protesters are reporting that the tear gas grenades or the new gas grenades got strange effects that made some suspect that it is some sort of nerves gas. It was proved that the tear gas grenades made in the USA was expired from 5 years ago.
They also found this cover for gunshots package which they dedicate to the MOI that deny using the gun shots against protesters.

Here is a live footage shot from short awhile ago there after the break


Live footage from Tahrir square
Yesterday 23 years old Ahmed Mahmoud was shot down by the police forces at Tahrir square. Of course the official reports say that he was shot down after the police forces’ departure
Here is Ahmed Mahmoud with his dad in the morgue !!

In Alex things may escalate as the young man who was shot down by the police force Bahaa El Sonussy turned to be from a big family that it will not leave his right. El Sonussy was shot down in front of the security directorate. Here is a photo showing him moments before he was killed , he was the young man on the right.
Late Sonussy on the right "Facebook"
Here is a video showing him moments after he was shot allegedly by a sniper rifle.The video is unclear though.

It is not only Malek or Abdel Fatah who lost one of their eyes , but as well Dr. Ahmed Harara who is on the verge of losing his second eye.
The one eyed revolution coalition by Abdel Fatah
He lost the first on January 28th and now he is undergoing another eye surgery that may or may not save his other eye. Please pray for him . Harara is a dentist from Maadi by the way.

Based on the tune in the radio or TV SCAF may sacrifice the Essam Sharaf’s cabinet especially with the increasing talk about the national unity government. Potential presidential candidate Mohamed ElBaradei held talks with SCAF members yesterday about national salvation government. There are news that Sheikh Hazem Abu Ismail , the potential presidential candidate will meet with SCAF members. Mohamed Salim El Awa went to Tahrir square trying to convince the protesters to leave and in the end he had to leave just like Mamdouh Hamza. Amr Moussa cut his regional tour and is heading back to Egypt.
Last night the only SCAF member that spoke on TV was Major General El Fangary of SCAF. El Fangry spoke on air on  Al Hayat and ONTV channels and of course he accused some unknown parties of using the injured of the revolution to the end of this talk. Of course I felt in his voice there was no defiance as much as confusion in my point of view. He says SCAF can hand over the power by the end of 2012 in the best situations according to their view.
Speaking about TV , well the Egyptian national TV’s website “” has been hacked today.
The hackers left this message on the hacked page :
This is for the nonsense you broadcast last night on TV. The same failed media policies and hypocrisy. At first you were hypocrites to Mubarak and now to SCAF.All what we want is to transfer a clear image. People are dying and you transfer a romantic scene from the Nile !!

The revolution continues electoral coalition has suspended its campaigns. The revolution Youth coalition has issued a statement with a set of demands that I found logic :
  • Sacking off Essam Sharaf’s cabinet.
  • Forming a national salvation cabinet and handing it the political powers of SCAF.
  • Having the presidential elections in April 2012.
  • Reforming the ministry of interior for real.
The peaceful front for change also issued a statement about what happened with set of demands.
  • Sacking off Essam Sharaf’s cabinet and appointing Hazem El Babelawy as a prime minister and famous law professor Nour El Din Farahat as ministrer of interior !!
  • Ending the military trials and immediate release of the military trials’ detainees above them Alaa Abdel Fatah.
  • Issuing the unions law and dropping farmers’ debts
  • A clear timetable for handing over power with presidential elections by the end of May 2012.
  • Purging the ministry of interior from El Adly’s thugs
  • The supreme council of judiciary investigates the clashes otherwise they will ask the UN to investigate it.

I have doubts about the elections , in fact I feel that violent escalation from the MOI’s side is intended to delay the elections.
I am worried , I will not deny that I am worried aside from all that romantic revolutionary talk , I am worried because I am afraid that we are pawns in some sort of game of interests and powers , I am worried that this kind of irrational thinking from SCAF may prepare us to another coup from inside the army where our odds in a country like Egypt to have another Nasser are high based on the fact that’s a pharaoh's nation. Realistically speaking SCAF has still got an opportunity through concessions yet what I see makes me feel that they do not think in the right way when it comes to politics or even to protect their interests.
My only bet now is on God to keep this nation safe.


  1. Very good reporting as always! Yes, we must fear there is something going on in the back of some minds that is not meant good for Egypt. The demands must be met, or the nation has no chance.

  2. Of course the army is defending their interest. that should be no surprise to anybody. Likewise all those who benefitted the one way or the other from Mubarak is opposing the revolution.

    Sadly there are still Egyptians (thugs) that can be bought and who are fighting the revolution just for a few Pounds.

    Sadly there are religious groups who would sacrifice the values of the revolution for their very own greed for power.

    Why should Essam Sharaf besacked and be replaced by an old man as Beblawi? Essam Sharaf is a good man, but he cannot do anything as lonmg as Tantawi calls the shots. Changung the Cabinet to appease the people was Mubarak's style.

    I think we should support Essam Sharaf to fire Tantawi in order to save our nation.

  3. WW2 did not resolve the US financial crisis, something else was Attempted, but first continue reading,. In the near future the Arab
    world will be divided into two Segments, the US friendly client states such as Iraq the Gulf States or Moderate Islamic Client states
    like Turkey, Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Lebanon and possibly Syria. If either got out of line it would be Classified as Hostile to US interest and join the ranks of the Axis of Evil. The whole Idea is to further Isolate Iran thus keeping China and Russia in check, now that both Russia and China are surrounded by US basis in Europe, The Middle East and the Pacific and there is not much room of movement vis-a-vis their allies like Iran and North Korea as if they did then that will help the US mobilize its industry. After WW2 the US created the imaginary enemy which was the Soviet Union to benefit the US Industrial complex
    firms to launch into an arms race bonanza which bankrupted the US economy by diverted tax dollar to the defense budget. Terrorism was
    Later used to launch the Iraq and Afghanistan wars which sent the US deficit to the stratosphere. Today both the US and Europe are bankrupt just like before and after WW2, the US will do the same today where a strike
    on Iran will create the reaction and momentum desired from China and Russia and Islamic hard liners keeping client Islamic moderates
    out of the conflict thus enabling the US to create the next Arms race and justify the diversion of billions of federal tax dollars from the economy to benefit the Arms companies and sustain jobs. With Euro-zone also going
    Federal the same will take place. So those moderate democratic Islamic states will dare not complain in the future as if they did they will be joining the ranks of the axis of evil and the scenario will continue as it did from 1945. So why this short lesson? Well, be prepared Egyptians for your next democratic
    state, your next government will be moderate Islamic and democratic thus fit for purpose the question is whose purpose?.
