Despite that shameful Anti-Palestinian Pro-Zionist campaign in the mainstream and social media in Egypt by the Pro-Regime supporters now , there are still people who support Gaza and its people.
Yesterday several political parties and movements “mostly leftist” organized a protest in solidarity with Gaza at the Journalists syndicate “back to the stairs” as well a rally in downtown Cairo. Among the prominent figures that showed up in the protest like former Presidential candidate and leftist lawyer Khaled Ali and Liberal politician Amr Hamzawy.
Among those parties : Constitution Party , Egyptian Social Democratic Party , Strong Egypt Party , Popular Socialist Alliance party and the Revolutionary Way.You must bear in mind that this protest was organized during World cup final, Ramadan , Protest law and extreme anti-Gaza media campaign. Here is a photo gallery for the protest and rally.
Already those parties and movements are organizing a relief aid convey to Gaza by the end of this week.
Now there are important updates from Cairo. Egypt is proposing another cease fire initiative. The initiative is based on the following :
- Israel shall cease its attack against the Gaza Strip via land, sea, and air, and shall commit to refrain from conducting a ground attack against Gaza.
- All Palestinian factions in Gaza shall cease all the attacks against from the Gaza Strip via land, sea, air, and underground, and shall commit to refrain from firing all types of rockets.
- The Crossings “Mainly Rafah crossing” shall be opened and the passage of persons and goods through border crossings shall be facilitated once the security situation is stable.
- Other issues, including security issues shall be discussed with the two sides.
Cairo made it clear that both parties should cease fire at 6 AM GMT and within 48 hours following the cease fire a new round of talks in Cairo should start.
Ironically the Palestinian youth especially from Gaza got their initiatives on twitter with their own set of conditions to cease fire.
It is worth to mention that US secretary of state John Kerry is coming to Cairo tomorrow from Vienna.
