Ahmed and Ola getting married at Al Tahrir square
Good luck insh Allah Ahmed and Ola ,sooner you will have a baby in a free new Egypt.
Today there were a Christian mas, Muslim martyr prayer and a concert as well at the Tahrir square.


  1. Zeinobia
    I would like to send this couple a wedding gift.
    You can contact me via Facebook or Twitter aseltohamy
    and I hope when I come back to visit Free EGYPT I get to meet you and thank you face to face

    I live in NJ USA

  2. I know that now is not the time but I'd like to point something out and ask you for a favor.

    Ok first let's point something out. Your last sentence reads:
    "Today there were a Christian mess, Muslim martyr and a concert as well at the Tahrir square."
    Which translates into:
    النهارده كان في فوضى مسيحية وشهيد مسلم وكمان حفلة في ميدان التحرير
    Which, if read by someone who is a first time visitor to your blog would make them think you're crazy or you just choose words at random and stick them together in a sentence.

    Now that that's out of the way, allow me to ask you for a favor:
    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop sodomizing the English language with a baseball bat covered in broken glass for the love of God!!!

    You seem to do this every time you're excited and the sad part is that it makes it very hard for the reader to understand what you're saying because half the time we're trying to make sense of your sentences. Bel3aks ya benti, enti momken tekooni bet3allemni nas el engeleezi ghalat kaman. Why not follow Nawara's example and just go with Arabic?

  3. Zeinobia, I understood you very well without speaking a word of Arabic. Ignore the above poster and SOLIDARITY! You have no idea how proud so many of us throughout the world are. You've struck a HUGE blow against the world order.

    Hasta la victoria siempre!

  4. Hello Zenobia,
    While this picture is very uplifting and I wish the newly married couple all the best. I feel very afraid and very unhappy!

    I was watching Al Jazeera Arabic & English, and saw that the vice-dictator Suleiman has managed to trick a few parties into talks and discussions.

    I am very unhappy about the way these talks have started.

    The revolution asked for the resignation of the dictator, the vice president, the lifting of the state of emergency, the dissolution of the two houses of parliament, a new constitution and a totally free and independent judiciary and press.
    In my opinion the revolution should have also asked for the dissolution if not the banning of the so called National Democratic Party (NDP).

    Tell me, did the French revolutionaries sit down with the French King and started meetings and talks and discussions?
    As far as I know the French king eventually went to the GUILLOTINE.

    So the dictator and his regime (including the army top brass) should feel grateful that they are still alive!

    The parties that are talking to the vice-dictator today have absolutely no connection with the young revolutionaries.

    I am afraid that the dictator is using the old regime tricks and deceitful ways to circumvent the revolution .

  5. I, for one, adore broken English. Authenticity is what counts. Errors in grammar, vocabulary, idioms, colloquialisms, etc. are all forgiven when you bring refreshing news like this post.

    Is this believable? In less than 2 weeks Egypt is cleansing the ills of 30 years. Examples of genuine national unity, camaraderie and caring. Sense of devotion and responsibility between young men and women.
    January 25 is the start of new phase, challenging but the best is yet to come.

  6. Anonymous,

    Given that most of us English speakers are totally illiterate in Arabic, we appreciate Zeinobia's taking the time to keep us informed - immensely! It is very gracious of her to offer us her thoughts.

    And her meaning is always very clear indeed - her spirited writing keep us coming back for more.

  7. Zenobia's english is 10 times better than the arabic of US western and israeli officials on our tv screens. She's communicating in the opposite direction without being a proffessional or getting paid for it, and doing it succesfully as can be seen by the number and variety of visitors on her blog and followers on Twitter. I'm sure you can do much better though, start a blog and show us why don't you?

    P.S. Nawara Nejm is awesome, I think she should have a mock-news show on Egyptian state TV once it restructured like the Tunisian one has

  8. Egyptians will never seize to be creative :)

  9. The marriage of Ola and Ahmed shows how much faith in the future people can have when they have a vision.

    Or as the famous J.K. Rowling once said:
    „We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.“

    You people in Tahrir, in Alex, Ismailia, Beni Suef, Suez and all over Egypt - you are proving to the world that you have the power to imagine better. That is why you will win. Because they are empty inside, they don't have that power, you have. Don't ever forget what you have inside. The power to imagine better that you show to the world makes you invincible.

  10. I have never been more proud to bean Egyptian than these days.

    Zeniab: you are doing an amazing job and allowing our voice to reach the English speaking world! Do not stop please.

  11. Before you criticize the translation of Arabic to English try to use the Google Arabic/English translation service. The result is ALWAYS incoherent. The person whose translations you criticize may have tried to use it.
