المهندس حمدي الفخراني

The old Egyptian and the young Egyptian were drinking the tea together and chatting ...

Old E: Did not I tell you that Egypt will get out of all trouble as it always did.

Young E: ????

Old E: Did not you hear about المهندس حمدي الفخراني

Yound E: Yes, this guy managed to get a court Order to show how Talat Mostafa company has took the land from the government almost for free and made the government lose almost 200 Billion EGP (and not Millions).

Old E: As long as there are Egyptians like this guy we are safe. He also announced while he was talking to Mona ElShazaly on Dream that the current minister; Magharabi, has stolen land for his own company as well and that is his next target. The next thing you hear, President Mobarak ask that the land of Magharabi to return back. I am really proud of حمدي الفخراني.

Yound E: I can see what you are saying but: Magharabi is still in power and did you hear that

طعنت شركة طلعت مصطفى أمام المحكمة الإدارية العليا على الحكم الصادر من القضاء الإداري والقاضي ببطلان هذا العقد.

وجاء في الطعن وجوب توافر شرطي الصفة والمصلحة في مقيم الدعوى، إذ تبين من الدعوى أن صاحبها ليس له صفة أو مصلحة في إقامتها.

Old E: This is shamless to say the least. They are saying that an Egyptian can not protect the land of Egypt? Who else should defend it?

Young E: It is really sad ... you feel that there is no way out ...

Old E: No ... do not say that حمدي الفخراني will take care of them.

Young E: It is not enough ... every Egyptian should do his part ... It is too much for one man to protect Egyptian land.

Old E: hmmmmm ....

Wear black until the government is gone

Here is an idea. Let us wear black for as long as it takes until there is real election in Egypt. I was watching Mostafa Abdu on Dream and it is scary how the elections in sport clubs are also fake. Until when this will go on.

Old Egyptian and Young Egyptian

The young Egyptian was concerned about what is happening between the lawyers and the judges in Egypt. The old Egyptian was trying to explain what is going on ...

Young E: What is going on? Are the judges to be blamed in this?

Old E: It is complicated .... let me explain to you .... What you see is the result of "Tawreeth" Tawreeth in every thing. Not just Mobarak and gamal but University professors, Doctors, Police Officers and judges ... all of them try to put their kids in their profession.

Young E: So by doing this they make some people thing they are above the law.

Old E: Yes, if you are Police officer and son of a Police officer and grandson of a Police officer ... or if you are a judge and son of a judge and grandson of a judge ... of course you will think that you are above the law.

Young E: But what really started all this friction between the lawyers and the judges?

Old E: Here is the story .... It is what happens to the law students after graduation. Those who graduate with high degree (but not from powerful family) sit without work and call themselves lawyers and those who graduate with very weak grades (but come from powerful families) become "Wakeel Niaba" ... and eventually the two meet ... the "Very Good" lawyer in front of the "Makbol" Wakil Niaba ... of coure the "Wakeel Niaba" will treat the "Very Good" Lawyer is a piece of dirt ... and the "Very Good" Lawyer has a certin threeshold before he/she can explode!

Young E: So what you are saying is that we (Egyptians) are to blame for the corruption and "koasa" that we have been using and not the National Party Government and Mobarak?

Old E: Yes, the people themselves are contribtuing to this atmosphere ... but take it easy on them. This can all be traced to the Economical tough time we have. If you are a judge or a policeman and your kid is going to sit home with no work if you do not pull some strings for him/her, what you are going to do? especially with all your relatives, friends, and almost every one ... are doing the same for their own kids?

Young E: .....

Old E: I see you are sad! Do not!

Young E: ???

Old E: Egypt has been thru very tough times all over the history and somehow it eventually recovers! There are very good Egptians every where and those will save the day.

Young E: Yes, you are right. I used to have a professor in my unviersity that was amazing. He was very knowledgable and very fair. He used to go to his landlord every year and raise the rent on himself just because he wanted to be fair. This professor was taking the microbus every day from the front of the university to go home and we all used to see him whereas many other professors were riding fancy cars. He did not have a car! and he was by far the best professor I had in my university.

Old E: See ... it those Egyptians that will save the day. Do not worry!

Young E: ......

Khaled's death in Alexandria

I am very sad to see the face of dead khaled on the news.

Every human (including criminals) has to be treated better than this. I do remember one incident when I was a college kid in Egypt, meeting in the summer in Alexandria with my high school friends and sharing our stories from our first year in college. Some of us went to Engineering and some went to Commerce, and one of us went to Police academy. His name was "Tariq" and he has this story that was amazing. He said he had an accident with his car and the guy he hit wanted to go to the police station. When they went their (according to "Tariq") and the police officer in the station knew that Tariq was a first year student in the Police Academy he told "Tariq" to go with this guy to another room and he handed "Tariq" a whip and told him to get his right from this guy!

That was a story I never forgot. Even if it was not true and "Tariq" was just making it up to tell us how powerful he has became by being a 1st year student in the Police academy. The scary story is that "Tariq" expected us to believe the story. It was the norm! It is OK for police officer to hit people in the Police station without a judge or trial.

NO, it is not OK. No, Egyptians will not be beaten by Police officer any more! Enough is Enough. Let us all wear black to say we refuse to be beaten in Police Stations, no matter what we did, no matter who we are, no more beating!
