Editor

Dhu al-Qa'dah 08, 14382017-08-01

It was three years ago that the Egyptian army perpetrated a bloodbath against innocent civilians in Cairo. General Sisi was and remains head of the military regime. Far from condemning the killings of innocent, Sisi is welcomed in Western capitals.

Crescent International

Rajab 26, 14382017-04-23

The fickleness of Arabian potentates was again on display today as the Egyptian dictator Abdel Fatah el Sisi landed in Riyadh. The aged and dementia-afflicted Saudi King Salman received him at the airport as Sisi stepped off the plane. Did Salman recognize the balding man from Cairo?

Egypt, Saudi relations weak and fragile

Amir Sajadi

Jumada' al-Ula' 04, 14382017-02-01

There is little in common between the Egyptian and Saudi regimes even if both are puppets of the West and the Saudis have tried to buttress the crumbling Egyptian economy. Their differences are coming to the fore amid rising tensions between the two oppressive regimes.

Rabi' al-Thani 03, 14382017-01-01

The fickle Arabian rulers are at each other’s throat one minute and rubbing noses and kissing the next. This is what is happening with the rulers of two regimes: Bani Saud of Arabia and the Pharaoh of Egypt.

Tahir Mustafa

Bani Qaynuqa‘, Bani al-Nadir, and Bani Qurayzah back in Madinah!

Tahir Mustafa

Dhu al-Qa'dah 29, 14372016-09-01

The Zionists are not shy about declaring that hundreds of thousands of Israelis have been visiting ‘Saudi’ Arabia even though the two regimes have no formal diplomatic relations. We need to bear in mind that Zionist maps show Makkah and Madinah as part of ‘Greater Israel’.

Abu Dharr

Shawwal 27, 14372016-08-01

Using the garb of Sufism, the self-styled religious preacher, Fethullah Gulen has turned out to be a US-Zionist puppet who is prepared to advance their agenda. This is how the enemies of Islam operate.

Saudi-Egypt: A bridge too far

Crescent International

Rajab 02, 14372016-04-09

Will the Saudis achieve their political and military objectives by building a bridge across the Red Sea to link-up with Egypt? If the bridge between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain is any guide, it will merely mean more Saudis satiating their carnal desires, this time going West. As far as the Saudis creating an anti-Iran alliance is concerned, which is what the bridge is reality meant for, it will be a non-starter. The Saudis will not survive.

Ayman Ahmed

Muharram 19, 14372015-11-01

The ballot papers were all printed and arranged in neat piles in each polling station. The ballot boxes duly locked were also delivered to the appropriate polling stations. There were even election officials present — a remarkable achievement in a country where the bureaucracy is notorious for its lethargy.

Dim prospects for Geneva peace talks on Yemen

Crescent International

Sha'ban 28, 14362015-06-15

While unable to directly block UN-brokered peace talks on Yemen in Geneva that started today, the Najdi Bedouins, displaying childish behavior, forced the Egyptian regime to refuse permission for the plane carrying Yemeni representatives from flying over its territory. In the absence of Ansarullah and representatives of the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh, the talks are bound to fail.

Yusuf Dhia-Allah

Rajab 12, 14362015-05-01

No single Arabian army or a combination of them has ever won a single battle. Their sole achievement has been to conquer their own hapless people. A new plan proposes an “Arab” army; it will be used to suppress internal dissent, more efficiently!

Egypt’s courts blot on the name of justice

Ayman Ahmed

Rajab 12, 14362015-05-01

Crescent International

Jumada' al-Ula' 26, 14362015-03-17

An Egyptian court has handed down another batch of mass death sentences. The victims include leader of the Ikhwan al Muslimoon Mohamed Badie and 13 others. An additional 31 persons in prison will be sentenced on April 11. Egyptian courts have earned the dubious distinction of delivering farcical verdicts that have nothing to do with the law and everything to do with pleasing their masters in uniform.

Egypt is a basket case. It needs massive infusion of aid to survive. The Saudi regime and the putative potentates of the Gulf shaikhdoms cannot continue to finance the dictatorship indefinitely. It has had to beg the west for bailout.
