My Egypt Revolution’s posts: February 16



  • ‎”Hisham Zaazou, assistant to the Tourism Minister, said squares worldwide have become tourist destinations due to their significance in history. Tahrir Square has become a symbol of a popular revolution, he said”.
    So, the interest wouldn’t be honouring the more than 300 dead, but just bringing cash in. Remarkable.

    Tourism experts called for making Tahrir Sqaure a tourist destination as a memorial to the 18-day protests staged in the square which resulted in the toppling of former President Hosni Mubarak’s regime.

  • Te has vuelto un agitador internacional, mi estimado. Por donde apareces hay bronca y cae un gobierno. ¿No te dan ganas de volver pronto? No nos vendría mal tu singular condición “derribadora”. Abrazos

  • Morocco is another Arab country under a terrible dictatorship. this is aggravated by a corrupt monarchy that stands above all citizens and their human rights. No one touches the king in this video calling for a demonstration next sunday. He should be careful, though: Iran’s supreme leader went from respected to most hated in a few weeks of Green Revolution

      • Liliana Martinez Tienes razón Témoris todo es posible, ahora lo sé! Tanto la juventud iraní y marroquí han de aceptar con singular valor y apasionadamente su lucha, porque sus gobiernos pueden permanecer unos días o años. Pero ha de vivirse con los conflictos y vientos, como decía Hikmet: hemos de seguir viviendo con todo el mundo exterior que se halla tras el muro de nuestros sufrimientos; es decir: estemos donde estemos hemos de vivir como si nunca hubiésemos de morir! Bismillah!

  • A concert in Tahrir and an ad-hoc song. You will hear the main slogans of the Egyptian Revolution: erhal! (go!), yaskot, yaskot, Hosni Mubarak! (down, down, Hosni Mubarak!) and mesh hanemshi, howa yemshi (we’ll not leave, he must leave)

  • I saw this happening, even though I didn’t know who the victim was. It was impossible for me to intervene and a few Egyptians prevented me to move, for my own safety. The mob was screaming “agent, agent”, and said she was Israeli, but they don’t mention that here. Similar things happened to other journalists, it wasn’t rare, and several times we felt under threat

        Many self-appointed spy- and Israeli- hunters would approach us making questions, demanding to see our passports and once a man yelled trying to get other people’s attention, cause he’d found us to be Israelis. Luckily we were in an isolated area of Tahrir and our friends managed to appease him (he ended up giving a present to my friend Andi, from the US: a sepha, a Muslim rosary).
        That’s a characteristic of revolutions and many big human gatherings: mob justice is stupidity at its best.

      • Témoris Grecko By February 8th, the Committee for the Protection of Journalists had listed 140 aggressions against journalists, mainly from government-linked forces, but also from protesters. This includes an Egyptian colleague who was shot and killed by a sniper

  • Témoris: me encantó tu crónica para Esquire, y aún sigo riendo con la foto de Rania Helmy (el pollo más famoso del mundo en manos de los soldados), vaya que información la de la TV del gobierno ¿ a quién quería dormir?. Ahora Egipto deberá buscar democracia. Irán, Bahrein, Argelia y Marruecos se contagiarán?
