Yes we are having a tale inside a tale.
Second here are episodes 19, 20 and 21.
Dear readers I am sorry that I have not posted any episode of the Ramadan Arabian Nights in the past days. I do not need to explain the reason why I did not post the episodes in those days.
Without any sophisticated introductions here are double bill episodes , yes we should catch up with Ramadan as well our tale , the tale of prince Amar El Din and King Zanzibar.
First thing you have to remember where we stopped. Click here to refresh your memory with last week’s episode.
Second here are the 16th , 17th and 18th episodes of our tale.
At the same time the world was paying attention to what happened at the Unknown soldiers memorial massacre , Egyptians are angry that international media did not pay attention to what happened in Alexandria from clashes and torture cases last Friday July 26.
Before clashes would erupt in Cairo , Alexandria had its own clashes between the Morsi supporters and Pro-Military supporters for hours. Eleven people were killed in those clashes , hundreds were injured including children and people were also tortured inside mosques.
This was civilians Vs. civilians fight in Alexandria. The army and police did not do anything to stop the clashes for hours. There were firearms and automatics , there were MB supporters , Pro-military supporters and thugs as well non politicalized locals all fighting each other from the testimonies I have been reading. People were armed and killed each other while the authorities were watching.
If tear gas grenades “which are bought by millions” were used according to rules of engagement to disperse the clashes between the two teams we would not have this disaster.
My friend’s uncle was killed in those clashes. Yes my dear friend Ibrahim Gamal El Din lost his uncle in those clashes. Ibrahim was also an eye witness on what happened in this sad night.
The Muslim brotherhood supporters are accused of using not only firearms but rather occupying Al Qaed Ibrahim mosque and torture people there. Already there was an activist from April 6 Youth Movement “Democratic Front” who was badly tortured there and was kept for hours till he was released by army soldiers !!
Here is a storify report with what happened after the break.
Sometimes I do not forget the faces that I film or take photos for , sometimes I remember them very well. He was one of those faces. I can not forget easily how he stayed in a corner near KFC Tahrir branch along his friends drawing the faces of the martyrs and revolutionary drawings against the brutality of the police as well SCAF on 25 January 2012.
Only on Saturday I know that his name was Eissa Essam , a 18 years old revolutionary artist was killed in the Unknown Solider memorial massacre. Eissa is the son of some leading member in the MB and his father and family are currently in Rabaa Sit in.Despite he is a Muslim brotherhood and liberal , he used to visit to the sit in and on the bloody night he was there. It is fate after all.
Essam is a member in The Revolution’s artists group.

It has become a daily routine in Sinai to read that security checkpoints and army patrols are being attacked. It is not a shock anymore to read that someone is killed there from security forces. It also had become a norm to read that Christians in North Sinai not only are being attacked but also to be kidnapped and beheaded.
Today we woke up on horrible terrorist act where a bus carrying workers in Al Arish was targeted by RPG missile. According to the Egyptian armed forces spokesperson the unknown terrorists hit the bus by mistake as their main target was a police patrol. 3 workers were killed and more than 16 have been injured. Yes 3 were killed and not 20 as it had been spread like fire.

It is an empty cycle , in the absence of the civil opposition a military rule will lead to a religious rule and the religious rule will be ousted only through a military coup then after sooner or later it will lead to another religious rule. Some times this cycle is shortened and we find a hybrid between Islamists and military like in SudanThe late thinker got it right.

And here is the new roadmap proposed by the army sans Morsi after a very long day. Yes the army ousted Morsi. Yes it is a coup according to all international and political science standards but it is a coup on the popular demand. The millions were asking for it in our streets for the past 4 days. I heard by own ears from the protesters. This is what the people want and they are happy with it.
Here is the roadmap :
This roadmap actually is the result of several roadmaps proposed by different political parties and movements including Tamaroud and April 6 Youth as well Al Nour Party.
Of course this roadmap was announced after hours of talks with political and religious figures. Among the political figures that attended the meeting with the army and reached to that map : Mohamed ElBaradei , Tamourd’s Mohamed Abdel Aziz and Mahmoud Badr and Sakina Fouad. Interestingly there were members from Al Nour party in the meeting. Now we know that Al Nour party will be there. Already also part of the roadmap was proposed for months by Al Nour. Politically speaking Al Nour party may lose a lot of its supporters due to this move. In fact it had lost some of its base.
#الرئيس محمد مرسي يؤكد تمسكه بالشرعية الدستورية ويرفض أي محاولة للخروج عليها ويدعوالقوات المسلحة سحب إنذارها ويرفض أي إملاءات داخليةأوخارجية
— د.محمد مرسي (@MuhammadMorsi) July 2, 2013
President Mohamed Morsi will hold on the constitutional legitimacy and refuses any attempts to turn against it. He also calls the army to reverse its ultimatum and refuses any domestic or foreign orders.This is a confrontation not only with the public and the Egyptian army but also with the States that called Morsi to hold early Presidential elections.I do not know if this is crazy or not.

مجلس الوزراء يعلن رفضة لخطاب الدكتور مرسي ودفعه الوطن الي حرب أهلية ويعلن المجلس انحيازه لارادة الشعب
— Egyptian Cabinet (@Cabinet_EG) July 2, 2013
"The Cabinet announces its refusal to Dr.Morsi's speech and how it pushes nation to civil war. The Cabinet announces its support to the people's will.
The protests of June 30 were the biggest thing I have seen. It is biggest than the 25 January 2011 and 28 January 2011. It is biggest than any other wave I have seen in Egypt. I saw a cross section from Egyptian society in that big rally or rallies coming from Giza , from Mostafa Mahmoud and trying to cross Al Galaa Bridge to join the rest of the protesters at Tahrir square. Of course they could not join them because the square was full in some historical scene.
Unlike other protests and revolutionary waves , it is no longer a youth movement. It is more varied. I am trying to understand that scene in front of me. Anyhow I could those snap shots below. By the way I am still uploading more photos to the album.
Wait for the video clips.
