An Egyptian Caravan of Hope

239 am Jul 19 2014 NY

Sisi is not a fan of Hamas. So the mainstream Egyptian narrative has been: ‘ Its too bad about those 300 Palestinians killed but if Hamas wasnt so intransigent they would be alive now.’ Fortunately, there are many Egyptians who arent drinking from ultra nationalist cup. As I type these words 6 large buses trudge their way through the Egyptian landscape on their way to Gaza with desperately needed supplies & medicine..

Sometimes the lies that governments spray dont touch every soul and the humanity and brotherhood that unites us with our Palestinian brethren shines through. When it is darkest, that is when the human within must shine through: a salute to the Egyptian actvists & may their ranks grow.


About Amr Khalifa

An analyst, a political comentator on the uber complex Egyptian and MENA scene. I may not have every answer but I know the questions to ask. When not publishing in Ahram Online, Mada Masr, Daily News Egypt and Muftah I love the dynamic of the short story. If you adore the written word you have come to the right place. Pull up a chair and join me for a cup of literary tea.
