Egypt Cries Today

There is much that is wrong with Egypt . Many people simply look at her and say I love you but can not fix what ails you or I simply dont know how. There are rare souls who give everything they are and were to a beloved nation. Today Egypt lost such a man.: Ahmad Seif Il Islam. If you do not know him but know deeply of him and what he gave to a nation in desperate need of humanity know this: he gave without limit. He defended those whose views he opposed before stepping up to defend those in his progressive camp. He left a legacy of 3 humane, giving, decent souls Alaa, Mona and Sanaa who continue to bleed for a nation that is lost.

At a time when Egypt continues to drift to the extreme right wing Egypt today is without one of its leading hearts and minds. The tidal wave of injustice has swept a great man unto another world.

Today he rests eternally . Today we mourn him eternally.

Farewell Sir.


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.
