29 Nov 2012

The Arab League marked the annual anniversary of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People on Thursday, November 29.

A number of foreign envoys participated in the event.

Arab League Chief Nabil al-Araby said that it's time for the Palestinians to gain their freedom and independence to live like other peoples freely in their independent homeland.

He called on the international community to work to achieve this goal.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Arab League Chief Nabil al-Araby:
“The world has to realize that the Palestinian cause is the real key for implementing peace and security in the region, not in the region only, but all over the world. And the continued failure of the international community in finding an equitable and comprehensive solution for this decades-long conflict leads to continued instability in this region.”

The Arab League stressed the need for intensive efforts by the international community for the realization of the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.

For his part, Richard Falk, the UN special Rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories warned that without implementation of the full agreement between Israel and Palestinians, ceasefire will evaporate in a cloud of smoke.

SOUNDBITE 2 (English) - Richard Falk, the UN special Reporter on human rights in the Palestinian territories:
“It is a tense historical moment of heavy consequences for the Palestinian people and for the peoples and governments of the region. I along with many others throughout the world share Nelson Mandela's view that the denial of Palestinian rights remains the greatest moral issue of our time"

The United Nations International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People is observed on November 29 each year to give the widest support and publicity to Palestinian cause. Solidarity Day provides an opportunity for the international community to focus its attention on the fact that the Palestinian cause is still unresolved.

Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas has chosen this day to formally ask the United Nations General Assembly to recognize Palestine as a “non-member state.”

Cairo, Egypt
By Editor's Picks
27 Nov 2012

Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi's decision last week to stifle the Judiciary committee's ability to review presidential decisions caused mass protests in the streets of Cairo, and elsewhere.
Many Egyptians have become increasingly aggravated by Morsi, and the Muslim Brotherhood's moves to exert ever greater control of the direction of the government, seeing it as an affront to democracy and the efforts of a people who strove mightily late last year to overthrow former dictator Hosni Mubarak.

Morsi however, maintains that the decision was for the good of the Egyptian government and will not be permanent. Still, the decree feels to many like a power grab that could shift Egypt into a new and dangerous direction.

Lebanese army forces were deployed immediately to the area to contain the situation, though gunfire could be heard throughout the day.

The clashes erupted when Sheikh Al-Assir and his supporters, opponents of Hezbollah and Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, demanded the removal of Hezbollah banners from Sidon by Sunday. In defiance, Hezbollah Shiite supporters continued preparing the banners for massive rituals to be held late November.

The sectarian clashes add tension to the situation in Lebanon folloeing the assassination of a senior intelligence official in October.

Egypt's Head Prosecutor Bans Internet...
Cairo, Egypt
By Video Cairo Sat
10 Nov 2012

STORYLINE:

Most Egyptians approved of the recent decision of Egypt’s General Prosecutor Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud to order government authorities to block any "corrupt or corrupting" pornographic images or scenes inconsistent with the values and traditions of the Egyptian people, and the higher interests of the state.

An official in the prosecutor's office said the order followed a protest by Salafists, who have launched a campaign called "Pure Net" with the goal of prohibiting pornographic websites.

The campaign is backed by several prominent Salafist preachers as it calls for the prohibition of adult websites in Egypt on grounds that such sites violate Egyptian customs and values.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Coordinator of “Pure Net Campaign, Cairo University”, Mohamed Hossam:
“The Campaign of pure Net is a youth plan to ban the porn sites. It seeks to ban all porn sites to preserve Egyptian behavior as east community which rejects the presence of this phenomenon inside the community.”

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Software Engineer for Web Applications, Ahmed Abu-Baker:
“The banning of porn sites is available for any country, and any government can do that as well by blocking the actual host of the websites or even by blocking the website itself within the IP.”

Mahmoud sent official letters to the Communications and Information Technology Minister, the Interior Minister and the head of the National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority on Wednesday, November 7, ordering them to block pornographic websites.

He wrote that such websites show images that are contrary to the values and traditions of Egyptian society and the national interest according to the statements of his spokesperson Adel al-Saeed.

Most Egyptians support the decision to ban porn sites, highlighting the fact that Egyptian society is conservative by nature and the decision will serve to preserve Egypt's social norms and values.

SOUDNBITE 3 (Arabic) – Egyptian citizen, Khaled:
“I think that the decision of the General-Prosecutor to block the porn sites is very good decision because a big category of the Egyptian society use the internet so it is illogical to let all the sites available for all the people particularly the porn sites.”

SOUNDBITE 4 (Arabic) - Egyptian citizen, Mohamed Ibrahim:
“Actually it is a very good decision because it is illogical that I have internet at my home and my young child enters on it and goes to such porn sites to see inconsistent scenes so I see it is a very good decision.”

Meanwhile on the part of liberal critics, the decision was met by uproar and concern about the possible impact such legislation might have on the freedom of expression.

They believe that the general ban may pave the way for more Internet regulations to come.

In May 2009, Egypt's High Administrative Court declared a ban on pornographic websites. The move was based on a lawsuit filed by Islamist lawyer Nezar Ghourab.

The court said such websites help spread vice, which destroys traditions, beliefs and morals, and therefore the country’s interests as well as social and national security.

Hundreds of Egyptian doctors marched on Thursday, November 8, from Omar Makram Mosque in Tahrir Square to the Egyptian State TV Building (Maspero), holding a symbolic funeral for the Ministry of Health as part of their ongoing strike calling for healthcare reforms.
On the 39th day of their strike the protesting doctors wore black clothes, holding in their hands white coats to represent coffins.
They shouted slogans and raised banners demanding social justice and better hospital security.
Their major demands include an increase of healthcare share in the general budget to 15%, better health services, increased security at health facilities and higher pay.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Mohamed Abdel-Sattar, a striking doctor:
“We decided today to hold a symbolic march entitled ‘the funeral of Egyptian healthcare’ due to the Health Ministry’s disregard of the strike’s three legitimate demands: to increase the healthcare budget, to increase security at hospitals and to implement the cadre of doctors within three years, not now. We want to live a decent life like everyone.”

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Amr Shura, media coordinator of the doctors’ strike committee:
“Today is the 39th day of the doctors’ strike. We tried everything. We held marches, protests, marches, etc. We’re not required to provide solutions but we did. However, there was no response. Today, we tell the health minister that he’s failed.”

A number of political forces voiced support for the mock funeral procession of the striking doctors, protesting against alleged deteriorating healthcare and negligent government.
The doctors threatened to escalate the situation if their demands are not met.
The April 6 Youth Movement, Revolutionary Socialists, National Front for Justice and Democracy and Youth for Freedom and Justice are among the forces taking part in the march.
The doctors’ partial strike started on October 1 after being approved on September 21 at a Doctors Syndicate emergency general assembly meeting.

Protesters demand Vietnamese authorities return their land during a demonstration in the capital.
At least 100 people held rare protests in Ly Tu Trong Park in Hanoi the 7th of november. They were demonstrating against what they said were illegal land grabs in two areas on the outskirts of the city, protesters said. According to Radio Free Asia last June, "Vietnamese authorities arrested 30 farmers from Duong Noi as they held protests in front of a municipal building in the capital demanding the government return land they say they were forcibly evicted from three years ago." All land in Vietnam belongs to the state, with people having only the right to use it. Land expropriation has been linked to several high-profile incidents of unrest in recent years. Last week, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong signed the Resolution 19-NQ/TW on continuing the renovation of land policies in a bid to create the foundation for Vietnam to become a modern-oriented industrial country by 2020.

Protest outside French Embassy in Leb...
French Embassy, Beirut, Lebanon
By U.S. Editor
04 Nov 2012

During the visit of French President Francois Hollande to Lebanon on Sunday, November 4, dozens of Lebanese gathered outside the French Embassy in Beirut demanding the release of Lebanese activist Georges Abdullah who has been jailed in France since 1984 over alleged involvement in the killing of a US security official and an Israeli diplomat.

The protestors raised signs and posters of Abdullah and shouted statements demanding his release.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Simon Abdullah, Georges’ brother:
“Today, the French President is coming to Lebanon to teach us democracy and tell us about human rights and freedom. At the same time, his jails imprison a young man for 28 years in violation of the French law. We hope that the Lebanese authorities remind France’s President that there is a prisoner in the French jails and that if he talks about democracy let him release Georges Abdullah.”

Abdullah used to be a communist activist and he was sentenced to a maximum of 18 years in prison but he remained in custody in France for the past 28 years.

His brother Joseph claims that George’s detention is due to American and Israeli pressure and because Lebanon has not demanded his release from the French authorities.

Abdullah always says in courtrooms that he would return to his struggle to liberate Palestine from the Israelis once he is released.

Trial of defendants in NGO foreign fu...
Cairo Criminal Court, Cairo, Egypt
By Video Cairo Sat
04 Nov 2012

Cairo criminal court adjourned on Saturday, November 3, the trial of 43 foreign and Egyptian NGO workers to the session of December 2.

The defendants are accused of illegally receiving foreign funds and operating in Egypt without permission from the authorities.

Among the accused are 19 American citizens, 14 Egyptians and 10 other non-Egyptian nationals.

The delay is decided to allow the lawyers of the defendants to give their arguments before the court.

The court today heard the prosecution's representative who accused the defendants of defrauding the Egyptian people. He concluded his remarks by imploring the court to apply the harshest punishment on the accused.

Some Egyptian officials have linked the funding of civil society initiatives to a U.S. plot to undermine Egypt’s sovereignty while the United States and the civil society workers deny the accusations.

The defendants, including the son of the U.S. transportation secretary, are accused of receiving illegal funds from abroad and carrying out political activities unrelated to their civil society work.

The trial began earlier in February and resulted in an unusual confrontation between Cairo and Washington due to the involvement of a number of US organizations in the case.

Although the case is still going on, the American defendants departed Egypt on March 1, when the Supreme Council of the Armed Force (SCAF) was ruling the country.

Hundreds Of Protesters In Tahrir Squa...

By Video Cairo Sat
03 Nov 2012

Hundreds of Islamist supporters gathered on Friday, November 2, at Iconic Tahrir Square, for a preliminary demonstration calling for the implementation of Sharia (Islamic law) in Egypt’s new constitution.
Protestors chanted statements calling for the implementation of the Islamic law like “No democracy, no liberalism, only Sharia.”
Protesters said "We are here to tell the Constituent Assembly which is tasked with drafting Egypt’s new constitution that Egypt is an Islamic country."
They are also calling for Sharia to become the only source of legislation.
A stage was set in the square with speakers calling for the application of Islamic Sharia in an attempt to mount the pressure on the Constituent Assembly.
A mass rally is scheduled for 9 November by a group of Islamist forces to reinforce their demand.
Several Islamist political groups, including Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya, the Freedom and Justice Party and Al-Dawa Al-Salafiya have announced that they will form a coalition of political parties and Islamic forces to ensure that Egypt's new constitution is shaped in accordance with Islamic Sharia law, as they said they will organize a protest on November 2 to press for their cause.
However, the Islamist coalition agreed to postpone Friday's planned protests, which had been planned under the slogan "Demanding the application of Sharia in the constitution," until they are able to rally more people for their cause.

Egyptians Address Morsi during Eid - ...
Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
27 Oct 2012

During the first Sacrifice Feast (Eid al-Adha) under the rule of President Mohamed Morsi, Egyptians send their president messages with various demands and issues that they wished would have been settled by the Eid.

The lack of security was the number one demand of Egyptians and the first wish they wanted Morsi to hear on this holy Muslim occasion.

Egyptians also address their new President to focus on the youth and work on providing them with housing and job opportunities, as unemployment in the country has exceeded 12%.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Beesa Talaat, Egyptian woman:
“Our demand from President Morsi is security, safety, stability and to live in a clean country, those are mainly the things that he already promised us. Adding to that, we want him to provide us with proper means of public transportation, and also we want the police to return back to normal.” SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Ahmed Abdel-Aaty, Egyptian young man:
“One of the main problems we face is traffic, those few days before Eid; the traffic was unbearable, and one of the main problems also is cleanliness, which they still didn’t find solutions for, so hopefully step by step; we will make some achievement if people would cooperate with the government.”

A clean environment is also among the top demands of Egyptians.

President Morsi launched a two-day “Clean Homeland” campaign late July, during which workers, bulldozers, machines and officials could be seen everywhere nationwide. However, piles of garbage gradually returned to fill Egyptian streets.

Some Egyptians also demand retrial of those who killed peaceful protestors during the January 25 Revolution last year, complaining that most of the perpetrators have been acquitted.

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Ahmed Mansour, Egyptian man, Engineer at General Motors:
“I was hoping to see more achievements from President Mosri, to feel that he came after a real successful revolution and that he came to achieve the goals that were set by that revolution, for me this is the main issue…I don’t feel that President Mosri achieved anything out of the revolution goals.”

President Morsi promised that his first 100-day plan would put an end to five main problems in Egypt: lack of security, garbage in the streets, traffic jams and shortages of bread and fuel. However, monitoring activists say that Morsi achieved only 9.37% of the promises of his first 100 days.

In a previous speech, Morsi gave greater indication of the progress he made in the five major issues than what a lot of Egyptians actually feel.

Skyrocketing Food Prices Ahead Of Mus...
Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
25 Oct 2012

Skyrocketing prices hit Egyptians ahead of the big Muslim holiday, the Feast of Sacrifice (Eid Al-Adha), particularly the prices of meat, vegetables and fruits, which Egyptians buy in exceptionally large quantities on this occasion.

Muslims in Egypt and worldwide buy sacrificial animals, whether a cow, ram, goat, etc, to slaughter on the first day of the Feast, known by Muslims as Eid, but those who cannot afford it just buy meat to cook and share with family members.

The kilogram of meat used to vary from 35 to 40 Egyptian pounds, but on these days it has exceeded 70 pounds, which is not affordable by a lot of Egyptians, 40% of which live under poverty line. [1 USD = 6.1 EGP]

Egyptian butchers complain that the difficult financial conditions of the people reflected in their selling.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Ali Abdel-Tawwab, butcher, store owner:
“Selling is very weak and things are very quiet. The difficult financial conditions affect everything, the people and the market.”

Rising prices didn’t stop at meat, but the prices of vegetables and fruits also recorded notable increase.

Some vegetable and fruit sellers say that the Eid eve used to be a prime selling season before the revolution, and that this year the selling on this day is just like other days.

Egyptian customers now reduce the quantities of food they used to buy for such an occasion, whether it is meat, fruits or vegetables.

Some see that food prices are incredibly higher this year while others see that they are reasonable.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Fatima, woman, customer at the marketplace:
“Whether it is on Eid days or ordinary days, Food prices have become very expensive. It’s rather too expensive.”

A few hours before the big Muslim holiday kicks off, Egyptians, 90% of whom are Muslims, hope that the new president and his government fulfill their promises regarding improving people’s standard of living and financial conditions, boosting economy and reducing poverty.

22 Oct 2012

Egypt’s National Council for Women expressed rejection of the first draft of the country’s new revolution for allegedly limiting women’s rights, feminists said on Monday, October 22, in a press conference held at the Journalists Syndicate headquarters in Cairo.

Many male political activists also attended the conference to show solidarity with women and voice rejection of the new constitution draft.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Mervat Tellawy, head of the National Council for Women:
“The new constitution that comes after January 25 Revolution must not diminish the rights of women, children, family, judiciary institutions, Al-Azhar honorable institution, the freedom of expression and creativity.”

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – George Ishaaq, political activist and founder of Kefaya Movement:
“We want Egypt’s women to be on equal footing with Egypt’s men, particularly in the Constituent Assembly (CA) that drafts the constitution. The CA is invalid.”

Feminists and human rights activists stressed that women worked side by side with men during January 25 Revolution in 2011 that ousted former president Hosni Mubarak.

Among the controversial articles in the draft constitution is one replacing “trafficking of women” to “violating the rights of women,” which feminists see as evasive and rubbery that doesn’t address the crime of human trafficking in the international law.

The attendees said that the articles about women’s right in the draft constitution are considered “repressive.”

Cairo Criminal Court adjourned on Sunday, October 21, the trial of seven Egyptian Copts living in the United States, Canada and Australia for producing an anti-Islam film insulting Prophet Mohammed according to Muslims to the session of November 25.

The defendants also included US pastor Terry Jones who publicly burnt the Muslim Quran in a church in Florida.

The defendants face charges of defaming Islam and attempting to cause sectarian strife in Egypt.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Judge Saif al-Nasr Suleiman:
“The court has decided to adjourn the case to the session of November 25, 2012. The claimants have to inform the defendants of their civil claims and the prosecution has to inform the defendants of the criminal claim.”

The anti-Islam film produced by Egyptian Copts living abroad caused turmoil and protests against the United States in several Arab and Muslim countries for allowing the film.

Islam is the second-largest religion in the world, and Muslims comprise about one-sixth of the world’s population. In Egypt, Muslims represent about 90% of the country’s 91-million people.

21 Oct 2012

Calmness prevailed around the Lebanese Cabinet headquarters on Sunday, October 21, after angry protestors attempted to break into the building demanding government resignation.

Security men dispersed the protestors using teargas shots.

The public rage was a reaction to the assassination of intelligence chief Wissam al-Hassan through a car bomb explosion, which killed seven others and injured over a hundred.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – A protesting man:
“There wasn’t a decision made to break into the Cabinet. On the contrary, the decision was to protect the Cabinet and its privacy. But we have a message for the Prime Minister Najib Mikati telling him that we do not want him as prime minister and that he protected the murderers and did not do anything to serve this country or to protect its people.”

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – A protesting woman:
“We’re participating in this sit-in because we want to oust the government of Hezbollah and Bashar al-Assad. We need to know what we are heading to in the future. We don’t feel secure because of Hezbollah’s weapons, which have become numerous enough to cause us to fear for our lives.”

The Cabinet building was surrounded by tight security cordon and barded wires.

Several were injured in the clashes but calmness eventually returned to the cabinet area, although protestors remained until the evening.

Security men and protestors were separated by security barriers in an atmosphere of cautious calmness.

21 Oct 2012

A grand ceremony was held on Sunday, October 21, in Beirut for the burial of Lebanese intelligence chief Wissam al-Hassan, who was killed in a car bomb explosion in Beirut’s Ashrafiyeh neighborhood along with seven others and upwards of a hundred of injured.

Angry civilians attended the funeral procession carrying banners and posters of Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah and Prime Minister Najib Mikati who many believe are responsible for the assassination.

Al-Hassan was buried next to late PM Rafik al-Hariri who was similarly assassinated in 2005.

The massive congregation turned into a protest calling for immediate government resignation.

Mikati showed readiness to resign after the bombing but President Michel Suleiman convinced him not to at such a critical time.

After the funeral, clashes erupted between security men and angry protestors who raised banners of the Syrian opposition group Future Movement, while others and tried to break into the Cabinet headquarters in Beirut.

Security forces tried to disperse the protestors by firing teargas canisters, and other means, which led to several injuries.

Analysts warn against a spark of civil war in Lebanon which is already undergoing political turmoil.

A grand ceremony was held on Sunday, October 21, in Beirut for the burial of Lebanese intelligence chief Wissam al-Hassan, who was killed in a car bomb explosion in Beirut’s Ashrafiyeh neighborhood last week. Angry civilians protested at the event, carrying posters and banners of Hezbollah's Nasrallah and Prime Minister Najib Mikati, who many hold responsible for the assassination. Though calm was restored to downtown Beirut, many protesters were injured as security forces used tear gas and barbed wire to control the masses.

Protesters burned tires and set up roadblocks around Lebanon Saturday, October 20, in an angry response to the massive car bomb that killed senior intelligence official Wissam al Hassan, who was allegedly leading an investigation into a Lebanese politician accused of working with two Syrian officials to plan a string of attacks inside Lebanon. The blast killed at least eight people and wounded over 100. Saturday was declared a day of mourning in the country, though protesters set up roadblocks in Beirut, Sidon, Tripoli and the Bekaa Valley. Many Lebanese worry that the explosion is evidence of an escalation of Syria's war spilling over the borders and fear a return to the wave of political assassinations that rattled Lebanon between 2005 and 2008.

Tensions Rise as Egyptian Courts to Rule on Defaming Christianity and Islam in Two Separate Cases

In the aftermath of massive protests and violent reactions to the anti-Islam video "The Innocence of Muslims," an undercurrent of tension boils just below the surface as issues of religious defamation rise to the forefront, as seen in two recent court cases in Egypt.

One case involves a young Egyptian Coptic Christian, Alvert Saber, who is being accused of blasphemy and advocating atheism for posting clips of the infamous video online. Saber, who denies posting the clips, is not only accused of insulting Islam, but Christianity as well. Human Rights activists call for his release and advocate for his right to freedom of expression. His trial is set for November 14th.

Abou Islam, head of Umma Islamic channel and chairman of Islamic Enlightenment Center, is accused of publicly and scornfully insulting Christianity after allegedly tearing-up and burning a Bible on Sep 11 outside the US Embassy in Cairo, which he did in response to the film. Islam stated that the book was not a Bible, but a book of Terry Jones, a controversial US evangelical preacher who oversaw the burning of a copy of the Quran in a small Florida church.

Included is video footage of the protests, where violent backlash broke out along with some peaceful demonstrations in several locations including Egypt, Lebanon, Malaysia and Tunisia.

The defense staff of the young man said that their client said he was persecuted in custody by one of the prisoners under orders of a police officer.

The prosecution investigations revealed that the defendant used Islam and Christianity to promote his extreme thoughts on the Internet, mocking God and his prophets and calling for atheism.

A number of human rights activists and supporters call for the release of Saber as he has been practicing his freedom of expression.

Egypt’s Constitutional Court Rejects ...
Cairo, Egypt
By Video Cairo Sat
16 Oct 2012

The head of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) Judge Maher al-Beheiry held a press conference on Tuesday, October 16, where he announced that the court rejects all constitutional draft articles concerning its powers.

Al-Beheiry described the position appointed to the court by the constituent assembly, which is drafting Egypt’s new constitution, as a setback and clear intervention in the court's affairs.

He added that the draft constitution represents an attempt to interfere in the affairs of the Constitutional Court, which is independent and above interference.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Judge Maher al-Beheiry, Head of Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC):
“The Supreme Constitutional Court was surprised that its regulating articles in the draft constitution were contrary to what the SCC recommended, which leads to its lack of independency required for it to do its duty and takes away major specializations of the SCC that are indispensable.”

Al-Beheiry said that the SCC general assembly would be in permanent session until the articles, which he described as threatening to the independence of the court, are amended.

For her part, SCC vice-chief Tahany al-Gebaly, Egypt’s first and only female judge, stressed the necessity of guarantees for the independence of the constitutional judiciary in the new constitution.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) - Judge Tahany al-Gebaly, SCC vice-chairman:
“In order to treat the first draft of the constitution through the Constituent Assembly, if it remains, the SCC due to its historical responsibilities gives its opinion before all Egyptians and those concerned with the future of Egypt regarding guarantees of the independence of constitutional judiciary and its ability to perform its role.”

According to Article 184 in the draft constitution, the court can examine proposed bills, regulating presidential, parliamentary and municipal elections, but it also stipulates that bills are immune from any judicial scrutiny once approved by the parliament.

On Wednesday, Egypt's constituent assembly released its first official draft constitution.

Earlier in June, the SCC withdrew its representatives from the constituent assembly to maintain a neutral stance.

The SCC ruled in June that the law that regulated last year's parliamentary elections was unconstitutional which led to the dissolution of the People's Assembly (the lower house of Egypt's parliament), which had appointed the Constituent Assembly's 100 members.

By Video Cairo Sat
15 Oct 2012

Lebanese President Michel Suleiman said on Monday, October 15, that Israel has never stopped damaging vast agricultural areas to displace citizens, adding that Israel should stop aggressions against people in agricultural zones of Southern Lebanon.
Suleiman gave a speech at a conference, marking the occasion of World Food Day, organized by the Lebanese Ministry of Agriculture in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.
The conference was organized under the slogan “Agricultural Cooperatives Feed the World”.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Lebanese President Michel Suleiman:
“The courtiers resorting to aggression and occupation should be forced to retreat and submit to international will. This applies to Israel, which has not stopped since its establishment, resorting to aggression and various aggressive practices, including damaging vast agricultural areas, uprooting tens of thousands of trees and burning gardens in order to displace farmers and villagers of whole towns, and broaden its area and impose a new reality. Isn’t planting cluster bombs and mines in Southern Lebanon a type of masked occupation?”
Suleiman said that attention should be given to the agricultural sector through the necessary funding, adding that the act of addressing the issue of food safety remains the Lebanese government’s first duty.
He announced that the government had begun implementing the agriculture development strategy since 2010 and was able so far to develop the agricultural infrastructure. Lebanese President also called for adopting necessary measures to introduce Lebanese products into world markets.
SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Lebanese President Michel Suleiman:
“Therefore, the state started to apply the strategy of developing the agricultural sector since 2010 and managed to accomplish many basic stages of this strategy, including the development of agriculture infrastructure, providing studies and research, issuing and developing necessary legislation. All this effort focuses on the necessity of giving Lebanese farmers and all agricultural sectors the ability to be independent and to allow them to gradually go without all forms of government subsidies.”
World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on October 16, the day when the FAO was founded in 1945.
The day is celebrated widely by many other organizations concerned with food security.

Clashes Erupt In Egypt’s Tahrir Squar...
Tahrir Square, Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
12 Oct 2012

Clashes erupted on Friday, October 12, between pro-Muslim Brotherhood supporters and other secularist groups in iconic Tahrir Square, leaving approximately 42 injured, according to Egypt’s Health Ministry.
Protestors threw rocks and Molotov Cocktails at each other.
Several protests with different goals are occupying Tahrir square today.
Liberal and leftists forces have called for a protest dubbed "Accountability Friday" protesting against the poor performance of President Mohamed Morsi, after the end of his first 100-day plan.
On the other hand, the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists groups gathered at Tahrir Square, condemning the acquittal of 24 former regime figures who were accused of involvement in the Battle of the Camel during the January 25 Revolution.
Opponents of the Muslim Brotherhood expressed their rejection of the formation and activities of the Constitution Writing Panel, which is tasked with drafting Egypt’s new constitution after the January 25 Revolution.
They also protest against what they see as President Morsi's failure to fulfill his promises to meet demands of democracy and social justice.
Protestors seek a reformed Constitution Writing Panel that represents all Egyptians, the implementation of a minimum and maximum wage and a reduction in the price of basic commodities.
While on the other hand, Muslim Brotherhood supporters call for retribution for the victims of the revolution and the resignation of the General-Prosecutor.
Fighting has broken out between pro- and anti-Muslim Brotherhood protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square after pro-Brotherhood supporters destroyed the stage of Hamdeen Sabbahi's Popular Current and burnt a banner calling for the reformation of the Constitution writing panel.
