Egypt’s Independent Newspapers Go on ...
Cairo, Egypt
By Video Cairo Sat
04 Dec 2012

Several independent Egyptian newspapers went on strike for one day on Tuesday, December 4, in protest against the constitutional declaration and the draft constitution. Twelve newspapers suspended publication and five TV channels announced that they will go off-air on Wednesday.

Egypt Independent, Al-Masry Al-Youm's English news website, has completely halted work and covered its main page with a statement reading "You are reading this message because Egypt Independent objects to continued restrictions on media liberties, especially after hundreds of Egyptians gave their lives for freedom and dignity."

The newly drafted constitution, which was passed on November 30 by the Islamist-dominated Constituent Assembly and is set to be voted on in a referendum on December 15, does not include articles against the imprisonment of journalists in cases related to freedom of expression as demanded by journalists.

The newspapers that went on strike on Tuesday include: Al-Masry Al-Youm, Al-Watan, Al-Tahrir, Al-Wafd, Al-Youm 7, Al-Dostour, Al-Shorouk, Al-Sabah, Al-Ahaly, Al-Ahrar, Al-Fagr and Osbooa. Among the TV channels that are expected to go strike on Wednesday, with blank screens broadcasting in place of content: ONTV channels, CBC and Modern channels, and Dream TV channels.

The Journalists Syndicate's executive council withdrew its representatives from the constituent assembly in mid-November after its recommendations and suggestions were ignored by the assembly.

Protests in Egypt against President M...
Cairo, Egypt
By Daniel Crossman
24 Aug 2012

Thousands of protesters gathered on Friday, August 24, around the Presidential Palace area in Cairo, protesting against President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The protesters, who included former liberal Parliamentarian Mohamed Abou Hamed, call for an end to the regime of President Morsi, the first freely elected president since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak in February 2011.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Mohie al-Manialawi, retired general and one of the protesters:
“President Mohamed Morsi wants to put the Muslim Brotherhood in all positions. We are the only country in the Middle East, or the world, that has a party based on religion. There are Muslims, Copts and many factions in the country. The President must be a president for all.” SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Mina Fathy, a Copt activist and one of the protesters:
“We demand that Morsi understands now that the Egyptian people don’t want him. We ask him to leave quietly, without suffering what Hosni Mubarak or other presidents suffered. We want him to leave the country to someone who loves it.” The protesters chanted statements against Morsi and the MB, accusing Morsi of being a traitor who wants to monopolize power in Egypt.

However, a lot of Egyptians are against the protests, believing that the President and his government must be given enough time to work and resolve the country’s issues.
SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Essam Abdel-Malek, a citizen against the protest:
“The U.S. President won elections with a very small number of votes, but they all recognized him as president for all Americans. We should learn this. Morsi made democratic decisions such as releasing journalists from temporary detention during trials. We should wait and give a chance to this government to work in order not to interrupt people’s work and interests, so that the country goes on towards development.” The protesters were shouting slogans like "down with the rule of the Brotherhood”, calling for a civil state not a Brotherhood state.
The protesters were mostly supporters of the military, liberals, Copts and activists calling for an end to the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood, claiming that Morsi only represents the MB not all Egyptians.
No violence was reported during the protests.

Al-Azhar and Sunni Scholars Warn Agai...

Cairo, Egypt | May 20, 2012

Egypt's Al-Azhar, widely regarded as the most respected authority for Sunni Muslims worldwide, warned against the practice of Shiite rituals like those referred to as "Hussainiat."

Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayyib, held a meeting with Sunni clerics and scholars including from the Salafists, the Sufis, the Muslim Brotherhood, etc, and announced Al-Azhar's rejection of the practice of Shiite rituals in Sunni-majority Egypt.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Al-Azhar's Grand Imam, Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayyib:
"The honorable Azhar warns against the establishment of any sectarian mosques for a cretin sect or group secluded from the rest of the Muslim nation, causing division and threatening the spiritual and social unity of Egypt and its people, whether these mosques are called Hussainiat – which reveals a sectarian tendency strange to the Sunnis of Egypt - or any name other than 'the house of Allah' or 'the mosque'."

Sunnis make up the overwhelming majority of Egypt's Muslims. Estimates consistently place Sunnis at or above 90% of Egypt's 85-million people, and Shiites at less than 1% of the population.

Following Egypt's January 25 uprising there have been reports of attempts to spread Shiite beliefs in Egypt and an increase in the Shiite rituals called "Hussainiat," in which Shiites gather and beat their faces and bodies, lamenting the death of certain family members of Prophet Muhammad. Though Sunnis also revere family members of Prophet Muhammad, many consider these Shiite practices to be superstitious and deviant.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Sheikh Shiekh Hasan al-Shafi'e, Adviser of Al-Azhar's Grand Imam:
"We do not have suchlike sects or divisions. It is a very dangerous issue and it has grave consequences if it is allowed. So, besieging this leak was the concern of the clerics who attended today."

For his part, renowned Salafi Sheikh Muhammad stressed that the Sunnis of Egypt and worldwide love the family members of Prophet Muhammad yet they reject the Shiite rituals of mourning their deaths, which he said violates the right path in the Quran and the Sunnah (i.e. the Prophet's tradition).

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Salafi cleric Sheikh Muhammad Hassan:
"Al-Azhar was and is still and will still be a guardian of this path; the path of the Quran and the Sunnah (the Prophet's tradition) and the Sunni school. I would like to reaffirm that we all agreed that the people of Egypt love the family of the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad) peace and blessings be upon him, and they seek closeness to Allah through their love."

There are approximately 1.62 billion Muslims in the world according to a 2010 study by Pew Research Center. Most Muslims are Sunnis while the Shiites vary from 150 to 200 million worldwide, i.e. from 10% to 13% of the world Muslim population.

Since the end of the Lebanese civil war in 1990, Lebanon has become a hot bed of both entertainment and news media production in the Arab world. Amongst the melee of risque Arabic music videos and luxury television commercials, the Shia political movement Hezbollah has proved to be one of the most media savvy institutions in the country, using film, television, music, and masterful political stagecraft to further its image in the minds of Lebanese and the international community. From the flashy music videos of Haifa Wehbe to the resistance videos of Hezbollah, this film follows the tumultuous post-civil war history of Lebanon through its fertile media industry.
