Thousands of Egyptian Copts marched from the district of Shubra near downtown Cairo to the state radio and television building, on Tuesday evening, October 9, marking the first anniversary of the Maspero clashes between protesting Copts and army soldiers that resulted in 27 deaths.
The protestors were chanting national songs with music playing in the background, shouting statements against former the Field Marshall who was the head of Egypt’s ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) at that time.
Not only Copts who participated in the march, but a lot of Muslims marched with them to show solidarity with their fellow Egyptians, all calling for retaliation for the victims of Maspero clashes.
During the march, some shouted statements like “The people want execution of the Field Marshall," while others carried banners of Tantawi and his deputy Sami Anan execution ropes around their necks.
They demanded justice for those killed when military and security forces violently dispersed a Coptic sit-in outside the state TV building against assaults on Coptic churches at the time.
The Maspero Youth Union, which was formed in March 2011 to defend the rights of Egypt’s Coptic minority, organized the march while many other movements participated in the march like the April 6 Youth Movement, the Democratic Revolutionary Alliance, Hamdeen Sabbahi’s new Popular Current Part and other coalitions and parties.
The deadly incident occurred when a peaceful march against the destruction of a church in Aswan and the authorities' subsequent inaction was confronted by the military near the building in Maspero, central Cairo, on October 9, 2011, killing at least 27.

Since the attacks, clashes, and ongoing raids in search of suspected gunmen in the Sinai, Egypt closed off the smuggling tunnels and opened up the Rafah border to Gaza on Tuesday, August 14. Many Palestinians from Gaza cross into Egypt seeking medical attention, while pilgrims returning from Mecca are headed home. At the same time, the Egyptian military continues with their campaign to secure the North Sinai region, unearthing "suspected terrorists."

A separate incident near the Al Arish airport occurred when an oil truck exploded, killing the driver and injuring two others.

Upon signing a $200 million USD loan from the World Bank to Egypt, Prime Minister Kandil also revealed that World Bank representatives will arrive the following week to discuss further loans in the amount of $3.2 billion USD. The loans will be directed at economic recovery in Egypt, creating jobs and infrastructure.

Meanwhile, President Morsi is seeing mixed reactions to the dissolution of the Complementary Constitutional Declaration as well as his unexpected decision to replace Tantawi as head of Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. Several who support the decision remain skeptical to the long-term impact while some fear the decisions could be a step toward handing the Muslim Brotherhood more power.

Egyptians Differ on Morsi’s Decision ...
Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
13 Aug 2012

The recent controversial decisions of Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi to retire and replace former head of Egypt’s Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), Mohamed Hussein Tantawi and former Major-General Sami Anan created a debate among Egyptians.

Several revolutionary figures hailed Morsi's Sunday decisions, yet remained skeptical to their potential impact.

The debate also involved military experts and political analysts; especially because Morsi cancelled the SCAF Complementary Constitutional Declaration that used to limit his powers as President.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Talaat Mesallam, retired military general, strategic expert:
“I see that these decisions represent a constitutional coup which cancels the constitutional declaration according to which the president had been elected. The more that he has given to himself unprecedented authority without limits as he will issue the new constitutional declaration.” SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Ahmed Sayyed Ahmed, political analyst, Al-Ahram state-run newspaper:
“These decisions were a chance to finalize the conflict between the military authority and the civil authority for the sake of one authority which is the elected one, to run the country as well as to allow the SCAF to return back to its normal role as protector of the country’s national security. Therefore the decisions were welcomed and widely accepted by several different sectors of the Egyptian society as well as revolutionary forces.”

Morsi appointed Field Marshall Abdel Fattah al-Sisi as SCAF Chief and Defense Minister to replace Tantawi and Judge Mahmoud Mekki as his Vice-President.

Some Egyptians see that Morsi’s decisions were a step on the right track to restore his full powers as the legitimate elected civilian president.

Others believe that Morsi’s decisions are against the constitution and represent a step in the Muslim Brotherhood’s attempts to control the country.

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) - Sayyed Ibrahim, employee:
“As for the decision made by President Mohamed Morsi, I see that it is a bit late too late but it is 100% right because authority cannot be divided between two institutions, the President and the SCAF, so he practiced his legitimate and natural authorities which are recognized in all countries.”

SOUNDBITE 4 (Arabic) - Mohsen Mohamed, lawyer:
“Yesterday he violated the constitution and cancelled the complementary constitutional declaration which is a contrary to his powers. It is not within the authority of the President to cancel the constitutional declaration.”

Morsi said in a speech on Sunday evening that the decisions he made were in the best interest of Egypt and that they were not intended embarrass certain individuals or institutions.

The decisions seem to be broadly welcomed by Islamist, non-Islamist and revolutionary parties.

Thousands of Egyptians attend Militar...

By U.S. Editor
21 Jul 2012

Thousands of Egyptians attended the “brief” military funeral of Egypt’s former vice president Omar Suleiman and longtime spy chief of former ousted regime on Saturday, July 21. In attendance were the head of Egypt’s Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi, PM Kamal al-Ganzouri, as well as representatives of President Mohamed Morsi’s office.

Weeping and screaming were loudly heard at Al-Rashdan Mosque in Nasr City in Cairo while the coffin was brought to the mosque.

The military funeral procession outside the mosque took less than five minutes.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Dr. Hussein Abaza, University professor, relative of Omar Suleiman:
“He was such a patriotic person who loved Egypt and would sacrifice himself for Egypt. He always served the country and was ready to serve it in any situation. He has always been an efficient member of the military institution. Egypt for him was the dearest to his heart.”

Funeral prayers held at the mosque and were attended by several thousand mourners in addition to Egypt's Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa and a delegation from Al-Azhar.

The mosque was heavily secured by military troops.

Supporters of Suleiman gathered outside the mosque, shouting statements against the Muslim Brotherhood as they accused the MB of conspiracy with the United States to murder Suleiman.

On the other hand, supporters of ousted president Hosni Mubarak demanded on their “Pro-Mubarak” Facebook page a quick investigation into the mysterious death of Suleiman and a public announcement of the results.

Suleiman died on Thursday, July 19, at the age of 76 at a hospital in the United States while undergoing medical tests as he suffered from lung disease as well as cardiac problems according to the Egyptian state-run Middle East News Agency (MENA).

It was Suleiman, who announced Mubarak's decision to step down from power in February 2011.

Cairo, Egypt | April 10, 2012

Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti held talks with Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby on Tuesday, April 10, at the League headquarters in Cairo, where they discussed the obstacles of the Middle East peace process and the deteriorating situation in Syria.

Monti told reporters in a joint press conference after the meeting that his visit to Cairo concludes a tour in the region including Lebanon, Israel and the Palestinian territories, stressing that Italy supports the two-state solution for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Italian) – Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti:
"In all these visits I conveyed the Italian vision which is based on a strong belief in the necessity of finding a solution for the Palestinian issue and that the way for that is the two-state solution for the two peoples."

In addition to the Palestinian issue, the talks of Monti and Al-Araby focused on the situation in Syria where they shared views and concerns over the ongoing violence in the country, urging immediate ceasefire.

Monti also voiced his country's support for the mission of the UN-Arab League recent envoy to Syria Kofi Annan.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Arab League Secretary-General Nabil al-Araby:
"We started with talking about Palestine and what is going on there. HE Prime Minister talked about his meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah two days ago. We then moved to talk about the situation in Syria. We exchanged views on what's going on in Syria and that human conscience does not accept the violence and the killing taking place in Syria for more than a year. This must stop."

SOUNDBITE 3 (Italian) – Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti:
"Syria was the focus of our lengthy talk. There is complete agreement between our view and that of the Arab League. In addition, we express our full support of the mission of the special UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan."

The talks also dealt with the situations in Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Egypt, as well as the Iranian nuclear program.

Monti reaffirmed Italy's keenness on cementing the friendly ties with the Arab League, noting that the League's influence in the region grew remarkably in the wake of the Arab Spring events.

Monti arrived in Cairo Monday on a two-day visit and held talks with SCAF Leader Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi and Egypt's Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri.

It is the first time an Italian Prime Minister visits the Arab League in Cairo, Al-Araby told reporters.

Cairo, Egypt | March 15, 2012

Former speaker of the US House of Representatives and US congressional minority leader Nancy Pelosi paid a visit on Thursday, March 15, to Egypt's parliament and held talks with Parliament Speaker and MB leader Mohamed Saad al-Katatni and other parliamentarians.
The two sides discussed Egypt's transitional stage and transformation to democracy and the writing of Egypt new constitution, amid tensions over the recent issue of American NGO workers who allegedly received foreign funds to shake Egypt's stability.
Pelosi commended the meeting as productive and stressed the significance of Egypt to the United States, the region and whole world.
SOUNDBITE 1 (English) - US congressional minority leader Nancy Pelosi:
"We thank them for sharing their views with us on subjects of mutual concern to the national security of both of our countries, the economic growth of Egypt which is important to this region and to the world, and for making progress on behalf of each and every person in Egypt, honoring the hopes that they placed in the revolution and giving them safety and opportunity for the future."

Egyptian parliamentarians who attended the meeting said that they made clear that Egypt does not accept any interference in its domestic affairs.
SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Eng. Saad al-Husseini, parliamentarian and Muslim Brotherhood leader:
"All parliamentarians said clearly that we're for the freedom and strength of NGO's and for giving them a great opportunity for reestablishment. We're preparing a legislation to ensure their strength and flexibility. However, we do not accept foreign politicized funds, which really happened as a means of intervening in our political affairs. I think that they do not accept that in their countries too."

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Essam al-Erian, parliamentarian and Muslim Brotherhood leader:
"We finally agreed that out joint consultations should continue with exchanging visits to discuss details in depth as we both represent two freely elected authorities and we could accomplish a lot of things as representatives of the two peoples."

The meeting came after the US delegation met with head of Egypt's ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, Field Marshall Mohamed Hussein Tantawi.
Observers see that the recurrent US visits to Egypt as attempts to bridge the gap and remove the tension created by the recent NGO issue.

Cairo, January 10, 2012

Outside Mubarak's trial, protesters chant alongside a mother whose son was shot and killed in Alexandria on January 25, 2011. They chant for retribution, saying,

"I hear the martyr's mother say: Tantawi, who is responsible," "I hear the martyr's mother say: the Interior [Minister] killed my son, the army killed my son."

"I swear on your blood..new revolution again. Martyr rest in peace and wait for us at the paradise's gate,
Martyr rest in peace we'll continue struggle."

"Just go tell the Killers: Revenge between us and you for ever. Blood for blood, bullet for bullet, we ask for retribution."
"Retribution, retribution, they killed our brothers by bullet, they gave martyrs as a gift to the sniper."
