Article summary: 

Dr. Amīn Makram ‘Ubayd introduces himself to readers of AWR, wanting to dedicate his efforts “towards a mission of progress energized by a will to see obscurantism defeated, fanaticism vanquished and poverty conquered.” “Writing,” Dr. ‘Ubayd writes, “associated with a fair degree of research, put me on the way to find a mean to reconcile the apparently irreconcilable, socio- religious views that are the basis of the Egyptian social and cultural malaise” who firmly believes “that there could never be an improvement of the social scene, or a cure for its malaise, unless and if, its causes are courageously and objectively addressed.” AWR is extremely pleased Dr. Amīn Makram ‘Ubayd joined our board of advisors.

Hani Labeeb

wrote to al-Usboa criticizing the reaction of some Coptic religious men towards the serial "Awan al-

Ward,"

as being extremist. Two articles in al-Ahram praised the series, confirming that there is love between

Muslims and Christians. The writer of the serial told al-Raya al-Masri that after the criticism and angry

reactions

of Christians he would not write about Copts anymore. In al-Akhbar, Kamal Musa was surprised by

the fact that some

writers criticized Christians for being so angry, telling them they should be happy

about being considered, after

being marginalized for so long. Aqidaty listed the opinions of different

people about the serial.

Article summary: 

The

author criticizes an article that

appeared previously in el-Shaab which "attacked Copts without any reason,

and accused them of being

mercenaries, agents for the C.I.A." and "traitors." But, says the author, Jews created

this issue. Copts

abroad become panic-stricken because of the exaggerated news by foreign news agencies. At the

same time the

authorities inside and outside Egypt do nothing to make them feel at ease concerning their families

in

Egypt. Furthermore there is hardly any communication between the Egyptian government and millions of Egyptians

abroad.

Subtitle:
The

case is closed and the murderer is

known
In the past three months three Egyptians have been killed in

Europe. The third was a businessman in

Holland. "The case is closed and the murderer is known" is the

conclusion of the author. Overseas authorities do

not care for the death of an Egyptian, nor do the Egyptian

authorities, says the brother of the dead man who told

the paper the details of what happened. "How long

will it take us to gain respect in the eyes of others?" he

asked.
