Summary
Article summary: 

Over the past decade, the lives of hundreds of Egyptians families were turned into nightmares when they lost all their savings in pyramid schemes. Disguising under the slogan of "Islam-oriented business", those companies swindled Egyptians at home or expatriates working in the wealthy Gulf Arab states out of billions of Egyptian pounds or dollars. They lured their victims with very high annual interest rates, sometimes twice the average rates offered by the banks.

Summary
Article summary: 

It is not easy to defy the head of the Coptic Orthodox Church, His Holiness Pope Shenouda III - and get away with it - as the family of one dead clergyman has learned. No one - including some of the pope’s most reliable allies - had anticipated the kind of revenge Pope Shenouda had arranged for Father Ibrahim Abdel Said, the former parish priest of the Mar Girgis Church in Maadi, until his tragic death on August 30.

Cornelis Hulsman
Summary
Article summary: 

Hulsman asked three Evangelical pastors in Egypt to comment on the two Rose el-Yousef articles. These pastors are certainly not happy with the publications in Rose el-Yousef. Their criticism, however, focuses on the tensions between churches in Egypt and para-Christian organizations, the consequences of Western missionary work in Egypt which lashes back at local Christians as a boomerang and efforts to discredit missionaries by accusing them of links with the CIA and Zionist (friendly) organizations.

Summary
Article summary: 

Human Rights Organizations have the lion’s share in spreading rumors and lies abroad and, in this way, support extremism. The game is to cry about the lost democracy and freedom and put terrorism in the shape of human rights. They have found their target in trying to abolish the emergency law which is seen as the main tool to combat extremism.
