Politics II

Well I was not going to write more about politics but to be honest I needed to tell you what happened in the elections. After a very very long speech they announced the new president Dr Mohamed Morsi.

So in that account all Egypt seems to be pretty happy about it. Today they are thousands of people in Tahrir Square with the President celebrating. He declare three things and those were.

1. He was not going to live in the President House he was staying at his home and when going to work he will go to the Presidential House or Office.
2. He was  going to drive in traffic like anyone else with no escort or stopping traffic from one place to another.
3. His picture was not going to be in the buildings or in any government or official document.

So when my habibi told me this were the three things he promised first off I was shocked but at the same time seriously this is nothing! Lets see what happens when he has to be somewhere and he is stuck in traffic I want to bet he will be definetely calling some escort! Like seriously the President was late because he was stuck in traffic!! Hilarious if you tell me. Hey ,why not? it happens to rest of us, right? LOL

One particular thing this candidate has and that people absolutely love about him is that he is declaring a lot of things by the Islamic religion and the Qu'ran. Some people are scared that he is going to Islamize the country with extreme religious things, and in all honesty that is totally bullshit.

He needs to get rid of a lot of red tape and deal with the military council that doesn't want to give him full power before he can do anything else. So people please stop being stupid he cannot do this it will be against even the laws of the Islam by obligating people into things and to impose when we are in an Egypt that is in complete evolution.

He even stated that he is the President of all Egyptians not just the Islamic group. If you people are smart you will understand that people specially politicians will use whatever they can to their advantage in this case religion. This is one of the reasons am wary about him but will see what happens at the end. In today's speech at Tahrir he told people that he would work to free all political prisoners he also showed people that he was not wearing a bulletproof vest as was accustomed by the other president and he even wave security away so he could say hi to the people. His first defiant act was taking the oath in the square! He was supposed to take it tomorrow so good for him!

Right now people are happy and with hopes of new things to come. We are also a few days to Ramadan which from what am hearing is a great month in Egypt. So if you want to visit I think is the best time to do it! So people get your bags together and come and enjoy with all Egyptians the feeling of hope and new beginnings for this beautiful country.

It's been a while since I wrote on the blog and I sincerely apologize for the delay is been very hectic for me but I decided that after all that is happening now in Egypt I deserve to give space to something that is very important to all Egyptian people and that is the result of the elections.

Since the revolution Egyptian people want to be free from the military government and for the first time the people had a right to choose their president. There is a lot of speculation about the parties that are competing against each other and what good will it do if one of them wins.

I to be honest believe there is been a lot of manipulation on this process because if the people ask for new leaders that had nothing to do with the Mubarak regimen then I do not understand how can we have a contender in the elections that worked for Mubarak and that is clearly in the same set of mind as the individual people want to see dead.

On the other hand you have the Muslim Brotherhood who are saying that they are in every intention doing God's will and to be honest I just don't trust people who mix politics and religion because they are not the same. Today we are minutes to finding out who of these two candidates will be the new president and to be honest I just hope that none of them wins!

Egypt deserves to be free to enjoy democracy and to be able to live without the fear of being oppressed by the military. I sincerely hope that God has mercy on the Egyptian people and whatever happens today is for the good of this beautiful country.

I am usually an apolitical person but since all Egypt is in tension and waiting for what is going to happen I think I can reserve a post for this matter and don't be surprised if the people are not happy with the results they will definitely  protest again. And why not? They have the right to protest. Egyptian people discover something since the revolution and that is that united they have the power to change the situation.

Its sad all the people that lost their life because of this but they are remembered and well people are still fighting for freedom and I support them all the way. Now for those of you who think that because the people are doing demonstrations and protesting is not safe to come and visit, your wrong.

Not because a country is in a phase of transition its a bad place. Now places who are not suitable for traveling is Syria! If you have a heart pray for Syrian people they really are in a bad situation.

I think is safe to say that is the end of this post. Until next time, I have a lot of funny experiences I need to share with you and of course one of the most important holidays is coming Ramadan and believe me I am hearing great things about it.
