End of Hosni Mubaraks' Regime

Chapter three: Hosni Mubarak assassinated!

The protests in Egypt rage all over the country, fueled by the declining economic situation and the political frustration in a country where one president has been governing for 30 years.
All fragments of society participate actively in the constant demonstrations to oust President Hosni Mubarak, including the highly controverted Muslim Brotherhood Party which plays the card of the people’s anger in order to exterminate the ill authoritarian Egyptian regime.

The causalities after one month of protests are quite alarming. 870 wounded civilians are reported in several hospitals, mainly because of the firing of rubber bullets and tear gas grenades by the police and the army. The death toll among civilians reached the 70, while the police forces count 12 case of death and 127 wounded officer.

 In order to prevent the situation from getting more instable, the government issues an order for all the population through the national Medias to stay at home and keep away from any kind of protests, otherwise they could face imprisonment. Curfew is announced until Saturday morning, and the president himself orders it since he is the supreme commander of the army.

Prosecuting Arab "Leaders"?

Prosecuting the Arab leaders?

The Tunisian Court of Justice issued an international arrest warrant against the former Tunisian dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, currently hiding in Saudi Arabia in the traitors’ land, as well as his wife Leila Trabelsi, the sadly famous authoritarian woman number one in Tunisia who gave the Tunisian people a last surprise before escaping: a theft of 1.5 ton of gold from the central bank!

The charges against the evil couple vary from illicit transfers of currency abroad to illegal acquisition of properties, without mentioning the horrid crimes committed against the Tunisian people who had to suffer killings, illegal detention and lack of religious freedom.
The Tunisian nation has been teaching us for a month how to proceed in order to swipe away dictatorship and oppression, and as if that wasn’t enough, they even showed the world how to give example by bringing the terror to its right place: prison.

Now, the main question is not if the Tunisian presidential couple is going to be prosecuted, but are the Arab people able to understand the lesson and bring corrupted officials to justice?

Western Sahara under fire!

Chapter two: Western Sahara under fire

The situation in Algeria cannot be worse. In less than 24 hours after the attack on the Blida military base, suicide bombings and ambushes against the stationed troops in the major cities grow in intensity, bringing the total number of deaths to 264, this causalities having mainly occurred in the military rank.

An urgent general meeting is held in the Department of Counter-Espionage and Internal Security to study the ultimatum issued by the Security Council. The general Toufik Elamrani, main player in the Algerian stage since the fall of Bouteflika, comes up with an ambitious and dangerous plan.

The story of the Arab revolution

After the Tunisian regime fell down, leaving the country in a total chaos and triggering a wave of protests through the whole Arab world, from Mauritania to Kuwait passing by Egypt and Algeria, it seems that a great change is approaching, taking the people from the dark ages of Arab repression and authoritarian rule to a new world order based on true and right concepts which have for main purpose the service of the people by the people.

Western Sahara : Is it a part of Morocco and end of the story?

Western Sahara issue was and is still a main problem in both the international scene and the national affairs of Morocco, a problem to be solved, yet nobody knows how to approach this complex historical, social, geographical  and economical concern with enough competence and professionalism.

A lot is to win or to lose in this case, from the phosphorus resources to the fisheries in the Atlantic, passing by the numerous interests in the region especially the strategic geopolitical ones, without even mentioning the highly instable situation in the southern part of the Sahara where several “terroristic” cells operate freely; everything combines to make from the Western Sahara an urgent concern for not only Spain, Algeria, Morocco and the Polisario, but for the whole community, a concern which need immediate settlement and prior importance.
An issue like this cannot be ignored under the current flow of events taking place all over the world and which pushes toward a global intervention in internal affairs as part of the new world cooperative relations which involve the international community as a whole in discussions and decision making.

Jasmin Revolution

In memory of the martyrs

The news struck like lightening. When everybody thought the protests which started one month ago to be an ephemeral wave, we witness nowadays how wrong were we by underestimating Tunisian people’s will.
Tunisia maybe has seen the birth of a new political and social era where the power cannot be considered outside the cadre of people’s interest. What started with a suicide attempt by the now famous torch man has developed to unprecedented events burning not only Tunisia, but the neighboring countries as well.
From Algeria to Jordan, passing through Egypt, restless people are protesting everyday against the long established and deeply rooted corruption which has infiltrated highly ranked officials’ brains, making from them ruthless beasts tearing people’s salaries apart and drowning the small remaining glimpse of hope of an entire nation in the dark seas of poverty.
