Understanding the Enigma of the Egyptian Left - Hesham Sallam
‘Although the Egyptian street has always seemed to favor the emergence of left-wing power, this political current has been losing the battle to the Islamists and to the government for several decades now. This is due to a lack of autonomy … as well as a tendency to emphasize “identity” debates to the detriment of socio-economic problems.’

Rashid Al Khaldi highlighted the intentions of both Israel and the United States to forcibly relocate a significant number of Gazans to Egypt. This assertion was based on evidence from a budget request presented to Congress on October 20th, where provisions for relocating individuals from Gaza were outlined by the United States government.

The research might not just unlock the secrets of the pyramids but it could also uncover parts of ancient Egypt that have long been lost as towns disappeared when the Nile naturally migrated.

jfyi, I am pondering ideas for a new game with 3d gfx, but that might take a while, but nice comments are very motivating!
There is so much to read, isn't there?
I would particularly like to read more of and about Mohammed Heikal. The birth, life and death of Panarabism interests me, and I have a feeling that reading Heikal would give me a better understanding of that topic.

ℹ️ Update: Metrics show that internet connectivity has been largely restored in #Egypt following a ~7 hour long disruption this morning; the incident is attributed to a technical malfunction affecting one of the main network devices, not a submarine cable cut, per Telecom Egypt
The #Ontario man said his 13 yr old daughter & 9 yr old son - #CanadianCitizens - were placed on list of foreigners allowed to leave the territory through Rafah crossing with #Egypt more than 2 weeks ago but his #Palestinian wife wasn't.
"Unfortunately, despite continued advocacy, #Canada does not make the final determination of who gets approved by local authorities to cross the #Rafah border," #GlobalAffairs wrote to him in an email.
For almost 5 hours there has been a major internet outage in #Egypt. DSL is either very unstable or not working across greater #Cairo. Fortunately, 4G is working fine. WE, the national telecom published a vague statement saying it was caused by a malfunctioning central networking device and they are working on fixing it.
⚠️ Confirmed: Metrics show a significant disruption to internet connectivity in #Egypt attributed to an incident on the FEA and SEA-ME-WE 4 subsea cable networks, with national connectivity currently at 64% of ordinary levels 📉

A 3,400 year-old ancient Egyptian paint box containing its original pigments.
The preserved cake pigments are red (red ochre), blue (Egyptian blue), green (a mixture of Egyptian blue, yellow ochre, and orpiment) and two of black (carbon black, from charcoal).
An inscription on the wooden paint box tells us it belonged to Amenemope, who was Vizier during the reign of king Amenhotep II.

The medical charity Médecins Sans Frontières (#MSF) said a clinic it operated in Gaza City was attacked on Monday morning. Part of the building was engulfed in flames, it said, and four marked MSF cars were burned while a fifth was found crushed by a heavy vehicle or a tank. The charity said it was not immediately aware of the status of one member of staff and 20 family members.
Twenty-eight premature babies were rescued from al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City and taken to #Egypt on Monday. The head of the World Health Organization (#WHO) said 31 “very sick” babies were moved from #alShifa hospital in a joint operation with the #UN and the #Palestinian Red Crescent Society, and 12 of them had been flown to Cairo. Three babies remain in #Gaza.
EU Chief Discusses Gaza Humanitarian Crisis In Egypt
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Saturday said she was opposed to the "forced displacement of Palestinians" during a meeting in Cairo with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
Today in Labor History November 12, 1956: In the midst of the Suez Crisis, over 100 Palestinian refugees were killed in Rafah by Israel Defense Forces after they invaded the Gaza Strip. Israel has neither denied nor acknowledged wrongdoing. Palestinians maintain that all resistance had ceased when the killings took place. Dozens of summary executions of Palestinian prisoners occurred, and up to 1,200 civilians were killed by the IDF in this four-month period of Israeli rule. The Suez Crisis began when Israel, followed by France and the UK, invaded Egypt and the Gaza Strip, in order to depose Gamal Nasser, and regain control over the Suez Canal, which Nasser had nationalized. Nasser was a leading figure in the secular, anti-imperialist, pan-Arabist movements of the day.
I see nothing on your time about Armenians, Uighurs, and others facing exterminations.

EU throws weight behind Cypriot plan to ship aid to Gaza
The plan is to allow Gazans access to big volumes of aid carried by ship, rather than just the small quantities brought by truck from Egypt.
⬆️ In this #FogOfWar, it is hard to tell if the reason #Israel sent 1000s of #Palestinians held at border crossing BACK to #Gaza, instead of just letting them leave was that #Hamas tried to smuggle #terrorists among #Gaza civilians
Not clear if they were the same crossing

"Cairo’s intransigence on Palestinian refugees has irked the United States, which had hoped it could use the $1.3 billion it gives to Egypt in annual military as leverage to influence the Egyptian leadership. However, the stakes of acquiescing to US and Israeli desires are high for Cairo."
Every morning #CBCRadio news has been talking about Canadian citizens in the Gaza Strip, telling us that they aren't being permitted to leave.
Permitted by whom? Egypt, Israel, Hamas or some other power?
#CBC should not be reporting this story and leaving that key point out.
Today in Labor History Nov 2, 1956: Israel invaded Egypt, followed by Britain and France, during the Suez Crisis. The goal was to regain control of the economically important Suez Canal by western powers, and to overthrow Egyptian leader Nassar, who had nationalized the canal. During the crisis, Israel occupied the Gaza Strip. The conflict resulted in 172 Israeli deaths and up to 4,000 Arab deaths, including 1,000 civilians.
"#Israel announced in June 2023 that it had begun cooperation with #Egypt and the #PalestinianAuthority to develop the #GazaMarine field discovered 30 km off #Gaza (..) The field will be developed by state-owned Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company which will hold a 45 percent stake in it; some 2 bcm/year will be piped into the Egyptian gas network for domestic consumption and export, including to Palestine. The Palestinian Authority will share in the profits"
