Cairo October 1st 2013: In comparison to the past year of darkness which we collectively endured under a fascist regime which showed no interest in Egypt’s best interest or that of its people, today I have never felt more alive, invigorated, optimistic, and more proud to be an Egyptian.
While the world around us is coming to terms with the reality of what is taking place in Egypt, there are still those few who in their arrogance and ignorance are still insisting on twisting the truth.
If would allow me to share with you a thought – A phone call actually I received from a friend of mine on the 4th of July 2013.
JULY 4, 1776
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
July 3rd 2013
When our government became destructive, the people of Egypt exercised their rights to abolish such a government and have instituted a new government and today are laying its foundations on real Egyptian principles and organizing its power in such a form which shall seem most likely to effect our safety and happiness.
We can no longer accept the double standards of those who claim to be guardians of democracy across the globe. For more than 3000 years the pyramids have stood tall as a symbol of Egypt’s glory, yet still there are those that insist that the Pyramids where built by aliens.
Just to clarify…. Egyptians built the pyramids 3000 years ago, and it was the same Egyptians who brought down the rule of an international terrorist organization on July 3rd 2013.
So make as many false claims as you want. But the reality is today the people of Egypt are now writing their own future, a future that will not be dictated to us those whose knowledge of Egypt is derived from the discovery channel and tom and jerry Cartoons.
