One has to be careful with the news coming from Egypt. The Egyptians are famous in the Arab world for acting, lying and deception. This time it appears that they are trying to manufacture " Egyptian public pressure on Al-Sisi to force the international community to recognize that The Nile water belongs to Egypt alone. "
“Do it, boss.” The former editor-in-chief of Al-Ahram calls on Sisi to step down and holds him responsible for wasting Egypt’s historic right to the Nile.. Others are calling for demonstrations to authorize and support the president.. Communication sites are on fire.
Cairo - “Today’s Opinion” - Mahmoud Al-Qaei:
“Do it, President.” An article by journalist Abdel Nasser Salama, former editor-in-chief of Al-Ahram, threw a big stone at the Nile water file, and sparked widespread controversy on social networking sites in Egypt.
Salameh began his article by asking: Why does President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi not have the moral and moral courage, and declare his direct responsibility for the heavy defeat against Ethiopia, and for wasting Egypt’s historic right to the Nile, when he granted legitimacy to the dam, the subject of the crisis, by signing the disastrous 2015 agreement, (and he was aware of the consequences of what he was doing). ), then when he gave him legitimacy again by resorting to the Security Council without good preparation, and before that when he overlooked the start of construction, and then when he was unable to take a military decision to restore the conspiring Ethiopian leadership to its senses, and also when he failed to rally international support for a just cause, despite Spending billions of dollars buying arms and changing arms from influential countries.
Safety added that
Honesty and courage require the president to come out to the people by announcing his abdication from power and presenting himself to a fair trial for all that his hands committed, ceding the Red Sea islands, the Mediterranean gas fields, and the Nile waters, wasting Egypt’s wealth on useless armaments, and tying the country down. With exorbitant debts that you will never be able to repay, spreading a state of terror and fear among the Egyptians by threatening them to deploy the army within 6 hours, dividing society sectarianly, functionally and categorically by creating an unprecedented situation of polarization, imprisoning and arresting tens of thousands with justification and without justification, and turning Sinai into a cemetery for our soldiers and officers as a result of a very bad administration A crisis that could not have been, not to mention dozens of accusations that will unfold in due course.
Salama continued, addressing President Sisi:
“I wish you, Mr. President, were convinced early on of the painful truth revealed by the Security Council session, which is that we would not support you in the world, and this has never been in Egypt throughout its ancient and modern history together, and the reasons are well known.
Do it and step aside, Mr. President, in order to save Egypt, if you are really Egyptian. It is the only good thing that the world will remember for you and erase from their memory the charge of coup that troubles you and which was the cause of most of the foreign concessions. Do it so that the armed forces have the freedom to act before it is too late, and you will find These forces provide unprecedented support from all groups of the people if they do what is necessary, bearing in mind that there is no legitimacy for anyone who did not defend the Nile.”
Salameh continued: “It is sufficient that the Egyptian nation witnessed, as the whole world witnessed, that the President of Egypt was riding a bicycle to take a walk in the new city of El Alamein, in conjunction with the Security Council session, which was discussing the existential issue of Egypt, in great disregard for a people, who were following the events live. directly on television screens, with feelings of anger and sadness over the fate of their children and offspring, from dealing with sewage waste in food and drink, and even ablution.”
He said that he would rule out conspiracy theory, betrayal, employment, and everything that is currently on the street, noting that he only hopes that the president can prove that the issue was just a miscalculation as a result of the individual's judgment and singling out the decision, then there will not be the maximum punishment, although I Personally, I doubt that.
Salama concluded his article, which he posted on Facebook, saying, “Do it and depart immediately without wasting any more time, and if it is not for the sake of Egypt, then for you, I repeat: for you, because the operations of absenteeism and deception have never stood in all the dictatorships that the world has gone through. It must be eroded little by little, even if it lasts for a long time, with failed battalions and electronic committees, and domination of a miserable media.”
Salama’s article “The Bomb” sparked a wide debate among his followers, who praised him, pitying him to be thrown into prison.
Journalist Osama Kamel, head of the Young Egypt Party, commented on Salama's article by saying that:
The 2015 agreement that the Ethiopian side adheres to is not binding; Because it was not presented to Parliament in accordance with the Constitution.
In the same context, Ismail Al-Fakhrani described Salameh's article as clear clarity, unparalleled courage, extreme honesty and high patriotism.
Al-Fakharani addressed Salama, saying: "I count what I wrote for God, then for the homeland, for history, and for the honor of the profession."
Invitations to delegate the president
In the context of the Ethiopian dam crisis, Ambassador Farghali Taha said that in light of all this we have been waiting and we are still hoping that our country and our leaders will come up with the final and only solution imposed on us by our mistakes before our enemies.
Farghali added that instead, we see shameful, scandalous, backward calls to hold partisan demonstrations in the stadium or elsewhere to give the president and the responsible authority to defend Egypt's rights..!
What are we doing to add to our scandal and humiliation so much? Do the president and those responsible for him need a mandate to carry out their duty towards the country and the citizen?
He said that the mandate is granted by laws and constitutions, and I granted it and more than it. Otherwise, is everything that the leadership and the government have been doing for years without authorization? ..
He continued, “Accordingly, the signing of the Declaration of Principles with Ethiopia took place without authorization, all the years of absurd negotiations without authorization, all arms purchases without authorization, and the Tiran and Sanafir Agreement without authorization, as well as gas agreements with Greece, Cyprus and Israel without authorization. !”.
Ambassador Taha continued by asking:
“Why does only bridging the ruin after misfortune have occurred needs to be delegated? And just as peace, negotiation and signing were a functional duty in which neither the people nor Parliament were consulted, so too if war is a job and a constitutional duty that does not require partisan demonstrations, banners of support, and a meaningless wedding.. Did you not tell us that war is a secret, a trick, a tactic and everything? Is his account valid?! .”
He concluded by saying: “Does the president accept what is happening, does he consider it necessary for him, and does he consider it worthy of Egypt and its president?! .” By God, what we see adds to shame, in fact, we walk away from it, and it adds to our disappointment, increases our oppression, and returns Egypt for miles and years.”
The international community!!
For his part, said Dr. Ismail Sabry Makled Professor of Political Science and International Relations
He is very surprised that senior official officials have come to demand the international community to assume its responsibilities regarding finding a solution to the Ethiopian dam crisis after this crisis was removed from the agenda of the Security Council, and it is no longer on its list of concerns and priorities because it is not convinced that it constitutes a real threat to international peace and security as contained in The Charter of the United Nations and calls for the Council's intervention in it through the procedures, measures and decisions stipulated in the Charter.
Makled added that the question raised by those official appeals, which began to echo and echo in the capitals of some of the countries party to this crisis, for the international community to intervene to solve it with decisive decisions, is: Who is this international community that has the authority to intervene immediately to save the situation from sliding towards Further escalation and deterioration, and playing a pivotal role as an alternative to the Security Council in managing the file of the crisis of this dam in order to reach a peaceful, consensual and acceptable solution to it?
Makled continued: “And if the five permanent members who move the whole world and push it in any direction they want, and hold in their hands the keys to all regional and international conflicts and crises, and know their most minute details and secrets, and are present in all its corridors and scenes, they have removed their hands from this file, and evaded their role. In it, and entrusted his order to the African Union, which reached the end of a dead end of the crisis by freezing it and removing it from its list of priorities as a potential threat to peace and security in Africa, and stopping it from making more diplomatic efforts to push it on the path of settlement and solution. Will the illusory being called bypassing the international community succeed in Achieving what all of these failed to do, though. What are the powers and responsibilities assigned to them by international conventions? .
He said that the international community, upon which these senior officials attach great hope for a solution to the Ethiopian dam crisis, may pay special attention to environmental issues such as global warming, climate changes, melting and melting icebergs, pollution, degradation, environmental destruction, imbalance, desertification, drought, depletion of natural and economic resources, as well as human rights violations. Poverty, global epidemics, illegal immigration and terrorism, the problems of refugees crossing the national borders of countries, and other pressing and urgent humanitarian problems and crises that require the cooperation of the entire international community to solve and overcome them, but he does not concern himself with the problem of a water dam being built on a common international river here or there ..and it is a problem that he considers technical and does not mean only its immediate owners who are responsible for managing it and solving it themselves for themselves, away from the interference of the international community in it.
He said that this is not an advanced international priority that deserves to be concerned about or waste the time of the international community in it, because there are other global problems that deserve this attention and concern over them.
Makled concluded that in response to all the above reservations and observations, the international community will not move one step to manage the file of the Ethiopian dam, contrary to what these senior officials expect, for no reason other than because it is completely absent from the picture and has no role in it, no matter how long we wait for it.
He said that previous international experiences testify and speak, noting that continuing to pin hope on the international community to find an acceptable solution to this crisis, whose episodes have narrowed and complicated, means continuing to spin in the same vicious circle without end or result.. and this is what we must be convinced of for ourselves. So that we do not continue to run behind a deceptive mirage that has nothing to do with the crisis in which we plunged into its vortex, and from which it was difficult to solve and get out with a satisfactory result.
Makled concluded, saying: "We have to search for ourselves through a path other than the path of the international community: the path in which we may find the desired solution to our problem with this cursed dam, and by that I mean the solution that preserves our undisputed right to life, or rather our right to existence and survival... It is a right that is protected and its legitimacy is affirmed by all international conventions, laws and norms.”
After asking Sisi to step down, the former Al-Ahram editor-in-chief Abdel Nasser Salama got arrested.
