Egyptian Chronicles: The big surprises are starting from now

The big surprises are starting from now

Do you remember this rumour that said that there would be a very big surprise in the next annual NDP conference ??

Now some of us expected that the big surprise will not be other than the retirement of the big man from the party leadership leaving it to his son Gamal.

This is well known scenario we all know that it is going happen sooner before later. We do not know when but surely it will not happen after 2010. It is well known that to reach this ,there are some signal or events that will proceed,some of them already took place from constitutional amendments , clearing the scene from oppositions icons and most of all making the people accept the transitional or inheritance operation.

You all know that Egyptians do not like nor want GM.

How can you make GM popular ?? Make him inaugurate projects  dedicated to the poor classes , the same class his father regime neglected for two decades and his businessmen corrupted friends harm everyday .Still this is not enough I am afraid .

His businessmen policies committee are too rotten and people dislike them all and no one can deny that most of his businessmen committee used their positions to the extreme for their interests and the examples are too many , it is enough to mention the names of Ahmed Ezz and Mamdouh Ismail.

If you remember what happened in Syria when Basher inherited the presidency from his father ,you may understand what I am talking about.

Ladies and gentlemen , Gamal Mubarak may not have joined the army like Basher but he is his following his footsteps , I remember very well there was a huge witch hunt against the corruption icons in the Syrian Baath party including those who served the father for decades.It was like a false promise to the people that Bashar would fight corruption in his government.

Gamal Mubarak and his men know very well the price of people acceptance will include sacrificing some of his friends from businessmen.

Forget about Mamdouh Ismail but look to the following names : Hisham Talaat Mustafa and Mohamed Farid Khamis.

Khamis now is innocent from the charges the newspapers were speaking about in the weekend but look to the level of the noise that was in the newspapers ,Al Ahram first print was speaking about his interrogation before releasing another statement denying these charges in a clear message to the public that no one above the law even those untouchable in the policies committee with MP immunity .

Now to the big TV soap opera of Ramadan : Hisham and Suzanne.

Ahmed Moussa ,Amr Adeeb, Abd Allah Kamel and Karm Gabr who are from the official speakers on behalf of the regime have nothing to say over and over to their readers and viewers in their media outlets that what happened to Hisham is a lesson to all businessmen and that the NDP will not protect them from the law and this is a law state !!

Many people are saying that Hisham was the scapegoat of the NDP and that the decision of his arrest was like a Sacrifice in order to save the dignity of the NDP in front of the world especially the UAE !!

Some believe that the decision of Hisham’s arrest came from the Presidential palace. There are rumours that Habib Al-Adly, the minister of interior himself had to hear Mohsen El-Sokary’s confession by his own ears twice before informing Zechariah Azami and Mubarak . There are other rumours saying that there was a huge diplomatic pressure from the UAE thanks to Prince Mohamed Ibn Maktom,some are saying that the Prince does not want that his prefect city of Dubai to be a crime heaven while other are saying that Prince invited the singer himself to the city with a promise of protection and now after the crime he feels that he was insulted.

Many writers like Ibrahim Eissa are speaking that Hisham was the weakest link in the committee and that Mubarak’s admiration with his work could not help him at all.

May be Hisham was a real surprise for the NDP, they did not know that he is going to hire El-Sokary to kill Tamim in Dubai but they know how to use it to their advantage at least this is how they think , I do not think any difference. People still hate them.

You know sometimes I expect that the big surprise will be the head of Ahmed Ezz , this would be the big ultimate sacrifice.

  1. Zeinobia's Lesson in English Grammar Number 2

    Hello Kiddies,

    We're back with yet another grammar lesson for our not-so-favourite blogger, Zeinobia. In case you missed the first lesson - we've decided, in all our charitable wisdom, to start giving her grammar lessons absolutely free of charge. So far, we haven't seen any results but to be fair she has only had one lesson.

    So let's jump right into Lesson Number 2

    The first paragraph was almost perfect except - once again - the space bar seems to have been a source of confusion. There should be no space before the question mark. And honestly Zeinobia, one question mark will suffice. You don't need to put two for your readers to understand that you're asking a question. We get it. This also goes for "How can you make GM popular ??" It also applies to exclamation marks: "and that the NDP will not protect them from the law and this is a law state !!" and "like a Sacrifice in order to save the dignity of the NDP in front of the world especially the UAE !!"

    We get that when you're excited your exclamation marks and question marks seem to go flying all over the place but all that does is put an image in our mind of a giddy 13 year old who can't contain her excitement over the fact that her favourite boy band just released a new album.

    On to the next paragraph: "Now some of us expected that the big surprise will not be other than the retirement of the big man." The mistake here is quite obvious - 'not be other than...' Tsk tsk Zeinobia. The expression is "none other than." I know English is a confusing language so in the future, if you aren't certain how an expression should be used - don't use it.

    You really have something against the word "a" don't you? "This is well known scenario" should be "This is a well known scenario"

    Skipping forward a bit, let's take a look at this gem of a paragraph: "Make him inaugurate projects dedicated to the poor classes , the same class his father regime neglected for two decades and his businessmen corrupted friends harm everyday .Still this is not enough I am afraid ."

    The first obvious, and repeated lesson, is the space bar's relation to your punctuation Zeinobia. Honestly honey, did you even read the last lesson I so painstakingly wrote up for you? The next problem is "his father regime" should be "his father's regime." Third problem, "his businessmen corrupted friends" - this is another example of how you don't seem to be sure about the correct order of words. It should be "his corrupted businessmen friends" - the adjective comes before the noun sweetie. You do know what nouns and adjectives are right?

    Now for someone who is supposedly so interested into politics, I have to say I find it amusing that you can't spell the name of the Syrian president correctly. It's Bashar not Basher. What confuses me is that in one instance in your post, you actually spell it correctly. So why, oh why, couldn't you get it right all those other times? I have a feeling we have a lazy student on our hands.

    Now when you talk about Bashar and Gamal, it should be "he is following in his footsteps" not "he is his following his footsteps" - although I do have to thank you for the hilarious visual that leaves us with.

    Now for a total doozy: "Gamal Mubarak and his men know very well the price of people acceptance will include sacrificing some of his friends from businessmen." That should have been "Gamal Mubarak and his men know full well the price of people's acceptance will include the sacrifice of some of his businessmen friends." Honestly sweetheart, I'm not so sure I can be bothered to explain to you why you're wrong and I'm right.

    "Khamis now is innocent from the charges the newspapers were speaking about in the weekend"- You really like the word "now" don't you. I can tell by how you tend to start SO many sentences with it. The problem with this sentence is that you actually should have dropped your favourite word, and said something more like "Khamis has been cleared from the charges the newspapers were writing about this weekend." Yes it may come as a surprise to you but newspapers don't speak. And the same goes for "Many writers like Ibrahim Eissa are speaking that..." No sweetie. They are writers so what are they doing? They are... Writing! Well done!

    Now maybe you could help me out with the next problem: "this is a law state !!" What exactly were you going for here? Are there any states without laws? I really have no idea what you were trying to say but if you could explain it, I would be more than happy to tell you what the correct expression is.

    "There are rumours that Habib Al-Adly, the minister of interior himself had to hear Mohsen El-Sokary’s confession by his own ears twice" Ok Zeinobia here is something you might not know. People don't hear by their ears, they hear with them. And just a little grammatical note, Minister of Interior should be capitalized.

    Now we've already established that you don't like the word "a" - so why is it that you don't use it where you should, and then go and use it where you shouldn't "There are other rumours saying that there was a huge diplomatic pressure from the UAE thanks to Prince Mohamed Ibn Maktom" Drop the "a" in that sentence. And while we're at it, we should probably change the word "huge" as it just sounds silly. Maybe you could have said "there was significant diplomatic pressure" - how does that sound?

    Oh here's another cute one that made me giggle: "some are saying that the Prince does not want that his prefect city of Dubai to be a crime heaven." You're just so funny Zizi! Ok first - prefect should be perfect. Now would be yet another good time to run over to dictionary.com and look up the difference. (I hope you have dictionary.com bookmarked by now). Another cute little mistake here is the use of the word "that." After you've dropped "that," you should also change "be" to "become" and if I were you (but thank God I'm not) I wouldn't use an expression like "crime heaven."

    And the last little lesson for the day. "May be" is one word.

    I really can't be bothered with that last paragraph. It's just too convoluted for my taste.

    That's all for today kiddies

  2. That was a great commentary article from you Zein. you did it great, I agree with most of what you putted up here.

    But who knows if that sacrifices are for the sake of GM being prepared for the presidency or even to be the chairman of the NDP, I don't think that he will gain neither this nor that!

    It's all about a bad stupid experienced Age that seems know nothing about what is going on in the country, and the scapegoats are here only to act like scapegoats when there is a need, it's about days on the chair and a nation on a brink!

    I'm still believe that the END scenario for this country won't be that ordinary scenario of inheritance and brothers in Syria, we have another thing that kept for us and we know nothing about!

    In the end. we have to wait for the "big" surprise in the coming NDP conference.

  3. @anonymous#2 , thanks for lesson no.2 ,I am sure that my dear readers are enjoying it just like me

    @Ghafari , Jihad El-Khazan once said in his column at Hayat newspaper Egypt is not Syria nor the Syrians are like Egyptians with my all respect to dear Syrians whom I really love, I share the same opinion , the end scenario will not be what GM wants to is currently seeking to but how it will end and to the sake of whom
    we will wait and see my dear friend as we always do
