That's what they are good at!

Egyptian police have broken up a pro-reform protest at the Judges' Syndicate in Cairo, beating one senior judge and detaining 15 protesters.
Fifty judges have been holding a sit-in at their headquarters to protest against the prosecution of two of their colleagues by the government.
Police moved against demonstrators overnight and struck a judge who came out to defend them, witnesses said. BBC News
Oh yeah, that's what the police are good at: prosecuting, attacking and humiliating each and every person who dares to call for reform. Yet, when it comes to real tough work like preventing a terrorist attack on the Egyptian soil all we see is the Minister of Interior Affairs dumb face on TV assuring that they are doing their best to track down the attackers. Well, what about those who lost their lives already?? Oh yeah, let them rest in peace, the man was so busy inventing new methods for kicking the opposition's ass.

Anyway, what happened to the judges is nothing new, they have attacked and beaten university professors in campus before. I was not surprised to read this:
"I told them I was a judge, a head of a court, whack, they hit me," he said. "To my surprise they took my trousers off!" BBC News
Police officers assaulted my own professor in campus a year ago and tore his shirt, because he parked his car where their boss used to park his car. And you know what, they got away with it!

So our dear judges, you have just joined the ranks: welcome to the club!

Dahab is not the end!

An injured in Dahab!
Three apparent bomb blasts ripped through Egypt's Red Sea resort of Dahab on Monday, killing 30 people and wounding more than 100, rescue officials said. Reuters
It is not going to an end, never an end, but still more to come; reasons are clear: if you have a minister who is maintaining his position just because he knows well how to kick the opposition's ass, expect more to come. I really wonder, if we live under the Emergency Law which gives a policeman the right to arrest anyone just because he thinks he looks nasty, and still we suffer bombings by some fanatic maniacs every now and then... What does this tell about our police force and organization??? I wonder if the police are just so savage when it comes to protestors demonstrating against the regime, why can't they be strong enough to prevent such explosions?? The last year we suffered a Sharm El Sheikh explosion, and this year Dahab, and seems like the minister is not going to wake up till some kinda bomb rocks his own seat.

Now the talking would be "See, we need the Emergency Law", and "See, we have the Emergency Law on and still we suffer the brainfarts of those fanatic maniacs who attack our resorts every now and then". The most stupid thing is that the talking has started already as if they were waiting for the explosions to take place in order to curse the lack of security caused by the headache the opposition causes.

Now the real question is:
  • How strong is our police force in front of foreign threats? Or do we have the police just to kick the opposition's ass and throw in jail people like Nour?
  • Where were the police when the churches were attacked?
  • Where were the police when the bombs were set in Taba, Sharm and now Dahab?
Answer these questions if you are against what I say, and you will know where the pain comes from. Till we get rid of the pain, let our blood be spilt!

Whisper: To El Adly, still you brag about breaking the infamous terrorist ring, the ring that we even couldn't see how its members look like or how they were arrested?? Brag more about Dahab!

Take bribes and do your job!

"Referees should only pretend to fall for the bait, but make sure the result doesn't favor those offering the bribe," Fanny Amun, acting Secretary-General of the Nigerian Football Association said. Reuters
They guy who said that corruption becomes a habit, then a lifestyle, then a ritual in societies where poverty and backwardness eat up minds was not brain-farting. In Nigeria bribary became something common among soccer referees... They can take bribes and be fair... The question is... if they take bribes to be fair, why the hell would they take bribes in the first place??

I wonder if the rules apply to dirty politics... Where the US bribes China to be fair when it comes to the North Korean nuclear problem... (oh hey, we are no longer hearing any news from North Korea huh... did anyone bribe someone to be silent or what?).

Al Qaeda can bribe Israel and American soldiers in Iraq as well so that more Palestinians and Iraqis would be killed and Al Qaeda continues its holy fucken war against oppression. Similarly, Hamas can pay Israel to kill more Palestinians so that they can kill more Israelis and stick to the freedom fighters' role.

Waiting for the day the Egyptian government announces that its officials are ready to accept bribes in order to stop robbing the country's treasures. That way, Egyptians will be bribing the government to do its job... Great idea, isn't it??...
