Metrojet disaster
Just heard the Egyptian ambasador to Ireland on Irish radio. Her attitude (and Egypt's) made me think of a scenario where a soldier somewhere in the Middle East informs his Egyptian companion: "We're not going into that house. We have reason to believe it might be booby-trapped". "But sir", replies the Egyptian, "we have no definitive proof that it IS booby-trapped. I advise that until such proof emerges you proceed as normal ..."

Mohamed Fahmy (m), Peter Greste (m), Baher Mohamed (m), Sohaib Saad Mohamed Mohamed (m), Khaled Mohamed Abdulraouf Mohamed (m), Shadi Abdul Hameed Abdul Azeem Ibrahim (m), Khalid Abdulrahman Mahmoud Ahmed Abdulwahab (m)

Egypt’s highest appeals court has overturned the conviction of Al Jazeera journalists Mohamed Fahmy, Peter Greste and Baher Mohamed. The three men, all prisoners of conscience, will now be retried before a lower court but will remain in detention.

In a brief hearing on 1 January, the Court of Cassation ruled that the court which convicted the Al Jazeera English journalists of broadcasting “false news” and involvement with the banned Muslim Brotherhood movement had not followed the correct legal procedures and for the men to be retried. Amnesty International considers the charges to be trumped-up.

The Cairo Criminal Court that will now retry the men could order their release on bail, but the court has yet to set a date for the first hearing in the case.

Canadian-Egyptian national Mohamed Fahmy and Australian national Peter Greste have asked the Egyptian authorities to deport them, under new powers announced by President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in November 2014. Baher Mohamed has been unable to make such a request as he only has Egyptian nationality. Mohamed Fahmy’s representatives have also called for him to be released provisionally on medical grounds, pointing out that his health has deteriorated and he has not received adequate medical treatment for his broken arm and Hepatitis C.

Also to be retried are a separate group of men jailed in the same case.
Sohaib Saad Mohamed Mohamed, Khaled Mohamed Abdulraouf Mohamed, Shadi Abdul Hameed Abdul Azeem Ibrahim and Khalid Abdulrahman Mahmoud Ahmed Abdulwahab.

The Prosecution did not present any evidence proving that they had been involved in committing terrorism-related offences during the trial last year.

• I call on the Egyptian authorities to release Mohamed Fahmy, Peter Greste and Baher Mohamed immediately and unconditionally and ensure their convictions are quashed.

• I call on them to ensure that in the meantime Mohamed Fahmy has access to any medical attention he may require and is granted medical leave.

• I urge them to ensure that the other four men’s convictions on charges based on the peaceful exercise of their rights to freedom of expression and association are quashed.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Yours respectfully

Urgent call to action!
The Egyptian Embassy must help to open the Rafah crossing between Gaza and Egypt immediately and end its complicity with Israel’s genocide of the people of Gaza! Egypt must help their sisters and brothers in Gaza.

Please help the people of Gaza - Please!
We are stuck in the Gaza strip - the world's biggest open air prison, The Egyptian military closed the " Rafah " border for almost a month now !! Many Gazan patients, students, and others aren't able to leave !! While the Israeli\Egyptian border " Taba " didn't close for one single day !!
Today the Egyptians said that they will be opening " Rafah " tomorrow only to let people enter Gaza, but no one will be leaving the Gaza strip !!
What kind of treatment is this ?! coming from your Arab neighboring country ?!
Please help the people of Gaza .. Please - Noor Harazeen

Please stop the genocide in Egypt
I join billion others in our protest over the current state of Egypt.What took place is barbaric and does not reflect the Egyptians in general.

The well- being of the people should be considered.Your internal problems will open doors to your real enemies outside Egypt.

Our prayers for peace in Egypt.
