640) .. and the Misery goes on!

I simply can't understand how can a man in the 21st century deal with his wife through beating her! But what is shocking to me is this news below; that 78% of husbands -in Egypt- has beaten their wives either physically or emotionally.

The irony is that 65% only of the wives has admitted that which means that 13% were even afraid to admit it!

It is not only a crime, but it is a continuous one, as when the children watch this as a normal scene, it becomes part of the their conception about marriage, ... and the misery goes on!

When I think about it, I can't blame the man only, I have to blame the families that have double standards in rasing their boys and girls to the extent that men think of women as a piece of furniture at home, and women accept it coz of "del ragel wala del 7eta".

But it is not about blaming only. The question is: how to prevent this from being passed on to the next generation?

639) Connect the News !

Each of these four pieces of news -that I read on the same day- provoked me to write about, but somehow they are linked together in my brain. It just tell us something about us and the community/ies we are living within, can you figure out the link between these headlines?!

نجيب جبرائيل يؤكد ظهور السيدة العذراء في إحدى كنائس شبر
هيئة الأمر بالمعروف السعودية تطارد فتاة فى دورة مياه للنساء
بالالوان الطبيعية فيلم مثير للجدل ينتقد عقلية التحريم
تأييد حبس مدون 4 سنوات لإدانته بازدراء الإسلام واهانته رئيس الدولة

Translation:
- A known lawyer assures the "appearance" of Virgin Mary in one of Shoubra Churches!
- "Amr Bel Ma3rouf" Authority in Saudi chases a girl inside a ladies bathroom!
- "Bel Alwan El Tabee3ya" movie is controversial as it is criticizing the mentality of banning and Taboos.
- Higher court reinforces jailing a blogger -for 4 years- for mocking Islam and the President.

638) "Lakad Zaka7t lak tazkaratyn" to Lebanon!

Before watching the video, please note that I do adore Lebanon and Lebanese people. Actually Lebanon is one of my top favourite 10 countries in the world. But What happened in this parliament session can't be missed.

637) Ana El Baradie ya Hosny !

Isn't it ironic that someone with the profile of Dr.Mohamed El Badarie can't serve his country and run for the president?!

The fierce attack on Baradie is not understood! Running for president should be a right for all eligible Egyptians. This attack reminded me of a TV series where a Grand Theif called el Baradie used to give hell to a police officer called Rushi, and used to call him in a certain tone every episode in order to scare him saying: "Ana El Baradie ya Roushdi". Somehow it crossed my mind that Dr.Baradie is calling President Hosny, and telling him in the same deep scary tone: "Ana El Baradie ya Honsy;)"

I am not supporting any yet, but I know that we are on the right path again when I see real elections with real different candidates like Dr.Baradie, Amr Moussa, Hosam Badrawy, Omar Soliman, Gamal Mubarak, and others debating about their real programs, and the choice is for the people at the end.

Am I dreaming ... mesh 2awy, before amending article 76 it was possible, but this article (longest artictle in any constitution in the world) has almost named the presidential candidates of 2011.

In all cases I am happy that there is such talks and debates, bit by bit change can happen ... and one day soon the major change will happen no matter how long they planned.

P.S> One of my friends has written on the facebook: "ma2edroush 3al 7omar, etshataro 3al Barad3i ;)

636) Knowing What Women Want ... Hmm !

Do you remember the romantic comedy "What Women Want" production of 2000, starring Mel Gibson, and Helen Hunt?

I was just wondering:

1. Will it be a blessing or a curse for a guy to hear what is inside women's mind?
2. Will women be happy about finding a guy who finally understands them, or they rather enjoy the mutual mystery with all its painful mis-communication and mis-understanding problems?

634) The Swiss Minaret !

I have visited Switzerland before, and I loved the country and people too. I got the feeling that they have chosen the hardest option of being unbaised and respected them for such challenge.

I hoped that the swiss people have had proven to the world how unbiased and coherent they are, and instead of voting against building minarets, they could have simply voted for having the most prominent swiss product "Clocks" fixed over each new minaret -check the picture-. It can be a beautiful architecture holding a practical instrument that can be of benefit for everyone without positiong it as a "Muslim Missile"!

633) The Sins !

It seems that sinning is a fact that we have to deal with. No matter what precautions we take, we always keep sinning in one way or another. I won't ask about how to stop sinning coz I don't think there is a practical answer to this question, but I will ask What are the sins that you consider the 7 deadly sins?
