Egypt: Feelings of a nation

With the world's sight focused on Annapolis, Egyptian students have another battle with the Israeli and American Ambassadors at home.

Egyptian Randa Raafat (Ar) shows us how some Egyptian students are expressing their feelings about the Israeli and American Ambassadors in her country.

She writes:

أشياء جميلة بدأت تظهر وسط الموجات العارمة من الفساد واللامبالاة

أول شيء جميل
بنات في المرحلة الإعدادية بمدرسة العبور بالمعادي أثاروا قلق السفير اليهودي في القاهرة عندما نقل محل سكنه إلى فيلا الأميرة فوزية بالمعادي ،لدرجة أنه استدعى الأمن بسبب هتفاتهن اليومية للمطالبة بطرده من مصر
هذا شيء مفرح جدا بغض النظر عن مكان سكن السفير من فيلا الشبراوي إلى فيلا الأميرة فوزية
(تراث مصر.)

Beautiful things started to show up amid the violent waves of corruption and indifference.

The first beautiful thing is: Girls in preparatory stage at El Oboor school, El Maadi district, raised the Jewish Ambassador’s -in Cairo- concerns after he moved in to Villa Princess Fawzia in El Maadi district to the extent that he summoned security because of their daily calls, demanding kicking him out of the country.

This is very happy news, regardless of the location of the Ambassador's residence from Villa Al Shabrawy to Villa Princess Fawzia. (Both, pure Egyptian heritage.)

الخبر المفرح الآخر
هو طلاب جامعة المنصورة الذي تسببت هتفاتهم في منع السفير الأمريكي من دخول جامعة المنصورة ، رغم وجود أكثر من 17 شركة أمن خاصة لحماية السفير
هذان الخبران جاءا في الوقت الذي تعقد فيه أمريكا بالتعاون مع اسرائيل مؤتمر انابوليس للسلام

وها هو الشعب يقول
ماحدش بيضحك علينا أحنا فاهمين كل حاجة ورافضين أي سلام مع أمريكا واسرائيل

The other happy piece of news: Mansoura University students’ calls prevented the American ambassador from entering Mansoura University, despite the presence of more than 17 private security companies to protect him.

These pieces came at a time when America in cooperation with Israel, are holding the Annapolis Conference for Peace.

And here is what the nation says ..
No one is fooling us, we understand everything and we are rejecting any peace with America and Israel.
