The journalists and the network deny the accusations.
When talk show host David Letterman asked news anchor Scott Pelley on June 27, 2012 what happened to the "Arab Spring," the latter replied: "It's almost as if the revolution never happened."
This was what Omar Kamel, an advocate for social justice and civilian rule, feared the most.
Peace means something else in Islam and it behooves us to negotiate peace respecting their definition. If we are going to abide by the belief that all cultures are equal then we must accept the views of those with whom we negotiate a priori when we sit down to discuss and hazard peace.
I asked the caller whether he supported the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. He let out a menacing cackle. "Yes or no, Abdul. Do you support Hamas?", I pressed. "Yes, I do," he replied, prompting me to end the call. The fact is, I know nothing about this man. Is he a jihadi-in-training waiting to attack the West? Is he merely a Muslim Canadian with contempt for Canadian values?
John Greyson and Tarek Loubani have had the misfortune of being caught up in a repressive climate. The Conservatives clearly support Egypt's military rulers, which is tied to an extreme pro-Israel outlook. If these two courageous individuals are further harmed, blame the pro-Israel/anti-Egyptian democracy forces in this country.
During the short-lived rule of ousted Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood complained bitterly about the "deep state" while liberal-secularists accused the Brotherhood of consolidating power throughout Egypt to push through its conservative social policies. In rebutting these claims, each side accused the other of sheer paranoia.
What stance do I take on Egypt? I can defend the killings and support the military, but my voice will change nothing on the ground. On the other hand, I can condemn the killings, guessing but not knowing, that of the 900 or more estimated dead so far, most were not armed, not terrorists, some not even Morsi supporters.
A pair of Canadians detained in Egypt, where nearly 1,000 people have been killed in clashes between police and supporters of ousted president Mohammed Morsi, will get a second visit today from Canadi...
Wednesday, a few minutes after the Egyptian police attacked the Muslim Brotherhood sit-ins in Cairo, Islamists started targeting Christians (Copts) and churches in allover the country. Over 25 churches were burned down, and lots of shops and private property of Christians were robbed and destroyed. Among the burned ones was the Adventist Chapel in Assiut, the place where I attended kindergarten for around two years. My fear is that Egypt's Christians are going to face the same destiny as its Jews. Now, as Egypt may face a civil war after the July 3 coup, massacres against Christians will happen more,
But as we know that Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and in Canada don't really care about true democratic values. They are only interested in electoral process to gain the power in order to further their Islamist agenda not to exercise the right spirit of democracy.
CAIRO - Egyptian security forces killed more than 50 supporters of Egypt's ousted president in one of the deadliest single episodes of violence in more than 2 1/2 years of turmoil. The toppled leader'...
There has been a lot of debate about the nature of Egypt's changing political landscape in the past few days -- did a coup remove President Mohamed Morsi or was the military acting on behalf of a massive popular uprising? But one thing almost everyone agrees on is how quickly the 85-year-old Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi lost favour with the people.
The grassroots Egyptian movement that marshalled millions into Tahrir Square will call this great amassment of people power a revolution. But when the dust settles and the euphoria of another night at Tahrir dissipates, I'm afraid people will wake up to the realization that they are effectively under a military regime.
