  • 'Nile fears': Mineral water rushing to meet demand in Egypt

    23 Apr 2015 | 2:53 pm
    Companies in Egypt are racing to meet the rising demand for mineral water in Upper Egypt in the wake of a barge, carrying 500 tonnes of phosphate, sinking in the river Nile on Wednesday in the Qena governorate. Managing Director of Nahl Water Company Mamdouh Al-Attar said measures are being taken to increase stocks of raw materials and shift focus to the market of Upper Egypt, where he said demand is expected to surge amidst limited access to drinkable water, as well as people's fear from drinking tap water.

  • In Translation: Aboul Fotouh on culture wars and patriotism

    The Editors
    23 Apr 2015 | 9:04 am
    For the last few weeks – not for a lack of more serious things to talk about – the Egyptian media has fixated on two different aspects of the longstanding culture wars the country has fought over religion and public life. One is the brouhaha caused by TV personality Islam al-Beheiri and his frontal attack on al-Azhar for needing reform; the other is the lament by the writer Cherif Choubashi that Egyptian women should take off their veils. These type of storms in teacups have been standard for decades, they used to be a favorite issue for the Muslim Brotherhood to champion and…

    My op-ed, with Claudia Gazzini on Al Jazeera English's website, on how the UN has recently re-opened the possibility of carrying a partial lifting of the arms embargo on Libya. Which would be a terrible idea:The United Nations is walking a tightrope in Libya. Last week, the UN Security Council passed a resolution condemning the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), the latest non-state actor to emerge in the current chaos. Because of this threat, pressure is mounting on the UN to relax a four-year-old international arms embargo to allow weapons to be delivered to the Libyan military to…

  • On migration in the Mediterranean

    There has been an odd meme spreading around since the tragic deaths of hundreds of migrants attempting to cross the Mediterranean over the last week. The idea, widely spread by the press and politicians, is that Libya is the source of all these problems. For example, in Politico:One EU migration official spelled out just what would be needed to stop the flood of people seeking refuge in Europe.“You have to stabilize the situation in the countries of origin,” she said. That means figuring out a way to return order to Libya, which has descended into civil war and chaos following the…
