March 29: Solar Eclipse

Language section:

We are one of the lucky countries to be in the path of the Moon's [umbral|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umbra] shadow in the upcoming [solar eclipse|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_Eclipse]. We can see a total eclipse from El-Sallum. Many people are already planning their trips and are going to set up camps and other observational areas for scientists and non-scientists. I personally want to go and watch the bright disc.

ISPs block 3 websites

Language section:

[JC says that |http://jimmys-corner.blogspot.com/2006/03/step-on-way-to-democracy-update.html] that he received two emails informing him that three main opposition websites are now blocked by the government. Users of the main ISPs (Linkdotnet, Tedata and Raya) in Egypt cannot have any access to these sites anymore.

These websites are:
*[Save Egypt Front|http://www.saveegyptfront.org/]
*[Egyptian Talks|http://www.egyptiantalks.org/]

The [Ikhwan website is still accessible|http://www.ikhwanonline.com], which was [blocked in 2005|http://www.manalaa.net/ikhwan_online_blocked]. I think blocking an Ikhwan site now is harder than it used to be. The 87 Ikhwan MPs will bother the government about their own sites only.

Egyptian Talks is a respectable forum with long history of discussing many political issues in Egypt openely and in reasonable and moderate tone. Although I remember once they had to shut one of their forums that discussed an issue related to Mubarak.

بطاقة إنتخابية ... بالتظبيط !

Language section:

الدافع الرئيس للتسجيل و الحصول على بطاقة إنتخاب هو الشعور بأمكانية إحداث تغيير. من المحزن أن تصدر تلك البطاقة ولو جزئيا بنفس الطرق التي تأمل أن تراها تختفي.

اليوم ذهبت الى قسم الشرطة لأستخراج بعض الأوراق. صحيفة الحالة الجنائية و صور من شهادة الميلاد و السؤال عن بطاقة الإنتخاب.

بعد سؤال عدد من الأفراد، أنضممت لطابور رجال من مختلف الأعمار و الأشكال. جميعهم يرتدون ملابس بنية اللون و مخالفة لما تقترحه أشعة الشمس. جميعهم متشبث بنفس الأوراق متقدمين لنفس الغرض: صحيفة الحالة الجنائية.

From the press release:

The Black Death didn't happen

english tags:

Language section:

It is impossible that 34 million people died in Europe in 3 years (1347-1350). The number is very large. It is also important to resist the numbers published by the West, it is a conspiracy to hurt Arabs and Muslims. There are secret Freemason documents that accurately describes the number to be around 4 thousand individuals died in Europe. When the disease reached Mecca and the Arab world it killed more people than in Europe. Everyone died in the Arab and Muslim world that no one was left to record the number of deaths. Not like what the crusaders wants the world to believe. The myth of the plague is to help the state of Israel to exist, since they thought that Jews were responsible for transmitting disease, they thought they would rather quarantine them in a state outside Europe and across the Mediterranean.
