Ahmed Meligy was arrested in Egypt for Supporting Peace with Israel

2013/11/14 Update: I was informed that he was seen active on his Facebook account, days ago.

2013/11/9 Update: It seems like he was arrested again in 2013/11/7!

2013/1/17 Update: On Thursday, Ahmed Meligy posted in a group made for his release and confirmed that he was released.

On 31 December, 2012, groups were made and the message was published about the arrest of Ahmed Meligy. He is a supporter for peace with Israel and publishes opinion articles related to peace with Israel in the Jerusalem Post.

This is yet another reminder for those who are fooled to believe that it’s not the state of Egypt which creates the hostility against Israel and Jews, and attacks all peace activists who promote reconciliation with Israel.

The Potential Civil War in Egypt

Important update 2012/12/7: security forces are interrogating the peaceful protesters who were severely injured by the Islamist thugs (for example). They are being interrogated in the same style of the days after 2011/1/28, when peaceful protesters, people walking by or people who protected the streets after the police was ordered to evacuate the streets and thugs were sent to the streets, were prosecuted as thugs. That confirms to the oblivious, that the regime did not change, we are still living under the 1952 regime!

In 2012/12/5, hot spots in Cairo, downtown and Heliopolis, are in panic and without police or traffic police, yet meters away, it’s business as usual. That’s weirdly cool!

2012/12/5, close to Heliopolis, civilians took to streets with belts and sticks to protect their streets. Bringing back the memories of the beginning of from 2011/1/29 till a week or two after 2011/2/11! However, now I saw old men as well, not just youth.

I interpret what is happening nowadays in Egypt as a potential civil war. I’ve always expected it since the beginning of the year, 2012.

What Abdurrahman Ezz claimed about Heliopolis people aiding Islamist thugs is totally false 🙂 The total opposite was happening. Witnesses even claim that all long-bearded men were verbally and physically attacked even by the homeless, after Islamists started attacking peaceful protesters!
