Nasser

From Gamal Abdel Nasser to Anwar Sadat, to Hosni Mubarak, "The Pharaohs of Modern Egypt" follows the path of the successive regimes in power, and reveals their common goal to carefully lay the basis of a solid independence, but which, on the other hand, led to the revolution on Tahrir Square in 2011. Between democracy and a military dictatorship, President Gamal Abdel Nasser tried to forge a tailor-made brand of socialism to eradicate deep inequality. But in order to do so, he did not hesitate to repress and gag the opposition, while crushing civil society and leading Egypt into the War of Attrition against Israel. His sudden death rendered his socialist vision obsolete, paving the way for his successor, President Anwar Sadat.

Sadat

From Gamal Abdel Nasser to Anwar Sadat, to Hosni Mubarak, "The Pharaohs of Modern Egypt" follows the path of the successive regimes in power, and reveals their common goal to carefully lay the basis of a solid independence, but which, on the other hand, led to the revolution on Tahrir Square in 2011. President Anwar Sadat led the country down the diametrically opposite path. He forged an alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood, the regime's life-long enemy, and rerouted the country onto the road of capitalism. By ignoring increasing wealth gaps and insisting on peace with Israel at all political costs, the "pious" president opened up the Pandora's Box of radical Islam, a decision that cost him his life, and which has since had repercussions on the entire world.

Mubarak

From Gamal Abdel Nasser to Anwar Sadat, to Hosni Mubarak, "The Pharaohs of Modern Egypt" follows the path of the successive regimes in power, and reveals their common goal to carefully lay the basis of a solid independence, but which, on the other hand, led to the revolution on Tahrir Square in 2011. President Hosni Mubarak rose to power after Sadat's assassination, seeking stability and security-the foundation of a regime rooted in the alliance of power and money.

The struggle between the between the army and the Muslim Brotherhood, the country's only political forces, leaves little choice to successive governments and has defined the Egyptian politica [...]

Arabic Movie

Loading...
So many Israelis still wax nostalgic about that old Friday afternoon ritual, back in the times when television had just one channel. Everyone would watch the Arab movie of the week, but did anybody ever wonder how Israel's official TV station was able to transcend hostile boundaries to obtain these films, and why it insisted on showing movies made by "the enemy"? The Arabic-language movie from Egypt let some of us escape back to our original homeland, and let others peek out from our "villa in the jungle" and catch a glimpse of our neighbors across the border. But most of us didn't really want to see the people whose culture, anguish, and aspirations were reflected on our screens. "Arab Movie" brings us the stars and the songs, the convoluted plots, and that fleeting moment when we s [...]

Rise of the Black Pharaohs [electronic resource]

Around 800 BC, Kush, a little-known subject state of Egypt, rose up and conquered the Egyptians, enthroned its own Pharaohs, and ruled over the empire of King Tut for nearly 100 years. This unlikely chapter of history has been buried by the Egyptians and belittled by early archaeologists, who refused to believe that dark skinned Africans could have risen so high. But now, in the heart of Sudan, archeologists Geoff Emberling and Tim Kendall are bringing the truth about the Black Pharaohs to life. In a royal tomb beneath an ancient Kush pyramid and at the soaring heights of a mountain sacred to both Kushites and Egyptians, they are finding indisputable evidence of an advanced African society with powerful armies, vast reach, and spiritually-driven imperial aspirations that rival the Eg [...]
