Thank you, I really appreciate it! Frankly, it's the first time I've seen this barnstar! --Sherif9282 (talk) 01:12, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

After seeing your photos, I second this award. You deserve it. cheers --Guerillero | My Talk 00:03, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for sharing the photos, they're AMAZING! And thank you for being on the ground and sharing your experience.

RE: More picturesEdit

Eshta! tear gas grenade was removed and will be added soon in the Analysis section later. I working on something now with another editor to try to show the women role in the protests and whatnot before adding it to the main page. Let me know when you upload them. ويسقط مبارك...ثورة ثورة حتى النصر ثورة في كل شوراع مصر . -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 14:42, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

The meaning of the jokeEdit

Hi Sherif9282, First I'd like to congratulate you with the victory of the people of Egypt. I am jealous of you because you were a part of the revolution. I wish I were there too. You are right "regime" is not a single person. Egyptians have lots of job to do to remove "regime". I hope Egypt would become the second after Israel country in Middle East to have a real democracy, and that Iran's scenario will not be repeated in Egypt, although at least one Middle East's expert said that he would bet his money that Egypt would end up with Muslim Brotherhood sooner or later, and would become something as Gaza under hamas. I hope this scenario will not happen, and your posts made me to understand that most Egyptians would not like it to happen either. I hope that one day rather sooner than later Egyptians people and other Arabs would realize that Israelis are not their enemies, and the peace would come to the Middle East at last.

Now I read a joke you left at BorisG talk page (I am watching his talk page).I like jokes, but I need your help in understanding it. So here's your joke: "If Mubarak had launched the air strike against us, then ruled Israel for the thirty years, they would have been reduced to begging." I believe I do understand it, but just to make sure... under "us" you mean Egypt, and if, yes, dos this mean that Egyptians do not believe Mubarak to be a war hero, and believe that the air strikes on Israel he took a part of did not produce any damage to her at all? Thanks.--Mbz1 (talk) 14:31, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Hey Mbz1! I really appreciate your words. It really has been spectacular watching history unfold in this way, and it's a source of pride to have taken part. I believe many share the same hopes; this could be a historical junction for the region, and the days ahead may well prove to be even more difficult, but I'm optimistic. I hope to see peace achieved between two peoples, not two regimes; that will be lasting. I might note however, I think the current state of Gaza owes more to narrow-minded, poorly, and somewhat hypocritical, policies pursued by various nations, than simply to Hamas. I fear Israel is repeating the horn-blowing and rhetoric, exaggerating the prospects of a theocracy here. After the military's statement though, I think Israel has been somewhat reassured that its primary concern of stability has been guaranteed in the meantime.
About the joke, "us" refers to Egypt indeed. Egyptians, most of them anyways, do believe Mubarak to be a war hero, and the general impression is the air attacks, especially the opening one, did contribute significantly to Egyptian successes in the war. The significance is that Mubarak's contribution and significance to the 1973 War, an event of special pride and appeal in the minds of many Egyptians, is hugely dwarfed and made irrelative by decades of repression and corruption.--Sherif9282 (talk) 16:33, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for explaining it to me. If many Egyptians believe him to be a war hero, I might have changed the joke a little bit like this: "If Mubarak ruled Israel even for only one year as he ruled Egypt for 30 years,the Israelis would have been reduced to begging." BTW have you heard this saying: "The people get the government they deserve"? I used to live under dictatorship myself, and I know how hard it is to overthrow the dictators. That's why I am very happy Egyptians were able to do it. It is an amazing achievement! You really have a great military that never turned on their own people. Anyway... Good luck to Egypt in building a real democracy.--Mbz1 (talk) 16:50, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
Anytime! I didn't come across that exact saying, but I know the similar, albeit harsher and more critical, Islamic saying or "hadeeth": As you are, your rulers shall be." These last three weeks, the change in people has been as radical as the overthrow of Mubarak, and it's been change for the better. Thank you, Mbz1, really. --Sherif9282 (talk) 17:23, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Egypt Image UsageEdit

Sherif9282 -

My name is Ken Syme and I am the Associate Senior Editor of my school's newspaper. For our upcoming issue, which will be released in a few days, we will be featuring an article on the current state of Egypt. As a school newspaper, we have no way to capture photos of the current events in the area, and after scouring the internet, I came across your photographs - which were incredible. I was hoping that the paper could have permission to publish one of your photographs. The integrity of the photograph will not be compromised by the publication; though it will be in black and white. Lastly, should you care to see the accompanying article or the final publication of the piece in question at any time, we will gladly send a copy either physically or electronically. Once again, we would be very grateful for the opportunity to use this image for our paper. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask. Please contact me via e-mail at symek@winchesterthurston.org or via the talk pages/wikipedia e-mail feature. Thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely,

2011 Egyptian revolution‎Edit

 
A photo that explains the 2011 Egyptian Constitutional Referendum process in Arabic if you vote Yes or No
  • Oh man, the picture are amazing. I just trying to expand the women's role and I wonna use more of it. I would love it if you can work also on the article. I am spread very thin right now with the Libya, Yemen, Jordan, and Bahrain protests.
  • غير إني شغال مع شباب 6 إبريل وغيرهم علشان نشوف عنعمل إيه الإسبوعيين القادميين علشان نخلص من أمن الدولة وبقايا النظام
  • The timeline before Mubarak is almost 150K at the moment. If we tried to make a feature article, it will get even bigger. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 20:24, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
    • You can talk to me here or facebook whenever you want. You can use the arabic version; The post-Mubarak's resignation article there is better than what we have here. Let me know if you need any help there -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 09:07, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

I need your help here -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 21:21, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Yup, It was 6 April, Kefaya, some leftist, some liberals, and some young members of the MB. We gather some papers and took some photos and they are up on facebook. I thought universities were closed until constitution referendum. They should let everyone pass with an A for such a good revolution LOL. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 19:37, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
Protest and demands As (الشعب يريد الغش في الإمتحان) and warned them that you will protest and kick out.
Everyone now claims that he has written one. you can go to wiki and find the American and French constitution, print them and wave them too. I have been talking to people right now and the majority agree that the constitutional referendum needs to be defeated. we need right a new one and we have to make sure that the new second amendment read "المصريون لدى القانون سواء. وهم متساوون في التمتع بالحقوق المدنية والسياسية وفيما عليهم من الواجبات والتكاليف العامة لا تمييز بينهم في ذلك بسبب الأصل أو اللغة أو الدين" but we need to name the first or third (the second amendment is always a problem, the American for example). There needs to be no mention of Sharia Law and that Egypt is a muslim country (countries are inanimate that cannot believe and disbelieve in any god and the fact the second amendment was not in the constitution until 1981 هوالشعب كان جميعة كفار فبل 1981؟). You need talk people at your university and tell them that constitutional referendum needs to be defeated (Now that we can speak freely) and after its defeated, y'all should have a debate about second amendment. people need to be informed and educated on the matter. We need explain to people what's democracy and about the rights and the rights of others; Why Sharia Law should never be implemented (Slavery, inequality among citizens, etc). everyone has a role to play in this revolution. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 11:06, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

The solution is simple. Try to get a hold of one of the respected Intellectuals (علاء الأسواني أو بلال فضل أو عمرو حمزاوي أو البسطويسي أو غيرهم) and tell them to talk to the students about holding an election by the end of next week so you will have a student body representing you to talk to the university about your demands. PS: There are a lot of Egyptian professors in America, Canada and Europe that might be coming back to Egypt (once shit comes down and we know where we are heading towards) so they can replace some of the current staff. I think the army might not put referendum for the people to vote on. They might hold an election to elect a committee to draft a new constitution -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 13:42, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Glad I can help in any way. Hope it works. Sent you a reply on كتاب الوش. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 16:10, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Can you translate that text on the photo and readd it to wikipedia? أعمل صورة جديدة بالترجمة الإنجليزي -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 18:50, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Ok, ترجم الكلام في الصورة and send me the translation and I will do the rest :D -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 19:27, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

OK, talk to your friend and see if he can يعمل صورة جديدة بالترجمة الإنجليزي. I have posted the translation on arabic version. He has to be on Commons to be able see the translation (notes). Let me know if he can do it or not so I will talk to my guy and see if he can do it. Hopefully, it will be done by 2morrow. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 01:48, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi Sherif! I can help with the image, but would prefer an English version as I don't have an Arabic keyboard. Please let me know if you make an English version. Cheers, Ynhockey (Talk) 11:46, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank YouEdit

Ahlan Ya Sherif! I know it's very late on my part, but a thousand congratulations on your and all of Egypt's victory, the greatest Arab victory of our modern history and I'm not exaggerating. The revolution was launched from Tunis (actually the fellahi town of Sidi Bouzid) but the Egyptians took it to a whole new platform. Because of its success in Cairo, it will be breaking the walls of fear, repression, humiliation, and inequality (in all of its forms) throughout the entire Arab world. How soon will each regime fall to the will of its people, no one knows. We can only hope that each country realizes its freedom soon rather than later. Of course even the revolution in Egypt is incomplete, but it seems to be moving in the right direction everyday. I thank you personally for your participation in this beautiful movement and for providing Wikipedia with fantastic photos that really serve as a cross-examination of the people who served as the revolution's true soldiers (including the young soldiers of the army). Keep up the great work! I look forward to working with you wherever and whenever I can. Salam akhi! --Al Ameer son (talk) 06:23, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes I don't think any Arab has ever been more proud. I have the same worries, but I'll be damned if some nut-job evil clown like Gaddafi halts the revolution though. On the bright side, I think if he's disposed of within the coming weeks this could potentially reinvigorate the people of Yemen (who seem to be closing in on Saleh), Bahrain, Algeria, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan and even Saudi Arabia, Syria and the scraps of Palestine. I'll tell you this: America won't let Gaddafi remain in power because it will apparently send a signal that only America's allies are gonna be the ones to fall, while its enemies will survive the revolutionary wave. I hope the defunct Arab League could do something (lol). Maybe in the future, a new bloc for the Arab countries (democratic ones) will be established that has enough clout to solve the problems of its own territories and peoples and have real functions other than keeping dictators and kings busy eating bizr and cursing each other. We'll have to wait and see I guess. As for the Muslim-Christian troubles, this is very unfortunate. I hope it doesn't get any more serious and that both sides turn down the heat a little because we all know the only ones who come out winners from debacles of this sort are Mubarak's left-over cronies. Anyhow, the will of Egypt's sons and daughters looks impenetrable these days to the crooked ways of old so that's a very hopeful sign for our future. --Al Ameer son (talk) 05:22, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

1973 WarEdit

Hi Sherif,
I would like you to watch an article about the 1973 war from the official website of the Knesset, the Israeli parliament. This article appears both in Hebrew and Arabic versions.
[In Hebrew]
[In Arabic]
The outcome of the war is not presented as a decisive Israeli victory such as the 1967 war. I know you don't have any trust in information that comes from official Israeli sources but the article doesn't seem to be cheap propaganda, although there are some inaccuracies. Please, tell me what you think about it.

Hosni Mubarak and his kids arrestedEdit

Check out the ITN section :D -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 09:47, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

The discussion is still ongoing so you can give your opinion if you want. The article needs some update and editing. I would it myself but my boss is up my ass at the moment and I am going to be busy for awhile so if you can help it would be great. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 09:43, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
It's all good. How is university? still protesting against the man? I heard that y'all had an election where the Salafi and MB members got their asses hand it to them. Did they claim that the other were the "enemy of god" and "Islam shall win"? I honestly cant believe these people. "Islam will win" is very insulting لإنو لو ما فازوش معنها إن الإسلام خسر وان قبل كده الإسلام كان خسران (مبارة كرة بقى) ناس مجنونة. I read the article before but then he released a statement saying he didnt say that(The usual Anon non-sense). Tantawi pulled the same shit few days later. They are trying to fix their image so more ppl will like them because shit like this: Egypt blogger gets three years in jail for insulting the military ناس ولاد شرموطة. الحل مجلس رئاسي وإلا الموضوع كده هيبقى إنقلاب رسمي. No blogger faced military court even during Mubarak's regime. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 08:01, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
هم لسه مسميين قسم انجليزي قسم الفرافير؟ Shit never change LMFAO. I know the nile problem better than Mubarak himself and many people dont understand how big its (especially the Islamist)مش فاهمين إنو لو عاملهودولة إسلامية ذي إيران بس سنية أمريكا وأوربا هيسهلوا موضوع السدود والنيل هيقلل عندنا بنسبة فوق الخمسين% وده ممكن يموتنا. Iraq faced the same problem before with Turkey and because of Saddam, it lost most of its rivers. It freaks the shit out of me. Hope it works out whatever they are doing but Pope Shenouda III needs to get involved to fix this issue.
Tantawi and Sami Anan couldnt/wouldnt have followed Mubaraks orders. The army mentality is very different than that of the police. During the revolution people asked if they would follow Mubaraks orders, and I told them they wouldnt. They are the people's army; for the people by the people. Tantawi and Sami Anan wanted to save their asses because they knew we wouldnt stop until we won. I have many reasons that makes me dislike them and last thing to be added to that list is Michael Nabil. Claiming that he is pro-Israel is just fucking dirty. Hopefully he will be released when/if a president takes power. (I could speak all day about my dislike to the army but my eyes will melt looking at the PC screen before I finish)
What group are you planning to work with? Is it a new group? Is it a big group? where are you going to work? If you ask for my opinion, join the ElBaradei's campaign. I might be coming back to Egypt (if my boss will let me) and I might be working with some old friends in Sinai, Matruh, and the New Valley. Places were political ignorance is the norm. I used to go to the poorest neighborhoods in Cairo and spread political awareness there and do charity work.
Side Notes: The 25th of April group can demand Hosni be president of the prison he will be in ناس ولاد متناكة. Salafis are just worried honestly (Its like its the first time to speak to people who are not Saladis). The next election is the most important election so far in my life time. So far not one decent political party (Naguib Sawiris's party is ok but its too capitalistic for my own taste). -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 18:01, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

I honestly have not seen a political party in Egypt that I can join nor support due to their Political ideologies or people they have in. Their main problem is they need more time to define their ideologies (That's why I voted NO). Amr Waked and Amr Hamzawy are good people and I trust and respect them; my only take on them is they are not radical enough. Bas They are better than many other that speak in the name of the revolution. By the way, who are you supporting in the presidential election ?

Side Note: Whenever you are free let me know because I am going to need your help with this article; I am trying to get it to GA standard -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 19:59, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Battle of Ismailia A-ClassEdit

I just read it again and I believe its very close to being ready for an A-class review. Some things should be taken care of preferably before, however. First, although the article is well-referenced and you have at least four major sources, you should try to bring in a couple more if possible. Second, I noticed the lack of wikilinks throughout the article where they would certainly be useful. Namely, Ismail Azmy, Ali Heikal, Osama Ibrahim, Sa'ad el-Shazly and Serabaeum. There are others as well, but the aforementioned seem more important to the battle and there should be articles about them. I'll try to find some information and start their articles within this week or the next (I got finals for the next few days.) Both issues are relatively minor in the overall sense, but they should be done to ensure the article passes as an A-class. They're tougher than GA reviews since you got at least two users reviewing the article and ideally A-class articles should be close to the quality of Featured articles. My advice is to nominate it by the end of the week or better yet next week and when you do, it's best if you use the military wikiproject for the review. Here are the nomination instructions. Not too experienced in military conflict articles myself, but I'll try to be of use wherever possible—copyedits, new articles, and source hunting. It really is a great article and a great read with pretty much all the requirements for an A-class article having indeed been already met. --Al Ameer son (talk) 21:16, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

I've been doing some copyedits wherever I believe necessary, but please keep track of my edits just in case I confused information. Also, you have to believe me when I tell you I couldn't find jack about the people and places I mentioned above. At least nothing in English sources so I'm sorry to tell you I won't be able to start articles on them. However, come to think about it, not having articles on them shouldn't really be an issue. It just looks better when you give the text some relevant blue links. I'll be happy to contribute as much as I can and other than that, good luck! --Al Ameer son (talk) 04:52, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Nice blog, didnt know you have one. Questions: did you watch Musab interview on Tahrir TV last night [2]? Did you watch Wael Gamal interview on ONtv last night[3]? The SCAF has some question that need to be answer, like why was the Mubaraks were not charged with anything for a month? Why wasnot Zakarya Azmi changed with anything for a over a month? They had enough time to hide there money and claim there are innocent. Why are the only people facing the iron fist of them are the protesters? 9,000 people have faced military trail since they took officer non of which are from the former regime!!! ده غير قانون الأحزاب والحقوق السياسة وتجريم الإعتصامات وغيره وغيره. على العموم, الناس مش نزله تحبط ففي المجلس العسكري. They just want justice and freedom. and BTW dude, the egyptian economy is not as bad as the tv and news paper make it sound like the world will end 2morrow.

Basa, How are you bank masr? :D I wonna talk to you about a lot things. One, dude, why are joining/voting to Hizb al-Wasat al-Jadid? عيزين يرشحوا العوا أو أبو فتوح بتاع إلى الأخوان وبين الإثننين يا قلبي ما تحزن. I have been following Amr Waked on twitter for a while now and I honestly still cant tell where he stands. يوم يقول رحم الله ابن لادن ويوم يسب في دين الإسلاميين. And yes, I did tell people about your blog and many are waitng for you to join the evil world of twitter وتبقى كدة أجندات وقلة مندسة وبتاع وقيعة :D. As for me, If I can vote, I will most likely vote for the Workers Democratic Party; I know most of people there من أيام الكفاح :D and I trust them with my life.
I might be wrong but I think the political parties in Egypt are going to in four main camps. Secular Capitalist (زي المصريين الأحرار ومعظم الأحزاب اللبرلية الجديدة), Islamic Capitalist (The muslim brotherhood and Salafis), Secular Left (Workers Democratic Party), and Islamic Left (Young Egypt Party). I also think there will be a coalition for the next election (Im trying to work on it) between the secular forces to ensure a secular (civil) state. Our biggest challenges is the corrupted media, military junta, Amn Al Dawla أنا إنه غيروا إسمه بس أنا بحب أسمي الحاجات بإسمها الحقيقي, ignorance, sexism, and undemocratic forces. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 06:55, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

I know someone from the Justice Party (mostafa alnagar) and I cant even tell if they are secular/Islamic Capitalist/Socialist! They said we are not an ideological party which does not make any god damn sense but they are still a new party and they are trying to see what works for them so we will wait and see. As Wasat Party they would fall under Islamic Liberalism/Islamic Modernism and are Capitalist. The Osama thing was odd, people seems to forget that he KILLED arabs and muslims (even Sunni); and the reason we get many of us get strapped search is thanks to his actions. Amr Gamoussa will most likely going to win the election; That's why I want it to be parliamentary system while the president remains as a figure head almost علشان كمان الناس بتوع بابا الرئيس. الناس في مصر فاكرين كلمة علماني كلمة قبيحة وكفر. But I believe that I need to honest and clear about what I want. Many Egyptian tend to forget that most of their heros (Gamal Abdul-Nasser or Saad Zaghloul) were secular but thanks to Anwar and the Islamification that was done by the Islamic movements in Egypt (Support of course by Saudi money); The word secular become anti-Islam, anti-Hijab, pro-gay (علشان كثير هما أوي في مصر وكل شوية بيطلبوا حقوقهم أصلوا) etc. the general have no idea what the world means but I still will fight to defend my secular and wont back down just cuz ppl might call me names. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 11:19, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

I read your post and spread it on twitter. I agree with 3rd and 4th points, not so much with the 1st and 2nd. To understand why I disagree with the 2nd point, you have to read the Muslim Brotherhood old program. بدل مايكون في ولي فقيهعملوا مجلس فقهاء. Wilayat-e Faqih was made up by Ruhollah Khomeini to ensure that Iran will always be under clerical rule. the MB are trying/tried to to create a sunni version of it and they got the Salafi to back them up. as for the first point, it honestly depends on the interpretation of sharia law and people's education والثقافة العامة. I like give en example Slavery in Islam is allowed and was only stopped due to secular thoughts enforced by the international bodies (Saudi had slave unitl the 70s). I feel much safer that human rights will be protected under a secular state. Also keep in mind that's there are different level of secularism that fits every society. I think/hope that Egypt would be as secular as America while I think Tunisia is going to follow the French example. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 06:39, 5 June 2011 (UTC)
صحبك متلخبط بين نظام الإمارة ونظام ولاية الفقيه. أنا كنت عايش في الكويت ومعظم أصحابي هناك كانوا شيعة بس معظمهم كان رافض مبدأ ولاية الفقية. Anyways, I think that we agree that American secularism is best suited for Egypt. I was talking with some people about draft a "Bill of rights" علشان لو حتى الإخوان أخذوا البرلمان إلي جاي الناس ماتكفرش وتهج وتسيب البلد. I wanted to model it after United States First Bill of Rights (من غير الحته بتاعت السلاح) and United States Second Bill of Rights. Maybe your next post should address that :D -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 16:35, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

IdeaEdit

Create a mini-project to bring the articles of Neda, Mohamed Bouazizi, Khaled Said, and Hamza Ali Al-Khateeb up to GA/FA status. Possibly expand to include others whose deaths became symbols of war and peace (i.e. Pat Tillman). Would you like to work on something like this? Ocaasi t | c 21:25, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Battle of Ismailia passed A-classEdit

As it should have. Congratulations Sherif! What battle's next? By the way I read your Points on the Civil State. Quite educational. This what the Arab nation as a whole should understand and Egypt of course must be the example. Thank God Turkey has provided a model as close to home as possible though. Although, as you say, Egyptian (and I'm gonna throw in Arab as well) society is generally ignorant when it comes to these matters because of the obvious lack of experience and centuries of repression and oppression from various ruling regimes and dynsaties, the Arab world in general do long to become like Turkey (more or less) so that's a positive development. There are countless obstacles (the Saudis, the Egyptian elite, the military's addiction to power, and the influence of Western and Arab donor states to name a few) in the way that are unfortunately out of the people's control, but at least they're finally on the right path. --Al Ameer son (talk) 19:58, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

The lion of Egyptian revolution (Qasr al-Nil Bridge).jpgEdit

I was wondering if you could give you opinion on the picture nomination to be a featured picture. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 16:15, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

أنا اليوميين إلي فاتوا كنت في عالم تاني. طمنا عنك؟ يا رب تكون عدت سليمة. ماتنزلش لوحدك الميدان. خليك على طول في مجموعة. لو المجموعة بتاعتك مش نازلة وإنت عايز تنزل, ممكن أبعتلق رقم ناس تنزل معاك. الوضع مريب فشخ. ولاد القحبة ناويين يخلصوا على الثوار وشكل الإسلاميين معاهم. عمر المتأسلميين ماهيتعلموا من غلطتهم مع جمال أو أنور. How is exams anyways? Hope your doing well. Stay safe brother :-) -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 21:31, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Lilian Wagdy & Mohamed Khayyal. Lilian is in Alex right now so you can call Khayyal. ليلي جدعة فشخ وخيال طيب فشخ. Tell them the Egyptian Liberal gave you the numbers. ليلي ممكن بقى تعرفك على جيجي وعلاء وحسام وشلة الفساد والأجنداة تبقى قلة مندسة أخر حاجة. The SCAF has to fucking go, No if(s) or but(s). Hosni was the head of the Egyptian army and we got rid of him and same will happen to the SCAF. المجلس حاجة والجيش. ونجيب مجلس رئاسي ونخلص من ميتين أهل الكاكي إلي حاكميين البلد من سنة 1952. ويكون عندنا أول حكم مدني بجد -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 00:24, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
Save the numbers anyway and delete them for wiki. I think next friday is gonna get ugly. أنا دايماً برهان على غباء العسكر. لو حد تاني مات ممكن المطالب تزيد بمجلس إنتقالي مدني. Glad that Salafis didnt decided not to show up last friday. كانوا عمليين جمعة الشرعية وتطبيق الحدود. I want believe that Mohammad Salim Al-Awa is beating Abdel Moneim Aboul Fotouh as the Islamist candidate. نفسي أفهم إزاي أحمد شفيق وعمر سيلمان لسه مادخلوش السجن. Let me know when you a bit of free time cuz I need some help with some articles. Also could you please place your opinion here? -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 07:16, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

على فكرة, أنا مين بين الإسلاميين كلهم, أظن أحسن واحد فيهم هو أبوالفتوح. العوا ده بتاع أمن الدولة وإسأل عنه في المسجد إلي كان بيخطب فيه. أبو الفتوح مع إختلافي معاه فكرباً إلا أنه راجل محترم جداً وإنت عارف إني مش إخوانجي بالمرة. أما بيقت التيار الإسلامي بصراحة مجانيين. I have been talking to Gamel Eid about suing Omar and شفيق في قضية جيالة قريب فالفلول مش هيكون عندهم مرشح. I think Amr might have a change of heart soon as well. Many actually might change their opinion about running once they start talking to ppl. If I was was to bet at the moment about who would win a majority in the next election, it would be a leftist collation. الحزب الشيوعي شغال الله ينور مع الفلاحيين وحزب العمال شغال مع العمال والنقابات. I would have opposed the picture as well; Im trying to fix it using different programs so wish be good luck. Got another picture that I need your opinion on here -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 01:55, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

إنت فاكر موضوع وفاء قسطنطين؟ الأخ العوا كان وراه و كان برضوا بتاع الأسلحة في الكنائس ومفجر قضية كاميليا. كان كل ما يبدأ حد يعمل أي حاجو ضد مبارك أو الحزب الوطني, الأخ كان بيفجر قضايا خرائية. قابلت مرة في الحسين وكان قاعد مع وائل قنديل وكان فاعد بيفتي في موضوع المسيحيين وإزاي إنهم عندهم مخطط غير معلوم لإثارة الفتنة للإطاحة بالمادة الثانية عن طريق عمل ثورة ضد مبارك وهاتك يا ضحك. He also flip flops, here is an example [4] [5]. أنا عارف إنك ممكن تكون معجب بيه لأنه كان عضو في حزب الوسط, بس بأمانة الراجل بضين فشخ. أما عمرو جموسى فمش محتاج أتكلم عليه بالمرة والبسطويسي ابنن الهبلة بتاع عسكرة الدولة وإنه الجيش يحمي الدستور. I honestly think the presidential election will not matter because the parliament will write the constitution and will most likely turn egypt into a parliamentary republic while the president will be only a figure head. I also think that ElBaradei will win it; The Islamists, Liberals, Leftist dont mind him as much as the others.الإسلاميين هيزلوا بكره بس ضد الإعتصام والشعب بقى بيفهم حركاتهم على فكرة زي إحنا حركة إحنا كنا في الميدان من أول يوم والثورة قامت علشان النظام كان بيظلم الإخوان. دول هيشوفوا أيام سودة في الفترة إلي جاية. أكبر عدو الإسلاميين هيوجهوه هو كلامه الأهبل بأمانة (عزة صناديق وكلام الحويني عن الحل الإقتصادي لمصر هيكون بغزو أوربا وكلام الإخوان الفاشي عن الأخ لازم يتجوز إخت من الإخوان علشان يكونوا عائلة إخوانية وغيرهم من الكلام الحلو). The more they speak, the more likely people wont vote for them :D على العموم, إتصل بكره على ليلي لو نازل لوحدك وحتى مع ناس علشان تتعرف على الشلة وتكونوا بلطجية مه بعضيكوم -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 01:10, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

You need to join the group "Fokkak Men Ahlak" :D الاخوان عماليين بيتخنقوا علشان عايزين منصة لوحدة كبيرة فشخ والناس مش عايزية إلا منصة واحدة. U really need to join twitter ya ibny. you finished your exams? ملكش حجة بقى -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 03:13, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

كلمت مينا نجيب يعملك فيديو عن العوابعض الحقائق عن العوا. The sit-in is amazing, remind me of the early days of the revolution. Im glad you liked Khayyal. I think you will love lili :-) شرف فاقد الأمل وبصراحة أنا عايزيه يمشي ونجيب أحمد زويل :D Sharaf didnt stand against the SCAF before, he aint gonna do it now. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 09:09, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
You should always take information from me at face value :D Sharaf is not the target (at least I hope he is not). I think ppl will support the idea of a parliamentary democratic republic بدل النظام الرئاسي. the problem is ppl dont understand what the برلمان should do ده غير إنه جزء كبير من أعضاء مجلس الشعب تعليمه إبتدائي. The SCAF needs to fucking go. الثورة كانت ضد شرعية 73 و52 so they have no right being in power. موضوع المجلس الرئاسي كان مطروح من أول أيام الثورة علشان العسكر ما يحمكش ومكنش ينفع يبقى فيه إنتخابات بس أنا رأي إنه الموضع إختلف لمى شرف جيه من الميدان. الفكرة بتاعتك من بنات أفكاري. أنا بقالي فترة بأحاول أقنع الناس إنه شرف لا بيحل ولا بيربط, المجلس الكل في الكل, بذات بعد البيان الدستوري. فلو المجلس أعطى صلاحياته لشرف وساب الحكم, يبقى هنخلص من حكم العسكر once and for all. The military trials will not end until we have a civilian running the country. الموضع الأن عامل زي لعبة الشترنج, إن ممكن تاكل حصان (شرف) أو تاكل الوزير (العسكر) والشعب لازم يقرر إنه عايز يحكم نفسه أو بتحكم عليه. -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 08:08, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

ITN Egyptian RevolutionEdit

مبروك :D I dont think they are gonna make anyone fall أو هيتم الإطاحة بالإستاذ ويتقال عليه فلول وضد الثورة :D الشعب ركب يا شريف. Man, I wish I can get back to Tahrir بس الشغل بيشتغلي. I was supposed to meet Sharaf on his trip to the gulf but I didnt get thhe chance كنت عايز أزبطة :D غنت قلة مندسة من زمان بس كدة الوضع بقى رسمي I will follow you and will send you more followers وأعرفك على كم محرض ومحرضة. SandMonkey is awesome. بما إنك خلصت إمتحانات يبقى هحتاجك هنا يا جميل. I have few things that I need your help with. so lemme know if you are in -- The Egyptian Liberal (talk) 08:19, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Need Help in the Arabic script pageEdit

Dear Sir, i have been following some of your work on wikipedia. I am facing some troubles that i think you have met while editing the page on Badr operation. I have been editing the page on Arabic script by adding many photos that serve to demonstrate the languages that use the Arabic script. I have recently added (to wikimeia commons) from flicker a photo that demonstrate the usage of Arabic script in writing some Jewish Holy books in Trakai Island Castle - Lithuania. see my talk page. Flicker- Karaim language in Arabic script near Menorah (Hanukkah) - Trakai Island Castle - Lithuania2.jpg It has been deleted by AnonMoos may be due to "cultural" beliefs bias. see my talk page. Also VanIsaac as he said on the talk page of Arabic script page is going to "remove the rest of those images". I would appreciate very much any help to make the page truely Arab fair.--Ashashyou (talk) 13:27, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Original Barnstar
Thank you for your numerous contributions related to the 1973 war and other Egypt-related topics. I really enjoyed reading your articles and you are indeed one of the finest Egyptian editors around here. It's a shame that I never had the chance to encounter you before. Hope you come back soon.

Images copyrightsEdit

Hello Sherif,

My name is Mohamed Samy, I am a mobile applications designer and developer. Currently, I am working on a mobile application for the revolution. Lately I saw that the regime is trying to delete everything related the revolution so I wanted to create an application that will show the timeline of the revolution. My main goal of this application is that I want to say that we still remember.

I would like to use pictures from this page, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_Egyptian_Revolution_of_2011 in my application. Please tell me if it ok with you and what should I do for the copyrights :). If you would like to see the design of the application I would be more than glad to take feedback from you.

I am looking forward to hear from you.

Kind regards, Mohamed Samy — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mohamedsabdlnby (talkcontribs) 20:20, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

March Madness 2017Edit

G'day all, please be advised that throughout March 2017 the Military history Wikiproject is running its March Madness drive. This is a backlog drive that is focused on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • updating the project's currently listed A-class articles to ensure their ongoing compliance with the listed criteria
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various task force pages or other lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the military history scope will be considered eligible. More information can be found here for those that are interested, and members can sign up as participants at that page also.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 March and runs until 23:59 UTC on 31 March 2017, so please sign up now.

For the Milhist co-ordinators. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) & MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 07:24, 26 February 2017 (UTC)
