Publications

Mbarak Il Dwaila. Not a big fan of his. Cannot care less to what he says or thinks. Have my differences, but..

That was an introduction by the way. Mbarak Il Dwaila seems to be a prominent figure in society, doesn't he? In the sense that anything and everything he says; would have -rakzaw- MOST of the newspaper articles addressing his saying over the next week or so.

Get this straight. I am not addressing what Il Dwaila said, rather what has been addressed to his saying.

Background: He said "el jenseya hal ayam hababha 7ag Kumar o Metwaly". Ofcourse, it was taken out of context by those who had nothing better to do than just whine and bitch over and over, day after day.

From that phrase (which was taken out of context, I insist), the writers decided to settle their debts with the guy.

Which brings me to my main point. If the writers have nothing better to do than just wait for someone to say something, 3ashan yetssayedon 3alaih, what good is the 'Publications' law that is in its final stages now? Repeating the same news in different words? Madri laish.

The good old "freedom of speech" cliche makhoth khairha, le3baw gairha. In a moment of honesty with oneself, one would realize that there isn't much use that the Publications law can be put to.

Sure okay, my bad. "Shakelha 7elo" and it gives you something to brag about (nevertheless not understand).

By the way, personally I find it amusing that the law has now bounced back so they can alter some of its articles. One of which gives them the right to reject any "application", without having to give any reasons. Igzarat, wallah gaseen 3alaikom.

edit: From 7asan Il 3eesa's article today:

إذا أصر مجلس الوزراء على ان يكون المرجع الأول والأخير في تظلمات رفض إصدار الصحف دون القضاء «فلا طبنا ولا غدا الشر»، فلا معنى لحرية الصحافة متى كان أمرها مرهونا لمزاج السلطة التنفيذية، تعطي التراخيص لمن تشاء وتمنعها عمن تشاء، فلا حقوق ولا ضوابط للأفراد غير مزاج السلطة ومشيئتها، وهي الخصم والحكم في النهاية.

Gayelekom il mas'ala 3endehom i6laabah, bas ma7ad yesma3 el7achi.

  • Don't you think this is a dupe (duplicate) of the democracy post?

    One reason I don't care about politics is that if I do, all I get is frustration, headaches & more chance of heart attacks & high blood pressure!

  • mbh which democracy post?
    if ur referring to the one i wrote a while back about the "sharwat aswaat tamreer 7egog el mar'a".. kelish ma lehom shegel eb ba3ath

    this discusses mainly how certain ppl r cheering on for the publications law (ganon el ma6bo3at wel nashr, wel mafroth y3ni including 7oryat elta3beer) .. and im wondering why those certain ppl r cheering the law on.. espicially when they dont have anything to say

    7oreyat elta3beer ma ta3ny fethaye7 elnas w gelat eladab

  • Temetwir, do you really believe that even if the law is passed, people would be allowed to write the truth?

    I doubt it.

    Until the head falls, the body will suffer.
