Sabah ElBalad program broadcasted on Sada ElBalad satellite channel highlighted on Sunday an article of Egyptian writer and journalist Elham AbolFateh، the managing editor of Akhbar Al Youm newspaper. The article is entitled “The execution of Sherine Abdel Wahab”.
In this article، AbolFateh expressed her appreciation for Editor-in-Chief of Akhbar al Youm newspaper، Amr el Khayat، for holding an interview with Cyprus President Nicos Anastaniadis، before the expected summit with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
The article said: I don’t agree with the execution of Sherine Abdel Wahab.. Yes she made a mistake.. she made a mistake in the right of the Nile، and in the right of Egypt، but previously، she has sung for Egypt and for the Nile.. In the same video where she made a mistake، she appears saying:” I am an Egyptian singer and I am proud of being from Egypt، the country of civilization”.. why we focused only on the part that contains this misleading humor and forgot what Sherine has done..why the Gallows were put everywhere.. if a singer makes a mistake، then the Gallows would be prepared for him..
If a presenter makes a mistake، then the Gallows would be prepared for him.. Sherine is a famous Egyptian singer from Al Qala’a district.. She loves her country's dust.. She also confirmed that through a statement of an official apology for the video that was recorded more than a year ago.. I will not wonder about the person behind the publication at the time of releasing her new album..is this the dishonest competition.. or the intended coincidence..
All of us are repeating her words، which she sang out of her heart، so they came to our hearts in beautiful national songs، such as: Balady..Ashat Misr.. Om Al Donia.. Mashrbtesh Mn Nilha.. the Egyptian voices on the scene are few، so why the execution of Sherine.. Angham may make a mistake..Amal Maher may make a mistake.. are they going to be executed as well.. then، who will be remained on the scene، only the Arab brothers will remain، all of them are good voices.
But we need the beautiful Egyptian identity and I suggest Sherine، and all her colleagues who have a big role and duty to lead a large campaign involving all our singers and artists and our TV and radio programs to protect the Nile like the Pharaohs.. the Pharaohs swore that they are protecting the Nile and protecting it from pollution and that it remains clean and beautiful. This behavior must return back to preserve our great river. It is indeed the lifeblood of the Egyptians.
Best respects and regards to Amr Al Khayat
Best respects and regards to Amr Al Khayat for his wonderful interview with Cypriot President Nikos Anastaseadis two days before President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s visit.. previously، we used to see our Editors-in-chief holding exclusive and important interviews.. Amr Al-Khayyat resumed this manner in Akhbar Al Youm edition released on Friday.. as he held two very important and distinguished interviews، the first with the Cypriot President while the second with the Speaker of Parliament there.. during these interviews، he raised all the issues and the questions that concern us.. I think these issues will be the focus of many topics discussed by the media and public opinion during the coming period.. The Cypriot president talked frankly، and I was impressed by his replies، especially when he said that Egypt is the bastion of stability in the region and also his talks about protecting the Cyprus border in the Mediterranean. It is a matter of concern to all Egyptians. The protection of the Cyprus border means preventing the theft of oil، as Egypt and Cyprus have suffered a lot from this theft. I was impressed by his announcement about a electricity connection project between Africa and Europe through Egypt and Cyprus.
I agree with and call for increasing the volume of trade exchange between the two countries، as this reflects the close relations and geographical proximity between them.
Moreover، His interview with Cypriot Parliament Speaker Demetris Syllouyris is no less important than his one with Cypriot president، especially following his assertion and support، which means the support of the entire Cypriot people for Egypt in its war against terrorism.
I also liked his talks about the World Youth Forum and the support of Cyprus for its continuation in the coming years.
Best respects and regards to Amr Al Khayat who brought back the era of excellence and exclusivity to Akhbar Al Youm newspaper.
