On the Shoura Council Blaze!

Posted in English, Reflections, Revolutionary and Politician at 11:55 pm by Rou...

A shocking scene it was to watch on TV fire eating away the old building of Shoura Council and turning it into almost ruins, with some fire engines spraying water, while the military helicopters hovered over the Nile, filling up water into containers they carried, and flying back to the parliament buildings to unload the water over the destructive blaze in desperate trials to put down the flames…


Seriously Rabena satar that the fire took place at this particular time during the two parliaments’ summer break, or else, it would have been a real catastrophe…


I cannot believe the level of irresponsibility this country has reached… the disaster is not only because they failed to put down the fire for more than 6 hours… nor for the fact that the Shoura Council building is one of the most beautiful old buildings in downtown… the real tragedy is the fact that this happened in the first place… I mean… when the highest two legislative authority premises in Egypt lack reliable fire fighting systems… omal bass beyoot elghalaba ye7sal feeha eih!


Where are we heading to bass…?

I really wonder heya el nass dee 7atfoo2 emta!


Rabena Yostor!





The interesting thing is that I was sitting in Alian le Notre Merghany street in Heliopolis a few hours ago, and right infront of me the metro caught fire!!

    Iy would be much better if this fire tool place while all council’s memeber are in there..they would actually do this country a favour for once in their lifetime.
    Nothing to seem working right in this country!!!

    Indeed nothing is working right in this country… but then again, i wouldn’t wish they were there… I mean… it’s like looking @ what the jews do in Palestine, and then wondering where’s Hitler when we need him the most… This is not a correct way of thinking… Dear, after all, these are human beings that you wish they were there burning!

    However, in all cases, what happened yesterday is literally a scandal… yesterday when i was talking with my brother, i was wondering if it’s gonna reach any of the surrounding places… when a simple thought crossed my mind… Do you think eno if a fire started in the American Embassy, or the AUC… it would reach this stage? hehe… the answer was a simple NO… it will be put down before anybody notice aslan… why… becasue “such places” are well designed and well secured to face anything like that… I seriously cannot believe how on earth does a place like that lack a simple fire fighting system… !!!!

    وَاتَّقُوا يَوْماً تُرْجَعُونَ فِيهِ إِلَى اللَّهِ ثُمَّ تُوَفَّى كُلُّ نَفْسٍ مَا كَسَبَتْ وَهُمْ لا يُظْلَمُونَ
