Interview with General al-Sisi, the leader of the Glorious Egyptian Army - 'We are here to protect the people - this is a caring type of liberalism not like the cruel western one'
Since the Corrective Operation to Unseat the President (COUP) in Egypt, one name has been on everyone’s lips, General Abdul-Fattah al-Sisi the leader of the Glorious Egyptian Army©. It’s true a few were cursing him, but most honourable citizens of Egypt and the other Arab countries were behind the General’s historical corrective manoeuvre against the Muslim Brotherhood. General al-Sisi embodies the values of Arab liberalism: manliness, strength, striking with a hand of steel and, above all, a musical name that rhymes. In his attempt to reach out to Arab liberals, the General in his wisdom decided to grant us this exclusive interview as one of the leading publications for Liberal Communist Secularist Arabs. We are very grateful to the Beacon of Arab Secularism for this.

Do Arabs Cry For Their Children Too?
By Tom Mcnamara -------------- Once more tragedy befalls America. But this time the tragedy is even more bitter due to the fact that such a large number of young children were involved. A gunman, identified as Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people, 20 of them children – all between the ages of 5 and 10 – at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on the 14th of December. The attack ended with the gunman committing suicide. It was the Nation’s second deadliest school shooting. Most people can’t imagine the evil and insanity needed to drive a person to commit such a heinous act. The murder of innocent people is reprehensible, but it is even more so when carried out on the most vulnerable elements of our society, children. Most disturbing of all is the well planned, deliberate and determined manner in which the murders appear to have been carried out. Early reports state that the gunman was highly accurate, leaving only one wounded survivor alive at the school.

The issue relates to Julian Assange, Wikileaks, and the Republic of Ecuador. Mind you, it was assumed in the entire American continent, Australia, and Europe that the world was the same as ten years ago. But the world does not work that way anymore.
