Sweets are served to children and adults alike on Moulid
Al-Nabi, the Birthday of Prophet Mohamed. The delicacies are savoured by rich and poor. Colourful  delights wet the appetites of the populace eager for some sweetness in their lives 


Quotes from newspapers:

Vision 2025
“The beginning of a new year is a chance for reflection on personal as well as national matters. Let us hope this will be a year of work and change. The first step towards that is to draw a comprehensive vision for dealing with all the problems facing Egypt according to a priority system that covers the next 10 years, up to 2025.”
Mohamed Shouman, Al-Youm Al-Sabei

Achievement 2014
“The Governor of the Central Bank of Egypt, Hisham Ramez, considered selling the certificates of the Suez Canal as the greatest achievement of 2014. However, the banks’ success in meeting the needs of the market and paying back Egypt's commitments is no less important.”
Al-Shorouk

Deep sadness
“Today, I remember Camp David with deep sadness as Gaza has become an  emirate independent of the West Bank, Syria suffers war in its cities and villages, Lebanon is baffled by its various sects and political parties and Iraq is suffering from conflicting doctrines and beliefs.”
Alaa Oraiby, Al-Wafd

Housing the revolution
“The National Council for Caring for the Families of the Martyrs earmarked 1,000 new housing units for the families of the injured and martyrs of the revolution.”

“A political activist receives a 15-year sentence because he protested against laws that restrict rights and freedoms, and that is not an issue for the legislative authority... but the Port Said spy accused in a case of national security, having confessed to living with a Mossad prostitute, receives a 10-year sentence, then we are seeing a significant drop in the credibility and the legitimacy of the regime.”
Hazem Hosni

“Mr President, the present track implies Egypt’s consent and acknowledgement of Ethiopian hegemony over the Nile resources and consequently its right to build dams without any consideration for international regulations. It looks as if Ethiopia owns the water whereas water is a grant from God to all the states in which rivers flow. Water used to reach Egypt even before Ethiopia came into existence.”
