3. Egyptian Surveillance drowns in Facebook discussions

There is no end in sight of Facebook discussions in a society that struggles with religious, political, and class issues. Conservations ranging from the usage of wedding veils and lingerie; the announcement of the Nobel Prize winner; a baby crying next to an ISIS fighter; the search for the truth; university tests; the gloating about dead Muslim Brothers, or the brutal slaughter of ‘Īd al-Adhá. (Sara ‘Alâm, al-Yawm al-Sābi’a, Oct. 22).

Summary
Article summary: 

The following article is extracted from the ENAWU forum, an international project begun in 2008. We are cleaning the forum contributions of the ENAWU network. Contributions of interest are now placed in Arab-West Report.

 AWR intern Dilan was shocked when he saw the differences between media reporting about Abu Fana and the numerous interviews AWR had carried out in the area. One reader wrote that we should not expect information to change people, only God can do so. This is certainly true but good information needs to be at hand. Lack of information, lack of transparency makes it possible to manipulate. Many people are manipulated.

Summary
Article summary: 

The following article is extracted from the ENAWU forum, an international project begun in 2008. We are cleaning the forum contributions of the ENAWU network. Contributions of interest are now placed in Arab-West Report.

Paul Gordan Chandler served as Episcopal priest and rector of St. John’s Church in Maadi, a suburb of Cairo, Egypt, between 2003 and 2013. I have known Paul Gordon Chandler for all these years.

Chandler’s book describes the conversion of Syrian national Mazhar Mallouhi (1935), born and raised into a Muslim family and who became a follower of Jesus Christ without leaving Islam. This would seem to many Muslims and Christians a contradiction but not to Mallouhi and Paul Gordon Chandler. The book feeds into the missionary thought of some Evangelical groups who are hoping, praying and working towards converting Muslims to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord without joining one of the traditional churches. Paul Gordon Chandler does not refer to this in his book but he was and is certainly aware of this way of thinking in Christian missionary circles. The book describes the life history and changes in the belief system of Mazhar  I asked Dr. Michael Burslem, a long time friend of Arab-West Report, retired medical doctor and member of the Episcopal Church in Canada to write a book review. I have added in 2014 some additional information between brackets.

The Center for Arab-West Understanding’s first main activity after its foundation was strongly opposing Dutch MP Geert Wilder’s film “Fitna.” We wrote several reports criticizing his film, organized the visit of a Dutch Muslim-Christian delegation to Egypt and wrote a petition to Dutch Parliament. http://www.cawu.org/?Activities_and_Projects:Projects:No_More_Fitna

Summary
Article summary: 

Interesting is to see the Syrian Christian response to questions asked by a German teacher of religious education in Darmstadt, Germany. The Syrian Christian asks to distinguish between Islam as a religion and political Islam. She also thinks in terms of teaching Islam for all, Muslim and non-Muslim, instead of teaching Islam only to Muslims. These are good questions to be raised.

Summary
Article summary: 

There are continuously discussions about people of one culture feeling superior of those of another culture. The discussion initiated by Dieter Mueller-Ehrhart addresses a subject in which this superiority is expressed but as Egyptian intern Abrar el-Ghannam wrote, ultimately media in both the West and the Arab world should stop this type of reporting and provide more profound information about people of other cultures.
