We crash another Egyptian news server

El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is unreachable.

Dead link:

First time. Second time. This makes the third time.

UPDATE: Still a dead link, but the broken page now just says "HTTP/1.1 500 Server Error".

UPDATE: It's working again, and El Naschie's latest column is up. English or Arabic. It's about Ahmed Zaki Badr, the new Minister of Education. El Naschie calls for him to have what powers he needs to do his job, and approves of the job he did as president of Ain Shams University.

I see there's a We hate Ahmed Zaki Badr page on Facebook.
This caricature is from Al-Ahram.

  1. Don't worry the great man keeping his articles
    in Rosa Al-Youssef on his arabic website. Till now they are eight column are stored.


  2. That Web site has lots of things that are probably of interest, but can't be run through Google translate because they are .jpg format.


  3. It's down again! World's worst IT department.

  4. It's back. And so is his April 29 column. «stumping» Cultural. English or Arabic.

    I can't read Arabic but I'll bet this was written by the Great Man himself, not his literate ghost writer.

    He says Egyptian intellectuals should "help the leadership and vision to lead public opinion" rather than chanting about democracy and change, stumping, and campaigning. Egypt is the most democratic country in the region, he says.

  5. His April 30 column is up. Chicken or the Egg. English or Arabic. El Naschie talks about the importance of funding education. It's one of his standard spiels. Really, the man seldom says anything new.

  6. The Sunday, May 2, 2010 column is up. Bidders on the rights of workers. English or Arabic. He talks about May Day.

  7. Monday, May 3, 2010. Strikes and the interests of the Egyptian economy.
    English or Arabic.

    El Naschie says striking workers damage the Egyptian economy and should be dealt with strictly. He begins by reminding us for the fifteenth time that his father was an army officer.
