El Naschie, Swar al-Dahab, and King Abdullah

This article has two parts. The second part, to us the most interesting, is about El Naschie being asked by the Saudi King Abdullah to set up a nanotechnology center. The first part is about Abdel Rahman Swar al-Dahab's praise for Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Swar al-Dahab (سوار الذهب) is a former Sudanese president. Google insists on translating his name literally as "gold bracelet" and I have gone through and fixed that and made some other small tweaks to the computer translation below to make it easier to read. Interesting parts are green. My comments are red.

Sudan's former president, Abdel Rahman Swar al-Dahab: Mubarak's policy position from the Gaza crisis, full of wisdom

Former President Abdel-Rahman Swar al-Dahab praised the role of President Hosni Mubarak during the crisis of the Gaza Strip, pointing out that the Egyptian position was wise on this politically significant issue. He said Mubarak is not only a leader of humanity but in addition full of political wisdom.

Swar al-Dahab told the «National Day» [Al Watany Al Youm, an official newspaper of the ruling NDP] that the Palestinians condemn Egypt for this noble position.

And Swar al-Dahab said the solutions envisaged for the Palestine crisis called for Mubarak to talk on the necessity for unity between the Palestinian factions and unification of the base, and to aim to make the Palestinian cause the basis for the right answer on this question, pointing out that the weakness of cooperation and solidarity among people in the disaster led to the current situation and lost the case in favor of the second party.

Swar al-Dahab said regarding the provision of aid to the Palestinian people, one must talk about specific people and and countries whose charitable organizations can provide aid to the Palestinian brothers.

And regarding the situation in Darfur Swar al-Dahab confirmed that international forces, including the Egyptian military forces, play a significant role in creating relative calm on the ground in Darfur, pointing out that the expected selection of the people of the south after three years of unity or secession from the north can not be predicted now because things do not predict anything specific. However, there is trade cooperation between the north and south, and the sharing of power, there is President of the Republic from the north and his first deputy from the south.

Swar al-Dahab said the role of the African Union and Arab countries is to contain the crisis after the worst.

Al-Azhar and Swar al-Dahab he said his leading role in the dissemination of true religion, a kiss from hungry to learn more about Islam, the center and wait for him more. [?]

He praised the role of Egyptian scientists in the renaissance of Sudan, pointing out that the world is the great Egyptian Farouk El-Baz discovered six months ago, fresh water lake is one of the largest lakes of the Arab world and Africa is closely linked between Egypt and Sudan, where it stretches two-thirds of them in Egypt and a third in the Sudan.

Swar al-Dahab called on all Arab countries for Investment in Sudan and the exploitation of its resources for the benefit of everyone.

Saudi Arabia chooses Dr. El Naschie to establish largest research center for the global nano in the region

An Egyptian scientist Dr. Mohamed El Naschie went to Saudi Arabia for starting the task of establishing the King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Institute of «nano technology development». The Custodian of the Two Holy King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz has issued a decree to establish the center on his own initiative and on the recommendation of the Minister of Public Education and the President of the University of King Abdulaziz ibn Saud, and the King agreed on the choice of an Egyptian scientist Dr. Mohamed El Naschie for this scientific mission. [El Naschie's case against Nature will undoubtedly blame their article for causing this deal to fall through.]

Dr. El Naschie said the Saudi monarch asked him to establish the Center according to the latest global technology systems at the highest level in order to compete with research centers in Europe and America.

Dr. Mohamed El Naschie said that Saudi Arabia has provided everything needed in the way of physical and human resources necessary to achieve this great project of scientific research to serve the Kingdom and humanitarian needs in the region.

The final composition of the Supreme Council for Science and Technology in Egypt had been devoid of the name of Dr. Mohamed El Naschie, which raised many questions about the exclusion of such a national treasure.

Thanks to Zahy for pointing this article out. He posted the original Arabic of the interesting part in this comment. The article comes from which, however, is a broken link at this moment. In fact all of Al Watany Al Youm is down: is a broken link. A copy exists in Google's cache.

Judging from the content, the article probably dates from sometime in 2008.

  1. El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Monday, November 29. Courage of «Emile Zola». Original Arabic or Google's English translation.

    El Naschie drops names as always: Émile Zola, Bertolt Brecht, Jean-Paul Sartre, Rolf Hochhuth. He tells of Émile Zola bravely defending Alfred Dreyfus from a false charge of treason based on antisemitism. And he tells us that Dreyfus means three feet in German (drei Fuß).

  2. El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Tuesday, November 30. Before it is too late. Original Arabic or Google's English translation.

    El Naschie continues yesterday's column about Émile Zola. He calls on Israel to "release the prisoners, the oppressed Palestinians who crowd the prisons of Israel. I ask them to do so on behalf of all the suffering experienced by the Jewish people in Europe at the hands of fascist governments. I ask for this on behalf of the Jewish Scriptures and I ask for this also on behalf of Emile Zola, who risked everything for the sake of the truth."
