Rest in Peace…
Today is a sad sad day for all Egyptians. Today, February the 1st, 68 people lost their lives because of a stupid football game.
Today, Al-Masry fans savagely attacked Al-Ahly fans and players after the final whistle of their league match. Today, 68 Egyptians (uptil now) have died. Today, well… Today is a truly awful day for any Egyptian.
To any Al-Masry fan that took part in these events and is responsible for any death that took place. I hope you live the rest of your life feeling guilty for what you did.
To the Interior Ministry, to all the “security” forces inside the stadium that watched as the events unfolded infront of their very eyes without even moving a muscle, I hope you are happy. I hope you’re happy knowing you could’ve stopped this massacre from happening but still decided to be an observer.
I really can’t say much more about what happened. I’m fighting back the tears. I’ll leave you with some videos to see for yourself how sad our beloved country has become.
My thoughts are with those who lost their lives and their families, Allah yar7amhoum. One can’t help but think there’s more to this than meets the eye though.
Hello Hany Hello kazi…. It’s a sad day my prayers go out to all the famIlies that lost loved ones. But it was only a matter of time before something like this happened.Kazi I disagree sometimes things are exactly as they appear. The government will hint at those mysterious foreign hands the revolutionaries will claim it was baltagaya sent by the regime or scaf…..There is no great conspiracy here. Unfortunately there is no one to blame but ourselves. There is no accountability no authority that the people fear or respect. We cannot leave It up to people’s morals. There needs to be law and order and Even though I don’t agree with all the militaries actions or tactics so far they are the only ones capable of securing the streets and holding people accountable even if they lose credability the country’s security is more important than the mIlitary’s popularity.
Thank you Kazi, a gentleman as always.
The problem is we’ll almost certainly never find out the truth. There are so many theories (most of them could be valid) being thrown around right now that one can’t tell which is the true one.
What is obvious though is the lack of movement by the “security” forces during the massacre. Why they didn’t move is anybody’s guess. My educated one is because they still feel hard done by for 25th of January. They’re trying to send out a message that they were protecting us and now they’re showing us what will happen if they don’t. It’s a stupid and filthy move but it is what to be expected by those idiots.
The military/SCAF aren’t going to risk killing people in order to hold onto power, they’re not that naiive.
My prayers go to all egyptians who lost loved ones that day.
Its not just a sad day for for football. its also a sad day for all arabs (muslims and everything else). that shows me that we have along way to go for a society which is truly civilized, im afraid all of us here will not live until that day, maybe our grand children!
its a shame, i dont get it. see that 5min video hany posted? at 1:58 a whole bunch of policemen just staying there, that tells me a) people have no respect for police/state or b) this was controlled by certain gov members or even other political forces to achieve certain goals…i dont get it, it must be like i think, it was too well organized!
The police are powerless in Egypt now. They have a stigma the public have no fear or respect for them. A new polIce force must formed even if it’s only window dressing change the uniforms tell the public it’s a new force we have millions of young and unemployed that will gladly join once you make it a respectable position. We can continue to blame everything on some big conspiracy it’s common sense millions of unemployed and no law and order leads to only one thing every time and everywhere in the world. Atman I respectfully disagree it has nothing to do with arabs bring uncivilized anywhere in the world you have young unemployed and no law and order you will have the same result especially after they were called revolutionary heros
I’m sorry Hany I was so angry and sad I forgot to ask you how are you and how is your family. I hope all is well and your staying safe. My friends are telling me that they are all carrying guns from fear of thieves I don’t know if thier exaggerating but they are also telling things aren’t as bad as I’m hearing as well. They are upset and shocked at how well the Islamists did in the elections but it was pretty obvious they would do well very well funded and very organized. Let’s hope being in power changes thier political philosophy and they focus on jobs and the economy rather than what this person is wearing or that person is drinking. Inchalla khier Inchalla your safe and prosperous.

Bahaa, thank you, I’m fine too but there’s this fear that any second you could get stolen in the streets. It’s true that everybody’s carrying guns for their safety now, the thieves are having the time of their lives in Egypt, the police are doing nothing to stop them.
As for the Islamists, they targeted the poor areas in Egypt and left out Cairo. They had 60 million in their pocket, it’s a smart move but if you watch the parliament you’ll find that it’s full of clowns at the moment. Some of the Islamists are a disgrace. Hopefully, the new president is going to dissolve this parliament and get a better one with more of the likes of Dr. Amr Hamzawy.
I’m glad to hear your ok please be careful. Yes I saw parliament it was really sad. All the intellectuals we have in Egypt and that is what we are left with is a bunch of beards each trying to be more religious than the other. Very sad. I hope we are not stuck with them for the next 5 years.. You know the brotherhood has done many good things during the years many great social programs and that is what religious groups are supposed to do. Leave the politics alone there are too many religions and too many interpretations of each to have any group from any religion use their understanding of their religion to run our political system and our economy.
Sorry to only write here now. Really feel terrible about this Hany. My thoughts go out to you and all Egyptians (except for the assholes who seem to have pre-meditated these attacks).
Tunisian players wanted to wear black armbands as a sign of respect but Caf wouldn’t let us because they said it was a political statement. Then they let Ghana wear black armbands for Annan’s deceased mother. Caf is stupid…
Anyways, not the point but just wanted to say I feel for you guys and what happened.

hany / bahaa / kazi
great to (read) you all again. I hope you + yours are all well.
I decided to peep in after wednesday’s tragedy.
we’re all deeply affected about this dramatic event.
Im out of words really.
however, I have a deep conviction that this was a set up. This is imho an execution. too long to go through it here as it’s pointless right now.
i just saw an evidence today though that floored me. I cld email it to whoever wants to see it (or can we post jpegs here?)
HAny, if you ever pass near maadi, may be we can have a coffee or whatever. would love to finally meet you.
all the best to you all

Hello Webmaster, I noticed that http://egypt.worldcupblog.org/uncategorized/rest-in-peace.html is ranking pretty low on Google and has a low Google PageRank. Now the Google PageRank is how Google is able to see how relevant your webpage is compared to all the other webpages online, if you cannot rank high at the top of Google, then you will NOT get the traffic you need. Now usually trying to get to the top of Google costs hundreds if not thousands of dollars and very highly optimized targeted marketing campaigns that takes a team of experts months to achieve. However, we can show you how to get to the top of Google with no out of pocket expenses (free traffic), no stupid ninja tricks, no silly mind control techniques, and this will be all white hat with no blackhat software or tactics that could possibly land you on bad terms with Google and put you in the dreaded “Google Sandbox”. We’ll show you how to easily capture all the targeted traffic you need, for free, multiple ways to land fast (not months) first-page rankings in Google and other major search engines (Bing, Yahoo, Ask, etc), even show you strategies on how to earn daily commissions just try Ranking Top of Google, please check out our 5 minute video.
Rami, thanks for your condolences, yeah I heard about the CAF thing. The worst run federation in the World, I’ll never forget how they didn’t allow Al-Ahly to register a player instead of Mohamed Abdelwahab when he died. It’s run by a bunch of incompetent bastards and this last move was a new low from them. Hard luck for Tunisia by the way but the hard work is finally paying off. I remember telling you in 2010 that that team was the start of something big and hopefully there will be more to follow next year.
hicham, long time no see, good to hear from you again. I’m still not convinced it was a set-up, the masry fans are that stupid and violent, I wouldn’t put it past them. I’ve talked personally to Dr. Ihab Ali, and he told me he isn’t really convinced it’s a conspiracy theory (I’d take his opinion seriously seeing as he was present at the massacre and saw 6 people die infront of him AND managed to save more than 20). You can send me the jps and I’ll post them here if you want no problem.
I’m in Maadi everyday from 5 p.m, next to house of donuts on the korniche, if you are free, I look forward to meeting up anyday of the week, except friday and saturday.
hovs power has aylwas been that he does what is currently good, the best. i think hes finally taken a little too much from the cookie jar to let this get away..
75 dead for a soccer match, that’s really sad!
it was awsome how the egyptian revolution started from facebook and succeeded, everybody supported it as they are against hack someones facebook account (which is illegal and unwanted) same for soccer, we all want peaceful matches and we are definitly againt what happpened in BOUR SAID , peace from France!
