To all Egyptians hoping to spare this nation strife

We are a group of Egypt’s youth who had rejected the bitter reality that we had been experiencing under the ruling party’s regime, with all its symbols and policies, which have led the country to total collapse, oppression and frustration.

We do not belong to any existing political or religious currents and did not have prior agendas, but believed that certain reforms need to be made.

We were among those who went out and demonstrated in the days of honor 25 and 28 January [2011] and the March of Millions on 1 February in Tahrir Square. We agree with the people on the necessity of change and a peaceful transfer of power.

We sense the profound need for unifying our front in order to preserve our rights and the gains we have secured in the last 10 days. We also sense the lack of clarity on how the change we seek could come about and the need on working to develop consensus on the concrete steps for a transfer of power that would be satisfactory to the demonstrators and wide sectors of Egyptian society for moving forward. This need is ever more pressing due to the trying days of anxiety and absence of security the country has experienced due to the treason the Egyptian people have been subjected to and whose intentional organizers must be brought to justice.

This statement is based on the pulse of Tahrir and the demands circulated there reflecting the visions of these reformers and converge on the items articulated by Dr. Ahmed Zeweil and other reformers and that they point clearly to the desire for a “civil” state and rule of law, accountability, separation of powers, transparent elections and that the steps towards this are best articulated by Dr. Ahmed Zeweil’s letter to the Egyptian people.

Therefore we call for the following:

• Guarantees for achieving the peaceful transfer of power in the coming period.

• Agreement on the clear vision and concrete demands articulated in Dr. Ahmed Zuweil’s letter and outlining practically applicable steps such as:

I.          The Constitution: A constitutional assembly of wise men should be assembled to draft a new constitution, based on liberty, human rights, and the orderly transfer of power.

II.          The independence of the courts must be guaranteed.

III.          Free and fair elections must be conducted for the upper and lower houses of parliament and for the presidency, overseen by the independent judiciary.

IV.          Government: A new transitional government of national unity must be appointed. The military must intervene to keep order and to protect the nation in this transitional period.

• Delegating the following names to speak on our behalf and continue to consult with groups of demonstrators as a nucleus of a negotiation committee, enter into dialogue with Mr. Omar Suleiman as a representative of the existing regime, and take all necessary measures and decisions to deliver the country from the current crisis and put forward a vision for the future.

These are names that we believe: enjoy very broad based support based on our consultation with other youth and protestors; present balanced visions; and represent different political currents, without any one dominating the others.

We ask those who agree with us to sign this statement.

Recommended Names for the Nucleus of the Negotiation Committee:

• Dr. Ahmad Kamal Abul Magd

• Dr. Ahmed Zewail

• Mr. Naguib Sawiris

• Mr. Ambassador Amr Moussa

• Mr. Gawdat Al-Malt

• Dr. Usama Al-Ghazali Harb

• Dr. Amr Hamzawy

• Mr. Muneer Fakhri Abdul Nur

• Mr. Mahmoud Saad

Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. What it will do is what some call ‘turning to sugar’. In reality, honey is always honey. However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time

it will “crystallize”.  When this happens loosen the lid, boil some water and sit the honey container in the hot water, but turn off the heat and let it liquefy naturally. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. This will kill the enzymes in the honey.


Cinnamon and Honey

Bet the drug companies won’t like this one getting around. Facts on honey and cinnamon:


It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases.  Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a ‘Ram Ban’ (very effective) medicine for

all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without side effects for any kind of diseases. Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, when it is taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm even diabetic patients. Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, in its issue dated 17 January,1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon, as researched by western scientists:



Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply it on bread instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack.

Also, those who have already had an attack, when they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart

beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.



Arthritis patients may take daily (morning and night) one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week (out of the 200 people so treated) practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain — and within a month, most all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis now started walking without pain.



Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder..



Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water given to a cholesterol patient was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours.  As mentioned for arthritic patients, when taken three times a

day,  any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.



Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and, clear the sinuses.



Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from its root.



According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that when Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.



Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacterial  and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles (where DNA is contained) to fight bacterial and viral diseases.



Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food is eaten relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.



A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ‘Ingredient’ which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.



Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Use four teaspoons of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of water and boil to make a tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans increase and even a 100 year old will start performing the chores of a 20-year-old..



When throat has a tickle or is raspy, take one tablespoon of honey and sip until gone.  Repeat every three hours until throat is without symptoms.



Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it off the next morning with warm water. When done daily for two weeks, it removes all pimples from the root.



Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.



Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast and on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. When taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.



Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder three times a day for one month .



Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, even when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, when taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00P.M., the vitality of the body increases within a week.



People of South America, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water first thing in the morning so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.



Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!

US Marines Headed To Egypt

Senior US Marine Says “Multiple Platoons” Are Headed To Egypt

By Nicholas Carlson | Feb. 5, 2011

A senior member of the US Marine corps is telling people “multiple platoons” are deploying to Egypt, a source tells us.

There is a system within the US Marines that alerts the immediate families of high-ranking marines when their marine will soon be deployed to an emergency situation where they will not be able to talk to their spouses or families.

That alert just went out, says our source.

This senior Marine told our source that the Pentagon will deploy “multiple platoons” to Egypt over the next few days and that the official reason will be ‘to assist in the evacuation of US citizens.”

Our source was told that “the chances they were going over there went from 70% yesterday to 100% today.”

We’re keeping these people anonymous because both would get in trouble for sharing this information with the press.

On Friday, the Pentagon announced it would move “U.S. warships and other military assets to make sure it is prepared in case evacuation of U.S. citizens from Egypt becomes necessary,” according the the LA Times.
