Two Years Without Trial in Max Security: Will the Scorpion Release Sabry on 16 April?

[Sabry in his engineering job, 2013. Photo by Mounir, Sabry’s brother.]

In August 2016, Sabry’s brother sprayed an image of Sabry’s face and bandaged limbs, clasped between the claws of an ominous scorpion, onto a wall in downtown Cairo. Next to it was a piece of text that began: “It is the third Eid that Sabry is spending in prison without having done anything wrong or against the law.” With this graffiti, he publicly appealed to the state for Sabry's freedom. “On the day of Arafa and the following four days of Eid, the prisoners are completely locked in,” says Sabry’s mother. Just before Eid 2016, she had made a trip to the Tora maximum security prison, whose grisly reputation has also earned it the name ”Scorpion.” To cover her son’s ...

Turkiye'nin Anayasa Referandumu: Elestirel Bir Forum

[Pazar günkü referandumunun içerdiği Anayasa değişiklikleri TBMM'de oylanırken, Ocak 2017, Yıldız Yazıcıoğlu.]

Foruma Giriş Büyük gün yakın. Önümüzdeki Pazar günü Türkiye hükümetinin yapısını baştan aşağı değiştirecek olan anayasa referandumu oylanacak. Önerilen 18 maddeden oluşan bu referandumun esas hedefi yürütme erkini elden geçirmek olup, en dikkat çeken değişim hedefi ise Başbakanlığı tamamıyla yok etmektir. Dolayısıyla Cumhurbaşkanlığı sadece sembolik bir pozisyonda kalmayıp, tam aksine yürütme erkinin tek liderine dönüşecek. Önerilen maddeler kapsamında, Cumhurbaşkanı tek başına bakan, yargıç ve diğer hükümet yetkililerini seçme ve çıkarma hakkı kazanacak. Muhalif siyasetçiler ve gazetecilere göre bu referandum Erdoğan’ın tek adam iktidarını pekiştirmeyi hedefliyor. ...

[صورة للشاعر والروائي العراقي الراحل حميد العقابي]

 حاوره: عمر الجفّال تفضّل حميد العقابي بإرسال بعض رواياته إليّ بصيغة (pdf) أواسط عام 2010 بعد أن عجزت عن الحصول عليها بنسختها الورقيّة في دمشق، وكنت قبلها قد قرأت الكثير من شعره، وخضنا حوارات "بسيطة" عبر "الجات ماسنجر" بشأن كل كتاباته، وآرائه السياسية والاجتماعية وحتّى التاريخية التي ظلّت تستهويني إلى اليوم. وفي كانون الأول / ديسمبر عام 2010 قرّرت إجراء حوار مع العقابي، وهو ما لم يمانعه، وبدا متعاوناً جدّاً، إذ أرسلت إليه أسئلة وردّ على بعضها فنشرت جزءاً من هذا الحوار في صحيفة الصباح العراقيّة، إلا أن بعض الأسئلة (وكلّها موجهّة إليه بعلم أن إجاباتها ستنشر في الصحافة) الكثير من إجابتها هنا تنشر في "جدليّة" لأوّل مرّة. وقد تعود بعض ...

This week’s Jadaliyya “Media on Media” roundup looks at several important issues affecting the Middle East and North Africa mediascape. A chemical attack in Idlib, Syria caused the death of many civilians, resulting in competing media narratives on the nature of the attack and those injured. US President Trump’s missile strike in Syria caused mixed feelings among supporters and opponents of Trump in the US and abroad, with some arguing that his decision violated Syria’s national sovereignty. In Egypt, President Abdelfattah Al-Sisi declared a state of emergency following attacks on two Coptic churches in the country during Palm Sunday, urging the media to report ...

مدن: آلتا

[صورة لمدينة التا. المصدر موقع ويكيميديا]

قبل عشر سنوات وفي واحد من الصباحات الخريفية الكئيبة أبلغني أحدهم بأنّي قد حصلت على موطن جديد. قال بأنّ مدينة صغيرة تُدعى آلتا، ترتفع بمقدار 65 متراً عن سطح البحر وتقع في عنق النرويج على الخارطة ستكون موطني ومحط رحالي. كنت يومذاك ضيفاً على محطة استقبال اللاجئين في العاصمة النرويجية أوسلو مع عشرات العراقيين الفارّين من الموت هناك. وكنا نتقاسم العيش في غرف ضيقة، تحوي كل واحدة منها ستة أشخاص يتناثرون على أسرّة خشبية مزدوجة. في الطابق العلوي للسرير المخصص لي كان ينام كاكا ميروان، الشاب الكوردي الوسيم الذي كاد يفقد حياته بسبب قُبلة رسمها على فم فتاته خلف سياج البيت. ورغم أنها قُبلة خائفة، يقول ميروان، إلا أنها جعلت منه شخصاً مشرداً ومهدداً بالقتل من قبل رجال القبيلة! أنا ...

Donald Trump’s “Unbelievably Small” Attack on Syria

[USN Tactical Tomahawk launch. U.S. Navy photo via Wikimedia Commons]

Rarely did such a limited attack as the one launched by the United States by means of cruise missiles against the Syrian air base of Shayrat provoke so much ado. US President Donald Trump authorized the attack in the evening of Thursday 6 April, shortly before having dinner with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping at his own Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. It is in all likelihood the minimal option that Barack Obama had envisaged when the Syrian regime crossed his “red line” in August 2013. In one of his memorable statements, John Kerry described that option as “a very limited, very targeted, very short-term effort,” one that would be “unbelievably small.” That the ...

حميد العقابي: عجائبي السيرة وصانع الحكايات
