The world expects an historic agreement to be reached at the Paris COP 21.
World leaders must recognize that climate change is not just an environmental issue, but also a threat to security and stability, and a human rights challenge. It is an issue without borders and the most adversely affected are not the ones who created the problem.
In today's negotiations, we must call on world leaders to recognize and include the voices of women who have been battling…Continue

An Egyptian court has banned militant soccer fan groups or ultras as terrorist organizations in a bid to break the backbone of anti-government protests.
The ruling at the request of Mortada Mansour, the controversial, larger than life president of Cairo’s storied Al Zamalek SC who alleged that his club’s ultras, the Ultras White Knights (UWK), tried to assassinate him, pushes further underground groups that often offer despairing youth a rare opportunity to vent…

Said Moshagheb, a mesmerizingly charismatic, under‐educated and unemployed leader of a prominent group of militant, well-organized, and street battle-hardened soccer fans, staged a coup five years ago against the founders and original leaders of the Ultras White Knights (UWK), the storied support group of Zamalek SC, one of Egypt’s most celebrated clubs.
The impact of the takeover is today increasingly evident on the embattled campuses of Egyptian universities and in poorer…Continue

Gulf states seek to hedge their bets with different strategies that complement rather than
replace the regional US security umbrella.
Qatar this month signed a military agreement with Turkey which gives the two parties the
right to deploy…Continue

An Egyptian Cabinet decision to end the suspension of professional soccer in late March but reinstitute the ban on spectators attending matches could spark renewed clashes between militant fans and security forces. The decision against the backdrop of mounting evidence that Egyptian general-turned-President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi has no apparent intention of easing repression implicitly acknowledges the role of fans in continued widespread opposition to his…Continue

A stampede at a Cairo stadium earlier this month, much like a politically-loaded soccer brawl in the Suez Canal city of Port Said three years ago, is shining a spotlight on Egypt’s unreformed, unabashedly violent, and politically powerful police and security forces amid confusion over what precisely happened and how many fans died.
