Egypt bans ultras in bid to break anti-government protests

By James M. Dorsey

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…

In little over 7 weeks, we will be celebrating International Women's Day for Peace & Disarmament - May 24 - again!



Women have often been at the forefront of peace and disarmament initiatives.

Militant soccer fans: Egypt’s Hans Brink plugs the dam against radicalization

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…

Gulf Alliances: Regional States Hedge Their Bets

By James M. Dorsey

The current Saudi-led intervention in Yemen designed to prevent Iranian-backed forces

from gaining power symbolises the Gulf’s new assertiveness. This is unfolding as the various

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…

Egyptian spectator ban: flashpoint for conflict and statement of weakness

By James M. Dorsey

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…

Soccer deaths renews spotlight on Egypt’s notorious security forces

By James M. Dorsey

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.

Amid security forces holding fans and fans holding police responsible and conflicting assertions of the number of people who died…

Ottawa Shooting: Keep Calm & Carry On

The symbolism of the events taking place on Wednesday October 22 in Ottawa could not be more cruel. Shots fired below the tower called "peace," a young man gunned down, dressed in military gear but unarmed, protecting the grave of the unknown solider meant to remind us- "never again." 

Yet, the reactions by Canadian leaders, public officials, media…
