My name is Magdi Abdelhadi. I am a writer and broadcaster. Former Middl East Editor at BBC News. I commute between London and Cairo. I also do media training. Views expressed here are personal, and have nothing to do with any organisation I some times work for.
Dear Maegdi, I would be very interested in reading of your views on the turmoil over Jerusalem, VP Pence’s coming visit to the region, and Egypt’s position in this predicament — do you believe that a post on this website would be appropriate? With warm wishes, Alfred
Thank you very much for continued interest in my views on the Middle East. I will definitely let you know if I do write a piece any where. I hope the turmoil will subside because I don’t think the region is in need of yet another flashpoint. Greetings
Dear Mr Abdelhadi, This is an excellent address given at Oxford in November 2017 by Professor Robert Springborg of the Italian Institute of International Affairs regarding the current security situation in Egypt, after the publication of his recent book by Polity Press on this subject: https://podcasts.ox.ac.uk/governing-divided-egypt — if you feel that it would be of interest to comment, I would appreciate reading your views on his analysis. Greetings from Italy.
Hi I have actually attended the book launch in London and he gave an excellent lecture. I have just finished reading his book. It’s superb and a must read for anyone who wants to understand why Egypt continues to fail to live up to its promise. Thank you for your interest in my views.
Hello Tunisian Sara — who are you ? Do you have a blog here ?
I am somewhat intrigued that you stumbled upon my very obscure blog out of the millions and trillions of articles on Islamism online !
The Tunisian Sara doesn’t look like a real name. That’s why I asked. 15 appears way too young for your questions!
No need to apologise for anything. We live in a free world. I was only curious.
My views on the matter are abundantly clear. Are you in any doubt ?
Are you a real person or a bot ?
where are you in Tunisia ?
I am just baffled why would you need to read about hijab in English ! My blog is primarily for English speaking people.
Do you live in the UK or France ?
Saudi Arabia of all places ! God help you
I am trying to. But traffic says you are in the UK
