Venezuela: Nothing After You Reach Bottom

Like other countries, Venezuela’s young are eager to explore the world. Every opportunity to learn becomes important in the formation of the young mind. In Venezuela, a crippled education system prevents normal development. While the well-born go to private schools and have access to every benefit, the mass of Venezuela’s students confront an educational system that tells them: “You can’t but you tried.”
The most embarrassing and painful thing about the deplorable state of the country’s schools is the level of the government’s indifference. Though the government of Nicolás Maduro offers programmes like “Simoncito”, “Mision Ribas” and “Mision Robinson” these is basic education that doesn’t adequately prepare students to pursue higher studies. The programmes seem to condemn the disadvantaged among Venezuela’s population to a remedial existence. If some of these children make it to higher education, the odds are stacked against them and their families.
In the end, it all comes down to money. Venezuela needs to spend more to let students be students. But with foreign reserves short, all but national priorities are left off the funding list. Every area of science instruction needs improvement. Budgets are not even close to covering the costs of labs, let alone providing learning aids or even actual textbooks. A prize-winning robotics team at Caracas’ Universidad Simon Bolivar works with outdated electronics that are often patched together. When the team wanted to take part in an international competition, they were denied assistance — meaning just a few of the team could do it because that was all they could afford to pay out of their own pockets. Another group, which took part in the Latin American conference of the model UN, found themselves staying in primitive conditions in Mexico because they were denied dollars, the currency they needed to pay bills. Despite the discomfort, the group won six awards.
Even with the obvious deficiencies in education, Venezuela has a large population of well-prepared professionals across a wide spectrum of expertise. But based on political affiliations, these people cannot work for the development of the nation. No wonder Venezuelans have begun to leave the country in search of a better future for themselves and their families. This exodus is manifesting itself worst of all among teachers. The ramshackle education system can ill afford this brain drain. But, again, it’s understandable when even those with advanced degrees from internationally respected institutions earn less than approximately £40 per month. When the government’s own basic food basket is priced at nearly £200 per month, it’s impossible to support a family without second or third jobs. Under strict rules, teachers are not allowed to apply for the loans that could support home or car ownership. In effect, teachers are sentenced to live with relatives for life. Yet they continue to teach out of love for the craft with the hope they they can raise a new generation of Venezuelans who can think for themselves and question dogma. Without them, the youth of Venezuela would be lost.
In recent interviews, the educational minister Hector Rodriguez said: “We are not going to take you out of poverty for you to go and become opposites.” His statement meant that Venezuela’s students should understand that their wings are already clipped and any dream of progress or improvement is invalid.
The government’s approach to education aims to make Venezuelans think it has the absolute truth and will decide what’s right for students. The lower classes won’t have any choice but to believe what they are told.
After 15 years Venezuelans have become accustomed to waiting for the government to wave a magic wand to provide what they need. The sense of personal responsibility now seems lost. Effort doesn’t deliver results, so Venezuelans don’t try. It’s an indirect way for the government to choose a person’s destiny.
At the same time, scarcity – and not just in an educational sense – is the new normal. Everyday basics like toilet paper, coffee or cooking oil are the subjects of long hunts that lead to the back of an equally long queue. Hospitals cancel operations for lack of supplies and cancer patients miss treatment for lack of medicine. And even though the government’s late March devaluation of the bolivar will fill the shelves in the shops, the average Venezuelan will be unable to afford the supplies.
For the government, scarcity is just a glitch — just like the blackouts when “iguanas eat the cables” – and not because the energy minister is not doing his job.
It’s impossible to walk down streets without being paranoid — one eye on the road and the other keeping watch of everything around you. On average 48 people are murdered in the country every day. Venezuelans can be beaten and robbed with no recourse to justice because the police and the criminals are often in partnership.
The Bolivarian Revolution was supposed to bring improvements, but the lack of daily essentials and a robust education system leads one to the conclusion: The basement has a bottom.

The Egyptian Grassroots Movement That Helped The Military Get Rid of Marzi Wants to be a Political Party

FILE -  An Egyptian activist covers her face with an application for "Tamarod," Arabic for "rebel," a campaign calling for the ouster of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and for early presidential elections, during a protest in Tahrir Square, Cairo. The Egyptian grassroots movement that boasts bringing down ex-President Mohamed Morsi is now seeking a spot in government. But even as Tamarod inspires similar movements abroad, the group remains dogged by the question - is it a player or a pawn?

While Egyptian leaders continue their crackdown on Islamist opponents, they are also trying to move forward on a roadmap for political change.

And one of their biggest backers in the overhaul, the Tamarod, or Rebellion, movement is moving along with them.

The public face of outcry against Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, Tamarod says it will compete nationally in new elections for parliament.

Founding member Mohamed Heikal says Tamarod has changed its focus.

He says Tamarod has “shifted from a protest movement to a movement of reconstruction and that there is a lot to rebuild."

The nation is torn apart by the military's crackdown on Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood and what many Islamists and others see as the subversion of democracy.

But Tamarod spokesman Hisham Goran defends the military's path.

He said, “They are handling it in the right way and we are going on the Road Map in the right way and you have to know that all the political parties and the people are together with the army. We are going to stand against this terrorism now.”

While other groups in Egypt's long-fractured opposition rejected the military's call for a mandate against “terrorism,” Tamarod stood by its side.

Its support raised further questions of how this small group, seemingly quixotic in its quest to topple a president, found in two months the means and organizational skills to rally millions.

Leaders deny any help from security forces in launching their anti-Morsi campaign, and are adamant they never met with officials before Morsi's July 3 ouster.
Spokeswoman Mai Wahba dismisses criticism the group is a pawn of greater forces.

She says Tamarod is not the voice of the army and never will be. She calls the group the “voice of the nation.” She says “the public commands and the army implements.”

Certainly Tamarod's voice is not always unified. Like other opposition parties, it has its internal rifts, with dissent most recently over whom to back for president - military leader General Abdel Fattah el-Sissi, or Nasserite politician Hamdeen Sabahi.

But in most cases, Tamarod has proven more nationalist than the new leadership itself. They called for rejecting U.S. aid to Egypt even before Washington made cuts.  Wahba has been in the vanguard of anti-Americanism.

She says she sees the U.S. as “big supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood” and thus regards America as “a supporter of terrorism.”

Tamarod also strongly opposed possible U.S. strikes last month against the Syrian government, which the group sees as a defender against Islamism. Leaders called, in vain, for closing the Suez Canal to U.S. warships.

Whatever its origins, Tamarod's anti-Islamist brand appears to be spreading. On November 11, a newly-minted Tamarod movement in the Palestinian Gaza Strip plans to protest against its Islamist rulers, Ham

In Amazing Pics and Video Civilians Join Forces with The Police Against the Brotherhood in Egypt

  • Screen capture fom video below.
  • In the middle of the day on Sunday, deadly clashes broke out in Cairo between supporters and opponents of the Muslim Brotherhood. From his windowsill, our Observer filmed civilians abusing an alleged supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood as police officers looked on. This evidence of collusion between civilians and the authorities shocked our Observer.
  • The clashes broke out during celebrations marking Egypt’s victory against Israel in the 1973 war, during which Egypt took back the Sinai Peninsula. On Saturday evening, demonstrators gathered on Tahrir Square to express their support for the Egyptian government, especially for the Chief of Staff, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi , Egypt’s new strongman since the army takeover. But on Sunday, while Muslim Brotherhood supporters were approaching the square to stage a counter-protest, fighting broke out. Each side is blaming the other for this day of violence during which 51 civilians were killed.
  • The Egyptian government had warned the Muslim Brotherhood, a political organisation that is now illegal in Egypt, against staging any anti-army protests during the anniversary celebrations.
  • “The police has picked a side in these conflicts, namely the most power ful side”
  • Wael Eskandar is a journalist and blogger in Cairo.
  • My sister and I filmed this footage from an apartment above Tahrir Street [also known as Behouth Street]. Before we started filming, we saw thousands of Muslim Brotherhood protesters walking down the avenue below us toward Tahrir Square. They were coming from Sudan Street. Just as they were starting to disappear from our view, we heard gunshots, and the pro-Muslim Brotherhood group began to backtrack. They destroyed everything on their way.
  • We saw them ransack a bank, tear down signs, and trash building entrances. A doorman who works in this avenue told me shortly afterwards that one of the men had fired a shot into his building’s lobby. After this, we saw an anti-Muslim Brotherhood group come back. They had just caught a man, most likely a Muslim Brotherhood supporter. You can see very clearly on our footage that they are holding him down and beating him repeatedly [the man is shirtless, and is dragged by the hair. At the 1’00 minute mark, police vehicles drive by but do not intervene].

  • At this point, two armoured police vehicles make their way through the crowd. They seem to be unfazed by the fact that protesters are beating up a man. After speaking briefly with men in the crowd, the policemen in the armoured vehicle decide to keep driving. I could not hear what they said. And I don’t know what happened to this man afterwards.
  • “This only strengthens the Muslim Brotherhood’s propaganda”
  • This neighbourhood is very close to Bein el-Sarayat, an area known for being particularly hostile to the Muslim Brotherhood, in particular since Brotherhood members killed several local residents last July. The crowd most likely contained many residents of that neighbourhood looking for payback. But there were also probably plainclothes policemen too. I don’t have any proof of this, but it’s a very common strategy lately [AFP journalists noted the presence of armed plainclothes policemen chasing Muslim Brotherhood supporters alongside civilians last Sunday].
  • This pattern is not new. The police fought alongside the Muslim Brotherhood against opponents in the past. The police are choosing a side in these conflicts, namely the side of power. It’s strategic; they choose to support those who will ensure the survival of the police corps. But it’s completely unprofessional.
  • I am strongly opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood, but events such as these are deplorable. Not only does it violate the basic rights of all Egyptians, it also weakens the democratic character of our movement and strengthens the Muslim Brotherhood’s propaganda.

General al Sisi: Egypt’s future president?

General al Sisi: Egypt’s future president?  

One of the most frequently asked questions in Egypt today is whether the wildly popular General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who ousted the country's first democratically elected president, will run for president himself.

By Marc DAOU (text)
Ever since the military coup that overthrew former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi on July 3, General Abdel Fattah al Sisi has worn several hats: commander-in-chief of Egypt’s armed forces, minister of defence and first deputy prime minister.
But is he is eyeing the presidency?
If Egypt’s mainstream media and political power circles had it their way, the answer would be yes.
Though an election is not planned until 2014, a publicity campaign singing al Sisi’s praises has been in full swing for several weeks in the North African country. Between TV commercials, groups on social networking sites and posters in the street, Egypt seems to have “al Sisi fever”.
A campaign orchestrated by the authorities
“Egypt army chief El Sisi pushed towards presidential run”, a headline in state-owned Egyptian daily al-Ahram read last Monday. The article explained that the speculation swirling about al Sisi’s presidential ambitions is the result of his popularity, which has soared in recent months.

“Talk shows and newspaper columns have, for the past month, been advocating the idea of the general running for president in order to fight the terrorist threat that they say the country is facing,” the article’s author, Zeinab El Gundy, wrote.
Local media are also buzzing about the widespread support for an al Sisi presidency. Various groups, including one called “Al Sisi President”, have been lobbying for the general to run, circulating petitions in the hope that millions of signatures will convince him to do so – despite the fact that al Sisi himself has publicly denied any such ambition.
“It is clear that these campaigns are at least partially orchestrated by the authorities,” Masri Feki, a researcher in geopolitics at University of Paris 8, told FRANCE 24.
A worthy successor to Nasser?
According to Feki, the pro-al-Sisi front has caught on in part because the general is so well liked. “He’s incontestably popular,” Feki noted. “One mustn’t forget that in the Middle East, in countries that are just learning democracy, people like seeing a virile, authoritative man in power, someone who makes firm decisions.”
Many in Egypt compare al Sisi to the most popular president in Egypt’s history: Gamal Abdel Nasser.
“Both men both struggled against the Muslim Brotherhood, which makes al Sisi the favoured candidate among Egyptians looking for a successor to Nasser,” Feki said.
One former Egyptian diplomat, who served in Europe under former President Hosni Mubarak, told FRANCE 24 under condition of anonymity that “given his popularity, whether it’s real or exaggerated by state-sponsored media, the general has no rival of his stature, no one who has the same legitimacy at this moment”.
The diplomat also noted that current conditions in Egypt are right for an al Sisi candidacy. “Egypt’s domestic situation, notably security issues and the economic crisis, work to his advantage, because the people feel they need a strong leader,” he said. “That’s perfect for the man who played a role of saviour by overthrowing the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Moreover, any other presidential candidate would be governing in al-Sisi’s shadow if elected, the diplomat offered, “unless he managed to sideline al Sisi, which today is unimaginable”.
Even Amr Moussa, a prominent figure of the opposition to Morsi and former presidential candidate in 2012, has conceded that al Sisi would win the election if he ran.
It remains to be seen if the general will cede to pressure or convince one of his closest allies to run in his place.
“Egyptian history is full of examples of people who swore they were not interested before eventually becoming president, and nothing is to prevent al Sisi from resigning from his military post to run for president,” Feki explained. “If he chooses to run and wins, Egyptians will just have to make sure that the elections were closely monitored.”

Who is a Terrorist in Egypt?

The Egyptian government is ratcheting up its war on words, using the word "terrorism" to isolate the Muslim Brotherhood

August 3, 2013

Egyptian General Abdel Fattah el-Sissi has emerged as the key leader in the interim military government. As 
VOA's Elizabeth Arrott reports from Cairo, the general rose from obscurity, was chosen by then President Mohamed Morsi to lead the armed forces last year, and then went on to unseat him.

That only goes tot ell you how little Mosri new the army or how little he knew how to govern. What he had done is bring everyone he could from the Moslem brotherhood to help him government, of which became to look more and more asa Moslem Theocracy. Any Smart military man most’ve know what was happening and beautiful Egypt was on the way of another Lebanon or Syria. Something had to be done and despite of some funny indignation from the uS and others, they knew particularly the US that the status quo was real bad for everyone.

Kerry Says Egypt’s Army is Restoring Democracy { What Democracy? } Why did Morsi Fail?

US Secretary of State John Kerry

US Secretary of State John Kerry has said Egypt's military was "restoring democracy" when it ousted elected President Mohammed Morsi last month.
 First I don’t understand why Sc. of State Kerry uses the word “Restoring” when they (Egyptians) have not had democracy ever to restore. So I don’t know what restoration he is talking about. If he means the last time they voted and got Morsi, that was very far from democracy. People in Cuba vote every four years but Im sure Kerry will not call it a Democracy. I understand the Army is trying to correct the two headed monster that sometimes elections for the hell to have election give life to.They are not planned well giving people information and then protecting the system from corruption. The Military was in a rush because of the United States putting pressure on  them to get it done or there would be a cut off of the aid given. If the President never said, many in the government did (both parties).

The voting was controlled by one side as both a case of corruption on the Moslem brotherhood and ignorance on the other side. Ignorance how democracies or countries close to democracy work. If you don’t vote because you are pissed you invalidated your vote for you but gave it to the other side. You most know the consequences if you don’t vote. You most know how to get along and hate at the same time without killing your opponent. You have to compromise without giving in things that you did not have but are looking to get now and I don’t mean religion.  In this case they got a repressive government driving the institution of government to a Moslem Theocracy and with it all the rights that they even had under a dictatorship were taken away. 
The way they moslems/ christians apply any religion is not compatible with a modern world unless they see whatever bible they need to go by a living instrument that changes to adapt as human beings change. Both the human and the physical world of today has very little to do with 2 to 8000 years ago. Some people are so tired of the insistence to semi live as 2000 years ago that they just give up on the whole idea of religion, which makes more sense to them.
You can not put the church or any religion in power over the population because then it will govern by people that know religion and will pursue the growth of the religion not the growth of those being govern. That was the point in our amendment to our constitution in the USA in which it separates the church from the government but even then you can see the massive power that religion has in the country. They constantly violate the law by telling people how to vote and in cases from keeping people from voting. 
Hopefully the third time is a charm but the army is going to have to take an anti moslem stance otherwise they wont be able to have a secular person govern. These people were fairly quiet under the past two presidents of Egypt but when the revolution occurred they took out they knives and daggers.
They need to have uN or any other group to educate this people on elections.
It’s not going to be easy to control them again)Moslem brotherhood) and as we see it takes a lot of bodies on the streets to accomplish that but there would be even more bodies if the Morsi people were allowed to run their show the way the wanted too. A revolution should end when the objectives have been met, It seems that Washington with the words of Kerry is giving ‘Now” is giving them the time they need. Rushing this is worse. 
The BBC's Jim Muir says there is a defiant mood in the camp with protesters willing to die for President Morsi 
Mr Kerry said the removal was at the request of "millions and millions of people".
His remarks came as police prepare to disperse two pro-Morsi sit-ins in the capital, Cairo.
Egypt's interior ministry has promised Mr Morsi's supporters "safe exit" if they quickly leave the camps.
The country's cabinet on Wednesday ordered police to end the protests, calling them a "national security threat".
'Asked to intervene'
Rabaa al-Adawiya camp, Cairo
Washington has refused to describe Mr Morsi's removal as a "coup". Doing so would require the US government to cut off its estimated $1.5bn (£1bn) in annual aid to Egypt.
Correspondents say Mr Kerry's latest comments will be seen in Egypt as supportive of the interim government.
In an television interview in Pakistan, Mr Kerry said: "The military was asked to intervene by millions and millions of people, all of whom were afraid of a descendance into chaos, into violence.
"And the military did not take over, to the best of our judgement - so far. To run the country, there's a civilian government. In effect, they were restoring democracy."
Mr Kerry also warned against further bloodshed, according to AFP news agency.
He said Washington was "very, very concerned" about the killing of dozens of pro-Morsi protesters in clashes with security forces, calling it "absolutely unacceptable".
Thousands of supporters of Mr Morsi have defied new warnings from the military-backed cabinet by continuing their sit-ins.
The main protest camp is at a square near the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque in the capital's north-east, where clashes left some 70 people dead last Saturday, and in Nahda Square near the main campus of Cairo University.
Demonstrators there have already ignored previous threats of dispersal.

It came after mass rallies in which millions of Egyptians calling for his removal took to the streets.
They want to see Mr Morsi - Egypt's first democratically elected president - reinstated. The Islamist leader was removed by the army on 3 July, after just one year in office.
Egypt's interior ministry released a statement on Thursday saying it called "on those in Rabaa al-Adawiya and Nahda squares to let reason and the national interest prevail, and to quickly leave".
The ministry "pledges a safe exit and full protection to whoever responds to this appeal", it added.
Ministry spokesman Hany Abdel Latif told Reuters there was "no specified date" for the removal.
Supporters of Mr Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood movement have remained defiant.

Essam el-Erian, vice-president of the Freedom and Justice Party, the Brotherhood's political wing, said the protesters would not be deterred.
"There are expectations of a massacre taking place in front of the eyes of the whole world," he said.
"The free people in Egypt and the world must stand against this stupid cabinet mandate for the police to end the sit-in protests."
An African Union delegation confirmed on Wednesday that it had met Mr Morsi, who has not been seen in public since being ousted.
He had received no official visitors until Tuesday, when he met EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton who said he was "well".
The ousted leader has been formally remanded in custody at an undisclosed location, according to a judicial order.
He has been accused of the "premeditated murder of some prisoners, officers and soldiers" when he and several Muslim Brotherhood leaders were freed during a breakout at a Cairo prison in January 2011.
He is alleged to have plotted attacks on jails in the uprising that overthrew President Hosni Mubarak.
Mr Morsi is also accused of conspiring with the Palestinian militant group Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip and has strong links with the Muslim Brotherhood.

In a Rare Instance The Egyptian Military Asks For Demonstrations

Egypt's army chief has called for demonstrations on Friday to give the military a mandate to confront "violence and potential terrorism".
Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said he was not calling for public unrest and wanted national reconciliation.
Supporters of Mohammed Morsi have been protesting against the army intervention which removed him as president of Egypt on 3 July.
But the Muslim Brotherhood dismissed Gen Sisi's call as a "threat".
  He called Gen Sisi "a coup leader who kills women, children and those at prayer”. 
Essam El-Erian, deputy chairman of the Brotherhood's political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), said: "Your threat will not stop the millions from continuing to gather."
Army 'united'
In a speech at a military graduation ceremony, which was broadcast on television, Gen Sisi said: "I urge the people to take to the streets this coming Friday to prove their will and give me, the army and police, a mandate to confront possible violence and terrorism."
"So that in case there was a resort to violence and terrorism, the army would have a mandate to confront this."
 Our correspondent says that Gen Sisi's call showed who was really in charge in Egypt - not the interim president picked by the military, Adly Mahmud Mansour, but the military itself.
It also followed an overnight bomb attack on a police station in Mansoura, 110 km (68 miles) north of Cairo, that killed one person and wounded two dozen others.
He says it may be a sign of frustration that protests against the interim government are still going on.
A government spokesman condemned it as a terrorist attack.
In Cairo, two people were reported to have been killed in clashes at a pro-Morsi demonstration overnight. That followed nine deaths in the city on Tuesday.
Gen Sisi, who is also the defence minister in the new government, rejected rumours about divisions within the army ranks. "I swear by God that the Egyptian army is united," he said.
Referring to the army's intervention to remove Mr Morsi early this month, Gen Sisi said: "I urged the former president to be a president for all Egyptians".
And, recalling the 2012 presidential election when Mr Morsi was voted into office, he said that he had advised Islamists not to field a presidential candidate - but that they had ignored him.

Egypt Revolution in a Few pictures Noting that the US Got Blame for Supporting Mr.Morsi

  Elections are great but unless th participation is good and all the sides agree how it works before going in, there could be more problems than solutions on such elections. Egypt being the poster child.
Being the day after the fourth of july in  the USA and the second day in which the Muslim brotherhood Own president is Booted Out by people that took to the streets knowing they had been cheated on the elections. Those things don’t happen here. As you know we had presidents loosing the lection on both count and electoral college counts and ended up 8 years and this particular one started two wars with their eyes on the third one with Iran.

President Morsi has been toppled by the military. The Muslim Brotherhood must be a tad disappointed that a secular dictatorship is back in charge. Will they back any new Government? Or will they try to usurp it? 

Morsi said “I am prepared to sacrifice my blood”. Things are messy.
The Big Pharaoh explains what is going on:
The failure of Westerners to understand why Egyptians revolted against an elected regime is stemming from the fact that they, the Westerners, are secured in their inclusive constitutions, bills of rights and rule of law. We have nothing of these. We only had one facet of democracy – election – which brought a cultic organization with a fascist twist that decided to cancel the other facets.
So. what about the Obama administration? It’s man has gone. Obama had been supporting Egyptian President Morsi. Obama’s Egypt Policy is confused. He missed the chance to make the USA the good guys. Now he scrambles for irrelevance, at best.
