Sisi’s regime and Egypt’s Foreign Policy towards Yemen and Israel, by Styliani Vlachopoulou

On June 8, 2014, Field Marshall Abdel Fattah el-Sisi was sworn in as Egypt’s seventh president.

  • In another example of Saudi "justice," Badawi's lawyer, Walid Abu'l-Khayr, was jailed. He was sentenced to 15 years in jail, to be followed by a 15-year travel ban.
  • What is happening to Badawi is a perfect reminder to anyone who claims to be "offended" by "Islamophobia" why it might exist, who is to blame for it, and that it is precisely behavior such as this that justifies it.
