@James old boy, please don't get worked up. Even if we eleminate the possibility of premeditation, the fact remains that an attempted murder took place both wilfully and intentionally. In the biker's case, however, there was no wilful or intentional attempt to kill, hence the "massive gulf between people's opinions". I really don't think this point is so difficult to understand. Then again, maybe it is for some, especially those who seem to be an authority on sixth form debate tactics.

An Opera, a great idea ! But what about classical music development? There is no professional orchestra in Dubai and in the UAE like in Qatar or in Oman.
It is almost impossible to gather musicians for a daily rehearsal without any significant budget to pay them and to pay the rent for a stage . There is no concervatory of music for teaching all instruments because it takes 15 years to reach a professional level and does not make instant money return. Once again, we will see the most prestigious orchestras and talents around the World perfoming in this opera invited by Dubai , but nothing comming from the investment on our children to offer them an opportunity to build a career in the music art like in the major cities in the world. What a pity!

First of all it's called Al Bernameg not Al Bernamed.
Secondly, I don't think there will be any influencing.
You can see already on any MBC channel or Egyptian channels many reports and reporters meetings with famous influential folks and 99% are already favoring alsisi.
Arab people are not stupid and just because someone is selling them an idea, they have to take it.
Basam Youssef is not forcing his views on anyone, and where is the so called democracy here for everyone to express his own opinion ? or democracy nowadays is confused with hypocrisy?
If anything, Bassem will at least keep things on an even keel.

The Muslim Bortherhood are nothing but a vehicle of CIA/MI5&6. There has been a link since the 1950's and documents in the public domain and numerous research books point to the very fact. Many 'entities' are used to do the 'work' of govts that those govts can not be seen to be a part of. Its not conspiracy, its historical fact. To ignore such historical facts is to ignore 'reality'.
