Egypt: Interview on Human Rights With Saad Eddin Ibrahim

Thanks to Diane's suggestion who made a comment on the August 17 post, this is a video interview in English with Dr. Saad Eddin Ibrahim, Professor of Political Sociology at the American University in Cairo, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Ibn Khaldoun Centre for Development Studies.

This is the first part. The second one will be posted soon.

The human rights activist and scholar discusses several aspects relating to personal freedoms in Egypt and civil rights of several minority groups. He also describes the struggle of Egyptian Baha'is and their inability to obtain ID Cards as has been presented in previous posts on this blog.

The interview was conducted by Sally Bishai. (Credit: X Culture Films)


  1. There you have it, 22 years and progress can be measured ;-) 22 years from the prospective of Egyptian civilization isn't so long. However, in modern societies, 3-5 years represents a generation of change in technology that can affect peoples' lives.

  2. Hope is always there! It is only a matter of time....
