September 13:  Dr. Rudolf de Jong Bedouin Dialects of the Sinai Desert Through the ages, the northern Sinai Desert has served as the natural land bridge between Asia and Africa.

Egypt is a gift of the Nile and the Egyptian freedom is a gift of Tahrir. Every time I give the Tahriri Tour -- from evolution to revolution -- I reload it as we, Egyptians, continue the struggle to eliminate the micro-Mubaraks from the sclerotic institu
